Posted on Monday, March 11, 2019

A recent survey by property portal Zoopla showed that the five major issues concerning landlords were:  Finding suitable tenants, tenants looking after the property, tenants paying the rent on time, keeping up with increased regulations and future changes to regulations.

With over 150 pieces of legislation affecting the private rental sector and huge fines for non-compliance, it is vital that a landlords have the peace of mind of knowing that their properties are not only being let to maximise their investment return but are also being managed proactively and compliantly.

In the last year, Sansome & George have invested significantly in their property management operation and have a dedicated central team handling landlord accounts, The property management department also provides tenants with access to 24/7 emergency maintenance and repair services.

In addition, Sansome & George have also restructured their “frontline” lettings services across their network of seven offices under the direct leadership of Managing Director David Sansome and Director Roger Sansome. As a result, they have extended the marketing coverage provided and are ensuring that they continue to deliver the finest range of lettings services to their landlord clients and tenant customers.

In addition to delivering services to find suitable tenants, ensure a landlord’s property is looked after and make sure that the rent is paid on time, Sansome & George will also ensure that landlords maximise the yield on their investments and are provided with peace of mind in regards the myriad of legislation involved by proactively and positively keeping them informed and compliant.
