Selective Licensing Specialist
Whether you are a professional property developer, an astute investor building a mixed investment portfolio, a senior citizen relying on rental income, or an accidental landlord letting a property you inherited or once lived in, RPC is here to help you.
Our only business is letting residential property, and we devote all our resources, energy and knowledge to property management. In an ideal world letting property would be an armchair investment where regular returns simply land in the bank. Realistically letting to tenants is an active business that requires hands on management and local presence to collect rents, carry out property inspections, vet tenants and keep regular contact with them, deal with repair issues, keep an eye on tenant’s benefits and changing circumstances, liaise with Local Councils and Universal Credit, and be on 24 hour emergency callout.
Here at RPC we pride ourselves in helping landlords profit from their investment, and deal primarily with mid-range to difficult properties housing tenants on benefits. We can guide Landlords through the changing legislation to make sure they comply with legal requirements (such as selective licensing), including landlord licensing in the licensing areas. We also help landlords with insurance claims when required and can provide unbiased advice on investments in the areas we manage. This ranges from Colne, Nelson, Burnley and Accrington along the M65/M61 corridor to include Bolton, Wigan and areas all the way to Salford.
