Published by: Saint Property ServicesProfessional property management, or dedicated property management, helps you control your properties without getting bogged down in day-to-day management. This can be especially tricky if you own several properties or live too far away to pop in to check on things.
This is where Saint Property Services comes in. As Nottingham’s leading independent property agent, we have a deep understanding of the local market, landlord needs, and tenant management. Here are just a few of the benefits of working with a dedicated property management team.
A Deep Understanding of Legislation and Requirements
Managing a property requires a lot of juggling. Insurance, gas safety checks, electrical systems checks, plumbing, maintenance, deposit management, and fire safety are just a few of the balls you need to keep in the air. If you let a property, as well as work full-time, this can be a truly laborious task and potentially land you in hot water should you fail to meet regulations. For example, failure to put your tenant’s deposit into an approved deposit scheme can cost you if a tenant stops paying rent and even hefty fines or imprisonment.
Our team helps keep on top of all the paperwork to give you peace of mind and protect your rights. We not only work through the paperwork but communicate with you so you know exactly what and why a check is necessary. Our team also makes use of professional scheduling to book checks well in advance so that you and your tenants have the foresight to plan for site visits.
Ideally, a tenant will pay rent regularly and in time according to the rental agreement. Our team adds an extra level of security so if a tenant fails to make a payment or pays in part, we provide support and advice to get payments on track with the least amount of resistance or concern.
Maintenance is a constant in property management. Buildings weather all seasons and age as a result. Our bespoke property management team uses their extensive list of contractors to ensure that no matter the issue, there is always someone you can trust to carry out inspections or repairs. This stitch in time approach also limits any damage before it becomes a bigger issue. We fix that leaky tap before it becomes damp or repair that crack in the wall before it needs scaffolding. All to save you time, money, and headaches.
A planned maintenance program is another key aspect of this service as it allows you to communicate and plan with tenants to ensure that any work carried out is as inconvenient as possible. For emergency work, we have a list of reliable plumbers, electricians and the like, so if your tenant needs to call us on Christmas day because a pipe’s burst, we can help sort it ASAP.
For larger projects, we use our property know-how to keep an eye on any renovation work and make sure it ticks the boxes for regulations and needs. We have access to specialists in a wide range of fields from property surveyors to contractors and can provide you with the very best in the business.
Finding Tenants and Renewals
In our unique position as property managers, we hear about the headaches tenants and landlords face. We use this knowledge to make your property as attractive as possible to create healthy competition and land you a great deal. Through our channels, we can reach a rich network of prospective tenants who we vet, reference check, and meet before deciding who to recommend as a tenant.
Once you’ve made your choice we then get to work setting up the contracts, approved deposit scheme, checking inventories, and generally supervising any movements in or out of the property. We can also provide support by serving notice or assisting with checks before new tenants move in to make sure your property is in the same condition you left it with the previous tenants.
Maximising Your Potential
A property portfolio is a great tool for passive income. When managed correctly, it can become a tool for personal wealth development and further property investment. With our support, we can ensure your property is advertised effectively to reach your target audience. Once rented, we reduce running costs with regular maintenance checks and work designed to save you money in the long term and ensure the longevity of your build.
Our skillset runs the gamut from residential property management to commercial property management and even Airbnb management. This wide range of skills along with our drive to serve customers in the Nottingham area with the very best service has allowed us to become one of the leading independent property agents for over 10 years.
