Being a landlord can be rewarding, but it is also challenging. You may be surprised at how much work is involved with the process. From finding the right property, vetting tenants, managing the property, and undertaking a wide range of administrative tasks, being a landlord is often a full-time task. If you want to make the most of your opportunities as a landlord, you should let with SC Property Management Services.
Welcoming a tenant to your property
You must welcome a tenant to your property effectively and efficiently. If you have a dependable tenant in place, you can reduce the likelihood of problems and issues arising. We carry out tenant reference checks and credit checks on your behalf. This ensures you make an informed decision as to what tenant you allow to stay in your rental property.
You are also required to carry out a Right To Rent check on tenants before you allow them to stay, and we do this on your behalf. We will also arrange an inventory check for your rental property at the point of the tenant moving in.
An inventory check is one of the most important documents a landlord has, as it provides a reference guide for the condition of the property. Many disputes between landlords and tenants can be avoided if you have a dependable inventory check-in place.
We ensure you are legally compliant
As a landlord, you are responsible for ensuring the health and safety of your rental property is of a suitable standard. We can take the stress and pressure out of this process for you. We will arrange for an annual safety inspection to take place, we will organise electrical safety and PAT tests, and we will make sure your rental property has an appropriate Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
We will inspect and maintain your property
A regular inspection is essential in maintaining the property, and we will carry out a review every six months. As the first line tenant contact, we ensure you don’t need to remain in constant contact with your tenant while ensuring there is clear communication. We will appoint a contractor to maintain the property and manage repairs.
By responding swiftly to problems, you provide tenants with a high standard of service while also maintaining the rental property in excellent condition.
We manage money on your behalf#
One of the biggest issues landlords face is collecting money from tenants. This is a situation many people would rather avoid, and we can take care of this for you. If you would like peace of mind about monthly rental fee collection, allow us to manage this process for you. We are highly experienced in money matters in the rental sector, and we will ensure you are paid on time and in full every month.
