Our services

    No two lets are the same...That's why we offer a bespoke service tailored to our Landlords' needs.Here at Helen Breeze we specialise in lettings and property management within Sevenoaks and the surrounding areas. So as a Landlord you can expect a first-class and personal service from professional and ARLA trained staff, all backed with expert knowledge of the area and local property market.

    From the minute you contact us we'll make sure you receive a free valuation and initial consultation so you know if you are ready for the rental market.

    Our fees are all inclusive, so you will not be surprised with extra agency fees for additional visits or fees added to contractors' invoices.

    Residential Lettings Service
    When you contact us our lettings team will ensure you receive a free rental valuation. Your home will then be photographed and all the particulars set up within our system ready for advertising both online and within the local newspaper. We will carefully monitor prospective tenants, carry out accompanied viewings and obtain financial references. Once a tenant has been found we will provide an ARLA approved tenancy agreement and arrange tenancy deposit protection. Professional inventories will also be drawn up and we will organise all the moving in particulars including an inventory and rent collection. When the tenancy draws to a close we offer a check out service or reissue a new tenancy agreement if the tenant is staying on.

    Property Management Service
    As part of our property management service we carry out regular property visits to ensure the property is in good order and resolve any maintenance issues. We will also manage any routine maintenance, ad hoc maintenance and repairs as well as emergency call outs should they be needed. Our contractors are all carefully checked to ensure they meet required standards, have professional qualifications and correct insurances.

    Estate & Block Management Service
    Our experienced and professional team look after the day-to-day concerns which accompany owning, or being responsible for a block of flats or a large estate. Generally we work closely with Resident Management Companies who require management of any block of flats, grounds or estate but do work with individual landlords who own large estates made up of smaller lets and properties.

    Overseas Landlords Service
    A large number of our Landlords are overseas and so we are used to handling every part of the let. The cost of this is included in our full management service. Individual owners will need to obtain approval from the Centre for Non Residents to receive income gross of tax. We will be happy to send you the relevant paperwork, or you can click on the link:http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/cnr/nrl1.pdf. If the property is owned by an overseas company another form will be required.

    Caretaker Service
    If you are going away but do not wish to let your property, we offer a caretaking service. The cost of this will depend on your requirements and starts from £144 inclusive of VAT per calendar month.

    If you have a property and are thinking of letting your property, please contact us. We will be happy to talk through what to expect when letting, the different levels of service we offer, our fees and what we do to help you prepare and protect your property.
