What about Inventories?

We recommend that you produce an inventory to avoid any dispute at the end of the tenancy. It is there to protect you and your tenant. We will be more than happy to provide this service for you.

How do you ensure that you place good tenants?

We are very thorough with our tenant profiling. The application procedure is as follows:

  • TENANT CREDIT HISTORY - This will tell us about any bad credit history, CCJ's or Bankruptcy.
  • PREVIOUS LANDLORD REFERENCES - We will collect a reference from the previous landlord
  • GUARANTOR – A Guarantor will be used to secure the tenancy in some instances e.g. the tenant does not pass the rental calculation or we have not been able to secure references.
  • RIGHT TO RENT check to ensure that tenants meet new HM Customs requirements.
What is a Guarantor?

We use credit referencing companies to carry out checks on the tenant. In the event that the tenant does not pass, the Guarantor effectively underwrites the agreement to ensure that the rent will be paid. The Guarantor will also be credit checked.

1) Boost Yield

Our pro-active approach to sourcing tenants will accelerate the time it takes to rent out your property and reduce potential void periods. As a result of high tenant demand, you will benefit from being able to hand-pick the tenants who wish to live in your property.

2) Building your portfolio

We will assist in helping you to build your investment portfolio if required, detailing areas which are predicted to experience the highest increases in capital growth and assessing rental values so that we can ensure that investments made are fully secure.

3) Save Time

Our team is fully trained to manage matters during the tenancy, including but not limited to ongoing maintenance issues, processing rents, accounts management, inspections and the return of tenancy bonds. Your time is valuable, therefore let us take the reins, giving you more time to focus on other key areas of life.

4) Modern comprehensive inventory reports

We focus on the quality of our inventory reporting system, accurately evidencing the condition of your property at the start of the tenancy. This allows us to track the condition of the property throughout the tenancy. It also reassures all parties that any potential proposed deduction from a bond is fair and will more likely be backed up by a tenancy deposit adjudicator should any dispute arise.

5) Comprehensive referencing

We thoroughly reference each tenant by carrying out a credit check, right to rent check, assess their financial suitability and request a reference from their Landlord.

6) Inspections

We regularly inspect properties and monitor how well the property is being maintained, providing detailed inspection reports and informing you of the condition of the property. Should the tenant need to improve on their tenancy obligations, we will visit more often until issues are resolved

7) Maintenance and Legal

We realise the importance of dealing with reliable and trustworthy suppliers in connection with any work carried out on your property. We ensure that all the suppliers we work with are correctly insured before instruction. We ensure that legal compliance is adhered to at all times giving you additional peace of mind and security.
