Hansons realises that moving homes can be an extremely stressful process, which is why we are proud to offer a successful, stress-free service with no hidden agenda. We make every effort to keep registered buyers up-to-date with new properties, which we feel may be of interest and endeavour to give regular feedback to our vendors on all viewings arranged. We have built up a database of committed landlords, whose properties we manage on a day-to-day basis. Most landlords who register with us feel so comfortable with our services, that they regularly come back to us when they take on new properties. It is a reflection of their trust in our professionalism, that the majority of our landlords use our management service. This gives them the security of knowing, that the tenants monthly rent is backed up by an insurance cover against their inability to pay the rent at any stage during the term of the tenancy. Any landlord who is new to the rental market is given advice on knowledge of Tenancy Laws and all the information they require to proceed confidently.

When renting out your property the question of insurance must be addressed.
With Rent Guarantee insurance cover you prevent yourself from picking up someone else’s bill, which can end up being an expensive business. It could be that, at the start of a tenancy agreement your tenant has a good job and can easily afford to pay the rent. You feel reassured that this person has a good credit reference. However the tenant could be potentially unaware that 6 months from now, their employer may be required to make redundancies which could have a serious impact on their finances , which will become a problem for you. A sad story for all concerned. However, if we had been managing your property then you would have received a tenant referencing and tenant Rent Guarantee service.
Why do you need us?
In our modern hectic lives the question is, do you have the patience and resources to do it yourself? We offer to advertise your property, field your calls, are available 7 days a week for viewing, vetting tenants and drawing up contracts. We seek a number of references to check that tenants can afford the rent and are of reliable character. A professional credit check will show up any County Court Judgments or fraud and determine the tenant’s ability to afford the rent. This can be a costly and a time consuming business which is why it’s best to be handled by someone who knows what they’re doing. We provide specialist letting agreements and will also advise you on your obligations under safety regulations. We will also help you to understand compliance with fire and furnishings regulations. We draw up documentation and arrange signing of the agreement between you and the tenants. To protect your interests, paperwork must be complete and the deposit plus first month’s rent received prior to the tenant moving in. We offer specialist insurance to safeguard your rental income.
Hansons uses the very latest marketing methods to sell your home. We use digital photography both internally and externally to take pictures of your property. These pictures are then transferred to the system, we produce your property details and we then put your property onto our website. Our local expertise has been combined with the latest market intelligence information with the huge marketing power of the internet, to help you achieve a faster sale for the best price.
Our selling services
At HANSONS we understand how great the stress is of the house moving process is and we strive to make this process easier for our clients. A perfect example of this is that we provide a panel of ‘friendly’ solicitors, who provide a professional and fast conveyance service at great rates. Just another example of how we are always here to make our clients life simpler. Our communication with the solicitors is very good; the solicitors are specialist in residential conveyance. Their charging structure is clear at the outset. They have reliable systems for obtaining information speedily from local authorities and financial institutions. When you come close to exchanging contracts on a property (the legally binding part of the sale), speed is often of the essence, particularly if you are also in the process of buying another property. The last thing you want is to be held up by an inefficient solicitor.
Your property is listed on our website and attracts thousands of visitors a month. You can remain at arms length as we always accompany property viewings, we always send our experienced property consultants to show our property to its best advantage. In the unlikely event we do not receive an offer within an agreed fixed number of weeks, we will initiate a review. Unless the market is exceptionally slow it should just be a case of changing the marketing or asking price. If we cannot sell the property you will not have to pay our fee under our ‘No sale, No fee promise’. We believe in setting and maintaining high standards. Anyone can set up an agency, no qualification is currently needed. So professional credentials are an important indicator of an agency’s willingness to perform to accepted industry standards. We are committed to training and developing our consultants’ skills, which is reflected in our Investors in People accreditation. We like our service to revolve around what our customers prefer. To make sure we live up to or promise our Customer Services Director champions the concerns of customers.
