How is the rent 'guaranteed'?
Your rent is paid by directly by us. It will be paid to you on the day it is due without fail throughout the term of your contract with us regardless of if the property is empty or not. It is not reliant on us being paid by our sub tenant or clients. The rent is not reliant either on a insurance policy payout.
Who lives in the house?
We let the property to tenants as you would normally. These tenants are meticulously vetted and the vast majority are working class professional tenants however we do have a working relationship with many organisations such as local councils and corporate relocation agencies. Whoever the tenant, we ensure that the property is let accordingly to any license stipulations the property has or any requirements you have set upon us.
Property Upkeep / Maintenance
We do not just guarantee the rent. We also guarantee the upkeep of your property. Part of our undertaking ensures that we return the property at the end of our contract in the same condition we received it in. We also take responsibility of most maintenance issues that arise during the tenancy at no cost to you.
Do you lose control of the property?
NO. You will still have all the options and rights over the property as you would do in a 'normal' tenancy. You are free to inspect the property every quarter and you are able to end the tenancy with the same notice period. There are some slight restrictions but ultimately, you are the landlord and we as both your agent and tenant will comply with the conditions you have set to us.
What kind of rent can I expect?
Unlike some of our competitors, we guarantee the rent according to the private rental market which is considerably higher than rents offered by local councils.
Every property has a different value and we proudly tailor our rental offers to ensure your property gets what it deserves. For an accurate quote, please contact us.
