Cost-effective makeover attracts top tenants

1 flat in Richmond £1,750 pm

After several years of being let out, the interiors of this one-bedroom flat was tired. To attract a better quality tenant and minimise empty periods, Swift recommended that the owner updates the bathroom and kitchen to reflect the high standard of this block off sought-after Richmond Green.

As the owner lives in South Africa, Swift managed the project – keeping the cost of refitting both the bathroom and kitchen to a high standard for only £12,000. The flat let for £1,750 – £100 more than the previous let – to a professional couple from Sweden.

I have been extremely happy with the professional service from Daniel and his team — they have dealt with any issues quickly and efficiently and have kept me updated at every stage. I value Swift’s ‘hands on’ approach in finding pragmatic and cost-efficient solutions (which is unusual among property management firms in London in my experience). Their preferred contractors/service providers for repairs and maintenance work provide good service at reasonable rates. I would highly recommend Swift.
