Letting a property in or around Norbury, Streatham, Croydon and Thornton Heath? We can help
Since 1994, the name James Alexander has been linked with quality lettings and management services in and around Norbury and the SW16 area; even today, many of our original landlords date back more than a decade, with one tenancy now exceeding 15 years!
We offer expert advice on letting and management as well as the many issues that can arise. We believe that the most important issue that is often overlooked is the quality of tenant.
This is why we have a thorough vetting process including a comprehensive referencing and ID check. We offer three different tiers or levels of service for letting and management.
1. Letting only service: With this option we will locate, negotiate and agree a tenant with you and then take up references including a credit score. Once the tenant has moved in, the responsibility for the collection of rent, general maintenance and any issues arising will fall to you to sort out.
2. Rent collection: Like an extension of the above, we will monitor and collect the rent, but inspections and maintenance issues will come either to you directly or to your appointed representative.
3. Full management: This is a further extension of the above, and here we will collect and monitor the rent, deal with any issues arising and inspect the property.
Lettings is a complex business and many new businesses come and say that they are experts when in fact they have little or no experience but as their sales business struggles, they need to try and get revenue quickly to stay afloat.
These companies quite often go bust with the very money that is often your rent or deposit at risk.
At James Alexander, as well as having the long term reputation, we also have fidelity bonding insurance, meaning that if we were to go out of business, any client money is fully protected.
