The rental market is growing at a significant pace and new homes are the catalyst in meeting this requirement. Developers turn to Build to Rent (BTR) and Private Rented Sector (PRS) properties to create purpose-built units aimed specifically for this market. Take a look at the build to rent property & asset management services we offer below:
Seraph Property Management currently provides a wide range of management services, including residential property management, block management and commercial management. We understand the changing demand of the rental market and that developers are looking for more, with this in mind, we have created Seraph Property+. Take advantage of our additional features that are designed specifically for those residents wanting a ‘lifestyle’ and not a rental, in carefully thought-out apartments. You can choose to adopt the Seraph Property+ brand or we can assist in creating a unique brand with your build-to-rent portfolio.
Should landlords and developers have created additional amenities to offer premium living to their residents, we, in turn, support these concepts with other features. These features can be tailored to each portfolio or block and our experience in Block Management allows us to plan and manage these features efficiently.
Homeownership is not necessarily the tenure of choice for the many people looking to match their home with other aspects of their service-led lifestyle. This has created a gap in the market for the long term rental market and build to rent schemes. People see this as a financially viable option, but look to have the flexibility and benefits of owning a home. There is a growing need where residents are willing to pay a ‘premium price’ for a ‘premium service’. In addition, residents seek rented accommodation that will make their living experience as comfortable as possible as they look to stay for a couple of years. We work with the landlord and developer to agree clearer boundaries to give us authority to act quickly on areas that other landlords and agents do not. There are often barriers which create friction around the speed and type of maintenance that will be carried out, the length of tenancy and issues around deposit disputes. Pre-agreeing and resourcing these ensures that the tenant receives a premium ‘hotel-like’ experience.
We will work with you to design a ‘lifestyle concept’ around your target audience, looking at workout, relaxation and working spaces within the development. Offering the resident as many amenities as possible to make them feel comfortable. If the current development can’t provide these amenities then we utilise our partnerships with external services to provide a bolt-on service.
In the virtual world, we live in, we can provide as many online facilities as you desire. As a Seraph Property+ client you can benefit from an online reservation system, where applicants can secure an apartment and complete the move-in process online. We can also provide a Resident portal so they can pay they rent easy, see any outstanding balances, report maintenance and have one place to access all their important documents relating to their home.
We can provide ‘Meet and Greet’ and introductory walk-through of the property and a ‘move-in’ hamper provided to the new resident, to make the move-in process as comfortable as possible. We can also help set up, internet, TV packages and utilities ready for when the new resident moves in.
We can facilitate an on-site concierge service, which can be daytime or around-the-clock, whilst also being able to carry out speedy repairs on-site and within apartments. In addition, can provide laundry services, weekly cleaning and car clubs for the residents.
Seraph can set-up and effectively manage a ‘stress-free’ renting process for the resident. Offering no up front-fees, deposit-free options, pet-friendly tenancies and flexible contracts (no tie-ins).
