Inventories
All our inventories are carried out to the industry standard that details every room within the property and gardens if applicable. On check in we meet the new Tenant(s) at the property and go through the inventory room by room also taking meter readings and listing the keys released to the tenant. At time of check in we insist that the Tenant(s) sign and agree the inventory prior to us leaving the property therefore reducing the likelihood of any disputes at the end of the Tenancy.

Periodic Visits
Our Fully Inclusive Management Package includes periodic visits to the property once every 4 months, this enables us to check the condition, discuss any problems with the Tenant and deal promptly with any minor repairs before they become a bigger issue.

Following each visit we shall provide the Landlord with an inspection report and where necessary provide solutions to any issues that have arisen.

Repairs and Maintenance
We will deal with all necessary repairs and maintenance issues in an efficient manner, acting upon the Landlords instruction, we will seek solutions to any maintenance issues.

Ash, Percy & Jackson treat your property as if it is our own home.

Referencing
When applicants wish to apply for a Tenancy, they have to pass a referencing procedure.

We use Letsure, a professional nationwide referencing agency to carry out checks which include – electoral roll, credit history, employment reference, accountants reference if self-employed and previous landlord reference if applicable. We will not proceed with a tenancy unless the applicants have been approved. Unlike some agencies we don’t rely on verbal or written information given by applicants.

Absolute Rent Guarantee
We can offer this policy on successful completion of the applicants references. It includes cover for 100% of the monthly rent paid for up to a maximum of 6 months. It also includes legal expenses to cover eviction costs if your Tenant fails to pay the rent. The fee is payable in addition to the agreed fee.

Overseas Landlords
We produce an annual return for the Inland Revenue and send you a yearly statement showing rental income and expenditure. If you will be living or working abroad for a period in excess of 6 months, you will be required to complete a form online in order to avoid paying basic rate tax on your rental income, we will provide you with the relevant website information to apply for your HMRC exemption number.

Dilapidations Deposit
We will request a deposit from the Tenant equivalent to one and a half times the monthly rent which we will hold and register with The Dispute Service if instructed to do so. Any deposit held must be protected under the terms of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme.

Energy Performance Certificates
Any property where a new tenancy is being created requires an EPC. Which we can arrange to be carried out. Once done its valid for 10 Years.
