Welcome To JOSEPHS, Bolton Estate Agents

Letting

Renting

Committed to finding tenants their perfect property.

We know how fast moving the Bolton property market is, especially when it comes to finding brilliant properties to rent. It is our aim to assist every potential tenant in finding their ideal property at an affordable price. Our transparent approach and fair pricing policy have quickly led to us becoming a popular agent for those looking for property in Bolton and the surrounding areas. 

The fees we charge cover the cost of processing your application, carrying out the referencing and credit checks, arranging the contract and confirmation of your identity, although we do try to keep all fees as competitive as possible. 

Our application fees are:

  • £100 for a single application
  • £200 for a double application
  • £50 for a guarantor application fee

If your application is approved you will be required to pay a deposit for the property, which will cover the cost of any damage to the property. We do not hold the deposit in our account, it is protected in a government-authorised scheme to be returned to you at the end of your tenancy following a successful inspection. Occasionally our landlords will accept pets, but this is often at the request of an increased deposit amount and agreement of a pet disclaimer. 

The majority of our tenants want to move quickly, so as soon as your application is received we will begin our reference checks and send your application across to the landlord for their approval. If there are any issues with your application, it may still be possible to let the property by providing a guarantor which agrees to pay the rent on your behalf should any payments fall into arrears. 

We are always here to help with any queries during the search of your property and throughout your tenancy. We will always go the extra mile to provide our tenants with a reliable agency service from the free text message viewing reminders to our Keysafe service to protect you when keys are lost.  

If you are looking for a new home we will make it our mission to find you the perfect property. To start your search and find out more about the properties we have available, please contact our dedicated lettings team. 

Landlords

Working hard to protect your investment.

As a professional letting agency we know how important it is for our landlords to know their property is in safe hands. We offer a variety of service levels, which are designed to match your property management style, so that you benefit from a service tailored to meet your specific needs. 

Professional letting advice

We are passionate about supporting the property industry, so our team strive to improve the performance of your rental property. When we visit the rental property for the first time we will carry out a thorough inspection which will help us to provide an accurate rental valuation. We can then offer advice to help you improve the return from the property and ensure it meets all legal and safety regulations. 

A local service

As a local team we are always on hand to answer your queries or deal with emergency property situations. Many of our landlords are not based in the Bolton area, so we know how important it is for them to have an agency they can trust with their valuable property assets.
