There Are Many Benefits To Using A Property Management Company
A fundamental mistake landlords make is choosing not to use a reliable property management company. There is a common misconception that managing a property independently will save landlords money. In fact, it often turns out to be a false economy, as our team at Properly knows all too well.
Many landlords in London come to us once they realise how challenging it can be to deal with all aspects of property management themselves and soon begin to recognise the benefits that using a property manager will bring.
Here we’ll look at the benefits of using a property management company.
A Single Contact Point For Tenants
Rather than having to deal with your tenants yourself, your trusted property management company will be able to resolve any problems and issues arising on your behalf. Property management companies offer a 24-hour service, so they are available to help when you are unavailable. Handling tenant complaints when letting your property can be stressful, but management companies will handle matters without you needing to involve yourself directly.
Reduced Tenant Turnover
Thanks to the practical, effective, and speedy services that your property management company will provide, the chances of high tenant turnover become much lower. If any changes occur on your side, such as a rent increase, your tenants are likely to be more prepared to cooperate when they know they’re in safe hands.
A Lower Chance Of Legal Problems
If you’re unlucky enough to experience a problem tenant, you can find legal issues mount up over time, costing you money and time. A property management company will be familiar with the most recent legislation and will be able to handle legal matters appropriately and efficiently on your behalf.
Timely Rent Collection
When you use the services of a property management company, you won’t need to worry about collecting your rent payments yourself. This can be a relief if you have difficult tenants. If they fail to make payment on time, a property management company will enforce the lease policies, taking appropriate steps to ensure that you’re fully covered.
Reduced Maintenance Costs
When you use a property management company, you will be able to take advantage of their maintenance provision team, who will keep your property in excellent working order. This is a far cheaper alternative to hiring external professionals every time something needs fixing. Also, the property management maintenance team will be familiar with your tenants and ensure all work is carried out professionally and correctly.
Why Use A Property Management Company
As a landlord dealing with all your tenants’ issues with no professional assistance can be highly stressful and time-consuming. The ideal solution is to use a trusted local property management company like Properly. You’ll experience far less stress and will be sure to enjoy excellent value for money, with reduced tenant turnover and maximised rental revenue.

London Youth work to improve the lives of young people in London, challenging them to become the best they can, and last year helped over 27,000 young people through their sports development, youth action and involvement, arts and outdoor education programmes and employment prospects. We feel strongly that all young people should have an opportunity to develop themselves, and so are delighted to be able to support London Youth in their work, providing young people with access to opportunities they might not otherwise have had, to learn new skills, to make a positive change in their communities and to shape the city they live in.
Glass Door helps homeless men and women in London through their large network of emergency shelters and support services. These winter shelters provide a warm welcome, food, safety and shelter for up to 170 people every night. Properly feels passionately about the issue of homelessness. That is why we are delighted that together with our clients we can assist Glass Door in their fantastic work to help some of the most marginalised people in society.
Families become homeless for reasons we can all identify with. We are concerned about people who are struggling to keep things together in our fast-paced world – and we care about those who have no support. We chose the Doorstep Homeless Family Project because they are passionate and effective yet they are a small team with limited funding. They provide homeless families, living in temporary accommodation in London, with access to services to secure the emotional and practical support they require to enjoy a better quality of life.
We need nature and nature needs us. We support The London Wildlife Trust because we share its concern for the environment. We want to ensure that we keep nature in mind as we work in the property market – and crucially, with people’s homes. We also want our employees to engage with nature and benefit from the wellbeing this brings. London Wildlife Trust cares for over 37 of London’s spaces, and their vision is: “a London alive with nature, where everyone can experience and enjoy wildlife”.
We had the opportunity to interact with Michael of Properly in our search for a new rental flat. Michael was professional and courteous in our dealings with him. He was a pleasure to interact with and he frankly stood out amongst all the agents we interacted with over a search of several weeks.
Michael and Mariel have been very helpful from the time I contacted them on a property I was interested to rent and through the offer process. Mariel did a wonderful video call showing of the house since I was not in London at the time. I felt completely comfortable to sign the lease from the video call. Thank you Mariel!
The service is outstanding. Mariel could not be more helpful and professional. Every individual I engaged with, was well informed and had the full history of conversations. First class service.
Amazing people, responsive, honest, friendly and professional. Cannot fault them and the type of company, you will go back to again and again.
We had such an easy and stress free move. Michael helped us with all our questions and was quick to find out any answers to our questions. Would highly recommend.
The level of customer service I received at Properly with Mariel and her team was frankly outstanding. It’s lovely when people genuinely care and go the extra mile which certainly they did. I couldn’t recommend them more highly, the most pleasurable property experience ever for me.
Mariel helped me sell my apartment in West London. She was always there when I needed her. Her advice was invaluable and made everything a whole lot easier. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
I was so pleased to be introduced to Properly. Mariel and Michael provide an excellent service that took the stress and hassle out of finding a tenant. They were a pleasure to deal with, efficient and fast. A marked difference from the hidden costs and poor communication often encountered from other high street estate agents. I would thoroughly recommend and happily use again!
