Landlords

Why become a landlord with Sycamore Lettings?

Whether you are a professional landlord with a large portfolio of properties or looking to rent a single house for the first time then we can help.

 

At Sycamore Lettings we give you more:
  • More value for money
  • More personalised service
  • More prospective tenants
  • More good night’s sleep
  • No VAT on our Management Fee*

 

Your investment is important to you, and your worry is those void periods, rent arrears and unexpected maintenance bills that could eat into your returns.

 

We started out as a Private Landlord and know what keeps you awake at night and our service is built around keeping properties fully let, minimising the risk of rental arrears through state-of-the-art credit checking, and using independent first-class local tradesmen to keep a lid on maintenance costs.

 

As a private landlord we were frustrated with the poor levels of service offered by many letting agents. We found there to be two types of agent; the franchises agent whose fees were exclusive due to having to pay the franchise fee, and the agents with their own agenda – be it the ones who were trying to buy or sell properties whose advice was to sell cheap as no one was interested in renting on that street, or the ones who ran their own maintenance team and then the maintenance bills escalated. At Sycamore Lettings we offer a more transparent service.

 

All our tenants are referenced and credit-checked using the latest techniques, which means we can give a 100% guarantee that they will pay rent for the lifetime of the tenancy, or we will pay the legal cost of evicting them.**

 

If you are new to lettings we will take time to explain the rental process, and your legal obligations as a landlord. If you are making a new investment and are you looking for the best yield possible without compromising future capital appreciation. We believe that our landlords get a better yield by using our service than managing the property themselves even after paying our fees with less void periods, less unpaid rents, and less damage to property. We are so confident that we will not charge you an exit fee should you wish to move your properties after the initial period.***
*As a relatively young business we are not yet registered for VAT so you save 20%.
** Providing that you follow our advice and don’t comprise the process.
*** The initial period is detailed on the landlord agreement.
