A London lettings agency is offering landlords the opportunity to list and let properties for free this month.
The offer comes from Target Location, which says any landlord instructing the firm before Christmas will benefit from a free tenant find service which usually costs £2,000. Target Location also does not charge renewal fees if the tenant stays beyond the initial contract, as standard.
The tenant find package includes professional photography, videos, virtual tours and floor plans, as well as advertising of the landlord's property on Rightmove, Zoopla and OnTheMarket and other platforms.
The agency’s additional ‘Christmas gifts’ for landlords this month includes free tenancy contracts, referencing from a leading UK referencing provider and tenant deposit registration.
Any additional outsourced services such as inventories will be chargeable to the landlord.
"It’s been a ridiculously tough year, that's why we want to spread some cheer this Christmas and help landlords occupy their properties for free" says Target Location director Ben Couper.
"With landlords able to save thousands of pounds in fees with a free letting package, some of the savings could even be passed on to tenants. It has been a difficult year for everyone and many landlords will have been feeling the effects of the pandemic with higher rent arrears and increased financial uncertainty" he adds.
Couper says that not only are landlords facing financial challenges but they must contend with more compliance obligations than ever before, which can be time-consuming, complicated and expensive.
He explains that as a new agency, Target Location is passionate about helping landlords and keeping their costs down and wants too hear from any landlord, whether it be a new investor to a professional portfolio holder.
“We want to help stimulate the property economy by getting more transactions happening and by employing more and more people to help facilitate the growing demand we are creating. As we say goodbye to a challenging 12 months, it's time for landlords to start 2021 with a smile" Couper concludes.
Target Location was founded by Couper and Edward Gosling after they built up 10 years of industry experience managing property portfolios for multiple companies.
