The Rent Guarantee

THE RENT GUARANTEE

Services:

The Rent Guarantee Scheme is designed to protect your rental income in case your tenant defaults
for any reason.

PARKYNS can process your next let through the Rent Guarantee Scheme and take the risk out of
property rental for you.

How it Works:

It’s simple! If the tenant fails to pay the monthly rent we will:

• Pay the monthly rent in arrears with no excess (many policies charge a one months excess).
• Cover all legal costs involved in regaining possession.
• Ensure payments will continue up until vacant possession has been obtained.

Charges

This service is only available on our managed properties:

• An additional monthly fee of (PLEASE CALL FOR DETAILS)% of the monthly income plus VAT

Other useful info

Useful Information

Repairs:

If something does go wrong, the tenant will
contact us and we will inform you of the problem.
If at times we cannot reach you and the fault is
of a serious nature we will instruct an approved
contractor to rectify the problem. This is to protect
the property from any further damage that may
have occurred from the fault and naturally it is part
of your obligation as a landlord to keep the property
in repair.

If you wish for us to gain quotes for some
works that are less urgent we can do so, some
contractors may charge for this. If you have any
service contracts with, for example British Gas,
please do let us know and we can alert them if a
problem occurs.

Gas Appliances and Central Heating:

It is a legal requirement that every gas appliance
and gas central heating system are checked
annually by a GasSafe Engineer and an appropriate
certificate is issued.

We can arrange for this to be done by local GasSafe
engineers. Once the inspection has been completed
we can arrange for this to be undertaken annually.
The charge would then be deducted from your
monthly statement.

Tax:

Income received from renting any property is
subject to tax (we strongly recommend you take
advice from an accountant).

Insurance:

As a landlord you are responsible for the building
and therefore the buildings insurance. You must
advise your insurance company of your intention to
let to ensure that your policy remains valid.

Energy Performance Certificates (EPC):

An EPC is required whenever letting out a
property. The EPC shows two things - the Energy
Efficiency Rating (relating to running costs) and the
Environmental Impact Rating (relating to the carbon
dioxide emissions) of a dwelling. Each rating is
shown on an A-G rating scale similar to those used
for fridges and other electrical appliances. These
are undertaken by a qualified Domestic Energy
Assessor (DEA) and are valid for 10 years.
If you do not have an EPC for your property
PARKYNS can arrange for this to be done.

Overseas landlords:

If you are a landlord living overseas there will
be tax implications when letting out a property.
Please contact us to obtain the necessary
HMRC paperwork.

Mortgage:
If you have a mortgage on the property you wish to
let and this is not a ‘buy to let mortgage’ we advise
you to discuss with your lender your intentions to let.
