Bromley Council’s Direct Let scheme is very popular with property owners in the area who are new to letting out their properties. The scheme is designed to provide more homes for those people who need them, cutting down on the number of vacant houses in the area and supporting the owners in returning them to use.
Working with the Council can offer a wide array of benefits to the property owners. Firstly they refer tenants to you for free, easing one of the biggest worries that landlords have. Alongside this they provide support with managing the tenancy, offer guidance and even help to train landlords. As a third benefit they can give you access to grants that can be used to make properties inhabitable and improve the standards.
A crucial part of being successful as a landlord is catering for the needs of tenants and providing a property that ticks the right boxes. It can be tricky to determine what these are, especially when you are new to the field. Choosing Direct Let can help with this. Each property put forward for the scheme is professionally inspected and the owner is provided a report. This includes tips about improvements and meeting the right standards so that tenants will be satisfied.
