Buy to Let
Before you think about looking around properties sit down with a pen and paper and write down the cost of houses you are looking at and the rent you are likely to get.
Buy-to-let lenders typically want rent to cover 125% of the mortgage repayments and many now demanding 25% deposits, or even larger, for rates considerably above residential mortgage deals.
Why use Brinkley’s to Manage your new buy to let?
Buying a property is only the first step. Will you rent it out yourself or get an agent to do so.
Agents will charge you a management fee, but will deal with any problems and have a good network of plumbers, electricians and other workers if things go wrong.
You can make more money by renting the property out yourself but be prepared to give up weekends and evenings on viewings, advertising and repairs.
When your property is managed by a Brinkley’s expert, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing you are represented by a true professional. Landlords are confronted with a minefield of responsibility on a daily basis. It is our job to make sure we relieve some of that burden by making life as easy as possible with our comprehensive range of management services.
Our hands-on approach is particularly appealing to landlords who live overseas or those who are fairly new to property investment. It is also a major attraction for those who simply lack the time or the inclination to manage the property themselves.
Our landlords are allocated their own dedicated Property Manager to answer any day to day queries. They can also rest assured safe in the knowledge that our management team uses only fully-insured, competitively priced and vetted suppliers and contractors. We also have a 24-hour helpline to ensure that there is always someone on hand to deal with any problems that may arise.
To our standard letting service, our Management Service adds:
- Two inspections per annum with a subsequent, full report.
- Arrangements for repair and maintenance.
- 24-hour emergency contact.
- Key-holding service.
- Arrangement of payments for rent and outgoings as well as check-out/check-in, inventories, gas safety certificates and EPC appointments.
