There are many factors to renting a property and we are pleased to say, “we have you covered!”
Here, Victoria Taylor, lettings manager at Debbie Fortune Estate Agents, explains why:
Firstly, finding a suitable tenant for your property is arguably the most important factor when considering becoming a landlord but with the ever-changing world of letting compliance, there are now so many other factors to consider.
Here at Debbie Fortune Estate Agents, our lettings team are highly trained with ongoing support from our solicitors and our compliance experts at The Guild of Professional Estate Agents of which we are proud members. ‘Right to rent’ checks, referencing checks, up to date tenancy agreements, safety certificates and signed declarations, registered deposit certificates and a first class inventory and ongoing inspections are all firmly set in place to protect our valued landlords.
Victoria says “We carry out a very stringent referencing process here at Debbie Fortune Estate Agents and we will always be open and honest, ensuring you get the right tenant, thus helping to secure your rental investment for years to come”
Next you have your property; Do you have the correct and up to date EPC in place? We can check this for you. Then, there’s the condition of the property. For instance, rarely will a tenant wish demand any repairs right away from you, therefore, to avoid early complications and to obtain the highest possible yield on your rental investment, we recommend you take the initial steps to paint the walls, doors, and window frames and make any necessary repairs before marketing. We can even help arrange this for you too.
With our approach to beautiful marketing along with a high web presence, we guarantee that your property is seen in its very best light, by a broader audience so choosing an estate agents like Debbie Fortune Estate Agents, that has a strong marketing strategy and professional, honest approach is more important than ever.
Please do give us a call or pop in for a good cup of coffee for advice on starting your investment journey as a landlord.
Lastly, if you are an existing landlord, DID YOU KNOW? – we also offer a FREE ‘compliance health check’ for your tenancies – please just ask if you’re not 100% sure you’re still compliant!
