STAY ALERT TO STAY SAFE

Latest Information: COVID-19

In these challenging and quickly changing times, please be assured that it is very much ‘BUSINESS  but not quite as usual’ at Peter Large Estate & Letting Agents.

We are continuing to market properties ‘For Sale’ and  ‘To Let’, arrange viewings and take offers and rental applications! We will of course continue to closely follow Government announcements and will act on any instructions they provide.

Whilst this is a worrying and uncertain time, we take the safety and wellbeing of all clients and our own staff very seriously, so we are now asking a few simple questions before organising viewings and market appraisals to check they don’t present any higher risk level than normal.

Whilst viewing levels will inevitably decline, there are already signs that our online visits and enquiries are increasing, as many more people have more time on their hands than usual and are spending it planning for the future.

How The New Wales Tenant Fee Rules Affect You

As a leading North Wales Estate Agent, Peter Large has always believed in offering a fair and transparent service to both tenants and landlords.

A new law came into force on 1 September 2019 which is a major change to the fees tenants in Wales have to pay, so we are providing the following guidance for both tenants and potential landlords.

Guidance for New Tenants

Here is how the new laws affect new tenants who are taking out a new tenancy agreement or signed an agreement after 1 September 2019.

What you don’t have to pay

New tenants after this date no longer have to pay fees for:

  • checking references or credit checks
  • administration
  • drawing up a tenancy
  • renewing a tenancy
  • amending a tenancy term, for example adding in more conditions
  • requesting or amending a tenancy if one joint tenant leaves and is replaced by another
  • viewing a property
  • drawing up an inventory
  • arranging a guarantor
  • inspecting a property at the end of the tenancy.

Charges you do have to pay

New tenants will still need to pay the following charges:

  • rent
  • security deposits (if required)   
  • holding deposits to reserve a property. This is equivalent to one week’s rent and will be offset against your first month.
  • late payment of rent or breach of a tenancy agreement (known as default payments)
  • any council tax, utility bills, communication bills or TV licence (unless these services are provided as part of your tenancy agreement)

Guidance for Existing Tenants

With regard to existing tenancy agreements that were taken out prior to 1 September 2019, any charges due under your existing tenancy agreement will still apply.

Guidance for Landlords

If you are already one of our landlords, we will have been in touch to advise you of any changes to your agreements with us where needed.

If however, you are a landlord with a property to let, unsure of what costs are involved, why not get in touch?

With the new rules now in place, and very strict guidelines for renting out properties in Wales, many landlords have inadvertently fallen foul, with a number of private landlords receiving large fines.  

Our professional service enables us to guide landlords through the complex maze of letting property in Wales.

We generally let properties more quickly, and attract desirable, high quality tenants with a stable income, which enables us to protect your property investment.  We can take care of every aspect of your property rental, leaving you free to get on with running your business.

For more advice on any aspect of letting your property or taking out a rental agreement on one of our properties, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our professional lettings team.

Abergele office awarded ‘Best Estate Agent in Conwy County’

We are delighted to announce that our Abergele branch has won the prestigious Gold British Property Award 2019 for Conwy County.

The British Property Awards are particularly prized by estate agents – the award sees estate agents judged on a town by town basis, and agents must meet a minimum set of criteria over a number of months. 

In the event none of the agents in a town meets the criteria, no award will be made – and the Gold Winner is the highest award for any given area, so this is very welcome news for our hard-working staff.

A spokesman for the British Property Awards explained:

“We take our jobs very seriously.  At The British Property Awards, our mission is to provide a useful award for the consumer on a local level, highlighting excellence within their town, an award that can be trusted and used as part of their decision making process.

“Gold Award Winner for Conwy, Peter Large, performed outstandingly throughout the extensive judging period, which focused on customer service levels over more than 25 separate criteria.” 

Director and Company Secretary, Avril Large, said the award came as a welcome surprise for the chain’s Abergele branch:

“Excellent customer service is something we pride ourselves on across all our estate agency branches, so it is great for our Abergele branch to see their hard work recognised with this Gold award.  

“I really want to thank the team who work so hard, not to win awards, but to serve our customers to the best of their ability.  I am really proud of them.”

We have also been shortlisted for a number of other national awards which will be announced later in the year – this is great news, not just for the Abergele branch but for the whole team in our North Wales estate agency branches.
