How long have you been in the lettings industry?

“I’ve been working in the lettings industry since December 2019. It’s been quite the journey, but I’ve genuinely enjoyed every step of it. From handling landlord enquiries to ensuring tenant satisfaction, it’s all part of the job. I prioritise building strong relationships with clients, emphasising clear communication and attention to detail. My goal is to consistently provide top-notch service and establish myself as a reliable expert in lettings.”

What does a Head of Administration do? 

“My role is to support the team when it is needed. I oversee the Student & Professional Admin team supporting them on the ground, progressing tenancies and assisting with any difficult questions or situations. As a team, we are responsible for progressing all of the tenancies once lets have been agreed, ensuring that referencing is completed, tenancies are compliant and tenants are able to move into their properties on their start dates. These checks are essential to make sure we are moving in good quality tenants to your property. Alongside this, we manage tenant swaps, renewals, managed takeovers and deposit returns – we like to make it as easy as possible for our landlords.”

What’s your favourite thing about working for The Letting Game?

“One thing I really appreciate about TLG is the incredible support system from both the company and my fellow team members. It’s not just about getting the job done; it’s about working together as a team. Everyone’s always willing to lend a hand, plus, we have a lot of fun while we’re at it!”

New licensing scheme approved

On the 6th of February Bristol City Council approved the new Bristol licensing schemes with them coming into effect from the 6th August 2024. As a reminder, all HMOs Bristol-wide will require an additional licence. And it’s not just HMOs, those that fall within a selective licensing area require a license even with just one tenant.

Additional Licencing

New Bristol licensing required for HMOs (Privately rented flats or houses that have 3 or 4 tenants living in 2 or more households.)

All Bristol wards will require the additional license, previously it was restricted to Ashley, Bishopston, Ashley Down, Central, Clifton, Clifton Down, Cotham, Easton, Horfield, Hotwells, Harbourside, Lawrence Hill, Redland, Southville and Windmill Hill. 

Selective Licencing

A license will be required for all private rental properties with 1 or more tenants for properties with Bishopston, Ashley Down, Cotham and Easton added to Bedminster and Brislington West which already have selective licensing requirements. 

Licensing is something we can help our landlords with. We have a dedicated HMO & Compliance expert that our landlords can reach out to for advice, and if you are managed, they’ll look after the whole process for you. There is also plenty of information on licensing on the Bristol.gov.uk website.
