Property Management

We know from experience that a lot of people have tended to jump feet first into the “buy to let” property market, firmly believing that it is going to be a “money for nothing venture”. There is, however, a lot more to being a landlord than first meets the eye and without professional help, many landlords find they are unable to keep on top of things.

By using UniGaff as your letting agent, you will be putting your investment into the hands of experts who have the necessary expertise, knowledge and contacts to ensure that pretty much everything is taken care of for you.

As with the majority of true professionals, it pays to shop around to ensure you are choosing a reputable letting agent. We have prepared a number of “tips” to help you make that important choice.

Top tips:

Make sure the agent is up to date with relevant legislation and procedures for things like reference checking tenants, inventories and the use of photography as back up to the written word. They should also have good contractors for repair work. A good letting agent will be able to provide advice on furnishings and décor and how best to target your property to different types of tenant.

Do not be tempted by the lowest fees or highest potential rental. Ask for guidance as to the rent being paid on similar properties in the area and ask what level of demand is in the local area for properties similar to yours.

Ensure that the agent is a member of a professional body and that they offer “client money protection” and “professional indemnity” insurance. This demonstrates professionalism and experience and ensures high levels of service.

Finally we recommend landlords check their contract with the agent, specifically the fees that are paid, the services provided and importantly what your responsibilities are.

Having carefully researched your agents we hope that you will feel confident that UniGaff satisfy these tips and that you will allow us the opportunity of meeting with you in order to further discuss your wants and needs.
