Landlords around the globe have faced the same challenge; how to find the ‘ideal tenant’? Now in the UK, thanks to a new online marketing service launched by Movestart.co.uk in partnership with Landlord Assist, landlords are being given a helping hand in finding a tenant as close to ‘ideal’ as possible.
The website provides a platform for private landlords to promote their properties on all the major property portals, including such well known names as rightmove.co.uk, findaproperty.co.uk, Zoopla and Primelocation.
For a marginal fee of £49, the landlords receive thorough tenant referencing and background information. Landlords would normally advertise their properties in the regional press at a cost ranging from between £50 and £70 per week; Movestart.co.uk’s fee is a good value, considering the important information they are receiving in return and the broad audience their property is going to be exposed to. An additional positive is that, the property will continue to receive national exposure until it is rented.
Once tenants are interested in renting an advertised property, they will be fully vetted by Landlord Assist’s referencing service, providing a guarantee to private landlords that they will receive rental payments on time.
The new service is due to be launched on the 1st of January, 2012.
