While the media frequently report the ups and downs of the buy-to-let market, low interest rates and volatile stock markets, property still remains a shrewd investment.

Central London estate agents Kay & Co offer rental properties in prime W1 and W2 postcodes. Our lettings staff work hard to achieve minimum voids and maximum yields for our landlord clients.

Renting out a property is a huge commitment and can be extremely time consuming. While unlicensed, lettings is actually heavily governed by rules and regulations to which landlords have to abide. The industry requirements are constantly changing. For example, Right to Rent checks and new rules pertaining to carbon monoxide detectors/smoke alarms came into force in 2016 – another two sets of obligations to meet.

If you lead a busy life it’s easy to miss new lettings legislation and end up breaking the law. Managing a property yourself also carries the onerous burden of emergency maintenance, from a burst pipe at 3am or the heating not working in the middle of Christmas Day.

By using Kay & Co’s professional management service, landlords can sidestep any stresses of self management.
