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

  • Mathew Chan

    I worked with Jessica from Colliers Wood office on my first time renting in London (and this country) and she been amazingly helpful. We suspect we are the more demanding kind of renters who needs to know everything about the property in details, Jessica has been patient and responsive throughout the entire process. We are very thankful to have Jessica's help, without which our moving into the country might not be as smooth.

    Samuel Estates's listings are all high quality ones and they offer complimentary move-in service. Highly recommended.

  • Sam Thomas

    After nearly 4 years of renting a property through Samuel Estates we can now reflect about our experience with them as a Letting Agent.

    Throughout our tenancy, all issues were responded to efficiently and effectively as well as being resolved in the end despite any hurdles along the way. The team on the whole are very proactive in their replies and were very helpful throughout our 4 years!

  • abinash patnaik

    We rented through Samuel Estates in Colliers Wood and dealt with Yohana Gabanes as our Property Manager who was amazing. She was always quick to respond to things and helped deal with any issues that arose during our tenancy. Our checkout was smooth and hassle free. We are so happy to have her again as our property manager for our current tenancy 🙂

  • Benjamin Ofereh-Mugbeh
