Experienced landlords will know that property management is no easy task – and that your job is not complete when a tenant is in place. Far from it, in fact.
While securing the right tenant for your property can feel like a challenge, it is the ongoing management of a property which can take up most of your time – ensuring that everything from appliances and facilities to documentation and contracts are all up to date and in good working order.
Property management support is something that has long been recommended to landlords, whether they are renting out their first property or their fifth property. It combines hands-on maintenance support with rent collection, keeping on top of legislation and regulation, and offering tenants a number to call at all hours should they need help with anything. What’s more, property management support is there for landlords long before a tenant is even in place, helping with the marketing of a property, assessing the rent amount, and even selecting the right tenant.
With so many benefits associated with using a professional property management service, it’s fair to say that this level of support is a no brainer for both new and veteran landlords. But what’s different about Pat Robson & Co., and why is now a great time to consider our property management service package?
What does our property management service include?
Our property management service start as soon as you have a property to rent out. Working with landlords to identify the key features to focus their marketing on, helping them to assess the most viable rental amount, and reaching out to prospective tenants, our management support starts with finding the right tenant.
We then work with landlords and tenants to finalise agreements, before taking on the role of ongoing property management – managing maintenance, communication, and staying on top of changing legislation and regulations.
In short, we work behind the scenes to support landlords and to ensure that tenants always have a point of call to reach out to with concerns or issues. By removing this responsibility from the shoulders of our landlords, we deliver an excellent and cohesive experience to tenants and allow landlords the freedom to focus on other areas of their business without worrying about the day to day management of each property in their portfolio.

With all that in mind, it’s time to consider the direct benefits of switching to Pat Robson & Co. today.
The benefits of switching to Pat Robson & Co.
If you’re a landlord reading this, then the chances are that you fall into one of two categories. Either you are a self-managed landlord in charge of your own listings and properties, or you currently work with another property management company.
Wherever you are coming from, making the switch to Pat Robson & Co. means making your life easier while still emphasising and prioritising the importance of your tenants’ experience.
As a landlord, it can be very easy to get wrapped up in the details of daily management and maintenance, making it difficult to take a step back and consider the bigger picture of your property business. This is when rent reviews start to be missed, marketing on new investments is overlooked, and admin starts to fall behind.
One significant benefit of switching to Pat Robson & Co. is that we provide an equal level of support both when marketing new investment properties and managing existing ones. We aren’t a one-trick pony, specialising in maintenance or marketing – rather, we manage all aspects of a modern property business, so that our landlords can access a high level of support from initial marketing through to the annual renewal of a tenant agreement and beyond.
