Dave & Sue Johnson:

We offer a portfolio of refurbished properties to let in Northamptonshire (Kettering, Corby, Gretton, Rothwell) two houses in Rutland (Uppingham & Morcott), and a house in Bristol, Leeds, and Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Whilst we sometimes use Letting agents to 'find' tenants for us we manage the properties ourselves. This means that our tenants benefit from having landlords with a very hands-on approach to maintenance. We take great care in renovating/modernising our properties and obviously want to ensure that we maintain the upkeep of our properties once the tenant has moved in.

We are members of the National landlords Association

Whilst we don’t charge a registration fee, we do charge a one-off fee of £30, which is the cost for us to register your deposit with a government-approved tenancy deposit scheme. Normally we ask for a deposit equivalent to one month’s rent.

We sometimes get asked by tenants if they can keep a pet. The answer depends on the property in question (we wouldn’t be keen on anyone having a dog on the top floor of an apartment for example) We ask our tenants to sign a ‘Pets Clause’ in which  they undertake to have the property professionally cleaned when they leave the property if they have a pet.

Generally our leases are for a period of six months. We know that in this present financial climate there is a lot of property out there that people could not sell and therefore are letting them until the market picks up. For us, we are in it for the long term, so don’t worry, we are not going to be ending your tenancy so we can sell the house! Some of our tenants have been with us for 4-5 years – we are creating ‘homes!’
