plus Rent Collection Service

Our rent collection service is designed for the Landlord that either lives or has family close to the property and wants to do any maintenance themselves without wanting the financial risk that tenants may provide.

As part of this service we will:

  • produce property details with digital photographs, room measurements and a floor plan representation.
  • advertise the property extensively on the internet via all the large property portals as well as on this web site that benefits from Pay Per Click advertsing and extensive search engine optimisation (SEO).
  • telephone, text and email details to our mailing list of prospective tenants.
  • interview prospective tenants and accompany all viewings to the property.
  • arrange tenancy agreements for signing.
  • arrange EPC reports and Gas Safe Certificates where applicable.
  • we offer tenants, introduced via Greenaway Residential Lettings Agents, home contents insurance that covers all furniture and effects within the property regardless of ownership.
  • arrange referencing for prospective tenants with an independent referencing agency.
  • arrange for meter readings and annual gas checks.
  • unless advised otherwise register the deposit with the Deposit Protection Service (DPS)
  • collect the rent paid on a monthly basis.
  • provide the landlord with a monthly statement and pay the balance to a nominated account via internet banking.
  • when required submit 7, 14, 21 & 28 day late rent notices.
  • arrange inspections to be carried out by Greenaway Residential Lettings Agents at the beginning, mid tenancy and at the end of the tenancy.
  • make visits to ensure the property is secure and, where necessary, make arrangements for any maintenance if a managed property is empty for a time between tenants.
  • negotiate rent increases and arrange for tenancy renewals.
  • submit claims and evidence to DPS at the end of the tenancy if necessary.

Our standard rent Collection Fee is 15% (12.5% + VAT) of the rent receivable under the Tenancy Agreements and any extensions thereto, paid monthly by way of deduction from the monthly rent received.
