Specialist letting agency and management service
The Property Management and Letting Company Brockenhurst
Specialist, experienced, knowledgeable and helpful – that’s Deborah Vaughan and her team at The Property Management and Letting Company based in Brockenhurst, who manage over 120 properties in the New Forest.
Your property rental in safe hands in Brockenhurst
Choosing the right letting agency to rent your property for you, is a challenge these days – there are so many agencies claiming to offer this service.
Why choose a specialist lettings agent?
The main reason is knowledge and understanding of the needs of both landlords and tenants.
The Property Management and Letting Company has many years of experience of all the perils and pitfalls for landlords and tenants and simply, knows the answers too. Owner manager Deborah Vaughan started the business in Brockenhurst in 2001 but had been in property rental management for a long time before that, and that’s the key.
Property rental specialists
The Property Management and Letting Company specialises in rental properties, as opposed to the many estate agents which offer lettings as an “add on” service. They focus on what they’re good at!
One of the big advantages of working with an owner managed business is the owner’s in charge, knows the business and its challenges, and knows exactly what staff to employ so the result is a tight knit, knowledgeable team and can advise on all the finer details of renting out your property including your obligations as landlord including your obligations as landlord. Deborah and her small team really know their business, and they know their properties inside out too.
Local knowledge is invaluable
Deborah and her team are from the New Forest, live in the New Forest, have brought up their families in the New Forest. Especially with new tenants moving in from another area this local knowledge is invaluable. Deborah and her team know the personalities of each village, they know the roads, the shops, the schools, the local services and how everything meshes together. Local knowledge helps with both valuation of property and matching tenants to properties.
Maximising your property investment - caring for your property
Deborah appreciates that renting out your house or apartment is a business, and that you require maximum return in regard to both ongoing income and preservation of your equity.
We’ve all heard dire stories of terrible tenants who leave a trail of disaster behind them, and void periods.
To avoid these pitfalls the two keys are: firstly properties must be in good order before they are let, which may necessitate a programme of refurbishment which can be project managed on your behalf by Deborah’s team.
Then, it’s a case of ensuring tenants treat your property with respect and maintain it well. This requires a thorough vetting process to check prospective tenants’ backgrounds and genuine references.
Then, following tightly managed processes and procedures, the team members (Heather or Josie) allocated to your property will conduct regular management visits to ensure that your tenants are looking after your property properly.
Because The Property Management and Letting Company is so well established it has a constant stream of enquiries from prospective tenants, which is why void periods are a rarity if you appoint Deborah and her team to manage your property.
Residential lettings - the core of the business
The core of Deborah’s business is and always has been residential (from 6 months) lettings. The Property Management and Letting Company has an endless stream of potential tenants looking for a property to rent so are always looking for new rental properties.
Holiday lettings property management
But for some properties, holiday rentals just make sense! A combination of location, charm, facilities and your preferences as the owner, may swing the balance in favour of maximising income in the holiday season and offering holiday lets rather than longer residential lets.
New Forest Holiday Lets is the holiday lettings arm of The Property Management and Letting Company, providing the same efficient, high quality and personal service offered by the residential lettings team and all under the same roof. Teresa and Linda will manage your holiday let for you, from a range of booking only through to full management including cleaning and maintenance.
