According to PrimeLocation, a full management service will typically cost landlords around 15% of the rental price. As letting agents don’t normally quote fees including VAT, that equates to a real fee of 18% of your rental income every year, even if your existing tenants remain in place. Does that scenario seem familiar to you? If you’ve often wondered how you can save on property management fees and retain a good level of service, then wonder no more. A new breed of letting agent is here, offering all the same services for much less.
Expect to save up to 40% on property management costs
Here at easyProperty, we’re calling time on overcharging landlords for the simple, reliable services they depend on. You still get the peace of mind from knowing there’s a dedicated, reliable and qualified property manager ready to handle any emergencies that may arise, but without the headache of high monthly fees, or unexpected extras. We’ve heard of agents charging hundreds of pounds just to change a lightbulb. We think that’s unfair, and we expect you do too. With easyProperty, we don’t have commission agreements with preferred suppliers, nor will we let simple maintenance tasks escalate into huge bills. Nothing goes ahead without your say so, and we are happy to use your tradespeople if you prefer.
Our stand-alone Property Management service comes with all the usual inclusions:
- Your own dedicated property manager
- 24 hour support
- coordination of repairs
- rent collection
- secure deposit handling
- key holding
- tenancy agreement (ARLA accredited AST)
- tenant referencing
- rental statements
The full service gives you complete peace of mind for a low monthly charge of just 3.6% inc VAT.
This is a stand-alone service – which means you can switch to us to manage your property with your existing tenants remaining in place – please check your contract with your existing agency if you have one. Find out more about our property management service and get in touch with our helpful team to discuss if you can switch.
If you need to find tenants
easyProperty offers tenant finding as a separate service, so you can choose exactly what you need, and not pay a penny more than necessary.
We’ll get your property listed on the major portals (Rightmove, Zoopla, Primelocation) from as little as £9.99 a week. Discover our standard pack.
But if you prefer a more traditional service, our Advanced pack may suit you better. For a simple one-off flat fee of £59 you’d receive:
- your property advertised on Rightmove, Zoopla, and PrimeLocation
- an eye-catching ‘To Let’ board erected for you
- management of tenant enquiries
- tenant referencing at no cost to the landlord
- arrangement of deposit protection (DPS)
- an ARLA-accredited tenancy agreement
There is no commission to be paid, and no mandatory extra fees. What’s more, the price includes VAT, so no need to factor in an extra 20% on top. There’s also a special offer giving you 6 months free property management when you choose this pack.
Once you do the sums, it’s easy to see why landlords are leaving the high street and heading to easyProperty’s low fixed fees in droves.
