This comprehensive package includes the following in addition to the services detailed above as part of our Introduction-only and Let & Rental Processing services:
The Rental Guarantee Service and Legal Expenses insurance policy offers peace of mind for landlords. This ensures rental payments are still received in the event a tenant(s) default on their payments. Furthermore, a specialised legal team will regain possession of the property if the tenant does not vacate it after being served notice. This insurance covers rents on ASTs of up to £8,333/month plus legal expenses for the purposes of eviction of up to £50,000.
Further information on the Rental Guarantee Service can be obtained from our lettings team.
The following sets out a guide to how we charge for our property management services:

Please note, we do not charge an additional fee for an inventory or schedule of condition. However, if the property is furnished an additional fee will apply according to the size of the property.
A one-off fee equal to one month’s rent + VAT
A one-off fee equal to one month’s rent + VAT, followed by an ongoing fee calculated at 5% + VAT of the monthly rental
A one-off fee equal to one month’s rent + VAT, followed by an ongoing fee calculated at 12% + VAT of the monthly rental
If you have an existing tenant and require Burgess & Co to take over the rent processing or property management, the one-off fee for the service you choose is deducted.
We aim to avoid additional costs for Landlords where possible. We have therefore designed our services to include inventories and a full Schedule of Condition. However, if a property is furnished the report is more extensive and a fee is applicable as follows:
Inventory for a 1 – 2 bedroom property: £80 + VAT
Inventory for a 3 – 4 bedroom property: £120 + VAT
Inventory for a 5+ bedroom property: £150 +VAT
Please note, Burgess & Co have Client Money Protection insurance.
To renew a tenancy at the end of a fixed-term tenancy a fee of £50 inc VAT (landlord’s share) applies. This covers the administration required to prepare a new tenancy agreement and any negotiation involved.
