Landlord Information

Communication and availability are the two key fundamentals for making a business relationship work, but it starts with respect. As a landlord, your property portfolio is essentially your estate. You have taken the time to buy a property and prepare it to be a place for other people to live happily, and we understand how important it is to maintain it as a working asset. It follows with service. You’ve done your job, now it’s time for us to do ours. Here is an outline of the three levels of service we offer for letting your property:

1. TENANT FIND

Free market appraisal – no obligation just good advice.
Instruct us to begin – now you’re happy, we take the property details and some photos whilst you’re signing our T&Cs
Provide us with a set of keys – good access to your property is vital for us
To Let board is erected
We spread the message – displaying your property in our prominent showroom, as well as contacting our database of waiting tenants, and marketing on many websites including Rightmove, Propertylive, KMMaxfield.com, Twitter and Facebook

2. TENANT FIND & RENT COLLECTION

In addition to finding a suitable tenant, we will continue to collect the rental payments, and forward it directly to your bank account after deducting our fee.

3. TENANT FIND & FULL MANAGEMENT

In addition to all of the above, we will keep every aspect of your property managed on your behalf, though we will always consult with you before you incur any charges. This service includes:
Periodic inspections
Arrange for quotes for any breakdowns, repairs and cleaning required
Inspect the property before tenants leave, prior to returning any bond money
Provide an inventory of the property, if required (additional fee applies)
Please be aware that as a landlord, you are legally required to comply with the Gas Safety Regulations 1998, Electrical Equipment Safety Regulations, Furniture & Furnishings Fire Safety Regulations and Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations. We can offer you guidance on this if you require, but don’t worry, we’re just as regulated as you are.
