Use Popular Move with confidence. As one of few agents in Pembrokeshire with Client Money Protection Insurance. Popular Move are also members of The Property Ombudsman redress scheme.

The new compulsory system of registering and licensing for agents and landlords in Wales went live November 2015. Landlords and agents have had 12 months in which to comply with the new legislation, brought in under devolved powers. The new regime, branded Rent Smart Wales, will also involve the compulsory registration of landlords.

Landlords must not only register, but if they want to manage a property, become licensed as well. If landlords choose not to become licensed, they must use a licensed agent like Popular Move to manage their properties.

If you currently manage your property your self and you don’t want to be licenced please call Popular Move on 01437 772235 to see how we can help. More info available at Rentsmart.gov.wales 

Our aim is to help you make the maximum return from your let properties – whether you own a portfolio of rental properties or just one.

We offer a competitive and cost effective fee structure with no set up charge. We also offer a rent guarantee option and will forward rental payments to you as soon as cleared funds are received.

As a landlord, you need to protect against three potential problems:

  • Empty Properties: we can help you by finding good tenants as quickly as possible – often from our existing list of potential tenants looking for properties to rent in Pembrokeshire.
  • Problem Tenants: we vet all tenants before they move into your property and take swift action to resolve any issues arising.
  • Property Repairs: we can inspect your property on a regular basis and organise repairs.

Popular Move can deal with these issues for you. More importantly, we take prompt action to stop problems occurring – or react quickly and efficiently when they do.

We have teamed up with Haven Insurance to provide comprehensive landlords insurance cover. Contact our office for details on 01437 772235 or download a leaflet Haven Insurance – Landlord Cover

Applying for a Rental Property

When you express an interest in renting a property, we will supply you with a “Tenant Application Form” which all of our prospective tenants must fill out before being considered for a property.

We also require forms of ID – one photo ID & one proof of address (utility bill).

As agents we charge a small fee of £50 per adult (over 18) on application of a rental property. This fee is non refundable.

Rents

Rents are normally quoted calendar monthly, and payable monthly in advance. The tenant is usually also responsible for Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs. All rents are payable by bank standing order to our company bank account.

Deposit

A security deposit of a minimum of one month’s rental will normally be required. This deposit will be treated in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Protection regulations, and you will be informed of which protection scheme is utilised. The deposit is held to cover damage, breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy agreement. Please note that under no circumstances can the deposit be used by the tenant to cover rent.
