Letting Management

CityWest.co.uk Estate Agents provides full property and rental management services for landlords. Even with experience, managing a property can be a full-time job. One you do not need if you already have a full-time job or live overseas.

If you own a rental property, or you are a landlord of several investment homes, we can take that load off your plate with our property management services. Our property management service is so valued by our clients that, in more than eight out of ten properties we manage, both replica watches tenants and landlords renew their agreements. And many of our corporate clients will not accommodate their employees any other way.

What is involved?

There is much to do when letting out your property. To begin with, you need to prepare the property so it is ready to let. This involves dealing with mortgage lenders, sorting out rent collection, tax matters, insurance cover, utility bills, keys and inventories, and getting safety certificates for gas, electrics and appliances. The list goes on, as your property manager, we can do all of that for you.

Once your property is fit for people to move in, we will then manage it throughout the tenancy, providing regular account statements along the way.

Our dedicated property managers will have your property in their care.

CityWest.co.uk Estate Agents 24 hour Property Management Services - Peace of mind.

You do not want a call in the middle of the night from tenants with a leaking roof or broken boiler. As part of our property management services our 24-hour emergency service will be on call to handle such crises for you.

We will also arrange routine maintenance checks and give full visit reports, including photos if you want them. Over the years we have learned which contractors we can trust, and we use only professional suppliers who will do the best quality and most cost-effective work on your property.

When it is time for a new tenancy, we can arrange an independent inventory check-out, help negotiate any damages and reimbursements and, if need be, offer advice on insurance claims.

Along with property and rental management, our interior renovation services can also help you on ways to refresh or redecorate your property to make sure you get the best return from your property and avoid unnecessary void periods between lets.
