Landlord Advice


There are lots of tips on how you can choose an agent, buy property to let, find a tenant and manage your property.


This article will focus on the merits of working with an agent


Selling or letting a property successfully can be a time consuming and complex process, but using the right agent can help you to mitigate many of these risks. Whilst most selling transactions and tenancies run smoothly, a good agent will help you sell and let your property quicker, for more money, to a good calibre. If you do have a difficult buyer or tenancy you will quickly come to understand the value of a good agent.


Using an agent is not as expensive as you might think as most of them do work on commission.

Agents are especially great if you’re new to being a landlord and want:

  • To reduce stress and hassle
  • Guidance and advice
  • A safety net if something goes wrong
  • Help because the property is far away from where you live
  • A barrier between yourself and the buyers or the tenants
  • To save time
  • Legal aspects covered, taking care of deposit schemes etc

A professional estate or letting agent will begin the process by giving you a substantiated view on the market and a realistic idea of the average selling and monthly rent that you can expect to achieve on your property.
