Hi, I'm a new BTL investor and my first purchase is due to complete on Friday.I signed up with a lettings agency which I thought had a good reputation but thus far I've had difficulty contacting them and getting what I've asked for from them. It doesn't bode well. I had difficulty contacting them before I signed up but was assured I would have a named person to contact once signed up.Since signing the contract I've had no contact from the agency other than trying to sell me snagging services.As I'm within the 14 day cooling off period I'm thinking I might be better off cancelling and going elsewhere.Can anyone recommend a company they have dealt with?
I have a property in Preston and I would highly recommend Northwood. Because I'm so far away, I have mine let on a guaranteed rent scheme. You don't get as much each month, but there are no headaches, Northwood deal with everything, and they keep me in the loop if anything needs to be done.
Hi Carol /Shirley
Are your properties standard single let BTL. I am considering purchasing a student house in Preston but starting the DD process.
All the best.
Yes, mine is a single let BTL.
Thanks Carol. I'm not really looking for a guaranteed rent scheme. I need a decent return and losing 12% is enough of a loss at this point in time. I might change my mind down the line though! Good to know Northwood are good for future reference.

Thanks Vanessa, I didn't realise they did full management too so I'll give them a call.
Hi Shirley, I am in the same situation as you and I was also in talks with this agency today and as you mentioned they are a difficult agency to get hold off, if you don't mind can you drop me a line at Ravi.firstname.lastname@example.org I just want to catch up and find out the difficulties you are experiencing with them and your opinion on them? My property is in whittingham park
Mine too Ravi. I'll message you.
Get rid of them while you still can then do lots of reading here on property tribes to figure out your way forward.
