Being a DIY landlord has never been more time consuming, expensive and subject to continuously increasing legislation. Unless you are prepared to be on call 24/7, are fully up-to-date with letting rules and regulations, have your own marketing department and maintenance team on hand, keeping on top of your legal responsibilities whilst still enjoying a healthy return on your investment is a real challenge.
That’s why more and more landlords turn to Strats to keep their rental properties and finances in great shape.
From Let Only to Fully Managed Portfolios, we have a contract that is just right for you, at a price that keeps both your tenants and your wallet happy.
With our own in-house maintenance department, we keep our landlords costs incredibly low.
Our full maintenance contracts mean that for a fixed fee, landlords can avoid calling out expensive tradesmen, or find themselves facing an unexpected hefty bill, so our landlords can relax, safe in the knowledge that our team is taking care of both their properties and their tenants.
From end of term deep cleans, to complete refurbishments, gas safety certification to changing a lightbulb, our full maintenance contracts offer the perfect solution for landlords who want to save time, money and safeguard their investments.
