Why switch to professional property management now?

 
 
 
 
  12 Aug 2019

If you are an existing landlord or are considering letting out a property you own, managing it yourself might seem a good way to save a few pounds. It can often, however, be a false economy, lead to costly mistakes or compromise your free time.

Using a professional property manager gives landlords ultimate reassurance, especially against the backdrop of an ever-changing industry that is increasingly compliance led. Landlords using a property manager always knows the t’s are crossed, the i’s are dotted and every box is ticked – saving sleepless nights and disturbed days.

Keeping it legal

For many people, letting out a property they own is an exercise run alongside a busy work and family life. Keeping up with and implementing the estimated 140 rules and regulations can be quite a challenge, especially as new laws are introduced on a regular basis. Take your eye off the ball and you could, unintentionally, be running an illegal let. The consequences can be dire – hefty fines and even imprisonment.

It’s a worrying thought borne out in recent research by Market Financial Solutions, which found that landlords were not always aware of their legal responsibilities and sometimes find it hard to stay up-to-date:

Its research showed:

  • 80% of landlords admitted they struggle to keep up with constant regulation changes
  • 30% did not understand the changes to House in Multiple Occupation licensing
  • 28% were not aware of the proposed abolition of Section 21
  • 27% are uncertain about the tenant fees ban
  • 19% say they understand the new tenant act but are unsure how it will affect them

The Jezzards team are industry experts who are aware of every lettings law and implement these on behalf of landlords, ensuring that every let we manage is legally sound.

DND – let us be the point-of-contact

Managing a property can be a 24/7 job. If a water pipe bursts at 3am, self-managing landlords can expect a call – whether they’re just about to board a plane or enter a crucial meeting. Using Jezzards’ full property management service relieves this burden as we become the tenant’s point-of-contact, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. As well as sending a reliable contractor at a fair price, we also keep a transparent, accurate paper trail than can prove crucial at the end of the tenancy.

The Jezzards full property management service includes:

  • Finding the right tenant for your property, including advertising, third party referencing and guaranteeing your rent is paid on time
  • Free emergency assist cover – no costly call outs or parts
  • Thorough inspections of the property, with an in-depth inspection report carried out by your dedicated property manager
  • Overseeing planned and emergency maintenance, to ensure it is completed promptly and professionally

Enjoying the rewards without the hard work

The Jezzards professional property management service offers a hands-free investment for those looking for a pension or stocks/shares alternative. Consider us the equivalent of a top hedge fund manager – nurturing your asset, maximising value and endeavouring to increase returns.

Jezzards will collect the rent, chase tenants if they are in arrears, keep an eye of the physical condition of the buy-to-let, advise on how to add value to the property and devise a rent schedule that keeps what you charge in line with rent trends. the open dialogue with our landlords means they can contact us any time for an up-to-date property synopsis or to request a free valuation.

Professional property management allows people to get on with their lives while a property expert follows lettings law, looks after tenants and protects the asset.  Contact us today to find out more about our property management service.

What our clients say about us

  • " I've dealt with some horrible agencies whilst renting in the past but I am glad we had Jezzards as our last. Didn't know that someone so professional and understanding and true to it's word existed in the business. I locked myself out once and they were there in  20 mins to assist. Heating stopped in the night and their out of hours assistance helped sort us out. Any problems or issues, were very promptly and effectively dealt with...I didn't even have to chase them. Our exit was quick, refunds took some time due to overlooked issues, which Victoria Jezzard looked into personally, and all done in 3 days. Dorathy was our handler and she was ace!! "
