Landlord Guide to choosing a Letting Agent

Letting a property successfully to a good, reliable tenant can be a time consuming process. The increasing complexity of legislation and the risk of hefty fines for non-compliance also add to the potential stress of letting out a property.

The calamitous corona-virus pandemic has further complicated the process, as more restrictions along with health and safety measures have been introduced to protect all those involved. But the pandemic has also forced letting agents to up their game, with many rising to the challenges they have faced, by accelerating innovation in the sector.

If, like many landlords, you are short on time, unequipped to do the essential tasks, or don’t live near your rental property, the benefits of using a letting agent are quite likely to outweigh the costs. A good agent, who knows the local area, will be able to rent your property out more quickly, for more rent, to a good tenant, saving you time and hassle.

But it is important to choose your agent wisely. Spend some time on your research as ultimately there should be no such thing as a ‘let and forget’ landlord and therefore you have to get your partner right.

Joe has provided a 5 star service. My mum’s rental property has stood vacant for some time as she has had an extended stay in hospital. He met me at the property within days of making contact, and found us a tenant within 3 days! He even treated the weeds, fixed a broken window and sorted out the safety checks for me. It took all of the pressure off and was a very friendly and professional service. I would highly recommend!

As a tenant, the service I received from Joe was extremely quick and professional. Everything I asked about was dealt with prior to me moving in and he is very responsive to any queries I may have. I would highly recommend Target Property Services NE.

My property was on the market with 3 other agents for over 2 months without any success. To be honest I felt they weren’t even trying. I thought I would give Target Property Services an opportunity to market my luxury quayside apartment as I had heard good reviews about them. Within 24 hours of them listing the apartment to let, they had 2 viewings booked in and within a week a new tenancy had been agreed. First class service at a very competitive price that puts others to shame, plus an unrivaled personal touch that cannot be found with any of the better known high street estate agents. I am now very happy for Target Property Services NE to market and manage all my property portfolio. Highly recommend.

Joe has been our landlord for 5 years now and we cannot be happier. Renting from him has been an absolute pleasure. He is professional, helpful and caring, and if we ever have a problem, he is there to sort it out quickly and efficiently. The house we rent from him is lovely, and safety checks and boiler servicing are carried out regularly. We feel very much at home and cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you Joe.
