  • paragraph

    With demand for affordable, premium housing at its highest level in several years, London landlords rarely struggle to find tenants for their properties. Their real dilemma is sourcing a quality tenant and retaining them as long as possible to evade any possible 'void' periods.

    The Carl Specter's team have been sourcing and retaining excellent tenants for our landlords across South West London for almost a decade. Our specialist lettings experts take great care to thoroughly reference check our tenants with the help of Home and Legal for Landlords who carry out all referencing on our behalf.

    Our trusted team of experts are accredited by PRS (Property Redress Scheme) and are trained to take tenant referencing very seriously. This means our landlords can enjoy peace of mind safe in the knowledge that their property is in the best possible hands.

    How To rent Your Property 
    image cannot be displayed

    Preparation is key

    We recommend marketing your property around 6-8 weeks in advance of when you would like your tenant to move in. This gives us plenty of time to ensure your property is promoted to as wide an audience as possible through our portals and strategic marketing techniques.

    You should also work with your dedicated lettings manager to plan a budget and decide how much to ask for the monthly rent. Take care to factor in the cost of your gas safety and Energy Performance certificates as well as inventories, CO2 and smoke alarms as well as check ins and agency commission.

    If you have current tenants, don't forget to let them know they will be receiving calls from us requesting permission for viewings.

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      Marco Baptista
      I found Carl Specter a breath of fresh air to deal with. Took the time to understand our situation and was very knowledgeable about the market conditions. If anything the exceeded our expectations in achieving a much higher price than we expected.For a change, it was a case of underpromising and over delivering. HIGHLY RECOMMEND their services and would give them a 20 out of 10 and that is being conservativeWell done Carl Specter, keep the flag flying high for estate agents as there is a handful out there I would not touch with a barge poleComment on agent feesVery good and competitive. Value for money without a shadow of a doubt
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Mrs Purnel
      We have just let our flat and Carl specter was extremely professional and reasonably priced agent around sw9. After researching for the most affordable estate agents around where we live we have found Carl Specter.Carl came in to value our house within minutes after speaking over the phone later in the day they have emailed me the description and pictures of our flat so we could approve what was going live on the websites( none of the other agents offered that).Once we approved that the property was live on the websites and we had viewings going on next day. They have done about five viewings in two days and they have found us a lovely couple who has been our tenants for a couple of months now.A quick and smooth process I recommend. We can't be happier with our new tenants.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Mr Patel
      Brenda and Carl were superb agents to have dealings with on the rental of a flat in Willesden Green . They were incredibly professional, helpful, knowledgeable about the property and was willing to put the time and effort in the ensure that the process was as smooth as possible and that I was kept informed as to the progress at all times. He was readily available to answer any questions I (or my multiple family members) had and I would highly recommend both as an agent. In fact, I will be doing my utmost to persuade them to be the agent when I go to to buy in a few years' time!

    Selling your property 
    • paragraph

      First steps 
      How to Sell your Property

      We are here to help you get the best price for your home, in a time frame that suits you. You may be wondering how we do that so well?

      For us, it's all about the service we provide, good communication and keeping things simple. In fact, customer service and maximizing the sale price is at the heart of everything we do. We believe if we get this right, your sale will progress smoothly to a successful completion.

      We also listen carefully to your requirements. We find out exactly what you want and need, then offer sound and well-informed advice to help you achieve it. We provide the best possible marketing coverage and creative marketing solutions, to get you the best possible price. We will create a bespoke moving plan just for you. Why not contact us to find out more?

      When is the best time to market my property?

      We can find a buyer for your home at any time of the year, and there is no part of the year better than any other for selling. The areas we cover do not show any major seasonal variations, and our sales have shown to be spread evenly over the year, perhaps with a slight increase in Spring.

      People are always moving, getting married, getting divorced, changing new jobs or circumstances. There are hundreds of reasons people move, and we are well positioned to sell your property at any time.

      That said, some houses will sell easier at different times of the year. For example, a rural home with far reaching views will always be more appealing on a lovely Spring or Summers day than in the middle of a bleak winter! However, an urban flat in a city really doesn't matter when it's marketed.

      How long will it take to sell my property?

      On average we sell our properties within a 6-12 week period making us one of the fastest selling agents in our area. Bear in mind that this does vary from house to house. If you have a particular timeframe in mind, for example, 2 weeks or 10 weeks because of another property or job commitment we will always do our best to pull out the stops to ensure it's sold in your required timeframe. We are always needing more properties, and homes of any type to sell, as we have a waiting list of the actively searching buyer.

      How should I prepare my property for sale?

      Preparing your home for sale is one of the things we can advise on, and below we illustrate some of the key things that have worked well for us in the past.

      Outside

      First impressions are very important. Stand at the front of your property and view it with a fresh eye. If you have a front garden or driveway, make sure the grass is cut, any rubbish or bins are removed, borders are weed free, shrubs are trimmed, and the porch is cobweb free. If the drive is not large consider parking your car elsewhere to give more of an impression of space. If it's spring or summer and you have no flowers planted, it may be worth buying and planting a few to provide a splash of color.

      Interior

      If you are moving, it would rarely make sense to spend much money on improving your property just to sell. Better to save it for your new home. It would, however, be sensible to carry out any small repairs that may be required, to give the impression that the property has been well maintained. If any rooms need decorating, choose a light and neutral color, which would appeal to a wider range of purchasers. If you are a dog owner, remember that not everyone is a pet lover, so have someone take Offenbark for a walk during viewings.

      Viewings

      Make sure your property is warm and well lit when you are expecting viewers, as this will make it feel more homely. If carrying out the viewing yourself, take your time, don't rush the process, and remember that there is no need to talk all the time. Give them time to think and get the feel of the place, and imagine the property as their own. For most purchasers, the property has to feel right, as well as meet their preconceived specifications.

      Ensure your property spotlessly clean

      Clean, clean, clean - we know it's obvious but it really works. Make sure the kitchens, bathrooms and every visible part of the house are absolutely spotless. Potential buyers like to envisage themselves in your house, and ensuring there is no dust, dirt or stains around will help get the best offer. If you've already moved out or if you're too busy to stay on top of things, consider hiring a cleaning service to stop by every couple of weeks. Ensure that the toilet doors are closed, and the shower screen is 100% free of limescale!

      Clear out the clutter and personal possessions

      You want buyers to focus on how awesome your property is, not how messy it looks. Get rid of the shoes, old tables, and second-hand furniture and tidy up each room to leave a clean, sparkling free and open space for visitors to imagine living in. Any of your personal possessions that you can do without for the time of marketing, should be put away leaving bare, straight, uninterrupted surfaces that provide the feeling of space. Particularly ornaments, souvenirs, and family photos. Although personal to you, they are not to the viewer, and clear shelves and space can improve the overall feel of the rooms.

      Make something delicious and sweet, and put on some coffee

      It's an age-old piece of advice, but the human psychological value is well proven. The smells of a house can influence buyers, and having a warm cozy baking scent can sub-consciously influence the chances of getting a good offer. Not a baker? Fake it with a scented candle and air freshener - next best thing!

      Bring nature inside

      Ensure you have some newly purchased and suitably sized plants around the house, if possible with flowers. Potted plants or a few pretty buds in a vase can help bring energy into space, fill in empty corners and even draw attention to features you want buyers to notice. Just make sure the plants are in good health (and bug-free!).

      Post-viewing feedback

      Take notice of any post-viewing feedback we may provide. If several viewers have the same comments, it makes sense if possible to do something about it.
