Why use an agent?
  • paragraph

    At Heston's our property management experience has shown us that tenants can be very unpredictable in their demands on your time and it can be a very difficult relationship to manage. If a tenant falls behind with rent for example by a few days, it's your property manager that makes that telephone call to your tenant reducing any uncomfortable situation for you. We are there to act on your instructions and you will have a full time property manager who will mediate on your behalf.

    How long does it take to rent out a property?

    This depends on the time of the year, the monthly rental price and the number of tenants looking. However, the process can be much quicker than the sales market and it is not unusual for us to market a property and let it within 2 weeks. We will give you advice about marketing your property to ensure that we get the maximum rent for you, the best calibre of tenant and the highest yields. As experts in the local market we are best placed to advise you of a realistic achievable rent and will create your marketing package accordingly.

    Is my tenant credit checked?

    Absolutely! We reference all our tenants. To build up an accurate picture of your prospective tenant we carry out a full credit check as well as obtaining references from their employers and previous landlords where appropriate. We believe that you need as much information as possible before you enter into a binding agreement with your prospective tenant.

    What is the TDS?

    In April 2007 The Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) came into affect. It was born out of the Housing Act 2004 and requires all landlords to register any deposits held against new tenancies drawn up after 6 April 2007. If the tenancy started before April 2007 and is not renewed (i.e. has lapsed into a periodic tenancy) then it falls outside the legislation. If you choose a Let Only Service we will pass the deposit to you and you will be responsible for registering it. If you chose a Fully Managed Service we will register the deposit on your behalf.

    I have been offered a cheaper service, why should I use Heston's?

    We are acutely aware that there are a number of agents who are offering a cut price service in the marketplace. There are estate agents who operate a letting department to improve cash flow while the selling sector is depressed. There are others who just cut corners. We believe this is a specialist job and know the pitfalls of not doing it properly. We are approached by many landlords each year that elected to go for a cut price service and sadly got just that. There are too many stories of tenants that have been allowed to move in without taking up proper references, tenancy agreements that do not protect the landlord's interests as they should, rent that has not been charged and therefore not collected, inappropriate tenants put into properties who have caused £1000s of damage, notices that have been served incorrectly or late, deposits that have not been registered and so on. One of the major complaints we hear, however, is that agents just do not communicate with their clients as they should. At Hestons, w e have competitively  priced our service and, with the personnel and systems that we have in place, your   asset will be looked after to ensure maximum profit - and we will do just that.

      Market Appraisals

      We pride ourselves on offering accurate and honest valuations, alongside supporting evidence in the form of direct comparables of recently sold properties. It is critical to go to market at the right price to ensure you take advantage of the early interest. It is unfortunately common within the industry for agents to 'over value' in order to secure an instruction, safe in the knowledge that their client is tied into a lengthy contract giving them time to push the price down.

      To give our clients added comfort we do not ask for a lengthy contract, but rather a simple rolling contract requiring just 10 days notice to terminate at any time.

    • paragraph

      Marketing
      Our responsibility is to show your property in its very best light, and to as wide an audience as possible. We have an enviable reputation for excelling at both. We have a photography and design team who produce a tailored marketing package focused on a property's strengths and designed to generate maximum interest. Furthermore we ensure we tailor the marketing material to take advantage of different media platforms - from beautiful printed brochures to 360º virtual tours that work in your hand on a mobile device.
    • paragraph

      Coverage
      As for coverage we more than just cover the traditional bases. We see it becoming increasingly important to access the London market, which is why we work alongside 400 independent London agents, who are incentivised by way of a shared commission structure to offer Hestons' properties to their clients.
