Condition Reports – before a tenant enters the property an inspection is conduced to complete a detailed report (with photos) of the property. This step is then repeated once the tenants vacate to ensure that the property is left in the same condition as when the tenant took possession.
Inspections – conducted 3 times per year and are essential to ensure that your property is being maintained to an acceptable standard. An inspection report and photos are sent to you after each inspection outlining the condition of the property and any maintenance that requires attention.
Arrears – daily tracking is conducted and contact made via text, phone, email and in writing from day 1. Form 11 Breach notices are issued as soon as possible (day8) and you are kept informed as soon as the breach is issued and when it is remedied. If a breach is not remedied and upon your instruction (in writing) a Form 12 Notice to Leave (minimum 7 days) will be issued. A variety of rent payment methods are offered to tenants, with a strong recommendation made for direct debits and Centrepay payments, this dramatically reduces the chance of arrears.

You will be notified of these repairs via phone or email. All other repairs are classed as routine repairs and you will notified of these within 24 hours, these repairs will not be attended to until your approval is given.
