Our most successful landlords treat buy-to-let as a longer-term investment and their tenants as valued customers. Jeremy Leaf & Co. have been offering a proactive, professional management service to landlords and tenants since 1979. Our reputation has always been more important than earning commission so it is not surprising that nearly all our new landlords are recommended. So what else do we do?
Jeremy Leaf & Co. offer client money protection and professional indemnity insurance unlike many other agents – so both landlords’ and tenants’ financial interests are fully protected.
We pride ourselves on the importance of negotiating with landlords and tenants to resolve any disputes which may arise.
Services offered to landlords include let only, rent collection and/or full management service.
We can still advise ‘let only’ landlords on legal responsibilities and comparable rents.
Tenancy agreements are prepared in accordance with ARLA/RICS recommendations and include online signatures for speed and convenience.
We carry out strict tenant referencing and Right to Rent checks to reduce the risk of problems arising and register tenants’ deposits in a Government-approved scheme.
We serve appropriate notices to comply with possession obligations; fire/smoke regulations, arrange energy performance certificates (EPCs) gas safety inspections, electrical/portable appliance testing (PAT), independent inventories etc.
If work is required to the property, we don’t just instruct builders who charge high call-out rates, we will often inspect the property ourselves to establish whether a more cost-effective solution can be found.
We advertise for tenants via our extensive database and major property portals such as Rightmove, Zoopla and Primelocation.
Our commission for managed properties can be deducted monthly rather than a year in advance.
For added peace of mind, Jeremy Leaf & Co. are members of ARLA, RICS, NALS, SAFE AGENT, Ombudsman Services: Property and also subscribe to the Code of Practice for Lettings Agents:
