Bear are aware that new laws are being drafted that will determine what costs can be paid by tenants, if any.
Whatever the future outcome, Bear will not be passing administration costs, previously paid by tenants, on to the Landlord.

There are many statutory regulations involved in letting a property. From Health & Safety, to Gas Safety requirements, to Rental Deposit Security. Bear can assist to ensure a single property investment or a portfolio, is rented out and managed within these strict criteria. Our service is tailor-made to meet your requirements.
We receive many calls daily from prospective tenants. From the very first point of contact, complete details are taken about the applicant to decide if they meet specified criteria. This helps us to match properties to applicants, so that only then, can accompanied viewings of a property take place. After viewings take place, and the applicant wishes to rent the property, thorough financial checks and referencing is carried out. Bear's criteria for tenants' demands that insurance against accidental damage is taken out by a tenant and we ensure this is in place once other checks are positive. Deposits are taken and placed in a safeguarded DPS deposit account. Contracts are signed and a complete inventory of the property is taken and signed by tenant and Bear (see legal considerations)
We believe in encouraging good tenancy behaviour from tenants. If we manage your property, your tenants will be rewarded by Bear for complying with our requirements. Quarterly inspections of the property, for example and ensuring funds are available for their monthly rental standing orders, as well as landlord’s criteria being adhered to, are all part of these requirements. (see our Bear Share Scheme)
Our fees are fixed. We have a choice of two tenant finder fees:-
