Our Property Management team at Abode are here to look after your investment and ensure that your experience is as stress free as possible. Leave it to us.
Our Property Management team has been in place now for ten years and we have hundreds of Landlords who depend on our comprehensive management service for the day to day running of their properties. Many of our satisfied Landlords have been with us since the beginning with many more joining us after learning about our unrivalled level of customer service.
So Why Abode?
A Dedicated Property Manager
When you instruct Abode to manage your property you will work directly with a Property Manager who will be your main point of contact. They will get to know you, your property and understand how best to meet your needs and that of your tenants.
No Upfront Fees
All our Landlords fees are billed on a monthly basis, so unlike most other agents there are no upfront costs. Our commission is only deducted when you receive your monthly rent.
We will ensure that your property complies with all the latest regulations affecting the rental market. We can organise any necessary certification that may be required, such as an Energy Performance, Gas Safety or Electrical Certificate, as well as check any potential tenants' right to rent and advise you to ensure that your property has a licence to rent from the local council (if required), giving you complete peace of mind.
Photographic Property Inspections
Abode will try to carry out between three and four photographic Property Inspections per year. This is to assess how the property is being maintained, the cleanliness and if there is any condensation or maintenance issues that may need to address. This comprehensive report will be emailed to you after each visit.
When your property becomes available to rent, we will proactively find new tenants willing to pay the optimum rent as quickly as possible to minimise the risk of a void period occurring between tenancies. We will also handle all the necessary paperwork, from rigorous reference checks, preparation of new tenancy agreements, inventory checks at the beginning and end of a tenancy, deposit registration and ongoing rent collection.
When instructing Abode on a Rent collection or a Fully Managed Service we can guarantee your rental income and Legal Costs up to Â£10,000 throughout the tenancy. Please speak to our Lettings Team for more details and T&Câ€™s.
Keep up to date with our 24/7 dashboard MyPropertyFile. Check the status of your new tenancy, an outstanding maintenance job, your certifications, property inspections or your rental statements. No more lost paperwork - everything you need is in one handy place.
Emergency Phone Line
At Abode, should there be an emergency, we provide all of our tenants with a 24 hour emergency contact. Our approved contractor will access if the problem is deemed an emergency before attending.
Abode do not hold funds on account for any works during the tenancy. All of our contractors work on a 30 day payment plan. This ensures the quality of the works carried out and helps our Landlords to manage their cash flow more effectively.
Our Tenant Service
At Abode, we understand that if the tenant is happy with how we manage the property then generally they will stay longer and look after the property is if it were their own. We have many long standing tenants that only want to deal with us due to the attentive service they received throughout their tenancy. A happy tenant is a good tenant.
