Letting out a property can be a good investment, but it is a great idea to have professional help on your side to ensure that everything goes smoothly.
The personalised services provided by Kravens guarantee that we can find the perfect tenant(s) for your property and get you the maximum return on your investment. We also have a data base of corporate clients, who regularly need short and long term properties to accommodate their staff and employees.
When you choose to work with us to let your property, you can rest assured that we will provide you with a quality tenant, hand-picked from our large client database.
Our dedicated letting agents are well-versed with the local properties and the needs of the local tenants. This makes us uniquely qualified to make sure your property gets the exposure it needs to find the best possible tenants. The service will include tenant's referencing, arrangements for inventory checks and professional cleaning services (if requested), utility transfers and ensure a smooth move-in for the tenants. We will also advise you on buy-to-let properties and keep you on top of the legal and safety regulations that landlords are subjected to.
Many tenants are looking only for short term accommodation, i.e. 6 months or less. It may just be perfect for you, especially if you are looking to enjoy advance rents on your property, minimum void periods, and excellent property management facilities.
We realise that landlords need efficient and timely rent collection solutions with support services that ensure their peace of mind. Our trained and experienced team arrange payment of rent from tenant’s accounts to the landlord’s account for a hassle free experience. We offer a detailed and highly efficient landlord support service and aim to ensure that your rent payments are never late.
We realise that as a landlord, your priorities include finding the right tenant and maintaining your property to protect its value. Our property management services ensure the long-term value of your investment. These services include daily management, periodic inspections and bigger issues such as repairs, collection of rent, and a lot more.
One of our experienced letting agents will meet at a convenient time for you at your property to provide a free and accrate valuation. The agent will inspect your property and advise you on any improvements that could be made to increase your rental return. It would obviously be down to your discretion if you proceed with any of the advised works. We will then provide you with a calculated valuation in order to obtain the best price for you in the prevailing market conditions.
It is important that your property be cleaned, de-cluttered and decorated lightly in neutral colours, to make a good first impression on prospective tenants. A fresh coat of paint is will also be welcomed. Some quick and cost-effective enhancements will show that you are a responsible landlord and give you a greater rental return. Our photographers will then take photos of the property.
Our letting agents ensure that your property gets maximum exposure in the media. Our exacting PR efforts guarantee that your next tenant will be moving in to your property in a matter of weeks. The marketing process also include advertising on all major portals and accompanied viewing for your property.
We will let you know all the details of any offers we receive from your prospective tenants. Once you have decided to accept an offer, we’ll take care of the paperwork required before the tenancy can officially start. At this point we will take a deposit from the prospective tenant. This is also when we follow up on your tenant’s references and perform the necessary credit checks on them to ensure that your property letting experience remains problem-free.
We’ll also collect the security deposit from the tenants along with the first rent payment. Once the monies have cleared, we make sure that your new tenants have their keys. Congratulations! You are officially a landlord now.
