Record levels for February! Aldreds lettings department have had an outstanding February with very high demand and an exceptional number of properties let. Even with some Landlords mortgage rates increasing the average rent level growth has more than balanced this out meaning that rented property remains an excellent investment. For those vendors with empty properties, renting during a difficult sales market provides many advantages including minimal costs as tenants will be paying the Council Tax and all utilities, no issues with insurance as the property will be not be vacant and perhaps the best advantage which is this gives breathing space to wait until the sales market returns to full strength. Our Full Managed service covers every aspect of management and is ideal for first time Landlords. We will provide a full appraisal and cover all necessary legislation and how to maximise rental returns with minimal expense. We will market the property using all the most up to date methods such as video tours along with traditional staples, often overlooked by other agents, such as high quality photographs and floor plans. Taking great care to select the most suitable tenant and reference them thoroughly is absolutely key to a successful and stress free tenancy. We want our clients to be as involved as much as they wish with the final selection of tenant for their property. Regular inspection visits and honest and open management of repairs are also very important and good communication with our Landlords during the tenancy means that we enjoy extremely high levels of client retention.
