Finding good Tenants in Oxford
If only it was easy to find reliable, honest tenants who you could trust to look after your property? You can put an advert in your local newspaper but can often attract tenants who want to avoid credit checks and references often because they have bad credit or cannot give a good landlord reference. You’re aware that the majority of people look online for property but as a private landlord how can you get your property on the major portals Rightmove & Zoopla? With so many people looking online how can you make sure you aren’t missing out?
We will advertise your property on all of the major online property portals, Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location. We match the property to people we have waiting on our database. We will qualify all leads that come in to make sure they are suitable and organise viewings. We do the viewings for you. Try and find some-one asap to avoid void periods.
We take the stress away for you.
We fully reference all applicants to make sure they have a good credit rating and affordability.
We check with the previous landlord to see if they have paid the rent on time and also if they’ve looked after the property. Would they rent to them again?
Call employer to check they earn what they say they do. Also check position permanent and not temporary or on a trial period.
We provide a thorough photographic inventory which is usually around 20-30 pages long. This will prove invaluable if any disputes. We have won a lot of disputes with our inventories and check outs.
We can also do a check out.
We give you the choice of lodging the deposit yourself with an approved scheme or we will lodge it for you with the DPS. We are fully aware of the legislation and will check we follow it correctly.
We will issue prescribed information to ensure you are covered.
You know the feeling, the phone call in the middle of the night, just when you are sitting down to dinner or when you are hard at work yourself. Why does it always happen at the most inconvenient of moments? Wouldn’t it be great if some one else could take that call and deal with it all for you leaving you to concentrate on the other important things in your life.
You’ve heard of letting agents who offer a management service but aren’t they expensive? You like to use your own tradespeople that you trust. You might even like to do the maintenance yourself. Keeping control of the costs is a top priority isn’t it?
We give you the choice of contractors (your own or yourself or ours) We will always approve any work and confirm costs with you prior to any work being done so you can keep control of costs. Maintenance stated on and original invoices sent with your monthly landlord statement. 10% per month. Not expensive.
So your move in went smoothly. Rent details have been organised, when it happened. The dispute! It may be a breach of contract, late rent, dispute on move out. Where do you go from here? It can all get very personal and upsetting. Wouldn’t it be nice to take away the worry of whether the rent will be paid on time each month? Tenants aren’t always aware of the fact that you may have a mortgage to pay and the banks won’t wait for you. When they don’t pay you’ve either got to take the approach of knocking on the door which not all people are comfortable with or leave another voice mail only to be told “I’ll get it to you by the end of the week” How do you take the stress away.
