THROUGH our extensive industry experience we understand that as a potential landlord your key aims are to achieve a successful let, with minimum stress and at a rental price you are happy with.
We also know that you are looking for an agent who will undertake a professional service; with effective communication at each step of the process to guide you through the letting experience.
Letting your property
The right tenant is the essential ingredient for successful letting and we have the experience to find the right tenant for your property. Not only do we have a constant supply of tenants actively seeking a property but we have established contacts with major local companies and relocation agencies who have a regular requirement for good quality accommodation.
We also operate in the latest computer software which automatically matches potential tenants to your property and emails the particulars to them immediately. By specialising in professional letting, we attract good calibre, low risk tenants.
Managing your property
As part of our managed service we will prepare an inventory and schedule of condition. This forms the key element of our checking-in procedure. The list will contain all the items in the property including furniture, carpets, curtains and decoration – it will also have remarks as to their condition. The inventory allows us to monitor whether a tenant is looking after your property and to assess whether any of the security deposit should be retained for repairs or dilapidations.
Our full management service obviously includes formally checking the property during the tenancy for which written reports will be supplied, ensuring your peace of mind. The checks also help us highlight whether any maintenance work is required to keep your property in good order. We will deal with calls from your tenant and organise repairs as necessary, subject to your instructions.
We will negotiate tenancy renewals or extensions with your tenant and actively market the property for re-letting once your tenant serves notice. When a tenant is set to leave your property a rigorous check out procedure is followed. The full inventory and schedule of condition are checked to assess whether the tenant has maintained your property in a satisfactory condition. If it is found that there are items that are not up to standard then these areas will be costed and deducted from the tenant’s security deposit - subject to statutory deposit regulations. We will collect the rent from your tenant and a simple regular monthly statement will be sent to you giving details of all transactions undertaken in connection with your property.
We are always looking for new ways to make sure our customers feel like they are receiving the best possible service.
