Landlord Guide

Rawlinson and Webber can guide you through the process of being a landlord to ensure you maximise the value of your property investment. With over 100 years’ experience, we are well equipped to help our clients whether it’s sourcing your first investment property or helping you to build your property portfolio.

We are here to guide you through the process to ensure we achieve the highest possible rent, maintain and continuously improve your property whilst ensuring it is managed to a high standard.

1. Accurate Market Appraisal

We will provide you with a free, no obligation valuation and advise you on how much you can expect to receive in rental income. The rental value can depend on various factors, from the general presentation of the property, furniture, parking, outdoor space to the location, transport links and local amenities. We use the best tools available to ensure you are provided with a realistic valuation to guarantee you the best possible rent tailored to your requirements.

2. Landlord Service Options

At Rawlinson and Webber you can choose from one of our three service levels to find the best fit for your requirements. Whether it’s a tenant find service only or a fully hands-off service from start to finish, we can offer a service to meet your requirements.

3. Legal Compliance

In an industry that is constantly subject to regulatory changes, it is always worth having an agent who is actively up to date on legislation. We are a fully licensed and regulated agent. We are able to adapt quickly & implement any necessary procedures. From ensuring there is an EPC, Electrical Installation Condition Report, Gas Safety Certificate, we will ensure your property remains compliant at all times.

4. Presentation Advice

In an industry where more people are renting and competition is becoming stronger, presentation is incredibly important. This ensures you achieve maximum rent & attract high-quality tenants. Whether it’s arranging a fresh lick of paint, a furniture package or professional clean – we can help get your property prepared.

5. Cutting Edge Technology

We have spent a lot of time researching into the best property platforms, technology and proven marketing, as well as investing in the best property management software to successfully manage your property.

6. Marketing

The property will be marketed on the UK’s leading property portals: Rightmove and Zoopla. We will also market the property on the Rawlinson and Webber website and we will also use our social media platforms to target a different type of audience through reels/stories and creative posts.

Our clients also benefit from premium and featured listings on the property portals, meaning your property appears at the top of listings as well as having bigger pictures and text.

7. Viewings

All viewings will be confirmed with you prior to appointment. We will only book viewings in with pre-qualified applications and we will always accompany the viewings unless otherwise preferred. We aim to provide insightful feedback within 24-48 hours.

8. Offers and Tenant Vetting

As soon as an offer has been made, we will contact you to provide full details. All offers are subject to satisfactory references, which are carried out by our partners Homelet.

9. Inventory and Schedule of Condition

If the property is managed by us, prior to moving the tenants in we will carry out a photographic inventory and schedule of condition. This will be sent to you electronically as well as to the tenant to ensure both sides are satisfied. A quality report is essential in order to support evidence if there are any disputes or damage at the end of the tenancy.

10. Tenancy Agreements

The Tenancy Agreement will be sent to you and the tenants electronically to give you all time to read the document in your own time before signing.

11. Rent and Deposit Registration

If the property is managed, prior to move in we will arrange collection of the first month’s rent as well as the deposit amount. Upon receiving, we will register the tenants deposit with the DPS (Deposit Protection Scheme).

12. Arranging Move In

Finally, once all the paperwork and property preparation is done, we can get the keys released to the tenant and the tenant moved in!

Dear Michael, I am an admirer of your organization. Why. Simply because I requested a couple of items to

be fixed. To my surprise, I saw the quick response. Within three days, the important work was completed to our satisfaction. It took about a week for the other work to be completed. I never expected such speedy execution of a request from a tenant. Thank you. S. Abbas

From initial contact right through to completion the staff here were extremely helpful, knowledgeable and patient. If you're buying or selling in or around the Molesey area, these guys are definitely worth looking at. Nothing was too much trouble and ultimately they got a result that I hope was satisfactory to all parties.

Impressed with the service from R & W. As a buyer, they were always prompt, happy to pass on queries to the seller, and proactively stayed on top of resolving any challenges. Would definitely recommend. 



Rawlinson and Webber were fantastic when buying my property. Special thanks to Peter whose proactive chasing of solictors and communication to me throughout the whole process was brilliant. Highly recommend.



From beginning to end Michael has been a really good mediator between us and the landlords, an excellent communicator and overall made us feel very looked after as tenants. Highly recommend Rawlinson & Webber: they know how to take care of people.



The team at Rawlinson Webber were fantastic. Very professional and efficient who simple got the job done quickly and without any hiccups. This is the second time I have used their services and all the team were just as good second time round.
