Platinum Rent Collection Service | lettingaproperty.com
We know that landlords want to avoid 'empty property' headaches. Simply take out our
Platinum Tenant Find
service and not only will we find you a tenant, we will guarantee your rent too - all for just £79 inc vat*
(I note on the link that the price has gone up to £99 inc. VAT. Perhaps my prior Registration entitled me to a discount?)
They have another deal, whereby you can advertise your property on:
for £59 in. VAT until it is let.
The £99 is basically an insurance policy against non payment of rent. They also charge £35 a month on top to collect the rent and chase it if it doesn't appear. But there's no management other than rent chasing. Our letting agent will arrange repairs and deal with any issues raised by the tenant and check the property on a 6 month basis to make sure the house is ok.
So we pay more than £35 a month but it's a fully managed service. Depends on how much you want to do yourself I guess. But after having done all the management myself in the past I now know what I prefer :-)
