What You Need To Know

Review our guide to letting your property!

The advantages of using an estate agent: Letting

This is easy – Estate agents who provide a lettings service are definitely worth talking to. Not only are they up to date with all the recent changes in law (Landlord Registration Schemes, Tenancy Deposits Schemes, Gas Safety etc), as part of their service they will conduct a rental assessment/valuation on your property, handle viewings and negotiations on your behalf. They will seek to achieve the optimum rental income for your property and find the right tenant. Tenant referencing is also vital. Agents will often offer a property management service to take away the stress of those endless odd jobs, leaks and broken washing machines. Not to mention handling any difficulties with the tenancy should that unfortunately arise.

The estate agency sector is continually growing. Within the UK and Ireland, estate agents numbers are on the rise again, both on the high street and now online. With so much choice and competition, how do know which estate agent is right for you?

At Cucompare we have over 40 combined years in the financial and property sector. We continually listen to feedback from clients in relation to property.

Of those surveyed in Northern Ireland:

68% said they contacted 3 or more estate agents before putting their property on the market.

58% said they valued “the estate agent’s reputation” as most important when selecting their desired estate agent.

39% said they valued the “estate agents fee” as most important when selecting their desired estate agent.

87% said they would be “very likely” to use an online comparison site to compare agents fee’s and services, if there was one.

Reputation and fee’s are most important when choosing an estate agent but todays modern consumer demands choice and the ability to compare. At Cucompare we provide a simple, time saving and easy to use platform to compare the very best agents. We compare their fees, services and allow them to demonstrate why they are right for you. Like our little cucou bird logo, we fly the nest and bring all the agents to you!

What is the landlord responsible for?

  • repairs to the structure and exterior of the property, heating and hot water systems, basins, sinks, baths and other sanitaryware
  • the safety of gas and electrical appliances
  • the fire safety of furniture and furnishings provided under the tenancy
  • ensuring that the property is fit for habitation
  • repairing and keeping in working order the room and water heating equipment
  • the common areas in multi-occupancy dwellings
  • obtaining a Certificate of Fitness where the property is built before 1945
  • obtaining an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)

In addition, the landlord is entitled to reasonable access to the property to inspect and carry out repairs.

The landlord is also obliged to provide the tenant with a rent book free of charge and a statement of tenancy terms within 28 days of the tenancy commencing.

Recent change – Any landlord (or part owner in a property which is tenanted) must register with the Landlords Registration Scheme. All Tenancy Deposits must be registered and either insured or placed in an approved Tenancy Deposit Scheme (there are 3 in Northern Ireland). A landlord must also provide Prescribed Information about the tenants deposit within 28 days of receipt.

Landlord qualification

A new qualification has been developed for private landlords who let residential properties.

This Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) Level 2 Certificate aims to promote good standards in privately rented accommodation and provide skills and knowledge to help landlords in their role.

What is the tenant responsible for?

  • paying the rent as agreed
  • bills for gas, electricity, telephone, etc if this was agreed with your landlord
  • keeping the property in a reasonable state of cleanliness and decoration
  • making sure that you, members of your household or your visitors do not harass, cause nuisance or annoyance to the occupiers of any neighbouring or adjoining premises

Both the landlord and tenant have basic repairing responsibilities and the lease or statement of tenancy terms will cover this.

Landlord’s Energy Saving Allowance

If you are a landlord and make energy saving improvements to your property, you could reduce the tax you pay. You can do this by claiming the ‘Landlord’s Energy Saving Allowance’ (LESA). This “perk” expired in April 2016.

Please confirm you want to select this agent, your contact details will be sent to them.

Important Fee Information

Agents charge a Sales Commission Fee (for the successful sale of your property) expressed either as a percentage (%) of the Sale Price Achieved or a Fixed Fee. They also may charge a Marketing Fee, which covers items such as Advertising (both online and local press), Professional Photography, For Sale or To Let signs, Brochure and Plan production.


All Fees may be subject to VAT so for the avoidance of doubt ALL FEES quoted EXCLUDE VAT so they are like for like comparisons.


Example: £140,000 sale price quoted at 1.5% is £2100.00 excluding VAT. With VAT added, the total cost would be £2520.00 (VAT quoted at 20%)

Important Fee Information

Agents charge a Letting (Tenant Finding) Commission or Fee for the successful letting of your property expressed either as a percentage (%) of the Annual Rent Achieved or a Fixed Fee. Sometimes they will charge the first months rent as a fee.


They also may charge a Marketing Fee, which covers items such as Advertising (both online and local press), Professional Photography, To Let signs, Brochure and Plan production.


If the Agent offers Management Services, they will indicate this and provide a more tailored bespoke quote for you depending on what services you require. We ask all agents that offer management services to provide you with a basic quote.


All Fees may be subject to VAT so for the avoidance of doubt ALL FEES quoted EXCLUDE VAT so they are like for like comparisons.


Example: A £500 per month rental property, with an Annual Rental of £6000 will quote as follows:


10% AR (meaning 10% of Annual Rent = £600)

£495 (meaning a Fixed Fee of £495)

FMR (meaning the First Months Rent is taken as the letting fee. This will be 1/12th of the Annual Rent, in this example = £500 )


Don’t forget to add VAT onto your costs at current rate of 20%

Important Info

Please note - An agent cannot increase the fee quoted unless you agree OR the approximate value of your property is outside the range of values you selected when requesting a quote.


When you meet the agent don’t forget to ask lots of questions and remember, cheapest may not be best. You will want an agent you can be confident with, who can demonstrate sales in your area, or if it’s a new company, one that can show you how their strategy is going to bring the result you want. Service is also very important. Don’t forget to check out the Agents Contracts area so you know what type you are signing.
