Here are the details of the services we offer our landlords
SILVER SERVICE-(Tenant Find) This service includes agreeing the market rent, advertising and finding a tenant in accordance with the landlord’s requirements. To conduct viewings and when potential tenant is found, carry out reference checks. This includes previous landlord’s reference, employer’s references and credit checks. The tenant(s) will sign our tenancy agreement and pay us the deposit and the first month’s rent prior to moving in. We will also set up a standing order for the rent to go straight to the landlord. Our fee for this service will be taken out of the first month’s rent and the remainder will be paid into the landlords nominated bank account. (For an additional fee, landlord's can instruct an inventory too).
GOLD SERVICE-(Rent Collection) This service includes everything in the silver service with the addition of collection of the rent and a monthly statement. This upgraded service includes pursuance of non-payment of rent & advice on rent arrears actions. Landlords also qualify for rent guarantee which means if the tenant defaults on paying the rent it would still be paid (this is for an extra fee and is optional but advisable). The rent is paid to us monthly and we take a percentage out every month. (An inventory service can be added for an additional fee).
DIAMOND SERVICE-(Fully Managed) This service includes all in both the Silver and Gold Service and provides full management. We will carry out routine visits on the property every four months. After this is carried out you will receive a report to keep you updated. For any maintenance issues, we have our own local contractors team to look after the property if and when required. If you’re a landlord who wants to be contacted before maintenance begins, then we will inform you straight away before we instruct our contractors. Or some landlords prefer to agree a spending limit and only be contacted if it is over the agreed amount. This can be tailored to suit individual preference. Normally any invoices for work carried out will be deducted from the next month’s rent.
We look forward to working with you and finding the right tenant for you in the quickest time.
