Landlord Fees

Sinclair Properties only offer a fully managed service. We do not offer a 'Let Only' or 'Rent Only Collection Service'. 

Our fees structure is as follows. 

One-off initial set-up fee of £450.00 (+ VAT).

Management commission of 12% (+ VAT)

Management commission of 12.5% (+ VAT) for landlords of licensable HMO's who live overseas.

Tenancy deposit protection fee of £33.00 (+VAT) per tenancy (not per tenant).

Tenancy renewal fee of £70.00 (+ VAT) per new tenant moving in. No fee is charged for existing tenants renewing their tenancy.

Maintenance work:
£20.00 (+ VAT) per hour Monday to Friday 9am - 6pm. 
£40.00 (+VAT) per hour for all emergency call-outs outside normal office hours

These hourly rates exclude parts and only become effective after any allocated free hours have been used up. Each house is allocated 'FREE' maintenance hours depending on its size. The larger the house the more FREE hours.

There are no fees for many of the services that other agents routinely charge for.  eg.
