The amount of cocksure are not the big owners who came for the lording it as the biggest cities and the best businessmen right after they lost an hour of my time to advise me for free, then realize that their current manager put the pants down and bent over a barrel ready from one who feels like a go , then turn and haggle my fees and say my expenses and say my expenses and say my expenses and say I`m exoensive is just offensive. The next problem I face is these types of landlords who gave me so kindly a hornet`s nest to sort normally, have just as clumsy tenant bastards and rude tenants. So now I`m dealing with a whole list of new problems, because the former agent or landlord did everything in the hope that the tenant would hide under rocks. Here is a very recent example; I took on 3 properties for an owner, I calculate 10% of pcm management, they say expensive, other agents make as low as 5% and yes, they really do, but how do you define what you get for 5%? I tell you, you get your rent collected, they give information from the tenant to say that there is a problem and that they charge you for extensions! If an agent offered good 5% management, it wouldn`t last 3 months. The volume of work and man hours in creating details, plans, photos, visits even outside of business hours, getting documents for company REFERencing, regular visits and unannounced calls from tenants and landlords, preparing a property and establishing a lease and then just after you think your loan to tenants and landlords have chased the crap out of you to do so , although they constantly move the destination poles they do it again or make a new You to make most of what you have done worthless. 10% in my opinion is not enough for a super smooth service, but that`s what`s just accepted. Before hitting agents and I am the first to admit that most are useless, take a long look in the mirror and ask yourself if you cut corners to save time and money? If your agent was so relaxed with your property and it exploded on your face, who do you want to call, scream and complain about? Free advice only if some of you do not know if you are creating a new lease, you must prove that you have served a copy of the security certificate to the EPC and gas to the tenant, or you will not be able to use a section 21 With the standard contract, a landlord may ask you to leave before the end of the contract if they want to sell the property. A rental agreement with a fixed end date gives both the owner and the tenant security. It indicates the exact day of the end of the lease. The advantage is that neither party is obliged to terminate the lease; it simply ends on the date indicated. In a fixed tenancy agreement, the lessor cannot increase the rent or change other terms of the tenancy agreement, unless he expressly reserves the right in the contract and the tenant accepts the changes.
