We take the time to understand what both the landlord and tenant wants and adapt our services to provide it. Our team is totally focused on providing customer service to both landlords and tenants and our 'hands on' approach ensures all the vital requirements are fulfilled professionally.

Each tenant will be fully referenced and we will of course collect a security deposit. Our lettings service is not restricted to Burnley and surrounding areas. We have lettings managers that cover most of the North West. Areas such as Manchester, Rochdale, Preston, Nelson, Blackburn and Rawtenstall.

Helpful Hints for Owners and Landlords in brief

Upon deciding to rent your property

  • Apply for mortgage lenders consent.
  • Notify your insurance companies.
  • Obtain gas and EPC certificates.
  • Decide what furniture and/or fittings you intend to leave in the property.  It is not advisable to leave bedding, televisions, videos and personal items.
  • Ensure furnishings to be left in the property comply with fire regulations.
  • Carry out any necessary repairs and remove anything potentially dangerous.
  • Make sure the property is in a clean and tidy condition, particularly the kitchen, bathroom, carpets and curtains – as YOU would hope to find it if moving in yourself!  A tenant can tell if the property is well cared for and is more likely to look after it during the tenancy if it is clean at the start.
  • Overseas landlords apply for tax exemption certificates – please ask Imana's letting department for more details.

Immediately you are notified that an application for tenancy has been received, please:

  • Remove all personal items from the property.
  • Remove all unwanted and non-compliant furniture.
  • Ensure that the property is clean and the garden is tidy.
  • Arrange re-direction of your mail via the Post Office.
  • Landlord to inform all utility companies of the change of occupancy along with British Telecom or other supplier that you will not be requiring further use of the telephone line from the commencement of the tenancy.  Whilst Imana try to ensure that utility companies are furnished with the correct readings, Imana cannot be held responsible for the utility companies failure to recognise the information provided.
  • Let your local Imana branch have two separate sets of access keys/one set on a Let Only.
  • Ensure that the central heating boiler pilot light is lit.
  • Should you require legal protection, buildings, contents insurance cover, inform Imana lettings department.

NB  INSTRUCTION MANUALS or LEAFLETS, in ENGLISH, must be left at your property for all APPLIANCES, THE CENTRAL HEATING BOILER AND SYSTEMS before the Schedule of Condition & Inventory can be undertaken.  By LAW, copies of these must be given to each Tenant at the commencement of the Tenancy.  ALTERNATIVELY, CLEAR HAND WRITTEN OR TYPED INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE REQUIRED.  (Failure to provide these will result in unnecessary delays).

Gas and Electrical Safety

The General Products (Safety) Regulations 1994 require that all goods must satisfy general safety provisions.  The law requires that all electrical appliances are safe and strongly recommends that they are tested.

The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 and The Plugs & Sockets etc (Safety) Regulations 1994 state that supplying unsafe electrical goods is an offence.  When an unsafe appliance is found in rented accommodation, Trading Standards check that the landlord or agent has taken all reasonable precautions to avoid supplying an unsafe item.  In the event of an incident in a property involving electricity the landlord must be able to demonstrate that his supply and appliances are safe, he can only do this if it is tested professionally.  Duty of care demands that this is done on a regular basis, particularly at the point at which the property first becomes available to let.

The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1994 state that all let and managed property MUST be annually tested for safety.  Failure to comply with these regulations can result in a substantial fine or even, in the worst cases, imprisonment.  Only CORGI registered businesses using ACOP’s qualified engineers can carry out work on gas appliances and piping.  All landlords have a DUTY OF CARE to ensure their tenant’s safety.  To this end battery operated smoke alarms are advisable.  Once a landlord has supplied an alarm the tenant becomes responsible for the battery.  Imana uses only fully qualified contractors to carry out both gas and electrical safety tests.  These firms not only carry the right qualifications but have Quality Assured standards and Professional Indemnity Insurance.  Our Contractor’s Safety Inspectors are all qualified to the latest industry-recognised gas and electrical standards.  As legislation increases and qualifications evolve, these engineers keep pace because training is on-going.  Safety Inspectors regularly attend manufacturer courses to enhance their knowledge of – for example – specific boilers, old and new.
