Advice for Landlords

Whether you own a large portfolio, or a single property, we have a range of rent collection hints and tips to help.


Clarify Your Agreements

Ensuring your contracts are clear and well written is essential in helping your tenants understand what’s expected. Have the core details clearly marked, include monthly rental amount, the rent due date, and any penalties that can arise for late payments. Trust between you and your tenant is paramount, it’s important to build a strong relationship where you and your tenant both understand the agreement.


Cooperation is Key

Build a good relationship with your tenants with open channels of communication. If your tenants’ circumstances change, it’s better for both parties if they discuss this with you directly. Perhaps they may need to alter their rent date, or perhaps agree to a payment plan. Working closely with your tenants can help give both sides peace of mind when you need it most, strengthening the landlord-tenant relationship.


Choose the Right Agent

Entrusting a reputable, reliable and trustworthy agent, who can take care of rent collection will save you a lot of time and, sometimes, worry. Try to find an agent who is a member of a recognised governing body such as ARLA or the NAEA, and who offers Client Money Protection, making sure your investment is in safe hands.
It’s important to work with a company you can trust to look after such an important task.
