Our Services for Property Sales, Lettings and Property Management

Residential Sales

Trust and honesty are important ingredients in the relationship between vendor and agent. In over 35 years of successful trading we have been entrusted with many thousands of property sales by vendors like you.

Achieving the highest price and selling to the strongest buyer requires a great marketing strategy with quality prospective buyer matching and this is our expertise. Our established local presence, experienced team, existing client and investor database gives us many distinct marketing advantages over our competitors.

Coupling all these points with our first-class service and proactive approach will ensure we exceed your expectations concluding with the successful sale of your property. Once we have agreed a sale, our dedicated sales progression team will proactively manage the transaction keeping you updated throughout.

Our staff are experienced in all aspects of the leasehold and freehold conveyancing process and they will liaise with all parties throughout the transaction.

We operate on a traditional No Sale - No Fee basis, so you only pay upon completion of our services. Book your valuation with us today!

Residential Lettings

We consistently register high numbers of professional tenants which is an essential ingredient for successful long-term tenancies and your peace of mind. Longer term tenancies often 24 - 36 months in duration are popular with business professionals, helping keep any void periods minimal and yields to their maximum.

With constantly changing landlord and property Legislation we keep abreast of all up to date requirements for Landlords. Our experienced staff continue to build and enhance their knowledge with regular ongoing training and development.

Once a proposed let has been agreed our progression team will confirm that all parties have completed our strict independent referencing process. Including ID vetting procedures in compliance with the Immigration Act - Right to Rent Scheme 2016. We maintain regular contact with our customers and ensure that the tenants provided continue to meet your requirements. Subsequently, you maintain the maximum possible return on your investment.

Our current market statistics show that on average, we agree new tenancies for our clients' properties within 4.7 days of marketing commencing. Whether you are an experienced or first time Landlord, we will ensure letting your property is as simple as possible.

If you live away from the area, overseas or simply seek a less involved role as a landlord, then Alex Neil's Property Management service is tailored to meet your needs.

Property Management

The enviable Alex Neil reputation for quality property management is well recognised by many high-profile employers and landlords across the United Kingdom. This attracts high quality professional tenants alongside corporate tenants who often stipulate that only fully managed properties will be considered for selection. Tenants that prefer a managed tenancy commonly commit to longer rental periods. Tenancy lengths often mirror employment contract durations which are often two/three years in length.

As property managers, we assume responsibility for the day to day care of your property with every element of the lettings process being managed, we arrange for any maintenance and repairs as necessary, organise professional inventories and safety certificates.
