How to Find the Best Letting Agents in Manchester

If you're planning on renting a property in Manchester, then you'll need to find a reputable letting agent to help you. But with so many agents to choose from, how do you know that you're picking the right one?

If you haven’t let out a property to a tenant before, or you don’t live in the area, then you need to rely on property experts to find quality renters and run your property and collect the rent.

Here are a few tips from the friendly letting experts at Bergins to help you find the best letting agents in Manchester:

· First, make sure the agent is a member of ARLA – the Association of Residential Letting Agents, or the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA). These organisations have strict codes of conduct and provide their members with ongoing training to ensure they are up to date with the latest legislation.

· Next, check that the agent is registered with the Property Redress Scheme (PRS). The PRS provides a free and independent service for resolving disputes between consumers and property agents. There’s also the Property Ombudsman which is also a redress scheme.

· Finally, ask the agent for references from past clients. A reputable letting agent will be more than happy to provide you with contact details for some of their previous landlord clients.

Once you have narrowed down your search to a few letting agents, you should arrange to meet with them in person. This will give you the opportunity to ask them any questions you may have and to get a feel for their professionalism.

Also, you should shortlist an estate agent in Manchester who also deals with lettings – such as Bergins - so it’s worth looking at their offerings too.

When meeting with letting agents, be sure to ask about their fees and charges. Many agents will charge a percentage of the rent

By following these tips, you can be sure you're finding the best letting agent in Manchester for your needs.

It is important to ask about fees and charges, as well as the agent's policies on dealing with repairs and how they will chase up late payers.

You also need to be reassured that the tenant’s deposit will be protected – this is the law and there’s a hefty financial penalty for those who don’t comply.

Once you have found an agent for your Manchester lettings that you are happy with, be sure to sign a contract that clearly sets out the terms of your agreement. This will help to avoid any misunderstandings in the future.

And if you have any questions about what letting agents do - and what they can do for you - then you need to speak with the Bergins team today.

Dear Tony and the Staff of Bergin’s, On behalf of my sisters and myself I would like to thank you all for your advice, and support with regard to the sale of our late parent’s house. You took all the strain from us at a very sad time in our lives. We all would recommend you and your company to anyone. Kind Regard and wishing you every success in the future.

Dear Tony and Mike I just had to write to say thank you once again for everything you have done for us. The thought of having to sell my late fathers house was filling me with absolute dread, having never bought or sold a property before I didn't know where to start. From the moment I met you though I felt completely at ease, you took all the stress and worry away and within 24 hours the house had been sold and you had arranged a lovely solicitor to take care of the legal side. I'm still amazed at how smoothly everything was, especially as I have 3 siblings who were also involved in the process. I keep seeing houses that have been on the market for a while and I want to knock and say, "get in touch with Tony and Mike at Bergins, they'll soon have your house sold". Thank you again guys for everything, you run a top class business

A brilliant brilliant service I can't thank you enough. I wish you both the very best for the future
