The demand for flats and houses to let throughout our catchment area far exceeds the availability of suitable property.
With an abundance of locally based corporates, hospitals and universities together with commuters taking advantage of the area’s excellent communications, our list of potential tenants is extensive.
Our busy lettings department offers a wide range of marketing to include all the effective property websites, Once we find the ideal tenant, we can offer property management services, which will include collecting the monthly rent, inspecting the property periodically and sorting out those niggling repairs which can be time consuming for the busy landlord.
Salter McGuinness clients benefit from specialist landlord insurance and rent guarantee for extra piece of mind.
Whilst recent raft of changes to legislation surrounding property letting, is designed to improve conditions for tenants, it has put an increased burden on the beleaguered Landlord. A Salter McGuinness landlord enjoys the benefit of our encyclopaedic knowledge in this field. From the point of instruction, to the successful occupation by the tenant, we will navigate you through your obligations, to ensure that all requirements have been adhered to.
At Salter McGuinness we have been serving the property sector since 1998. We are governed and regulated by The Property Ombudsman (TBO), previously known as the Ombudsman for Estate Agents. The scheme is a UK government approved organisation, providing an alternative dispute resolution. This scheme provides free, impartial and independent service to Consumers and Property agents.
