Property Management

At Harry Albert Lettings & Estates, your property is our priority, even on Sundays, bank holidays and on Christmas day! We’re experts in our local market and we’re known for our ability to maximise the income earned from your property through our range of services as well as our super-fair fees. Our landlord and property investor clients enjoy an income even during void periods using our Short Term Accommodation Management Service when they instruct us to let and manage their property.

Expert Marketing &
Carefully Selected Tenants

We use a proven marketing strategy to position your property in front of thousands of potential tenants. This includes expert listing creation, advertising through our website, property portals, classified ads, social media and offline media. We pride ourselves on our ability to thoroughly reference, background and select the right tenants the first time, every time. We do this through our range of partners and our own due diligence. We fully reference, background, credit and affordability check your tenants and insist on guarantors where necessary. We also carry out right to rent checks. We construct the tenancy agreement, check the tenant in and we can also carry out an inventory report.

Fully Managed
Property Services

Our full property management service gives you peace of mind with our regular inspections, deposit collection and registration, rent collection, repairs and maintenance and more. We also deal with tenant liaison and more! When it gets near to the end of the tenancy agreement, we liaise with the tenant to find out if they want to renew their contract or move out, in which case we will either renew the tenancy (we don’t charge renewal fees) or remarket the property accordingly, we will also carry out an end of tenancy inspection and raise any deposit disputes where necessary. For more information on what’s included in our Full Property Management Service navigate to our How to Rent section of our website.

No Hidden Fees &
No Upfront Charges

We’re confident we’ll let your property in a timely manner and we’re willing to put our money where our mouth is. We don’t charge any hidden or upfront fees. All of our letting and management fees and any costs incurred for repairs to your property are deducted from the rent paid by the tenants where possible. Sometimes, when you instruct an agent to let and manage your property in Leicester, you’ll often be quoted a price and when the tenant moves in, the remaining balance of the first month’s rent is often much lower than you expect. We will always seek your permission to carry out works, make purchases, etc except for when there is a critical emergency and we are unable to contact you.

A New Way To Value Rent

We realise you’re wondering what the Tenant Fees Ban means for you and your investment. The ban caps the amount of deposit you can take to a maximum of five weeks and this means landlords are expected to shoulder more risk for a lower reward. On top of this, vetting tenants is becoming harder as referencing fees are banned! letting agencies up and down the country are increasing their landlord fees paid for managing your property but not us. Instead, we’ve developed a NEW way to value rent based on Risk Score. Risk Score is a scoring system much like a credit score, only instead of dictating what credit is available to consumers and the rates they’ll pay, the Risk Score dictates what sort of homes are available to tenants and the amount of rent that they pay; the higher their risk, the lower their chances of securing our high quality homes and the more rent they’ll pay to offset and balance the risk you take on resulting in increased rewards and incentive for landlords to let to lower quality tenants!

We are here to protect your return on investment, and that’s why we’ve also developed a new way to allow you to maintain your return on investment without leaving either of us out of pocket! So, if you’re worried about what the tenant fee ban means for you, don’t! Just give us a call on 0116 321 4970

Legislation and Regulatory Changes in the PRS

The private rented sector (PRS) is going through many changes with more being announced each week. Harry Albert Lettings & Estates invests heavily in education and training to ensure we’re in the best place to provide advice and guidance, keeping you on top of the changes and ensuring your compliance. We have access to numerous legal resources, including a legal advice helpline and relationships with fantastic property law experts and eviction specialists giving you total peace of mind.

Overseas Investors/Non-Resident Landlords

If you live abroad for 6 months or more per year, you’re classed as a ‘non-resident landlord’ by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) – even if you’re a UK resident for tax purposes.

Our expert lettings and property management team are experienced in dealing with Overseas investors and Non-Resident Landlords, we can walk you through the process and educate you on your obligations and assist you in completing the NRL1i form (so you can pay tax yearly via self-assessment, rather than us having to deduct tax from rent received and pay your tax for you each quarter). Whether you’re an individual, company or trust, our trusted property tax and law experts will be happy to give advice and guidance on how best to maximise your returns and achieve your investment goals in the UK. Just email us on info@harryalbertgroup.co.uk and let us know your requirements and we will be happy to help!
