In an ideal world everything would run just as it should.
Tenants wouldn’t struggle to meet the rent, landlords would be paid every month without fail, fish would leap out of the streams onto our plates and so on.
In the meantime we just have to deal with things as they are.
Try as we might falling behind with rent happens.
Every landlord has to deal with it at some point. Even the preventative measure of setting up a standing order offers very little guarantees.
So what can you do?
Do you make an exception? Should you allow the debt to accumulate in the hope that it will be paid at a later date? Do you deal with it informally? Or do you start the legal proceedings as soon as you can?
A Section 8 Notice can be used by landlords to regain possession of a property that has fallen into rent arrears of more than two months. You theoretically only need to give the tenant 14 days’ notice but again there is no guarantee that everything will run just as it should.
Wouldn’t it be perfect if all of this hassle and trouble could be taken away with a click of your magical heels?
Dealing with rent arrears is at best a hassle. At worst it can be downright unpleasant and stressful.
How about if I offered to take away the prospect of ever having to deal with rent arrears?
I would not charge you a management or an administrative fee. I’d also look after the day-to-day maintenance of your property. What’s more, on top of giving you a landlord’s life without rent arrears, I would also offer to guarantee you continual rent, regardless of whether your property was empty or occupied.
And I will start paying you this rent today (not when I first find you a tenant).
It sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?
Welcome to rent without arrears.
Welcome to hassle-free renting.
Welcome to a landlord’s dream come true.
