How to be a Landlord

As property management and lettings experts, Ridgewater can offer advice to landlords on a wide range of subjects, from how to maximize rental income to targeting your property to specific groups of tenants.

There is a high demand in the South Devon area for good quality rental properties with the scope for a good rental return, and we continue to build relationships with companies and organizations located in the area who have both continual, and on-going, accommodation requirements for their employees.

We will organize a free no obligation market appraisal with you, and will meet you at your property to advise you on the best way to market the property and achieve its maximum rental potential. We will also advise on property staging and ways to improve the appeal of your home to prospective tenants and also give you an accurate rent valuation in line with current market conditions.

There are lots of important factors to take into account when renting a property and we can also advise you on the following:

  • Gas Safety
  • Electrical Safety
  • Carbon Monoxide
  • Fire Safety
  • Legionnaires Disease
  • Energy performance
  • Mortgages
  • Tax
  • Insurance
  • Obtaining Consent (mortgaged property)
  • Non- Resident Landlords

Our aim is to make your property realise the maximum rental yield whilst renting to the best possible tenants.
