When it comes to avoiding disputes, experience counts
25 May 2018
When it comes to avoiding disputes, experience countsNo one wants to end up in dispute, whether it’s a minor matter or something more serious. Clearly the best option is to avoid getting into a situation which could result in a formal disagreement.
“When it comes to renting out a property, of any size or price bracket, the key is to lay down the ground rules from the outset so everyone knows where they stand and to prevent misunderstandings later,” says Hannah Glew, manager at Henry Adams Lettings in Horsham.
“By providing a thorough check-in process, right down to the smallest detail of the property, a comprehensive record of condition is on file which everyone has confirmed is accurate. Our inventory clerk will ensure the information is complete and correct.”
The in-house property managers at Henry Adams Lettings spend much of their time out and about, taking a hands-on approach to acting for our landlord clients. They also organise any necessary remedial work to enable tenants to enjoy living in their rented home.
“Property management can be quite a challenging role but it’s always interesting as every day is different. It’s a very important aspect to keep on top of because things don’t always go as planned, however careful you are to reduce risk. We’ve come across most scenarios over the years and we can bring all that experience to the party when it comes to discovering the best outcome for all concerned.
“Certainly, by providing the very best service, both for our landlord clients who entrust us with the management of their properties and for their tenants, we can genuinely help avoid disputes. It’s by no means foolproof but thinking ahead can substantially reduce any friction even arising as we can nip things in the bud, taking a third party stance,” Hannah adds.
“It’s always nice to know that our landlord clients have confidence in our service which means they don’t need to worry about the day to day management.”
