For those who rent out properties, a big bugbear seems to be the management fees they have to pay for a lettings agent, and perhaps they look for the cheapest or best ‘deal’ on the market. But is this always the best approach to letting out a property? Management fees might actually be a good thing.
They’re like cable cars. They might make you a little bit nervous but they can take you to new heights. You see, paying us a management fee means we take care of maintenance, rental payments, finding a tenant and everything else you normally need to worry about. This way, while we take care of your most valuable possession, you can relax and enjoy the ride.
Why should you choose Your Move over other lettings agents?
Recent research by Your Move has found that 42% of landlords think it's most important to find tenants they can trust, and 26% think having tenants pay on time is crucial1. Our fees actually mean we work harder to find you the best tenant, to make sure you can get the best return on your investment, and that you avoid any void periods.
- We give regular communication and excellent service. Need proof? We are rated 5-stars on Trustpilot and here’s a happy landlord to tell you all about us:
We have just let our house through Your Move New Cross. Shanika and Emma were fantastic from start to finish, providing great advice about the market and getting the property ready to let. They got one offer for us and when questions arose around some of the information that the tenant was providing they correctly advised us to re-market. One week later we have 4 great tenants happily moved in and we don't have to worry about a vacant house over Christmas. Thank you to Shanika, Emma and the area manager, Iain, who was also a great help. I'd happily recommend Your Move to anyone letting in South East London. – Richard
