Here are three key questions.
1. Does your current managing agent markup services provided, or take commissions or kickbacks from suppliers? Do you know? If not, ask them.
2. If you manage your own properties, are you content to be constantly dealing with tenants’ needs? Are you sure you are complying with all legislation?
3. Do you know the total real cost of managing your properties?
The key to this challenge is to understand that being a property manager is different from being a property agent – or being a property investor.
As an investor, you should let your properties with an agent but ensure they are managed by a specialist. That’s us – and click here to find out more about the Happy Tenant Company’s unique fixed fee model.
We’re not letting agents but we have a panel of hundreds across London who have agreed to offer our landlords a preferential package. This means you pay a reduced finders fee and, really importantly, NO RENEWAL FEES. This gives you more choice of tenant and real cost savings.
We will fully manage your London property from A to Z for an annual fixed fee. All administration is in-house and we keep you and your tenants in the loop, but get on with what needs to be done. We do this from a landlord’s perspective, reflecting our history, but always seeking to deliver a great service to your tenants.
We protect your investment with a team of first class maintenance and repairs contractors, who offer highly competitive prices and a higher level of service. We are transparent so we send you a copy of the invoice. If you have your own contractors, we will be happy to work with them.
Landlord legislation keeps changing. We stay across this, keeping you up to date and therefore reducing your risk.
