The Relaxed Landlord
23rd April 2019
About a year and a half ago, we sourced a property for a client. He didn’t require our lettings service, and chose to let and manage the property himself. However, a few months ago, he approached me. He wanted to go travelling for three months, for relaxation and adventure, and wondered if we could manage the property for him on a short term basis.
We offer a bespoke menu of lettings services, so we were happy to oblige. We spoke to the landlord to discuss the property, the tenant and his preferences, for example who he would like us to contact for any works, were there any current problems with the property or the tenant, could he foresee any problems occurring, his preferred method of contact whilst he is away etc. Basically, all the nitty-gritty in a quick 20 minute phone conversation.
Whilst the landlord was away we encountered a few minor property related issues, which we quickly dealt with. As agreed with the landlord we emailed him each time simply to inform him of the action we had taken.
The landlord returned after his travels, to a happy tenant and an intact property. He was so pleased that he had no hassle whilst he was away.
If you require short term management, or need any other lettings assistance to help you manage your property, please do get in touch.
