Three things landlords ask
1. What if something needs fixing?
This seems to be one of the most frequently asked question in general by tenants, so in turn landlords want to know that we have all maintenance covered. And we do. All our tenants are aware at the start of their tenancy exactly who is responsible for what. Our Landlords agree timeframes for repairs, so should something occur, everyone knows the process and that it will be sorted asap!
2. How do you earn your fees?
As we only deal in lettings, we ensure that all our transactions are delivered smoothly in the first place, so each party knows exactly what to expect. We earn our fees by managing both the tenant and the landlord to ensure that all communication is kept open and transactions are completed as expected. What this delivers is happy tenants who stay and happy landlords who gain long time tenants in their property. An empty property or unhappy tenants are not options with Town And Country.
3. How much is my property worth?
The age old question of any landlord. 9/10 our answer will be, not as much as you'd like, if you want tenants that will stay as it's price v cost at the end of the day. We deliver transparency to all our landlords and expect the same in return. We offer a great selection of tenants who are respectable and fully referenced. Our average rental term is currently 43 months and in most cases the tenants upgrade through us. Why not contact us for a valuation and see how we work.
Landlord Referral Scheme
We offer a landlord referral scheme whereby any fully managed property that becomes tenanted as a direct referral from you we will pay you £100 as a thank you!
All the owner has to do is advise us that you referred them and once the tenant moves in we will forward to you! If it is a multi landlord it will be per property.
Your property letting management, sorted!
It’s simple. We want to work with you!
We pride ourselves on offering an exceptional property management service throughout the Brighton & Hove and surrounding areas.
With highly trained staff with a wealth of experience, you can be sure that if you choose to rent your property through Town and Country your asset will be cared for by a family business, who care and match the right tenant for your property.
Our promise is simple; we will only place people that we believe will make good tenants into our landlords’ own properties. Our tenant vetting process is stringent with a full credit history check, ID check, proof of income and references.
You can trust us to give you honest advice, from understanding the criteria required to let your property, through to tenant selection and property maintenance. We guide you through the process of letting your property and are there whenever you need us.
Ensuring that you have peace of mind, is our number one priority, and we really do manage your property so you don’t have to.
