We wont Lock you into unreasonable contracts
You wont be locked into anything and if you ever do choose to leave us then of course we’ll be disappointed but we will help you with the transition and certainly not charge you an extortionate exit fee.
One of the primary concerns landlords seem to have is finding tenants that wont ‘trash the place.’
Your tenants will be thoroughly referenced but also chosen carefully.
Poor or unreliable tenants can still pass the referencing process, so we go beyond the standard credit and reference checks to ensure your tenants are lovely people, pay the rent on time and will look after your property.
We wont simply put the first person who applies into the property as we genuinely care about you and your investment.
If you choose our managed service you will received a detailed property inspection report in pdf form every quarter. This will show the condition of your property including pictures, written notes, a score out of 5 for decor and cleanliness in each room and any notes on required maintenance.
This is often the point where tenants report maintenance issues so it’s a great way to ensure your property is looked after.
This is also how we ensure your tenants don’t ‘Trash The Place!’
If you’re managing your own property but don’t feel comfortable then we are still happy to conduct inspections for you for an agreed additional fee.
If you choose our Fully Managed Service then we will send you a statement every month alongside your rent. This will show your rental income, our fees deducted and any maintenance expenses alongside the contractor invoices for complete transparency. These are great for keeping an eye on what’s going on with your property financially.
You will also be provided with an annual statement (upon request) which will help you work out your end of year income vs expenses for your tax return.
Due to our efficient set up of standing order payments and making this a term in tenants contractual agreement we rarely ever have missed payments.
Regardless of the above we still check rent payments every day and if they are not paid then we get straight onto our tenants to ensure prompt payment.
If you choose our managed service then we will arrange for all maintenance issues to be inspected by our reputable and insured contractors and then repaired as soon as possible.
We have a 24 hour emergency number for tenants should there be a problem that requires urgent attention and for day to day maintenance issues we have an online reporting system which means maintenance is dealt with swiftly and efficiently.
We work with a number of overseas landlords.
To leave you largest asset in the hands of someone else takes a lot of trust and we work very hard to build that trust and ensure you and your property are well looked after and you have nothing to worry about even if you are on the other side of the world.
