Every property is deferent, with a varied appeal to potential tenants.
McLoughlin Barry Property Management must evaluate each property for
its potential rental income. Only discussion with the Landlord and
a personal inspection of the property by McLoughlin Barry staff can
set the scene for a successful letting.
Knowing and understanding what tenants expect in today's market McLoughlin
Barry Property Management will advice what rent can be expected. Our
staff will also suggest any small improvements that might assist in
letting the property. We also advice the landlords who are considering
letting their properties unfurnished. Personal possessions should
be removed, but the property should retain a lived in and homely appearance.
Marketing your Property to Let
After an initial visit to your property where rent and length of lease
has been established, letting particulars are prepared. We display an internal and window display. We add details of your property to our website and on daft.ie. We always accompany potential tenants
when viewing the property. For this reason we require a key to ensure
that we can view your property at all times. We advertise daily on local press and on the internet and
your property will be included at regular intervals until a suitable tenant
is found. There is an advertising charge of €20 per property.
Once the tenant views the property and decides that they want to make
an offer, we seek both work references to ensure payment of rent and
previous landlord references or parental guarantees or solicitor references from those who
have not rented property before.
McLoughlin Barry Property Management draw up a tenancy agreement
between the Landlord and Tenant. Both sign three copies that we countersign
as witnesses. The Landlord receives a copy as do the tenants and a
copy is kept on file in the office.
Gas, Electricity and Telephone supplies are normally transferred into
the tenants name at the commencement of the tenancy. Landlords are
advised and reminded to check account to ensure utilities have been
For our management service we will require a copy of old ESB, Gas and Phone bills if applicable, to transfer the accounts.
First time Landlords should ensure that all appliances are in good
working order. The cost of faulty appliances is borne by the landlord
except where work to be carried out has resulted from neglect or damage
caused by the tenants.
We provide a service where if maintenance or works need to be carried out, we can oversee this at a charge of 10% of the cost of the works.
To protect your property staff of McLoughlin Barry Property Management
will draw an up to date inventory.
One month's deposit is collected from the tenant at the commencement
of the tenancy. This deposit is lodged into the Landlords account
and will be returned at the end of the tenancy. This deposit can be
used to repair or replace any damaged items other than normal wear
and tear of the property.
New Tenancy Agreement
McLoughlin Barry Property Management where instructed will draw up
an new tenancy agreement where the original tenant wishes to remain
in the property.
Protecting your Investment
As you can see from the above letting procedure we take the responsibility
of letting very seriously. We feel it necessary to point out that
if the landlord decides to take the management to rent collection
services then he needs to remember that both collecting the rent or
checking the bank accounts are important.
Twelve month Letting Fee of 6% ARI (Annual Rental Income) plus VAT.
