This gives us the advantage of being able to market your property quicker than any other agent; our website automatically feeds to all our property portals including rightmove.co.uk & propertyfinder.com. SMS messaging and Email details of your property are sent out to all our registered buyers.

Regular Updates

At Homeland Estates we believe that communication is vital and our sales and lettings team is highly geared towards client updates regarding viewings and potential clients.

Property Management

We differ from other agents who usually combine Sales and Lettings, we only offer a dedicated letting service and have done since 1991, with staff who understands the Tenants and Landlords requirements.

Full Management Service

After the tenant has moved in we conduct our initial property inspection within the first three weeks. At this stage we are able to resolve any teething problems the tenant may have and see at first hand how they are conducting the tenancy. You will receive written confirmation of this visit and its outcome. We aim to undertake a minimum of 3 property inspections each year, however, if there are issues or concerns these will be conducted more often.

The tenant is given access to a 24 hour emergency telephone line should there be serious issues that arise out of working hours. We organise all gas and electrical checks on the property unless we have received written instructions to the contrary. Your rent will be collected and paid via the BACS banking system, which will normally be completed within five working days of receiving cleared funds from the tenant. Any costs incurred for work on the property will be deducted from your rental payment and will reflect on the statements we send.

Tenant find only service

After the tenant has moved in we forward all paperwork and relevant monies to you and notify the utility suppliers and local authority of the new occupants. From this point onwards you are responsible for the property and the tenancy. We are happy to provide new contracts after the initial period has expired; alternately if the tenant is not staying at the property we can commence the search for a new tenant on your behalf.h

Rent Collection Only Service

As per our “tenant find only service” but we collect the rent and pay it via the BACS payment service. Any works or property inspections are undertaken by the landlord, however, only rent chasing will be our responsibility.

Rent Guarantee Scheme

We offer rent guarantee schemes, along with legal expenses, identify theft assistance.
