Fully Managed is our landlords’ most popular choice as it covers everything, so you can sit back and relax (or concentrate on your day job!)

By choosing this service we carry out regular, thorough property visits, taking photographs at every visit to create an in-depth report. Each report provides both landlord and tenant with a regular, accurate record of the property’s condition, giving reassurance to the landlord and helping reduce the risk of disputes at a later date.

Because our Property Managers are highly experienced and are each dedicated to caring for a portfolio of properties, they can spot maintenance issues before they become serious or cause damage. By ensuring issues are dealt with promptly, potentially more serious problems are nipped in the bud, thus avoiding the need for more costly repairs later.

We would love to find out more about your circumstances and give you the chance to ask us any questions about this service or letting with Northfields. Please contact your local branch to discuss with a member of your local team.

Day-to-Day Maintenance

We will deal, without further prior notification, with day-to-day management matters, including minor repairs up to a maximum figure of £360 inc VAT on any one occasion.

If the cost of the works exceeds or is likely to exceed £360 including VAT, we’ll notify you and obtain authorisation. In the case of an emergency, we will proceed with all essential or emergency works which are required to safeguard your property and/or to comply with your statutory or contractual obligations under the Tenancy Agreement to maintain and repair your property.

By signing our terms of business you agree that we can instruct contractors on your behalf and deduct the cost of repairs and maintenance from the rent or the fund held against your property. Please note that you shall always remain liable for the payment of all invoices to tradesmen.

24-Hour Emergency Maintenance

Your tenants in a fully managed property will have our emergency contact details for all out-of-office-hour issues.  We understand that sometimes things go wrong at really inconvenient moments, but at Northfields we have a team of expert property managers on hand round the clock to ensure everything is dealt with quickly and efficiently, even on Christmas Day!

Annual Gas Safety Certificate and Boiler Service

We can organise your annual Gas Safety Check for you, and this can be confirmed at the point of instruction. If arranged by yourself then a copy of each Gas Safety Record must be provided to us within five working days of the inspection being due. If you require a boiler service, then this is optional and we can offer this service, just let us know!

Non Resident Landlord

If you live abroad for 6 months or more per year, you’re classed as a ‘non-resident landlord’ by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) – even if you’re a UK resident for tax purposes. We will ask you to provide approval for us to pay you rent in full, if not we will deduct the tax and account this to the HMRC quarterly. The Agent will only cease deducting tax from a non-resident Landlord upon receipt from HM Revenue & Customs of the appropriate certificate to pay Rent income gross.

EICR Electrical Installation Condition Report

An EICR is due at least every five years, it can vary depending on the age of the property and conditions of the electrics. We’ll contact you three months prior to your EICR being due to find out your requirements, if not already advised. We can organise the report for you, and this can be confirmed at the point of instruction or when we contact you to remind you the report is next due.

Property Visits

We shall endeavour to visit the premises periodically. Visits can be carried out more frequently if requested in writing and deemed necessary by you or us. Additional visits will be subject to a charge of £90 including VAT provided that the tenant grants us access.

If the tenant does not grant access we shall inform you in writing, but it will be your responsibility to seek independent legal advice on how to proceed with the tenancy. These visits are of a limited nature in order to verify the general good order of the premises and the proper conduct of the tenancy by the tenant. A visit will not constitute a complete check of every part of, or every item, in the premises, but will enable us to note any lack of repair or maintenance, which should be brought to your attention. A visit will only note repairs of which we are informed, or which are clearly visible. We are not liable for any loss or damage due to hidden or latent defects.

Report a Repair

We have a report and repair service where tenants can report maintenance issues 24/7 on an online portal. The portal requires tenants to provide all the essential information needed to obtain accurate quotes and carry out effective first-time repairs. The portal also gives guidance on how to resolve issues safely if it is the tenant’s responsibility.
