  1. Hi readers, I need some advice on UK estate agents. Moderator note: You might want a "Estate Agents" category under "I need advice". I am looking to sell my property and have the following questions. Do all estates agents now ask you to sign Terms of Business? Do they all ask for ID and household bill proof? Are they suppose to include all marketing + EPC costs? The entire process of finding a good estate agent has been nightmare for me. Biggest problem is there's no consistency, and no one know if estate agents are pulling the fast one on you. I a
  2. Hi All, I've relocated out of UK and want to sell up a few of my BTLs sourced from Property Hub Invest. First one I am looking to sell is in Bradford...does anyone have any good Estate Agents they have used. Thanks, Dan
  3. Looking to be more hands on with property and am expanding into our no2 and 3 BTLs. Previous agent we liked but was very arms length in terms of management, the trades people instructed were not great and it often took a long time for call outs etc. off the back of a refurb we have some good contacts now for trades and handymen. Does anyone on here use open rent or used open rent previously?? thanks
  4. Hi, We are looking for recommended estate agents who manage HMO properties in Failsworth or Oldham area. We are looking for agents to manage our two 6 bed HMO properties in the M35 area. Our current agents are not delivering a service to our standards and covid has highlighted a lot of inefficiencies in their service which is costing us time and money. Our search and interactions with a few agents has not resulted in much success. Any recommendations of agents used by people in the area would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance, stay safe. Best regards, Manju http
  5. So on the recent ask Rob & Rob episode 246, Chris asked how to get local knowledge without having to look into every single street to work out the best streets to invest in, or to visit every estate agent asking them which streets are better than others. Of course streets can vary massively even within a few hundred yards as one Rob said, and they suggested speaking to other investors in the area etc. The question I have is how does one actually go about developing this local knowledge from your desktop, so that when you go to speak to estate agents and other investors in your chosen
  6. Good Evening everyone, I just wanted to share my experience as a tennant living in west London for the last two years. Property number 1 we rented for 12 months. We had issues from day 1. We were informed the contract was incorrect as the address was in fact wrong. The estate agent said this was the only change so we immediately signed the new contact, only to discover the landlord had added that we had to use their choice of energy supplier and we could not change it and that we were not allowed bicycles on the premises. Quite crucial as we owned 4 bikes! We had an ins
  7. Hello to All, My name is Joanna and I live in York, UK. I have recently been given a great opportunity in a field relatively new to me, namely selling overseas properties. I have never worked in the properties sector before, but over the last few months I have been working with great people who know a lot so I am learning from them. I am a UK agent for an established overseas estate agency and offer luxury properties abroad. At the moment I am working on properties located in just one country (Mauritius) however in the future I am hoping to actually secure exclusivity wit
  8. I am wanting to work out when (if) is now the optimum time for terminating my contract with my agents? Their performance has consistently disappointed me and other than costing me, I have not really felt any benefits as I still coordinate or prompt repairs/services for my property. As I've only talked this through to myself, I imagine I've missed valuable information out, so happy to expand. Facts Despite me feeling like they have breached the terms of the contract on several occasions, I have a feeling they won't feel that way, so I assume I have to use the full notice p
  9. Hi fellow forumers, I'm wondering if anyone has experienced a similar set up in the past and can advise me of their thoughts. This is our first development of this type and although we have a good accountant they are not property specific so I'd be interested to hear some ideas. Here goes... We have a development company and are due to complete construction of a block containing 9 apartments next year. As part of the purchase deal, the seller is retaining 2 of the apartments effectively leaving us with 7 apartments. We may sell a couple of flats but at the momen
  10. Hi folks, Again I'm hoping for some help in getting started with my BTL property portfolio which I hope to kickstart before the end of this year in Edinburgh. I have done a LOT of reading/ online researching but feel I need to now get out & start discussing my goals/ strategy (all now documented) & more specifically the numbers with the professionals, so I can start to get a real feel as to how realistic my plans are - but where do I start? I have used Mov8 Estate Agents & Sols in the past (in buying & selling my home properties) - so I know

I am here to discuss and gather information regarding various property investment aspects. Best, James
  12. Hello , Please can anyone recommend a good investor experienced buyer's estate agent in the London area?
  13. Hi everyone, I am selling a flat in north London - I'd be interested in a quick straw poll of estate agent fees. I know online agents are very cheap, but I'd be interested in hearing people's experience of local agent commissions. I will speak with a few agents, but would be good to get some general feedback from hubbers first. Thanks
  14. Hi all, Just wondered if anyone had any thoughts on becoming a lettings agency. I currently self manage one of my own properties and am considering doing this through a ltd company to reduce the income I receive from it. However it got me thinking as to whether I could do this for other local properties. My family have got a couple of local properties they also rent out via day to day estate agents @ eye watering rates (14%+VAT) and a neighbour rents out the house next to me. Am pretty sure he might consider using me as he's not pleased with his current agent and their fees. Admittedly no
