Landlords

At Gusterson Palmer & James we offer a tailored package of services to meet the Landlords requirements.

Full Management

This is our most popular service, which includes everything our marketing campaign provides in finding you a suitable tenant.

Once the tenant has been professionally qualified by an independent referencing agency, our service will include the setting up of a new ARLA approved tenancy agreement, registering the tenants deposit, making sure you, the landlord, are compliant with all legal requirements and creating a property inventory.

As well as collecting the rent we carry out periodic visits to ensure your property is being kept in good order and deal with agreed ongoing maintenance either through one of our trusted contractors or via your appointed representative.

On placing a new tenant in the property, our competitive agent finder fee would be charged at 50% of the first months rent plus VAT.

For new landlords we have an attractive offer for our full management fee of 5% + vat for the first half of the initial tenancy term followed subsequently at just 9%+ vat on the monthly rent collected.

Multiple Properties to Let?

We have a number of landlord clients who enjoy a portfolio of properties we fully manage. At Gusterson Palmer & James we welcome new landlords with multiple properties and are happy to offer a discounted management charge dependant on the number of properties involved.

Let Only

This service enjoys all of the same excellent marketing, service and preparation in finding and placing a new tenant as our full management service but once the tenant is in place all ongoing matters are then dealt with by you the landlord. Our Let Only Fee is offered at a single charge of 75% of the first months rent plus VAT.

Tenancy Agreement Only

This service provides for the creation of an ARLA approved tenancy agreement to be professionally drawn up at a standard fixed cost of just £150.00 plus VAT. As members of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme we use the approved ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents) agreement to create an Assured Shorthold Tenancy, which can only be used if the deposit holder is a member of The Dispute Service. Possession can be gained at the end of the fixed term (unless special criteria emerge during the tenancy) by the landlord giving 2 calendar months notice.
