FAQ For LANDLORDS
What type of properties do you get?
We get properties from 2 beds up to 6 bedroom properties, we are always looking to get more units.
How quickly do you make an offer, and how do you value my property?
We can make you an offer in 1 day, we will visit your property to do a valuation, in the visit we will tell you more in details about our model, within 24 hours you will get an offer and finally if agreed to our offer we will send you a contract to sing in the same day.
What type of contract do we use with our landlords?
We provide a company let agreement which has been done for our business model, this makes LOVE UK your sole tenant for the period of your contract (typically 3-5 years) and gives us the authority to manage the property on your behalf. If you would like to manage your property yourself, we could talk through but the only thing we need is that you get things sorted pretty quickly, then our tenants won’t feel the 4 steeps maintenance issue process. (tenant-loveuk-landlord-loveuk-tenant).
Do I have to wait until LOVE UK find tenants before getting rent payments?
No. We’re your tenant so we pay you the rent whether the property is empty or not. This is the beauty of our model and that’s why London Landlords are loving us 🙂
Would I receive the rent directly from LOVE UK?
Yes, you will, as we mentioned before we are your sole tenants.
What if one of LOVE UK tenants do not pay the rent, would the landlord would still get the rent?
Yes, 100%, chasing the tenants for rent would become our problem. (we have a very low late payments rate)
Are there any hidden charges for using your service?
Nop, we make our profit on the differential between the rent we pay you and the rent we collect from our tenants after paying all the bills (we provide our tenants will all bills included prices) and the weekly cleaning. ( your normal maintenance responsibilities are pass to you but sometimes we even do things without charging you).
Would I have any problem with my mortgage provider with your company let agreement?
Not really, but to be safe we always recommend before signing the agreement, checking with your bank to make sure you won’t have any problem.
How can I be sure that everything is agreed in the contract is been done?
We do formal inspections every six months to all our properties, if you request it, we can also forward you the inspection report. To have also a better follow up, our cleaners make sure we get info if something is not in order on a weekly bases.
What happens if LOVE UK tenants damage the property?
We LOVE UK are your tenants, we will have to make sure this issue is rectified, but if it is not the landlord responsibility, if it is ( as the boiler) we will notify you and make sure we get it sorted.
How do you guys find tenants and how are they referenced?
We do a proper referring process, they have to provide the following: Proof of Employment, Previous landlord Reference, Proof of Address, Visa if they need a visa to be legal in UK, finally if we think after all the documents that they are not the right fit for our property we will not go ahead with the application.
