John Lake Gilt Edged Lettings - 03/12/2013

John Lake has been successfully offering a gilt edged letting and management service for the past two years following the decision to re-enter the world of lettings after relinquishing this part of the firm in 1989.

This decision was inspired by the need for a high calibre letting agent in the Bay to manage and look after landlord’s investments as if they were our own.  Manager, James Bovey (MARLA MNAEA) commented, it is possible to acquire a management service for minimum fees but in reality can this level of commitment offer the expertise required to protect your investment?  Any agent can find a tenant, but a true professional shows their value when issues and problems arise which need to be resolved.

John Lake Gilt Edged Lettings are licensed members of ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents) the professional regulatory body for lettings in the UK and The Property Ombudsman reflecting their commitment to providing the highest level of service to ensure that every landlord’s experience of letting their property is positive as well as profitable.

Helen Holgate (BA Hons) of the firm emphasises, whether it be your former home where circumstances prevail that you have to move away and wish to have an income whilst retaining your investment in the Bay; you have a buy-to-let ‘one off’ property or large portfolio of properties, we will treat you with the same respect and competence.  We provide a service to match all requirements, whether that is a Let Only Service, Full Management or our Premier Package.

Quality homes deserve quality marketing and all levels of our lettings service provide a property appraisal undertaken by a qualified professional;  informative property particulars complete with floor plans; extensive internet coverage to include both leading national portals Zoopla and Rightmove and our Inspiring new website JOHNLAKE.CO.UK ;   prominent newspaper advertisements in the Herald Express;  comprehensive tenant referencing and full photographic with descriptive inventory;  personal check-in at the tenancy start.  Social media has also been embraced at John Lake in the use of Facebook and Twitter so all landlords and tenants can be kept updated with the latest property news and listings as well as changes to property legislation.

In addition to the above our Full Management Service includes :  Meter Readings/Tenancy Changes For Utilities;  Regular Property Inspections;  Reports To Landlord;  Out Of Office Contact Number;  Maintenance/Repair Co-Ordination.     

Our Premier Package includes all of the above but also affords Rent Protection and Legal Expenses Cover for added peace of mind.

James and Helen would be delighted to hear from anyone considering letting a property, or struggling to find a tenant with your current agent whether it be a character cottage, terraced house or small flat through to a luxury residence or prestigious penthouse.  To arrange a free, no obligation market appraisal contact (01803) 328811 or Email:
