Sulets offer two types of service to our property owners, here is an overview of what is included and how they compare.


Sulets Premium Service

You lease your property to Sulets for a fixed term, and we guarantee your rent.

Sulets will then sub-let your property to a group of tenants and take over the day-to-day management of the property. Your property will be returned to you at the end of the lease empty and in a similar condition to the start of the lease, allowing for fair wear and tear. The service is meant to be fully inclusive for property owners and tenants.

There is no set up fee, management fee or VAT. The Landlord agrees to let the property to Sulets, when Sulets has found suitable prospective occupiers. Instead of a set up and management fee the agent is entitled to keep the difference between the rent reserved by the lease and the rent payable by the occupiers.

Valid safety certificates must be provided at the start of the lease and will then be renewed by Sulets once they expire. The certificates covered include the gas safety record, legionella test, the periodic inspection/fixed wiring test and the portable appliance test. The HMO licence is not covered.
