Michael Graham Lettings
Moving heaven and earth for a happy tenancy…
Letting your home can be a daunting prospect. The financial and legal obligations landlords face are constantly changing and complex, and preparing the property for a tenancy, including arranging inventory checks and utility transfers, is time-consuming. At Michael Graham Lettings we are dedicated to removing the stress associated with being a landlord. Equally, if you’re looking to rent, we will strive to find your perfect home, whether that’s a period property, an idyllic country cottage or a new build.
When you decide to let your property, our Lettings team will make every effort to find a perfect tenant match. Once we know the plan you have in mind, for instance, how long you want to let your home for and the items you plan to take and those you’re happy to leave behind, our experienced lettings agents can talk you through your local lettings market. They will discuss with you the achievable rent and advise on any changes which would make your property more marketable and so maximise the rental yield. At Michael Graham we guarantee the very best service and work hard to develop a long-term relationship with all our clients. For us, communication is at the heart of everything and we’ll keep you closely informed of any developments or interest shown in your property.
Michael Graham is a member of the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA), the gold standard for professionalism in the industry. To ensure the safety of your property, we use a referencing company to carry out a full credit check on prospective tenants. We are expert in all the health and safety legislation affecting landlords, and our specialist insurer can offer you appropriate rent recovery protection. Michael Graham Lettings organise all aspects of the tenancy agreement, including the inventory and utility transfers, and if we manage your tenancy, we will collect rent, keep you up-to-date with any problems and arrange any maintenance that needs to be done.
At Michael Graham we have a track record of long-term letting to trustworthy people who will care for your property. We are proud of the fact that eight out of ten tenants in managed Michael Graham properties renew their lease year on year. With 14 Michael Graham offices in 8 counties, if you are thinking of letting your property, or are looking for a property to rent, why not get in touch? We look forward to hearing from you.
Are you contemplating a move to a new area, possibly to the country? Perhaps a weekend trip rambling over the fields and visiting a cosy village pub has given you a positive impression of your lifestyle if you move to that area. At Michael Graham we believe in trusting first impressions, but we also know that nothing beats living somewhere for discovering what an area is really like. Research is useful, and a quick online search will reveal the length of your proposed commute, but only by making the journey for a few months can you appreciate what it feels like day in day out, and find out first-hand the answers to three crucial questions: How busy are the roads? How reliable are the trains? And can you always get a seat?
At Michael Graham Lettings we can help you find a property to rent in your chosen area. Renting in an area that’s new to you before investing your capital is a sensible option, with the added benefit that if you do choose to buy, you’ll be on the spot for viewings and your chain free status will be attractive to vendors.
Renting is often regarded as the expensive option, but renting costs are low compared to the cost of selling and buying a new house and moving in. Renting rather than buying also offers the benefits of flexibility and freedom. If you decide an area doesn’t suit your family after all, when the lease comes to an end you can move out and move on. So why not let us help you find your ideal rental property? Then if you do decide to put down roots, the Michael Graham Lettings team will be there to guide you through a seamless transition from renting to buying your dream home.
