Diary of Award Winning Sales and Letting Agent

Landlords- We Challenge You!

We recently took on a small portfolio of properties due to the landlords wanting an easier life! The couple had looked after their investment for some 20 odd years, but now felt they would like to enjoy their daily living rather than worrying about the latest legalisation and the daily running of their portfolio.

They are not alone with the way they were thinking. I am constantly reading books, going on courses to ensure my knowledge not only remains up to date and being ahead of changes but more importantly I am making sure my landlords and tenants can rest in the knowledge they are fully compliant and we are looking after their interested.

The property industry has changed so much over the last 15 years and the private rented sector continues to grow.

The private renting levels in 2000 were around 9.4% of households, by 2014 the proportion had risen to 19.9% and by 2025 they are predicting 60% will be renters and mainly they will be in the private rented sector.

Rentals are going up. January 2016 saw 11 out of 12 regions increase their rents according to Homelet Rental Index and rents have increased by an average of 5.5% (outside London).

Great you might say, but I would like to ask you this, ‘how much is your time worth?’ The average cost of a letting agent looking after a property per month is probably no dearer than a nigh out, a ladies visit to the hairdressers or two tickets to a west end show and that is us looking after your hundreds of thousand pounds investment, your relied upon or future pension 24.7. One wrong tenant could wipe out years of profit!

Before you go to bed tonight, ask yourself what life would be like without the phone calls from tenants regarding maintenance issues, you chasing tenants for rent, checking the bank on a daily basis to see if the rent is in, you making sure you are covered by issuing the correct paperwork from the government, the deposit scheme, the Right to Rent and reside in our country paperwork, attending viewings, sourcing references, being up to date with the new rules coming in this year, next year and the year after. Give yourself a break and we challenge you to try us for a year, you won’t be sorry and you will wonder why you didn’t do it years ago.
