Understanding legislationThere are now over 200 laws and legislation surrounding lettings with many arising only in the last 18 months. With breeches now carrying serious consequences, full compliance is more vital than ever. We assist you every step of the way to ensure full compliance including gas safety checks, legionnaires reporting, EPC assessments, smoke and carbon monoxide alarm compliance, safety glass, electrical testing and much more. For fully managed lettings, your property manager will ensure the correct notice is served for rent increases, repossession and non-payment of rent. Additionally, we will conduct the HMRC audit as per section 23 of the Tax and Management Act.

Our tenancy agreement has been professionally drawn up by specialist property solicitors and is reviewed regularly. For convenience the tenancy agreement document can be completed online by you and the tenants. We will collect the rent from the tenant. If you have opted in to our rent guarantee service, the rent will be paid in full on the due date. For landlords who have not opted for the guaranteed rental service, in the event that the rent is late and the tenant falls in to arrears, we will do our best to retrieve the rent.
