Let us help you avoid the winter void periods and ensure your property is let all year round.

Avoiding those Winter voids over the Christmas period


From late October through to the New Year, landlords can find it tough. Once the Summer is over, the number of viewings start to steadily decrease into the Autumn. Although, there are still some great opportunities to be had for landlords and tenants alike, mid-November through till January sees a lull and prospective tenants tend to put everything on hold, at least until the Christmas decorations are down.

So, should landlords cut their losses, accept that rental income will tail off, and simply hang up their keys until the New Year kicks in? 

Not with Townends. Let us take care of the lettings while you keep warm in the wintry weather.

By choosing us to manage your property, we’ll take care of everything, so you don’t have to. We will make sure that the viewings keep coming throughout the seasonal downturn, making void periods a thing of the past.

Our data tells us that about 90% of tenants begin their property searches simply by typing into Google. That’s why we use Google Paid Advertising – so that any prospective tenants searching for a suitable property all over our core market areas of London and Surrey can access information about your property straight away.

Townends also knows that if more portals have information about your property, more fingers will click on it. That’s why we will advertise your residence on all the other major online agents’ websites as well as our own and place it at the top of the Rightmove search results, so it appears as a prestigious Featured Listing.   

Our team of experts in every branch regularly communicate with many tenants looking for that perfect place, and so by letting your property with us, we can easily property match in order to target suitable tenants who are seeking available homes in November, December and January.

At Townends, our speciality really is property. We possess all the expertise to connect tenants in need of a home to landlords who want to maintain their rental income over the Winter.

We have specific team members who will take professional photographs of your home so that any potential tenants can see it in its best light. We’ll also draw up a quality floor-plan showing all the intricate dimensions of the residence.
