Landlord Property Acquisition Service

Julie Matthews, our Head of Landlord Acquisition, works on behalf of existing and new Landlords, both nationally and internationally based. With her expertise and dedication, she helps them either expand their current property investment portfolio or get into the buy to let market for the very first time.

Our popular Buy-to-Let acquisition service offers our clients an opportunity to discuss objectives and budget. Then Julie and our team will source you the right investment property to meet your needs.

Our Service

We offer a full beginning-to-end service, see the steps below for more information:

Step 1: Understanding your requirements

Through an initial consultation, either in person, online or by phone, Julie will work to understand what you’re looking. We take great care to understand what you need from a property, whether it be a home or investment. If you do not know where to buy or what sort of property your budget will yield in different areas, we can help you shape your brief.

Step 2: The search process

Once we have entirely understood your requirements, we start the extensive search –registering with agents, developers and individual companies and previewing potential properties for consideration. We’ll then prepare an individual ‘shortlist’ report. The report will include:

  • several investment options
  • the level of investment required
  • any refurbishment needs and accompanying quotes
  • anticipated rental per month, gross and net yields and capital appreciation

Julie can take you to see any potential units that have been shortlisted. Usually, this can be consolidated into a single morning or afternoon (depending on the number of properties under consideration). Alternatively, we can undertake the viewings on your behalf taking videos, checking condition/location/neighbours etc. and feed this back to you.

Step 3: Negotiating the purchase

Once you’ve identified your ideal property, Julie will act on your behalf to offer and negotiate to secure it. She has an excellent track record of successfully negotiating savings from asking prices. Our client’s bids are often favoured as selling agents and vendors have greater confidence that the deal will conclude successfully.

Step 4: Managing the purchase progression

Julie can act as the first point of contact for you during the conveyancing process. Being actively involved while surveys, contracts and queries are being dealt with between solicitors is often crucial to ensure the purchase is being progressed quickly and efficiently.

What this means for you

When you’re investing money into a Buy-to-Let property you want to know your chosen agency will do everything they can to make the process straightforward. You also want to know that they’re working on your behalf to get you the best value for your money.

We save you time

Searching for a property is very time consuming and can often result in failed attempts to secure the right investment. With Julie’s in-depth market knowledge, she can quickly ensure you receive considerations offering a real opportunity to increase value in your portfolio (in yield and/or capital appreciation).

We filter out properties that don’t meet your requirements (and personally view every shortlisted prospect property) ensuring you don’t waste your time considering properties that will not work for you.

We save you money

We give you sound research-based advice on values to guide you as best as possible as to the right property for the right price in what can be a fast-changing market. Interestingly, buyers are often considered more seriously by selling agents when a buyer has appointed a search agent to represent them – especially in the case of overseas investors.

We offer unrivalled access

Through our relationships with estate agents, developers and individual portfolio owners, we can present properties to you that you would not have otherwise seen.

We offer a stress-free process

Our property lettings and management team can then handle everything else that is required to get your property let and, of course, to look after your investment while tenanted—thereby offering you a seamless service from start to finish.

What our customers think

  • Shameem Bhyat

    Paul at Samuel Estates has been exceptional. His no-nonsense attitude helped enormously with the sale of my house. At a time when good conveyancers are hard to come by, Paul made great recommendations and facilitated communications with all parties with speed and efficiency, always keeping me in the loop at every stage of the process. It can certainly be challenging when it comes to selling your home but Paul really made the process easy. Thank you so much.

  • Kayley Donnelly

    This was the smoothest experience I've had moving to a new flat. Daniel was really helpful and very accommodating when we tried to arrange a second viewing. He was very responsive to emails which I really appreciated, and unlike other agencies I was not harassed with lots of phone calls! Very happy with the flat and the service received.

  • Bel Vita

    The worst agency I've ever rented in, they don't care about the tenant's welfare, no repairs are done, they want to hold the tenant responsible for everything, I do not recommend it!

  • David Evans

  • Charlie

    I’m not someone to usually write a review, but I was highly impressed with the service I received from Samuel Estates. I would highly recommend Jessica to anyone looking for a new home. I have had to move a few times over the last few years and she was the best estate agent I have ever dealt with. She was helpful, professional and answered any questions we had promptly and efficiently. She made the process stress-free and took care to make sure we was happy every step of the way. I highly recommend.
