Seven Stages to Letting: A Guide for Landlords

The expert letting agents at Hunters really understand the lettings market and know that whether you're a first time landlord, or have rented out properties before, getting that property marketed and let, whilst ensuring everything is legally compliant, can be a minefield.

With this in mind, we put together our Seven Stages to Letting, a series of downloads for landlords, arming you with all of the information you need to let a property, from getting that first valuation and choosing an agent, all the way to your new tenant moving in.
