When it comes to renting out your property you need to be sure that the company you choose to handle the management will give you excellent service. That’s why putting your property with a local Estate Agent is a good choice. You’ll get local knowledge and excellent service from someone you can contact by telephone or in person. Here at Peter Woods Letting Specialists we have three levels of service which include and depending on the one you choose we will:
Have A Good Knowledge of The Rental Market
As an Estate Agent in London we have very good local knowledge of the areas we deal with and can advise you as to how much rental income you can expect. This is especially helpful if you have purchased a buy to let or inherited a property in an area you don’t know.
Interview Prospective Clients
If you don’t have a lot of experience or you’re a new landlord you may not know what kind of questions to ask. Staff at Peter Woods have the necessary experience and know-how. They will be able to spot time wasters and work out very quickly whether a tenant will be suitable for your property.
Get the Paperwork Done
Once a tenant has been found we can have contracts signed and any other paperwork drawn up on your behalf.
Advise You About Legalities
There are certain things you need to know when you are a landlord. Peter Woods staff can advise you about legalities and regulations that must be adhered to, for example fire regulations and the deposit scheme.
Handle the Deposit
By law if you have tenants on a short hold tenancy their deposit must be put into one of the government approved deposit schemes. We can take the deposit from the tenant and deposit it in the scheme you choose.
Manage the Letting
Once the tenants have moved in we can take over the management of the property. Of course we do make a charge for this service, but you will have peace of mind knowing that your property is in the hands of a reliable and knowledgeable team.
We will collect the rent and deal with any maintenance issues. If you don’t live close by it is much easier and more efficient to have us handle matters such as a water leak or a boiler repair. We know trusted local tradesman and we can get the job done quickly.
Help if There’s a Dispute
Dealing with disputes yourself can be very stressful and a minor situation may turn into a major one if not handled properly. By using our services, we can act as your middleman and you can depend on us to negotiate any solutions in a calm impartial manner that will stop situations from escalating.
