AJP are trusted buy to let property advisors, we have 30 years experience overseeing buy to let purchases. Our established letting agency will source the correct property for you using the local market intelligence to ensure purchases are made with our knowledge of the returns and rental demands in different locations.

In order to support our clients around the buy to let market place to make the right acquisitions, we offer the following support:

  • Provide initial advice on the buy to let process from buying through to letting
  • Via our local contacts we will highlight suitable ‘below market value’ properties
  • Advise you on local market values, rental yields and demand or resale prices and help you assess a valuation deal
  • We will undertake all due diligence on suitable properties using our in-depth market intelligence
  • View selected properties with you (or we can view on your behalf)
  • Make recommendations on purchases where our letting agency is confident of solid rental demands

In principal we wish to help you find suitable buy to let properties via our contacts, ideally with considerable ‘instant equity’. Please note if we assist you in negotiating a purchase, you will be purchasing the property direct with complete transparency via the agent and seller concerned, at which point the selling agent and solicitor would undertake the necessary identity and money laundering checks with you as per current legislation. We do not provide financial investment advice, before considering investing into buy to let properties we recommend you obtain your own professional advice.

There are some key driving factors in our search for suitable properties for our clients, specifically we look to avoid properties where;

  • You can’t add value
  • The discount is false
  • The resale market is limited
  • Capital growth is non-existent
  • They are too complicated to manage well
  • You can’t realise your gain
  • They have sky high service charges
  • They are difficult to finance

We have a vested interest ensuring you make the right buy to let choices, you drive the level of involvement you wish to have in regards to viewings and negotiations. We wish to build solid long-term working relationships with our landlord investors to grow their property portfolio, and we understand landlords need to see the desired end result with a profitable and successful let in order to achieve this.

Once you have a successful completion and following any refurbishment, our lettings agency will handle the tenant finding process swiftly from there, please refer to our Landlords Services for further details on this.

We are happy to invite you to our offices to provide you with a more detailed overview of our services and provide you with examples of properties our clients have purchased with our help, offering you the opportunity to ask questions on our recommended buy to let target market, and the lettings market in general.
