Together, Salboy and urbanbubble have a combined 40 years of experience working in the UK property market and can, therefore, make your investment go further by optimising rental amounts and planning for the future.
If you invest in us, we will invest in you – it is as simple as that. You can trust that LOCAL will always put your needs first and strive to make your investment as lucrative as possible.
Our developments were designed with the modern rental market in mind. We have masterfully crafted our one, two, and three-bedroom apartments, townhouses and penthouses following extensive market research and are proud to have created some of the best schemes in the city.
All our developments have been strategically placed in some of the city’s most central locations for our residents’ satisfaction. Within close proximity to the best bars, restaurants, and shopping areas, LOCAL residents will not have to venture far to enjoy the best amenities the city has to offer.
Most building management companies operate from a branch, but our dedicated team wanted to be closer to residents. Our trained, onsite staff are available in all developments, working 24 hours a day to ensure life with LOCAL is as stress-free as possible. No matter the query, residents can feel at ease knowing they are being supported around-the-clock.
Our customised online landlord’s portal makes accessing important information and key documents easier than ever. Featuring all up-to-date information including tenancy agreements and property reports, Landlords can stay on top of their portfolio at a time that is convenient for them.
Landlords will be sent monthly and annual statements with a breakdown of their rental income, NET earnings and future payment dates.
Our elite team of experts have years of knowledge within the property rental process and will always ensure your involvement is as minimal and seamless as possible.
Finding the perfect resident for each apartment is important to us because we want LOCAL residents to stay with us for the long haul, not the short. Utilising all major platforms and extensive marketing plans, we will locate residents on behalf of our landlords and will manage the contracts and paperwork too.
Apartment viewings can be incredibly time consuming but as a LOCAL landlord, you will never have to worry about that again. As well as sourcing residents, we arrange and conduct all apartment viewings, which allows us to build trust with renters from day one.
Before your tenant moves in, we will conduct a full apartment inspection and resolve any issues we find.
Non-resident landlords can expect guidance and assistance with relevant tax legislation. After all, we do not want you to pay more than is necessary.
We will provide a full photographic inventory and will conduct a deep clean of your apartment before your resident moves in. Committed to going above and beyond, we will also give your resident(s) a welcome gift to make them feel right at home.
Maintaining the condition of your apartment is important to us and will therefore perform inspections every six months.
We strive to let your property on a long-term basis, and we do so by building strong relationships with residents and providing 24-hour support. But if your resident decides to leave, we will conduct a smooth
check-out process on your behalf, ensuring keys are safely retrieved, deposits are returned to residents
and any maintenance issues are successfully rectified.
Prior to your resident moving in, LOCAL will not charge you a penny. Therefore, any costs incurred via
marketing will be covered by us.
