The easiest way to avoid a deposit disaster

Date Published 13 June 2017

It's the situation every landlord and tenant dreads.

An ongoing dispute over a deposit.

It causes stress, is time consuming and can be expensive – for both sides.

A report which came out recently showed that disputes over deposits were at their highest since 2007.

But it doesn't need to be this way.

Using a local, experienced and consistent lettings department like ours is a big step on the path to avoiding tenancy disputes further down the line.

Experience really counts in the world of lettings and we've doing it for years, day in day out. There's hardly any issue we've not come across and dealt with successfully.

Also having a consistent person to deal with is really helpful if you are a landlord or tenant.

As a landlord, you are no longer able to play judge and jury; that power has been taken away. Instead, to safeguard your investment, it is essential that you have a meticulously prepared inventory arranged at both the check in and check out stages of a tenancy.

At Case McNair we use the latest inventory software. We have vast experience in helping landlords just like you save hundreds of pounds on bills for damages that were not their fault. Our detailed check in and check out inventory reports are designed to provide you with a comprehensive report of your property, its condition, and its contents.

Our reports include in-depth information on everything from walls and ceilings, to light fittings and heating, and are written in non-technical language, free of jargon and easy to understand. To further guarantee landlord protection, we even go the extra mile to provide digital photographic evidence as standard.

Our team have been together for years and that builds up rapport, trust and understanding with our clients as letting a property is an ongoing business.

We don't just let it and leg it.

And our lettings department is here in Manchester, not in a centralised call centre overseas (unlike some corporate agencies). You'll be working with people that live locally and know the area.

So don't despair, a deposit disaster can be avoided by choosing the right letting agent.

Thanks for reading and if you have any property related questions please don't hesitate to get in touch with us – we'd love to help you.
