Tenants - Why choose a professionally managed property?

Are you currently renting? Is your property managed through a professional agent?

We believe that ensuring your home is managed by a professional agent is a big bonus!

Here are some of the reasons why.

✅ Legal ownership There are some people that appear to be landlords but who are actually tenants themselves and are subletting the property without the relevant permissions (there are also those that do it with permission). If you are not officially allowed to occupy the premises, your home may be at risk.

✅ Client money protect - All agents are required to state whether or not they have Client Money Protection, so consumers can make a choice. This is an insurance which provides compensation to landlords, tenants and other clients, should an agent misappropriate their rent, deposit or other client funds.

✅ Servicing and compliance – An agent have a reputation to uphold and a legal requirement to ensure that your property is safe! From a gas check on the boiler to a banister rail at a complaint height with the correct spacing of the spindles. All these small measures create a bubble of protection around the occupier of the home.

✅ Communication – clear line of communication our phones are 9-5 Mon-Fri & 247/365 emergency line. Our agency is there for our tenants every day of the week.

✅ Regular inspections – This is not to just check up on the tenant, this service is a real benefit to everyone. Imagine having a trained professional periodically into your property to inspect your sealing around your bath for leaks, condensation, ventilation, gutters and any other potential hazards or defects. These things are all checked under our inspection service.

✅ Timescales/Trades – we set strict timescales for works to be completed within a property. Our trades are all qualified professionals with all the correct knowledge and qualifications.
