How To Maintain & Manage Tenancies
More and more private landlords are
using letting agents like Plaza Estates, to manage tenancies on their behalf.
Agents fees are tax deductible.
Although most tenancies run smoothly,
there can be problems which need to be sorted out promptly and efficiently. A
managing agent is generally the best person to do this.
Most tenants are
foreign corporate tenants who are used to dealing with professionals, and need
to have immediate access to the landlord or his representative.
A management agent will not only handle any crisis but will also pay bills on
behalf of the landlord, check that the property is being looked after properly,
and ensure that there are no outstanding accounts for utilities such as gas,
electricity and telephones at the end of the tenancy.
In some cases we
suggest carrying out a mid-tenancy check to make sure that minor problems do not
turn into expensive ones.
