Landlords

When you have a property to rent it should be a good thing. It should be beneficial to you. It should enhance your life. However, we know that sometimes it can be a real pain. It can take up so much time. It can make you question why you even bother. Well, we get that. And we are doing something about it.

The Old Approach

Rent arrears

Sometimes tenants fall into arrears and many letting agents aren't particularly proactive about that. In fact, they see it as an opportunity to charge more money for resolving the issue.

The Tick Approach

Your property earns you money. Always.

As Tick is the tenant the Landlord will be paid. On time. Every time. It’s really as simple as that.

The Old Approach

No checking tenants

Most letting agents run the most basic, standard tenant referencing steps, which anyone can do. So how do you know the person moving in is going to respect your property?

The Tick Approach

We are your tenant

The tenant is Tick, so Landlords can be assured that there is no issue with regard to the quality of people who move into the property. Of course, we will ensure all checks are done and we have a number of high quality people ready and waiting.

The Old Approach

Slow, laborious middle men

A letting agent can often slow down and complicate matters when something at fault needs attention. For example, when an appliance needs repairing, the tenant will need to contact the letting agent, and then they will need to contact the landlord. At this point, the landlord may appoint their own labourer to resolve the situation. Suddenly, a quick job has taken hours of organising and weeks to carry out.

The Tick Approach

Fast, agile and proactive responders

Any problem the tenant has Tick will solve. We’re literally available 24/7. Landlords will be kept up to date and notified where relevant. But the day to day running of the property (and all the niggly annoying things) lies with Tick; freeing landlords up to simply enjoy life.

The Old Approach

No emotional investment in the property

Many letting agents see the properties they manage as a number. They are not emotionally invested in it. Some letting agents have their own priorities and incentives and this negatively impacts on the way the property is looked after.

The Tick Approach

Your property;
our responsibility;
a shared pride

The Tick team always treats every property as if it’s our own. It’s not a number, or an entry in a database. It’s someone’s home and the pride landlords have in their home is shared by our team. We have our own cleaners attend every month and we even invest our own money in your property.

The Old Approach

Letting agents don’t need qualifications

This is unfortunate, because that means a lot of them are not suitable for the role. Not only are many of the legal tenant/landlord aspects misrepresented, but alarmingly, even the statutory regulations are just as frequently misrepresented. The problem with any commission-based job is that it often attracts a certain type of person.

The Tick Approach

Tick’s talent —
always learning, always improving

We do find it strange that a lawyer needs a qualification to practice law; a doctor needs a qualification to work with patients yet an estate agent can rent out properties without any validation of their skills. Our team are all trained, and continue to be trained, thus ensuring our team are qualified to advise landlords and work with tenants. See what we mean

The Old Approach

No tenant? –
no rent

The very definition of the old approach and a major frustration for landlords. A letting agent takes a property on and the landlord only gets paid when the letting agent fills the property. No shared risk, no shared responsibility.

The Tick Approach

No tenant? –
yes rent

An empty property used to mean no rent. No longer a problem as Tick will pay rent whether there is someone living in the property or not. Reassuring right? But there’s more. We guarantee you a rental offer within 72 hours and we can even pay your rent 12 months in advance.
