BRIAN HOLT LETTINGS AND PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

    Brian Holt Estate Agents are a family run business underpinned by old school values of excellent service and communication. The staff have a wealth of experience and the office occupies a prominent position in the fashionable heart of Earlsdon, Coventry whilst covering Coventry and South Warwickshire. 
  • paragraph

    Letting Your Property

    Untapped riches and easy profits? Or a minefield full of problems and traps? 

    I suppose the answer to this question is who you ask. For those who have purchased a property as an investment, lettings is the easy solution. Having a tenant occupying the property will ensure your property is not left vulnerable, whilst the rental income can do the same for your bank balance!

    However, like everything in life, letting a property is not guaranteed to be risk free, but you can limit your exposure. The legal burden of a landlord can be a heavy one. You are required to be up to date with land law, as with the housing market and to be on top of repairs.
  • paragraph

    Is there a happy medium?

    Using the right agent will make your property work for you without you having to work for it. Having a reputable agent with an impressive and above all contactable office is also a very desirable feature for tenants who want to feel secure in their new home. The better the service provided to tenants generally reflects in the quality of the tenants we attract. 
  • paragraph

    What does Brian Holt do?

    Our agency provides a service that delivers peace of mind from the initial letting to managing the end of tenancy. A quality agent will save the landlord money by reducing cost of repairs and maintenance whilst limiting exposure to voids (periods where the property is empty) and rent arrears. 

    A brief outline of the service we provide is as follows: 

    • Rental valuation prior to each tenancy;
    • Advice on repairs and anything that may affect the rental value;
    • Accompanied viewings with all prospective tenants;
    • Complete reference and background checks;
    • Prepare a legally binding tenancy agreement;
    • Dealing with utility companies at commencement of tenancy;
    • Provide detailed statement of accounts each month;
    • Conduct regular inspections of all managed properties;
    • Provide emailed reports of inspection to the landlord;
    • Ensure rent is paid at the required time;
    • Organise quotes for any maintenance and carry out any repairs;
    • Carry out professional check outs and administer the deposit.

    Above all, our team are friendly, courteous and firmly committed to acting in the best interest of our clients.

    Lee Griffiths MARLA, Lettings Manager
    Working at Brian Holt's since? 
    I joined Brian Holt in February 2016. 

    The most enjoyable aspect of your job? 
    I enjoy meeting new people, and helping them safely let out their properties. I also enjoy keeping up to date with new legislation, and implementing new legislation to ensure our clients are protected. 

    Why use Brian Holt's? 
    The lettings industry itself is unregulated, but we take our roles in protecting our clients investments very seriously. We are voluntarily regulated by RICS and are also members of ARLA. In short, we are a professional agency that dot all of the i's and cross all of the t's. 

    Hobbies? 
    I'm a keen photographer, and I'm also quite musical. I've played the piano since I was four years old, and can also play the saxophone. 

    Interesting fact?
    My original career plan when I was younger was to join the Royal Air Force. I attended the 'Air Cadets' (Air Training Corps) for many years. I once held one of the highest average marksmanship scores for the whole of the Warwickshire & Birmingham Wing (Air Training Corps). This is quite ironic really, considering that I was unable to join any of the armed forces due to my eyesight!
