Faq

  • What happens if a tenant doesn’t pay their bills?

    If the tenancy agreement states the tenants are liable for utility bills, then the tenant is directly liable to the providers. The landlord has no liability for these bills if the tenant does not pay during their tenancy liability period.

  • What happens if a tenant doesn’t pay their rent?

    We follow a strict schedule for chasing unpaid rent and advise the landlord if we believe issuing notice to end the tenancy is advisable, or when legal action should be considered. We are fortunate enough to say this rarely happens, but it can of course be an element of risk.

  • How will I know my property is being looked after during the tenancy?

    If you employ us to provide our Fully Managed service we will be carry out routine visits and report back to you.

  • Do I need a special mortgage?

    Your mortgage company must provide you with permission to let your property, usually this means they will change your mortgage to what is known as a Buy-to-Let mortgage.

  • Do I need special insurance?

    A landlord must ensure their buildings and contents insurance provider are aware the property is being let so they can provide the correct cover. There are additional insurance options available to landlords, such as Rent & Legal protection insurance which are worth considering for peace of mind.

  • What will it cost me to use a management company?

    This depends on the area you are in and the service level that you opt for. Contact us to find out what services are available to you.

  • How can I identify a good tenant?

    We do this by asking some preliminary questions that enable us to determine if they will be a suitable tenant. Next they complete a detailed questionnaire and application process which then gets verified by running credit checks and contacting referees.

  • What does a management company do for a landlord?

    Too much to list in one short answer! Everything a landlord should be doing to ensure their property is safe and compliant to let whilst ensuring the daily tasks are covered such as managing maintenance issues, routine visits, documentation is correct, rent is collected, and invoices are paid.

  • Why should I use a management company?

    As professionals in the residential lettings industry we are trained, qualified and keep up to date with the regular changes to legislation. There are already over 150 rules and regulations a landlord must abide by in the letting of their property, and our role is to ensure these are adhered to as well as taking the time and hassle factors away from the landlord in the day to day running of lettings.
