We’ll give you the benefit of our experience to decide how much rent to charge, taking
account of the local market, the value of your property and what it offers tenants. Based on
these factors and more we will help you decide where to pitch the rent.
We’ll support you with rent appraisals and renewals as they come round, letting you know what
we think about any changes to the rental market overall as well as the local situation.
We’ll take you through the things you need to do to ensure you are properly set up as a
landlord – such as changing your mortgage and insurance to make sure your property is set up
for non-owner occupation, choosing if you want to let the property furnished or unfurnished,
or whether to allow pets. We’ll also host viewings for your property if you want us to.
We’re here to protect your income – we’ll vet your potential tenants to make sure they can
afford the rent and we’ll collect and hold the deposit and rental payments on your behalf.
If there is ever any chasing which needs to be done we’ll do it so you don’t have to
We’re here to protect your asset – we’ll keep on top of maintenance and upkeep, with regular
visits and reviews of the property to make sure that your properties are always cared for.
We’ll also prepare a thorough inventory as evidence of the property’s condition at the start
of the tenancy.
We’re here to protect you – by advising on the range of compliance issues which you are
legally required to keep on top of. Everything from CO monitors to gas safety checks, energy
performance requirements to providing a copy of the government’s “How To Rent” guide for
your tenants at the start of their tenancy. And if things do get challenging, we are on hand
to manage and resolve disputes for you.
We take the time to get to know our landlords really well, with regular reviews of your
portfolio and your goals. When it comes to scaling up or scaling down, we can help too. With
our local knowledge and area-wide reach we are great at spotting opportunities and sharing
them with you. We’ll know if one of our landlords is looking to grow while another is
thinking about selling some of their properties; we’ll tell you if something is about to
come up for auction which might fit your portfolio; and we’ll connect you with experts when
it comes to financing your investments.
We will always spend time keeping up to date with your plans, as the more we know about your
investment goals the better we can help.
