We can find the right tenants and manage everything from the day-to-day running of your property or portfolio, to legal aspects, health & safety and rent collection, so you don't have to.
Our let only service includes a rental valuation, property advertising and marketing and we'll also arrange any viewings and transport for applicants. We try to make the sign up process simple by collecting deposit and references, carrying out Right to Rent checks and preparing tenancy agreements. This service covers everything for you right up until move in day.
Our management service includes all the benefits of let only, plus extra support and guidance that will ensure your property is compliant and make your life as a landlord easier for the duration of tenancies. From repairs and maintenance, to inspections and end of tenancy checkouts, we can manage the day to day running of your property from start to finish. We're also always looking to help our landlords to improve their rental yields, and we use our inspections as an opportunity to highlight any areas for improvement or any opportunities for refurbishment works.
Benefits of our full management service
The benefit of our full property management is that every element of managing rental property can be covered – it’s a top to bottom service that alleviates the stress and responsibility of being a landlord. There's also a greater sense of professionalism when using a managing agent – doing so lessens the probability of tenants taking advantage or landlords making financial decisions that perhaps shouldn’t be made. Added to this, there's so much involved when it comes to being a landlord these days, and keeping up with changes in legislation can be tricky. As members of PropertyMark, we're made well aware of any potential changes well in advance and are able to make any transitions smooth for our landlords.
When it comes to property management and refurbishments, we like to do things a bit differently. Unlike most agents, we have dedicated Property Supervisors to look after our landlord’s properties and we project manage refurbishment works from instruction to completion. We offer a completely bespoke service, which can include property inspections, preparation of budgets, advising on rents and returns, applying for any planning permissions or building control, managing supplier contracts, handling payment of invoices, and health and safety checks.
We offer a completely bespoke property sourcing service, as the buy-to-let market is on the rise. Recently, we've seen the demand for decent rental properties outstripping supply. For example, this year, we have obtained rental increases of over 21% in some cases for our landlords, compared with the regional average of 6.6%. We're seeing a perfect storm of increased demand and lower supply, with many Newcastle students and tenants competing for homes, particularly larger stock and HMOs. As a result, we may see that Newcastle rental prices pick up even more over the next year, making it an exciting time for landlords to expand their investment portfolios.
Our service is completely bespoke, and tailored to your specific needs and requirements. We'll constantly monitor the market, attend viewings on your behalf and handle the sales process from instruction to completion, all according to your needs and budgets.
Why choose us?
There are many reasons to choose us:
We're different - we work on behalf of buyers, not sellers! We take advantage of our expertise to ensure our buyers get the best deal possible.
We know properties and where there may be potential problems, and we know the market inside and out.
We know what to leverage in negotiations in order to get you the best price possible.
We have a trusted network that can provide us with properties off-market, or before they hit the market.
Investing in property is likely the biggest purchase you will make, so it makes sense to have a professional working for you, rather than the seller.
We offer our landlords a range of marketing packages to suit their every requirement, and make sure that their properties are let as quickly as possible, and with the best returns possible. They range from a basic, more traditional, package, right through to featured property and social media packages. There is even the option to pick and choose ad hoc elements, so you can fully customise the marketing plan to suit your property.
Our marketing packages are designed to give your property the best coverage and place it at the forefront of property searches, so that you can agree a let as quickly as possible and without the need for any price reductions or incentives. We’ve seen lets being agreed within a matter of days, and using paid promotions and premium listings we’ve seen properties acquire 15+ hot leads in a single day – can your property do that?
