important things you should know

Rental Property Management Suffolk

& Cambridgeshire

Tenant Find Only
If you have the time or inclination to manage a property investment all by yourself then our Let Only is the best fit. Let us launch our all-inclusive marketing of your property, conduct viewings and source you a quality tenant, handle robust ‘belts and braces’ reference checks, craft a tenancy agreement with special clauses (if necessary for a company let, USAF or corporate relocation), collect the first month’s rent and lodge the deposit with a government approved Tenancy Deposit Scheme, check-in your tenant, arrange an inventory and then handover the management of the tenancy to you.

Full Management
By far our most popular choice for both landlords and tenants is our Elite Management service. We handle the tenancy from end-to-end helping eliminate void periods and deal with any and all unforeseen issues that may arise. Literally your investment becomes our responsibility and we provide you with the complete hassle-free and peace-of-mind solution.

In addition to our Let Only service tier, your local lettings expert will affect day-to-day maintenance and repair issues utilising our army of local vetted qualified contractors, collect and promptly transfer by BACS rent payments and take appropriate measures on those rare occasions of late payments including serving notices, holding keys (accidental lock outs or misplacing of keys by your tenant(s) do happen more than you might think!), be on hand 24/7/365 in the event of emergencies, mitigate risks by keeping ahead of the myriad of changing government legislation and upholding required landlord safety and regulation standards while maximising return from rent renewals in line with market movements, mediate disputes (our landlords and tenants like the arm’s length nature where we step in as an independent party to seek a resolution or find a compromise), negotiate the return of a deposit if damages occur, ensuring your property is returned in the same pristine condition as originally found – after all quality attracts quality and this is why our happy tenants reside in our fully managed properties over many years!

Landlords who opt for our Elite Management also enjoy the full privilege of our service pledge benefits… unmatched by many agents.

Whatley Lane have created service levels to suit those of you requiring a quality service, if you appreciate our core values you will appreciate that each is delivered individually to suit you, as an individual.

If you prefer to contact us to talk through your options – we would be happy to help.
