Public event to help ‘landlords maintain their assets’

Buy-to-let landlords are being invited to attend a special public event tomorrow which will offer expert tips and advice. 

The event, which will be hosted by Harrison Murray Lettings, will take place at the company’s office in Northampton at 1.30pm. 

Harrison Murray Lettings will showcase its experienced and professional service for buy-to-let landlords and tenants and the added benefits it offers as part of the Nottingham Building Society, also known as The Nottingham.

The aim is to build on the free lettings advice offered including utilisation of an online system, FixFlow, which helps tenants open up effective lines of communication with their landlord to report any problems.

It not only helps iron out any ‘headaches’ the person renting may be experiencing, but also enables the landlord to act more quickly to help maintain what is usually their most important - and expensive - asset.

Head of letting, Stephen Reade, explained: “FixFlow is a fantastic way of making sure both landlord and tenant are happy and it is just one of a number of things we have done to improve our offering.

“As well as ‘front-facing’ developments like utilising FixFlow we have upgraded internal systems and databases to keep ahead of the constantly changing lettings market, and all of this whilst making sure we have remained - and will remain - extremely customer service focused.

“Keeping client needs front and centre is imperative as we are helping landlords maintain their assets and tenants to live safely and comfortably, particularly in a climate where many individuals and families are finding it hard to get on the property ladder and are forced to rent.

“Where we are different is that by being part of a large, established building society like The Nottingham we can bring in that extra bit of trust factor as well as an ‘all-under-one-roof’ offering when it comes to property and financial services and advice.

“Our forthcoming event is designed to showcase all of those positives and to have a bit of fun along the way. We hope as many people as possible can attend.”​

Inspirational youngster Harry Charlesworth will be the guest of honour at the event not just highlighting the range of products and services HM Lettings has available to the people of Northamptonshire but showcasing the agents’ charitable side too.

Twenty-month-old Harry, from Newnham, suffers from cerebral palsy and a number of other complex conditions after experiencing strokes during birth, meaning he has significant ongoing healthcare needs.

Harrison Murray recently got a fundraising curry night in aid of The Helping Harry Trust off to a flier when lettings and residential colleagues teamed together to handhis mum a cheque for £500 to sponsor the event.

On Friday 10 February, at 1.30pm, Harry himself will take centre stage as the estate agency team not only promote their new-look lettings offering but alsoshare another plan to help the charity raise money.

It comes in the form of four members of the Northampton team, plus a colleague from Harrison Murray’s East Hunsbury office, who will betaking part in the 5k Colour Run in London’s Wembley Park in June.

    "experienced and professional service for buy-to-let landlords". I don't think so. I would never recommend this lettings agency to anyone. Having paid for full management, but HM Lettings failing to protect the deposit; being told verbally that they would 'sort it out for me' but hence receiving no response in answer to my many, many emails complaining or how they plan to resolve the issue; but yesterday simply told by email:
    The deposit needs to go back to the tenant as you are aware, this was not registered, so to claim for the dilapidations this will have to be taken to court.
    And whose fault is that? So I am left with a house that has over £1000 worth of damage left by the tenant; I have done everything by the book, and I stand to lose out.
    But I should "put my complaint in writing". Which I have done; again and again.
    Disgusted...
    P.S: I'm not a 'business' landlord; I have a house that was my gran's and that I still have a mortgage on and opted for full management so everything would be stress free and done the right way, regardless of the cost. I think that was rather niaive of me...
