Supporting our Landlords every step of the way 
  • paragraph

    GL & Co has been letting and managing properties in West Sussex for over twenty years and our business is ever expanding. We believe our success is based on a strong commitment to provide a professional yet friendly service, great attention to detail and a desire to provide real value for money with many of our landlords and tenants echoing these sentiments. 

    With the working population becoming more transient and house prices continuing to make it very hard for first time buyers to jump onto the property ladder, many more people are choosing to rent rather than buy. This can provide more flexibility than home ownership as it does not tie up capital and has meant that the number of good, reliable tenants has increased - and continues to do so. 

    Changes in legislation in recent years have allowed landlords to let their properties safe in the knowledge that they can regain possession at the end of the tenancy. However, other legislation and changes in the nature of tenants have forced improvements to the standard of typical rental accommodation and required landlords to comply with more regulation.  At times this can be confusing and quite daunting, especially for the first time landlord. 

    The Lettings Team at GL & Co can help you to attract the best tenants, minimise rental voids and ensure that you are meeting all of your legal obligations.

      This is the best rental experience yet!
      I have recently rented a flat from yourselves - your team consistently delivered exemplary customer service from start to finish. The whole process from expressing our interest in the flat, to moving in, was quick, efficient, and stress free. You were in regular contact with me throughout the rental process, and made sure there were no delays. I would recommend renting a property through GL as they are a friendly and helpful letting agency, who deliver their promises, and in my experience this is rare! I have rented properties for over 15 years and this is the best rental experience yet!

    A guide to preparing your house for sale
    • paragraph

      If you're looking to sell your house and maximise the value then it's worth spending some time and effort on it before the viewers start to come round. To assist you with this, we have put together our top recommendations of things to do that can really help sell a property from an estate agents viewpoint:
    • paragraph

      Get ahead and get a board - even if you live in a cul-de-sac, you may have people who use your road to turn round and who will see a For Sale board. Your neighbours will also see your home is for sale and will tell other people, helping spread the word. Make sure the name or number of your house is clearly visible so people can find it easily.    
      First impressions count - from our experience, people make their minds up very quickly. Make sure the front garden is tidy, lawn mowed and hedges trimmed. Put the bins out of sight if possible so people don't focus on these. Flowering plants in pots by the front door make a good impression and make sure the front door itself is clean and well painted. It's worth getting those windows washed as well. 

      Make a snag list and action it - all of it! All those jobs that you've meaning to do but never got round to, now is the time to do them. Potential buyers will notice a windowsill that needs a coat of paint or a cracked floor tile that needs replacing and this could put them off.
    • paragraph

      Presentation, presentation, presentation - it's all about the presentation! Inside, declutter and tidy up - ask friends who opinions you trust for their thoughts and ideas of how you can make the house most saleable. If you have a lot of belongings to declutter, ask friends if they can help you with storage whilst you are selling.  
      Right furniture, right rooms - people often find it hard to visualise how they can use rooms. If you have a study that could be used as a bedroom, it can be worth putting a bed in whilst selling the property so people can see that a bed will fit. If you have a dining room you are using as a playroom try and show it as both to appeal to the widest possible audience.

      Leave it to us - we accompany all of our viewings as the experts in selling homes. If you can take the children, pets or relatives out whilst we conduct a viewing then it means the viewers can really focus on the property itself - make sure the radio and TV is off as well to allow people to concentrate on your home. Leave interior doors and lights on to make the property look as light and airy as possible.
    • paragraph

      Different strokes for different folks - everyone is looking for something different in a home and we can show your property to viewers focusing on the aspects that we know are important to them, detailing how it can meet their needs.   
      Get ready, set go! Once your house is on the market, think about your next move and where you are going. Viewers often ask about vendors position and how flexible they can be on dates, so it is well worth thinking about this in advance of agreeing a sale. 
    • paragraph

      With over 75 years combined property experience in our West Sussex offices, the team here at GL & Co have sold a fair few homes. Our recommendations should help you sell your home quickly and maximise its' value at the same time.

    A Guide for Buyers
    • paragraph

      GL & Co have been selling homes for over 20 years and from our experience there are four main reasons why people should buy houses:
    • paragraph

      Equity: Home ownership is about investment. When you buy a home, there are associated costs such as solicitors and stamp duty but over time you should make that money back as equity builds in the property. By paying the mortgage each month, you are investing in your home and making it your property - if you pay rent to a landlord each month the money makes the property his, not yours! Historically, property values usually appreciate each year. Although prices can dip, generally the market recovers in the long term. Owning your own home is about investment. 
    • paragraph

      Ownership: As mentioned above, through paying the mortgage each month you make the property your own. What an opportunity! If you rent, you usually have very neutral décor and are very restricted as to putting up pictures and shelves etc - you can't really tailor things to your taste. On the other hand, if you own the property you can make changes to your heart's content - you can decorate, change the kitchen and/or bathroom, landscape the garden, renovate or build an extension (subject to planning permission!). It's your home and you can really go to town on making it yours - GL & Co can even supply you with the interior designer to assist you!
    • paragraph

      Predictability: Costs are predictable - well, if you have a fixed-rate mortgage it's predictable. If you like to know exactly what you'll be paying every month regardless of what interest rates do then fixed-rate is designed for you - the higher fee to secure the product is probably worth it for the stability element. It means the payment amount is fixed for a certain period, so if its £800 per month now then it'll be £800 each month for the term of the fixed-rate deal. The fixed-rate stability enables you to make solid financial plans and budget effectively - people on variable rate deals are seeing low monthly repayments at the moment but if interest rates rise so will their monthly payments and they could reach a point where these start to become unmanageable. Please contact us if you need to find a mortgage adviser as GL & Co have several local advisers we can recommend to you. Generally, owning a home means you'll have a reasonably predictable list of outgoings. Even the big purchases are predictable - most roofs last a good 50 years (or more) whilst each year you may need to pay for the gutters to be cleaned etc.
    • paragraph

      Good Deals: If you have some money for a deposit and a regular income, its worth talking to a local reputable mortgage broker and the team at GL & Co about which homes we have that could work for you. Owning your own home can be one of the best feelings in the world; to come home from work and shut the door on the world and enjoy your haven - it's time to take that step!

      Premier Selection
      The area we cover in West Sussex is a target destination for many prosperous buyers moving out of London and other parts of the U.K or overseas. We also attract buyers from within the immediate area. Buyers are drawn to West Sussex by the convenient transport links to London, access to major airports and motorways, excellent schools and fine local amenities. At GL & Co we understand this and use our unrivalled experience to match people to property in a highly effective and professional manner. The key to marketing the many individual homes we sell is to reach a worldwide market place via our Mayfair and local offices. The brochures we produce with location and floor plans make a great first impression and this encourages keen viewings. We attract buyers that aspire to live in some of the best homes in West Sussex and our reputation together with the extensive knowledge of the area consistently achieves excellent results. Our Premier Selection service includes extensive marketing in the press and the internet with specific focus on making the individual homes stand out from the crowd. Dedicated sales executives look after our clients and accompany all viewings. The team at GL & Co can design a marketing campaign that is specific to your individual home. Through our extensive connection with the national media we can also obtain favourable rates in the press, which we are happy to pass on to our clients.

      Auction Department
      We have  an Auction Department in house at GL & Co to offer our clients an alternative method of selling. Rather than the traditional auction method, we have launched the Modern Method of Selling which is a more client-friendly process, still based around a fixed timescale but allowing longer periods for exchange and completion to further accommodate the residential buyer and seller.  
      To give a brief overview of the modern method of selling, the keys points include:  
      • Reservation fee paid within 48 hours of auction completion (this is a reservation fee and does not form part-payment of the final selling price. This can vary so please check the terms & conditions against each property) 
      • 28 days for exchange of contracts 
      • 28 days for completion of contracts (Maximum 56 day time frame, but it can be done sooner!) 
      • A more client friendly process allowing time for buying with a traditional residential mortgage

      Please contact one of the team to find out more about the modern method of selling.

      Having purchased your house in the country, you may well be in need of some management advice, particularly if this is your first home with land attached.

      We offer a range of services tailored to suit the individual needs of each landowner's unique requirements. We can provide:

      • Seller Testimonial

        Constant source of support 
        Guy Leonard & Co were a constant source of support....when I needed a great deal of reassurance and encouragement. I cannot speak too highly of the care and consideration of all the staff I had contact with. You could not have given a better service to anyone than that I received from all concerned.
      • Seller Testimonial

        Unfailingly patient and pleasant to deal with 
        Always unfailingly, patient and pleasant to deal with in what was a difficult market. Always returned my calls if not available to speak straight away. Excellent - thank you all very much.
      • Seller Testimonial

        Professional & courteous at all times 
        Guy Leonard & Co were a pleasure to deal with, professional and courteous at all times. We would have no hesitation in recommending Guy Leonard to others.
      • Seller Testimonial

        Don't know how you could improve on my experience
        I don't know how you could improve on my very good experience. The whole business of moving is very stressful and all Guy Leonard & Co staff were always patient and understanding.

      Testimonials from Buyers

      • Buyer Testimonial

        Went above & beyond the call of duty
        Thank you for all your help over the last few months - above and beyond the call of duty and very much appreciated. It's nice to know that you can still get good old fashioned customer service. The term 'customer service' is quite often a contradiction in terms these days but not with you, thank you.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        Restored our faith in Estate Agents 
        Peter Hossack has restored our faith in Estate Agents. It is a great shame that GL&Co is the exception rather than the rule but at least they are there to maintain standards. Nothing was too much trouble and at times they were the only people we felt were helpful and constructive.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        We had quite a difficult transaction on the purchasing side but Guy Leonard & Co went well beyond what was expected to keep it on track and bring it to a conclusion.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        We will be recommending you to others 
        If other estate agents took the trouble to conduct their business like the team we dealt with at Guy Leonard & Co, then buying a house would be a pleasurable experience. We will be recommending you to others.
