Professional Property Management in Greater Manchester

Introducing A New Breed Of Letting Agent

Geo Property Lettings are a new breed of letting agency who are very different from the traditional stereotypical letting agents that all landlords complain about.

Based in Irlam and covering the whole of Greater Manchester, we are different because we actually care about our landlord and tenant clients. We may not have a high street presence but that just means our overheads are lower, we know how to market properties and exceed client expectations, consistently!

We have been members of The Property Ombudsman since 2011 and use state of the art property management software to keep track of all our managed properties across Greater Manchester.

Geo Property Lettings get property repairs done when asked, providing photographs before and after works are conducted, with realistic quotes from tried and trusted trades who we have used for our own rental property portfolios over the last 10 years, our contractors have excellent ethics and high standards and we trust them, that’s not something that all other agents can boast!

Geo Property Lettings promise our landlord clients:

  • Quality fast & efficient service
  • High standards
  • No rip-off’s
  • No quibbles
  • No repeat charges
  • No BS!

All tenant applicants are thoroughly referenced by the UK’s leading specialist supplier of products and services to the property lettings industry and we are highly experienced dealing with both working and benefit claimants.

We can even help organise specialist insurance for landlords and tenants including;

  • Rent Protection Insurance
  • Tenant Liability Insurance
  • Landlords Buildings Insurance

Our typical charges are just 10% of the monthly rent for a full all inclusive property management service or 50% of the first month’s rent for tenant find only service.

We pride ourselves on customer retention, always delivering superb customer service and looking out for our landlord and tenant clients interests.

We are looking for landlords who are fed up with spending more time and money than they need to managing their existing letting agents, landlords who are fed up with empty properties, expensive property repair costs and poor service.

Geo Property Lettings are small enough to care

and large enough to cope!

Recent Survey Discovers UK Landlords And Tenants are happy!

Recent Survey Discovers UK Landlords And Tenants are happy!

Four Out Of Five Tenants Happy
With Their Landlords

The majority of tenants living in private rental sector (PRS) rented properties have nothing but good things to say about their landlords, according to a survey conducted by Saga Home Insurance.

In a poll of UK tenants conducted by the insurance company, 77% of tenants who responded rated their landlord as either ‘good’ or ‘excellent’.

Fewer than 8% of tenants, (1 in 10) described the quality of service they received from their landlords as ‘poor’, which the insurance firm claimed to be contrary to popular stereotypes.

The survey surmised that UK landlords are largely a morally sound, ethical group of business people!

However, 56% of the tenants polled by Saga still identified room for improvement in their tenant-landlord relationships. With:

  • 23% of tenants complaining about hard-to-reach landlords
  • 21% of tenants had reservations about the quality of tradesmen used for repairs.

The insurance firm also spoke to landlords themselves about their relationships with tenants, and the biggest obstacles to a cordial co-existence with their tenants were:

  • Late rent payments cited by 37% of landlords,
  • Damage to rental property – 32%
  • Failure to provide notice when vacating rental property – 20%.

Finally, the insurance company also discovered that at least 10% of landlords, an alarming one in ten,  had not paid tenants’ deposits into one of the three the Deposit Protection Schemes currently in operation, which as well as being illegal, can result in problems when tenant eviction becomes necessary.

Saga’s head of home insurance, Sue Green, commented on the survey results, saying “In the age of housing shortages and escalating rents, landlords have been getting some bad headlines, but the research shows the extent to which this portrayal is unfair. The vast majority of landlords are conscientious and ethical, although tenants do believe more can be done which is why we have released a guide with practical tips to help them improve their ethical credentials.”

Gas Safety Week

Gas Safety Week begins Monday September 12th, designed to remind people how dangerous gas boilers can be if they are not checked by an accredited, qualified Gas Safe technician

The National Landlords Association is urging members to make sure that all of their UK Private Rented Sector properties are safe for tenants and to ensure that only Gas Safe registered engineers are allowed to service, maintain and check gas appliances.

Landlords are legally required to have their tenants’ gas boilers tested for faults every 12 months. The subsequent inspection report (CP12) must then be given to the tenant.

Faulty boilers pose fatal dangers for tenants and landlords are liable to prosecution if they fail to maintain gas appliances.

National Landlords Association spokesman Richard Price said: “It’s vital that a registered gas engineer is always used to carry out any work on gas appliances to ensure it’s done properly. They can be found on the Gas Safe Register website.”
