If you currently own a property let by room in Bristol, you will know how difficult it can be to keep your rooms full.
If you use a High Street agent, they will probably be advertising in the wrong places and will not be geared up to replying to customers at evenings and weekends – which is what you need to do to get the best tenants.
We manage over 300 rooms across the city and our team are specialists in managing the difficulties and unique challenges of letting properties by room.
Since 2012, we have developed a reputation for excellence in room marketing, HMO lettings management and compliance. Here are a few reasons why you might want to give us a call.
We not only advertise on Rightmove & Zoopla like run-of-the-mill High Street agents but we’re also specialists on Spare Room. We’ve not only invested in systems to keep your rooms towards the top of the listings, our sales team reply on the Spare Room app at evenings and weekends to maximise viewings for your property.
Most of our business comes from word-of-mouth. We are frequently referred to the friends and family of our current clients and we pride ourselves on our reputation for delivering great service. Since 2012, co-founder Nick Josling has been the host of Bristol’s biggest property meeting, Bristol PIN. If you haven’t been before you can get a free ticket worth £20 by clicking here.
Our team has helped convert more than 50 properties to HMOs since 2012. We’ve made a few mistakes along the way but we’ve also learned what works and what doesn’t. We’re happy to offer some practical advice on how to add more value, attract better tenants and earn higher rents.
“Prevention is better than cure”. A blocked gutter, if not addressed, can cause hundreds or sometimes thousands of pounds worth of damage. Our inspections are carried out by our in-house team who are trained to spot issues early which we will action or give you options where appropriate; with the aim of reducing your costs over the long term.
Although our sales team works evenings and weekends, we won’t just put anyone in your property. There is always a clear brief on the age, occupation and gender of our ideal next house mate. We’ve found out through years of experience that doing this makes a happier house and everyone’s lives easier.
Letting Agent Today recently estimated there are 160 pieces of legislation impacting landlords. Most of them apply to HMOs. From HMO and selective licencing to Article 4 directions and planning issues, our senior team are experts in this field and can help ensure your properties and paperwork are fully compliant with the latest regulations.
There is nothing more annoying than being charged £50 to change a fuse. Our lettings team is trained to ask the right questions to minimise call outs and where possible, tasks are batched to minimise travel time and call out charges.
Bristol Property Partnership was founded by HMO landlords. Our small, specialist team know exactly what it takes to run a multi-let property – because we’ve been doing it for years managing both our own properties and those of our clients. Your properties are treated in exactly the same way as our own.
