Burns Estates have a unique & proactive approach to Lettings. Strong links with local companies & relocation agents ensure that all of our properties are let swiftly and most importantly to the right calibre tenants.
In the current market it isn’t difficult to secure tenants as demand is outstripping supply. So when another other Letting Agent tells you they can let your property quickly – that may be true. However securing the right tenant is key to success. This is where we set ourselves aside from the competition. We will ensure we listen to your requirements and match the correct tenant to your property.
In the current economic climate, choosing the right letting agent to look after your property has never been more important. You are entrusting your property to an Agency which may be one of the biggest assets you own. At Burns Estates we appreciate the enormity of this decision so will do all we can to ensure you receive the professional advice and direction you require.
Our core values are: HONESTY, INTEGRITY & TRANSPARENCY
The process of letting a property is, in theory, a very simple process. Tenants are registered by an agent, shown an appropriate property according to their needs, fully referenced and then move into their new home. However this theory is so easily corrupted when this process is not followed.
Other Letting Agencies simply take a name and contact number when booking in viewings; they don’t register the applicant fully which leads to problems further down the line. For example; the prospective tenant has a dog, however your Agent hasn’t asked whether they have any pets? This could result in tenants moving into your property with a pet in direct contravention to your lease. Or perhaps your Agent has made the assumption that the prospective tenant is working full time. Yet when it comes to the referencing process it appears they are only working part time and receive top up housing benefit. Therefore in accordance with the referencing companies guidelines the prospective tenant would fail referencing or would need to supply a Guarantor. All of these situations are so easily avoided when you spend time qualifying and getting to know your clients – like we do here at Burns Estates.
Adhering to a strict registration process we take time to get to know our applicants to avoid situations such as this. Our application vetting process combined with detailed referencing Burns Estates aim to find every Landlord their perfect tenant. And unlike other Agents we are also dedicated to making sure every tenant finds their perfect home.
Our unique approach to Lettings makes our tenants feel special from the very start of our working relationship. This encourages tenants to be honest & communicate effectively with us throughout their Tenancy.
We look after our tenants from the day they register their details with us. With an active database of clients who are spoken to daily. It is vitally important to establish a good rapport immediately to ensure tenants trust us to look after their interests. We find that our unique approach often leads to long term tenancies which results in security of income for you as a Landlord.
Other Agents purely focus on letting properties to the first tenant who shows interest/pays fees; however we at Burns Estates are here to look after your investment. We qualify our applicants and match them to your specific requirements.
We understand how easy it can be for a Letting agent to take the first person who walks through the door, regardless of financial position, references or quality of applicant. As an ARLA Licensed Agency our prime objective is to match the right tenants with the right property, ensuring both Landlord and tenants are happy, and encouraging long term lets for our clients. This means securing rental income for Landlords & security of a longer term Tenancy for Tenants. This allows both parties to plan their expenditure and minimise future extension fees making the process of renting as cost effective as possible.
Once the Tenancy has started you will have your very own dedicated Property Manager to ensure you have a direct point of contact throughout the Tenancy.
Other agents rely on old fashioned marketing methods; waiting for the property to go live on the internet & waiting for the phone to ring. However with our proactive approach we make our applicants aware of new properties coming onto the market before they hit Rightmove. We are busy arranging viewings for your rental property whilst other agents are sitting around and waiting for the business to come to them.
Effective communication is the key to any successful relationship & with Burns Estates you can always rely on us to look after your best interests.
Our proactive marketing approach results in a great deal of success and therefore we are constantly looking for more quality properties for our registered clients.
We have a range of services which can be tailored to suit your needs & requirements. Whether you are an experienced portfolio Landlord or you are a first time Landlord and need a helping hand we can help at every step of the way.
