Charles Kimbell offers a full management service which includes:
- Advertising of your property, via Local Press, Internet (Rightmove and own Website), Yellow Pages.
- Full referencing of applicants resulting in a *rent guarantee warranty, the cost of which is included in our fees (*subject to terms and conditions).
- Drawing up a tenancy agreement and taking a deposit (and placement in a government approved scheme) and receiving the first months rent.
- Checking and countersigning an inventory of the property, in and out, and contacting utility companies (except BT) to have the names changed and notify meter readings.
- Ongoing management of the property dealing with any maintenance problems the tenants encounter during their time at the property.
Once the property has been let Charles Kimbell’s services continue with:
- Rent collection - the balance of which, less any deductions, is transferred directly to your account, using the BACS system.
- Inspections - internally and externally and reporting to the landlord.
- Liaising with tenants re maintenance and organising repairs in consultation with the landlord and overseeng the annual gas safety checks.
This includes advertising your property and finding a tenant, fully referencing them, drawing up the tenancy agreements and then handing over to the landlord at the commencement of the tenancy.
Under separate negotiation we can add “extras” to the above such as inventories, placement of the deposit, inspections and rent collection (if for example a landlord goes abroad for a period of time).
An Energy Performance Certificate is required by law to advertise a property for rent, which we can arrange at the very competitive rate of £72.00 inc VAT. Please contact us for details.
