Wouldn’t it be great to find the perfect tenant for your property? One that stays long-term, always pays their rent, takes care of your property and never complains? We can be that perfect tenant for you.
How does it work?
We meet you at your property for a free no obligation viewing. We make you an offer within 24 hours of viewing your property. If you accept our offer we become your tenant. We provide you with a legal agreement setting out the rental terms. We take over the management of the house and fill it with our professional tenants. You receive your guaranteed rent for up to 5 years with no hidden fees and charges paid by standing order into your bank every single month. We return your house to you in great condition at the end of the agreement.

You will receive your rent every month for up to five years

Some Frequently Asked Questions by Landlords wanting to work with us
What is Serene Property Solutions responsible for?
We are responsible for:
- Paying you your agreed rent each and every month.
Filling the house with our professional tenants,
Ensuring all of the utilities and council tax are paid,
Hiring a cleaner (and a gardener if needed) to take care of the communal areas and garden.
Being the contact point for the tenants if they have any problems.
Am I responsible for anything at all once the agreement is signed?
Our job is to remove those responsibilities from your shoulders. The only time you should ever need to be involved is if there is structural/exterior work that needs doing to your property (such as roof tiles and structural soundness). We take care of all legalities relating to the management of the property, such as fire safety and heat/smoke/carbon monoxide alarms. We also take care of the council tax and utility bills. You will only be responsible for normal landlord maintenance such as gas safety checks, PAT test on your own electrical appliances, maintaining the hot water system, radiators and other water systems, etc. Our contract will fully clarify our responsibilities along with yours.
What fees do you charge me?
There are no fees, believe it or not! We don’t charge monthly commission, tenant finders fees, or high management fees, and there are no hidden charges either. We make our money from being able to charge a premium to our tenants for providing comfortable rooms in a stylish home, inclusive of all bills.
Once I have signed a contract with you, will I have any involvement with my property?
This is entirely up to you. Once we are managing your property you are of course welcome to visit the property for quarterly inspections, or not to visit at all if that is what you’d prefer. Either way, we will pay you your rent every month and keep you regularly updated on inspections and any maintenance required, including gas safety checks. So you can have the peace of mind of guaranteed rent and a well maintained property.
Will I still make the same amount of money as usual?
Yes! And it will be guaranteed and without any fees or bills deducted. The amount of rent, the date it is paid into your account, and the time period of the contract will all be agreed between us when the contracts are signed.
How will I get paid?
Your rent will be paid on time every month via a standing order direct to your bank account. We pay our rents on the first of every month for the duration of our contract.
How does Serene Property Solutions make its money?
Unlike letting agents, we do not charge you any fees or commissions for finding tenants. We earn our money from our tenants that we put into the house. We only house professional tenants from local companies, providing quality housing with flexible length terms, which enables us to receive an uplift on the monthly rent.
Is this sub-letting?
No not at all. Serene Property Solutions would not have an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) with the owner of the property. The AST is the contract that disallows sub-letting and would not be appropriate in this situation. The contract that we use has been drawn up by a solicitor specifically for this type of rental agreement.
How long are the contracts?
We only take on long-term contracts of between 3 to 5 years. We would come to an agreement with you at the beginning of the contract about the length of the contract. When our contract with you is approaching the end of the term we will contact you regarding renewing the contract with you for a further term, or perhaps even discuss an option to buy the property at some point in the future.
Does Serene Property Solutions pay a deposit?
No, we don’t pay deposits. However we do complete light refurbishments of properties where needed, and repair fixtures and fittings and dress the property to an high standard. We maintain all the properties we manage to a very high standard throughout our contracts, keeping on top of all maintenance issues as soon as they arise. We do collect individual deposits from our tenants and register these with DPS (Deposit Protection Service) for the duration of their stay to safeguard against any potential damages to the property, which in turn protects you and your property.
What does a light refurbishment include?
Where needed we complete light refurbishment to the properties we take on. This can entail painting and decorating, some re-arrangement or replacement of existing furniture, giving kitchens and bathrooms a face lift, dressing rooms with ornaments, artwork and soft furnishings etc, and sometimes converting second reception rooms into bedrooms.
Does the property need to be furnished?
No. We take on a variety of properties from fully furnished to completely unfurnished properties. As we provide our professional tenants with high quality accommodation. sometimes, the existing furniture in the property might not be suitable and we may need to ask you to remove it.
How do I know my property won’t get damaged?
We are very choosy about the tenants we accommodate. We only house working professionals and we always do thorough checks with employers and credit checks on every tenant. We carry out regular property inspections. We employ cleaners and gardeners to ensure the property is beautifully maintained, and we always carry out minor repairs at our cost throughout the duration of our contract. Our properties are often in better condition once we’ve finished with them than they were when we took them over!
Will I have to pay for any damages caused by the tenant?
No. We will cover these should they occur and pass the cost on to our tenant.
Do you have your own tradespeople?
Yes, we have a team of fully qualified and trusted tradespeople whom we use for maintenance and general repairs. But if you’d prefer to use your own trusted tradespeople, that’s okay too.
Will I have to deal with problem tenants?
No! We deal with our tenants and resolve any issues all you have to do is sit back and receive your rent every month.
What if a tenant doesn’t pay, will I still get my rent?
Yes. We guarantee to pay you your agreed rent on time every single month regardless of any of our tenants non-payment. The tenants are our problem, not yours.
How do you ensure all of your tenants get along?
We always meet every potential tenant in person and carry out thorough reference checks . If we feel that the person would not be a good fit with the other tenants in the house, we will not offer them a tenancy. We want everyone to be happy and we pride ourselves on offering a premium renting experience. It’s important to us that we have happy tenants, happy managers and happy landlords.
Which areas do you currently take properties?
We are currently sourcing suitable properties in Chichester, Bognor, Littlehampton and Worthing.
What types of property do you deal with?
We are interested in properties of all types and sizes, although three to six bedroom houses tend to work best for our purposes. Our aim is to offer high quality, comfortable accommodation as long or short term stays for working professionals. Things such as parking or a big garden don’t always matter. If you’re unsure whether your property fits our criteria, why not contact us for a no obligation chat.
How many properties can you manage?
Providing the property meets our requirements, we have the scope and resources to successfully manage multiple properties at any one time.
Would you consider taking on multiple houses from my portfolio?
Yes, we certainly would. We will happily offer our same procedure for as many properties you might have, provided they meet our criteria.
I have some friends who are also landlords, could you help them too?
Yes we could. And when you recommend a friend we’ll pay you a referral bonus of £200 for every property we take on!
How quickly could Serene Property Solutions rent my property?
First we would meet with you so you can tell us what you want from your property and we can establish if our service will be a good fit for you. Then we would view your property, after which we will make you an offer within 48 hours based on local market conditions in your area. The price and terms agreed at this stage will be the price we pay for the duration of the contract regardless of whether the property is tenanted or not. Depending on the properties’ current condition we may require a month or so to carry out any refurbishment, but if your property is vacant and ready for our purposes we could be signing contracts and paying your first month’s rent the next day!
What if my circumstances change and I want to get my house back?
Unexpected things happen in life – we get this, and we’re always willing to be understanding and flexible wherever we can. We can put a break clause in our contracts, but we’ll also need to ensure we treat everyone correctly, including our tenants living in the property. We must be able to allow them enough time to leave, and for us to serve the correct notices regulated by law. We ask our landlords to give us a minimum of six months’ notice if they do not intend on renewing our contract at the end of term, and we’ll do the same. We ask for this length of notice in order to allow our tenants to find new homes without the added stress of having to do it in a short time frame. If we have invested money into your home to upgrade it, there may be a percentage of that cost that you’ll have to refund back to us. This is all clearly explained in our management agreement.
