Letting & Property Management

We have been renting homes to professionals in Brighton & Hove for over 25 years. Whether you’ve let property before or are a first time landlord, we understand the market and can address all of your concerns and needs.

Marketing your property

After an initial meeting and marketing appraisal we will begin the process of advertising your property to prospective tenants.

The right expectation

So that you can be provided with a realistic view of the potential rental value straight away, we aim to meet you at your property. We will provide you with comparisons to similar properties in the same area and examples of how we market and advertise.

We find that by getting to know you and, by determining what your expectations are, we can customize our marketing strategy and tenancy management to suit you.  We are transparent about our Terms of Business and provide a copy of that too, so that you have everything you need to make an informed decision.  Once we have received your instruction to move forward, we aim to start advertising your property within 24 hours of the photographs being taken.

Robust selection process

Every prospective tenant undergoes a pre-qualification check to ensure they will meet our strict referencing criteria and all property viewings are accompanied. We discuss all offers that we receive from prospective tenants and, once you have made your decision, we will ensure that the terms of the tenancy and any requests are acknowledged by all parties.

Final checks are completed, a date for your tenant to move in is agreed and legal documentation is prepared. You may wish to meet your new tenant prior to the move-in date and this can easily be arranged.

What We Do

Finding the right tenant

We take pride in being able to let your property quickly and to the right tenant for our landlords. One of the things that Parks do differently and with great success is our tenant selection process, because we do it all in house. We take the responsibility of finding the right tenant seriously and therefore prefer to handle all checks; referencing, credit checking and communication. You benefit from a faster and more accurate service with no 3rd parties to slow things down. You also have the opportunity to review references yourself and even meet your prospective tenants should you wish.

Managing your property

After we have found your tenant and they have completed our meticulous in-house referencing process, a move in day is organised and the tenancy begins.

The move-in day

This is a big day for your tenant and a member of Parks team will be there to greet them.  They take the time to guide them around the property, showing them how to use the boiler, if needed and where the utility meters are.  They will also obtain the tenant’s agreement of the inventory and schedule of condition. We provide a Welcome Pack that includes copies of the important documents, contact details and essential information about your property and the surrounding area. When this process is complete, the keys are released and the Tenancy Agreement is executed.

Safeguarding your property

After the move-in date, our highly skilled Property Management team will take over looking after you and your property. Your dedicated Property Manager will act on your behalf; dealing with questions as they arise from you or your tenant. They will contact you soon after your tenant has moved in to introduce themselves and confirm how you would like them to manage your tenancy for you.  You will get to know them, they will keep you informed about tenant communication and property management matters by either calling or writing to you, you just need to let them know your preferred method of communication. We like to be pro-active and will tailor the level of communication we have with you to suit.

Laws and Legislation

At Parks we understand that the process of letting can be difficult, so it helps to understand the process and what to expect from the moment you place your instruction with us. You should carefully review landlord legislation in order to comply with the reglations. We can guide you through everything you need to know to ensure all of your legal responsibilties are met.

Calculate your investment potential

As new landlords last year, my husband and I were recommended to Parks through the sole estate agent we use. We have had nothing but a positive experience in that time. Antony the Letting Director has always been on hand to investigate, inform and advise. He has happily come along to view properties we were interested in and pass opinion accordingly. None of our requests have been dismissed and nothing has been too much trouble. Communication is efficient and legal and procedural knowledge and policy has been tip-top. The lettings management team has always been quick to respond and as a result, our tenants seem happy too, which is also important.
