Professional property letting is more straightforward to understand than pensions and more tangible than stocks and shares. We’ve created a quick run-down of buy-to-let advice to help any landlord understand their investment.
Deciding how involved you want to be
Being a landlord can be as hands-on (or off) as you like. When deciding what level of support you need, be guided by the amount of time you can dedicate to your let, and how much specialist knowledge you have. If you’d like a letting professional by your side, we’d be happy to help with the numbers, sourcing property and marketing—just a few of our many letting services.
Attract the best tenants
You’ll want to set the rent to attract the right tenants and present your property, so it stands out among other listings. We can show you examples of what’s working well in the current lettings market.
Always safety first
Compliance is a hot topic in lettings. There are over 100 rules and regulations in place to protect landlords and tenants. When you use our full management service, we’ll take care of compliance on your behalf, ensuring your let is legally compliant from day one.
Make it a seamless rental ride
Stringent referencing finds reliable tenants, but you can add extra safeguarding with a professional check-in, inventory, mid-term inspection and check-out programme. If you’re keen to avoid 3 am calls about a burst pipe, you can also handover planned and emergency maintenance to us.
At the end of the tenancy
When a tenancy ends, it’s up to you what happens next. Your options include agreeing on a new lease with the current tenant, re-marketing the property if your tenant wants to move out or sell the property if your circumstances have changed. We can help you in all three of these situations for seamless care.
