Now that we we are officially in Spring lambs are skipping around in fields, daffodils are in bloom and we are finally considering leaving the house without a coat.
It's the perfect time to have a spring clean, and to start afresh. As such, we've just given the inside of our office a lick of paint and will be shortly starting on the exterior to really brighten it up.
It's been a busy month so far, with more and more new files coming up to the department. Whilst on the subject of looking for improvement, Kelly, who deals with all of our referencing, has also started using MARAS to carry out comprehensive credit checks on our prospective tenants, to really give our landlords the peace of mind that we feel they deserve when letting their property. Not only does MARAS give a score rating for the applicant, but also shows whether there are any CCJs hiding in their financial history. At Winkworth Dulwich you can rest easy knowing that we will have carried out a broad and thorough referencing process. By keeping our referencing in-house, we have complete control over the process and will have had interaction with the applicant all the way through. This helps us to really get a good idea about the sort of person who will be living in your property.
On the maintenance side, Ayden has been guiding the landlords through dealing with some pretty major works recently. We’ve had three new boiler installations, with all solutions independently tailored to suit the type of the property, and the landlord’s long term plan for their investment. With management at Winkworth Dulwich, the addition of Ayden to our team towards the end of last year, has meant that we have a dedicated maintenance coordinator to ensure the very best management service.
With the weather warming up, the lettings market is showing some movement. We are busy dealing with move outs and move ins. We are grateful for the continued support of our landlords, who choose to keep returning to Winkworth Dulwich to re-let their property with us.
In the management department, we have Abigail who is on hand to advise and guide you through the whole end of tenancy procedure to make it as seamless as possible. There is often as much to consider at the end of a tenancy, as at the start so it is imperative to ensure that all legal guidelines and measures are being followed. At Winkworth Dulwich, as we are specialists in own fields, you can put the whole process in our hands, no matter how complicated the situation.
We’d better get back to work now – with our agents working hard to produce new lets, it’s definitely keeping us busy.
If you would like any help with letting your property or simply would like someone to take over the day to day management please give us a call.
