Let your property with Robert Ellis
We’re one of the largest independent letting agents specialising in the area to the West of Nottingham and we’ve now opened new offices in Arnold to extend our services across central and North Nottinghamshire.
With four main letting branches occupying prominent high street positions in Beeston, Long Eaton, Stapleford and Arnold, these complement our existing nearby sales offices within the towns. As a firm of Chartered Surveyors, we have provided a professional lettings service to clients for more than 25 years on both a residential and commercial basis. The branches now manage over 1600 properties in the Nottingham area for both individual private landlords and larger portfolio clients.
With many people choosing to rent a property rather than purchase, our business has grown dramatically over recent years and we are now letting property across three counties, with our portfolio of both available and managed properties continuing to expand.
The Property Management Team is headed by Director Guy Hall who oversees the four main Letting Branches: the Long Eaton branch managed by Clair Jones, Louise Mitchell managing the Beeston and Arnold branches and Wendy West based at the busy Stapleford branch. All can offer many years of experience in the local residential letting market and are ably supported by their specialist teams.
Perhaps you’re an existing Landlord looking to expand your portfolio or simply looking for a safe pair of hands to take over the management of current tenants. Whatever your needs, we’re here to guide you through all aspects of Rental Legislation, Safety obligations and the Lettings and Management process.
At Robert Ellis, our experienced team of Lettings Valuers will provide accurate pricing guidelines before you offer your property to the market. We operate as experts in your local area and realistic pricing will keep void periods to a minimum and maximise your return on investment. We’ll consider similar properties already let in your area as well as recent Lets agreed to provide you with a balanced view of value to get tenants interested quickly. Our friendly and courteous staff know your area well and are continually liaising with prospective tenants searching for a suitable property. A sound knowledge of local schools and amenities, nearby local employers, main transport communications links and shopping/leisure facilities all help to enable tenants to make an informed choice.
Professional Photographers, Virtual Tours and Video…
Our dedicated professional photographers capture high-definition images to showcase your property in the best possible way. Expertly edited virtual tours are a perfect way to get a tenant interested, a bespoke tour of your property available 24/7 means you’re never off the market!
Social media provides endless marketing opportunities and quality tenants are actively sourcing accommodation through these platforms. We’ve got a great following on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and regularly run campaigns to promote our properties alongside traditional portals like Rightmove, Zoopla and On the Market.
An extensive Tenant Demand…
Our register of fully qualified prospective tenants continues to grow and ensures a ready supply of suitable viewers, all of them eager to proceed quickly. Company lets are a speciality and with many of the main ‘Blue Chip’ employers based within our area, we are in constant contact to advise them of available properties to let.
As a landlord, you are provided with regular feedback from the moment marketing commences. We offer a full accompanied viewing service, the vast majority are carried out by our trained staff who are best placed to relay all relevant feedback, good or bad, to provide you with an accurate view of the market place.
Finding the Right Tenant…
As members of the RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) we are governed by its code of practice providing peace of mind for all our clients.
Our rigorous Tenant referencing service through an independent referencing company provides all Landlords with a detailed background check on any potential tenants. When suitable tenants have been confirmed and a start date agreed, we’ll prepare and provide copies of the appropriate Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements and sign on your behalf. As a Landlord, recent changes to Government Legislation means the legal obligations you have towards your tenants have become more onerous than ever. It is vital you are professionally advised from the start as mistakes can be costly and time consuming.
Our Tenancy Deposit certification system ensures you comply with all aspects of the tenancy deposit scheme to ensure that your tenants money is properly protected.
Regular internal inspections and Landlord feedback throughout the let ensure you are kept fully up to date during the term of the tenancy and we’ll also advise you of any remedial works required during this time. Handling repairs in a timely and professional manner is hugely important to both protect the fabric of the property and to ensure the tenants quiet enjoyment during the tenancy term. We can attend to the vast majority of day to day repairs and maintenance issues but in all cases, will gain your approval in the first instance.
Our dedicated Accounts Department will provide you with monthly statements outlining rents received, expenses incurred etc. and are always on hand to assist where necessary.
At the End of the Tenancy…
To ensure potential void periods are kept to a minimum, it is essential that a thorough final inspection is carried out at your property when the tenant eventually vacates. The original prepared inventory will be checked over thoroughly to ensure everything is in order. Final utility readings will be taken and all keys logged back in. Any concerns regarding final condition will be negotiated with the tenants and if necessary, where arbitration is required, we will handle all aspects on your behalf.
We have hundreds of satisfied Landlord and Tenants and would love to talk to you. Please give us a call and we’ll arrange a free no obligation market appraisal.
