2022 is just around the corner and the New Year is seen as a time to re-evaluate and re-organise. Have you given your current property investments thought lately?

Here are some questions to ask yourself: 

  • When did my letting agent last offer a rent review?
  • Do I know how to maximise my rental yield?
  • Is my rental yield in line with the property market trends?
  • Am I satisfied with my current letting agent?
  • Does my letting agent offer the right services for my needs?

Whether you have a residential or commercial property to let, it’s important to make sure you are getting the most out of your property investment and that your letting agent is able to meet your needs.

If the answer to any of the questions above is no, it’s time to review your situation to make sure you gain maximum return on your investment. If you are a private landlord and feel overwhelmed with the amount of legislation and management issues of your property, it could be time to instruct a qualified and accredited lettings and property management agent.

If you already have a letting agency looking after your property but feel concerned about the level of service you receive, then it’s time to consider changing agent.

What shall you look for in a letting agent?

You want to find a letting agent who will:

  • listen to your needs and requirements as a landlord
  • find the best ways to ensure you are making the most of your investment
  • always keep you in the loop with regular communication

It’s also very important to make sure your letting agent is up to date with the latest legislation and regulations, knows the current market trends for property rentals in your area and can give reliable advice and guidance about rental yields, protecting your rent and the value of your property investment.

To help you decide on a letting agent firstly check out their website to ensure they are a credible and reliable business in your local area. Take a look at their offerings and what kind of properties they deal with. Make sure to read reviews so you know what to expect and find out what other landlords say about the service they provided.
