The high-calibre tenants you’re seeking won’t settle just for stunning accommodation: they also expect the highest level of professionalism in the service they receive.
That’s what riverhomes provides for all our managed properties - while simultaneously removing all the strain of maintaining your investment.
The reality of being a landlord is that the phone can ring at any time of the day or night - with a tenant reporting anything from a dripping tap to an urgent safety issue.
Unless, of course, you appoint riverhomes to professionally manage your property. You can then relax in the knowledge that when our phone rings - day or night - we will take whatever action is necessary to satisfy your tenant and protect your investment.
Rest assured that we also ensure you meet your legal obligations. With over three hundred pieces of landlord legislation on the statute books (with more being added all the time), our management clients are more than happy to leave that particular headache to us.
Repairs are an unavoidable fact of property life - but seeing to them quickly and effectively makes for happy tenants, and also protects the value of your investment.
When attention to your property is needed, we instruct a member of our network of continually vetted tradespeople. We then oversee the job to ensure that they conduct the highest standard of work at a competitive price.
We also conduct regular property visits to identify any maintenance or improvements required. Taking this proactive approach to maintenance saves you money by identifying issues before they become more severe, and avoids any nasty surprises when the time comes to re-let.
Your property offers you a valuable income stream, which we protect by firmly yet professionally ensuring that rent is paid on time, every time. We collect the income and prepare your accounts (we can even pay property-related invoices on your behalf), leaving you with nothing more to do than check your monthly management statement.
If needed, we can also assist with any insurance claims - and if you need us to recommend a reputable insurer, we’re very happy to do so.
Time always seems to be scarce, and you can probably identify more valuable and enjoyable uses for it than fielding phone calls, arranging quotes, conducting inspections and worrying about paperwork.
But you don’t have to relinquish control just because you don’t want the strain of being a landlord. We keep you fully informed at every step, and you can just put in a quick call or email to your dedicated property manager if there’s anything else you want to know.
Like many of our landlords, you might also own properties that aren’t by the water. So to help you maintain a single point of contact and consistently excellent level of service, we also manage properties elsewhere in London.
Whether your property is by the water or elsewhere, we’re happy to manage it irrespective of whether we initially found your tenants for you.
