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.

We offer a full beginning-to-end service, please 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

  • Charmaine Cheung

    Rented a place in London through Samuel Estates even when I was still living abroad, thanks to the fantastic Bilal Jamil who was so helpful throughout the whole process, helping arrange the virtual viewing and following up promptly right through to the move in date. Thank you so much Bilal!

  • Kia Wing

    The process right from searching to signing the contract has been smooth and easily laid out. Stefano has been amazing from the beginning of the process. He's been very responsive and understanding of what we needed, going the extra mile to secure us the perfect property. We would 100% recommend Stefano and Samuel Estates to anyone looking for their next property.

  • Natalia Sanchez

    We found a new place to rent through Samuel Estates and our experience so far has been quite positive. Bilal, who has been our main contact responsible for the "onboarding process", signing contracts etc.. has been very helpful and responsive solving all our questions promptly and keeping us updated during the whole time.

  • Lasse Berglund

    Bilal and Aleyna were both extremely helpful during our latest search for a flat.

    Booking viewings via email was painless, and the whole offer and referencing process was very smooth.

  • Brian Sharland

    Dealing with Samuel's Estate Agents has been a real pleasure. Their staff are friendly, courteous and efficient. All our queries were taken seriously and answered usually on the spot. The paperwork was sorted out quickly and the few issues after we had moved in were handled quickly too. Their aftercare is as good as their service.

  • Damir Lipa

    Brilliant service from Lina, my property manager at Samuel Estate in Streatham. Always available, positive attitude, prompt response and follow up to all requests, proactive and professional. Highly recommended!

  • isabela maciel

    Very happy with the services provided. From the lady who picked up the phone and managed to squeeze me into a viewing for 15 minutes after the call, to Stefano who showed the property and assisted me through the offering process with his excellent expertise. Also happy with the post signing service so far, including support for setting up and transferring bills.

  • Ava Chiu

    The whole renting process was very smooth. Agent Stefano is professional and responsive to our queries by providing detailed info every time. We love the property and area but it is a shame that the property is full of heavy cigarette smell in the upholstery which is deep inside and hard to get rid of the smell e.g. leather sofa. The whole experience will be even better if the smell has been removed by professional cleaning before we moved in. Unfortunately, Samuel Estate could not help much on this after we reported. Apart from this, the experience was good and staff are helpful! That's why it's 4 stars. Otherwise, we will give 5 definitely.

  • Christian Larsson

    I have been a happy client for many years and I continue to use Samuel Estates for my property management. Professional, transparent and service minded.

  • Ross Campbell

    My partner and I are a week away from moving in! The staff at Samuel Estates have been very helpful and quick to respond to any quieres throughout the process. Having engaged with almost all agencies within the area by far have found these to have the best properties and the best staff!
