Could you be sitting on additional income?

If you’re in the fortunate position of either owning a property alongside your current home, or if you’re a landlord with one or more rental homes looking for a more progressive management agency, Jackson-Stops South East is in a prime position to help you realise an upturn in income, regular letting of your properties and stress-free management of your property investment.

You have probably noticed that tenant demand is rising much faster than available rental properties leading to higher rents, with the Office for National Statistics recording the average newly listed rental price at £969 a month – and considerably more in the South East. The problem is becoming so widespread in the private rented sector that the Association of Independent Inventory Clerks (AIIC) is asking the government to use its levelling up agenda to increase the provision of more new properties for rent across the entire UK.

A lack of available property in the sales market is also leading many sellers to rent for a period until they can find a suitable home to buy. While our own research shows that we are at the beginning of a Spring boom in new sales instructions we’re also seeing a boom in new applicants, which will mean a sustained interested in the rental market from buyers for the foreseeable future.

Now is a great time to realise your property assets and bring them to the market or transfer their management to Jackson-Stops.

"I cannot recommend the Jackson-Stops letting team in Sevenoaks highly enough. They are a delight to work with; always charming, helpful, efficient and professional. I'm proud to have them assisting the management of my property and can't think of a single fault or reason to change agents. I recommend them to every local landlord I meet." EC

Jackson-Stops offers an established, market leading lettings service to landlords and tenants with an emphasis on quality property, a thorough understanding of local markets and the provision of sound advice.

You may be one of the many landlords struggling to get to grips with new regulations and extra paperwork and are looking to hand the letting and management of your properties to a management agency. Or you may be about to dip your toe into the rental market. Either way, our knowledgeable, professional, and diligent teams can help.

"We rented through Jackson-Stops and have had the best experience ever. Never had a less than superior experience in all my dealings with Jackson-Stops. Highly recommend this awesome team." AN

Many potential tenants begin their search online so making sure the property is well photographed and decorated and, where appropriate, furnished is critical. Some of our clients use local design and furniture hire companies that can provide comprehensive advice and bespoke packages at short notice, and we offer a complementary service to landlords advising on refurbishment or redecoration.

Our property marketing includes targeted digital and print communications to showcase your property, professional photography, a healthy national and regional social media presence and local, regional and national advertising. Your rental property will be seen by a wide audience.

"We had an outstanding service from Ella and her team and they all worked very hard to make sure things would go as smoothly as possible for us, the new tenants." MS

With offices across the South East we have local teams on hand to deal with issues as they arise, leaving you to get on with other things safe in the knowledge that your tenants and property are well looked after.

The rental market is an important part of the UK property market, but it is not without its pitfalls and ignorance is certainly not bliss, and you will always be able to call upon us for expert advice and guidance.
