Zoopla Premium Listing

Makes your advert really stand out on Zoopla

£79

inc VAT

If you are looking to find a Tenant fast, then we would recommend you consider a Zoopla Premium Listing.

In our experience, a Zoopla Premium Listing should be used if one or more of the following conditions are true:

  1. The property being advertised is in an area with a high density of available properties.  i.e. some locations in London will have 200 available properties within a ¼ mile radius.  With that many properties available, an advert will need all it can get to be noticed.
  2. If the property is of a premium price point – a premium listing will attract more attention
  3. If the property has been on the market for more than 2 weeks we would suggest a boost to the advert by applying a Zoopla Premium Listing and considering the rental price.
  4. If the property has particularly good images, the Premium Listing will make the most of the images by showing 3 in the main search result rather than a single image

FAQs

When should I organise a Gas Safety Certificate & how long does it last?

By law, if you have gas appliances in your property (boiler, hob), you need a valid, in-date Gas Safety Certificate before a tenant can move in. A Gas Safety Certificate needs to be renewed every 12 months.

Are PAT's and EICR's a legal requirement?

Although not a legal requirement in England and Wales as of yet, a landlord has a legal obligation to provide a safe home, therefore we recommend you obtain these certificates every 5 years. If the property is in Scotland however, these documents are legally required.

How do Professional Photographs benefit my property advert?

From our experience we know that the very first thing the prospective tenants will see are the property photos, so if you want to grab tenants’ attention, make sure they stand out! Professional property photos are a good investment for a quick let. They are bright, high resolution, wide angled and generate more enquiries.

What certificates do I need before I advertise?

As well as having consent to let from your mortgage company, an Energy Performance Certificate with a rating of A to E is required on your advert.

Why do I need an Inventory?

If a landlord wishes to make a claim on the tenant's deposit for damage, the DPS will require proof of a signed/dated inventory and schedule of condition. The adjudicator will use the inventories to compare the property condition at the beginning and end of the tenancy - without it, they’re highly likely to reject the landlord’s claim. It also shows you have let it in a safe condition such as smoke alarms are fitted and working.

Is a Boiler Service included in Home Emergency Cover?

Home Emergency Cover which is a benefit of the Rent on Time plan, requires an annual Boiler Service. We can arrange these alongside a Gas Safety Certificate for an additional £45.

Have a property to let?

If your property is available in the next 8 weeks, book a call with a Valuations Manager and we'll have your property advertised within 24 hours.
