Why use Hellards
  • paragraph

    A tailored approach to Lettings
    image cannot be displayed

    Hellards has been actively involved in property in Alresford and the surrounding area since 1988. In recent years, the lettings side of our business has grown enormously and is now ranks as one of the foremost lettings agencies in this area. We are large enough to have a generous pool of available properties, but small enough to ensure that we can still offer a personal and tailored service to both landlords and tenants alike. We have a specialist team dedicated solely to the lettings side of the business, who work alongside, and in tandem with, our busy sales department.

    From the moment you entrust your property to us, you will receive our undivided attention and can be assured of a professional approach from our experienced team. We will go to great lengths to make sure your property is looked after and this naturally involves us carefully vetting prospective tenants to minimise risk during the tenancy. If we are managing the property on your behalf, we will undertake regular inspections to keep an eye on how the property is being treated and will report back to you if we have any concerns. The property will be looked after, on a day-to-day basis, from our Alresford office, using trusted local contractors. You will, naturally, be consulted on any major expenditure that we consider necessary.

    Property Marketing

    Our aim is to secure a suitable tenant who will respect and care for your property, as if it were their own. Landlords want their property let speedily, which is why we invest in the best media to find a tenant in the shortest possible time. All properties are up-loaded to Rightmove, Zoopla and Primelocation, as well as our own Hellards website. We have an actively managed database of tenants who are on the hunt for letting properties in our area. Increasingly, tenants are wanting plenty of information in advance of booking a viewing. We therefore produce detailed floorplans as standard, as well as an informative property brochure with colour photos. This brochure will be 'matched' out to prospective tenants via the internet.

    In addition, our distinctive 'To Let' boards make our properties highly visible, and our prominent window display allows passing foot traffic on Broad Street to see what we have available. Enquiries are dealt with efficiently, with one of the team accompanying viewings and with regular feedback to yourself. We are happy to advise you on preparing your property for marketing, including tips to maximise its presentation and appeal to tenants.

    Looking after our Landlords
    image cannot be displayed

    There are numerous issues to consider when renting out your property, whether it is for investment or relocation purposes - current legislation, tax implications, money laundering, tenancy deposit legislation, Energy Performance Certificates - all of which can seem overwhelming and daunting. We are here to help guide you through the seemingly complicated process and take much of the paperwork and stress away from you. For your peace of mind, as well as the above, we will ensure the property complies with current legislation with regards to health and safety.

    Tenants' deposits are now required to be held in a Government-backed custodial deposit scheme. Hellards uses the scheme run by Deposit Protection Service (DPS). As well as providing a safe place for your tenants' deposit, DPS provides a dispute resolution service should a dispute arise at the end of a tenancy.

    At Hellards, we feel strongly that tenants deserve and should expect a professional and personal service. We try hard to work with you to help find your perfect home, with the minimum of stress. We normally have a wide variety of good quality properties available to let. For your peace of mind, we will ensure that each property complies with current health and safety legislation, even if we do not manage it ourselves.

    One of our friendly letting team will guide you through the referencing and application process. We are happy to advise you on how much you can afford to rent up to, based on your income, if you request our help. For your protection, your deposits will be transferred to a Government-accredited deposit scheme. The Deposit Protection Service (DPS) provides a safe haven for your money, as well as a dispute resolution service, should it be needed, at the end of your tenancy.

    Reserving a property
    When you have found the home you would like to rent, we will request an initial payment, equivalent to one week's rent (to be deducted from the first month's rent) in order to seize marketing and progress to the referencing stage.
  • paragraph

    References
    We use the services of a professional referencing agency, who will carry out a credit reference check, on your income source and landlord's reference (if applicable). In some circumstances, a guarantor may be required.

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      Definitely the best estate agents in town.
      3 months ago-I have recently rented my house through Hellards Estate agents in Alresford. All the staff are very friendly and professional. So much better than their local competitors in the town. Bradley was my main point of contact with the firm and couldn't be more helpful. I was under a tight timeframe and needed to find a tenant quickly. Bradley not only found excellent tenants quickly he arranged an excellent agreement which made the transaction financially on budget. I would not hesitate to recommend Hellards to anyone looking to rent or buy a property. Making moving home an easy and pleasant experience. Definitely the best estate agents in town. G P
