Letting Process

The Letting Process

With the right advice, letting a property needn’t be complicated or daunting. Let us help you find the home you've always dreamed of, with minimal fuss and effort on your behalf. Liv International has prepared a simple step-by-step guide to the letting process. If you have any questions, please contact our knowledgeable Lettings team who will be happy to assist you.

Rental Price - Can I Afford It?

Firstly, you need to find out what rental prices are like in the area you are wanting to move to. A quick search on the internet or through our rentals (link) page will usually give you a good idea,. Please note the rental formula for monthly rent is normally calculated by multiplying the weekly rent by the 52 weeks in the year, then dividing this amount by the 12 months in the year – i.e £500 per week (X) 52 weeks (/) 12 months = £2,166.67 monthly rent.

Property Search

Register your property requirements with us so we have a clear idea of what you are looking for in an ideal property. Start viewing properties with one of our experienced letting agents. Ask questions and provide feedback to enable us to tailor our recommendations to your exact needs. Rental properties move quickly in London, so we recommend booking early viewings for the best chance of securing the home you want.


Make an offer on your ideal property that is within your budget, considering whether the rental includes water, gas, electricity or council tax. At this point, we will do a reference check and forward your information to the landlord for your offer to be considered.

Tenancy Agreement

If the landlord accepts your offer, both you and the landlord will sign the relevant paperwork, binding you into a rental contract. You will then pay your first month’s rent and your deposit.

Inventory Check

This is only applicable if you, the landlord or both parties agree to pay for an inventory to be drawn-up. This is an itemised list of the contents of the property and what condition they are in, sometimes accompanied by photographs. You will need to check and sign this list before you check-in, and both you and the landlord will receive a copy. It is important to keep your copy safe so you can refer back to it and account for any damage of breakage when you move out.


With all the paperwork signed, you will be handed the keys to your new home. Congratulations!

If you have any questions or concerns, be sure to raise them with your landlord or our experienced letting agents as soon as possible, to make your move as smooth and satisfying as possible.
