Letting Agents Crawley

Knights – Letting agents Crawley wide act on behalf of landlords to smooth the way to renting out their properties and managing the tenancy while it’s running its course. It’s estimated that around 20% of households are renting in the private sector rather than buying their own home with a mortgage, and the numbers are rising as people find it harder to get on the property ladder.

So, it’s clear that there is a strong rentals market; however, that also means your property is in competition with countless others. The key to successful letting is selecting the right agent in the first place.

Why Landlords Pay Letting Agents West Sussex Wide To Manage Their Properties

Property is still one of the most stable forms of investment for individuals looking to maximise income from financial portfolios. It’s reliable and often gives the best returns over the longer term. So you, like countless others, may have joined the buy-to-let set, adding one or more properties to your portfolio to be leased out to others. At first glance, it seems like a relatively hands-off matter: find a tenant and let the income roll in. So why pay letting agents Crawley based or elsewhere when you could manage it all yourself? But that masks the sheer amount of legwork and stress involved, which good letting agents Crawley West Sussex wide will take on.

First, there’s the matter of finding tenants. Doing that yourself requires advertising the property in all the right places; meeting suitable applicants; checking their desirability in terms of credit and rent affordability checks, UK residency status; taking up references and so on. New tenants’ deposits must also be kept in a government-approved tenancy deposit scheme. Then, there’s ensuring the property complies with all relevant health and safety legislation – gas and electrical safety certificates and Energy Performance Certificate as a minimum. Once the tenant has moved in, you’re looking at frequent visits to check they are keeping the property in good order, not to mention dealing with maintenance issues; and a redecoration schedule if they’re long term letters. All this takes time, effort and money. Hiring letting estate agents Crawley based will take a great deal of weight off your shoulders by doing some or all of this, according to the deal you negotiate with them.
