5 Tips to Find Reputable Manchester Letting Agents

5 Tips to Find Reputable Manchester Letting Agents

Investing in Manchester's property market can be a lucrative venture, but it requires extensive research and planning - and one of the most important aspects of property investment is finding reputable Manchester letting agents.

Not only will they help manage your rental properties but find quality tenants and a property where tenants want to live.

If you're new to property investment, the friendly team at Bergins offers five tips to find reputable letting agents in Manchester - and advice on what a property investor should look for and do.

1. Reputation

The first thing you should look for in a Manchester letting agent is their reputation. A reputable letting agent should have a proven track record of successfully managing rental properties and a strong online presence with positive reviews from previous clients. That means checking out the company's website, social media profiles, and online reviews. You can also ask for references and contact previous clients to get an idea of their experience working with the letting agent.

2. Experience and knowledge

Experience and knowledge are crucial when it comes to managing rental properties. A good letting agent should have a solid understanding of local laws - such as selective licensing schemes in Manchester - and regulations covering the sector. Find out how long the letting agent has been in business and their level of expertise. You can also ask about their property management processes and the systems they have in place to ensure the efficient management of your rental properties.

3. Communication and availability

Clear communication and availability are essential for a letting agent to effectively manage your properties. The agent should be responsive and proactive in communicating with you, providing regular updates on the status of your properties and any issues that arise. They should also promptly deal with any tenant issues too. To gauge their communication skills, schedule an initial meeting with them and ask about their communication processes. You should also find out if they have a dedicated team to handle maintenance and emergency repairs.

4. Fees and charges

When it comes to managing rental properties in Manchester, the fees and charges will vary from one letting agent to another. As a property investor, you want to find an agent that offers competitive fees without compromising on the quality of the services provided. Find out the letting agent's fee structure and any additional charges such as maintenance or late payment fees. Make sure you understand the terms and conditions of the agreement, including any penalty fees for terminating the contract early.

5. Professional accreditation

Professional accreditation is a clear indication of a letting agent's commitment to their profession and that they will adhere to the best practices and ethics. The main associations and accreditation schemes are Propertymark and safe agent.

Dear Tony Mike and Anna Thanks so much for all your hardwork getting my house sold ! Your efficiency is second to none and it was great to be able to sell my house without the usual "estate agents" headaches!

I am so glad I chose Bergins to sell my property and I am extremely impressed with the service that they provided.. They were informative, punctual,professional and really friendly.They were happy to deal with all of the viewings and when the sale was agreed acted in a swift and efficient manner.

Dear Tony and Mike I just had to write to say thank you once again for everything you have done for us. The thought of having to sell my late fathers house was filling me with absolute dread, having never bought or sold a property before I didn't know where to start. From the moment I met you though I felt completely at ease, you took all the stress and worry away and within 24 hours the house had been sold and you had arranged a lovely solicitor to take care of the legal side. I'm still amazed at how smoothly everything was, especially as I have 3 siblings who were also involved in the process. I keep seeing houses that have been on the market for a while and I want to knock and say, "get in touch with Tony and Mike at Bergins, they'll soon have your house sold". Thank you again guys for everything, you run a top class business

Dear Tony and Mike Guys I just wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you for all you have done to help me with the sale of my home.After trying to sell my house for a year with other agents and getting nowhere, you sold it after only three days at the asking price.You called me when you said you would.You answered all my questions and went beyond what I would of expected. A brilliant brilliant service I can't thank you enough. I wish you both the very best for the future
