The Management charge is dependent on the number of properties we manage for them: (2017/18)

1 - 9 properties - 13% No VAT

10 - 19 properties - 11% No VAT

20+ properties - 9% No VAT

All properties on our Managed Scheme are visited and assessed before we consider taking them on to ensure they meet our minimum standards. We score each property based on set criteria such as quality of kitchen, bathroom, decor and furniture. The score then falls into a Band which has a set rent attached to it:

SAS Properties

SAS currently manages over 145 properties in Brynmill / Uplands, Sketty, Sandfields, Port Tennant and St. Thomas on behalf of private landlords.

Landlords are able to undertake specific works in the properties to achieve a higher Band and thus rent offer. This system ensures that landlords receive a fair rent for the quality of their property but also offers incentives to improve their houses to achieve the higher rent levels.

Properties are let on a 47 week full rent tenancy running from the beginning of August until the end of June. The remaining 4 weeks are for the landlords to get the properties ready for new students and the final week is for us to put all the welcome information, our signage, inventories into the properties.

The management charge doesn't include VAT as we do not charge VAT on the management service and there are no set up costs for landlords.
