Our new tenants in Minsterley, Shrewsbury checked in yesterday after snapping up this house before it went to market.
We were approached by a landlord for advice in relation to their options for a property they had inherited. It had sat empty for some time and was relatively dated in terms of kitchen, bathroom and décor. We inspected the property and gave advice in relation to what rent the property could achieve in its current condition, what rent it might achieve if redecorated, and what rent it might achieve with a new kitchen, new bathrooms, redecorated and re-carpeted throughout.
The client took some time to consider the options, and in the meantime we were approached by a couple moving to the area, looking for a property in close proximity to their new work. Their requirements matched the property completely, and we contacted the landlord to see if they would be interested in allowing us to show the tenant around the property, which we then did.
The tenants were happy with the kitchen, bathroom and décor, and just had a few requests. After discussing the options with the landlord, we proceeded to carry out minor works to the property, including having the oven and some flooring replaced, as well as a deep clean, the electrics and gas tested, and agreed terms with the couple who had originally approached us. The couple moved in yesterday and we have a happy landlord and happy tenants!
There is not a ‘one size fits all’ solution to lettings and we approach different properties and different landlords with a personal service, establishing the objectives of the landlord before providing recommendations and creating opportunities.
