  • paragraph

  • paragraph

    Range Of Services
    From simply finding you a fully referenced tenant to guaranteeing your rent even on an empty property, we have a service to suit you. Please call us to find out more.
  • paragraph

    Ask about our Guaranteed Rent Service

    If the property is vacant or the tenant fails to pay the rent you will still get paid on the agreed date. You will know exactly how much rent you will receive on exactly what date each month for the duration of the contract. This provides you with peace of mind that your own financial commitments are covered. There is no need to make a claim-just a simple guarantee that your rent will be paid on time.

    NO VOIDS

    Our Guaranteed Rent service means that you still get paid for the duration of the contract even if the property becomes empty. We take the burden of the risk on so you don't have to worry about that. We can agree contract periods of anything from 12 months to 5 years dependant on the property type.

    NO FEES - NO COMMISSION

    There are no fees to the landlord for setting up the contract or finding the tenant. No commissions and no hidden extras.

    WE HANDLE THE TENANTS

    You can kiss goodbye to those out of hours calls from tenants for leaks or broken boilers. We deal directly with the tenants at all times. We will organise the maintenance on your behalf using our trusted and vetted contractors.

    SAME PAYMENT DATE EVERY MONTH

    So that you are able to plan your finances we guarantee to pay you the rent on the same day every month (excluding weekends and bank holidays). No more uncertainty for you as you can rest assured that as your professional tenants we will pay the rent on time.

    LEGAL COSTS COVERED

    If the tenant in the property needs to be evicted for rent arrears then we will cover the legal costs involved in doing so whilst you continue to receive your rent. We handle the whole process so you don't have the worry of this time consuming matter.

  • paragraph

    HMO Management

    At Charles David Casson we specialise in the management of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) and room rentals. We are one of the only agents who have an interest and experience of HMO Management in Chelmsford. We already manage a number of HMO's around Chelmsford and we are actively looking for more HMO's to supply the huge demand we have for rooms and shared accommodation. All our tenants are working professionals and we only look after high quality HMO's in Chelmsford and surrounding areas. We now have a reputation in the city as the "go to" agent for rooms to rent for both tenants and landlords alike. We have recently launched our "All Inclusive" brand to specifically cater for shared accommodation in Chelmsford.

    HMO management is a very different skill to the management of single lets and is generally a lot more time consuming and demanding. We are experienced and knowledgeable regarding the management of HMO regulations and the licensing criteria for these properties. We are able to advise on whether or not your HMO will require a licence and the various other safety regulations that come with HMO's including fire safety etc and planning regulations.

    An HMO is a great way to maximise returns on a property but it must be managed correctly to ensure it is compliant with the law and most importantly your tenants are happy and living in a safe environment. We have the experience and knowledge to attract professional tenants fast, keep the occupancy rate high and minimise voids and keep a happy house by managing tenant relationships. HMO's are a business and need managing like a business and we do just that for our clients.

    If you already own HMO's and are tired of the day to day management or you are thinking of buying an HMO and would like help with finding tenants and managing the property then please contact us to see how we can help you have an enjoyable investment with maximum returns.

    We also offer a tenant find service for people looking to rent their room out in Chelmsford to a lodger etc.
