Managing properties and tenants is time consuming and can be stressful, but our dedicated team is here and happy to assist with the day-to-day management of your portfolio. Where we are appointed to manage your property we will ensure that both your tenants and property receive the essential professional care required.
If you value your time properly, you will know that your time is better spent on the more important things. This could be your career, your hobbies, growing your property portfolio, or simply having more time with your loved ones. We often find that landlords view managing their own properties as a cost saver, but they give no consideration to how much of their week will be taken up doing this. Managing properties and tenants takes time and lots of experience to do properly.
At Homesforth we have extensive experience, combined with excellent internal systems, technology, and a truly customer focused team, meaning that we can look after your assets effectively and efficiently, taking away all the hassle from you.
What do we do?
We regularly inspect the property during tenancies to ensure it is being looked after properly and to find out if any maintenance is required. We find that many landlords that manage their own properties neglect to do this and later find out that little problems have turned into big ones, with large costs attached to them. By regularly carrying out inspections, we can head off any problems and save large sums of money at the end of tenancy refurbishments. We send you a detailed report, including photographs, to illustrate the condition of the property periodically.
Our professional and personable service will ensure that you know what is happening with your property at all times, without having to get involved with your tenants.
You will hear from us if there is an issue but you won’t get hit with maintenance bills without knowing there was a problem in the first place. There are no nasty surprises!
We will periodically also touch base with you, even if nothing is happening, just to keep you posted and to see if there is anything we can assist you with, or simply to provide you with peace of mind.
You can rest assured that we are looking after your property and your tenants very well. You will enjoy peace of mind in the knowledge that you are ahead of complicated and constantly changing legislation.
