Landlords

With the many changes in legislation in recent times particularly the Tenant Fee Ban, there is growing dissatisfaction amongst Landlords using the services of agents who have a seemingly endless list of fee’s. Thomas & Rawson’s Landlord fees are not only very competitive, but they are clear and simple as there are only 4 chargeable fee’s which are a:

  • Marketing and Set Up Fee

    £360 inc VAT
  • Full Management Fee

    12% of the rent collected inc VAT. (Only 12% for new landlords)

    12% inc VAT
  • Tenancy Renewal Fee

    £120 inc VAT
  • 'Check out' Fee

    Only at the end of Tenancy.

    £120 inc VAT

Our Fully Managed Landlords also receive the benefit of our ‘Emergency Out of Hours’ Service. This service is very reassuring for our Landlords as they know that Thomas & Rawson will manage an emergency situation which a tenant discovers out of office hours. If a tenant has an emergency such as a burst water main at the weekend, in the evening or during a bank holiday most Letting Agents will not be accessible and a tenant will likely go through Yell.com to call out an Emergency Plumber who may charge an ‘Emergency Call out Rate’ with the expectation that the Landlord will pay the bill. If one of Our Managed tenants call’s the main office number at an obscure time, our phones are diverted to a Thomas & Rawson member of staff who will either handle the call immediately or deal with a message left on the voicemail (which is monitored hourly). We can then manage the emergency either using our tradesmen or tradesmen of the Landlords choosing and also keeping our Landlords up to date as and when a problem occurs.
