This superb package includes the following services:
- Marketing your property online and in the agency
- Arranging and conducting viewings
- Collecting references, including credit and right-to-rent checks, and previous landlord references
- Organising and producing tenancy agreements
- Setting the move-in date
Full Management Package
Our Full Management Package is an exceptional service that takes care of everything, from ensuring you get the best rental prices for your property, to liaising with the local council and energy suppliers when a new tenant moves in.
Our letting agency fees are incredibly affordable, and our ‘under one roof’ service means you’re in the best of hands every step of the way.
This impressive package includes everything the Let Only service includes, plus the following:
- Collecting monthly rent on your behalf
- Arranging maintenance on the property when needed
- Completing regular house inspections
- Preparing necessary checkout documents
Why invest in property in St Helens?
Over the past 10 years, St Helens has become a key area of interest for landlords in the North West, mainly due to the mouth-watering yields available and the volume of renters in the region.
The majority of the homes surrounding the town centre are standard 1900s ‘two-up, two-down’ terraced properties, and are currently available for between £60-£80,000. Rents on these properties range from £450-550pcm, offering a highly impressive gross yield of around 8%.
An abundance of potential tenants to choose from
Another fantastic benefit of this region is that you’ll never be short of potential tenants – investment in the area over the past 15 years has created a boom in employment, and therefore a huge demand for rental properties.
In 2010, St Helens Hospital began the first stage of a £338 million refurbishment, which also included the redevelopment of Whiston Hospital. The two hospitals now currently employ over 6,000 people after huge sums of investment, some of whom are looking to rent rather than buy.
Amazon’s 34,000 sqft warehouse at Florida Farm has created 1,200 permanent jobs, whilst the Co-op Distribution Centre at Lea Green is one of the largest employers in the area, with 1300 warehouse staff.
Additionally, St Helens’ world-renowned glass industry currently employs just over 1000 people.
Another terrific advantage of having an extensive choice of tenants is that you don’t have to settle for renters you feel may not be suitable for your property – you can freely select the applicant who best meets your needs.
