Being a landlord means having to ensure you have sufficient time to look after both your tenants and property. Essential skills required include keeping up with the many regulatory changes that come about, conducting viewings and picking the best tenant, referencing, drawing up tenancy agreements, producing inventories, registering deposits, carrying out quarterly inspections, ensuring gas safety checks take place, taking calls from tenants regarding maintenance and arranging tradesmen, overseeing works, collecting rent and checking tenants out of a property ensuring any damage is reclaimed from the original deposit.
To counteract this, our property management service has been honed over time to provide landlords with a hands-off experience and real peace of mind. Whether you have one rental property or a substantial portfolio we’re here to help ensure things go smoothly. By appointing S&B you will be allocated a Property Manager tasked with getting to know your property inside out. Our disciplined approach ensures that as a landlord you can focus on the things that matter most to you leaving us to take care of all issues. You can be involved as little or as much as you wish. If you have trades you would like us to work with we are happy with this arrangement too. Professional property management means taking care of all tenant and landlord concerns in order to produce long-term tenancies.
If you are in the process of buying a tired property we can also help oversee refurbishment works. Working with our approved building contractors we can ensure your investment gets off the ground as soon as possible.
Tired of your current agent? We offer an agent switching service too. If you have become dissatisfied with your current agent due to poor service and are looking to move agents we can help by liaising with all parties putting you back in control as quickly as possible. From your instruction we can take over an existing tenancy or start the search for new tenants immediately helping to ensure minimum disruption for your investment.
We never forget that for most people their property is possibly the largest investment they will ever make.
