Agents report agency record agreement signing

265 minutes from referencing to signing tenancy agreement breaks Agency office record

Local leading estate agents Read Maurice of Cheltenham reported today that a new agency record had been achieved. The advantage of using cutting edge technology and being only too willing to help in the hour of need enabled a couple to secure a rental through Read Maurice in record time.

The couple, who were living at vast expense in hotel accommodation, decided to take an executive apartment in Cheltenham through Read Maurice. Although the process of taking references and signing tenancy agreements often takes weeks the applicants asked if there was anything that could be done to reduce this.

Read Maurice who have always been at the forefront of ensuring their agency staff have access to the very latest industry tools said that they could. Once the application fee was paid at 12.36 hrs the agents expedited the couple’s references at no extra cost to the tenant and put their contracts team on notice to prepare the tenancy agreements.



Jason Maurice Director of Read Maurice said “We have for many years reduced our carbon footprint by using Adobe Sign which allows us to dispatch all our legal documents for signing electrically within moments of acceptance. In this case we were able to organise the Landlord and Tenant to sign and exchange these documents within minutes of each other and at 4.01 pm the tenancy agreement was formalised, payments received and both Landlord and Tenant were delighted.”

Jason added “To be fair this shows the dedication and can do attitude of our team from Chloe Redmond negotiating the deal to our Lettings Manager Marc Vivet getting it through the finishing post. In all a great days work which shows if we can help we will”
