This means one that not only are the prospective tenant vetted and referenced thoroughly, but we make sure that we meet everyone in person, with the first instance beginning with a phone call.

Why Choose Somerset Lettings to Manage Your HMO?

If you are looking for an experienced team to take care of your investments and tenants - we can help!

With the help of our specialist HMO services, landlords across Somerset are able to free up their own time, know they are kept up to date, compliant and paid on time.

As a Landlord, you will know that the work involved in the managing of HMO properties, considerably more than managing a single let in terms of specialist advertising, tenant find and vetting, management of multiple tenancies and staying on top of the forever changing compliancing.

We know that as a busy HMO landlord, one of the many downfalls we hear is having to keep on top of the tenant find, compliancing, repairs and maintenance, whilst chasing tenants for rent each month, keeping on top of who has paid and who has not can be a timely event, especially if you have a portfolio of properties.

In today's modern times, we are seeing an increase in the volume of tenants who are looking for the ease and cost effectiveness alternative to private house renting.

Shared homes continues to be a modern day approach to renting, for professionals and students, and one that is fast becoming a sound property investment for landlords and investors alike.

How Do HMO Differ From Single Lets?

If you are new to the world of HMO,  you will find that there are a number of differences when it comes to tenant finding when compared to single lets.

When it comes to marketing, we find that the mainstream portals such as Zoopla are not effective for HMO tenant finding, we need to use Spareroom and Openrent, these are the best go to websites for finding great tenants looking for co sharing properties.

Tenancy deposits are also lower than a usual property rent. For HMO's, we always ask for a deposit of £250 - £400, this is then stored in a Government backed Tenancy deposit account and is refundable upon the tenant leaving the room clean and without rent arrears.

We Cover All The Basics

  • Transparency -  Our business is built on fantastic relationships, outstanding service and full transparency. There are no hidden fees or prices, we will always keep you informed and in the picture.
  • Perfectly Placed Marketing - When it comes to marketing, we know how and where to place your adverts so that your rooms are in front of the right customers at the right time.
  • Dedicated Property Manager - Our HMO Property Managers are the best at what they do. We always inspect properties on handover and ensure that they are presentable, thoroughly complete so there are no last minute niggles that cause tenant issues later on, such as bathroom hooks, garden waste, leaky pipes etc,  and ready to house their new tenants.Our Property Managers are on hand 24/7 to answer questions and queries from tenants, fix maintenance issues fast, keep you updated on everything and ensure that everything runs smoothly.
  • No Stone Unturned - Every potential tenant goes through a series of meetings and greetings  with us before seeing a room. We have an in depth conversation, finding out about them and their lifestyle requirements, then they go through further questioning with our viewings expert face to face to get a good handle on the type of person they are, their presentability, and finding out more about them before we offer them a room and begin the legal checking requirements.
