AST Management & Admin Support
One of the most critical tasks when letting a property, is to ensure that your tenancy agreement and supporting documentation are compliant with the latest legislation and issued to your tenant in the correct manner.
Using modern day technology, fully endorsed by the courts, enables AgentSmart to take the headache out of this essential and time consuming process allowing you and your staff to concentrate on doing what you do best, growing your business. This service is bespoke to you and is fully adaptable to fit your specific requirements.
As the term of your tenancies progress, you may encounter certain issues that require assistance on a legal level.
Whether this be arrears, non-accidental damage, tenancy breach or any other amendments to existing tenancies AgentSmart can help by initially offering advice and a mediation service. However repeated late payments or non-payment of rent, non-accidental damage to the property, or other activities deemed to be in breach of the tenancy agreement, may all require legal action to resolve them satisfactorily. In the first instance if communication has broken down, we can help by offering a mediation service. However if circumstances persist, AgentSmart can help you with the serving of the correct legal notices and any follow-up communication necessary with the tenant(s).

Rent Chasing & Debt Recovery
Has your tenant fallen into rent arrears? Are they ignoring your attempts to contact them? Why not let AgentSmart step in as early as 10 days in arrears and assist you in getting your tenant back on track.
Unfortunately there are occasions when all efforts fail and legal proceedings are required (see legal services). Once vacant possession is obtained, using expert tracing services and debt recovery action we can still peruse your ex-tenant for all outstanding monies due to rent arrears or property damage.

Redundancy, relationship issues and illness can all affect any tenants ability to pay the rent. Alternatively, you must want further protection against other issues, e.g. property damage.
