Letting OnlyFixed annual management fee of 8% of the annual rental achieved. This is chargeable monthly,
thus spreading the cost.
PDF Estates manages all aspects of letting your property out.
We will conduct a property valuation, which is used to determine likely and possible rental values.
This figure is based on similar properties, in the same area, and compared to the overall condition
of your property. We cannot stress enough how important it is that this valuation is correct and reasonable.
Too low means that you are missing out on potential rental yield, while too high a figure means
that you are likely to find it difficult to fill the property with quality tenants, who will ultimately
look after your properties and want to remain, as long as possible.
We professionally market your properties on the following popular online portals: Zoopla,
Rightmove and OpenRent Ltd, accompanied by quality photos to maximise all marketing initiatives.
All marketing material is written up on your behalf, in addition to sourcing all potential
quality tenants for you. Once prospective tenants have been found, through our property management
service, we will accompany tenants to the property, show them around, and help ensure that you
acquire the most suitable tenants in your properties.
To further ensure that you obtain good quality tenants, we conduct comprehensive credit checks and
reference checks on all applicants, before issuing legal documentation and securing the tenant’s signature.
Furthermore, we will collect tenants’ deposits and the first months rent as part of the letting only
property management service.
Letting and Rent Collection ServiceFixed annual management fee of 9% of the annual rental achieved. This is chargeable monthly, thus spreading the cost.
Letting and rent collection includes all the same services as letting only, but in addition to this,
we also deal with the ongoing management and collection of rent monies due from tenants. This means
that we will collect the rent from all tenants monthly, unless contractually agreed otherwise, as
instructed by our landlord clients, at the outset of their tenancies.
We find that the majority of landlords, especially first-time landlords, are often put off by the prospect
of having to collect rent from their tenants, especially when rent payments are late. As experienced landlords,
we have dealt with rent collection for years, and we assist with timely rent payments, while ensuring a
positive relationship is maintained with tenants, throughout the duration of their tenancy.
Full Property Management ServiceFixed annual management fee of 10% of the annual rental achieved. This is chargeable monthly, thus spreading the cost.
Our full property management service includes everything in both our letting and rent collection services,
plus all day-to-day management, associated with the letting and hands-on responsibility of your properties.
We check quality tenants successfully into properties that we manage on your behalf. We arrange and take
all meter readings, conduct at least, half-yearly property inspections to ensure that your tenants are
keeping your properties in good order. We also complete final tenancy checks, comparing everything to
the inventory checklists that are completed at the beginning of our tenancies.
As well as collecting rent and dealing with rent issues, PDF Estates will also deal with all
day-to-day enquiries received from your tenants. We ensure maintenance issues are dealt with promptly
and we take on the responsibility of any rare tenant disputes and any landlord queries that might crop up.
Services can be customised according to your precise needs, and can incorporate any of the following:
- Deposit Protection
- Property Inventories
- Professional Cleaning
- Ongoing Safety Checks
At PDF Estates, we protect your welfare, as well as the welfare of your tenants. Our aim is to always
keep all parties happy, thus resulting in longer term tenancies, with less rental void. It also means fewer
disputes to resolve, as happy tenants are more likely to pay their rent on time, every month, and keep our
properties in very good condition.PDF Estates - Excellent and Affordable Property Management throughout London and the Home Counties including,
