Sears & Company

Estate & letting agents


Attention Landlords...

If you are considering letting your home or investment property then talk to us here at Sears & Co where we offer rental services to suit all Landlords from 'tenant find only' to 'fully managed' and everything in between.

If you let your home with us on any of our service levels you can expect to receive...

  • 12 Months free rent guarantee
  • Free third party inventory and check out
  • Free tenancy agreement

When it comes to advertising many agents seem to drop their 'quality' approach where lettings are concerned, here at Sears & Co we will be offering the same exclusive advertising package that we give to our sales properties so all landlords can expect to see 3D floorplans, wide angle photography and rightmove premium listings to help reach the largest market of potential tenants.

Having worked in the residential lettings sector for the past 9 years Richard Sears MNAEA has seen every possible scenario and this experience is invaluable when not only searching for a tenant in the first instance but also for the ongoing management of your property. Richard personally carries out every letting appraisal and would love to discuss marketing your property in more detail.


Landlords - depending on the level of service selected Sears & Co will either take a percentage of the first months rent (70% - 120% including vat for our tenant find only service depending on the size & value of the property) as a one off commission. If you are receiving a managed service we will take a monthly payment of between 6 - 12.5% of the monthly rental including vat dependant on the size and value of the property being let. There is also a one off fee for tenancy set up priced at £80 inc vat.

Tenants - Referencing - £250 for the first applicant, the first guarantor is free of charge. Thereafter the cost is £50 per additional applicant or guarantor (if additional guarantors are required). A further £96.00 per property to cover the cost of tenancy contracts and general administration. At the end of the tenancy tenants will be required to pay a 'check out' fee totalling £120.00. Tenancy renewals after the initial fixed tenancy term will incur a charge of £60.00. All tenant fees are shown inclusive of VAT.

Sears & Co are members of the property Ombudsman for both sales & lettings and have CMP (client money protection insurance) from the NFOPP.
