A Landlord’s Guide to Letting Successfully

We understand being a landlord can be a challenging and time-consuming task. However, choosing the right letting agent can help eliminate many of these potential headaches.

That’s why we’ve created the Seven Steps to a Successful Letting below. Follow these steps to find the best letting agent, attract quality tenants, and manage your property effectively:

Let’s Begin: Contact agents who are active in the area where your property is located to provide a reasonable opinion on achievable rent. Request comparable evidence instead of off-the-cuff estimates.

Choosing an Agent: Look for experience, integrity, and proven success when selecting a letting agent. We welcome you to speak with some of our long-term landlords, many of whom have been with us for decades.

Marketing Matters: How and where your property is marketed contributes significantly to your rental success. We use various techniques to attract viewers and create demand, which can lead to higher rents and a greater selection of tenants.

Presentation: To attract quality tenants willing to pay the best rental prices, your property must be clean, well-maintained, and nicely presented. First impressions count.

Offers: Once quality tenants have been found and the rental price agreed upon, we will handle all the necessary work, including collecting references, arranging tenancy agreements, collecting the initial deposit and rent, and arranging for a thorough inventory.

Completion: Once all the above is completed and in full order, you can release the keys to your new tenants.

Property Management: We offer different service tiers, from let-only to complete property management. This means you can sit back and relax, knowing we’re taking care of everything, including collecting rents, organising safety checks, and ensuring maintenance and repairs are undertaken promptly and professionally.

By following these steps and working with a trusted letting agency like ours, you can successfully let your property in West Bridgford, Vale of Belvoir, and Nottingham easily and confidently.
