Corporate and Private Tenants
At Direct Residential we have extensive links with major banks and corporations to find accommodation for their executives. We also work closely with relocation agents to offer our landlords the best tenants on the market.
Through regular circulation of new instructions to our database of quality tenants and combined with our extensive procurement links, your property should not sit empty for long.
Your property will be marketed to achieve the best possible rental for you. We do this by using the most prominent websites for property including Find a Property, Prime Location, Rightmove and in excess of twenty others, frequented by tenants. This is complimented by automatic property updates to prospective tenants, when we are instructed on a new property and regular advertising in local newspapers/distributions. Clearly covering every angle to reduce void periods.
Full Credit Checking - How Safe is Your Property?
We conduct thorough credit checks on all prospective tenants, through our associated professional company and reserve the right to decline any application in the interests of protecting a landlords investment. After all, your investment is very precious and we take our responsibilities very seriously to keep it in good order. Our rental arrears are virtually non-existent and rent insurance can be arranged if required.
As Direct Residential only select the best tenants for your property, under our Full Management Service, we are able to offer a RENT GUARANTEE for 6 months. (This policy is offered subject to satisfactory references and status of the tenant and further charge).
Drafting of Leases and Useful Reminders

A deposit equivalent to 6 weeks rent is usually taken and held in a Clients Deposit Account until the end of the tenancy (previously this used to be held by the landlord). This is protected by our registration with Tenancy Deposit Solutions. Upon vacating, we/the landlord re-inspect the property, then subject to no breaches of the agreement and proof of settlement for all utility accounts, the deposit will be refunded (if holding) usually within a maximum of 10 days (assuming there is no dispute).
We inspect the property every 3 months of the tenancy under our Full Management Service. Our staff will carry out this inspection and a written report is then sent to the landlord to inform them of the condition of the property and any remedial action required.
We collect rent on a calendar monthly basis, dependent on the start date of the tenancy. We pay out to landlords usually within one/two days once funds are cleared Rents are paid by direct transfer into the landlord’s account. Instructions can be taken to vary this payment date if necessary.
Repairs - Who Pays?
Repairs can be organised by our office based on the landlords instructions and are consulted regarding any amounts in excess of £250.00. We undertake to ensure all repairs are genuine and carried out by competent professionals. Full details are provided in our information packs.
