Credit control + Rent chasing
The potential impact of rent arrears on a landlord can be devastating. It can seriously impact their ability to pay the mortgage and if left unchecked can spiral out of control causing a great deal of stress.
Sillars have a strict, robust credit control procedure which we are proud to announce is well below the average percentage of rent arrears. Our accounts department are fully committed to working with you and your tenant to bring the account back on track and keep it there.

We have fanstastic relationships with local trades enabling us to offer fantastic services on both proactive preventative measures and efficient reactive repair measures.
Of course, you’re still very welcome to use your own contractors if you wish. We’ll still oversee the job from start to finish, liasing with the contractor of your choice.
