Personal recommendation is our biggest source of new business.
As a landlord, your investment is important to you, and the Eight8 Property team aim to minimise the risk of void periods, rent arrears and unexpected maintenance bills, which could eat into your returns. Our service is built around keeping properties fully let. We use a national well-known credit referencing agency and, through state-of-the-art credit checking, and independent first-class local tradesmen, we are able to keep down maintenance costs.
High quality tenants
We attract high quality tenants because we offer one of the widest selections of well-presented properties and treat all tenants with respect and professionalism. We work hard to make their experience of renting a home as smooth as possible. This approach results in longer tenancies, fewer voids and tenants who pay their rent on time and don’t cause damage.
Our service starts with finding one tenant and can extend right up to the UK-wide management of a whole portfolio. We let properties, we collect rent, we can insure your property and its contents, and we transfer the rent to you promptly. We can also manage your properties to the extent that you need never get involved.
If you are new to lettings we are here to explain the rental process, and your legal obligations as a landlord.
Eight8 Property will provide realistic and achievable advice as to the current rental value of your property, taking into account the local market and the demand for properties like yours.
We attract hundreds of enquiries every week from prospective tenants. Our market share in the areas we operate means that we are often a first choice for tenants actively seeking a home to rent. We have quality properties that are well presented and easy to view, so this attracts quality tenants willing to pay premium prices.
We advertise all of our properties on all of the leading property portals, Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location, guaranteeing your property maximum exposure.
At Eight8 Property we pride ourselves not only on the quality of our properties but also on the quality of our tenants. We interview prospective tenants, check their credit record, take character references from an employer and, where possible, a previous landlord using an independent referencing company.
Our reputation has been built by keeping all our clients fully informed. From the day we list the property feedback is essential if you’re going to minimise the void periods and agree a rental. We provide feedback on viewers’ comments and make recommendations on price, presentation and furnishings.
The first month’s rent and deposit is collected prior to the tenant moving in. Our fees are deducted and any remaining funds will be forwarded by electronic transfer and a statement of account will be provided by email.
