A safe pair of hands for overseas based London landlord’s

The London property market is not only an attractive investment for people who live in the UK, but also for overseas investors.

One of the issues that an overseas landlord faces is choosing an agent they can trust and who can take a hands-on approach to managing their property portfolio in their absence.

And that is something that we pride ourselves on here at Rocket.

But, don’t take our word for it, we spoke to one of the overseas landlords that we work with, Pawel Scott, and this is what he had to say:

I was brought up as a conservative investor, which is a big part of the reason I now have a property portfolio in London, because I have confidence in brick, mortar and land, as well as the London property market.  

As a landlord, the values I appreciate most in an agent are reliability and trustworthiness and this is made even more important due to the fact that I operate from overseas.

There are times where I might be out of reach and so I need to know that everything is in order and I don’t have to worry about it.

And, it’s not just about finding an agent who is a good partner for a year, but one who is just as reliable ten years later, as property is not something I dip in and out of, for me it’s a long-term investment.

I’ve found working with Rocket that they are consistently proactive, timely and extremely transparent, we have an entirely open book relationship.

It has also been a nice change of pace working with a smaller team rather than some of the larger companies who have previously managed my properties.

This has made it easier to build relationships and maintain continuity with members of the team at Rocket responsible for dealing with my portfolio, which is something I value.

It helps as well that Rocket is run by fellow landlords because, as with any walk of life, being in the same position brings a certain level of relatability and understanding that cannot otherwise be matched.

I would wholeheartedly recommend working with Rocket, especially if you’re an overseas based London landlord.

They have proven themselves to be an ideal partner, providing a personal service while also allowing me to have a hands-off approach with my portfolio when necessary, taking care of all my property needs.
