10 reasons why landlords choose David Moore Lettings

10 reasons

1. Reduced void periods

Our landlords' average void periods have reduced from 7 days in a year to 5 days. We have achieved this by improving our marketing and attracting a larger pool of potential tenants. We have also managed to reduce the time between tenancies by carrying out pre-move out inspections to determine, and make early provision for, any remedial work necessary.

2. We pay rent when you expect it

By managing the rental payments on a daily basis and working closing with any tenants who have temporary financial difficulties, we are able to pay all of our landlords on the due date.

3. Our clients spread the word

80% of our new landlords choose us following recommendations from our existing landlords. Just take a look at our testimonials!

4. Trained team of professionals

Your property portfolio is important to you, so it is also important that the people you choose to manage your portfolio understand the law and comprehend what it takes to manage your asset. Every team member at David Moore Lettings is trained and experienced. We take the management of your property very seriously and invest in the team to ensure great service.

5. Regular visits

We visit your property around four weeks after your tenant moves in. Thereafter we visit approximately three times a year. You will receive written reports following our inspections.

6. Regular rent increases

This year we have typically increased our landlords' income by 3% with the agreement of their tenants. This has been achieved by providing a great service to tenants, which encourages them to want to stay on and look after your property.

7. Independently-held deposits

We register your tenants' deposit with the Deposit Protection Service (DPS), which will provide arbitration in the rare event that you have a disagreement with your tenant at the end of the tenancy. This saves potentially costly court fees.

8. A local independent agent

We are a small, friendly firm with an intimate knowledge of our area. We get to know our landlords on a personal level and that is why they tend to stay with us. The buck stops with us, so we aim to take great care of you and your property.

9. Constantly improving

Finding the right tenant is crucial to a successful tenancy and a key part of this process is tenant referencing. This year we are moving our referencing and contract processing to a company called "Goodlord". This will ensure that we are compliant with the latest legislation, documents will be able to be electronically signed and available to tenants and landlords. We feel that this will ensure that we continue to provide landlords with quality tenants.

10. Honesty and Confidence

We are members of the Residential Landlords Association (RLA) which means that we have signed up to a strict code of conduct. You can read the code at www.rla.org.uk. We are also members of the Property Redress Scheme, www.theprs.co.uk, whose aim is to resolve consumer complaints.
