In addition to dealing with commercial (Buy to Let) landlords, Accent Lettings & Management also handle a number of properties belonging to the parents of ex university students who have moved on, as well as other landlords letting out inherited properties or their own homes while they are working abroad.
We also look after homes while they remain unoccupied, belonging to clients who would prefer not to let out their properties while they are absent.
A member of our team will be present at all viewings of our managed properties. This enables us to gather feedback and to assess potential tenants in person, rather than just relying on the referencing procedure.
No tenant moves into an Accent managed property until we have carried out detailed checks and received the required references. Details such as employment status, earnings, credit history and previous landlord references are all taken into consideration before anyone takes on our properties.
We compile a detailed inventory of the property and contents in both written and photographic form. All tenants must agree and sign this upon being checked into the property. It will be used as a reference when the the tenant(s) vacates to ensure its original condition.
Rental property owners in the UK are legally obliged to hold all tenant deposits in a government bonded scheme. Accent Lettings & Management are members of the Deposit Protection Service where all deposits of our managed properties are securely held.
We perform regular inspections of all managed properties (normally each 3 months). Here we check for any work that may need doing to properly maintain everything in good order; we chat with the tenants over any issues which may have arisen and deal with them appropriately.
Most management companies do not include the transfer of utilities when new occupiers move in, but we do! Also, MOST IMPORTANTLY we provide free rent guarantee and legal expenses insurance. These insurances are specifically designed to protect landlords with rented properties.
We are probably unique in this, and it saves our landlords about £150.00 per year that they would otherwise have to shell out to buy their own insurances.
As a landlord, a simple home insurance policy will not offer the level of coverage you need. Your investment will require specialist cover to protect both your rental income and any costs incurred in possible legal disputes with tenants.
