In 2018, Paul & Ozzie were embarking on the purchase of a new build buy-to-let apartment at 28 Baldwin Street in the centre of Bristol.
Prior to completion on the property they approached The Bristol Residential Letting Co to seek professional advice on the potential achievable rent of the apartment and how best to prepare it for the rental market.
Having already visited the development whilst it was being built Don McKeever ( Lettings Director ) was able to instantly provide an accurate achievable rent for the apartment. Perhaps more importantly however, considering there were a number of apartments in the development coming onto the rental market, Don was able to give specific guidance in terms of the furnishing required in order to attract a good quality professional tenant.
Having taken Don’s advice Paul and Ozzie proceeded to furnish the apartment and instruct The Bristol Residential Letting Co to rent and manage the property. On the day of the instruction the Southville team contacted their applicant database and proceeded to complete viewings and agree a let on the very same day. In this instance the property never actually made it onto the rental market – not uncommon but certainly helped by the landlord having a good eye for furniture.
New build apartments are often purchased to avoid large scale maintenance issues however Paul and Ozzie were fully aware of the smaller snagging issues that can often occur in new apartments. Having instructed us to manage the property they were able to rely on their property manager to liaise with the developer and tenant to ensure any defects were resolved. As it happened in the case of this development there were some more substantial teething issues with the building as a whole and we attended site meetings on behalf of the landlords to ensure they were dealt with properly. Paul & Ozzie were grateful to have an expert on the ground looking after their investment and giving them peace of mind.
We've used The Bristol Residential Letting Co since 2018 and are delighted with their service.
Any problems have always been dealt with promptly and professionally.
