There are one-bedroom flats available at around £425 per calendar month with many of the properties located right in the heart of the town. Letting agents in Long Eaton are a popular choice among tenants and landlords alike.
The handing over of all property management to a letting agency frees up so much responsibility. A landlord will only have to pay a small monthly fee (usually around 10 to 15 per cent) for a service that can provide a great deal.
A letting agent will collect the rent on a monthly basis by arranging a direct debit deal with the tenant. It will then take its own small cut and pass the rest onto you (the landlord). It saves the age-old problem of landlords having to go around to their own properties and hoping the tenant(s) are in and that they have the cash ready there and then.
There is also the problem(s) of white goods, boilers and heating issues going wrong in the home. A tenant will take these issues up directly with the letting agent. If they don’t, then these letting agents should be avoided.
If you are looking to rent, or rent out in Long Eaton, a letting agent is the best option. To choose the right letting agent in Long Eaton you could always check social media, as a first port of call.

Google reviews and Yelp are two other social media platforms where you should look to discover what the general feeling in the community is about that particular letting agent in Long Eaton.
