Bramleys Buck National Trend On Lettings Market Slowdown

The Association of Regulated Letting Agents latest Private Sector Rental Report shows a national slow down, for rental homes. However, here at Bramleys Lettings we’re delighted to announce that we’re bucking this trend - October was the busiest month since October 2013!

Not only that, we’re 11% up on our rental lettings so far compared to last year, with another few weeks of 2017 to go!

There are definitely tangible benefits for Landlords deciding to use a reputable Letting Agent like Bramleys. Reputable Agents will be ARLA Propertymark protected, indicating that they meet higher standards than UK law demands.

"ARLA Propertymark protects and guides consumers, helping tenants and landlords to find and manage their treasured homes."

Bramleys can help you prepare for letting out your property.

Not only do we know the standards required for a quick let, our knowledge of the local market ensures you achieve the best rental price available.

We also compile the inventory for you.

Should there be any issues at the end of the tenancy, having an independent third party professional inventory will help to assist a satisfactory outcome.

  • Letting Agents further demonstrate their value when it comes to marketing a property. This includes preparing professional property information containing details, descriptions and high-quality photographs. Bramleys utilises strong marketing methods including established links with the local press, online presence, not only on our website but also through popular property portals and social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter.
  • We can assist with making sure you meet your legal requirements; particularly important for those first stepping into the world of property rental. Do you know how to make sure you’re meeting your legal obligations concerning EPC certificates and tenants’ deposits? We do.
  • Our years of experience in the local marketplace enables us to recognise the best tenants for you. Once a suitable applicant is found we are happy to screen and reference them for you.
  • Throughout the tenancy, we can conduct regular property inspections as required, giving you peace of mind that your property is being maintained. We’re also on hand to deal with any problems that may arise, be it minor property maintenance or a tenant who has locked themselves out!

So why not speak to the professionals?

Helen Hollingsworth, Bramleys partner and head of lettings commented: "Time and time again we hear horror stories around not only poor processes around sourcing suitable tenants but missing monies, slow payments, and lack of communication over issues. These are the type of situations that are not only extremely stressful for all involved but can also potentially be illegal.

Get in touch with Helen and our lettings team based in the Huddersfield office on 01484 530361 who would be happy to discuss your requirements, and help you let your property quickly.
