Tenant screening is a complex process if you are to find those who will pay their rent on time, look after your property and stay long-term. You don’t want to have a bad tenant on your hands where problems can occur such as not leaving your property or you having to implement legal action. A good property management company will vet all their tenants first by looking at their background to see if they have a good track record and identify any potential red flags.

Void periods are bad news for landlords, so it’s vital that you find a good tenant as soon as possible in order to maximise your rental income. If a property management company feels your property(ies) need a spruce up, they will suggest any cosmetic improvements that could be implemented in order to enhance its appeal. They should also have a suitable marketing strategy in place to attract the attention of tenants, for example advertising on property portals, announcing new listings on social media, using good photography and writing engaging property descriptions.

There have been continuous updates to existing legislation as well as new legislative measures for landlords, and more is expected. From Right to Rent Checks and the Homes Act to Serving a Section 21 notice, keeping abreast of the legislative changes is a full-time job in itself, which is why a property management company is so beneficial in this respect. They will keep you up to date whilst ensuring you meet your legal obligations specified in the tenancy agreement that both you and your tenant sign. These can vary between contracts, but all agreements will hold you responsible for keeping structural, electrical and plumbing items safe and in good repair. By making sure you are abiding by the law and managing tenant relations, your Property Manager can help save you a ton of legal fees and fines down the line.

A good property management company will advise on what the optimum rent should be based on their local market knowledge. If you set your rent too high you risk taking longer to find somebody, whilst setting it too low means you will lose out financially. They will also navigate rental increases for you and inform your tenant(s).

For most tenants, the speed of response to any problems they may have is one of the most important factors when maintaining a good relationship with you. This is only exacerbated by having multiple tenants in multiple properties. It is inevitable that at some point a landlord will need to have some repair work done, whether minor or major, and so your property manager will field tenant maintenance requests to see if and when work is required. If it is, they can ensure qualified, experienced tradesman get out to the property quickly. Our little black book of vetted companies for example ensure any work is carried out to an acceptable standard, without it costing the earth. We also offer a 7 days a week service to handle emergencies calmly and professionally. This means that you, the landlord, is not distracted away from your daily tasks to cope with unexpected problems. The result of this is a reduction in tenant turnover, minimising the risk of large expensive problems and reduced stress levels.
