Additional services for you and your tenant
To minimise your overhead during the rental period and to make your tenant feel as comfortable as possible with you we are happy to share our large network of cleaning personnel, workmen, builders, electricians, plumbers, laundry and ironing services or any other contact you might require.
Living in a furnished apartment is often due to professional reasons. The tenants move to a foreign city and are so busy in their new job that there’s little time to organise daily chores. That is when our network is very handy. As a landlord you do not have to deal with the usual questions from your tennants as they know that we will take care of things for them and your furnished space is always well maintained.
We happily assist your tenant when it comes to registering electricity, water, heat and communication services. This will make it easier for your tenant to settle in to the new environment and you don’t have to think of these things at all. Please let us know what we can help you with.
Handover and viewing appointments
If an interested party would like to view your furnished space we will coordinate a viewing appointment for you. As we thoroughly filter the pool of interested people beforehand, the amount of viewing appointments will be minimal. Should you be unable to show your space yourself, we can handle the viewing for you. Just request our corresponding service.
Handovers are important once we have found you a fitting tenant and whenever one of your tenants is moving out. During a handover the keys and deposit must be returned, the inventory must be checked, a handover protocoll signed and all the meters (electricity, gas, water) must be read and recorded. The new tenant is shown around and where necessary instructed in how to handle certain appliances or rules. We are happy to handle handovers for you, our team knows what to look out for, can help you write inventory lists and is good at instructing tenants regarding their tenant duties politely but firmly so that your furnished space is well taken care of. Our well versed and knowledgable team can answer any questions your tenant might have regarding your furnished space and the area.
Interpreter service and translations
Our competent team consists of native speakers. We speak German, English, French and Albanian.
We feel comfortable communicating with international clients and make sure that there is no language barrier. A sentence spoken in your mother tongue can make any solution simpler. A complicated sounding letter from a utility company or the house rules regarding recycling are simplified by translation.
That is what we call full service!
How can your new tenant or your handyman access your furnished space?
Of course you don’t have time to sit around in your furnished space waiting for workmen or meeting a tenant. Whoever might need a key in your opinion, whether it’s the cleaners, a handyman, or the new tenant we are happy to organise the handover of the keys for you. You can drop your keys off with us and we’ll coordinate your apointments and hand over the keys during our office hours to the people you’ve chosen. This way your keys are always in safe hands and will find their way back to you once they’re no longer needed.
Once you have agreed to a tenant we will happily write up a rental contract for you.
We’ll make sure that the contract is signed by the tenant quickly and we’ll get it to you via email.
Our rental agreement contains a handover protocoll and where needed a user agreement for the internet connection. All parts of the agreement will of course be signed by both you and the tenant.
