Tak­ing pro­fes­sion­al­ism se­ri­ously at Lakin & Co

Harefield Gazette - - UXBRIDGE PROPERTY -

APOP IN FOR A CHAT:

Lakin & Co is based at 122 High St, Uxbridge. CCORDING to re­cent data, since 2011 nearly 3,000 land­lords have faced prose­cu­tion under the Hous­ing Act 2004. In Lon­don alone, the data re­veals 2,006 in­di­vid­u­als and com­pa­nies in the UK were fined a total of £3,000,000 for hous­ing of­fences.

It’s im­por­tant to use a good let­ting agent who can guide you through the let­ting process to en­sure ev­ery­thing is carried out prop­erly.

This will in turn help you at­tract the right type of ten­ants to your prop­erty; most pro­fes­sional ten­ants will only look to use a rep­utable agent to find their home and many will only use an As­so­ci­a­tion of Res­i­den­tial Let­ting Agents (ARLA) licensed agent so they are well pro­tected.

With the in­crease in leg­is­la­tion such as the right to rent checks com­ing into force, it is be­com­ing even more dif­fi­cult to ne­go­ti­ate while mak­ing sure ev­ery­thing is done cor­rectly.Your agent should be there en­sur­ing you are not li­able as the land­lord for any­thing missed.

For ex­am­ple, some land­lords of­ten fall foul of Sec­tion 11 of the Land­lord and Ten­ant Act 1985. It is the most im­por­tant part of the land­lord’s obli­ga­tions to carry out ba­sic re­pairs to en­sure the prop­erty is in a good state of re­pair and safe.

The land­lord is re­spon­si­ble under the Land­lord and Ten­ant Act 1985 for re­pairs to the struc­ture and ex­te­rior of the dwelling, basins, sinks, baths and other san­i­tary, heat­ing and hot wa­ter in­stal­la­tions at the dwelling.

Again en­sur­ing the prop­erty is well man­aged and reg­u­larly in­spected will help land­lords en­sure that they achieve the best rents and se­cure the right ten­ants for their prop­erty.

Lakin & Co strives for the best for ev­ery­one they deal with and take great pride in hav­ing an ex­cel­lent cus­tomer ser­vice record, the on­line re­views they re­ceive are tes­ta­ment to this.

The process of let­ting or sell­ing your prop­erty can be of­ten fraught with frus­tra­tion and dis­ap­point­ment but the team at Lakin & Co re­main loyal and ded­i­cated in con­tin­u­ally push­ing to achieve the best favourable for their clients.
