We can handle the entire process
We handle the payments from the tenant to ourselves and place the deposit into the Governments mandatory deposit protection scheme.
We in turn, on a monthly basis, pay you the rental received less our commission rate, less any ongoing maintenance work required. If the property needs ongoing maintenance work we will then ask trusted contractors known to us to quote for works to be done.
We then send you these to approve before any work is carried out, unless they are relatively small amounts (which you may want us to proceed with without immediate authorisation at a pre-set limit).
After the check-in we undertake approximately 3 monthly property inspections. When the tenant wishes to vacate we can instruct the optional checkout inventory, advise on refreshing the property after normal wear and tear and aim to re-list the property and minimise any void period, generally we are given plenty of notice by the outgoing tenants so we can re-list the property and have someone move in just after the last tenant has moved out once again to minimise any non-rental void period.
We aim to be available when you need us, we are here before and after working hours Monday to Sunday 8:00am to 8:00pm.
As an independent flexible Estate Agent our costs are keen, and any savings are happily passed onto our clients. We are office based so do not incur the overheads of a high street shop, this means we keep client friendly hours instead of shop hours. With our refreshing honest approach, we can help you put the fun back into achieving your goal within our local property market.
- Potential purchasers can call us Monday to Sunday 8:00am to 8:00pm.
- All viewings will be carried out by a professional team member familiar with your property, (not casual weekend staff – who have yet to view your property).
- We are flexible and will meet all prospective purchasers at your property to suit yourdiary and lifestyle schedules.
- We attract more buyers as our ‘shop door’ never closes.
- Unlike other agents we offer late evening and weekend viewings to suit the busylifestyle of our clients especially commuters.

GayeSales and Letting Executive
“I have been using First Step for the past three years to manage my letting property and I’ve been extremely impressed with the service they provide. Not only do they put my concerns first, they also ensure that all aspects of my property are looked at, before, during and after tenancy has ended. They’ve also been extremely helpful in assisting me with last minute requests such as gas safety certificates, EPC reports etc. A really good team who understand each other’s portfolios well, so no need to keep explaining yourself if another team member answers my call or email. Keep up the good work and I look forward to working with you all. Thank you for everything you do!”
