Why Letâ€Ś In recent years the lettings market has changed beyond all recognition. The biggest legislative change was made with the 1988 Housing Act, which brought with it the Assured Shorthold Tenancy and revolutionised the market. More and more investors have entered the residential lettings market looking for a safe form of long term investment given the uncertainties in the world of finance and pensions. Homeowners have chosen to let rather than sell their property in order to avoid realising their equity losses. If you are a professional landlord or you are considering a buy-to-let investment we can offer free advice on the best way to finance it. Many lenders now offer specialist buy-to-let mortgages and we can find the best deal for you. Not only do we shop around on your behalf but the lender pays our fee so our service costs you nothing. If you are a homeowner / landlord our expertise and professionalism will help smooth the way and get you on the move with the minimum of hassle. Successful rental investment comprises three main factors â€“ long term capital growth, maximum rent and maximum occupancy. Long term growth is determined by economic factors beyond the control of agents and landlords - but our professionalism and energy will help you maximise your rental figure by reducing marketing time and minimising void periods by quickly finding reliable, trustworthy tenants!

Letting your propertyâ€Ś Preparing your property to rent Increasing the desirability of your property by presenting it in the best possible way will maximise your rental figure by reducing marketing time and minimising void periods. It is important that the property looks inviting to prospective tenants. We recommend proper cleaning before marketing. It is a condition of the tenancy that it is left in the same state at the end of the tenancy as it was started - so this is a worthwhile investment. The rooms should be free from clutter with only the fixtures and fittings that are to be left for use by the incoming tenant on display. We recommend a choice of neutral colours for the decor. We have approved contractors for cleaning, decorating and general repair if required. The property can be let either furnished or unfurnished. In either case, it should have curtains and carpets where applicable. Where a property is to be let furnished, it should have the appropriate number of beds, wardrobes and chests of drawers. The kitchen must have white goods and the extent of these is a major factor in tenants paying the highest rental values. For example, many tenants look for microwave ovens and tumble dryers in addition to the standard equipment. Crockery, cutlery and kitchen utensils are essential as is a table at which to eat. Quality bathrooms are also important. Finding a suitable tenant quickly is the best way to maximise rental income - here is how we do itâ€Ś
Advertising and Promotion Despite the increasing use of the internet traditional media still serves as an important source of prospective tenants. We use traditional advertising in a range of publications: Local Newspapers, Directories and Magazines - backed up with local networking and work in our local community. We have excellent relations with the editorial departments of the local press, often resulting in useful exposure within the property supplements. Where agreed necessary national advertising can be arranged. Prominent Office Location Eye catching window displays and an inviting office environment for buyers to discuss their property needs creates a selling atmosphere. Our centrally located offices provide the perfect backdrop to promote your property. We are fortunate to be located on a busy high street with good footfall alongside interesting shops. Website, Internet Portals, Webmail Internet exposure is now a key element in a successful marketing programme and we continue to see year on year growth with our internet initiatives. In addition to our own successful website, all our properties feature on the most popular property portals. We have an ongoing webmail campaign which sees above market average readership and click through. We vary our web presence from month to month to maximise its value to our clients.
New Media and Texting Social networking provides a small but relevant marketing process for high tech purchasers.
Network referrals Our long standing relationship with major relocation agents provide us with an opportunity to introduce additional top quality buyers registered exclusively on their books. Property Details High quality property details and professionally printed brochures are our opportunity to provide prospective tenants with the best possible insight into your property. Our new contemporary presentations include variously: colour images, location map, floor plan and useful information to assist with their decision making process.
Tenant Selection All viewing appointments are accompanied by an experienced member of the lettings team. At this point we often get a good feel for the tenants and advise accordingly. Once a tenant agrees to rent a property, a holding deposit is taken together with referencing fees. An independent, specialist company who report to us on the suitability of the tenant seeks references. These findings are of course reported to you for your approval. Each tenant is assessed on the basis ofâ€Ś Employment reference Previous Landlord reference where applicable Search of public records for evidence of previous address and credit score Students are required to provide a guarantor who is referenced separately and who is obliged to sign a guarantors agreement Once we have finalised all the details of the tenancy, we will arrange for all parties to sign the agreement and collect one months advance rent together with a security deposit, equivalent to six weeks rent prior to release of keys. This will be collected in advance of any occupation and returned, subject to any deductions, after the tenancy has expired.

For Sale Boards For maximum impact our distinctive â€˜For Saleâ€™ board will market your property 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Prospective buyers often house hunt with area drive-bys so a distinctive signboard is an important selling tool Local Advertising Despite the increasing use of the internet the local newspaper still serves as an important source of prospective buyers. A prominent local advertising campaign is included within our fee structure. We have excellent relations with the editorial departments of the local press, often resulting in useful exposure within the property supplements. Where agreed necessary national advertising can be arranged. Website, Internet Portals, Webmail Internet exposure is now a key element in a successful marketing programme and we continue to see year on year growth with our internet initiatives.

Network referrals Our long standing relationship with major relocation agents provide us with an opportunity to introduce additional top quality buyers registered exclusively on their books.
Accompanied Viewings We are pleased to make accompanied viewings with experienced staff by arrangement. Open House For some properties where we anticipate unusually strong demand we will recommend an Open House. It is a simple and effective means to show house a property to a collection of viewers within a specified hour on one set day. This method stimulates buyer activity and competing bids. Low Key Marketing Some customers prefer a more low profile approach to selling their home. With this in mind we can arrange for key applicants to view your property prior to full marketing and exposure. This popular service can generate valuable feedback and interest without the commitment of our high profile campaign. A successful conclusion Each appointment with a prospective purchaser is always followed up with honest, constructive feedback. Any offers on your property will be given verbally and in writing with details of the buyers current circumstances. Our dedicated team of staff are in constant communication with solicitors, other estate agents, building societies, buyers and sellers. We realise this final period is often the most stressful part of the move so progress reports are provided on a regular basis. We believe this communication is crucial to the successful completion of every sale.
