Whether you are an experienced landlord with a portfolio of properties, or you are thinking about starting with your first rental, Heywoods is here to help and add value. Our expertise gives you the comfort and reassurance of knowing that we will protect your assets, protect your income, and protect you.

We help take the hassle out of being a landlord so you can get on with the rest of your life without worrying about your properties. From getting set up as a landlord to the end of a tenancy and everything in-between, we’ve got it covered. And you can sleep easy knowing that we’ve even got an out of hours team who take care of emergencies and urgent maintenance issues for you – so if your tenant needs help in the middle of the night we’ll be there for them.

We’ll give you the benefit of our experience to decide how much rent to charge, taking account of the local market, the value of your property and what it offers tenants. Based on these factors and more we will help you decide where to pitch the rent.

We’ll support you with rent appraisals and renewals as they come round, letting you know what we think about any changes to the rental market overall as well as the local situation.

We’ll take you through the things you need to do to ensure you are properly set up as a landlord – such as changing your mortgage and insurance to make sure your property is set up for non-owner occupation, choosing if you want to let the property furnished or unfurnished, or whether to allow pets. We’ll also host viewings for your property if you want us to.

We’re here to protect your income – we’ll vet your potential tenants to make sure they can afford the rent and we’ll collect and hold the deposit and rental payments on your behalf. If there is ever any chasing which needs to be done we’ll do it so you don’t have to worry.

We’re here to protect your asset – we’ll keep on top of maintenance and upkeep, with regular visits and reviews of the property to make sure that your properties are always cared for. We’ll also prepare a thorough inventory as evidence of the property’s condition at the start of the tenancy.

We’re here to protect you – by advising on the range of compliance issues which you are legally required to keep on top of. Everything from CO monitors to gas safety checks, energy performance requirements to providing a copy of the government’s “How To Rent” guide for your tenants at the start of their tenancy. And if things do get challenging, we are on hand to manage and resolve disputes for you.

We take the time to get to know our landlords really well, with regular reviews of your portfolio and your goals. When it comes to scaling up or scaling down, we can help too. With our local knowledge and area-wide reach we are great at spotting opportunities and sharing them with you. We’ll know if one of our landlords is looking to grow while another is thinking about selling some of their properties; we’ll tell you if something is about to come up for auction which might fit your portfolio; and we’ll connect you with experts when it comes to financing your investments.

We will always spend time keeping up to date with your plans, as the more we know about your investment goals the better we can help.
