At Atkinson Walker we have a passion for rental property and lettings. It is, after all our bread and butter business and we like nothing better than to find the right property for the right tenant.
It is perfectly natural to have qualms about relocating to London, but as soon as you walk through our doors, we dedicate ourselves to smoothing a pathway through any potential pitfalls that you might encounter. In our view, you should spend less time fretting over rules and regulations and more time chatting over dinner and drinks.
Friendly, yet thorough, our unobtrusive working processes are designed in such a way that you need only concentrate on when you move in and not how.
Maintenance of a rental investment property or even your own home if it’s being rented out is becoming increasingly focused on safety issues, which is a reassuring development for any new tenant. Concerning energy appliances, we feel that attention to detail and a full grasp of the legal requirements in this area is the key to making your occupancy as hassle-free as possible. Therefore, you can be assured that an Energy Performance Certificate will be in place before you even view a property, let alone rent it through us.
Every effort has been made to create a service that is both seamless, transparent and customer orientated, beneficial to both tenant and landlord alike. And we are on hand throughout working hours to assist with all maintenance issues and all our tenants have access to help outside hours should an emergency arise.
We realise that the flow of funds from tenant to landlord must be directed in an utmost professional and efficient manner. Our multi-lingual and fully-qualified accounts department leave nothing to chance in this respect and use the latest dedicated software in order to keep track of all financial transactions concerning any lettings property. They are also conversant with all aspects of UK tax laws and their applications to residents and non-residents.

INTERIOR DESIGNED FURNISHING & CLEANING PACKAGES FOR RENTAL INVESTMENT PROPERTIES
Most Landlords know that in return for good rents, prospective tenants will expect a top-notch property specification. Even our entry-level rental apartments will have contemporary kitchens and bathrooms and stylish furniture. Tasteful yet neutral, the decor will give you an ideal starting palette when it comes to putting in those extra, homely touches.
Cutting edge furnishing packs have proven to be an excellent start-up tool for landlords and an attractive incentive for tenants. We can call on our sister company to not only provide such packs but install everything right down to the last detail including window treatments, soft furnishings and all the accessories needed. Some of London’s brightest and best designers can be called upon in order to completely transform and enhance the value of a wide selection of rental properties.
Good design reflects the landlord’s commitment to excellence and therefore attracts the more discerning tenant as does presenting a clean tidy house or flat for new tenants. All of our properties have access to our post tenant cleaning service to ensure we can maximise on our clients’ rental yields. Click here for more information.
Should your property require refurbishment or just a makeover we can help organise this too. Working with a tried and tested group of contractors, we are able to undertake major re-decoration projects or freshen up a tired property that requires a new lease of life. Doing this can often increase rental income.
