If you are considering letting your property for the first time or you're an experienced HMO landlord, we're confident we can give you some good advice. From dressing and layout to tenant types and rent assessment, or negotiating the new licensing regulations, we believe we can add some value. We can also provide a quick assessment on the return on set up and conversion costs and make introductions to contractors.
If you prefer to manage your own properties but would appreciate some help finding, screening, selecting and checking in new tenants, why not try us out? If you're away on business or on holiday with the family, we can cover for you so you don't leave rooms empty when you're not around.
Our specialist in-house lettings team carry out our viewings at times to suit tenants. They have years of experience spotting good (and bad) tenants and we don't leave such an important decision to Saturday staff like many agencies!
We ensure all tenancy agreements are up to date so you don't fall foul of revised regulations. It is important the right documents are presented to tenants to comply with current regulations.
We manage the whole process introducing tenants to the specific quirks of the house and their house mates as well as setting ground rules for living in harmony with others.
In addition to using a comprehensive third-party referencing system that checks employer and landlord references, we always meet our tenants face-to-face to find out more about them and to ensure we get the right group dynamic in the house.
We take care of the financial side of taking on a new tenant. We'll take the initial rent and deposit and facilitate the set up of monthly rent payments. We can lodge the deposit for you in your chosen protected deposit scheme. You will receive the payments we have collected due to you within a week of us receiving them.
We will provide a standard photographic tenant inventory at no extra charge ensuring you have an accurate record of the condition of the property at the time of tenant check in.
We'll advertise your property on the most-important websites, as well as put boards up outside. We make sure we respond quickly and promptly to enquiries to make sure the best possible tenants get to view your property. Please also speak to us about our professional quality photography, video walk through and room dressing service for that extra 'wow' on adverts.
Managing room-by-room lets can be hard work and if you prefer us to manage everything for you, our full management package is probably for you. It includes everything in the tenant find service plus..
We handle day-to-day tenant enquiries day and night so you can relax knowing your phone won't keep ringing at unsociable hours and you can get on with enjoying your life.
Our inspections are carried out personally by our in-house team who are trained to spot issues early and provide you with a list of options to keep on top of maintaining your property and reducing your costs over the long term.
We help keep your bills reasonable by using fair usage clauses in our tenancy agreements to ensure tenants use utilities responsibly. We organise annual Gas Safety certificates, EPCs, Electrical Certificates and PAT Tests.
All landlord and tenant funds are protected with Client Money Protection Scheme (CMP) through our membership of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (UKALA).
Our fees are very competitive with a range of options for different client needs and budgets.
We organise regular cleaning of communal areas and gardening services. It's important to set and maintain standards and cleaners can act as an extra set of eyes and ears in your property.
We lodge deposits independently with the Deposit Protection Service custodial scheme (DPS) to ensure tenant money is protected and you are compliant with your legal obligations.
You get the benefit of our trusted contractors (although you are free to use your own) at competitive prices. We manage the whole process on your behalf and try and minimise unnecessary costs through good diagnosis and using the right contractors.
Our guaranteed rental service is the same as our fully managed option above but provides a fixed income where you get paid the same amount each month, no matter how many tenants are in the property. Every month we pay more than £33,000 in rents to our clients in this way. All the services above are included with the added extras below:
We carry all the risk of empty rooms and non-paying tenants.
All utility bills are managed and paid by us. No need to pay or monitor any bills.
A fixed rental payment is paid to you monthly within 5 working days of an agreed date.
As an optional extra, we can even include an allowance for maintenance to help budgeting and smooth out your income.
Often it makes better financial sense to let a property to a family, couple or single person. We manage a number of single-let properties and we've proven that when you can deliver great results and service managing multiple people sharing the same house, you can do exactly same letting to family.
