After an initial inspection and having established your specific needs, we will ensure that your property is let to the most suitable tenants, at a proper market rent and on the best possible tenancy terms. Our aim is to achieve a proper return on your investment, whilst safeguarding your interests as the Landlord. We will guide you through any relevant letting legislation (gas and electrical safety legislation, energy performance certificates, inventories, secuity deposits etc), help you avoid all the letting pitfalls, and make certain that your property is presented to its maximum potential. We will ensure that your property is always well advertised (we use property portals such as Primelocation, Findaproperty, Zoopla etc) and that details of your property are sent to all suitable applicants on our tenant database. We will accompany all prospective tenants who view your property, we will negotiate the best tenancy terms on your behalf, will will put all offers to you in writing and we will personally take up written references on prospective tenants (including a formal bank reference). We will then prepare the tenancy agreement ourselves, collect the first month’s rent and the security deposit, and account to you in full. Prior to the end of the tenancy, we will advise you on any potential renewal and we will then negotiate on your behalf with the tenant if required. We have successfully rented out properties in The West End and across Central London over the last twenty-eight years, and we feel that our long-term business connections (with HR departments, relocation agents etc) will give you access to the widest possible pool of suitable potential tenants.
INTERIOR DESIGN AND FURNISHING
We can arrange for the complete interior design, decoration and furnishing of flats and houses (whether they are rental investments or private homes) so that they are presented to their maximum potential. This service is particularly important for rental properties, as it is vital that the decorations and furnishings are of a quality and style that will attract the right calibre of professional tenant. When prospective tenants are trying to choose between properties of a similar type and price, the furnishings and decorations will often be the deciding factor. In addition, tenants are unlikely to stay in a property for more than one tenancy, if they feel that the furnishings are decorations are not of a suitable standard (which then increases your void periods and damages your annual rental income). Over the last twenty-eight years we have built up a detailed knowledge of what type of furnishings, fittings and decorations will appeal to the best blue-chip tenants, and we would be delighted to handle the entire design and furnishing process for you. We have also built up a range of well established business contacts over the last 30 years (with interior designers, decorators, craftsmen and curtain, flooring and furnishing suppliers) which will allow us to furnish and decorate your property both efficiently and cost-effectively.
