If you any questions on our fees, please ask a member of staff.
We will ask for your address history for the last three years and complete a credit check on each individual tenant. We will also require a reference from your existing Landlord or Letting Agent (if you are currently renting) as well as a written reference from your employer. If you are self-employed, we will ask for an accountant’s reference and most recent set of submitted accounts.
The lease you sign will be an Assured Shorthold, which means that you can stay in the property for the period of the lease (provided you meet all the obligations of the lease). If the landlord wishes to end the tenancy you will be given two months’ notice to quit the premises.
We have an obligation to conduct regular inspections of all tenanted accommodation. This is to ensure the property is not in need of repair, that you are looking after the property and discuss any problems you may be experiencing. You will be given notification when an inspection is due to be conducted.
In the event of maintenance being required please telephone us at the earliest possible time in order to minimise any problem that could subsequently arise. Trades persons will be alerted by the Agent and dependent upon the nature and urgency of the task will respond accordingly. Simple precautionary procedures should then be taken by the tenant to prevent any additional problem arising e.g. turn off water at the stopcock if necessary, isolate electric or gas supplies at the mains where required.
You cannot have any pets unless we have permission from the landlord/ourselves in writing. You must consult us prior to obtaining a pet and submit a written request to have a pet stating age/type/breed.
YES! You should consider taking out contents insurance to cover accidental damage to the Landlord’s contents, buildings, fixtures and fittings. The landlord is responsible for insuring the building.
The Deposit normally equates to 5 weeks rent and will be held throughout the tenancy in a government approved deposit scheme and will be returned at the end of the tenancy subject to the property being left in a good condition without any claim for potential damages beyond fair wear and tear.
As a tenant you are responsible for ensuring the rent is paid in full and on time. We have facilities to enable you to establish a standing order which will mean payments are paid directly from your bank to our designated account. You will need to cancel the standing order before leaving the property.
Utility bills, including Council Tax is your responsibility unless stated otherwise in the tenancy agreement. You will need to choose your supplier upon moving in and ensure accounts are closed when you vacate.
Once the Landlord has agreed to accept your application (subject to references and contract) we will ask for a holding deposit equating to one week’s rent. Upon successfully passing the referencing stage of the application, the holding deposit paid will count towards the total balance of rent and deposit owed before the tenancy start date. You risk losing your deposit in the event you provide inaccurate or misleading information on your application, fail a right to rent check, do not all reasonable steps to enter into a tenancy agreement or unilaterally withdraw your application.
Vibrant Estates has been managing my rental property for the last 8 years. Trupti and the team at Vibrant Estate are highly professional and efficient. They provide a very effective end to end service for all property matters. Most importantly, they are transparent and honest. I recommend Vibrant Estates for your property rentals or sale
I hired Teekay to manage my property and found that the service provided very personal and tailored specifically for my needs. For the whole duration that Teekay managed my property I was very relaxed and had full confidence in their expertise and judgment. I would highly recommend them as a business.
I had a pleasure to work with Trupti as a partner agent during 2005/2006 and despite moving on from this industry, when it comes to give my own property for management - Trupti is the first choice as she makes every landlord feel secured ! She is very honest,hardworking, very helpful to all - be it partner agents, landlords or tenants . Professionally, she is simply an all rounder - has charm when she needs it but can be firm and fair in her management role. Unlike many other estate agents, she is extremely flexible for late evening viewings like 8 -9 pm or Sundays as well. I have observed her and her efforts are beyond earning a commission since she is unbiased and is dedicated to spot the right tenants . Her vetting / referencing process is second to none as she ensures attention to details . To the landlords, it serves as a peace of mind when they know Trupti and her team dedicated to avoid any vacant periods for management properties. Most importantly, she is lively , enthusiastic and passionate about her work and her drive never fails to amaze me. I would highly recommend Trupti and her team @ Vibrant Estates whether you are a landlord / Vendor/ buyer or tenant and am sure with her service your opinion about agents will change.
Very professional and caring service. Trupti Genuinely wants what’s best for you. Lovely lady and a Brilliant business.

We have been working with Trupti since sometime now. She has always helped us find right tenants for our newbury park flat. She is brilliant at what she does!! very straightforward and transparent in her dealings. I will surely recommend Vibrant for tenanting your property.
Very good service, they pushed through right to end to ensure I found tenants. It didn't stop there, they still continued to provide great help.
I have had the pleasure of using the services of Vibrant estates a number of times, as a landlord.
I cannot recommend them enough.
They have always been able to find me great tenants, been able to take care of the process from start to finish and make the entire experience seamless and hassle free.
I will continue to use Trupti and the team going forward.
I have also recommended friends and family, who have had a mirrored experience to mine.
