What does a LOCAL, INDEPENDENT agent mean to me?
- Do you worry about finding the right tenant? – We liaise with our landlords at every step of the tenant find process.
- Is the rent late? – We pay our landlords by direct bank transfer on the SAME DAY that the rent is received by our bank *Subject to weekends and bank holidays.
- Do you have to keep chasing for payment? – We have a state of the art computerised property management system that automatically produces the relevant rent chasing letter and prompt a call to a tenant who is 24 hours in arrears.
- Are you worried about how your property is being looked after? – We inspect each managed property every 3 months, we ensure that the tenancy is being managed correctly by the tenant and that all maintenance issues are reported and resolved in the shortest timescale possible.
- Have you had a bad experience with letting in the past? – Due to the nature of limited regulations within the lettings industry, a lot of agents do not hold a formal qualification achieved via the National Association Of Property Professional (NFoPP). Bishop & Company believe in doing things right and because of this all lettings staff possess a minimum of the Level 3 qualification in lettings and property management. The qualification is vital to ensure that any lettings issue can be resolved in the correct legal manner.
