Landlords, what have we learnt?

A question for Landlords? Why are some letting agents potentially charging you a first months’ rent for their services in finding a new tenant, and in some cases more?

Having successfully sourced several new tenants for various Clients myself this month, on each occasion within days of the initial request. I now know exactly what is required of my time in doing so.

Just like me, most of the Agents’ already have a database of potential tenants (but not in all cases), who have lodged their request regarding a particular property in a certain area. I agree there is a requirement to upload the basic information to the online portals after assessing the property, taking measurements, floor plans, credit and reference checks, photos’ and if like me a video. There is also the time for prospective viewings and a few other minor time-consuming actions to fulfill regarding the applicable documentation.

With the average rents in the North East running at approximately £546, that seems to be an awful lot of your money for the task in hand.

Target Property Services (NE), affordably priced, honest advice.

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.
