Roger Parry and Partners have been managing rental properties for over 30 years in Shropshire, mid Wales 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:

Let Only Option

Fees: 100% of one month’s rent including VAT (Minimum fee £480 including VAT)

This includes all marketing costs but would exclude the EPC or any other relevant certification required.

This service includes the following:

Valuation and Appraisal

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) 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 form. Once the landlord has selected which applicant they would like to proceed with, we begin the referencing process.

The full reference includes:

  • Right to Rent (England only)
  • ID Check/Proof of Identity
  • Bank references or Credit Rating
  • Employers / accountants references (if applicant is self employed)
  • Previous landlord reference (if relevant)

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.

Legal Documentation

Whilst we use a standard Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement (AST) in England and Occupation Contracts in Wales, 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 or the tenant gives notice to leave. The agreements are usually 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.

Drafting of a Professional Inventory

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.

Tenancy Deposits

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.

Management Option

Fee: An initial letting fee of 60% of the first months rent including VAT & 12% including VAT of the monthly rent collected thereafter

Our management option includes everything in the Let Only option, plus:

  • Collection of future rental payments
  • Acting as the first point of contact with regards to maintenance issues, problems arising from the tenancy and liaising with our landlord accordingly
  • Organising maintenance and repairs at the property as and when required.
  • Dealing with rent reviews and final notices as and when required.
  • Carrying out inspections at the property as required and agreed with the landlord.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)

It is a legal requirement for the landlords to supply prospective tenants with at least an EPC E rating, unless they have registered a valid exemption. Some landlords may already have this documentation, however, if not, we can arrange for one to be obtained. The normal cost is between £75 and £95 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.

Buy to Let Investment

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:

  • General pre offer advice
  • Negotiating the purchase on your behalf
  • Providing a building condition survey
  • Re-negotiating if the survey proves substantial repairs are required
  • Liaising with your solicitor
  • Management of the let property

Rent Smart Wales

Since 23 November 2015, all Landlords with privately rented property let out on a domestic tenancy in Wales are legally required to register with Rent Smart Wales in order to comply with the law. If a landlord chooses to manage the property themselves they also need to complete the Rent Smart Wales Landlord Training and be licensed. Alternatively, if we are appointed as Managing Agents then the landlord just needs to be registered with Rent Smart Wales. Roger Parry & Partners are licensed with Rent Smart Wales.

Deposit Protection Service

At Roger Parry & Partners we use the Deposit Protection Service to ensure deposits are secure throughout the tenancy.

The Tenant Fees Act that came into force on 1st June 2019 makes it illegal for landlords and letting agents to charge certain fees in connection with a tenancy. A key part of the legislation is that tenancy security deposits are now capped at the equivalent of 5-weeks’ rent for assured-shorthold tenancies with an annual rent of up to £50,000, or 6-weeks’ rent for tenancies with an annual rent of £50,000 or more.
