Take the stress out of summer: Instruct ARPM Inventories to undertake your Property Visits
Wednesday 4th July 2012
ARPM Inventories, one of the largest nationwide providers to the lettings industry offers consistent reporting, on-line booking technology and support to lettings businesses when they need it most. Dave Hunt, Business Development Director explains why he feels it is important that Property Visits are not put to the bottom of the ‘to-do-list’:
“With the busy summer months only a few weeks away, it is not uncommon for lettings businesses to have to prioritise their workloads whilst colleagues are taking extended leave and general demand for rental property increases. One of the areas which I have often seen put to the bottom of the ‘to do list’ is Property Visits (or Mid-Term Inspections as they are sometimes referred to) as during peak times, there is simply not enough hours in the day to do everything and such Visits may not always be regarded as business critical.
As all experience property managers and lettings business owners know, in general, landlords consider Property Visits as a very important part of the service which they receive from their agent and believe that the managed fee which they pay should ensure Visits are carried out with regularity. From my experience, I have unfortunately seen the problems which agents can encounter by not keeping up-to-date with Property Visits – with some even being threatened with legal proceedings by their landlords for breach of contract (spurred on by a Property Visit Report being completed at a later date than stated within their Terms and Conditions and the property showing severe signs of distress).
ARPM Inventories can be instructed to carry out any number of Property Visits per month and our experienced Business Development team will work with our Clients to ensure that structured plans are in place to manage completions. Our Property Visit service is not just limited to those Clients who utilise us for Inventory, Check-In and Check-Out Services; so whether a Client would like to instruct us to simply complete Property Visits during the busy summer period, or on a regular three/six monthly basis, we can help – and the costs are much less than you may think”.
If you believe that your lettings business could benefit from outsourcing Property Visits during the summer period or if you are simply considering changing your Inventory provider, then ARPM Inventories would welcome the opportunity to discuss their services with you.
