We understand you will be finding it a worrying time and are concerned about receiving rental payments from your tenant(s) going forward. At smarthomes Lettings we wanted to reassure our landlords that we are here to support you.
You may have seen the announcement from Government on how landlords and tenants will be supported during the Coronavirus pandemic. We are still waiting for further detail, but we are here to help you.
We are writing to all tenants asking them to keep lines of communication open with us should they face difficulties paying their rent and advising them of the need to claim Statutory Sick Pay and Universal Credit if they are eligible.
We will liaise with the tenant should they be unable to meet rental payments on your behalf and will provide our expertise to help you get through this national emergency.
For now, adhering to government guidelines on preventing the spread of infection, we will not be attending any routine property inspections or tenanted property for viewings.
Our office will be closing from 23rd March 2020 but ALL the team will be available via telephone or email as usual.
Thank you for working with us during this difficult time.
Amanda Dodd – Lettings Director
