“We want to compliment Black Brick’s property management group. They have been fantastic, both when things are going along fine and when there is any spot of trouble. Our rented property has had some maintenance issues and we have been very pleased at the high level of service Black Brick’s team provided. They not only resolved the issues quickly and efficiently, but were an absolute pleasure to deal with”
Here are the answers to the questions that we’re often asked about property management…
A property management company manages the rental property and tenants so the landlord does not have to.
Black Brick provides its clients with a dedicated property manager, who negotiates with prospective tenants and arranges the tenant handover, inspects the property, coordinates maintenance, and liaises with the renter on any issues that arise throughout their tenancy.
Landlords use a property manager to be sure that their property and tenants are looked after, when they are unable or uninterested in doing so themselves.
A property management company handles the logistics of a rental property on behalf of the landlord.
Black Brick’s dedicated property managers have an in-depth knowledge of the London rental market, access to a network of trusted and cost-efficient contractors, and offer a range of bespoke services that can be tailored to the needs of the landlord and the property.
Property management services are valuable for overseas owners, trustees who are responsible for London properties, inexperienced landlords who want to manage their property efficiently, and any investor who would like to enjoy the benefits of their rental property without the time and stress.
Black Brick’s property managers will organise the valuation and letting of the property, providing advice on refurbishments to maximise its value and managing any work required before the property can be let. They will then negotiate with prospective tenants, check references and arrange tenant handovers.
They will act as the first point of call for renters throughout their tenancy, coordinate repairs and maintenance through a network of reliable contractors, and ensure the property is compliant with the tenancy agreement and insurance providers. They will also conduct inspections and report regularly to the landlord.
With property management, a landlord can be sure their property is running efficiently and their tenants are looked after.
