Portfolio Management

Lettings Portfolio Management for residential landlords

BETTER SERVICE & LOWER COSTS

Our Portfolio Management team looks after lettings investments in properties we block manage. We’ve considerable in-house experience in this field, and have previously managed lettings campaigns across whole residential developments

We can offer you a better, more streamlined way of managing you lettings investments – which as well as significantly reducing your service charge contribution, limits your risk exposure, and makes it easier to pay your charges.

  • Less void periods
  • Lower Maintenance Costs
  • Easier Fault Reporting
  • Properly Checked AST
  • Lower Service Charges

Why NextGen Portfolio Management

1. LESS VOIDS AND BETTER RENTS – We deploy a tried and tested ‘panel-management’ approach to lettings , and will organise a panel of 3 or 4 agents to generate maximum marketing exposure for your property when your tenancy ends. This is a similar system to the one used by institutional investors (like pension funds) and reliably delivers the best results

2. LOWER MAINTENANCE COSTS – When things need repairing inside the property, our contractors are more than likely cheaper than those used by letting agents as they supply services to us at trade prices.

3.  REGULAR INSPECTIONS – Most letting agents only visit their properties when they’re marketing them. We’re on site at most of the buildings we manage at least once a month – so we’ll be able to offer your tenants a more hands-on service.

4. EASIER FAULT REPORTING – When we also manage your rental tenants, it’s easier for them to report faults (they wont have to report them via a third party agent)- and we’re often able to diagnose problems more quickly as we manage the entire building.

5. SIMPLER SERVICE CHARGE PAYMENTS – On Instruction we can make payments against your service charge balance directly from your rental income

6. PROPERLY CHECKED AST – We’ll make sure that your tenants are always occupying your property under a tenancy agreement that properly reflects your obligations under the lease. Something which your existing agents are very unlikely to do, and which (unless you’re taking the time to do it yourself) is highly likely to be currently creating some level of risk!
