You'll Know The Difference!

Letting your property

At Lucas Estate agents, we offer a straight forward Find a Tenant Service. By cutting out the middle man, Landlords will benefit by saving the management fee that other agents charge.

We are licensed with Rent Smart Wales, and require that all landlords who instruct us to let their property are also licensed with Rent Smart Wales.

We arrange credit checks and referencing on potential tenants, and we also receive the deposit.

If you chose for us to protect the Deposit, then is protected by the Deposit Protection Scheme and kept for the duration of the tenancy.

The Landlord will then manage the tenancy, for the duration of the term.

We only charge Tenants a HOLDING DEPOSITS once an application is submitted.

What is a holding deposit?
A holding deposit is a small deposit which is paid by a tenant to secure a property. It allows the landlord or agent to check the suitability of a tenant. It serves as a guarantee to the landlord that the tenant is committed to taking on the property and a guarantee to the tenant that the landlord will hold the property for them, pending successful completion of their suitability tests. A holding deposit can be any amount up to a maximum of the equivalent of one weeks' rent.
