Step by Step Guide

Step 1 Accurate valuation

As a Landlord your aim should be to let your property at the best possible price in the shortest possible time. Our expert valuers carry out numerous valuations every month, giving us intimate and unparalleled knowledge of property values throughout the Maltese Islands.

This is why we consistently achieve the asking price across all our clients' properties.

Step 2 Selecting the RIGHT agency

When choosing a letting agent consider their opening hours, when they will be available to conduct viewings, their high street presence and what kind of marketing your property will receive. These are critical to obtaining the maximum rental value for your property.

Step 3 Consider property management

Property management can be the key to reaping maximum rental returns on your property. Many tenants insist on renting managed properties and are often prepared to pay a premium for this. It also frees you from the stresses and strains of being a Landlord.

Step 4 Presenting your property

First impressions count, making the presentation of your property critical to a successful let. Consider addressing any DIY jobs you have been meaning to get done, add a fresh coat of paint where necessary and try to declutter to make rooms appear larger. Also make sure any furniture and appliances are in good order.

Step 5 Preparing your property for tenancy

Before you let your property for the first time you must obtain a professional and comprehensive inventory. This will set out the condition and contents of the property. 77 Great Estates can prepare a key items inventory on your behalf at a nominal cost.

Please remember that you are responsible for checking that the tenants have set up accounts with utility companies.

Step 6 Marketing your property

To find your perfect tenant you need to give your property maximum exposure across a wide range of media.

When you instruct 77 Great Estates to let your property you will automatically benefit from our unrivalled, comprehensive marketing package, including: exposure on our website, summary property details in full colour, email and SMS alerts and PR.

Step 7 Accompanied viewings

Our longer opening hours and accommodating lettings agents are the key to maximising the viewing opportunities for your property - in fact many of our viewings are carried out after work and at weekends. Accompanied viewings also mean we can use our expertise to help let your property quickly and for the highest realistic price.

Step 8 Receiving an offer

As soon as an offer is received we will contact you to communicate full details of the offer along with any special conditions to help you decide whether or not to accept.

Step 9 Agree the offer

Once you accept an offer we will do the following, regardless of whether your property is managed:

  • Collect references from the tenants - where required
  • Arrange signing of the Tenancy Agreement
  • Collect moving-in payment (rent + deposit + our fees)

For your added peace of mind, where applicable we will hold the deposit, as an intermediary, resulting in a faster and more efficient deposit release process at the end of the tenancy.

Step 10 Completion

Upon completion of the letting process, keys will be released to the tenant on moving-in day.

For managed properties, we will also provide the tenant with contact details of their dedicated Property Manager.

Congratulations, your property is now let!
