Landlords - Letting for Investment
Cooke & Co employ mature staff to deal with our landlords property and have been letting properties in the Thanet area since 1992.
We rent to both to working tenants and tenants requiring benefit assistance. We only rent self contained units and will not look at homes of multiple occupation.
Cooke & Co are pleased to offer a specialist advice service in relation to all aspects of buying to let as a long or short term investment. This includes information on buy to let mortgages through our financial advisers, advice on types of properties that are ideal for letting and of course the possible rental returns. We also can advise on Cliftonville West Selective licensing and are members of the Kent Landlord Accreditation Scheme.
- Thanet continues to be regarded as one of the top locations in the UK for property investment. Factors contributing to this are:
- The presence of the Universities and Academic Institutions including one of the country’s leading catering colleges
- Excellent accessibility by road, rail (by 2010, only 80 mins to London) and air using Kent International Airport.
- A large transient population.
- A shortage of housing in the area
- By combining the experience of specialists in our company and extensive local knowledge, we can offer a range of services tailor-made to meet your specific property investment requirements.
By working in partnership with you towards the achievement of your investment objectives, we ensure that you are confident and happy throughout each stage of the process. The main stages are as follows and we can provide both the complete acquisition and management service or selected parts of this service:
Individual Consultation and Investment Analysis
An experienced member of our team will meet with you to confirm your exact requirements and objectives. We will undertake an initial investment analysis to illustrate expected returns over set periods of investment and will agree on timeframes in which to proceed
Search and Acquisition
Armed with local knowledge of the area and markets we set about searching for suitable properties. We are in the fortunate position of not only being able to utilise the extensive range of properties and expertise available from our highly regarded sales department, but we have forged good relationships with many of the other local estate agencies enabling us to access the widest choice of desirable properties. During the search, we will obviously only be considering properties that have a good letting potential and will advise you on the likely rent achievable, any need for re-decoration or new fixtures and fittings to increase its rental desirability, and estimate costs involved. Offers will be made on suitable properties.
Cooke & Co financial solutions can provide you with quotations and costings and are experts in all types of investment finance.
To attract quality tenants and minimise void periods, it is vital that properties are presented to a high standard. We will advise on, arrange and oversee any works required to bring the property to a standard suitable to rent on the Thanet market.
Letting and Management
As one of the leading Letting Agents in Thanet, our experienced and efficient Lettings Team will ensure that your property is marketed effectively and that suitable tenants are found and vetted. We will then organise the set up of the tenancy and be responsible for the ongoing management of the property.
