Whether you are an established landlord or are new to renting out a property, we can help with tailored advice and guidance to get you started.
Here is our brief introduction to selling your property and the help we can offer.
1. FREE Accurate Valuation
Our aim is to let your property at the highest possible price in the quickest possible time. All of our valuation experts have a broad knowledge of the property market both in general terms and in your specific area.
We stay ahead of changes in the market, keeping up to date with trends and other factors that can affect property prices. When you choose a free valuation, you gain access to years of experience gained from conducting valuations.
2. Selecting An Agent
It is essential that you balance the quality of service you will receive with the cost of the service. We concentrate on the individual client, making their requirements and their property the focus of our service.
We are not just property experts, we are marketing gurus. It is our marketing expertise that enables us to get the very best rental income for each and every client.
Choosing an agent with the skills and experience necessary to get you the best rental income from your property is an investment. The right agent could mean more income, every single month.
3. Short Lets
If you want to rent out your property for a limited amount of time (anything up to six months), then the short let is a great option.
A short let ensures your property is occupied for security reasons as well as providing a valuable rental income.
We can tailor our service to meet your needs; if required, we can secure your rent up-front by reliable professional tenants and arrange comprehensive property management for added peace of mind.
4. High End Property Management
Property management is an extremely valuable service for any landlord.
With property management in place, the day-to-day management of the property is completely taken care of so there is no need to worry about the condition of the property or the status of the tenants.
Tenants are often prepared to pay more for a property that is managed professionally as it gives them the reassurance that any queries or issues that arise will be dealt with in a timely, professional manner.
5. Presenting The Property
We don’t need to tell you that the presentation of your property is of the utmost importance when it comes to achieving the rental outcome you want.
We can provide advice on the impression your property makes, both during the valuation stage and when we receive feedback from prospective tenants who have viewed the property.
We make the most of your property with professional photography, producing a range of pictures that highlight the most marketable features of the property.
6. Before The Tenancy Begins
Prior to the tenant actually entering the property and the tenancy beginning, there are certain things that have to be taken care of.
We can help make sure that you have met all your legal obligations and that both landlord and tenant are fully protected, so you can get on with your life and the tenant can quickly settle into the property.
7. Marketing Your Property
Our marketing methods are multi-stream; from great window displays and print media to more modern approaches including a high-traffic website, search engine optimisation and social media.
We reap the benefits of this on a daily basis as it allows us to give our clients something that money cannot buy – access to an extensive database of prospective clients willing to pay more for tenancies in our properties.
All of our viewings are undertaken with a trained member of staff on hand; all our prospective tenants are accompanied by a qualified expert who can help guide them through the property and provide instant answers to their questions.
We are available whenever it suits both the landlord and the prospective client to conduct a viewing.
We ensure that your property is never left unattended and that our prospective tenants are never unaccompanied. Safety for our tenants and security for the landlord are always paramount.
9. Viewing Feedback
Keeping you up to date, with honesty and transparency, is one of our key commitments.
Feedback is so important. It educates and informs both us as the agents and you as the landlord and this information can be used to boost the probability of securing a fast, reliable tenancy.
We make a point of asking for feedback from prospective tenants. Then we actively report this feedback back to the client without delay, along with any advice we feel is necessary.
10. The Offer
We will tell you as soon as we receive confirmation of interest from the tenant, letting you know if they have any specific requests, questions or conditions that may influence your decision to accept or reject the offer.
We carry out in-depth reference checks on all tenants, including credit checks, obtaining employer and previous landlord references, 3 months bank statements, 3 months payslips, utility bill and proof of I.D. Once they have successfully passed all of our checks, we arrange for the signing of tenancy agreement and the collection of any initial monies due.
We can arrange for the inventory and as well as obtaining household appliance tests and gas safety certification, where applicable.
10. On-going Support
The initial process might be complete, but that doesn’t mean our commitment to you ends.
We can manage the property to whatever degree works best for you; you can be as involved or as uninvolved as you choose.
We are always available to talk over any issues that may arise or any queries you may have; there is no issue too trivial to bring to our attention. We are fully committed to providing the level of service you expect from the moment you first contact us.
