About Clare Price owner Prime Surrey Lets
I started a portfolio of properties with my husband 9 years ago. Together we saw the opportunity to invest in property which necessitated finding quality tenants. We decided to find our own tenants and have successfully let all our properties quickly and satisfactorily with minimal void periods. Nine years on we have never used a High Street agent. At the beginning of 2008 I had three flats to let simultaneously. All the properties were successfully let and tenants moved in within two weeks!
Based on my own experience as a landlord, together with the benefits of being a member of the National Landlord’s Association who keep me ‘up to date’ on legislation and any changes I was able to develop my own lettings business. Whilst the high street is littered with agents I like to think I have that personal rapport that can be missing from a high street agent. I have enjoyed the whole process and can confidently say I am on good terms with all my landlords and tenants.
People find themselves living in rented accommodation for many different reasons and stories abound of bad tenants and landlords, but my belief is that there are many good tenants and landlords and that with professional referencing and clear communication from the outset they can be successfully brought together. My aim is to bring this about by offering a professional, cost effective and fair deal for both landlords and tenants.
The key to a successful let is PREPARATION and COMMUNICATION.
