Is self-management for me?
Are you prepared to be called at any time of the day or night by your tenant?
Will you be able to establish a professional relationship with your tenant and deliver the high level of attentive service they expect?
Do you have the flexibility to visit the property promptly when problems arise?
Do you have a good network of local contractors able to carry out maintenance work?
Do you have enough time to dedicate to your tenant?
If you’ve answered ‘no’ to any of the above, professional property management with Morgan's Residential Lettings could be an extremely worthwhile investment.
One decision you need to make early on is who will be dealing with your tenant and managing your property on a day-to-day basis. You have two options: your agent can look after everything for you, or you can take on the responsibility yourself.
Whichever route you choose, your tenant will expect a professional and prompt service, and for someone to be on call 24/7 for emergencies.
Asking Morgans Lettings to manage the property has a number of advantages. It keeps the relationship with your tenant at arm’s length and allows you to avoid the stress and hassle of dealing with midnight calls about burst pipes. You also have the reassurance of knowing that your property is being looked after by a professional team and maintained by their network of trusted contractors.
