Specialist Letting Agents Dublin
Rental agents offer different levels of service, so depending on how involved you are in managing the property, there will be a service level that’s right for you. By law, they must display their service level rates in the branch and on their website, so compare costs between multiple agencies. While every agent is different, there are standard services that most use.
This is a basic level of service where the letting agent will find a suitable tenant for you. This usually involves taking professional photos, designing floor plans, and advertising your property where it gets the most attention. They can also organize and attend visits, carry out reference and tenancy law checks, draft the lease and make an inventory. With a tenant found and a move-in date set, the rest is up to you.
Normally a percentage of the monthly rent, somewhere around five percent. In some cases, rent collection can be part of the tenant search service. The rental agent will collect and manage the legal requirements with regard to the deposit and collect the rent from the tenant. They also look for rent arrears, give you notice of termination and are on hand to advise you if tenants fail to pay their rent. Some brokers even offer insurance that protects your income in case of rent arrears.
A larger percentage of the monthly rent around 15-20%. The letting agent takes full control of managing all aspects of letting your property, including the services offered in connection with tenant identification and rent collection. They correspond with the tenant throughout the duration of the rental, organize maintenance, inventory of fixtures, check-in, check-out and any deposit disputes.
Which letting agent service should I use?
The service you use can depend entirely on the number of properties you rent out, their location and your involvement as a landlord. If you only rent one or two properties and can manage the property yourself, you may only need help finding tenants.
If you’d rather not be bothered with rent payments, rent collection is an option to consider. A fully managed service is ideal if the property is far from your home or if you are renting multiple properties.
