Property Management Services Our objective when managing your property is to protect your interests and maintain your property in good order. We ensure you fully comply with safety regulations and our advice should minimise your risk. The maintenance obligations placed by law on the landlord can for some be considered onerous but our job is to guide you through the maze of legislation.

 

Tenancy Deposit Scheme

Under new legislation, from 6 April 2007 all deposits taken from tenants against possible non-payment of rent or damage to a property must now be covered by what is called a Tenancy Deposit Protection. This means that any landlord or agent who takes a deposit for an Assured Shorthold Tenancy must safeguard it in one of the approved tenancy deposit protection schemes. We are members of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme and will be happy to advise you on how this works. It has been developed to protect both landlords and tenants and provides an Alternative Dispute Resolution Service, which will ensure any disputes concerning deposits are resolved as swiftly as possible.


Visiting your property

During the course of the tenancy we conduct regular visits to ensure everything is in order and discuss with your tenant any issues that may have arisen. By keeping you informed, you will be better placed to make any decisions which need to be made. End of tenancy When your tenancy comes to an end our management staff will agree any dilapidations that may have arisen with you and your tenant. These will be based upon the Inventory and Schedule of condition taken at the start and end of the tenancy. Following which, upon your instructions we will ensure that any necessary work is carried out. Repairs We will of course instruct repairs on your behalf where necessary using our comprehensive list of tried and tested contractors or, alternatively, you may prefer us to use a contractor already known to you.


Refurbishment

For larger works we can obtain a number of quotes and, if necessary, act as your surveyors and oversee appointed contractors. As a rule of thumb you should be looking to redecorate every three to five years and replace or upgrade the kitchen and bathroom every seven to ten years. To minimise disruption, wherever possible, refurbishment should be carried out between tenancies.
