As a landlord, you might think you must do everything yourself, but using a letting agent has tangible benefits. Letting agents provide a range of essential management services, and they will work to a landlord’s individual requirements.
If you’re a new or even an experienced landlord, a letting agent might just be the solution you’re looking for to help you manage your assets.
In addition, easy2let offers landlords the option of a guaranteed rent, giving them the reassurance of a fixed, reliable monthly income.
When you use a letting agent, you’re getting expert advice. We’re specialists in our field, and we have the local knowledge to back up our organisational capabilities. Therefore, when it comes to assessing rent values and finding occupancies quickly, we’re in absolutely the right position to support your business.
A good letting agent will maximise the value of your rental property, getting the right price, and the right tenants, for you.
Finding the Right Tenants
As a landlord, finding suitable tenants for your property can be time consuming, and costly. With the support of a good letting agent, you’ll know that they are carrying out all the essential identity, residency and credit checks, and obtaining employer and current landlord references on your behalf.
Day to Day Management
Each client has their own individual needs and specific circumstances, therefore it matters that the letting agent is flexible and adaptable in the services they offer. At easy2let, we take on management responsibilities so that our landlords don’t have to.
All the things that can pull landlords in too many directions at once, such as boiler repairs, pest control, repairs and maintenance and managing contractors, we streamline through one, comprehensive service.
Issues arise that are outside the normal remit of day to day maintenance, and sometimes they are both unexpected and time consuming, especially if those times are inconvenient. It might be someone has locked themselves out of the property they are renting, or they’re encountering some other kind of difficulty.
Your letting agent will be able to deal with these issues, efficiently and effectively, which also helps you maintain good relationships with your tenants.
Dealing with Late Payments, Disputes and Evictions
A big concern for landlords is ensuring that tenants pay their rent on time. This is one area where a lettings agent can make one of the biggest differences. Why? Because, as experienced rent collectors, they will manage the situation on your behalf. Furthermore, should you opt for a guaranteed monthly rent, late payments will never need concern you again.
Lettings agents are also extremely effective resolving disputes and, where necessary, evicting tenants using the correct legal processes.
Staying up to Date with Legislation
Government legislation affecting landlords is constantly changing, and keeping up with it, and staying compliant, can seriously add to a landlord’s stress levels.
However, a letting agent will do all this for you. As experts in the property sector, we know that our reputation depends on being bang up to date with legislation, because it is our main mission to protect your assets.
We’ll stay on top of all the necessary forms and certification, and ensure your property is working as it should to maximise its value as your investment.
