We are Gary and Janet Boulter. We, like many other private landlords, have a small portfolio of properties and have been letting those properties for a little over 20 years.
In the early days, we used agencies to manage our lettings. Back then, agency prices were reasonable. However, over the years those prices have escalated. Additional fees were being charged to both tenants and landlords. We slowly began to move away from agencies, deciding to manage our lettings portfolio ourselves.
The process of letting for landlords who manage their own properties follows a familiar process. Excluding the legal requirements, we as landlords would; advertise our properties, arrange viewings, create contracts, take deposits and rental payments and manage the tenancy through to completion.
The challenge for most private landlords is the advertisement of their property lettings, introductions and communications with prospective tenants.
Here at simplylettingsonline.co.uk, we address those challenges. Private landlords are able to advertise their letting property on our website for free. Or for a small fee, we will also advertise their property on our affiliated portals i.e. Zoopla.
Prospective tenants, looking for their next home can, via our website, communicate securely with the landlord of the property they are interested in.
