Why choose Robinson Reade

Why choose Robinson Reade?

We know that not all landlords are the same and that the reason you are letting your property is likely to be different to others. So, whether you are an experienced landlord with several properties, just about to purchase your first buy to let or letting out your own home, we understand that you’ll be looking for the right agent to help you with the process and that what you need help with will be different depending on your own unique circumstances.

As we are ARLA Propertymark licensed agents you can be confident that the people dealing with your property will have an in depth knowledge of the residential lettings market. We are fully trained in all aspects of the law applying to lettings and will make every effort to get you the best possible tenant ensuring that your investment remains profitable and hassle free. Because we are independent we can offer flexible service levels, allowing you to choose the service that you need, rather than paying for something you don’t.

Valuing your property for rental

We have been letting property locally since 2006 so are well placed to give you an honest & accurate appraisal of what your property will let for. The lettings market is changing constantly depending upon what is available at any one time. We keep a close eye on what properties are letting for so you can be sure that when we speak with you about your property we have up to the minute knowledge of the local market.

Finding you the right tenant

Aside from achieving the best rental figure possible we pride ourselves on matching our landlords’ properties to good quality tenants. We will want to understand the type of tenant that you are looking for, how long you want to let the property for and, of course, anything that you would prefer not to accept e.g. pets. We can also give you specific advice about presenting your property to attract the best possible tenant. Our marketing can then specifically target the sort of tenant that you are looking for. When we find you a potential tenant we will provide you with full information so that you are able to make an informed decision as to whether to accept their application (even before we begin our stringent referencing checks) which means that you remain in control of who will be living in your property.

Protecting your investment

Your rental property is likely to be one of your biggest assets and having tenants who pay their rent on time, look after the property and understand when to report maintenance issues is something that we know landlords value. To this end we have a stringent move in programme that ensures tenants know exactly what is required of them throughout and at the end of the tenancy.

To help us manage your property we use FixFlo, an online system for tenants to report any maintenance issues as they arise, 24 hours, 7 days a week. FixFlo will provide advice on simple issues that are the tenant’s responsibility and inform us about the issues that are the landlord’s responsibility.

Depending on the service level you choose we can carry out periodic visits, with a full report to you detailing how the tenant is looking after your property. We can manage the tenant’s check out at the end of their tenancy, deal with any dilapidations, and of course we can collect the rent on your behalf too. You’ll be encouraged to know that since starting our lettings business in 2006 we have never had to take court action against a non-paying tenant.

Keeping you appraised of legislation and tax updates

There are over 170 pieces of legislation that landlords and their agents need to comply with. As ARLA Propertymark licensed agents, it’s our job to stay abreast of these and any changes so that our landlords can have the peace of mind that both they and their properties are compliant.

It’s also important to keep up to date with any tax changes that occur as these could seriously affect your profit margins or result in a hefty fine if you don’t comply with taxation law. Again, we ensure that we are aware of any changes and that we impart this information as and when it occurs.
