Keyline Property is an independent letting agent with great local knowledge and expertise. Based in Sunderland, we are ideally situated to service the city and many of the surrounding areas including, Seaham, Houghton-le-Spring, Washington, South Shields, Chester-le-Street and the majority of County Durham and Tyne & Wear.

Whether you have an existing portfolio, or maybe you’re a first time landlord, being landlords ourselves, we understand the importance of making your investment work.

We also understand that this means you want to have your property rented out as soon as possible, for the best rent achievable, with the right tenant.

If you would prefer not to be involved in the day to day management of your property then our full management service can take care of every aspect from move in to move out, including:

  • A full programme of marketing
  • The handling of all enquiries from potential tenants and managing viewings
  • Identifying suitable tenants and performing the full tenant checks including a credit check, a Right to Rent Check, current and previous landlords, employer’s confirmation, and bank and passport verification. In addition to this, we will where possible, visit the applicant’s current address.
  • Preparation of the tenancy agreement and all other required documentation.
  • We will prepare a photo based inventory.
  • We will arrange for the collection of rent and register the tenants deposit with the Deposit Protection Service.
  • We will arrange and carry out regular inspections of your property.
  • We will arrange maintenance and repairs including gas safety (CP12) annual checks and electrical inspection condition reports (E.I.C.R) using our trusted and established team of contractors
  • We provide on-going rent collection and liaise with housing benefit regarding payments
  • Clear and concise monthly statements will be emailed to you

Our standard set up fee for this service is £450.00 plus 10% of the on-going rent collected. Alternatively, if you simply require us to find you a suitable tenant for your property, then our tenant find only service is available for £495.00. Please note that all of these figures are exclusive of V.A.T. at the current rate.
