Martin Pendered & Co provide a complete management service to you as a landlord in Wellingborough, Kettering, Rushden and the surrounding villages. We will visit your property, advise you on rental income and any other matters relevant to the letting of your property.
On receipt of your instruction, we will immediately place your property on the rental market to achieve a letting in as short a time as possible to produce income at the earliest possible date.
We will advertise your property with colour photos on Rightmove and our Website, in the East Northants Evening Telegraph, in our rental list and in our window display.
Once we have located a suitable tenant, we will take up references.
We can offer in most cases one year’s free rent guarantee subject to references.
We will carry out a schedule of condition and inventory on the property.
When the tenant signs the lease we obtain from them one month’s rent in advance and a deposit equivalent to one month’s rent plus £100.
We will carry out quarterly inspections on the property and report back to you.
We can arrange for a Gas Safe registered engineer to carry out checks on all gas appliances and issue a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate. We will forward your copy on to you.
At the end of the tenancy we will complete a final inspection of the property and make sure that the property is clean and in a satisfactory condition.
We can organise buildings and contents insurance if desired.
Our Accounts department will:
- Collect rent monthly in advance and chase any overdue rent, if necessary. The majority of tenants pay by standing order, ensuring the rent is paid the same day each month. We also have a facility for payment by Debit Card.
- Issue a monthly statement of rental incomings and outgoings.
- Pay any invoices for necessary repairs.
- Produce an end of tax year certificate for landlords living overseas.
