Landlords Information here is for potential new landlords to join our growing portfolio

Property Management

We know getting the right tenant is probably the most important part of renting properties out.  Having almost 20 years of experience managing houses in the East Lancashire area we have grown a vast knowledge of tenants and do many forms of referencing and background checks to help whittle out the “tenants from hell”.
Many tenants come back to us and recommend us to their friends and family and this benefits all our landlords.

Property assessment

We carry out a free rental assessment on any property.  We can offer advice should any improvements be made to achieve maximum rent or to ensure the property complies with current regulations.
We aim to value the property on the current market this way the house is attractive to tenants whilst still achieving maximum income.

Viewing of properties

We show tenants round properties, this way we meet them and the first point of contact us quite often gives us a good insight into each applicant.  Viewings are throughout the day when you get the best natural light, however, we can also conduct viewings in evenings and at weekend to accommodate people who struggle to take time off work.

Tenancy application processing/refereeing

We use a number of referencing companies to carry out background checks any potential applicant (s).

Tenancy agreement

Our management software is one of the best on the market and tenancies are checked by to ensure suitability.

Inventory

Having an in-depth inventory safeguard the deposit should a claim be required for any damages caused.

EPC

These are required prior to us marketing any property.  We can arrange these quickly and at a discounted rate.

Gas safety Certificate / Electrical certificate

This not only protects the tenant but also protects you as the landlord should anything go wrong.

Deposit registration
All our deposits are registered with My Deposits.

Maintenance
We have an array of contractors and are able to offer a full maintenance service should you not have your own contractors.  We are also able to project manage any refurbishment.

Tenancy inspections
We carry out routine inspections for two reasons, to ensure that the house is being looked after and to check for any maintenance which may be required to ensure the house does not deteriorate (a small roof leak can turn into something much more serious).

Check out
A full inspection is carried out once a tenant has vacated and a full report is sent to the tenant and landlord.  Any deductions to made against the deposit will be negotiated with the tenant.
