Act now to sell be­fore sum­mer

Harefield Gazette - - UXBRIDGE PROPERTY -

WITH es­tate agent reg­u­la­tion still firmly in the public eye, it's more im­por­tant than ever to use a reg­u­lated let­ting agent to let your prop­erty, ac­cord­ing to Chris Lakin, direc­tor of Lakin & Co Es­tate Agents.

“Last year a gov­ern­ment re­port high­lighted that the let­ting sec­tor suf­fers from some ‘cow­boy' agents who ‘rip off ' land­lords and ten­ants, but not all es­tate agents are the same – and at Lakin & Co we choose to be a li­censed mem­ber of the As­so­ci­a­tion of Res­i­den­tial Let­tings Agent (ARLA) and also mem­ber of The Prop­erty Om­buds­man (TPO) to demon­strate our com­mit­ment and pro­fes­sion­al­ism to both ten­ants and land­lords,” ex­plained Chris. NOW is the time to sell your home in Hayes if you want to move be­fore the sum­mer hol­i­days, says Jaswinder Sa­goo branch part­ner of Hayes haart.

Spring is one of the best times to put your home on the mar­ket so you can show it off to new buy­ers who can even ar­range to view it well into the evening as the day-light hours are longer.

Jaswinder said: “Spring re­ally puts peo­ple in a good mood and there are a num­ber of rea­sons for this: the weather is start­ing to turn warmer and your home is flooded with light

Us­ing a reg­u­lated let­ting agent in­stils con­fi­dence, pro­vides client money pro­tec­tion, a re­dress scheme and also helps at­tract the right cal­i­bre of ten­ants who equally wish to only deal with a rep­utable agent.

Over the years Lakin & Co has forged ex­cel­lent re­la­tion­ships with multi­na­tional com­pa­nies with head of­fices in the area, re­lo­ca­tion agents and ex­ist­ing pro­fes­sional ten­ants. All ten­ants are strin­gently and in­de­pen­dently ref­er­ence checked to en­sure the firm only deals with the right ten­ants for its clients' val­ued prop­erty as­sets.

All the staff have ex­ten­sive lo­cal knowl­edge gained from many years of living and work­ing within the lo­cal bor­ough and have built re­la­tion­ships with lo­cal con­trac­tors, in­ven­tory clerks show­ing it off to max­i­mum po­ten­tial.

“The gar­den is com­ing into its own now, too. Even if you have a flat, win­dow boxes fea­tur­ing colour­ful bed­ding plants will give your prop­erty that ex­tra spe­cial kerb ap­peal.

“It's al­ways good to make a first im­pres­sion the mo­ment a po­ten­tial buyer turns up on your doorstep and spring is just the time to do this.

“Homes sell quickly this time of year be­cause ev­ery­one wants to en­joy their sum­mer hol­i­days with­out the pres­sure of hunt­ing for the next step.

“If you put your home on the and other in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als.

“We firmly be­lieve that his­tor­i­cally es­tate agents' fees have been ex­ces­sively high. Lakin & Co is com­mit­ted to of­fer­ing a full pro­fes­sional ser­vice with a set trans­par­ent and com­pet­i­tive fee struc­ture, which en­ables land­lords and ven­dors to re­duce their costs when sell­ing or let­ting a prop­erty while at the same time still ben­e­fit­ing from an all-en­com­pass­ing es­tate agency ser­vice.

“We have prom­i­nent Uxbridge town cen­tre high street of­fices and an ex­ten­sive data­base of wait­ing ten­ants and buy­ers,” added Chris.
