Full Management Service

This service is designed for landlords who prefer us to deal with both the letting and management of their property during the tenancy.

Our full management service includes:

  • Maintenance and repairs:
    During the tenancy, Abacus Lettings will instruct contractors to undertake any necessary repairs or maintenance to the property at an agreed amount. In an emergency we will act as soon as we have knowledge of a problem and endeavour to keep costs to a minimum
  • Out of hours emergency service for maintenance, to give your tenants peace of mind
  • Completion of court forms as well as attendance in court to obtain possession, in the rare occasions that it becomes necessary to take such action (subject to an additional fee)
  • Return of deposit:
    Once the property has been checked against the inventory that was prepared at the onset of the tenancy and it has been agreed with the landlord, the deposit monies held will be returned to the tenant. If the condition of the property does not meet the standard at which it was at the commencement of the tenancy, Abacus Lettings will liaise with the landlord to discuss and agree the cost rectification and endeavour to negotiate with the tenant in order to withhold some, or all, of the deposit held. Should this not be successful we will deal with the dispute through the Tenancy Deposit Service and provide necessary documentation to support the claim
