Schedule of fees for landlord
We work on a “no let no fee basis” and on the rare occasion when we are unable to let your property you won’t pay a penny.
Unlike many lettings agents in the area we prepare full particulars of every property that we market. We take pride in measuring every room and take internal photographs to produce full colour details that will give any potential tenant the opportunity of an insight of your property before viewing. These are also available through our website www.masonbryant.co.uk and on www.zoopla.co.uk www.rightmove.co.uk . We pride ourselves in ensuring that your property is advertised as quick as possible from the minute you instruct us. Brief details are also included in our prominent window displays in both our offices and advertised as needed in the local press.
We are aware many landlords have different requirements and with this in mind we have geared our services and fees to reflect this. As an independent company, we can, in most cases, adjust each of our services to meet every landlord’s needs.

If we are managing the property this will include the check-out procedure (attend property and check condition against original schedule of condition/inventory and report findings. If appropriate agree suitable deduction from deposit with both parties; refer to landlord before releasing monies to tenant)
If we are not managing the property it will be the responsibility of the landlord to carry out the final inventory/schedule of condition check with their tenants and report accordingly to us.
If we are to hold the deposit in the DPS, provide a Letting Only service and there is a dispute between tenants and landlord at the end of the tenancy and evidence is required to be submitted to the ADR (Alternative Dispute Service) there will be a one off fee of £60.00 inc vat.
Please note this is optional but we strongly recommend every landlord has a detailed schedule of condition/inventory of their property prepared before each letting. The deposit protection schemes recommend every responsible landlord should have one.
If you do not have an inventory/schedule of condition prepared and you do not wish to test the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors yourself then there will be a charge of £40.00 inc vat to enable us to do this on your behalf. Without written confirmation that these have been tested a tenancy cannot commence.
Every subsequent letting thereafter there will be a one-off administration fee of £60.00 inc vat (£50 plus vat) to update the inventory/schedule, take fresh photos, retest the smoke and co detectors and this includes the check out at the end of the tenancy (if managing the property).
All additional fees and charges are subject to review following written notice and at our discretion.
