Our most comprehensive service is called "Fully Manage".
What we do
We'll provide you with a free, no obligation valuation. We'll advertise the property across all the main property websites. We'll arrange viewings, accompany viewings and give feedback. We'll carry out credit checks, employment and previous/current landlord references. We'll arrange to meet your new tenants at the property and we'll sign the tenancy agreement, conduct the video inventory and take meter readings. We can arrange a Landlord's Gas Safety Certificate if you need one. We'll protect the tenant's deposit and pay you the first month's rent, less our fees, the same day your new tenants move in. We'll send you a rental statement either by first class post or by E-mail to your nominated E-mail address.
We'll collect the rent each month thereafter, deduct our professional fees together with any other agreed deductions, and send you the rental income by Faster Payment. We'll provide your tenant with an Emergency number to call outside of office hours and if there are any maintenance issues we'll investigate them and if required arrange free quotations by suitably qualified and experienced contractors. Once these costs have been agreed by you, we will oversee the work and then pay the contractor within seven days, deducting the agreed cost from your next rent payment.
We'll write out to your tenant after they have been in the property three months to conduct a Client Service Visit. If there are any issues, we'll report back to you. We will agree with you further regular visits to the property subject to our recommendation and our agreement. This is usually every three, six or twelve months depending on the property and the tenants.
We'll also write to your tenants a month before the end of their tenancy to ascertain whether they wish to stay and renew the tenancy or leave and give notice. We'll recommend any further tenancy duration based on their payment history and how well they have looked after the property and we'll serve any required section Notices if you decide to want the property back or if you decide to increase the rent.
What it costs
There is an initial one-off set-up cost of 50% of the first month's rent, plus VAT (and a minimum charge of £320 plus VAT or £384 including VAT). This covers the duration of the relationship with us.
Thereafter, we charge 10% of the monthly rental amount, plus VAT.
If your tenant wishes to renew the tenancy agreement at the end of their initial tenancy, we charge £34 plus VAT (£40.80 including VAT) to arrange either a new six or twelve month tenancy agreement.
If your tenant wishes to leave and you'd like us to re-find you a new tenant, we charge 40% of the first month's rent, plus VAT (and a minimum charge of £250 plus VAT or £300 including VAT).
What you'll need
If it's the first time you've let your property, you'll need an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). If you don't have one, we can arrange one for you. They are currently valid for ten years.
You'll need a valid Landlord's Gas Safety Certificate. If you don't have one, we can arrange one for you. They are valid for 12 months.
