Information regarding privacy and data use on this website.
We will meet with you at your property in order to establish your particular circumstances and requirements, discuss our service in detail and agree a marketable rental value. This service is provided free of charge and without any obligation.
Successful marketing is the key to successful returns. Our comprehensive marketing package includes full colour particulars, To Let board, press advertising, inclusion on our own website and many other national websites. We have also established relationships with businesses and relocation agents whose employees and clients require accommodation in Angus.
Prospective tenants are accompanied on viewings at all times. If you or your current tenants occupy the property, viewings will be conducted strictly by appointment only.
We will take a security deposit from your tenant, equivalent to one calendar month’s rent. We will return this to your tenant at the end of a tenancy once we are satisfied all outstanding bills are paid, any damages or breakages repaired or replaced and any necessary cleaning carried out.
At Thyme Properties, we believe your tenants should be reliable and we are extremely careful in selecting the right tenants – we do not work on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. References are also obtained from previous letting agents, current employers and where applicable, to further strengthen your position. We may opt to take a guarantor to back up a tenant’s ability to meet their commitments to you.
Growth in the private rental sector has resulted in the introduction of legislation to protect both landlord and tenant interests, creating a potential minefield to navigate. We will provide guidance as to the landlord’s responsibilities and obligations in order to comply with current safety legislation.
Prior to tenancy commencement we will visit your property and prepare an inventory. This is vital to help maintain the condition of your property. This detailed document comprises a complete record of the contents and condition of the property in order to assess dilapidations during and after a tenancy term. Meter readings for gas and electricity are recorded at check-in, and we will advise the appropriate utility companies and inform the local authority council tax office of occupancy details.
Our short assured tenancy agreement can be tailored to the individual requirements and circumstances of both tenant and landlord, within the bounds of the Housing Act 1988. Our experience and knowledge of current legislation enables us to prepare bespoke tenancy agreements accordingly.
If any maintenance work is required, Thyme Properties will organise this and only consult you as the owner if the amount of the works involved exceeds £100. If the situation is an emergency, Thyme will get the work done immediately to avoid any further cost to you. For organising any maintenance work a 10% fee on the cost will be added to cover the administration and organisation of entry for tradesmen. All works are carried out by fully qualified electricians, plumbers and carpenters who have been working with Thyme since its inception. Tradesman’s Invoices for all works carried out are filed and a copy can be sent out upon your request.
Rent Collection & Accounting
We collect rental funds from your tenants and send you a detailed statement at the end of each month. Funds are then paid directly into your nominated bank account.
