Hi all Planning to invest in a BTL in Birmingham soon. Please can you share your recommendation(s) for letting/property management agency(s) in Birmingham? Preferably a local business/boutique/family run agency, working with BTLs. If you recommend a chain, the name of a particular agent would be appreciated (if you would rather message privately, please let me know). Any recommendations on ones to avoid welcomed too. Thanks and good day Richard
Hello, as I am investigating into buying up north, I plan to mange it while I am over seas. I will be looking to network for local plumbers, carpenters, etc when I buy to help manage issues should they come. However I want to know if anyone can advise for reliable letting agencies to look after the property and rent it out as it requires... I understand there is a percentage on the rent for this, but what is the best way to do this, or who should I look to go with. My current interest is looking around Warrington, Wakefield, maybe Crewe and Doncaster. Thank you
I changed Letting Agents over 12 months ago as Inspections and Gas Safety was not being done on time. With the new Agency, as part of their 'Full Management' service they are supposed to conduct an inspection every 4 months (3 times a year). In the last year, I have only had 2 inspection Reports. The next inspection is 2 months overdue. It was overdue last time, when I challenged them about this - they claimed that it very difficult to schedule an Inspection with the tenant, before 5pm, as he works shifts. Should I be chasing up Agents, with "Full Management" service, every 6 months? Is this normal? Can anything be done? I have already changed Agents once. I am reluctant to change again, as the impression I get is that agencies are just interested in collecting a monthly fee and do not care about the condition of the property! Any responses, would be most appreciated. Thanks.
