I have been working with Shakil for over 5 years and I am continuously pleased by their professionalism and reliability. I have a Guaranteed Rent agreement with Wentworth and I have been receiving my agreed rent on time every month since. I regularly inspect my property and it’s always in excellent condition. Definitely recommend.
Thank you so much Shakil, for managing my properties with so much care. I do not stress about my tenants or the state of the property at all, knowing it’s in your hands. Thank you for your promptness and commitment.
A Guaranteed Rent Scheme (sometimes also known as Rent-to-Rent) entails a contractual agreement between a landlord and a company, an institution, a letting agent, or an individual. For a specified term, the landlord agrees to relinquish their control and management over their property (with conditions & clauses for opt-out) in exchange for a guaranteed rent, monthly.
Thus, that company / institution / letting agent or individual rents the property from you, the landlord, and then sub-lets it to tenants while managing the full process. The tenants have no direct relationship with the landlord, and everything is handled by the ‘main tenant’. It alleviates some of the overwhelming set of responsibilities a landlord has and works very well for:

During the term of the lease, an agent can agree to be responsible for the end-to-end process when it comes to property management. From maintenance, and compliance, to complementary services such as interior design and redecoration. Here are the top 3 benefits, Guaranteed Rent Schemes provide:

It all depends on what type of involvement you want to have, and what expertise you might need.
First of all you need to consider expertise; both in the field of property management but also in the area. For example if you’re a landlord with property in London, the market is unique and very fast-paced so it’s recommended you choose a property management agent in London. Also consider the type of property you own. For example new developments or waterside properties require bespoke care so experience and expertise is important.
Second of all, no matter how hands off or how involved you want to be, communication is key. You want your agent to keep you up-to-date with the wellbeing of your asset. It’s an investment nonetheless and you can test that in the early stages of communication.
Last but not least, ensure their commission or fee structure is reasonable and competitive, to ensure you stay profitable.

Managing a property portfolio or an HMO inherently requires some management expertise otherwise it can become very stressful. The aim of having support is to make your life easier while letting you focus on the growth of your portfolio or investing your effort into creating other streams of income.
The ownership, letting and management of a property doesn’t come easy. The tasks are never-ending, and the process requires 24/7 management: viewings, rent negotiations, tenant referencing, agreements, inventories, emergency repairs, refurbishments, rent collection, debt management, taxes, and safety regulations…to name a few. Some landlords see rental management as a blessing and are grateful for the minimal involvement, whereas others see the lack of control as a problem.
The cost of the service is what makes landlords question if they can pull off self-management. Your perception of value for money is what makes it worth it. There are of course also financial benefits to property support such as rent collection and rent protection. This can provide you with financial security and peace of mind.
