advice on legal compliance and statutory requirements.
Monthly fee (Percentage of the monthly rent) | 12% (10% + VAT)

Deposit registration fee | £60 (£50 + VAT)
All tenant’s deposits must be registered in a government authorised scheme.

Inventory fee | £36 (£30 + VAT)
This is arguably the most important document between the landlord and the tenant. It is important to have a thorough and detailed inventory which serves a number of vital functions, including providing a catalogue of the let property, an unbiased record of its condition and any items included in the tenancy. It forms part of the legally binding contract.
Gas safety certificate | £90 (£75+VAT)
The Gas safety (installation and use) regulations 1998 state that all new let and managed properties must have a gas safety certificate to start the tenancy and must be tested annually
Electrical safety check | varies on size of property
It is not a legal requirement to have the electrics tested, however at Tyler Estates we think it is good practice; as landlords and agents, we have a duty of care to your tenants.
Energy performance certificate and floor plan | £89
The EPC has been a legal requirement since 2008 and lasts for ten years. We need this certificate before we can secure you a tenant.
