As the landlord, you have a duty of care to maintain the property and to check that the tenant is looking after things for you, why not pick up a bottle of something or take a bottle of milk, make it a social visit, you’ll have happier tenants…
As the landlord, in most cases (depending upon what is written in the Tenancy agreement), you will be responsible unless proved deliberate for most if not all repairs.
Take a look in the TSP directory, there’s a specific category all about reference checking.
Take a look on portals and what has sold/let around you, this will give you the closest opinion you’ll need.
With more and more elaborate and sophisticated hoaxers, there are many ways that you can protect yourself, your property will be registered with land registry, in which case, give them your email, so if anyone tries to meddle with your documents, you’ll know about it.
This totally depends upon what you have agreed with the buyer/tenant, it’s advisable to give some time to allow the process to start, you’ve both given time to the process, make sure to ask the right questions, to get the answers you want.
There are no commissions or fees payable to UcaDO for transacting/listing your property, there may be associated TSP costs if you chose to use them.
During your sale/let UcaDO will prompt you at crucial points in your journey to speak with the removal company to best assist your move.
UcaDO will prompt you at just the right time within your listing or transaction, to engage and instruct a solicitor.
UcaDO has a number of TSP’s within the directory who all specialise in Tenancy Deposit Schemes, some are the more modern approach the others the original TDS schemes.
We use the same servers and world banks and the same encryption as Twitter, Uber, Airbnb and Facebook.
The buyer/tenant will make appointments directly with you as the owner, if you would like to use the TSP directory to find a Host, they are there and raring to help you, if not – accept the viewing because, let’s be honest, no one knows your property as well as you do.
You absolutely can, though be mindful of any terms the agent has made you sign, we won’t charge you a penny for the sale/listing, but they may, even when you have agreed the sale and done the viewings yourself, having found your buyer through UcaDO.
There’s no real way you can, unfortunately, but it should be halted or flagged when it reaches the legal stage.
At the moment, we are gathering a lot of information about them. We are looking at user reviews, perhaps even calling their customers as well. We will also be monitoring UcaDO user reviews – and contacting TSP’s if they receive negative reviews as well as the UcaDO user who gave the review.
We went with iOS first because it is the most rigorously tested app store. We expect it to be on Android by December.
It’s an app – a free peer-to-peer property marketplace -without the need for a middleman or agents. We’re not saying agents are bad, but there are a number of people who would like to do it themselves. As well as connecting humans, we also offer them access to a wide range of service providers that could be needed.
