Lettings & Management
Expert advice from the start
With over 25 years of lettings experience you can take comfort in knowing that the service and advice you will receive will be second to none.
Latest Rental Values
With a fast flowing level of properties being let we are always at the forefront of market conditions, trends and achievable rental values. During our Market Appraisal/valuation we shall provide you with comparable evidence to support our advice and recommendations together with the latest review of the market.
Improvements That Could Enhance Your Return
When conducting a market appraisal we do far more than just ‘value’. Advice will also be given on condition, art of presentation and preparation for the letting market. Basically anything that will help you achieve a higher rent and make the property as attractive as possible to a tenant.
Help In Choosing The Right Investment/Buy-to-let Property At The Outset
If you are looking to expand your current portfolio or buying a ‘buy-to-let’ investment for the first time, then we are happy to share our wealth of expertise and knowledge with you. To ensure you receive the best possible return on your investment we will undertake to advise on all aspects of selecting the appropriate property.
With legislation changing all the time you need to be confident that you are fully compliant. We will ensure that you are fully aware of all the relevant legal requirements and responsibilities regarding letting a property. Depending on the service you choose, the majority of the implementation work required can be carried out by ourselves.
For both UK and Overseas based clients we offer basic taxation advice on your obligations and what we would regard as ‘best practice’ to help maximise your return.
Going to market and finding the right tenants
A network that works for you
- People are attracted to choice and with more local offices than any other agent, all sharing properties, then you can understand why tenants come to us first.
- Multi-office coverage.
- Constant demand from professional tenants and company lets.
- Advertising locally and further afield (including London) ensures your property reaches a much wider audience of potential tenants.
- Featured on the most effective property portals.
Our own website receives on average more than
1,570 unique visitors A DAY!
Allowing plenty of time to initiate all options, we will contact you before the end of the tenancy period to offer advice and take your instructions. The options are: to re-market if a new tenant has to be found; renew the fixed term of your current tenancy, ensuring a further guaranteed period of tenancy; allow the tenant to stay on under a ‘periodic tenancy’ thus offering you the flexibility of only having to give two months notice should you require faster vacant possession.
VOID Periods Are Kept To A Minimum
Because of our forward thinking and constant flow of potential tenants (over 1,000 potential tenants register every month across our network) void periods are kept to an absolute minimum.
Choosing The Right Tenants
We always listen to your requirements and wishes and act upon them accordingly. All prospective tenants are carefully vetted and if we are not happy, we will advise you accordingly.
A service to suit you
Tenant Find Only Service (unmanaged)
If you prefer to manage your own properties then this is the service you may wish to choose. In addition to finding and vetting a suitable tenant we provide everything leading up to booking in the inventory and check-in (which can also be done upon request).
Rent Collection Service
An additional service for those that would prefer to self manage but would rather leave the collection and disbursements of rent to be handled professionally.
Our rent collection system results in a faster transfer of funds to you.
This is where our various services can be customised to suit your individual requirements.
Fully Managed Service
From start to finish you just leave it to us, we will look after your investment as if it were one of our own. Professionally conducted ‘check-ins’ and ‘check-outs‘ plus mid-term inspections are all part of our service. Obviously we will consult with you if there are any decisions to be made that would require your authorisation but apart from that you can relax knowing that it is all in good hands.
We can introduce you to bespoke products relating to tenancies, your property, it’s contents and subject to certain conditions, you can also receive Rental Guarantee and Legal Expenses cover.
Please don’t just take our word for it
I have always been a ‘I was gonna’ person in that I have, on occasion, intended to write a thank you for good service etc but never actually get around to doing it. I am ashamed to say that this happened again when I instructed Country Properties to find a tenant for a brand new flat that I recently purchased. However, following the excellent service I again received from Country Properties in handling a problem that involved the developers, I am actually putting pen to paper!
Thank you so much for the professionalism that has been shown by everyone at Country Properties, I really appreciate the customer care that has been given and I would not hesitate to recommend your lettings services.
Kind regards Anne Rogers
In the early part of 2003 I placed my house in your management care for various short-term tenancy lets. Since then and the successful sale of the property to the sitting tenants last month, there have been a total of 7 tenants.
Throughout these 5 years, I am pleased to report that your courteous staff have always been diligent in processing new tenants and rejecting unsuitable applications. The tenants themselves have taken care of the house. I would like to place on record my appreciation of Country Properties managing the property so well and making it easy for me as a newcomer to being a landlord.
I would not hesitate to recommend the services of Country Properties to anyone considering letting their property on short-term or longer agreements.
Ms A Davey
We would like to thank you and your staff for the very friendly and efficient service provided by you all, as landlords new to the rentals market, we have found the whole process quite straight forward and smooth running all due to your expertise.
Yours sincerely Mr & Mrs R Porter
I just wanted to say a quick THANK YOU for all your efforts in sourcing my latest tenants. You have been fantastic and once again made this process stress free since day one. Having taken care of me since my first buy-to-let and now with number four all safe and sound I really cannot thank you enough for all your hard work.
Kind regards Mark Potter
Thank you for your attentive, informative service in finding a suitable tenant so promptly. Your advice given was professional and I certainly would have no hesitation in using your services again.
Kind regards Jenny Russell
