Introduction for landlords

 

Introduction

Introduction

Whether you are a first time landlord or have owned rental properties for a number of years, the changing market, increasing legislation and ongoing need for the best return can leave you struggling to stay in the loop.

As long-standing property experts, Leaders believes that keeping you informed is just one part of our role in helping you make the most from your investment. The Landlords section of our website is designed to be a continually updated hub of information that will answer every question you might have about lettings.

For example, the recent Budget 2015 announcement contained plenty of information and regulation changes for landlords, which we explained here.

On the following tabs we explain more about the services we offer, the types of landlords we work with, our Investor Network scheme and much more. We also explain how we will maximise rents and secure quality tenants for you, as we realise these are crucial to you making a satisfactory return.

We work with Hepburns Insurance Services and the Mortgage Advice Bureau, which specialise in landlord insurance and buy-to-let mortgages respectively.

Our Services

Our Services

We are conscious of the fact that no two landlords are the same, so we have developed four different services that cater for every need.

The first of these is the Introduction Service, which is designed for those of you who are familiar with lettings and are able to stay up to date with ever-changing tenancy law. As such, you do not require comprehensive assistance on a regular basis, so under this scheme Leaders will market your property, conduct viewings and carry out tenant referencing to ensure the prospective occupant is suitable.

Rent Collection Service is the next step up and extra features are added to those included in the Introduction Service, including rent collection and payment direct to your bank account via BACS.

A Fully Managed Service is the third option open to you, with this offering many additional features that ensure you do not have to tackle any of the tasks associated with letting or managing your property. We will oversee the rental every step of the way.

Finally, our Premier Rent Guarantee Service provides complete peace of mind, as it includes every aspect of the Fully Managed Service as well as cover for rental income arrears, legal expenses relating to obtaining possession of your property and alternative accommodation expenses should they be required.

Among the many advantages of letting your property with Leaders is that we will chase all late rents on your behalf, and this approach is proven to be successful as we boast a remarkably low rate of arrears.
