Arranging an up to date valuation of your property by one of lettings experts gives you an idea of how much you can change on a monthly basis. The valuation takes into consideration recent demand, area and property condition. We like to know if there are local shops and schools which may be of interest to potential tenants.
If you have any questions, you can have faith in the knowledge that we are here for you if you need us. It might be that you are not sure of current legislation, or whether to offer the property furnished or not. Whatever the question, we are here to help.
To attract interest, we use a tried and tested formula of high quality digital photography along with our considerable marketing strategies to find the right tenant for your property.
We chose our Marketing channels carefully by keeping up to date with demand and trends of how tenants are searching for their next property. It goes without saying that an internet presence is essential so we add your property to heywoodsproperty.co.uk along with the main property portals including Rightmove and Zoopla. All that backed up by newspaper advertising and a feature in our own publication The Property News.
We have hundreds of potential tenants registered on our system who are waiting for the right property to come along. We will contact any interested tenants as soon as you give us the go ahead, to generate as much interest as possible.
We also benefit from having well located offices. We regularly welcome people who are just passing and looking for their next property. So a quick chat over a cup of tea and they are registered on our system!
We can show people round and keep you updated with feedback.
Our team are all local and have great knowledge of local schools, shops and things to do which is a real bonus.
Referencing interested tenants is something we are particularly good at and we will only recommend tenants who have passed our stringent referencing checks.
Once the tenant(s) has approval, we will prepare the tenancy agreement, manage the transfer of utilities into the name of tenant(s) and check the tenant(s) in.
As a landlord, there are certificates and a number of checks to be made to keep you compliant. If you are not sure what you need to do, we can guide you through the whole process. We can help with information about gas safety checks.
We strongly recommend you have the house professionally cleaned before you rent it. This sets standards from the very beginning. Once you have set the standard we will do everything we can to ensure it is maintained.
Before moving your tenant(s) in to the property, we recommend and inventory be taken. Whilst allowing you to catalogue the contents it is a good way to assess the property’s condition.
Nothing too complex! Making sure the i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed is essential.
Only once the paperwork signed, deposit and first month’s rent payment received and in clear funds, will we hand the keys to the new tenant(s).
It is now a legal requirement that all damage deposits are secured by a Deposit Scheme. This gives both you and the tenant peace of mind. If we manage you property, we can deal with this for you and attempt to deal with any disputes that may arise at the end of a tenancy.
We can collect the rent from the tenant and arrange a payment directly to your bank account if you need us to.
Here at Heywoods, we offer a range of services directed at the landlords needs.
You can either choose our tenant finder service which does exactly what it says on the tin or we can manage the whole letting process for you. We love lettings and our team have years of experience to help you. We are here if you need us.
To make sure you have all the information you need to make a decision on which is the best service for you, we can discuss this during your first appointment.
