As your local independent lettings and property management agents, we understand that your property is an important investment for you. That's why at Bennett Mason we listen to our landlords and do everything we can to get the results you want quickly, safely, legally and profitably.
We have developed an enviable reputation for providing the highest quality services to our landlords combining tradition and a proactive approach in this complex and constantly changing market.
We offer a comprehensive range of services suited to the varying needs of landlords whether 'Buy to Let' investors, corporate landlords or private individuals wishing to rent their homes. Each of our clients benefits from the wealth of expertise within Bennett Mason’s Lettings and Property Management department.
The staff at Bennett Mason are our most important marketing tool, they are highly experienced with a great knowledge and understanding of the local property market. They are committed to delivering a high standard of service to all our present and future clients. As such, we provide competent professional advice aimed at relieving you of the stresses and anxieties associated with property rentals; guiding you away from the potential pitfalls within this complex and ever-changing market.
Our office is equipped with the latest sophisticated criteria matching software, allowing our staff to arrange and record all viewings for your property. We don’t use part time viewing staff or rely on landlords to do all of the viewings – the more we interact with the tenant the better we’ll understand their needs.
Our office is open 6 days a week, Monday to Friday 9am – 6.30pm (6pm on Friday) and Saturday 10am – 3pm. However, the majority of our viewings are conducted by our staff outside office hours to suit prospective tenants – often professionals who are not available during working hours.
All our client’s properties are automatically loaded onto our 'live' website which is constantly updated and attracts hundreds of visitors every day. The properties are also featured on all of the major property web portals including Rightmove, Findaproperty, Primelocation, Globrix, Zoopla and many more. Due to the ease of use of the internet, prospective tenants will view many rental properties during their search regardless of which agency is advertising. As a result, the most important factor is how the agent handles the initial enquiry. At Bennett Mason, we deal with all internet enquires within 1 hour during office hours and overnight enquires are dealt with first thing the next working day. Combined with local advertising this ensures that you have maximum marketing exposure for your property.
Finding a Suitable Tenant
Few landlords have the experience to sort the browsers from the genuine, qualified prospective tenants. By adopting thorough vetting procedures Bennett Mason can find you the right tenant with suitable references at the right level of rent as quickly as possible.
Once a suitable tenant has been found for you, Bennett Mason will ensure the 'move in' is as smooth and hassle free as possible. Whilst seeking to protect our client’s interests we will aim to build a sound working relationship with you and your tenant alike - a vital and important element throughout the term of the tenancy.
Prior to the commencement of the tenancy there are several important matters to consider such as mortgage/lessor consent. Bennett Mason can advise you regarding these matters.
We offer a free and no obligation market appraisal, please call us on 0207226 0770and we would be delighted to arrange an appointment to inspect your home or investment property. At the time of inspection, we will present our comprehensive marketing package and advise you on a current value for the property.
Full Property Management
Throughout the letting of your property it is essential that it is well managed on a regular basis to protect your investment. Residential property management is a complex and changing market. If you are unable to have a hands-on involvement in the day-to-day running of your property, our Full Property Management Service can help you avoid the pitfalls.
Our property management department aims to eliminate the hassles that many landlords experience. You’ll be allocated your own property manager who’ll inspect your property periodically during the rental, oversee any repairs and resolve any problems on your behalf. It’s here to ensure that your tenant takes care of your property and pays the rent on time.
Your property manager will arrange an inventory to ensure that the condition of your property and its contents are taken care of and nearing the end of the tenancy we’ll handle the renewal or the timely remarketing of your property to minimise any void periods, maximising the return on your investment.
Should you require any further information or have any questions in relation to lettings and property management please do not hesitate to contact our Finsbury Park Office on 020 7226 0770.
