A service designed for landlords
A new scheme is being launched to help Wychavon residents access privately rented accommodation but also to provide Landlords more security with the letting of their property. We understand the barriers some residents have in accessing the private rented sector, as well as the issues landlords face when the tenancy has not been successful. We aim negate these problems by matching the most suitable tenant to the property and offering a robust service throughout the tenancy to Landlords.
“I am a landlord with several rental properties in Wychavon, and have worked with the Housing Needs department to place tenants since 2005, during which time we have placed upwards of 30 tenants.
In my opinion they do a very good job of balancing the tenants’ needs with the landlords’ needs, and the fact that I continue to regard them as my first option when a vacancy occurs is a clear indication that I am very satisfied with the service they provide.
We operate together in a spirit of cooperation, and to summarise the two main points which I regard as important from a landlord’s perspective, they go to some lengths to make sure that the tenant is suitable for the particular property and the surrounding area, and also that they can afford the rent in the long term, providing additional financial support where appropriate.
The Wychavon Housing Needs Team, in my opinion, provides an effective, responsive, pragmatic, cost effective range of services for landlords.“
We offer Landlord’s three levels of service:
Matching a tenant
This is a free service which involves us finding potential tenants suitable for a particular property who are then referred to the landlord. Wychmove liaises with the landlord for the prospective tenants to view the property and the landlord will make the final selection based on information provided by Wychmove.
Wychmove will source a tenant suited to the landlord’s requirement for their property and complete an inspection to ensure the property is legally compliant. The service will include, marketing the property via our web site, Council contact centres and social media, so a range of customers can express an interest. All necessary paper work will be drawn up on behalf of the landlord, such as tenancy agreement, inventory schedules and photographs. An exit inspection will also be carried out at the end of the tenancy which is included in our competitive fees for this service.
This service will include the same package as the assisted let but will include the day to day management of the property, quarterly inspections and be the point of contact for any tenancy issues for either the tenant or landlord. This package will provide a quality management service for landlords and the experience of a knowledgeable and friendly team who can react and resolve issues effectively and efficiently. Again we aim to be competitive with the fees that we charge for this service.
