Renting Information from TIR Lettings

Renting Process

With all the horror landlord stories, an agent can certainly help to qualify legitimate landlords, ensuring you peace of mind when you choose a property and are paying a bond and rent in advance. TIR Lettings aims to help offer excellence in all areas - reputable landlords, sound properties and trustworthy tenants. This guide will give you an insight into the renting process step by step.

Let's have a chat!

You can visit our office, speak to us or complete the contact form on this website. We will keep you updated of new properties via email, text or phone - whichever you prefer. We will need to know the type of property you are looking for, date to occupy from and how many will be residing in the property with you.

Let us do the hard work!

With a clear understanding of your requirements we will access all properties that match your criteria: the style of the property you are after; whether it is furnished or unfurnished; whether parking space is available; the property location; and the length of the tenancy. Full details of this selection will be sent to you via text or email and you can also search yourself using our daily updated website. Property details can also be printed from this website.

Let's take a look!

We will endeavour to set up viewings of properties you are interested in as quickly as possible. We conduct appointments at times that suit you, between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.

Tenancy agreement!

Once the landlord confirms that they would like to proceed we will draw up the relevant paperwork, forming an agreement between both parties. A deposit may be needed to help secure your verbal agreement until the documents are prepared. We will call you in to sign the contracts when all the administration has been completed.

Let’s be Responsible!

Your rights and responsibilities as a tenant are clearly set out in the tenancy agreement. These will include an undertaking to pay the rent on time and keep the property in an acceptable state. Read the agreement carefully and raise any queries with the agent before signing.

  • As the tenant, it is your responsibility to consider arranging contents insurance for your own possessions in the property. Call Stonehouse ltd for competitive insurance cover for your possessions. https://stonehouseifa.co.uk/service/general-insurance/
  • Unless otherwise stipulated in the tenancy agreement, you will be expected to pay for utility services such as gas, electricity, water rates, telephone and TV license during the course of the tenancy. You may also need to pay council tax (exempt for full-time students who can provide a certificate of exemption from the University).
  • At the end of the tenancy, ensure you have fulfilled all the obligations as stated in the tenancy agreement, otherwise legal proceedings maybe enforced. At this time the agent will conduct an inventory check and inspect the property. Provided there are no missing items or any damage no legal action will be taken.
  • If the property is a managed let, the agent will act as a mediator between the tenant and the landlord; otherwise you will be required to deal with the landlord direct.

what our landlords say.

"The TIR Lettings company has been our property agent for over ten years. In that time they have not only been excellent at introducing new tenants to our properties but have been extremely efficient at dealing with and solving any issues relating to our properties and also helping the tenants. All the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. No problems that may arise are left unresolved. For me, having the TIR Lettings take care of all our needs is like being looked after by a caring and supportive family. Thank you to all of the lovely staff. You have provided us with consistent support and advice over the past ten years and we are very grateful. "   - Llyndall Trotman

"TIR Lettings are one of the very top lettings agents that LIV work with nationally. They are responsive, collaborative and straightforward to deal with. We find their staff to be honest and hardworking with a real desire to take great care over their Landlords and Tenants. LIV have gone so far as to recommend TIR Lettings to their own clients who have found themselves in difficulties with other agents and as such can give no higher praise than that."   - Dave Gray, Regional Manager - LIV Group Ltd

"TIRLettings has been managing my landlords portfolio of buy-to-let flats over the last 5 years. Although there were some problems earlier on, I have gone on to establish a good working relationship with TIR Lettings. Their communications with me are prompt and professional and always courteous and personable. They have all issues related to my properties at their finger tips such as periodic inspections, routine and additional maintenance issues and new tenancies etc I am dependent on the efficiency of TIRLettings to optimise the return on my investment, so building trust through a reliable personal working relationship with them is bottom line for me. I feel that this relationship has become much more established over the last couple of years for which I am very grateful."   - Lynne Patrick

"I live in Cornwall so owning and letting a property in Sheffield could easily be a logistical challenge but TIR Lettings reduced the hassle massively for me. In 2019 I decided my flat needed some attention as the boiler had broken and redecoration was essential in order to find a another good tenant. I had a very busy full time job at the time so TIR took on the organisation of the work and coordination of the contractors. It was a weight off my mind and once the work had been completed TIR arranged for photographs to be taken and advertised the flat for rent at an increased monthly rent. Within days a new tenant was secured and all has run smoothly ever since as their attention to detail and customer service is excellent. They return calls and emails swiftly which makes the whole letting process easier for any landlord."   - Karen De Salis

"Select Group have been working with TIR Lettings at Velocity Tower since 2016.
When we appointed TIR, we placed considerable trust in their ability to meet demanding financial targets whilst delivering exceptional letting services to tenants.
Their performance over the past five years demonstrates a company that has a detailed understanding of the letting business, and one that has constantly risen to the challenges and targets presented to them.
Talk to them, Iím glad we did."

We are proud to support the work of the charity and all it does for cancer patients and families in this region. Since our initial support from 2017 we have already raised in excess of £28,000 and we remain committed to fundraising and spreading awareness of everything the charity does.

 

One in two of us will face cancer at some point in our lives. Directly or indirectly, we can all expect cancer to change everything for us one day, and when it does, Weston Park Cancer Charity is here to change everything too.
Its services, advice, therapies and support services are for patients and the family and friends close to them, helping everyone affected to live with and beyond cancer. The funds they raise also support vital, pioneering research and clinical trials led by the exceptional medical experts at Weston Park Cancer Centre. The charity aims to care in every sense for patients and family members, with them at every step, for free. Visit www.westonpark.org.uk for more information or call 0114 553 3330
