We are an independent property agent, based in Southampton, with over 35 years’ experience of the property market. During this time we have seen many changes and improvements to the lettings market. Being a fully regulated agent for many years means we are always one step ahead in the ever-evolving industry of lettings.
It can be a tough job being a landlord and with increasing legislation comes increasing responsibility.
More and more landlords are now looking to regulated and qualified agents to take over the management of their properties in order to take the weight of responsibility off their own shoulders.
It can be difficult to decide which agent to choose as there are many available. We would always advise a new landlord to check the agent is regulated with a governing body such as ARLA Propertymark which will give you and your tenant better protection. Fees are an obvious consideration and these can vary greatly between agents but there is much more to consider when letting out your property. Will your money be protected? What would happen to the deposit and rent if the agent suddenly went out of business? So for greater peace of mind ensure your chosen agent is one that offers Client Money Protection.
All of the Harcourts team are fully qualified in their role or they are in the process of gaining the required qualification. Customer service and efficiency is high on our agenda and we do our utmost to ensure everyone receives the best possible experience whether they are a landlord, a tenant, or just someone with a general enquiry.
In addition to Lettings, we specialise in Block Management and offer services in property renovations and refurbishments. We also have our own in-house accounts department which means we can provide our landlords with a continuity of service which larger firms can’t always deliver.
If you would like to know more about what we can offer, we would love to hear from you.
