Should you have an emergency situation out of normal office hours we would ask that you contact the relevant tradesman directly (please note the tradesmen will use their discretion as to what is classified as an emergency)
Many people when investing don’t like the stock market, and decide to put their money into an asset they understand – Property! The Buy-to-let market is booming again. The amount of money lent to landlords in the three months to the end of June was 29% higher than in the same period last year.
If you want to join the band of buy-to-let landlords, it’s vital to buy the right properties and have them managed by a professional agent!
At Fineholm we have been in the industry for over 40 years and know the best areas and type of property to buy to maximise your rental investment. We have a specialist team who can guide you through the whole process from finding you the right property to buy, offering, getting the property ready for the rental market, type of furnishing and then marketing to secure the right tenant
Our top tips when looking for a Buy to Let:
Remember it is an investment – A traditional property is lovely but when renting out it can be costly, look at modern flats that tend to have lower maintenance costs. Do not get carried away about any purchase as a home. It is a business deal
Type of Property – The most popular type of property is a 1 or 2 bedroom flat close to the city centre and Universities. Check out our renting section which offers advice on average rents in each area
Avoid Run Down Areas– Quite simply, this will attract a poor-quality tenant and will cost you money
Right Mortgage – Make sure you shop around to secure the best mortgage, there are number of products on the market so make sure you use an independent financial advisor who can source the best deal
Offering – Before offering speak to one of our team and we can have a look at the property online and advise you of an achievable rent and if any work would be required
My wife and I purchased a house relatively quickly so we got in touch with Fineholm, asking them to source tenants for our flat which we would be vacating. Sally and Fineholm sourced a fantastic couple with a young child very quickly, performed all the necessary checks and confirmed to us that they were very good candidates. Fineholm sorted everything out in the background in terms of all the required admin tasks as well as walking me through the necessary steps such as registering as a landlord and setting up my SafeDeposits account. I could not have done all that was required on my own and thanks to Fineholm the tenants were in our flat on an agreed 12-month lease, with the probability of another 12-month lease coming our way, in a very short space of time! Great service all round
