Our dedicated letting agents and property managers are highly regarded for providing a professional service to clients, matching tenants to properties and establishing long-term relationships with clients.
A comprehensive service for Landlords
Symonds & Sampson have been letting property since 1858, building a reputation for providing a high standard of service to landlords and tenants of all types of property. We pride ourselves on establishing long-term relationships with clients and offer a range of letting and management services tailored to each client and their property. The service we provide starts with an in-depth property consultation to establish not only the rent you are likely to achieve, but also to understand the type of tenancy and the person who will be the best tenant for you.
Steps to successfully letting your home
In-depth property consultancy. Are you letting your own home? Are you buying a property to let? Do you want to let your property furnished or unfurnished? What about pets? These are just a handful of the points to discuss during our free, no obligation and comprehensive appraisal of your property. We will offer market advice, identify the term and type of letting best suited to the property, the levels of letting and management service we can offer, and – using direct comparables - provide an indication of market value.
Safety Regulations. A myriad of safety legislation governs the renting of property. We’ll run through all relevant and ensure the necessary checks and certifications are completed prior to the tenancy commencing.
Professional photography and floor plans. First impressions count, we will outline the range of marketing material we can use to provide potential tenants with as much information as possible before they view.
Bespoke brochures. We will show you examples of brochures we use, all prepared to a high standard to ensure that your property is presented at its best.
Our Technology. A linked database throughout all our offices ensures that your property reaches all tenants looking for a home like yours. Matching people to property is the key to successful letting.
Our Network. Our reach extends beyond our 16 regional offices to The London Office and their 225 independent estate agents throughout the country, ensuring that your property reaches the widest audience possible. We are actively in contact with larger employers within the area if we have a property which may be suitable for their employees.
Internet Advertising. Your property will be listed on our website as well as the leading portals, Rightmove, Zoopla and Primelocation.
Social Media. Our ever-growing presence on Facebook and Instagram generates a healthy flow of traffic to our website.
Accompanied viewings and feedback. Our agents are trained to ask the right questions to ensure thorough feedback before, during and after viewings to keep you up-to-date at all times
Negotiating Tenancies. Having an experienced agent to quantify interested parties and help evaluate the potential for a successful tenancy is crucial to ensure the negotiation and smooth running of your letting.
References and Financial checks. When a suitable tenant has been found and terms agreed upon in principle, we will undertake a thorough referencing procedure. On completion of this, we can present a well-researched proposal to a landlord before progressing with the preparation for a tenancy.
A bespoke tenancy agreement. A comprehensive agreement will be negotiated, setting the ‘rules’ of the tenancy for all to understand and adhere to.
Inventories are essential. An inventory recording of the condition of the property (inside and out) safeguards the interests of both landlord and tenant.
Managing the tenancy
Once a tenant has moved into a property, our dedicated property managers can provide a full and comprehensive management service throughout the tenancy, to include rent collection, property visits, manage repairs, safety checks, and oversee tenants vacating. Our Premium Management also includes rent protection insurance.
We offer a range of competitive letting and management services to landlords, contact your local office to arrange for your free, no obligation market appraisal.
Already have a tenant in situ? Not a problem, contact us and we’ll tailor a management service to your requirements.
