To rent a property we will ask you for:
As the tenant, you are responsible for setting up accounts directly with the utility companies when you move into your property. At the end of your tenancy, you are also required to relay this information to your suppliers, making sure to provide meter readings at the beginning and end of the tenancy. If your property is managed by Lextons then we will take care of this for you, free of charge.
We will ask you to set up a monthly standing order with your bank.
Any problems with rental payments, that may result in late payment, should be conveyed to Lextons Property Management. We will contact you the day after the rent is due and arrears letters will be issued if rent remains outstanding beyond 3 days after it was due. A default fee of interest on late rent is payable at 3% above Bank of England base rate which is applicable if rent is more than 14 days overdue.
You will be required to serve notice in accordance with your particular lease agreement by recorded delivery to Lextons or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please take care to add a reference to the agreement.

Please, contact your bank directly to cancel your standing order after the last payment has been made.
Keys should be taken directly to the Lextons office, except when specific instructions have been given by your landlord. Please, make sure all sets are returned and you have obtained a receipt, either on or before the last day of your tenancy.
Please do take note that you will be liable for rent on a daily basis until the keys are returned.
Any costs are typically associated with the condition of the property at the end of the tenancy. Any variations in the condition of the property between the check in and check out reports may result in your landlord requesting deductions from your deposit.
Your deposit will be protected by the My Deposits Scheme.
In accordance with legislation introduced in April 2007 all deposits being paid by a tenant for an Assured Shorthold Tenancy must be registered with a recognised deposit protection scheme within 30 days. Lextons will register the deposit on your behalf, if instructed to do so by your landlord.
Once we have conducted the check-out procedure, the property has been sufficiently cleaned and Lextons have received instructions from the landlord, the money will be returned to your account, minus any agreed deductions.
Usually this will take 10 working days, but normally no more than 28 days.
Please contact Lextons directly if you have any further questions.
If you would like to renew your tenancy, please inform us two months prior to the end of your contract. This is to allow sufficient time to carry out all relevant administration. Contact email@example.com for more information.

"Peter and his team recently sold our flat in Hove for us, and I honestly couldn't recommend them enough. We had previously had our property on with a different agent but had very little interest. We had started to become disheartened and even considered lowering our asking price when we reached out to Lextons. They were so accommodating, coming over to our property and giving us advice around our options." - Ms R.
" There really are some good people in the world, it turns out there’s quite a few of them at Lextons. Peter and James have been nothing short of outstanding during my sale and purchase, going above and beyond to help. From out of hours viewings to impartial and personal advice, I am so utterly impressed with my experience and can’t quite believe the level of service they provide over and above any other estate agent I’ve dealt with. " - Mr W.
"All the way from the front of desk and throughout the whole company, we have received what I can only describe as exceptional and exemplary service. polite, knowledgeable and incredibly thorough, everyone at Lextons have proved to have been fully committed to our sale." - Ms R.
"Their advice was invaluable and the personability shown from Lextons made us feel comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process. A service unlike any other I have experienced in the Brighton and Hove area who I would highly recommend to anyone looking to not only sell their property but also looking for an estate agent they can rely on." - Ms S.
"Lextons are by far the best estate agent that i have dealt with. After making the big mistake of using an online based agent whose name I wont mention I was beginning to loose a bit of hope. I had it on for 4 months with this agent and then I decided to use Lextons and in just over a week I had agreed a sale." - Mr T.
