Landlords

LETTINGS MANAGEMENT

Choosing your letting agent is an important decision. Our strategy has delivered value growth for every let.

We work with landlords who are too busy with their lives. We save their precious time to do other things that they love to do.

The landlords who are not living locally take advantage of our services as they are unable to conduct viewings, to oversee property refurbishment, maintenance or take meter readings when a tenant moves in or out of a property. We arrange gas certificates, electrical certificates and EPC, take care of the council tax, water and energy notifications and keep all records in one place. We take the stress out of being a landlord.

HOLIDAY LETTINGS

A holiday let sounds as an interesting and lucrative prospect to most buy to let investors. You might save on management fees when doing it yourself, however, running a holiday let day-to-day can be too complicated and time consuming. If you do not live close by to your holiday rental, running everything yourself means you need to put in the hours during your evenings and weekends too.

You are less likely to know if any items need replacing or fixing and the general condition of your property. You must set aside a time for arranging cleaning, clean bed linen and towels, maintenance issues, frequent guest communication, guest check-in, check-out, nightly rate optimisation and to make sure that you are getting paid correctly. If you hire people to help you out with the cleaning or gardening, it also means that you must have the appropriate level of liability insurance in place to cover your staff under your watch and your guests.

SPM can do all this hard work for you and increase your revenue from your holiday let investment. If you are looking to secure highest possible income from your property hands free, then our wide range of services under one roof will be perfect for you.

Business Rates or Council Tax?
Any property that is used for commercial purposes might need to be rated for business rates purposes. If your holiday home in England is being marketed to let for 140 days or more per financial year it might be entitled to a small business rate relief. If the property is let for 139 days or less, then the property is subject to a council tax band. If your property’s rateable value is £12,000 or less, you can get 100% off your bill.
We We can help you to find out what is rateable value of your property and calculate your small business rate relief. With SPM earn money, save time. .

AST (Assured Shorthold Tenancy) Letting
When speaking to the landlords we have found that some traditional letting agents charge sky-rocket high commission rates but underperform. They tend to look after the clients with large portfolios better and neglect smaller landlords. At SPM every client matters to us. We give our mobile number to our clients, tenants, or guests, so we are always connected should they have any enquiry.
Has any of your agent ever booked a viewing at 10 PM? Well, we have. We do not want to miss any opportunity. Most of perspective tenants have a fulltime job and can only book a viewing outside office hours. At SPM it is not a problem. Stay legal. We constantly update ourselves with the latest legislation, so you do not have to. We are members or NRLA (National Residential Landlords Association) and have unlimited access to legal advice.
