Services for Nottingham landlords

Landlords in Nottingham – do you have one or more rental properties in or around Nottingham?

Are you looking for a property management company that can find new tenants, maintain your properties and help you make the most of your property investments?

Do you value transparent fees and a company that will ensure your properties meet the requirements of current legislation?

If so, we think you’ll find Able Property Trust a great fit.

We’ve been working with landlords in Nottingham for the past 18 years. Not only that, but we have a large buy-to-let portfolio of our own properties, so we completely understand the issues that matter to you as a landlord and property owner.

We currently cover over 200 properties in the Nottinghamshire area on either a full management or regular tenant find basis. As a large proportion of our tenants prefer to continue to let through Able Property Trust and we get lots of word of mouth recommendations (plus responses to our advertising), we are constantly taking on new managements to meet this need.

Your tenants’ deposits

In additional to a traditional deposit scheme where tenants are charged a deposit that is held by mydeposits.co.uk, we also offer a deposit-free renting scheme through flatfair, who are insured by an A-rated financial institution that works with government-authorised adjudicators.

This is available to tenants in properties where landlords have informed us they would like to offer a choice of schemes to prospective tenants.

Landlords who join the flatfair scheme typically benefit from extra protection, more rent, faster payouts and fewer voids.

Instead of paying a large deposit (£600 average), tenants pay a one-off, non-refundable flatfair membership fee of one week’s rent + VAT. This covers the cost of any lawful claims at the end of their tenancy.

If tenants owe rent or payment for damages, they will pay via the scheme when they leave. If the property is well maintained, they have nothing to pay.

As a landlord, you are able claim up to 12 weeks’ rent direct from flatfair, with free
recovery for any additional costs – this means no more limiting deposits.

Lower upfront costs for tenants and faster payouts for lawful claims help you re-let properties faster.
