Why Landlords Should Consider Property Management

Why Landlords Should Consider Property Management

As a landlord, you may be wondering whether you should manage your properties yourself, or hire a property management company. While self-management may seem like a cost-effective option, there are many benefits to hiring a property management company, like The Lettings Cloud, that you should consider. Here is why landlords should consider property management over self-management.


Time and Convenience

Managing rental properties requires a lot of time and effort, from screening tenants to handling repairs and maintenance requests. If you have a full-time job or other responsibilities, self-management can quickly become overwhelming. By hiring a property management company, you can free up your time and enjoy the convenience of having a professional team handle all aspects of property management for you. The Lettings Cloud pride themselves on providing a hassle-free, stress-free landlord life.

Tenant Screening and Placement

Finding the right tenants is crucial for the success of your rental property. Property management companies, like The Lettings Cloud, have the expertise and resources to screen potential tenants thoroughly, ensuring that you get reliable, responsible tenants who will pay rent on time and take good care of your property. The Lettings Cloud also have access to a larger pool of potential renters, which often means we can find you a tenant within days of your property is available.

Rent Collection and Financial Management

Collecting rent and managing finances is a critical aspect of property management. A property management company can handle all financial transactions, including rent collection, security deposits, and late fees. They also provide detailed financial reports, so you always know how your property is performing financially. The Lettings Cloud team are always willing to help you achieve your financial goals, and will keep track of all your finances.

Property Maintenance and Repairs

Maintaining your rental property can be time-consuming and expensive. A property management company can take care of all repairs and maintenance requests, ensuring that your property is always in good condition. They also have a network of reliable contractors and vendors which means they can negotiate lower prices for repairs and maintenance services. The Lettings Cloud have a highly skilled team of tradesmen, some of who work full-time for The Lettings Cloud, and others who are running their own business. Each specialises in their own area, meaning landlords can access the best tradesmen in the Burnley, Ribble Valley & Pendle areas to create a peaceful landlord life.

Legal Compliance and Dispute Resolution

Landlord-tenant laws are complex. A property management company is well-versed in local landlord-tenant laws and can help you avoid legal issues by ensuring that you’re in compliance with all regulations. In the event of a dispute with a tenant, a property management company can handle the situation and resolve the issue quickly and professionally. The Lettings Cloud have a great relationship with our Barrowford neighbours, Farnworth Rose, and other local solicitors to ensure our landlords have the best legal advice only a short call away.

Increased Property Value and ROI

By hiring a property management company, you can increase the value of your property and maximise your return on investment. A professional property management company can help you make informed decisions about renovations and upgrades that will increase your property’s value and appeal to potential renters.


Hiring a property management company is a wise investment for landlords. It saves time and effort, ensures quality tenants, handles financial transactions, provides maintenance and repair services, and ensures legal compliance. Additionally, it can help increase the value of your property and maximise your return on investment. By leaving property management to the professionals, you can enjoy the benefits of rental property ownership without the stress and hassle of self-management.
