Many landlords realise that time is their most precious asset. They also know that property should provide a passive income.
Managing properties and tenants is time consuming, and can be stressful.
Do you want to receive the call at midnight about the boiler being broken? How would you like to have to chase rent arrears?
If you value your time properly, you will know that your time is better spent on the more important things. This could be your career, your hobbies, growing your property portfolio, or simply having more time with your loved ones. We often find that landlords view managing their own properties as a cost saver, but they give no consideration to the value of their own time. Managing properties and tenants takes time and lots of experience to do properly.
DON'T GET CAUGHT OUT
Then there’s the legal complexities to consider. Legislation surrounding Residential Property Letting changes all of the time and getting it wrong can, and does, become very costly and very stressful for many landlords.
- Do you know the penalty for not serving the deposit prescribed information within 30 days?
- Did you know that to increase the rent, you need to serve a Section 13 notice?
- Would you know how and when to serve a Section 8 Notice?
- Do you know that the How To Rent Guide needs to be supplied to tenants for all new tenancies, as well as all renewals?
- Do you know what kind of smoke detection system you need in place?
- Do you have a plumber on speed dial?
If the answer to any of these questions is ‘no’, you should ask a Professional Agent to manage your property for you.
EXPERIENCE AND EXPERT KNOWLEDGE
Collectively we have over 25 years experience managing properties in Leeds. This extensive experience, combined with excellent systems, technology, and a truly customer-focussed team, means that we can look after your assets effectively and efficiently, taking away all the hassle from you.
We have a 24/7 specialist repair reporting website for tenants that can be accessed without a login and which is available in over 40 languages. This helps us to deal with repairs quickly and effectively.
We regularly inspect the property during tenancies to ensure it is being looked after properly and to find out if any maintenance is required. We find that many landlords that manage their own properties neglect to do this and later find out that little problems have turned into big ones, with big costs attached to them.
By regularly carrying out inspections, we can head off any problems and save large sums of money at end of tenancy refurbishments.
We send you a detailed report, including photographs, to illustrate the condition of the property periodically.
Our professional and personable service will ensure that you know what is happening with your property at all times, without having to get involved with your tenants.
You will hear from us if there is an issue but you won’t get hit with maintenance bills without knowing there was a problem in the first place. There are no nasty surprises!
You will also receive a quick call from us once a month, even if nothing is happening, just to touch base and to see if there is anything we can assist you with, or simply to provide you with peace of mind.
We are professionally accredited members of the Association Of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA), as well as a SAFE Agent member, and a member of The Property Ombudsman (TPO). These fantastic associations mean that we abide by a strict code of professional conduct. We also hold Client Money Protection (CMP) and Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance and our accounts are audited by a Chartered Accountant each year. All of this means that your interests are safeguarded and protected at all times.
You can rest assured that we are looking after your property and your tenants very well. You will enjoy peace of mind in the knowledge that you are ahead of complicated and ever changing legislation. Relax - we’ll take care of it all for you.
