Roger Parry and Partners have been managing rental properties for over 30 years in Shrewsbury, Shropshire and the surrounding area and have a dedicated team of professional and knowledgeable staff. Over the years we have understood that different landlords require different types of service, therefore we try to tailor our service to fit the individual needs of the client. We offer free advice and a valuation service with professional lettings advice.
Roger Parry and Partners pride themselves on a flexible service and offer two options, namely a Let Only Option and a Management Option. Below are the details in relation to the two services offered:
This service includes the following:
A free valuation and appraisal of the property will be carried out, establishing the landlord’s criteria and goals; discussing the options available to them and advising accordingly.
Carrying out all viewings and sourcing suitable applicants. All properties are advertised (unless instructed otherwise) in the local press, on Rightmove & Zoopla together with our own website.
When an applicant wishes to apply for a property, they are required to complete an initial application process where full referencing is carried out. Within 48 hours we are able to advise whether the applicants have passed the referencing process.
The full reference includes:
Our aim is to provide you with the best and most suitable tenant possible. Following a successful reference process the landlord is always fully consulted and ultimately makes the final decision.
Whilst we use a standard Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement (AST), we take into account any specific requirements that the landlord or property requires. The agreements are for an initial period of six months, which can continue until the landlord gives 2 months’ notice or the tenant gives one months’ notice. The agreement is drafted in a way that allows it to be rolled on as a periodic tenancy, which negates the need and cost of renewing the agreement at the end of the fixed period.
We produce a comprehensive detailed inventory of the property, stating its condition and contents prior to the commencement of the tenancy, including photographs and records of all meter readings and other fuel levels. A copy of this document is supplied to both tenant and landlord.
We collect the agreed security deposit from the ingoing tenant which is then passed on to the Deposit Protection Service (DPS). The DPS is a government licensed body which holds the deposit during the period of the tenancy. The landlord can make deductions from the deposit if issues arise at the end of the tenancy, however, there is a set procedure that has to be followed in order to ensure that any reasonable deductions can be upheld. This is where Roger Parry and Partners can advise and ensure the best outcome for the landlord.
It is a legal requirement for the landlords to supply prospective tenants with a current EPC for any property being let, excluding listed properties which do not require an EPC. Some landlords may already have this documentation, however, if not, we can arrange for one to be obtained. The normal cost is between £50 and £100 depending on the size of the property including floor plan. Although the floor plan is optional, we do find prospective tenants find these helpful and can assist in getting a property let more quickly.
As a guide our normal fee rate would be equivalent to the first month's rent inclusive of VAT. This includes all marketing costs but would exclude the EPC or any other relevant certification required.
Our management option includes all the above, plus:
The cost of our standard management option is 60% of the first month's rent inclusive of VAT to find and set up the first tenant (future re-lets are £180 inclusive of VAT) then 12% of the rental income received including VAT from the second month and thereafter.
We offer a specialist service for prospective or existing landlords who are looking to acquire suitable properties to start or add to an existing rental portfolio. We realise as Estate Agents there is a need for assistance in purchasing your property as well as providing a management service. We can provide the following service:
For further information on our services, please contact Peter Lowarch on 01743 343343.
Roger Parry and Partners are a member of ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents) and Property Ombudsman, we thereby have an obligation to adhere to their professional codes of practice.
If you wish to view a property, there is certain information that we will require from you in order to proceed:
This information ensures that your criteria can be checked with any requirements our landlords have stipulated and speeds up the process.
Although comprehensive information for all our rental properties can be found on this website, if you have any specific requirements please discuss them with a member of our lettings team so that we can ensure the suitability of any property is established prior to arranging a viewing. Where appropriate we will inform you whether you will be meeting the landlord, the present tenant or a representative of Roger Parry and Partners.
Until an application is confirmed as acceptable, the property is still available to prospective tenants.
Following a viewing, prospective tenants wishing to apply for a property must contact the letting office in Shrewsbury who will give you details of how to make an application.
The application form can be completed online or by hand and a referencing fee of £30.00 per applicant including VAT must be paid at this time which will cover a full reference. No refunds will be given.
If a Guarantor is required, they must also pay £30.00 for a full reference.
Providing the referencing process is successful, approval will then be sought from the Landlord. A payment of £200.00 inclusive of VAT must then be paid by the applicant for the Tenancy Agreement fee and other associated documents. No refund will be given if the applicant withdraws prior to the start of the tenancy.
If a Guarantor is required, a further fee of £50.00 inclusive of VAT will be required.
Please note the final decision and acceptance of an application is always left to the landlord and it will be our obligation to follow those instructions.
NB: If refused, which is rare, we are not always in a position to discuss the reasons why your application may have failed.
