Our Services

We touched on our lettings service above, but let’s dig deeper into what we do for our clients. While the terms ‘letting’ and ‘renting’ are often used interchangeably, they mean two different things. The process of letting is where a property owner (landlord) makes a property available to rent. Renting, of course, is what the tenant does.

You want a seasoned hand to tell you what you can and cannot expect when it comes to real estate matters. As a family-run business that is independently owned, we value the close dynamic we have with our clients, and so do they. Here at Gordon Baker, we fully value honesty and transparency in all matters related to your next venture, as your next step is also ours. The convenience and ease of mind that comes with letting us take care of buying, selling, or letting your estate makes the entire process pain-free.

So, what do we do for our landlord clients?

We have three service tiers available:

  • Rent Collection
  • Tenant Find
  • Full Management

Our ‘Tenant Find’ service is the lowest of the three tiers and is perfect for hands-on landlords who only need a small helping hand. Priced at £594 (inc. VAT) per year, we source suitable and agreeable tenants as part of this service. Each tenant is referenced on your behalf for your peace of mind.

Every tenant is sourced through the extensive advertising and marketing tools at our disposal. We’ll also advise you on compliance matters and work with you to ensure that you know your responsibilities as a landlord. Under this service, we offer property marketing, tenant sourcing, tenancy agreements, first rent and deposit collection, and an extensive move-in pack for both tenant and landlord.

The next tier is our ‘Rent Collection’ service. This service includes everything mentioned under the ‘Tenant Find’ service. But rather than just collecting the first rent and deposit, we handle all rent collection, saving you the headache of chasing your tenants for what they owe.

The final tier is our ‘Full Management’ service – perfect for landlords who want to leave everything to someone else. You’ll be able to reap the benefits of letting a property without any of the time-consuming or stressful management and legal aspects.

As part of this service, you get all the features of the ‘Tenant Find’ and ‘Rent Collection’ tiers. On top of that, we manage the property, arranging repairs and maintenance using trusted contractors, carrying out regular inspections, and more. We also send you monthly accounting statements.

This makes the final tier perfect for busy professionals or those who’d rather not get involved with the daily minutia of managing properties and tenants.

Contact Gordon Barker today if you would like to inquire about these services or arrange a FREE valuation.

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.
