Exciting Times as George F White Launches GFWLetting in Tyneside
George F White has opened the doors on a new enterprise in Newcastle – GFWLetting. Focusing on the lettings and property management market in Tyne and Wear & County Durham GFWLetting will bring to Tyneside a truly different approach to property lettings.
With a sharp focus on service delivery and transparency of fees GFWLetting are looking forward to breaking into the market in what is an all new move for the firm in terms of location.
Hugh Fell, Managing Partner, says “We already have a fantastic reputation for service delivery and adding value in the rural market, we aim to bring those skills to the urban sector so that landlords and tenants alike know that a simple transparent fee structure mean there are no hidden charges and they can sleep easily at night knowing the their investment is well cared for and that houses under our management meet all safety requirements”.
Basing our charges on a flat fee structure means we only charge for the work we actually do with no hidden costs for landlord and tenant alike. Landlords will pay a flat fee for tenant find and full management to let their house with GFWLetting. This includes the marketing of the property including property portals such as Rightmove, To Let boards, tenant referencing and drawing up tenancy agreements. It is essential for landlords to have faith in their agent and so as part of this our referencing of applicants is both comprehensive and independent.
Unlike many agents we seek to maximise return on a landlord’s investment and so would encourage longer term tenancy agreements thus reducing both void periods and repeated agent fees. For fully managed properties our monthly management fee represents value for money, and does not penalise the higher rental value by charging a percentage of the monthly rent. We ensure that your property is cared for throughout the term of a tenancy with regular inspections and any repairs being dealt with in cost effective and timely manner by insured and competent tradesmen. At the end of the tenancy the condition of the property is inspected and gfwLettings will deal with any issues surrounding the return or retention of the bond.
We will be available at times to suit landlords – not just 9-5 Monday to Friday, representing you and ensuring your investment is both protected and cared for.
Tenants too can look forward to a new type of service, where they are treated with respect and aren’t landed with hidden fees before, during or after a tenancy. With no holding fees, no unecessary administration fees all tenants have to pay for is their referencing fee of £100 for a single person or £150 for two. This in effect secures a property provided satisfactory references are returned. We will not charge you to draw up or renew an agreement.
Tenants not only have the security of knowing that and GFWLetting managed property will meet all necessary safety checks and standards but that and repairs will be dealt with in a timely and proper manner so they can sleep easy at nights knowing that gfwLettings has consideration for land lords and tenants alike.
Your bond will be registered with the appropriate agency and both landlords and tenants provided with a certification so you know that it is safe and secure for the duration of the tenancy.
Finally in an unregulated market gfwLettings brings with it the knowledge and experience developed over thirty years in the property business with standards guaranteed by reputation and the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
