Property Management – A Step-By-Step Process
At Oaks Property Management, we have made the process of engaging us as your property manager as simple as possible. From the very first contact you make with us, you will be treated professionally by our friendly and experienced team. Details of how the process works are below.
Step 1 – Free Appraisal
This first stage starts by giving us a call on 0800 888 223 or completing the quick form on our free appraisal request page. We will then arrange a meeting to discuss your needs and investment strategy.
Step 2 – Give Us Authority
You need to give us formal authority before we can manage your properties. Remember, however, we don’t have long-term contracts and there is no minimum commitment. In other words, you are not locked in so can change your mind at any time.
Step 3 – Transfer from Current Property Manager
If you don’t have a current property manager you can skip this step and move to Step 4. If you do have a current property manager, they will need to be informed. We handle this process for you but you will need to send us the details of the current property manager. You will also need to send us an email that states Oaks Property Management is now your property manager.
Step 4 – Details of the Existing Tenant
If you don’t currently have a tenant in your property you can skip this step and move to Step 5. If you do have a tenant, we will need the following:
- The current lease
- The property condition report created at the start of the tenancy
- Details of rent payments received, including if the tenant is in arrears
- The tenant’s contact details
We will get this information from your existing property manager if you have one. Once we have the information we will contact the tenant to let them know we are the new property manager and will be looking after their tenancy.
Step 5 – Give Us Keys
The final step is to give us keys to your property. We need keys to show potential tenants the property, handle maintenance call-outs, complete property inspections, and deal with emergencies.
If you need more information on the process or any of the services we offer, please get in touch with us today by calling 0800 888 223.
