S&B Services

Property management

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.

Refurbishment

We know from experience that refurbishing a property can greatly increase your chances of letting a property more successfully. The results can be twofold with increased rent and also attracting the very best tenants.

Our refurbishment team are on hand to help with both light and full refurbishments. From simply re-painting to full-scale refurbishments we are on hand to help. Projects can range from re-carpeting through to replacing windows, central heating systems, kitchens, bathrooms and even full-scale developments such as extensions. We have carried out many projects to date and work with professional tradesmen to ensure works are completed both on budget and on time.

Whatever the refurbishment project, your dedicated Property Manager will be on hand to manage day to day works and answer any questions you may have leaving you free to concentrate on the things that matter most to you.

Maintenance

Small maintenance works are often the jobs that we find some landlords are reluctant to resolve and as a result the most difficult to get completed. These works typically range from a leaking tap or bath seal through to misted double glazing units or broken roof tiles. Leaving small works unresolved can lead to bigger problems down the road resulting in greater expense. In our experience leaving small maintenance works unresolved often leads to tenants becoming unhappy and eventually serving notice to leave. This type of work often means finding professional tradesmen not only able to carry out a simple repair but also to look for any signs of longer-term damage to your property to ensure your investment remains safe.

Our team of approved tradesmen are on hand to carry out small maintenance works quickly. Each trade has their respective guarantees and insurances in place to ensure that works are completed to the highest standard.
