Landlords are far too busy
We have landlords from all walks of life, some are accidental landlords who have re-located out of London, some are portfolio landlords who are based outside of the country and others just do not have the time to efficiently manage their property, that’s where we step in. Our property management team can help save you time by managing your property assets so you can continue with whatever you need to do or love doing.
You need an agent with local knowledge
Local knowledge is vital in the property and rental market. When an agent knows who the most likely tenants are, what they want in a rental property, where they look for homes, and why the local area is a good fit for them, it becomes easier to connect with them.
At Regal Estates, we have been operating since 2003 and our Directors and team have a combined knowledge of the area of over 80 years. We are proud to say we know the local area and the history of the local area. This is a place we care about, and North West London is where our employees live, and why we want to see Willesden, Dollis Hill, Neasden and surrounding areas thrive.
If you are looking for an agent, who knows why this area is so great to live in and how it should be presented to prospective tenants, look no further. This local knowledge has always worked in our favour in sourcing the most suitable tenants for you.
Knowledge & Legislation
Landlords in England must comply with more than 160 pieces of legislation (and growing). As well as National guidelines for landlords there are also local regulations that may be enforced by your local Borough to do with licencing. We understand this legislation.
It is a full-time job tracking changes, updates and new regulations. You are better off leaving this to a professional, and we will stay up to date with legislation, so you don’t have to.
As the government looks to crack down on rogue landlords we are here to ensure that you comply with the law and legislation for landlords.
Creating a business relationship with their tenant
Many landlords through experience have learned to keep relationships strictly professional with tenants, of course it is wonderful to get on with your tenants and we strongly encourage it. However, we have found that when we act as a managing agent on behalf of the landlord it sets a formal tone to dealings and therefore each party, whether it’s the landlord or tenant, are kept compliant, ensuring a smooth business relationship moving forward.
Many landlords, especially portfolio landlords, do not have the time to check bank accounts and keep up to date with their many property investments, let alone send a receipt statement to tenants each month. With our property management package, we take care of the tenant statements and provide you with a landlord statement each month which comes in handy when managing your finances and certainly helps at the end of the year when it comes to your tax return. You will even have access to statements 24/7 all in one place via our Propertyfile app.
You want to stay in touch with all matters
We help hands-on and hands-off landlords, but we know all landlords want to stay in touch with all aspects of their rental property.
Through the use of My Property File, you have access to us, our services and your information at your fingertips. So do your tenants.
Technology has transformed communication, and the My Property File allows:
- Landlords and tenants to report issues
- Landlords and tenants to access rental statements
- The ability to track payments, invoices and statements
- Being able to follow the progress of maintenance work
- Landlords can review key tenancy related information
Property inspections are an important part of property management. Our dedicated Property Manager will inspect and appraise your property mid tenancy to ensure it is being well maintained and flag up any issues that may need addressing in a detailed report complete with 360 degree photographs.
You need an Agent who does all the work for you
Not only do Regal Estates provide services that take care of all the work you need, but we also take care of all the work. We have an in-house property management team, which means the work we do is carried out by this company’s employees, this includes property inspections which play an increasingly important role for landlords.
We know some agents outsource services or provide bolt-on services that utilise the work of other companies. We don’t believe this provides landlords or tenants with the best support.
Access to reputable and efficient tradespeople
We have access to reliable, efficient and professional tradespeople, including tradespeople we have successfully dealt with time and time again who have the correct trade insurance policies in case things go wrong. The value of having access to our network of tradespeople itself is often a reason landlords choose our management package. We also have an in house team of tradespeople through our partner company Regal Property Services. Our team will oversee work of tradesman where required.
You need a letting agent who is not like others
If you cannot tell the difference between letting agents, you won’t tell the difference between the service you receive.
At Regal Estates, we offer a complete package from lettings to rent collection to professional property management.
We take a multi-faceted approach to property because we know that homes and houses are not one-dimensional, and neither are we. Our approach to managing rental property ensures you, as a landlord, get the most from us and your property investment
