We are charging a flat fee of just £295 + VAT for our ‘let only’ service, across Craven, until the end of September, subject to terms and conditions. In addition, discounted rates are also available on our fully managed service, which deals with everything from rent collections to moving days.
In another major development, We have recently appointed Emma Kerrywood as Head of our lettings division. Emma brings two decades of industry experience to the role and is now responsible for overseeing lettings across all of our 20 offices.
Tim Usherwood, a Director, who heads up our Skipton office, explains: “The rentals market throughout Skipton, Settle and the Craven area as a whole is especially buoyant at the moment so smartly presented, well-located homes that are realistically priced will let almost immediately.
“This is partly due to evolving tenant demographics which mean we’re seeing growing numbers of retired people renting, who have sold up so they can enjoy their equity, as well as a big increase in families looking to rent close to the area’s best schools. Plus, there are lots of people relocating with work, potential buyers who have sold homes and are looking for their next move and a growing number of people who simply decide they don’t want the commitment of a mortgage.
“As a result of this soaring demand, there is a major shortage of quality rental property available in the area and we have lots of tenants registered with us who are actively searching for homes. This makes it a great time for both existing landlords and owners of empty properties to contact us for a no obligation market appraisal. It’s fair to say that there has never been a better time for empty property owners and landlords to maximise their returns and find good tenants.”
One property that we recently launched onto the market, that is immediately attracting high levels of interest is a substantial two bedroom, second floor apartment in Skipton town centre’s Glista Mill on Broughton Road. The stylish apartment, which is priced at £695 per calendar month, offers en-suite facilities to the master bedroom, a handy utility area, modern kitchen and secure parking. The development is just a few minutes walk from Skipton town centre’s retail and leisure amenities, the railway station and Aireville Park.
