Lettings FAQ

MOVING HOME…it’s easier than you think.
Especially with OWN HOMES.

Here are some of the questions we get asked about both the lettings and sales process.

I would like to let my property. What is the first stage of action?
Please come and see us in our office, or give us a call, and we will happily talk you through the process and listen to your needs. Own Homes successfully sell and let properties throughout Herts and Beds.
Do you sell and rent properties of all sizes and condition?
Yes, we have a vast range of properties in our portfolio. Please call us for more details.
Do I have to display a ‘For Sale’ or ‘To Let’ board outside my property? What benefit is there to displaying one?
It is not compulsory to have a display board, however, it does generate interest in your property and can result in quicker and more profitable sales.
What influences your valuation of my property? OR When you value my property, what indicators do you use?
We use comparable evidence of other properties in your area to make our valuations.
Will I still have to pay your fees if my property does not sell or rent or if it is removed from the market?
No, we strictly work on a no sale / no rental no fee basis, so unless your sale goes through to completion there will be no fee payable.
Can I list my property with you if it is already on the market with another Estate Agent?
Yes, we are happy to operate on a multi-agency basis.
Can you help first time buyers to arrange a mortgage?
Yes, we offer independent mortgage advice and can look at the whole market for you rather than being tied in to specific lenders.
As first time buyers, are there any schemes to help us on to the property ladder?
There are a number of government schemes to assist first time buyers, so please give us a call or pop in to see us so we can chat through your options.
If my property is on the market with Own Homes, will you conduct my viewings?
Yes, we are happy to accompany your viewings to offer honest and instant feedback. We can happily conduct viewings if you are not at home.
Will I receive feedback from viewings?
Full and honest feedback is given after each viewing as quickly as possible.
