understands that a
Landlord’s objective is to rent
their property to suitable
tenants without incurring
costly vacancy periods at the
highest achievable rent.
Lansdowne Property makes this possible by meeting you and assessing your property. Under your instruction we will commence advertising and include the property in our listings to our existing client base. An experienced member of staff will show the property (all staff work flexible schedules) and contact you with interested tenant information or an update on market activity. We realise that a vacant property is lost revenue so if suitable tenants are not forthcoming we will review viewer feedback with you and amend conditions as necessary to progress without delay. We verify references before deposits are taken. Favourable previous landlord references and work references are absolutely essential. Prospective Tenant details may be discussed with you as per your preference.
Landlords are advised to read the Residential Tenancies Act 2004 to 2016 as all recent residential leases should reflect this legislation. We always meet new tenants at the property on their move in date to sign the leases and hand over keys. This affords us the opportunity to show new tenants around, check inventory, deal with any move in issues and get up to date meter readings etc. It is standard practice for tenants to pay one month’s rent as a deposit and one month’s rent in advance. The letting fee will be deducted from the monies paid by the tenant and the balance may be paid direct to your bank by bank transfer or as directed by you. We will meet or send you your leases including completed RTB form* and paperwork by post as instructed. We will assist tenants in setting up a standing order for rent payments direct to your account but we advise that you check rental payment each month.
Maintaining your property requires good management. In circumstances where Landlords do not wish to manage their property themselves, we provide a very professional service to include all queries from tenants, inspections, appliance break down, leaks, refurbishment, etc. Our network of reliable contractors react quickly to address any issues should they occur throughout the Tenancy. We also look after the collection of rent and deal with the financial transactions related to the property, as well as providing financial reports for your end of year accounts.

* All tenancies must be registered with the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB)
