18 The Product

19 Property Management

20 “Back in the mid 1990’s we could not find a management company we liked or trusted… so we started our own” As investors ourselves, we instinctively know what’s important

21 Management – what makes us different One fee Investors, landlords, tenants. 95% Occupancy * No 1 issue for landlords Tenant loyalty scheme Out of hours viewings We pre-let flats Rent Payment If tenants pay late, we still pay landlords on 15 th ** Add value e.g. video inventories, Co2 neutral, 24hr emergency repairs, property e-tours “ As investors ourselves, we took all the things that annoyed us … and did the opposite” * From year 2 ** 1st month only)

22 We invest in people, training and systems Systems New phone system records all calls (Quality and training) New £300k property system due early 2008 People We invest heavily in training (ARLA, service, sales) One point of contact … investment and account manager Behind the scenes we take care of everything from accounts, marketing, safety, compliance, repairs and inspections

25 £’000 Year Assumes average capital appreciation of 10% pa Finance

26 Performance – how to maximise Bank gearing gives tax and performance benefits Interest rates are still low Gross yields are 6% min Rental demand rising. A 5% rise in property values means a 25% return, if geared to 80% LTV

27 Risks Property prices could fall Occupancy cannot be guaranteed Interest rates could rise … have a fallback. Do not invest 100%
