Finding the Right Tenant
As members of the RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) we are governed by its code of practice providing peace of mind for all our clients.
Our rigorous Tenant referencing service through our independent referencing company provides all Landlords with a detailed back ground check on any potential tenants. When suitable tenants have been confirmed and a start date agreed, we will prepare and provide copies of the appropriate Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements and sign on your behalf. As a Landlord, recent changes to Government Legislation means the legal obligations you have towards your tenants have become more onerous than ever. It is vital that you are professionally advised from the start as mistakes can be costly and time consuming.
Our Tenancy Deposit certification system ensures you comply with all aspects of the tenancy deposit scheme to ensure that your tenants money is properly protected.
Regular internal inspections and Landlord feedback throughout the let ensure you are kept fully up to date during the term of the tenancy and we’ll also advise you of any remedial works required during this time. Handling repairs in a timely and professional manner is hugely important to both protect the fabric of the property and to ensure the tenants quiet enjoyment during the tenancy term. We can attend to the vast majority of day to day repairs and maintenance issues but in all cases, will gain your approval in the first instance.
Our dedicated Accounts Department will provide you with monthly statements outlining rents received, expenses incurred etc. and are always on hand to assist where necessary.
At the End of the Tenancy
To ensure potential void periods are kept to a minimum, it is essential that a thorough final inspection is carried out at your property when the tenant eventually vacates. The original prepared inventory will be checked over thoroughly to ensure everything is in order. Final utility readings will be taken and all keys logged back in. Any concerns regarding final condition will be negotiated with the tenants and if necessary, where arbitration is required, we will handle all aspects on your behalf.
We have hundreds of satisfied Landlord and Tenants and would love to talk to you. Please give us a call and we’ll arrange a free no obligation market appraisal.
