FAQs – new landlords

Our rigorous marketing activities at branch level and online, attract a constant flow of prospective tenants. These include high traffic websites dedicated to finding you the right tenant 24 hours a day; extensive Google product marketing; listing and advertising on major UK property portals including Rightmove, Primelocation and Zoopla and using social media.

As renting is a way of life now, most tenants are long-term renters who pay rent on time and look after their accommodation. These tend to be corporate and working professionals who have good budgets and like convenience. Attracting these types of tenant should be your priority.

Our Finance Director is a chartered accountant and oversees our Accounts Centre which provides a range of services to landlords including rent collection. Our strategy for managing rent payments works well mainly because our reference process is extremely thorough at the outset.

Benham and Reeves are founder members of ARLA Propertymark (the Association of Residential Letting Agents); members of The Property Ombudsman for Lettings and the Tenancy Deposit Scheme. Compliance is important to us and we thoroughly support agent accountability within the property sector.

Most of the properties we let are also professionally managed by us so you can be sure that if there's a problem, we will respond promptly to resolve any issues. More information can be found in our property management section.

Local market update Hampstead, London NW3

Sales Manager, Jeremy Stecker gives a market update on Hampstead, London’s famous hilltop jewel that combines beautiful period architecture with breath-taking views from the eponymous Heath. The affluent, leafy side streets that radiate outwards from the village-like High Street are some of the most picturesque in the Capital. Properties here are much sought after, not just for their attractiveness, but also for their proximity to so many sites of historical interest. The neighbourhood is highly prized for its distinctive and creative atmosphere which is evident in the amount of art galleries, museums and independent fashion outlets that cluster round Hampstead Underground Station (Zone 2). A sophisticated café culture, together with quick and efficient transport links into the West End and the City, make this the prime outer London enclave that has everything.
