We provide leading expertise to support
landlords looking to rent their property.
A Trusted Local Team
SLCA’s Full Management Service includes:
- national advertising on the major property portals Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location – as well as our own website and social media
- annual rent reviews
- rent collection and clear monthly statements
- regular inspections and maintenance reports
National marketing via the top two property portals Rightmove and Zoopla – plus Primelocation, SLCA’s own website and Facebook page – ensures maximum publicity for our clients’ properties. Clear links to the SLCA website, email and telephone contact details ensure we reach as many potential tenants as possible.
Websites are now recognised as the most effective marketing method for rental properties. You can see for yourself on this site how higher quality and larger photographs provide the immediate visual impact so vital to visitors’ first impressions.Contact Us
Looking after our landlords
At SLCA we offer landlords a range of special services. For example:
- Cash flow support: SLCA can pay maintenance costs up front and recover them as an attachment on future rental income. Note: interest is payable on unpaid debit balances.
- No registration fees or up-front charges when landlords appoint SLCA as the sole agent.
- Visits to properties during untenanted periods are included in our management fee.
Service and support
We pride ourselves in providing an unrivalled level of service.
Our Responsibility to You
Founded in 1983, SLCA is a specialist letting agent for Marlborough and the surrounding area. We channel all our resources and knowledge into successful residential lettings.
Rather than outsource them to an inventory clerk, SLCA Managers compile their own written and photographic inventories. Inventory documents must be precise and comprehensive and can be critical for determining dilapidations or damage accurately and resolving end-tenancy disputes.
SLCA performs searches and reference checks on prospective tenants in house to ensure reliability and robustness. These checks include those for CCJs, bankruptcy, use of aliases, employment and previous landlords and Right to Rent.
When it’s time for them to move in, we meet your tenants at the property and emphasise to them the standards we expect throughout their occupancy. We’ll also make sure they’re familiar with things like heating controls and how appliances work, explain what to do in emergencies and have them sign the cleanliness agreement. We also take utility meter readings and submit these to the current providers.
SLCA conducts a comprehensive check-out with your tenant and will resolve any damage disputes on your behalf. If necessary, this includes forwarding reports to the arbitration service, whose decisions are legally binding and not open to appeal.
When I first approached Lesley, the owner of SLCA, to be my agent to rent my house, I was a green horn knowing nothing at all about the renting business.
She was very efficient and informative but most of all I was struck by how honest and straightforward she was and I trusted her immediately.
The fee was right, better and less expensive than anyone else in Marlborough!
Then I moved into the business of buying and selling property, which I knew a lot about. I was given great rates and an absolute sense of commitment to me that I really felt they cared. That’s a great feeling not often found in the estate agency business today.
SLCA have friendly and very approachable, professional staff, who will go to the ends of the Earth to help us find whatever we need.
Mrs J.L. | Landlord & Vendor
Lesley and her team at SLCA have acted for the past two years as property managers and Landlord agents for the house I rented on a short term assured let in Marlborough.
They could not have given better service. They were always polite, professional and efficient and were prompt to respond if ever I needed to have contact with them or to request attention to the property.
They were also always a pleasure to deal as was anyone from their extensive team of skilled service contractors who visited to make repairs or service the property. Lesley was fair and reasonable always. I would not hesitate to return to SLCA if ever I needed to rent a property again through an agent and, in my experience, Lesley and her team are the best agents in the High Street.
