Landlord - Tenant Communication

Landlord and Tenant communication is done through Letgate; using our easy-to-use message system. This means that any faults or issues can be reported directly against Inventory items and everything is tracked for future reference or dispute.

Compliance Checklist and Management

Letgate subscription comes with comprehensive compliance checklists for both your Properties and Tenants. These dynamic checkists allow you to upload certificates and documentation with expiry dates – and be reminded in advance of renewal – ensuring you are never caught out. Our traffic light system gives you a quick top-level view too.

All Tenancy Documents and Information

As a Landlord, you can upload all your documents relating to a Property, Tenant or Tenancy. You can then choose what to make visible to your Tenants. This not only saves on the mountain of paperwork when checking in a Tenant, but also means that your Tenant can find everything in one place. You can even display additional information on the Property, like Wifi or Alarm codes.

Reminders of Tasks and Renewals

You will be automatically reminded in advance – by notification and by email – of anything which is about to expire, whether it be Gas Safety certificate, Tenancy Agreements or even TV License. You can even add your own reminders. These will all be visible on your online calendar too.

Auto Generated Documents - Inventory and Contracts

Need to create an Inventory, or Tenancy Agreement Contract? Our integral Inventory creation tool allows you to create a formal Inventory. It also allows live reporting by the tenant, of any issues during the Tenancy. We also have a number of common Tenancy Agreement contract templates (provided by Moore Blatch Solicitors) for you to choose from – all automatically completed for you at the click of a button.

Rent Schedule and Reminders

On setting up a new Tenancy in Letgate, an online rent-book will be created and completed with the expected rent payments for the whole Tenancy. You can mark off rent received and all of this will be visible to your Tenant. The Tenant will, of course, be reminded about expected and overdue rent.
