Property Management

A team of people, headed by McCoy, is the dedicated interface between landlord and tenant.
The team members collect the rent, which is a big relief for the landlord, but that's just the start.
When the tenancy is up for renewal, they work with landlord and tenant to agree terms before drawing up a renewal agreement. Then, at the end of the tenancy, they organise the inventory check out and liaise with both parties with the aim of getting the deposit released as quickly as possible.
The team is always available for a landlord who needs advice on a range of issues: rental increases, dilapidations (deductions from the deposit) and decorative issues. For the latter, a chat with McCoy department may be recommended.
The team also trouble shoots. "What if a boiler doesn't work in mid winter or if the windows don't open in mid summer? It's a horror story for the tenants so we source cost effective and trustworthy contractors and ensure they fix the problem quickly.
Part of the team's job is to keep the tenants happy but also to make sure they look after the property.

EPCs and Gas Certificates

Energy Performance Certificates, or EPCs, are set to be available to all new tenants from October 1st 2008. Outlining the energy efficiency rating and the environmental impact rating of a property, potential landlords will be able to gain access to both the estimated running costs of a property, the carbon footprint created by the property and also show any recommendations that could be made to improve the energy efficiency of a property. The rating offered by the EPC will range from A to G, where A is very efficient and G is very inefficient, with the typical rating for a home being either D or E. These simple ratings will allow potential tenants to compare homes of interest to gain an insight into the difference in potential running costs.
