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 also at weekends.
As an independent flexible Estate Agent our costs are kept low giving us a saving we happily pass onto our clients. Not having the overheads of a high street shop 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 7 days a week between the hours of 8am and 8pm.
- All viewings will be carried out by a professional team member familiar with your property,
(not casual weekend staff – who have never seen your property).
- We are flexible and will meet all prospective purchasers at your property to suit your diary and lifestyle.
- We attract more buyers as our shop door never closes.
- Unlike other agents we offer late evening and weekend viewings to suit the busy lifestyle of commuters.

SofiaSales and Letting Executive
“I’ve sold 2 and purchased 2 properties through First Step now and my in laws have rented with them on Fairfield. The team are great – incredibly knowledgeable and approachable. Can’t see us ever selling our house through anyone else and would always recommend them for both rentals and sales. 5 stars on all fronts.”
“I have found Laura and Sofia to be highly efficient and professional in what they do. They managed my property expertly from the minute the purchase completed until a tenant moved in 4 weeks later. During that time they handled every aspect of preparing my property for the rental market including overseeing a complete repaint and the laying of new carpet. Your website says that you are the number 1 lettings team in the local area and from my experience I can only agree with that statement. Thank you for all your help.”
