What our customers say

We decided to let as an alternative to selling as it seemed a more viable route in the current climate. I felt it appropriate to support a local firm rather than the bigger corporations where the service was more impersonal. Slater and Brandley seemed very proactive.

Garry Slater was our contact and he was helpful, accessible and knowledgeable. Our property was let immediately – viewings were arranged for the week it was available and good candidates were found on the first day of accompanied viewings. I would recommend their service.

Alison Oldfield

I was moving abroad for work and in a very short time frame needed to arrange for my existing property in Nottingham to be rented. Will at Slater and Brandley was extremely helpful, giving much needed advice. His knowledge and experience were invaluable. The background checks carried out for potential tenants were incredibly thorough and the information along with their guidance stopped me taking on what could have been ‘problem’ tenants.

Levels of communication are excellent, you always know exactly what is happening. Any issues are always communicated clearly together with your potential options and their recommendations. I would highly recommend them.

Linda Hill

I own a portfolio of properties in various areas of Nottinghamshire and I needed an agent who truly understood the demands of running a buy to let portfolio. I heard about Slater and Brandley through recommendations and the level of service, knowledge and care I have experienced has been exemplary.

Fundamentally, everything they say they can and will do, they do. They afford certainty and instill confidence and In many years of experiencing letting agents I can confidently assert that I’m sure there are no better.

Jason Davis

My long term Tenant gave notice unexpectedly and I required quality, new Tenant fast. I have been a Landlord for nearly 4 years and I chose to use an Agent this time around and discovered Slater and Brandley.

I spoke with Will Brandley initially but also with Garry Slater throughout. I found both to be confident, assured and highly knowledgeable about their area of business. The property was photographed and advertised on Rightmove within days and S&B quickly had multiple viewings arranged. S&B managed the enquiries, viewings and vetting and found an excellent Tenant for the property. I found the service to be first class, with excellent communication and realistic, honest reports on progress throughout.

Further to this the manner and efficiency in which S&B conduct their business is admirable. I will certainly use S&B in the future and would recommend them to anyone requiring the services S&B offer. Thanks once again to Will & Garry…Best wishes for the future.

I have now been a landlord for a number of years and have used numerous letting agencies in my time but non compare to Slater and Brandley. My experience is that they are very professional, honest and hard working. They will go that extra mile that other letting agencies would not.

Marcellus Baz

Exceptional letting agents. This is the fourth letting agent we have used in fifteen years of being landlords and the quality of service and organisation is in a different class to previous experiences. On any occasion where there has been a problem with one of our properties we are contacted with both information and possible solutions. The team are friendly and efficient, provide excellent levels of service and are a pleasure to work with.

They were highly recommended to us and we would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone else.

Slater and Brandley have been entirely professional in their management of our rental property. They act quickly and efficiently which has removed the huge burden of property management from our own shoulders. We now live overseas and their communication with us remains excellent. I highly recommend them.

Kirsty Broder

I have nothing but praise for this company. I have been dealing with them for around a year and have had nothing but good experiences. Even my most trivial queries have been dealt with willingly and they have kept me informed about matters as they proceed. I am now entrusting a 6 bedroom HMO to their care as I seek to relieve myself of the day to day stresses of being a landlord due to ill-health. I plan to discuss further properties with them in the near future with a view to them managing my other HMOs and flats.
S & B are a 5* company and my reduced-stress future will lie in their hands.
Thanks to Garry, Will, Nick and the rest of the team for your ongoing support.

I have found the services provided by Slater & Brandley, over the past 5 years, to be extremely professional, conscientious and caring. I have been able to rely on them with confidence and they have made my life as a landlord easier. Having used other agents in other areas, I can vouch for the superior quality of their services and can recommend them, without reservation.

Sue Bearman

Really pleased with the service I have received from all at Slater and Brandley.
From the first meeting at the house I was renting out with Will who was very professional and knowledgeable I felt confident to leave everything with them. A tenant was found very quickly and everything went like clockwork. Their service is first class I would not use anyone else.

We have used Slater & Brandley a number of times to assist with our tenant find. A truely first class, efficient service from showings through to the electronic Tenancy Agreement. The team removes all hassle from the process and has resulted in us taking on great tenants time after time. I cannot recommend the team highly enough!

Claire Upton

I have used Slater and Brandley for a couple of years now. They are one of the best letting agencies I have used, and I have used most in Nottingham. They are attentive, considerate and caring and you are always treated with respect. They are thorough in the job they do, keeping high standard of care and consideration for both tenants and landlords.
I am a tenant and 100% happy with the standard of work Slater and Brandy do. If I wanted to let a home out as a landlord I would most certainly use them, as I know first hand how meticulous, and comprehensive their standard are.

Rowena Allen

Having used a number of different letting agents over the years to manage my properties, finding Slater & Brandley has proved to be an eye opener. Totally professional in all their dealings and handling emergencies, even at 8.00pm on a Saturday evening when a plumber was needed. With regards to rents that are paid by the tenants, payment into my bank account is instant, and I mean instant. Over the years I have found that some of the letting agents we have used like to withhold the tenants rent for up to a month after it’s been paid to them, before they consider paying me!
So if you are looking for a company to look after your properties, private or commercial, I would recommend Slater & Brandley every time for a very friendly, professional service which allows me to get on with my life, in the sound knowledge that my investments are in safe hands for all eventualities that may arise.

Geoff Cookson

We met in October 2011 when we had one of our properties came available at short notice which was a large detached family home. We gave it to several other local agents who were unsuccessful in letting it, hence we gave you the opportunity and after a short time true to your word you were successful in finding a client for us! Slater and Brandley were professional in every way both with your oral and written details and also flexible with the service you provided.

For me, Slater & Brandley are definitely one of the top five agents South of the river and I would have no hesitation in recommending you and intend to use you again in the future!

Neil Taak

After refurbishing our house in Nottingham I decided to try and find a tenant myself. I live 45 minutes away and had no success so appreciated the help and advice offered by Will at Slater and Brandley. His personal service was professional and attention to detail outstanding….. just what I needed and so I felt confident to leave it in your hands.

The successful outcome is a tenant you found for my property and I would certainly recommend your Company. I will definitely be back in the future.

Valerie Moreland

After having our property up for sale for over 8 months without any interest and seeing several properties pass us by we decided by chance after seeing an ideal property available to rent that we would look into the option of renting our property.

Having spoken with several lettings agents in the past and not being overly happy with their services I was keen to find a company that would take great interest in our circumstances and what we were trying to achieve rather than just renting the property itself.

After spending just one meeting discussing our circumstances with Gary Slater he reassured us and gave us the necessary confidence to place our family home of 8 years up for rent. It was his personal interest and professionalism that convinced us Gary and his company Slater & Brandley were the right people to manage our property and we duly agreed to their full management service.

Within days of us agreeing to use their services a suitable tenant had been found and they are now enjoying their new home. I would recommend Slater and Brandley’s services to anybody looking to use a letting agent as they are efficient, professional but most importantly for us cared about our situation and were really keen to help us achieve our goal.

Mr & Mrs Carr

We’ve been with Slater & Brandley for over a year, we are new to being landlords and after doing extensive research we felt they would be the best fit. We chose right! They made the process of finding tenants so easy, we’ve had a few issues at the house and they’ve dealt with them all with ease. We live in London so were really concerned about leaving our old house in the hands of someone else. Honestly can say that we’ve had no problems at all with Slater & Brandley and are so happy with service and updates they give us. Would definitely recommend.

Been with this company for around a year now as a landlord and after having worked with some atrocious letting agents in the past I’ve been very pleased with the service offered here. Everyone involved seems to take pride in their work which really shows and has meant a good year of rental income with no void periods. Would recommend highly to others.

I have used Slater and Brandley for the last three years. Very professional and proactive letting agency. As a landlord, they have found me excellent tenants, and kept in the loop in every step of the letting process, and also in the management of my properties, they keep me updated on maintenance issues and any other issue I need to be aware of. Everyone in the team, from Garry and Will to Joanna, Vanessa, Anne and Nick, everyone is really helpful, and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending their services to anyone. A pleasure to deal with.

I recently refurbished a large West Bridgford property for mutlti-let occupancy which was subsequently let through Slater & Brandley. I received great advice throughout the refurbishment and all six rooms were let within two weeks of being advertised. Great service and advice. I would definitely recommend Slater & Brandley.

Rob West

Absolutely brilliant agents, they have managed 3 properties for us for 3 years and haven’t put a foot wrong. Will knows the market and the business very well and has given us sound advice as to what to charge and what to do to the properties. Our properties have been let immediately and they have found great tenants. Nick has managed the day to day stuff for us and likewise has been great. Always responds quickly to tenant problems and keeps us informed about what is going on – and our tenants are really happy with them too. Would highly recommend and am really shocked at some of the negative reviews…they are so far above and beyond previous agents we have used.

Liesl Popplewell

So far we have had the pleasure of dealing with Garry, Nick, Will & Vanessa. We have found everyone to be extremely friendly, professional and helpful. We have other properties currently managed by various agents however this is our first time using Slater & Brandley. The phone is always answered, calls are returned and emails are responded to in a very timely manner. This is something that we have found not to be a universal quality with all letting and estate agents, much to our frustration. We will definitely be enlisting the services of Slater & Brandley for more of our properties going forward.

Garry was our first point of contact and I must say that his passion for anything property related shines through. He really did go above and beyond to get us started with our first HMO, meeting us out of hours at his other projects to give us valuable insight into this sector. More importantly the fantastic service that he offers has not ceased now that he has managed to gain our custom and Garry is still very much on hand to assist.

Nick deals with the ongoing property management for us and he is always quick to answer any queries that we have or make any necessary arrangements in relation to the smooth management of the property. I am the first to admit that I like things to be done properly and with this being the first property that Slater & Brandley has managed for us I send frequent emails to check on the service that we are receiving. I must drive him mad but he doesn’t show it, Nick is very patient and every single email receives an informative reply.

Most importantly we have found that the team at Slater & Brandley don’t rest on their laurels, they are very receptive to feedback, are constantly improving their service and striving to be the very best!

Thank you to all at Slater & Brandley!

Frequently Asked Questions by Landlords

We know that success in a good tenancy lies in finding the very best quality tenant. As such we put all applicants through a rigorous application process. This ensures that all previous history is brought to light and that we have a strong knowledge on the applicant’s past. Once we have verified an applicant we pass on all details to you in order that you have the final say on whether an applicant is accepted or not.

Yes it is a legal requirement to have an Energy Performance Certificate in place when letting a property. If you do not already have an EPC we can help arrange this on your behalf. Call today to find out more.

As a customer of Slater & Brandley you will have access to our very own time-served, in-house maintenance team with their Slater & Brandley van and tool boxes. As a result, we are able to deal with any works from the smallest plumbing repair right through to a full house refurbsihemnt. What’s more you will be assigned a personal Property Manager. It is your Property Manager’s responsibility to keep a close eye on all reports of maintenance and repairs. Your Property Manager will ensure that these are acted on swiftly and under the best terms using only qualified and approved contractors. If you have your own contractors and wish to use these we are happy to agree this also.

This will depend on the type of property being let. For most properties we suggest a deposit that is equal to one month’s rent. However, you are free to specify the level of deposit required up to reasonable limits.

For all Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements it is a legal requirement to register a tenant deposit. We work with a Government approved tenancy deposit scheme. The scheme operates as an Insurance-Backed plan with the deposit monies held in a client account.

As a landlord is it important to always have sufficient insurance in place. You want to protect what is possibly your biggest ever investment. This means buildings insurance is a must. At the same time we also recommend having a contents insurance policy in place regardless of whether you are letting your property furnished or not. A good quality contents policy will provide a level of liability cover in the event of an accident occurring in the property for which the tenant can make a claim against you.

This will depend to a great extent on the type of property you are letting. For all professional lets it is usual practice for the tenant to pay all utility bills and Council Tax. If you are considering letting a property on the basis of a house share then you will more than likely charge a rental cost that includes the cost of all utility bills with the landlord settling all bills. However, there is nothing stopping you from charging a lower rental cost on a house share and asking tenants to settle bills direct with suppliers.

This will depend to a great extent on the type of property you are letting. For all professional lets we recommend that you keep any furniture to a minimum as tenants are likely to either have their own or wish to buy new. If you do provide furniture you will need to ensure that all soft furnishings comply with fire safety regulations.

If you are considering letting on a house share basis your tenants are more than likely going to expect a basic level of furniture including a bed and mattress, wardrobe, drawers and a desk and chair.

An inventory is a vital document that sets out both the condition of the property and it’s contents. It is a record that is referred to during periodic inspections of the property to cross reference items and for the final check out on the day your tenant moves out. All of our inventories are typewritten and also carry photographs clearly illustrating the condition at the time of check in. Any discrepancy that is discovered later on can easily be verified with the ability to withhold monies from the initial deposit save for fair wear and tear.

There is no legal requirement to provide white goods such as washing machines, dishwashers and tumble dryers. Should you wish to provide any white goods the legal obligation falls on the part of the landlord to maintain or replace these unless it is written specifically into the tenancy agreement otherwise.

It is a legal requirement to have a Gas Safety certificate in place with all gas appliances needing to be checked on an annual basis. Importantly checks must be carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer in order to comply with Government legislation. At present there is no legal requirement to have an Electrical Safety certificate in place however, it is considered good practice to ensure that all electrical appliances are inspected.

Rents are always determined by the local market. We are very adept at arriving at what we feel is a fair rental valuation for any given property. Rents are driven to a large extent by location, size of property including bedroom numbers and proximity to local amenities such as schools and leisure facilities. To arrange a FREE rental valuation please call our office on 0115 981 9651.

All rental income is treated as taxable income. However, please remember that you are allowed to make a number of deductions from rental income including maintenance and repairs, advertising costs, accounting and letting agent fees.
