With demand for affordable, premium housing at its highest level in several years, London landlords rarely struggle to find tenants for their properties. Their real dilemma is sourcing a quality tenant and retaining them as long as possible to evade any possible ‘void’ periods. The Brinkleys team have been sourcing and retaining excellent tenants for our landlords across South West London for over a decade. Our specialist lettings experts take great care to thoroughly reference check our tenants with the help of Rent4Sure who carry out all referencing on our behalf. This means our landlords can enjoy peace of mind safe in the knowledge that their property is in the best possible hands. Brinkleys have Client money protection through ARLA.
Apply at the same rate as originally charged on the initial let. Brinkleys may receive an administration fee from any approved contractor. This does not affect the amount you pay. We understand that being a landlord comes with responsibilities and there is a lot to consider before renting out your property. Here we summarise some of our advice to landlords to help make the process easier and hassle-free:
This is in advance of when you would like your tenant to move in and gives us plenty of time to ensure your property is promoted to as wide an audience as possible through our portals and strategic marketing techniques. You should also work with your dedicated lettings manager to plan a budget and decide how much to ask for the rent.
Simple steps like de-cluttering and tidying can go a long way to improve the look and feel of a place. Invest in some fresh flowers or a scented candle to make your property seem more inviting to potential tenants and confine pets to outdoor areas while viewings are taking place.
If you are a new landlord, our expert team of lettings administrators will be very happy to advise you on fire and furnishing regulations, gas safety regulations and electrical safety certificates. They can also provide you with all the information and necessary checks with contractors in compliance with the Law.
