Maximising the return on your investment
The first step to maximising your investment is to regularise leasing arrangements and ensure all rental payments from tenants remain current and that outgoings are up to date.
We ensure the regular collection of operating expense contributions from tenants, with periodic wash-ups where the actual costs are compared to the budgeted costs, and any shortfall recovered. Our normal practice is to receive all rentals and outgoings into our trust account to enable us to meet all property expenses. All items of non-standard expenditure are referred to the Landlord for prior approval (if required) before work is commenced.
Reviews and rights of renewal
Our diary system automatically flags rent reviews and renewal dates as well as other important milestones such as insurance renewal dates. We complete the whole process from notifying the tenant and liaising with valuers when relevant through to documentation completion.
The net rental collections are remitted to the Landlord at this time. Our diary system automatically highlights dates of all milestones such as rent reviews, expiries and renewals to ensure these are expeditiously actioned, along with compliance and insurance renewals.
Should replacement of a tenant prove necessary, or a lease be assigned, we liaise with local Agents and assist with lease negotiation, together with undertaking due diligence and execution of documents. We institute recovery steps on your behalf in the event of any missed payments and keep you fully updated, ensuring the recovery process is as smooth and stress-free as possible.
