Property Management

Barbers Letting Agents are proud to have a Property Management team specifically trained and qualified to handle all your property needs. The team, headed up by Carol Dakin MARLA are passionate about looking after Landlords and Tenants. Approachable, professional and efficient they strive to deal with any issues promptly causing less stress to both Landlord and Tenant. This experienced team of Property Managers is why we are pleased to be currently managing over 850 properties across Shropshire and surrounding areas. As a landlord you acquire a dedicated Property Manager who is assigned to your property as a consistent point of contact for you and your tenant which means we are better tailored to manage expectations.

Before a tenant moves in one of our two inspections and Inventory Officers attend the property and produce a full inventory written report accompanied with photographic evidence. They also liaise with the landlord, tenant and the tenancy deposit scheme (TDS) if necessary to conclude tenancies.

We also have a full time Property Inspector who completes the initial 3 month inspection and then carries out further inspections of the property every 6 months. After each inspection a full report is produced giving landlords suggestions and recommendations of any maintenance works that may be required internally and externally, By having regular checkups such as this it means landlords can plan any maintenance on a budget.

All staff are qualified and able to keep landlords informed of any new regulations and compliance. Currently this includes Landlord Gas Safety Certificates, Legionella Risk Assessment and smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
