Why Let?

Why Let?

There are many practical and financial reasons why people choose to let. Purchasing residential property to let can be a secure and worthwhile form of investment – with returns rivalling many other kinds of investment. More and more people continue to invest in property as a way of providing for their retirement. Moving abroad, whether it’s temporary or permanent has become increasingly popular and letting your home offers you the opportunity to maintain an income from your property with the option to return at a later date. Changes in the job market mean more than ever, mobility and flexibility are important career issues – letting offers a swift solution. Many homeowners who can’t sell, find that letting out their current property enables them to relocate or buy another. Lenders now offer “Buy to Let” mortgages which enable you to achieve this.

Buy To Let?

Buy to Let

Buy to Let properties have become hugely popular in recent years because mortgage providers have developed numerous products to suit landlords’ needs. Provided you have an adequate deposit to put down, or alternatively enough equity in your main home, Buy to Let remains an excellent long-term investment providing both income and capital growth despite occasional fluctuations in the housing market.   Buy to Let should always be viewed as a medium to long term investment. There are also some tax advantages in buying to let: you can claim tax relief against items such as the interest on your mortgage, letting agency fees, insurance premiums and upkeep on the property. The key to success with buy-to-let is choosing the right property. If you are buying a property to let, choose one that will appeal to the type of people who live in that area. For example, the main tenant market could be made up of busy professionals, single people or couples who may be looking for:  
  • A two or three-bedroom flat or house
  • Good transport links
  • Small or no garden
Our staff can tell you about what gaps there are in the rental market. Before you buy, check that the house or flat you are interested in conforms to health and safety regulations. Otherwise you could find yourself needing to replace boilers, gas fires and appliances.

Managing your property

Managing your property

As part of our managed service we will prepare an inventory and schedule of condition. This forms the key element of our checking-in procedure. The list will contain all the items in the property including furniture, carpets, curtains and decoration – it will also have remarks as to their condition. The inventory allows us to monitor whether a tenant is looking after your property and to assess whether any of the security deposit should be retained for repairs or dilapidations. Our full management service obviously includes formally checking the property during the tenancy for which written reports will be supplied, ensuring your peace of mind. The checks also help us highlight whether any maintenance work is required to keep your property in good order. We will deal with calls from your tenant and organise repairs as necessary, subject to your instructions. We will negotiate tenancy renewals or extensions with your tenant and actively market the property for re-letting once your tenant serves notice. When a tenant is set to leave your property a rigorous check out procedure is followed. The full inventory and schedule of condition are checked to assess whether the tenant has maintained your property in a satisfactory condition. If it is found that there are items that are not up to standard then these areas will be deducted from the tenant’s security deposit – subject to statutory deposit regulations. We will collect the rent from your tenant and pass the funds on to you as soon as they clear. A simple regular statement will be sent to you at the end of each month, giving details of all transactions undertaken in connection with your property.

If you or your representative(s) wish to inspect the property before we agree the condition with and/or return the deposit to the tenant, you must do so the day after the tenant vacates the property and inform us before the tenancy termination date of your intention to do so.
