    Incentives for good tenants.

    Just wondered if you have considered/provided an incentive to good tenants renewing their contract?

    I'm thinking a voucher for a meal out or something for the property.

    Maybe the hard nosed business types out there will say no way but as an investment in a good tenant it could pay for itself many times over.

    Absolutely perfect tenant - there for 3 years.
    Same here and on their birthdays, as well.
    ASSUME NOTHING - QUESTION EVERYTHING!

      Nah, surely not. A moving out present? The incentive I was thinking was a way of say 'Thanks for being good tenants over the last year, I look forward to another year of the same'

      Paragon they get a birthday presents? Hope you haven't got many HMO's you'll need shares in Clinton Cards.

      Just to expand on my thinking ... I've been reviewing my financial affairs and stripping out the dead wood. What I mean by that is changing tariffs on phones, remortgaging, broadband etc etc.

      On each occasion I've been put through to a re tensions person. They have offered all sorts of incentives to keep me as a customer. My reaction, 'If you wanted to keep my custom then you should have been proactive in keeping it'. It's quite probable that I would stay with a company that wasn't the cheapest but were prepared to show the value of my custom in some small way. Hence where we came in, an incentive for a tenant.

            Hi Tweedle Dum,

            Impressive with Rent Breaks indeed, so long as you can get your Mortgage Lender to do the same to you then pass it on to your Tennent!!!! Joker!!

              I agree with one of the other posts, Company A should have sorted the whole job, it sounds like a 10 mins job with maybe a collar for the pipework being tightened up and then some basthroom sealant ...........you are right.......... just under a ' monkey'' (Arthur Daley speak) for what is a simple pipe...

              We have a London flat managed by an agent (full management service).

              My husband and I were abroad, and got a call from the council saying the property was leaking sewage into the flat below. We contacted our agent immediately who sent someone around the same day (Company A).

              What does your agreement (or terms & conditions sent) with this say about such queries, please? I'd start there first & then probably their complaints process (if they have one)

              Is this the lettings agent on the block (of flats) management agent please?

              I humbly note...

              The pipework was found to be sound. I think Company A were there as an emergency "see if it's sewage and shut off the water if necessary". They said it was a pipework problem and a sealant problem. Company B carried out a full audit on the pipes and found it was only a sealant problem....

              The letting agent engaged all of them. We gave them an instruction to fix whatever the problem was after the notification from the council there was a problem - we pay for a full management service.

              I doubt the agency will give us money back because they've paid it out directly to the contractor,...

              In November 1979 BoE base rate hit 17% under Thatcher's government. My building society was kind by only raising their rates to 15%.....

              IMHO rates will continue to rise. Sorry.
