When choosing a letting agent to let and manage your property – probably one of the most valuable assets you own – you need to be sure that they know what they are doing!
A letting agent should have only 2 priorities.
Firstly, they need to show that they are maximising the potential value of your asset.
This includes things like achieving the highest market rent, keeping void periods to a minimum, carrying out proper tenant referencing, preparing detailed photographic inventories and inspecting the property regularly.
Secondly, the agent should always be keeping the landlord compliant and the property safe by adhering to the 150 plus rules and regulations that govern the private rental sector!
