The sign should be bold, stand out enough to attract
attention and catch the eye of passers by but should
simply include the words ‘To-Let’ and
a contact telephone number and/or a website address,
which would generally be that of your Letting Agent
if you are using one.
do I display my To Let Board?
are actually a few rules to follow when erecting a
To-Let Board. Under most circumstances, planning permission
will not be required. When ordering a To Let Board
from lettingaproperty.com, we ensure that the boards
conform to the required measurements.
the property you intend to rent out is for residential
use then you can either have a single board or two
boards which have been joined together to form a ‘V’
shape. If you opt for a single To-Let Board then this
should be no bigger than 0.5 square metres. A ‘V’
shaped board should not be any larger than 0.6 Square
•If your property is intended to be let out
for commercial or agricultural purposes then the single
To-Let Board should not exceed 2 square metres and
the double ‘V’ shaped board should be
no larger than 2.3 square metres
•You must also ensure, on erecting the To-Let
Board, that it does not protrude more than one metre
from the wall of your property and should not be illuminated
in any way
•The highest part of the advertisement should
be no more than 4.6 metres above ground level
•In Areas of Special Control the highest part
of the advertisement should be no more than 3.6 metres
above ground level
•Once a tenant has been secured and the let
has been agreed then the To-Let Board must be removed
within 14 days
few other guidelines should be adhered to when erecting
a To-Let Board include:
1.Ensuring the To-Let Board is kept clean and tidy.
As well as for obvious environmental reasons this
is also in the interests of the landlord too. There
is little point in having a To-Let board to advertise
your rental property if it is so dirty it can’t
2.Ensuring that the To-Let Board is in a safe condition
and is affixed to the property securely. The last
thing a landlord wants is to be held liable for any
accidents or injuries caused by a badly erected or
dangerous To-Let sign
3.The landlord must also ensure that he has permission
to display the board if it is not being erected on
his own property for some reason. For example, if
the landlord wishes to erect a board on highway land
he must first seek the permission of the Highway Authority
4.The To-Let Board must not obscure or hinder any
other official signs such as aircraft, road, rail
or waterway signs
