Room Preparation

Preparing rooms and properties can be onerous and time consuming, particularly if you are located away from the property, have a significant number of rooms to look after, or prefer a ‘hands-off’ approach to investing.  To help landlords let rooms quickly and with minimal effort, Limelight’s Room Preparation service manages all aspects of room and property preparation and presentation in line with your budget and timescale, for a simple fixed-fee per room

What We Do

We work to understand your position and wishes and then project manage all preparations on your behalf, to produce a home that is attractive to tenants, fit for purpose, and ready to let. Our Bronze, Silver and Gold, fixed-fee-per-room packages range from ensuring rooms are well presented to arranging the complete fit out of properties with furniture, electrical items and utensils. We source items at the best price possible from reputable companies then arrange delivery, organise professional fitting or installation including safety inspections where appropriate, remove packaging, and take photographs

This service is especially popular with landlords and investors from outside the region looking for a ‘turn-key’ solution or those who haven’t the time or inclination to buy, transport, and professionally dress multiple rooms or whole properties. Our Room Preparation service further takes the stress out of owning investment property, and by using Limelight you can be certain that your valuable investment is being presented to the right standard with items that will last to attract and retain valuable tenants

Property Appraisal

It doesn’t matter if you are new to property investing or have been at this for a while, occasionally we can all do with some help and advice to help keep us focussed on our property investing goals.  If you are a landlord, potential landlord or investor looking to either:

+ Purchase or lease an investment property and require independent verification on the financials and overall feasibility of the proposition

+ Update an existing HMO or single-let property to attract new or different tenants or simply to remain competitive in a challenging rental market

+ Buy or lease a HMO or single-let property and require an assessment of the preparation required to make it fit for purpose and lettable

+ Convert a residential home into a HMO or single-let property and need informed and impartial guidance on the viability of your proposal

Then our Property Appraisal service can help get the property on track towards generating you returns quickly and sustainably, or more importantly stop you committing valuable money and effort on what might just be the wrong investment at the wrong time

What's Included?

+ A property visit either accompanied by you or on your behalf wherever it’s location in the region
+ Detailed evaluation of each room or apartment to ascertain current condition and potential layout options. Includes exterior of property
+ Kitchen(s) assessed for presence and condition of appliances; communal areas and bathroom(s) assessed for condition and suitability
+ Assessment of fire, gas and electrical safety checks and local authority compliance (where applicable), including recommendations where required
+ Analysis of local area (includes current situation and planned changes) and market rent review, including tenant profiling and marketing options
+ Consultation with existing tenants or leaseholders (if applicable) to ascertain satisfaction levels, maintenance issues, and future plans
+ Sensible recommendations for room and property preparation based on above packages
+ Recommendations for internal layout changes to maximise space and potential rental income

As time is often a factor when purchasing property, we aim to complete appraisals and have a report with you within 2 working days or possibly sooner or over a weekend if circumstances demand it.  Purchasing or refurbishing investment property can often be a risky and expensive business.  Partnering with Limelight can help mitigate some of this risk and cost and turn what could be a nightmare investment into a sustainable and properous one

Selling your HMO?

When it comes to divesting property HMOs, multi-lets and even some single-lets can have niche appeal, meaning that traditional estate agents often have difficulty agreeing on an appropriate market value and the best way to market. Because we know these types of property inside out and speak the language of investors, when the time comes to sell some or all of your investment portfolio Limelight is ideally placed to advise sellers on how best

to prepare the property for sale and which marketing channels might be appropriate.  We can also answer questions potential purchasers might have about rental demand and income, outgoings, void levels, legislatory compliance, planning, licensing, and tenant profile, to ensure you achieve the best possible price, as well as refer you to specialist mortgage brokers who can mimimise the risk of the deal falling through

If you are considering selling your property Limelight can help by:

+ Using our network contacts to identify potential buyers
+ Preparing financials showing potential purchasers’ likely ROI across a number of scenarios
+ Effective marketing using property and non-property channels
+ Suggesting pragmatic and affordable property improvements to maximise selling price
+ Overseeing the sales process and all coordinating all agencies to ensure a seamless transition
+ Ensuring continuity of tenants’ ASTs during transfer of ownership, to reduce upheaval and potential loss of tenant and income

Selling an investment property through Limelight either as a ‘going-concern’ or for conversion back to a family home is invariably quicker, easier and less expensive than using a traditional estate agent.  We purposely keep the volume of sales we undertake comparatively low to ensure our focus is on supporting seller and purchasor and turning around the sale as quickly as we can

Portfolio Management

If you’re as serious about property as we are, chances are you’ve built a portfolio of properties that are perhaps spread geographically and a mixture of property and tenant types. While this is great news, we’ve seen time and again how if not managed properly portfolios like this can quickly become unmanageable and the rewards of being a landlord replaced by the seemingly unending task of keeping up with tenants and troubleshooting problems, much of which can be avoided

Our Approach and Where we Can Help

Limelight has substantial experience of working with professional landlords and property investors locally and nationally managing portfolios ranging from two properties to dozens. Applying the same approach and diligence as we do when managing our own properties, our strength is in identifying ways to maximise efficiency and minimise costs across the portfolio, to ensure you are getting the best possible returns from your assets

Our Portfolio Management service is usually based on Limelight’s ‘Gold’ Room Preparation Package while all the additional services we offer landlords and investors are also available. Depending on the portfolio’s location, mix and scale we may also be able to adjust fees in recognition of the economies we will be able to achieve
