3. Why would we use a management company, we have been managing our own property for years.
Many landlords manage their own properties. Some private landlords but processes in place and manage the property to a professional standard carrying out regular maintenance, routine inspections and maintain a professional relationship with their tenants and follow the RTA these landlords rarely encounter issues. The majority of landlords don’t do this and have been simply lucky enough to not have issues. If you are the former – well done, keep up the good work, if you are the latter – come and speak to us, we’d be happy to give some pointers and we’re always here should your luck run out.
4. We've heard that some companies charge administration fees, charge for renewing leases and for completing reports - do you do this?

5. Do you do casual letting?
We have a service for hand-on landlords who manage their own properties and would like to ‘recruit’ tenants. However we don’t simply find a tenant and hand them to the landlord, we think of this more as a recruitment service. In this way both the landlord and the tenant must meet, understand the relationship and make an informed choice based on this. We send out tenants to view the property and meet the landlord. If everyone is happy, we sign them up. This is Naked Letting and it can only be found at The Rental Bureau.
