    Take the hassle out of finding your next tenant

    Even with experience, managing a property can be an extremely time consuming task, one that you probably don't have all the necessary time, to deal with yourself.

    If you own a property that you are thinking of letting for the first time, or even a seasoned landlord of several investment properties, we can remove this burden from you, if you take advantage of one of the many services and packages our management team can offer.

    You're never just a reference number here at Kristian Allan. We guarantee you will receive a personal and professional service individually tailored to your precise needs from our dedicated team.

    There is much to sort when you are letting out your property. To begin with you need to prepare your property ready to be let. This involves dealing with mortgage lenders, sorting out rent collection, insurance cover, utility bills, keys and inventories. There are also legal requirements to take care of, including obtaining an EPC, (Energy Performance Certificate); safety certificates for gas and appliances; smoke alarms, tax matters and so on. If you instruct Kristian Allan you have confidence all this will be sorted on your behalf.

    We prepare high quality property details with external and internal photographs. We make sure your property details reach the widest number of potential tenants and by making full use of the internet with our own website and other portals such as Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime location, we are confident of our abilities within acceptable timescales.

    We will arrange to carry out all viewings on your property, whether these be block viewings or individual.

    All prospective tenants are fully referenced and once checks are complete we will prepare the legal contract between yourselves and the tenant. We then let or manage the property dependent on which package you opt for, for the whole of the tenancy period, providing monthly rental payments and statements along the way. We will make regular inspections and report any repair issues as necessary.

    No one works harder than the Kristian Allan management team to deliver customer satisfaction. We believe the experience of letting and managing your property should be positive and fulfilling as well as financially rewarding.

    So, whether you are letting your first property or you are an experienced Buy To Let investor, we are the people you should be talking to.

    Have a look at the various options we have available and see which one is most suitable to your own circumstances. If you feel we can be of any help please do not hesitate to contact us.

      Selling your Property with Kristian Allan.

      Selling a house is probably considered by many to be one of the most traumatic experiences in life, but with our vast experience of wealth and knowledge, we will always endeavour to make the whole process of selling your home as easy as possible, making the transaction run smoothly and professionally from initial instruction through to final completion, ensuring we keep you informed of the progress every step of the way.

      We will happily arrange for one of our valuers to call at your property to offer you a FREE market appraisal, there is no obligation to this appointment and 'hard sell' is definitely not our game. We will take details of your property, which together with modern technology, our wealth of experience and prevailing market conditions will help us assess a true market value for your property. We will also advise on presenting your property, to generate as much interest as possible. Remember: First impressions do count.

      Once you are ready to instruct us in the sale of your property we will arrange to have photographs and measurements taken, so that we can prepare relevant marketing materials which will all include detailed free of charge floor plans, and as many professionally produced photographs as deemed necessary. At this stage we also need to sort an energy performance certificate for your property (this is a legal requirement and must be provided within the first seven days of marketing your property).

      After we have created the marketing materials for your property we will ask you to check them over to ensure they are not mis-leading and more importantly, you are satisfied with them and they are totally reflective of your property. Once you are happy with them we will make your property live across our own website and all the property portals we use.

      All viewing arrangements are made to suit your individual circumstances, they are all confirmed at the time of making the appointment and also on the day of the appointment, by email and telephone. We will happily accompany any viewings, but as no-one knows your property better than yourself, perhaps you may be the best person to do this. We will arrange all viewings to suit you. It is part and parcel of our service to obtain feedback after every viewing, which we will always relay back to you, so that you are aware of you viewers thoughts.

      Any offers that are received to purchase your property will be put to you within 24 hours of receipt, we will always qualify the potential buyer to the best of our ability and will only consider moving forward with the applicant if they are in a 'position to proceed' to an unconditional exchange of contracts.

      Once we are happy with an applicants ability to proceed, we will request details of both solicitors, so that we can forward a memorandum of sale to all parties, this is a document confirming what has been agreed i.e. price and any special conditions, together with details of vendors, purchasers and both solicitors, on receipt of this documentation, the solicitors can start the conveyancing process.

      People constantly ask how long will the conveyancing take, the answer unfortunately is a little like 'How long is a piece of string?' As the norm we would normally suggest about 13 weeks, but from hereon its all very much down to your solicitors, but to ensure you know exactly what is happening throughout the whole transaction, we will ring all parties involved on a weekly basis and will always ensure that both you and your purchaser are always fully aware of exactly what the situation is.

      As we near the end of the conveyancing process we will arrive at a date to 'exchange contracts', at this stage both solicitors will agree and 'set in stone' a completion date, this is a date agreeable by all parties where the property legally changes hands, the owner moves out and the purchaser moves in. There is no specific time for this to happen, it is usually down to circumstances, but generally before 3pm. The vendors solicitor will usually inform ourselves that completion has taken place and then we will inform all parties accordingly.

      On completion the vendors solicitor will pay our agreed commission.

      Kristian Hamer - Managing Director
       I'm Kristian the founder of Kristian Allan Sales, Lettings & Property Management......I have been involved in property for over 15 years now and can honestly say that property is my passion, becoming a Buy to Let landlord at the age of 23, I slowly built up a small portfolio of modest 2 bedroom terraced properties within the Bury area. 

      As my portfolio grew, I soon realised that the Letting Agents that I was using to manage my properties weren't very good and I felt many elements of management were missed or never carried out......this prompted me to manage my own properties as I felt as a landlord I knew what was needed and expected. 

      This is how the 'Kristian Allan' brand was born. 

      When reaching over 200 properties for other landlords we felt the next natural progression was to look at selling properties as well as managing them....and now here we are !! 

      Although I do eat, drink, sleep all aspects of property I also love sports (although as I get older its more watching than participating) I'm a keen golfer, albeit no Tiger Woods, and try and play once a week if the sun is shining. 

      Along with my 16 year old son Ollie and his Grandad, we are all petrol heads and love fast cars, and motocross, we visit Oulton Park as much as possible over the racing calendar, Goodwood Festival of Speed and we even have tickets for the British Grand Prix this year which I am super excited about. 

      I also have a beautiful daughter Ella (who is 11 going on 18 !!!) Ella loves singing ....in fact she never stops from the minute she wakes up until her head hits the pillow. Spending quality time with my friends and family is extremely important to me and being lucky enough to have their support keeps me focused and gives me a clear vision within our business.

      Sophie Marshall - Sales Negotiator
       I'm Sophie, I am the youngest member of the team, but it is general knowledge amongst my colleagues that I do everything and keep the business going, in fact at times, I really do wonder why it's not my name above the door.

      I have been working at Kristian Allan for just over 2 years and can honestly say I really enjoy what I do. Over this 2 years, as well as in house training, I have also completed my NVQ level 2 and 3 Diplomas in the Sale of Residential Properties and I am currently waiting to become a member of the National Association of Estate Agents. I really enjoy every aspect of my job, especially meeting new people, building relationships with vendors and purchasers and having a sense of achievement helping the sale progress through to completion. I like to make the most of my spare time by socialising with my family and friends, going away on holidays and going for meals and cocktails on the weekends.

      Lisa Pickford - Lettings Manager
      Hi, my name is Lisa - I have worked alongside my brother Kristian as the letting manager for over 5 years. I am predominantly from a customer service background but have many years' experience in both buying and selling properties. I have first hand experience of how stressful and emotional moving home can be and have genuine empathy with all our clients. Away from the office, property is always on my mind and It was always a dream of mine to renovate a property of my own. An often used phrase in estate agency is to buy the worst house on the best street and not the best house on the worst street, a few months ago I got the keys to the most unloved house on the street ¿¿. The novelty of living in a building site is starting to wear a little thin, but it is so exciting seeing my ideas taking shape and I'm looking forward to eventually walking on carpet and not bits of brick, timber, screws and nails.

      Laura Boulton - Assistant Lettings Manager
      My name's Laura and I'm the newbie at Kristian Allan, although I have been working in the lettings industry for over 6 years. 

      In the past I have specialised in HMO let's and property management including corporate business contracts and student tenancies. I have also completed my Level 3 Diploma in Residential Property Lettings and Management and now applying to become a member of ARLA. 

      I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of the letting's profession from meeting new clients, nurturing the ongoing relationship to ensuring every property in our portfolio is managed to the highest standard. 

      I have 3 young daughters who certainly keep me on my toes and whilst I am not tied up running around after them, I enjoy socialising with friends and family and keeping fit at the gym.

      Nina Forrest - Senior Sales Negotiator
      I have just over 20 years experience in estate agency covering all aspects of the sales process from carrying out initial market appraisals to progressing the transaction through to exchange of contracts and completion. I have been working in the Kristian Allan sales team for over three years now and it's the best career move I've ever made. 

       I have always had a keen interest in property and along with my husband, we have bought, sold, developed and rented out numerous properties over the years. I have recently completed my Level 3 Diploma in the sale of Residential Properties and have applied for membership of the National Association of Estate Agents I am the proud mum of three grown up children, so when I'm not focused on property I'm always tied up with the family. 

      My husband and my youngest son, are both fell and mountain runners and rather than join them on the fells and mountains, I chose to become an England Athletics qualified Fell and Mountain Running Coach. I enjoy the outdoors, travel, dining out and reading in my spare time.

      Louise Gibson - Lettings Negotiator
       I have been working in the lettings industry for almost 6 years now. I first started out working for a large corporate company where I gained a lot of experience, training and knowledge dealing with all aspects of the lettings and management industry, focusing on administration, inspections and inventories. 

       I started with Kristian Allan in 2017 and I can honestly say it was the best move I have made. I feel we have a great team here and I am confident we really provide landlords and tenants with the best service they deserve. 

      Since being with Kristian Allan, I have seen the company grow from strength to strength and it's brilliant to be a part of. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and friends and looking after my mini me, Olivia! Over the next year we will be purchasing our forever family home and hoping to build a small portfolio of buy to lets.

      Paul Ashworth - Senior Valuer
      I have been involved in the sale of residential properties for in excess of 25 years and over that time I must have carried out market appraisals on more than a thousand properties. I have enjoyed every aspect of my career to date. 

      The process of selling property is exactly the same for every property but behind every 'front door' is a different client, the part of my job which I really enjoy is building that relationship with the client so they have the confidence in me to be able to instruct me to handle the sale of their most valuable asset. 

       I think most people working in Estate Agency have 'property' in their blood, it is certainly the case with me, when I'm not working I really enjoy watching programmes about property and architectural salvage ( Some people say I need to get a life ). More recently I have been actively involved in Government Apprenticeship schemes, regarding the promotion and delivery of property sales and lettings, apprenticeship awards to Estate Agency staff throughout the North West, ensuring they are aware of legislation, codes of practice and statutory guidelines, basically ensuring they are carrying out the role of the estate agent correctly. In my spare time I like to spend quality time with family and friends.

      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        Carran Parkhouse 

         I have been very impressed with the service and the knowledge of the team at Kristian Allen. I have been a landlord for many years and I am always impressed when someone can teach me something, which is exactly what Kristian was able to do. 

        Lisa managed the letting and I was able to move a tenant in and out without a gap in rental income. The rent was slightly increased, and the welcome pack for the new tenant a lovely touch. I had a few idiosyncrasies, and this was no problem for the team who met every request I made. 

        Sometimes you have a good "business owner" and they come out sell the service to you and you never see them again, this is a team that is exceptional across the board, I will be in touch as soon as my next tenant gives notice. 

        Thank you all so much.
      • Seller Testimonial

        Angela Congdon 

        Would highly recommend the property management service. Very friendly staff and kept informed at each stage, excellent all round from initial discussions right through to tenants moving in.

      • Seller Testimonial

        Kath 

         We moved house two weeks ago after selling through and buying from Kristian Allan. Kristian sold our house quickly after only a few weeks and he and his team kept us sane through a difficult solicitor process. 

        They are attentive and helpful on every level so many thanks to Kristian, Paul, Lisa, Nina and Sophie - I would definitely recommend them to anybody wishing to sell their house - It won't be me though as I will not be moving ever again!!
      • Seller Testimonial

        Thomas Wallis 

         Rented houses for over 12 years. Been with Kristian for nearly four years and moved house in that time to another Kristian Allan house. Best agents you could wish for. Always been looked after. Can't say there's ever been a problem even with repairs. Damage due to weather etc. I would never wish to look for renting elsewhere! Kristian himself is great and so are Lisa all his staff.
      • Seller Testimonial

        Amy Calvert & Tom Hopkinson 

         To Kristian and the team, thanks so much for all your help, for making the house buying process as smooth as possible and for being the only estate agents who haven't given us anger issue, made us cry or made us feel like giving up! It's been a pleasure.
      • Seller Testimonial

        Jonathan Stirzaker-Philips 

         I used Kristian Allen for both the letting and sale of my property in North Manchester. I received an impeccable level of customer service from start to finish and Kristian's honest and no nonsense approach really is a breath of fresh air. A company I would highly recommend..! Thanks Kristian..
      • Seller Testimonial

        Stephen Higham 

        Was recommended to instruct Kristian Allan to sell my house for me, even though my house is in Salford. Well I wasn't disappointed, Paul from their sales team came out the next day after I made my first enquires, gave me lots of advice, took the photos and other details of my property and the following day it was up for sale on all the major sites. 

        The for sale sign went up on that day too. Just over a week later and having had 10 viewings in a week, my house has been sold for the price I wanted. Many thanks to the sales team that have been involved in the sale, Paul, Sophie and Lisa. Very professional staff and service, what more could I ask for securing me a sale in just over one week. I would highly recommend.
