Large Database of Quality Applicants
We always have a large data base of applicants for both sales and lettings, our sales applicants are qualified by our independent financial advisor, all potential tenants are asked a number of affordability questions at registration stage, in doing this we ensure we are only dealing with people that can proceed, saving both your time and ours.
When you instruct Harry Charles to market your property we will discuss your preferred viewing arrangements, some clients prefer to conduct the viewings themselves, we would however recommend that viewings are accompanied by one of our experienced negotiators, this enables us to get immediate feedback.
The presentation of your property is vital, we are trained to take professional photographs and write detailed property descriptions to show your home in its best light.
Floor plans are essential when marketing your property, buyers like to see the layout of their potential home, and this is why all of our sales instructions are accompanied with floor plans at no extra charge.
Harry Charles prides itself on providing an outstanding service to our landlords who use our fully managed service. The Property Management Team, are a team of dedicated staff, with years of experience in their field. Each landlord is allocated a property manager who will look after any maintenance issues that arise through the term of each Tenancy. In addition, they visit each property 2 or 3 times every year to ensure properties are being maintained to a satisfactory standard. They will manage the legal requirements too, such as gas safety certificates and will advise landlords of any legislation changes that come into effect. In addition, at the end of the tenancy, the team have been trained by the Tenancy Deposit Service to deal with the return of deposits.
We have a dedicated Accounts Team and therefore a point of contact for all our landlords, should they have any financial queries.
All our client account handling is managed by Viv, who has been with Harry Charles for over 10 years giving landlords continuity, expertise and peace of mind that their investment is in good reliable hands.
