How Can Our Letting Services Benefit You?
Managing just one property can be pretty tough, let alone several properties. One of the main reasons people choose to become landlords is for the advantage of having an additional source of income. In some cases, depending on how many properties you own, this may even be your primary source of income.
But it can also become a huge burden, especially if you manage multiple properties and tenants. That’s why it’s often hugely beneficial to enlist an agency that offers letting services, such as full property management, especially if you’re a busy professional.
These are just some of the reasons why you should leave the management of your property to us here at Gordon Barker:
- Find Suitable Tenants Quickly
- Eliminates the Stress of Rent Collection
- Removes the Burden of Property Management
- Saves You from Worrying About Legal Aspects
- FREE Valuations
- Market-Leading Expertise
When a tenant moves out, the property (or room in a property of multiple occupancies) is left vacant. The longer this drags on for, the more it’ll cost you, as you’ll still need to cover the costs usually covered by the tenant. Our lettings service makes excellent use of a suite of advertising and marketing tools. We market your property 24/7 locally, nationally, and internationally.
So, you can rest assured that your property (or room) will be occupied again quickly by a suitable, referenced-checked tenant.
Rent collection can be a stressful experience, especially when dealing with unreliable tenants. We can take care of this for you by setting up a direct debit in which the tenants pay their rent to us – this is then passed on to you. If tenants fail to keep up with their rent payments, we can take appropriate action on your behalf, saving you time and stress.
Our full property management service takes this one step further. Rather than being pestered by your tenants whenever something needs fixing, replacing, or they have a question, we can instead act as the point of contact. We’ll take care of the upkeep of the property and handle any questions, concerns, or requests the tenants might have.
Legal aspects are part and parcel of letting a property, and it can be easy to fall foul of something you weren’t aware of. With our lettings team, you’re fully covered as we are fully aware of the legal responsibilities of all involved parties.
If you let a property privately, you may charge too little. While you’ll certainly attract a lot of prospective tenants, you’ll also be taking a hit on the amount of rent you receive each month. Conversely, you could be charging too much, putting off prospective tenants. With a FREE valuation provided by Gordon Barker, you’ll know precisely what you can charge each month.
