Let your property
Here at Satchells we act for both private and institutional landlords, offering a wide range of properties from studio flats to large detached houses.
We offer a complete letting service, which includes initial appraisal and marketing advice. To provide effective coverage and reach the maximum number of potential tenants, we advertise a list of available properties in all our prominently located offices.
Our aim is to provide a service tailored to each client, from tenant finding only through to full property management.
Tenant Finding Only
This service is suited to experienced landlords with the time and resources to deal with the issues that inevitably arise from letting a property. Issues for consideration when letting a property can include:
- Rent collection
- Periodic inspections
- Emergency call-out
- Lost keys
- Insurance claims
- Faulty appliances
The service of notices is critically important to preserve your rights and regain possession of the property at the appropriate time. If you live overseas, you must by law provide a UK address at which notices can be served.
Full Property Management
The responsibilities of a landlord can be daunting. The property needs to be well maintained, with problems resolved quickly and efficiently.
If you live out of the area, do not have the time to deal with day-to-day issues, or simply want to 'keep your distance' from the tenant, this service is tailored to suit your needs.
We look after everything. We have built up good working relationships with a variety of experienced contractors, offering a prompt service on preferential terms.
If you are resident overseas we can help set up a reference with Inland Revenue to avoid paying tax on the full rent at the basic rate.
Buy to Let
Working in conjunction with our sales and financial services departments, we can advise on the purchase of suitable properties to buy and arrange the mortgage for you.
Our Branch Network
Over the years we have expanded and have a number of offices located in prominent town centre locations along the A1 corridor, right into north London.
As soon as you instruct Satchells for a sale or letting, your property will become available across our multiple platforms, including advertisement in all our offices. This is to ensure maximum exposure.
Maximising the number of people informed about your property improves the chances of a sale or letting. Here at Satchells, we use the latest techniques to ensure your property is given the best possible exposure. These include:
- Database upload - Details of your property will be matched to our extensive database of applicants looking within the area
- Flyer distribution - Details of your property will be hand delivered and posted
- E-mails and text messages - Notifications will be sent to relevant parties as soon as your property comes on the market
- Telephone Calls – People buy from people, which is why we reinforce the circulation of property details with personal phone calls
- Local Press - We maintain a presence in the local press and extend our property pages with lifts and special copy into regional and north London papers if appropriate.
- Glossy Publications - For more prestigious and enhanced advertising, we advertise in glossy magazines such as Hertfordshire Life and Bedfordshire County Life
- Social Media - You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter
Internet advertising creates the opportunity for people worldwide to have the ability to view your property. We can enhance your online profile with floor plans, and virtual tours, as well as monitoring how many people have viewed the details.
We create high-quality particulars that are designed to impress and encourage viewings. These will be digitally produced in a variety of formats with colour photographs and floor plans (if appropriate).
Satchells – The Complete Package
Our years of experience and wide range of marketing collateral ensures we reach the highest possible number of potential tenants.
We can create a bespoke package to suit your individual requirements. When a letting is agreed, we will work with you to help try and resolve any problems that may arise and try to get tenants moved in within your desired time frame.
Please note: Market appraisals for pre-sales purposes are free of charge. Satchells reserves the right to charge clients for non-sales related appraisals, for example, for probate or asset valuations.
