You have to have a valid EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) to market a property. If you don’t have one we can arrange for one to be done at a cost of £55, including VAT. If you have bought or have let your property since 2007, then you’ll probably already have one.
We have been managing and sourcing property for over twenty years now, during which time we have established ourselves as one of the region’s leading letting agents.
MRC has Client Money protection (CMP), the initiative which safeguards landlords and tenants funds held by letting agents, this remains a voluntary choice for agents currently and you should ask yourself why an agent wouldn’t offer this when choosing who to put your property with.
By choosing MRC to manage your property / properties you will benefit from our dedicated and experienced team who manage a large portfolio of rental properties across the region.
Our aim is to provide landlords with a comprehensive hassle-free service offering a range of property management options, ranging from tenant find, full management and our market leading 'MRC Management Plus' service. Another significant aspect of our full management /MRC management plus services is our online, 24/7 landlord login on our website. This allows landlords to view their statements and property notes, all available on screen or downloaded to PDF for printing.
Tenant referencing is also something we excel at, we do not just look at the results of the reference, our experienced team analyse the tenant’s full situation and then present our recommendations to you and jointly decide on the best tenant for your property.
We offer several different tenancy types from company tenancies, Assured Shorthold Tenancies to Guaranteed Rents lease agreement and it’s imperative all legal paperwork is compliant and to the latest regulations. The legislation for letting a property is constantly changing and at MRC we have legally backed documentation, notices and procedures to ensure you are fully compliant.
Using the latest software and technology, we prepare thorough and highly-detailed inventories on each of the properties that we manage. In addition, we carry out detailed, twice yearly reports, Legionnaires risk assessments (when required) and checkouts once a tenant vacates. We are registered with the DPS who hold all our deposits and we are members of a number of regulatory bodies including Ombudsman Services: Property, NALS and Safe Agent....
Maintaining your property is a key priority for us and we have a number of contractors and a dedicated maintenance team to deal with any maintenance issues during the tenancy. We are about to install a new web based system enabling tenants to report issues instantly, include photos of the problem and use the online guides so they can resolve smaller issues.
