FAQs

Our Guaranteed Rent Management Service is the hassle-free solution to renting your property. The agreed rental figure is paid into your nominated account on a fixed day every month, regardless of whether the property is tenanted or not. As a landlord you will never have to face a void period or worry about rent arrears ever again.

A member of our team will visit your property and conduct a free, no obligation market valuation to provide you with an accurate figure you can be sure to receive via our Guaranteed Rent Management Service. Within 24 hours Smartspace will provide you with a formal written offer.Once you are happy to proceed with the offer and the property meets the required minimum standards, we can begin the lease within 7 working days, subject to the necessary documentation being provided.

No fees are payable for letting your property via our Guaranteed Rent Management Service. As a landlord you are not liable to pay any commission, agency fees or any “hidden extras”. The rental figure offered is inclusive of our management service.

Our Guaranteed Rent Management Service is offered on a 2 – 5 year basis. Landlords tend to secure longer-term leases as the option of fixed rental income and minimal costs bring security, as well as creating a stable platform for accelerated property investments.

You will not have to lift a finger throughout the whole process. As we will be managing the property, we deal with all repair and non-repair related issues on your behalf. Our highly experienced property management team have the necessary skills to communicate, coordinate and respond to any issues that may arise. An efficient team of qualified tradesmen (both in-house and trusted subcontractors) are on hand to deal with any repairs 24 hours 7 days a week.

A property manager will inspect your property every 4 weeks. Regular visits are a must to ensure the property is being well kept, as well as advising the occupant on how to best maintain the property.

Rent is paid directly into your nominated bank account via BACS on the same day of every month. You will never experience a late payment again.

As a landlord you are required to provide the following:

  • Gas Safety Certificate
  • Energy Performance Certificate
  • NICEIC Certificate (Electrical Installation Certificate)
  • Proof of Ownership
  • Buildings Insurance Policy

We can make life that much easier by sending a qualified engineer to the property within 24 hours, to assist in providing any of the required certification.

Please contact us for further information.

In most cases we require the property to be unfurnished; however a cooker, curtains and floor coverings must be provided. Please refer to our property standards brochure for further information.

We can often start our agreement within 7 days of the initial contact, we act as quickly as possible in order to minimise any potential void period.
