How An Estate Agent Can Help You Find A House To Rent

Uncategorized   |   December 21, 2022   |   Wright & Co Estate Agents


It isn’t uncommon for people to consider renting instead of buying when they’re interested in moving home. There are lots of benefits associated with renting a house, from not needing to apply for a mortgage or save a hefty deposit to having increased flexibility over where you live, and some people will choose to rent for their whole lives. 

If you’re considering renting a house, but you’re not sure where to start, getting in touch with an estate agent should be the first thing you do. An estate agent can guide you through the process of renting a house and their knowledge and experience can be hugely beneficial. To give you an insight into how an estate agent can help you, below we have looked into the many different ways our team at Wright & Co supports tenants looking for new properties to rent. 

Recommend suitable rental properties

When you reach out to an estate agent for some help finding a new house to rent, they can recommend a selection of properties that meet your criteria. An estate agent will ask you what your wants and needs are for a rental property, and then send you suitable houses. You won’t have the hassle of searching the rental market yourself and you will also be told about properties that are new to the market, so you won’t miss out on your perfect new home. 

Accompany you to viewings 

If you would like to view any of the rental properties that an estate agent sends you, they can arrange a convenient time and date for you to look around. They will attend the viewing with you and answer any questions you may have about the property. Local estate agents will also be able to provide you with more information about the surrounding area and what it has to offer, so you can ensure a house is right for you before you decide to make an offer to rent. 

Assist with required paperwork

Renting a house can be a complicated process, especially if you’re a first-time renter and an estate agent will be there to guide you through the process. They can explain everything to you and provide any additional information you require. They can also help you collate any required documents and check your references. With many years of experience, estate agents know the rental process very well and they will be on hand to help every step of the way, ensuring you know the ins and outs, and you don’t feel left in the dark. 

Provide ongoing support throughout the tenancy

Once you have collected your keys and moved into your new home, an estate agent will still be there to help you. There will be various occasions throughout your tenancy when you may have a question or need some assistance, such as needing to report a repair, and the estate agent will be a reliable point of contact. It will be easy to get some advice and guidance whenever required, and you won’t need to worry if you can’t get in touch with your landlord. 

Start the whole process again 

When your tenancy is coming to an end, if you’re interested in moving to a new rental property and you need to start the whole rental process again, an estate agent will be there to help you. If your needs have changed or you would like to relocate to a new area, they can start searching for new properties for you and help to ensure you have somewhere new lined up by the time you need to move out of your current rental property.
