Managing Agents

Our Letting your Property blog continues with the subject Managing Agents. It may be worthwhile employing a managing agent. They can help you maximise your income and help select the right tenant. Most charge fees based on a percentage of the rent. They can help to resolve problems during and at the end of the tenancy. A managing agent may be particularly helpful if you do not live in the area or are unfamiliar with letting properties. If you do decide to use a managing agent, check whether they are a member of a nationally recognised association e.g.; Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) or qualified as a Surveyor or Valuer.
