Our ‘Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements’ have been significantly upgraded and altered to protect you from any disputes  that can occur with poorly written agreements.

This is the proof of condition report of the property at the start of the tenancy. Should there be any dispute outside reasonable fair wear and tear, the Inventory is our evidence to support a claim.

Notify Utilities

Once tenants have moved in, we then write to all utility companies, to give details of new tenants and new meter readings. We will also notify the utility providers at the end of the tenancy too.

Checking tenants in

On the day of tenancy commencement, an appointment is made for the new tenants’ to sign-up and handover of all legal and relating documents, including Tenancy Agreement, Deposit Terms and Conditions, Gas Safety Certificate (where applicable), Electrical Installation Condition Report and Energy Performance Certificate. Inventory and a Key record of which keys have been released, which acts as an extra safeguard when the tenancy ends.

We instruct the tenant/s to set up a standing order for future rental payments to reach our account on or before the agreed rent due date. In the event of late payments,  will contact the tenant to recover any late rental payments and investigate the reason for late payment and hopefully avoid any non-payment re-occurring.

Hold Tenants’ Deposit under DPS scheme

The deposit is taken at the start of the tenancy to cover any unpaid rent or damages and dilapidations above reasonable wear and tear in the property. By law, the deposit must be held securely in a government approved scheme, which can be registered by either the Landlord or Agent where requested. The maximum Deposit we can take equates to 5 weeks Rent.

Property Inspection Visits

We will inspect your property initially after the first 3 months from commencement of the tenancy. We will only carry out the inspection with the tenants . This is to see the condition of the property, and ensure that the property is being maintained to an acceptable standard. In addition we want to ensure that the tenant is Happy and to resolve any ‘teething ‘ issues that there might be. We aim to carry out inspections three times per year. The priority is the maintenance of your property and in addition to maintain regular communication with the tenants.

Maintenance

In the event of anything going wrong at the property, the tenant will report this directly to us on our Maintenance call line. Once we have found the problem  we will established whether a contractor is needed and who the liability falls with. If we cannot fix the problem, we would then arrange for one of our trusted tradesman to visit the property at the earliest opportunity and obtain quotations for any necessary remedial work.

Notice(s) to End the Tenancy

Check Out

At the end of the tenancy, we will arrange a pe Check out Inspection  with the tenants, prior to carrying  out a final ‘Check Out’ inspection report. We want the property to be handed over in the same clean condition that it was at the start of the tenancy.

Rent guarantee & Legal expenses cover

Having a rent guarantee policy in place can protect you from being out of pocket as a landlord. Additionally, we also offer a comprehensive Legal Expenses service – whereby landlords will be covered from any costly legal fees during an eviction process.

  • These policies are available in either 6 or 12-month terms, without an excess.
  • Policy covers a maximum of £1,500 rent per month, up to £10,000 per claim or the equivalent of 6 months’ rent.
  • Policy further covers up to £25,000 of legal expenses (solicitors’ costs) to evict tenants.
  • Our policy covers the property, not the tenants, so if the tenants change during the policy term the cover still stands, so long as the new tenants have been referenced and passed.
  • Claims for rent arrears will be paid up until vacant possession is gained, the policy lapses or the term of the tenancy expires, whichever comes first.
  • Policies can be renewed even if a claim is in progress.

We use the same company for our rent guarantee protection, who carry out the stringent tenant referencing checks before tenancy commencement. As this company will have already gathered certain information relating to the tenants, this ensures for a smoother and quicker process.
