The skill of being a professional property manager goes far beyond simply finding you a tenant.
- Ensure we have full details of your wishes with respect to the letting.
- Advertise your property on the multiple web sites & local press to find a suitable tenant.
- Ensure legally mandated safety checks are carried out.
- Conduct accompanied viewing with prospective tenants.
- On finding a suitable tenant we will carry out employer, previous landlord and identity checks (as appropriate).
If the tenant matches the property and passes our checks, we will:
- Produce an inventory/statement of condition for the property.
- Draw up the tenancy agreement & associated legal paperwork.
- Ensure the property is ready for occupation.
- Move the tenant in.
- Collect the first months rent and the dilapidation deposit.
If we are managing the property, then we will then go on to:
- Collect the rent.
- Pay rents (minus any deductions for fees or repairs etc) to the landlord’s nominated account by direct bank transfer confirmed by of a monthly rent statement.
- Conduct regular inspections of the property.
- Ensuring maintenance problems are dealt with swiftly as per the landlord’s instructions.
- Pay for all repairs up to authorised limits direct from monthly rental income as appropriate.
At the end of the tenancy we will:
- Issue the advance ‘Notice Requiring Possession’ if necessary.
- Advise the tenant of ‘move out’ procedures.
- Inspect the property post the tenants move out.
- Repay the dilapidations deposit to the tenant or deduct necessary charges as agreed with the tenant and landlord.
- Hand over the property to the landlord or seek a new tenant as instructed.
- Inclusive full management fee of just 9% (no VAT) of the gross monthly rent for the first year. We do not charge you to find a tenant & do not charge for the creation of subsequent leases.
- No fees are payable until we find a suitable tenant.
- Fees will then be deducted from the first month’s rent. The ongoing management charge will be deducted from the rent on a monthly basis.
- Landlords of residential accommodation have responsibilities for combating Legionnaires’ Disease. Health and safety legislation requires that landlords carry out risk assessments for the Legionella bacteria which cause Legionnaires’ Disease and thereafter maintain control measures to minimise the risk. Most rented premises will be low risk but it is important that risk assessments are carried out and control measures introduced. Click here for the full fact sheet.
- Some consultants & letting agents misinterpreting landlords responsibilities regarding legionella risks to their tenants. Read about Case 357 here.
