Landlord Services in Brighton, Hove & Sussex
At Southdown Surveyors we work with Landlords across Brighton and Hove and East Sussex providing a range of landlord services.
Residential Block Management
We offer residential block and estate management within the Brighton and Hove area. We are RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) members and as such, offer comprehensive knowledge that benefits our clients, which other companies may not be able to.
Vacant Property Inspections
If your property is going to be unoccupied for a long duration, it is worth looking at your residential home/building insurance as many of these won’t allow for vacant time periods. Many insurance providers have limits on how long your property can be empty for and if you are planning on having it uninhabited for longer than this time, the property will need to be inspected frequently. You may also want to simply have regular inspections if you’re away and can’t access the property for an extended time span.
Tenanted Property Inspections
It can be a worry to have tenants in your property and wonder if they are keeping it in good condition. Southdown Surveyors can offer regular tenanted property inspections for your property portfolio. Following inspections we will deliver a full report, giving you detailed information of what we have seen (including photos if applicable) and we will also provide suggestions for issues that may need rectifying. Following this we can then assist you or your letting agent in arranging remedial works if needed.
Lease plans are a form of survey which documents the facilities within the property in a lease agreement. This can be useful whether you are a landlord or tenant and can provide a valuable record of what is being agreed upon and can help both sides to understand their responsibilities. These plans are commonly submitted to the Land Registry as detailed documentation of the premises in question.
Landlord Gas Safety Inspection or PAT Testing
We can arrange these safety tests and any other regulatory services that are needed for your leased properties. We can contact local, skilled tradespeople who will perform these obligatory inspections. Alternatively, if you have a trades person that you prefer to work with, we can work with them on your behalf and arrange the works for you.
Secure Key Holder
We offer a secure key holding service for either individual properties or entire property portfolios. If you have other people who need to have access to your property, like contractors or friends and family, we can hold a set of your keys and then sign them out on your behalf for an agreed timeframe. This can be useful if you can’t get away from work or aren’t nearby when entry is needed. We only handover keys with your written consent and all keys are kept in a safe faculty.
