Switching Is Easy!

• Unhappy with your current management agent?

• Feeling exposed by the actions/inaction of an unlicensed agent?

• Does your agent understand your requirements and do they have YOUR interests at heart?

If the answer to any of the above is YES you are in the right place!

The good news is – YOU ARE NOT STUCK.

You can use our ‘SWITCH’ service to transfer your property or portfolio of properties to Bridges Lettings.

This is a service that numerous landlords have used to great effect over the past year and all of the people have one thing in common – they can sleep easy knowing that they have the best licensed property management team in the area looking after their investment.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Day 1

Once you have instructed us we will contact your previous agent and start collecting all of the information we will need.

Day 2

Due diligence – We will spend some time reviewing the information we have paying particular attention to existing problems and any potential areas of exposure.

Day 3

We will make contact with your tenants and explain the situation. We will arrange an appointment to meet them at the property in order to carry out a visual inspection and provide them with a notice containing all of the contact information that they may require in the future.

Day 4-5

This is when we would expect to visit your property and meet with the tenants. We will address any issues that come up at this stage.

Day 6

We will prepare all of the necessary paperwork and deal with the tenants deposit. The tenants will now be asked to sign all of the relevant documentation and we will sign on your behalf.

DAY 7

We will prepare all of the necessary paperwork and deal with the tenants deposit. The tenants will now be asked to sign all of the relevant documentation and we will sign on your behalf.

This is what some of the people that have used our ‘SWITCH’ service have said:

‘Because we are living overseas we have entrusted our properties completely to Bridges, who use good old fashioned common sense and logic, we are 100% happy. Thank You Bridges..’

‘We transferred our business from another agent to Bridges and have found them to be extremely efficient and helpful. Our properties had been neglected for some months,by our previous agent telling us that everything was OK when it wasn’t!

‘Bridges have been working tirelessly to get back on top of things reinstituting inspections, safety checks and countless other tasks not least The Rat Man! What more can a landlord ask for? Mandy, Kirsty and Andy in particular have dealt with some difficult issues and have always kept us in the loop and informed us on events’.

“When instructing Bridges Lettings to manage your properties, you can be completely safe in the knowledge that you will be dealing with a team of specialists, all of which are highly trained in their own specific disciplines. These roles vary from our front-end team who are responsible for letting the property, through to our move co-ordinators who handle the process from references to check-in and onto our property management team. This is where we have individuals handling our clients’ money, property managers dealing with maintenance and safety issues and specialists handling rent reviews, serving notices and taking of deposits.

I am incredibly passionate about what we do at Bridges Lettings in ensuring that we continue to deliver an unrivalled level of customer service to new and existing landlords and I would be extremely keen to demonstrate our full potential to you through our Fully Managed Letting Service.”

Just a brief note to thank all at Bridges, for not only coming up with a tenant for us so swiftly but also for following through to the point of completion. All those we spoke to and met were helpful and when there was a small glitch, the attitude to rectify it was both positive and professional.

As a landlord, I have received an exceptional level of service from Bridges. From project managing the total refurbishment of my property to finding and installing tenants, I have found the team to be professional, friendly and well informed. They have liaised with the Contractor ensuring works are carried out to a high standard, keeping me up to date at all times and fully discussing plans with me before implementing them. They are readily contactable and extremely helpful and I would thoroughly recommend Bridges lettings agency.
