Well, it has to be said that we’ve seen a pretty positive start to the month of June here at De Vere Letting Bureau. And, we think it looks set to continue.

Last month I advised that if you were thinking about becoming a landlord, now could be a good time to invest in a property or even build your existing portfolio. If you haven’t done so already, do have a read of what I said in last months blog! I still cannot recall a time when properties were so thin on the ground and the only disadvantage of us letting so many properties within the first few days of the month is that once again we find ourselves with very little to offer new tenants. So landlords, if an opportunity arises and the returns stack up do invest in that property!!

De Vere Letting Bureau can provide you with the right help and advice drawing on years of experience. We offer accurate, up to date valuations based on fact and we’re here to help you secure your investment. All our tenants are appraised by a director or senior member of staff prior to them viewing your property and if we feel they are in a position to proceed, they will go through a strict referencing procedure. We have always been particular, (you have to be) when selecting the right tenant and only deal with working professionals, something to consider given that PROPERTYdrum, (www.propertydrum.com) recently reported that Section 21 possession cases were at a 15 year high! Although, the majority of these claims are made by housing associations private tenants can behave in an anti-social way or fail to pay the rent, so I cannot stress how important it is to select the right letting agent and trust them to find you the ‘right’ tenant.

Anyone can let property or sell a property, but do consider who will be dealing with your most valuable asset. I’m certainly not all about doing a quick deal just to impress you – it is more important my colleagues and I get the job done correctly. We are still a Family Business and our long-term clients like the fact they are able to deal with the same members of staff week after week, month after month and crucially, year after year. Knowledge based on facts, experience of property rentals along with what the market is doing as a whole is what any potential landlord needs to know about. If you are thinking about renting out your property then please speak to us first, after all, De Vere Letting Bureau, Barnet are the longest established and most dedicated letting agent in High Barnet. We always offer an honest opinion, competitive fee’s and if you task us with the full management of your property, tenants can rely on a 24-Hour Emergency Hot Line should any issues arise.
