As well as full management and let-only services for lettings we also offer full building and refurbishment services for all of our clients. We specialize in high specification, low cost, quality refurbishments. From minor cosmetic work, to full-scale basement and attic conversions, we have the experience and knowledge to give your property that “wow” factor that will have prospective tenants queuing up. We aim to work with our clients to achieve an end result that you'll be happy with but more importantly, so will your tenants.
Ultimately, we know what tenants want. We know what tenants want because they tell us and we listen. We often meet landlords who have tried to refurbish their properties themselves and whilst they've often done a good enough job, they've got it completely wrong for the market at which they're aiming. The rental market in Leeds, particularly in the student sector, is hugely competitive and it's vital that your house looks the part. If it doesn't then the chances are that there are plenty of other houses out there that will. We find that money spent in the right areas not only makes the property more appealing but will achieve a higher rent, a better class of occupier and peace of mind that you have a more secure investment in the long term. If you get it right, then the elimination of voids and the increase in rent you can get from having a superior property will more than likely pay for any initial outlay in no time at all.
In a nutshell, pretty much anything! From minor cosmetic works, to full top to bottom refurbishments including conversions and extensions, we have approved contractors that we work with closely to offer all aspects of building works and property maintenance. We operate very much on the principle that no job is too big, or too small.
Both of our Directors have extensive experience and a background in property development and over the last decade have built up relationships with skilled teams of builders that specialise in high spec, low cost building work with the minimum of fuss. Our managed landlords get access to special rates and concessions as well as the knowledge that all builders we use are fully insured and familiar with all current rules and regulations.
We'd be happy to show you some examples of properties we've recently refurbished including comments from some of the tenants and landlords involved, all of whom have been delighted with the end result. For full details please don't hesitate to get in touch. And don't forget that if you'd like us to look at even more than just the building side of proceedings, then check out our increasingly popular From Let to Buy Service which offers assistance at every step involved in the purchasing and developing of a property for the rental market.
