Inventories

A full and comprehensive inventory of your property can be made by one of our professional residential lettings negotiators once a suitable tenant is found. A full check out assessment and inventory update made at the end of each tenancy agreement.

Visits and Reports

We can make regular scheduled visits of your property as required to check that your tenant is maintaining the condition of your property in accordance with your contract and to assess any property maintenance required.

Renewal and Rental Increase Negotiation

One of our professional local lettings negotiators can evaluate your property at the end of each rental contract prior to renewal to calculate rental increases due in line with the current Southampton Property Rental Market. We will then contact your tenant on your behalf to negotiate these increases into their renewal contract.

Property Management

Location Property Services have a dedicated property maintenance engineer on staff and a personal working relationship with trades associates who regularly work for us. If you choose to have your property managed by us we can arrange all maintenance work, repair, certification and testing that is required to keep in line with legislation and at a very competitive rate.

Our level of involvement can be tailored to your personal requirements.

If you are a landlord who is out of the country for most of the time, or living abroad, we can be the key holder and go to for your tenant for all maintenance and management issues, providing full support and taking care of everything for you.

Alternatively you can set your parameters with us to enable you as much or as little participation with the tenant as you desire.
