Whether moving to a new area and renting out your home, you own more than one house which you let and manage, or you simply do not have time to manage a rental property, our letting services could be the answer to your landlord problems.

One of the biggest mistakes many landlords make is overlooking the prospect of using a fully managed service. Often landlords decide to manage the property alone, however, the assistance of a professional could be hugely beneficial. Property management companies deal directly with the tenants, saving landlords a great deal of time and money during the entire rental process. Knowing that both your tenants and property are being handled correctly is a critical part of choosing a property management letting agent. The services offered by estate agents can often be confusing, so we have simplified how our lettings services are packaged to make the choices simple.

FULLY MANAGED

Tenant Support: Instead of having to deal with tenants, John Bray can sort out any issues on your behalf. Our services cover a 24-hour basis and we can assist whenever we are needed. Dealing with complaints can also be a strain when renting out a property, however, we can handle all communications and keep your involvement to a minimum.

Long Term Tenants: We go to great lengths to qualify our applicants and ensure we are matching the right people to the right properties. There is also a slimmer chance of experiencing a high tenant turnover, due to the quick and effective support services we provide. Should any changes occur such as increases in rent, tenants may be more willing to co-operate if they believe they are in good hands.

Legal Compliance: Experienced landlords may be aware that tenants can sometimes run up plenty of legal issues which can cost both time and money. We are up to date on the latest legal requirements and constantly changing legislation and follow strict compliance guidelines set out by the Guild of Property Professionals. We are also the only member of the Guild in Hastings. This means any legal issues that arise are dealt with in the correct manner and supported by our compliance officer.

Prompt payment: Allowing a property management company to take over means that the pressure is taken off when it comes to collecting rent payments, whether the perfect or difficult tenants. Should tenants not pay their rent on time, we have the power to enforce the relevant assured shorthold tenancy (AST) regulation and take the appropriate steps to ensure landlords are fully covered. Our state-of-the-art technology means all payments are monitored and tracked to ensure you get paid on time.

Lower Management Costs: By working with John Bray, you also have access to our maintenance resources who will keep the property in good working order. It is a much cheaper option than hiring externally. Also, the maintenance team will become familiar with tenants and should ensure that the job is completed correctly and professionally. We work regularly with trusted partners, which means prioritising any work required on your property, ensuring tenants and landlords are happy.

RENT COLLECTION

If you are happy managing your own property but would prefer the rent collection to be dealt with separately then we can help. Rent is collected in accordance with the tenancy agreement and deposited in your account regular a clockwork. Any rent arrears are quickly identified and dealt with in accordance with the relevant Landlord and Tenant Acts. If notice needs to be served, then we will also handle that for you in accordance with government guidelines and government compliance requirements.

TENANT FIND

Finding the right tenant is not easy. We make sure we meet your needs and those of the tenant to match the right properties to the right people. This means happy tenants that will look after your property long term. We have fully qualified tenants ready and waiting to rent your property. Referencing and deposits are managed by authorised third parties. We also provide additional insurance and deposit services that can further protect both tenants and landlords for additional peace of mind and ensure swift payment.
