Watson is incredibly proud of our interactive lettings service for residential landlords. Our competitive management fees are primarily based on a percentage of rent collected meaning we have the common goal of ensuring your income is fruitful and consistent. In addition we offer alternative rate structures for portfolios of properties - tailored to ensure that our services maximise your profitability.
We can also provide a let-only service for those who prefer to self-manage their assets. We would however point out that during the term of most inaugural tenancy agreements the cost of our let-only and full-management services are often not vastly different, and you'll find our management service so stress free and comprehensive, that you'll wonder why you ever did it yourself?
Naturally your property will be marketed to the widest possible audience through a wide variety of both online and traditional media, ensuring demonstrable market value is always obtained. It is worth noting that amongst other popular web-portals, Watson are a founder members of 'OnTheMarket' the UK's newest property portal which showcases properties before any other property-portal, with the endorsement of both ARLA & NAEA.
All new tenants are subject to a comprehensive and detailed assessment before moving in, so that you have the highest piece of mind that your property will be treated with respect and that rent-payments are made in a timely manner. All tenant-deposits are lodged with the Deposit Protection Service (DPS) in accordance with statutory regulation at no cost or hassle to the landlord.
Watson are specialist property managers through and through, and whereas most letting agents simply match properties to tenants and are reactive to maintenance, Watson's two centuries of award winning property management experience gives unrivalled reassurance that your asset is in the best possible hands. We offer an infrastructure which ensures functions such as credit control, accountancy and property maintenance are undertaken in a manner that high-street agencies simply do not have the resources to match. Our service is hands-on, practical and professional, putting us at the forefront of residential lettings' support.
If your property is situated within an apartment block or a managed estate then our integral understanding of block-management will ensure that your tenants are aware of the law, rules and regulations relating to the development from the very outset, via our bespoke tenancy agreement, which can include important restrictive clauses within your lease. We make the fine print clear at the start to avoid potential disagreements later and this will also ensure that the service charges you incur are kept reasonable and the capital value of your asset continues to grow to it's full potential - maximising overall return and minimising stress.
