Letting Agent TorranceNovember 27, 2015 5:02 pm
As a landlord, there are various considerations you face when it comes to setting up a property. One of those is whether to use a letting agent in Torrance for a full or partial service. For some people, using a letting agent may seem an unnecessary expense but when you look at the services they can provide, they can actually save you money in the long run.
For starters, letting agents offer a basic package whereby they can find you a tenant. This will involve advertising the property and interviewing the potential tenants. It will also incorporate finding their references, taking a deposit and usually the first month’s rent as well as helping draw up the tenancy agreement.
If you require a more comprehensive service, they can effectively run the property for you.
They can handle regular inspections, schedule maintenance or organise repairs and deal with the tenant’s queries. This can save you time and money, especially if you don’t live close to the property and would have to travel there to deal with these issues.
Another reason a letting agent can be worth every penny is if there are problems with the tenants. It can happen to anyone, no matter how good the checked put in place and if you need to evict a tenant, a letting agent can help you complete the processes correctly and legally.
