First Time Investor
About The Client
Our clients, who were first-time investors, recently purchased a property in Westminster. However, they were met with a few challenges before the property was ready to be presented to potential tenants.
The clients needed a reliable and experienced property management service provider to help them to overcome the challenges associated with leasing their property in Westminster. They also wanted to expedite the leasing process and find qualified tenants as soon as possible.
- The property in Westminster, our clients were in the process of purchasing it and it had not yet settled, but they were eager to lease it quickly.
- To prepare the property for leasing, a full garden tidy-up was necessary, which had to be arranged ahead of time so that the work could be completed as soon as settlement occurred.
- To protect the owners' legal interests, ensuring that all necessary paperwork was completed accurately and on time was essential. This included arranging for a Property Condition Report to be done prior to the tenancy beginning, to thoroughly document the handover to the tenant.
- The Lease Agreement and payment of ingoing funds for post-settlement needed to be facilitated as soon as possible for the security of the tenancy. It ensured the property could get new tenants into the property fast.
After reviewing the client's needs, our team proposed a comprehensive plan to expedite the leasing process and ensure a successful outcome, such as negotiating access for home opens prior to settlement and completing a full garden makeover.
We began our campaign three (3) weeks before the property was due to settle and proactively kept the owners informed with regular updates. By remaining in close communication with the sales agent, we were able to keep abreast of settlement, maintenance quotes and home open arrangements.
To make the property more attractive to potential tenants, we arranged for a full garden tidy-up to be completed. We also completed a Property Condition Report in advance to reflect the condition at handover.
Our plan consisted of four different stages:
Step 1: We provided recommendations to our clients to attract quality tenants, including a garden makeover to ensure that the property was presented in the best possible condition
Step 2: We negotiated with the sales agent to gain access to the property before settlement, so that we could conduct home opens, obtain quotes and attract potential tenants early.
Step 3: We launched a comprehensive marketing campaign before settlement to generate interest and minimise the vacancy period.
Step 4: We promptly organised the completion of the Property Condition Report, so that the tenant could move in as soon as the property settled. By implementing these measures, we were able to successfully lease the property quickly and efficiently, meeting the client's needs and ensuring their satisfaction.
