We provide an ongoing service alongside the lettings process, become the point of contact for your tenant during their tenancy. Furthermore we process all rental payments and organise any repairs required to the property during the tenancy, credit your account and provide you with a monthly statement.
Throughout the tenancy we undertake regular property inspections, ensure that your tenant is looking after the property well. As we head towards the end of the contract we work with both yourselves and the tenants to negotiate a renewal of the agreement or remarket the property ensuring a hassle free turn around.
When it comes to the end of the tenancy we deal with the release of the deposit and negotiate any deductions to come from the deposit which can at times be a fractious process. We ensure it is handled delicately and efficiently.
The service is suitable for new or overseas landlords or anyone who prefers not to be involved with the day-to-day running of the rental. Linnet’s full management service allows you to have a stress free rental process.
Find Tenant Only
This service includes us advising you on the likely rental income for your property. We then market your property and co-ordinate viewings with prospective tenants. Once we have an applicant for your property we then undertake the references and if successful, prepare the legal paperwork relating to the tenancy.
Linnet also arrange an inventory and schedule of condition at the property. We will collect the first month’s rent and deposit and will credit this to your account, minus our fee. At this point we advise both yourself and your tenants that rent collection, property maintenance and contact with the tenant become your responsibility. This service type is best suited to landlords who are experienced but more importantly have the knowledge and time to ensure their rental property continues to meet legal requirements and that their tenants are happy within the property.
