Landlord Management Company Services
Owning rental properties can be lucrative, but it also comes with challenges and responsibilities. Our Landlord Management Company provides tailor-made solutions to help landlords, whether new, existing, local, or overseas, manage their properties effectively and efficiently, ensuring peace of mind.
Tenant Finding Services by Our Landlord Management Company
Landlords seeking a reliable tenant-finding service can rely on our dedicated lettings team, especially those who prefer to manage the property during the tenancy. Our tenant-finding-only service is perfectly suited for experienced local landlords leveraging our extensive marketing capabilities to secure quality tenants efficiently.
Tailored Rental Valuation and Expert Advice
Our service initiates with a personalised rental valuation, where we discuss your specific requirements and provide rental advice based on a thorough review of the current market. We assess the property meticulously, offering suggestions on maintenance and improvements ensuring compliance with safety regulations to meet the highest standards and to attract quality tenants.
Strategic Marketing for Optimal Outreach
Our marketing process is comprehensive, beginning with preparing the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) and continuing with the detailed listing of your property on our website and other well-known portals such as Prime Location and Property Live. The strategic circulation of property details to prospective tenants through mailing lists and databases and weekly to educational institutions, corporations, and hospitals, coupled with periodic advertising in local property papers, ensures maximum visibility and interest. Additionally, the supply of a ‘TO LET’ board accentuates property visibility in the local vicinity.
Detailed Viewings and Consistent Feedback
Every viewing is accompanied, providing prospective tenants with a comprehensive understanding of the property and allowing us to gather regular feedback. This consistent communication with prospective tenants ensures that landlords are informed about the interest levels and any concerns raised during the viewings.
Tenant Onboarding and Transition Management
Upon receiving an application from a prospective tenant, our team manages every detail diligently. We conduct negotiations on behalf of the landlord, oversee credit and referencing services, formulate tenancy agreements in compliance with the current Housing Act, and collect the initial rent and deposit. We also set up standing order rental payments directed to the landlord’s account, hand over the keys and relevant property information to the tenant, and ensure all utility providers and the council are notified regarding the new tenancy.
Transparent and Comprehensive Process
This tenant-finding service is designed to be transparent and all-encompassing, enabling landlords to have peace of mind knowing that every aspect of tenant acquisition is handled professionally. The landlords can then focus on managing the property during the tenancy with the assurance that they have quality tenants.
