What Four Things Are terrifying Landlords in London?

In this terrifying two-minute read, we look at what
ghoulish goings-on are keeping landlords up at night—a Halloween Week Special.

There are many different fears we all have in life.

There’s the fear of scary clowns like the one made infamous
by the horror classic It.

Or more everyday things like fear of failure, of missing out
or missing the bus.

One of the things we’ve become very skilled at over the
years we’ve been working in the London rental market is helping
landlords overcome their fears.

And below are four things landlords fear. The good news is
we know how to put these nightmares to bed once and for all.

Terrifying Tenants. Most tenants are
great people, but one bad experience can leave landlords emotionally scarred.
Proper vetting of prospective tenants through careful referencing can exorcise
this fear.

Devilish Debt. No one likes losing money,
and that’s why landlords break out into a cold sweat at the thought of their
rent not being paid. Again, good referencing plays a big part in reducing the
risk of arrears, as does good communication with tenants to head off any rent issues
before they become problems.

DIY Hell. We don’t mean the usual do it
yourself approach to putting up a shelf or fixing a leaky tap. Many landlords
have discovered to their peril just how hard it is to do everything themselves
when it comes to managing their rental property. There’s all the paperwork, the
laws, the accounting, the maintenance, the list goes on. The good news is we
can help with all that and make it a lot less frightening for you.

Scary Lettings Agents. Just like
Halloween parties some are a lot better than others (the 2020 vintage looks
like one we’ll need to forget thanks to Covid-19!). A good letting agent, like
us, will banish those scary spectres away. That’s because we market our landlords’
properties properly, we carry out referencing and inspections correctly, and we
always treat our landlords and tenants with courtesy, professionalism,
and respect. Plus, we never trick anyone.

We hope this helps and if you’re feeling
brave and wanting to get in the spirit of Halloween why not check out the 2012
supernatural horror film “Sinister” starring Ethan Hawke. It has been crowned
the scariest movie ever made.

This is due to heart rate tests carried out
on viewers of a selection of horror films by a study called ‘The Science of
Scare Project.’ What’s the scariest movie you’ve ever seen?

Happy Halloween from all of us at Holland Properties
