2020 bought with it a plethora of challenges.
This included many reasons from revised laws and the necessary regulations bought about by Covid 19. Even with the optimism of a vaccine, these regulations are likely to impact for a large part of this year and beyond, therefore landlords, more than ever, need the experience and lettings expertise that can be found within a professional letting agency
Why work with an agent?
Working with an agent takes off the pressure and offers peace of mind that everything is being done to the highest standard and within the law at every stage.
How to find suitable tenants?
As a landlord, finding new tenants is the hardest and most crucial part of your letting project.
Filling an empty property quickly and ensuring that rent is paid is the initial priority; long term, it’s essential to find tenants that respect and value your property and have sufficient income to maintain regular and timely rental payments.
As an agent we are fully-equipped to quickly react if a tenant ends their tenancy – at the same time assessing the rental value of your property and ensuring it is represented at its best to prospective tenants. In some cases, we may have the perfect tenant waiting for a property just like yours.
Once an ideal tenant has been found, we can quickly put all the legalities in place, carrying out credit checks to ensure that the potential tenant is an ideal long-term fit for your property.
Dealing with changes caused by Covid-19
Lockdowns (national and regional)
Lockdowns can be a challenge if you don’t live in the same region as your rented property; however by working with local agents like ours, there will always be somebody that can visit the property and carry out Covid safe inspections and viewings.
