Protecting landlords against loss of rental income is of primary importance to any reputable letting agent.
Over 67 per cent of landlords had experienced problems with rent arrears according to a survey by leading reference company HomeLet. Protecting landlords against loss of rental income is of primary importance to any reputable letting agent.
Hunters, one of the UK’s leading estate and letting agents, recently launched a new product range that offers complete peace of mind for concerned landlords in what is uncertain times.
Thorough tenant referencing is crucial to offer landlords the assurance they need that the rent will be paid and the property will be looked after. The reference is however only a snapshot in time, and should a tenant’s circumstances change, landlords can be left exposed and at risk of not being able to meet their own financial commitments.
Job security and long-term contracts are no longer to be taken for granted; savvy landlords recognise this and must plan accordingly against unexpected tenancy changes.
Carrie Alliston, Group Lettings Director for Hunters, said: “More and more landlords are choosing a Fully Managed service which, for Hunters landlords includes the ultimate protection product, Hunters Infinity.
“This guarantees that the rent will be paid, every month on a specific date, regardless of whether the tenant has paid or not, and includes up to £50,000 of legal costs for eviction process, should that ever be necessary.”
With so much noise and constant legislative changes to the lettings industry in the UK, Hunters have made it as easy for landlords to get the information they need; stay legally compliant and protected, while at the same time maximising their property investment to drive the best returns.
