There are two types of service I offer my clients when letting a property.
This service is suitable for experienced landlords who have plenty of time to
manage the property themselves.
This service includes:
You will need to register the deposit with one of the three government approved schemes. My preferred company is The Deposit Protection Service.
All this for a one off fee of £450 + vat, £540 including vat.
This service ensures that I am the one who gets the phone call from the tenant at 10.00pm on a Saturday night to say there's a problem!
It provides all of the facilities of the 'tenant only' option but with the following,
All this for £300 +vat, (£360 including vat) and 10% + vat of the rent received.
The law changed in April 2007 regarding tenants deposits. Since that date all new tenancies have to be registered with one of three government approved schemes within 30 days of the tenancy starting. Failure to do so could make the agreement void, which would be a problem if you wanted to evict your tenants and you could be liable to a fine of up to ten times the deposit!
Further information can be found here. Scary stuff!
Energy Certificates have been introduced in October 2008 for all new residential rented property tenancy agreements. Further information can be found here.
I can arrange this for you, via a local assessor.
Landlords moving abroad
If you are a landlord who is moving abroad to live for longer than three months, you will need to complete the necessary form from HM Revenues and Customs.
Whether you are an experienced landlord or it's the first time, I can assure you of a professional, prompt, and descreet service which is on a strictly 'no let no fee' basis.
