Bristol Property FAQ's

Frequently asked questions

Which deposit scheme do you use? We use the DPS custodial scheme as standard when registering the tenants security deposit. If you as the landlord would like to register with your own scheme we are more then happy to work our service around this.

When can i expect to have my rent paid into my account? This will be paid into your designated account the same day that we receive this and in line with the agreement. Most of our contracts are from the 1st of the month but this is flexible if you would like your rent paid on a certain day.

Does JBS Bristol offer a rent guarantee scheme? We are able to offer this this service but would not actively encourage this as we have a very high standard of references for our tenants and if the rent is not in on the due date from the tenant we would cover this expense ourselves and then chase the tenant to recover the funds so that the landlord gets their rent on the due date.

How often will my rental property be inspected? Our managed properties are inspected quarterly throughout the year and you will receive reports and pictures and any issues will be raised and resolved in a proactive and efficient manner.

What kind of costs can I expect for a contractor call out? We never add anything on top of the bill from the contractor and most of the time there is no charges for quotes only if the work is completed. For minor jobs which we are able to do in house this would be completed free of charge as covered by the managed fee.

Whats the average void period between tenancies? For our managed properties we have zero void period unless major refurbishment works are being carried out, we would start marketing and secure tenants to start their tenancy immediately after the previous one.

Do I need to do anything differently if I am an overseas landlord? As long as you complete the NRL1 exemption form, we will be able to send you your rent without deducting any tax. The rest of the process is the same.

Can you advise on Buy 2 Let properties in Bristol? We are more than happy to send you recommendations and have a chat about areas throughout the Bristol property market.
