Appointing a competent managing agent is a vital ingredient of a successful property investment. At Beresford Residential, we offer a comprehensive property management service that can benefit both first-time landlords and those with existing portfolios.
We’re proud to be the highest reviewed Letting Agent in our local area for customer service and it is our commitment to delivering a high quality service that makes us a popular choice for many local landlords.
Our fully comprehensive management service includes all of the following:
We ensure that all our tenants are independently referenced by a third-party agency which includes obtaining an employment reference, a previous landlord reference and an adverse credit check. We also verify the identification of each tenant and we are able to request any other checks or documentation that you may request. Our thorough checks result in only the highest calibre of tenants being recommended to you.
Our full management service ensures that your tenants receive a quick response to any maintenance issues that may arise. We have a trusted team of tradesmen that can deal with any issue, but we’re just as happy to work with any of your own preferred contractors. We also take a lot of care to ensure that you are not overpaying for repairs and that all works are completed to a high standard.
In the event of any major problems, for example when a boiler needs replacing, we will obtain a number of quotes on your behalf and we will directly oversee these repair works.
A dedicated property manager will be appointed to work on your behalf as soon as we have found tenants for your property. Throughout the tenancy, your property manager will be the main point of contact for you and your tenants. Your property manager will carry out all property inspections and they will also handle any future tenancy renewals on your behalf.
Each month we will check that your tenants have paid their rent on time. Once rent has been received we will make payment to you promptly and you will receive a monthly statement via email. In the rare event that a tenant misses their rent due date we will contact the tenant to ensure that this is promptly rectified and we will keep you updated throughout this process. We are also able to provide you with an annual accounts summary for your tax returns and we will make payment of any day-to-day expenses on your behalf.
All paperwork that you are required to complete can be electronically signed online and we accept scanned copies of any other documentation you may need to provide. We also issue all rent statements, signed tenancy agreements and annual certificates via email, so being a landlord with us is straight forward even if you are based overseas.
At the end of each tenancy, provided that you have had a professional inventory completed at the commencement of the tenancy, we will arrange a check-out report and advise you on any issues that need to be rectified at the expense of the outgoing tenant. These issues can include cleaning, general repairs and replacing any damaged or missing items.
Our unique approach to managing your property means that on average we achieve an occupancy rate of more than 99%, maximising your rental income and ensuring you have regular income that you can rely upon. Throughout your time as a landlord we can help advise you on the best strategy to make the most out of your investment and when the time comes, we can help you achieve the best possible resale price.
If you currently own or intend to purchase a residential investment property, we would be happy to discuss our management services with you in more detail. Contact your local branch to speak to one of our team.
"Beresford Residential have been managing the rental of my property since August 2011 and during that time there have been no hiccups and you have always rented the property out. You've helped me out buying new mattresses and other little things that really do go above and beyond. Prior to renting the property out through you I had to get two lots of different tenants removed via court order, so needless to say the flat seemed like a bit of a black hole back then. I know there are many more of you I have dealt with over the years but I just wanted to say a big thank you and I really do appreciate your efforts."
