Advice to Landlords
Advice to Landlords
Finding the right agent if you have not been recommended one can be difficult. We have been established in Barnet for over 25 years, boast many years of property experience and act for hundreds of landlords so are confident that we will offer the service you are looking for.
Residential Property Management Services
We have clients based around the world who rely on us to look after their Barnet properties. We deal regularly with private landlords and investment companies. We believe the most important thing to you, the landlord, is to maximise the return on your investment. Hunters guarantee to provide you with the highest standards of professionalism giving you complete peace of mind. Whether you are letting a property for the first time, or an experienced property investor, all of your letting needs will be looked after.
When an applicant shows an interest in your Premises, we will take up full references to check their suitability and credit worthiness together with employment and previous landlord references.
Inventories & Schedule of Condition
An inventory and Schedule of Condition is essential for the proper management of your Premises, whether they are let furnished or unfurnished, to reduce the risk of a dispute arising for the security Deposit (“Deposit”) and to ensure you can obtain compensation for any loss suffered.
Our fees for managing the property are one of the most competitive to be found. For these fees we will:
- Find you a suitable tenant
- Take up references and credit check
- Draw up a tenancy agreement
- Collect the rent and account to you monthly
- Make regular inspections of the property and keep you informed
- Advice on any repairs that are necessary
We also provide a letting only service where full management is not required. Full details of fees and services provided upon request. You will be responsible for all major repairs to the property except for damages caused by the tenants. Small repairs can be carried out by our contractors, or ones nominated by you, and their charges deducted from your account. We will always ask for instructions before commencing any repairs.
We will use an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement. There is no longer a minimum period for such lettings. However, if the Tenant fails to surrender possession at the expiry of the term (and in accordance with your Section 21 Notice) you will need a possession order. No such order can expire within the first six months of a Tenancy commencing, unless the Tenant is in breach.
