Top Tip – Always pick an ARLA registered agent as these are the only agents that are properly qualified to let and manage your property.

Pippa Newton John MARLA Senior Negotiator

Top Tip for Landlords - Landlords, be flexible to what tenants may want to make the house their home.

Instead of doing lots of work before a tenant moves in, see what feedback you get from viewings - then make decisions guided by your agent and the right tenant. This may even save you some money!

Katie Piper MARLA - Property Manager

Top Tip for Rental – Before you consider moving into any new rental property, review all of your finances to make sure you have budgeted for all costs required when renting. Also don’t forget TV Licences, Parking Permits, broadband & telephone lines so it doesn’t ruin your excitement and enjoyment of moving into a new home if you under budgeted your outgoings. As a tenant myself, we have all been there.

Top Tip for Block Management – if you are planning to purchase your first property or to expand your portfolio, make sure you use an independent mortgage advisor whom has full market coverage to ensure you get the best possible mortgage offer.

Lee Barnes Head Property Valuer

Top Tip for Landlords - Always get the best advice from the agent and a checklist of what needs to be done before a tenant moves. If you’re not sure why you need a e.g. Inventory/Gas Safety ask the agent so they can explain why it is essential to have these items.

Top Tip for Vendors – Don’t make any MAJOR works before you get an agent round to give you a valuation. This could be time consuming and a waste of money. Let us tell you what works you could do to make you home more presentable and at a low cost!
