How to Reduce Stress when Renting a Property
If you own a rental property, or you are a landlord of several investment properties, we can take that load off your plate with our property management services.
Our property management service is so valued by our clients that, in many properties we manage, both tenants and landlords renew their agreements.
This involves dealing with mortgage lenders, sorting out rent collection, tax matters, insurance cover, utility bills, keys and inventories, and getting safety certificates for gas, electrics and appliances. The list goes on, as your property manger, we can do all of that for you.
Once your property is fit for people to move in, we will then manage it throughout the tenancy, providing regular account statements along the way.
One of our dedicated property managers will have your property in their care. In addition the property is overseen by one of the partners in Douglas Huston LLP checking on the status at least once a month and normally on a fortnightly basis.
We will also arrange routine maintenance checks and give full visit reports, including photos if you want them. Over the years we have learned which contractors we can trust, and we use only professional suppliers who will do the best quality and most cost-effective work on your property.
When it is time for a new tenancy, we will arrange an inventory check-out, help negotiate any damages and reimbursements and, if need be, offer advice on insurance claims.
Along with property and rental management, our interior solutions team can also advise you on ways to refresh or redecorate your property to make sure you get the best return from your property and avoid unnecessary downtime between lets.
Our residential property management service is competitively priced and as an RICS registered firm you have peace of mind that our accounts are holding money in properly regulated accounts with an FSA regulated bank.
Deposits are handled in the correct manner and held in an appropriate account.
Whether you have never had property management or wish to change agents we can make the transfer a smooth and seamless process taking over slowly or in one swift move.
We will tailor our service to meet your needs and demands, for a confidential discussion please do not hesitate to contact Gareth or Douglas on 028 90 683 711
