The material below is a brief outline of the main points that budding or even experienced landlords may need to consider.
Becoming a landlord
Obtaining a buy-to-let property or an investment property can actually be done a lot easier than most people think. We currently have trusted financial/mortgage advisors and accountants which we are happy to put you in contact with in order to help you through this process.
Our team at Preview is extremely experienced and is always willing to support and cooperate with Landlords to guarantee that they receive the best advice, the best returns and the best protection and peace of mind. Our expert knowledge and wide range of services can take the stress out of becoming a Landlord, letting you receive all of the benefits whilst removing all of the difficulty.
The services preview can offer landlords
We strive to be the best Letting Agent providing the best possible customer service; therefore we offer Landlords what we think are the best set of services they could want.
• FULL ADVERTISING OF PROPERTIES
We currently use tools such as the weekly newspaper, facebook, twitter and our own website along with adverts on Rightmove, The Digital Property Group, Find a property and Prime Location to promote and advertise properties.
• CAREFUL VETTING OF TENANTS
We ensure that the appropriate checks and research is carried out in order to find the perfect tenants to meet your requirements, therefore leaving Landlords with no worries.
• PREPARATION OF INVENTORIES OF CONTENTS AND SCHEDULES OF CONDITIONS
We keep a constant check on the condition of the property and the way in which the tenants are treating/using it. We make sure that the property is respected and left in the way in which it was when they moved in; therefore removing any concerns the Landlord may have.
• COLLECTION OF RENTS AND DEPOSITS
We take care of all aspects of the rent and deposit payments independently. This can be dealt with primarily at Preview so as not to intrude on Landlords day to day activity.
• INSPECTION OF PROPERTIES EVERY THREE MONTHS
We carry out inspections every 3 months in order to assess the overall condition of the property; whether the tenants are looking after it and whether they have any problems which we can then relay to the Landlord to ensure peace of mind.
• MONTHLY ACCOUNTING TO LANDLORDS
We will keep Landlords informed of any expenses that have been incurred in relation to their properties monthly to keep them up to date with any works that have been or may need to be carried out.
• REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE OF PROPERTIES
Any problems to do with maintenance or repairs can be dealt with directly through Preview, we have trusted contractors’ which we use, and we can therefore arrange and organise any repairs or maintenance without hassling Landlords. Obviously all work would have to be approved by the Landlord but we will gather all details, prices, dates etc. Preview also boasts to be the only agent within the area that provides a 24hour/7 day a week call out services to our tenants in cases of emergency.
We also offer prospective Landlords the service of free property appraisals with the view of becoming either the Managing Agents or the Introductory Agent.
We will also be able to give advice on the legal aspects of being and/or becoming a Landlord, as it is highly important that Landlords are aware of the legal ins and outs. Not taking care over the legal side of things can often result in harsh penalties which can easily be avoided by taking the correct advice and precautions. We pride ourselves in the knowledge that we hold a real understanding of the letting market and we are therefore entirely confident that we can deliver Landlords the best advice for handling their Legal responsibilities.
For example we can advise Landlords on the following:
- Income tax
- Service Charges
- Energy performance
