Record Move Out Success For Prop Man!
 
Property Management set themselves a target to complete 219 30th June move out inspections in 21 days. All Property Managers worked flat-out (with Esther Allotey working 13 days straight).
 
The team had invaluable help from Tamas Tarlos and Harley Spence meaning they smashed their goal completing all 219 inspections by 14th July.
 
In years past, not completing move out inspections quickly has lead to unnecessary disputes and pay-outs. We've honed and perfected our procedures so things run smoothly and efficiently for our tenants and landlords.

What a wonderful and sunny weekend we had to celebrate Father's Day and Manchester Day. I'm sure the winners of our latest competition at the International Festival of Yoga in Media City also had a good time!
 
We gave away two pairs of tickets to the special event in Salford and they certainly got a good weekend for it. We saw some great engagement from our social channels.
 
The competition reached just under 8000 people, received 100 likes, comments and shares and 20 entries in just three days. That is more fantastic awareness for the homes4u brand!

Selective Licensing in Manchester and Salford

15/06/2017

Thank you again for attending our seminar last week. It was great to meet so many of our landlords and put faces to names.

 

I mentioned the Manchester City Council report which recommended the schemes under consultation. Below you can find the document that sets out the council's reasoning for selecting the areas.

 

We will inform you when the decision is announced on the schemes proposed for Old Moat, Moss Side and Rusholme, Moston and Charlestown and Lower Kersal. In the meantime, if you have any further questions or want to discuss anything relating to Licensing or the management of your properties, please contact me at keir.dawson@homes4u.co.uk.
