Products & Services

Landlord

Every landlord wants to know that both their property and money are in safe hands. With 20 years experience, over 85 offices and over 20, 000 landlords nationwide, we are an established and well-respected company in the world of lettings.

We understand that every landlord is different so we aim to be as flexible as possible by offering a range of letting options:

Fully Managed
Rent Collection
Tenant Find

Our free market valuations consider local features that will appeal to potential tenants - local parks, schools and shopping facilities. We do not simply give you a high valuation to acquire your business but promise to provide realistic rental figures, based on true market conditions.


Selling

These days it seems that almost every estate agent attempts to offer a unique set of services to sell your home, whether it's a free valuation, accompanied viewings or floor plans. At Northwood, we believe achieving a truly successful sale is based on so much more.

We were recognised for our high levels of service by our own customers in the most recent AllAgent Awards by winning 4 national awards and over 90 gold medals across the network of offices.

Thank you to all the team at Northwood Barnstaple. Sean gave me such good advice to make the property look lived in and presentable. While I could not fault the pictures Margaret took. They were with me every step of the way. Within two weeks on line I had a offer and then within 2months the sell was completed. I will recommend you guys to anyone with a house to sell.

Northwood Barnstaple took on my property on a Guaranteed Rent Scheme. From start to finish they have excelled. The level of support was way above what I expected. When the tenant had a problem they liaised with me quickly, found local tradesmen (at amazing prices) and kept both me and the tenant happy. I will highly recommend them.

Customer Testimonials

A first rate service. Most helpful in every way, going the extra mile to ensure we had no worries. Sean, Margaret and Emma have taken personal responsibilty to resolve problems and find and engage tradesmen on our behalf. Well done.


I had a good feeling about this estate agent after the first contact with them. Very professional and very personable. The property I was selling was marketed very well, and was sold subject to contract quite quickly. I was kept up to date regularly with the sales process. They were even chasing up progress reports that other estate agents should have been doing further down the chain.
I have recommended Northwood to people I know who are thinking of putting their property on the market.
An excellent service!


Northwood provided a really comprehensive and professional service. They gave me all the relevant information and guidance at the outset and told me what to expect. They showed me examples of comparative properties and gave me an accurate estimate of the likely rental value before marketing the house for letting. They took a lot of trouble showing the property to prospective tenants and assessing the best ones to proceed with. They also produced an extremely detailed, clear and accurate inventory, with photographs, to establish the condition of the house and its fixtures and fittings at the time of letting. I was very impressed with their thoroughness and professionalism, and their competitive fees, and would recommend them to anyone thinking of letting their property.


The experience we have had using Northwood has been fantastic. Both Margaret and Emma have been fantastic in helping us to find a house, and then subsequently to move house through them again. Nothing was ever to much and the took ever phone call or walk in question we had and made it a priority to answer it (there were a lot of questions, I like to worry). I have rented properties a cross the country and also went through the buying process once before and have never come across people as lovely as these. Thank you so much for all your help.


Absolutely delighted with the smooth handling of our Braunton property by Sean and the team at Northwoods Barnstaple. Sean takes all the worry out of renting the property and deals with any little problems as they arise. I am happy to recommend Northwoods Barnstaple to any landlord seeking a reliable letting agency.

From Our Website

Being a landlord brings many rewards, responsibilities and risk. Selecting the right letting service for you and your property is all about finding the right balance of all three factors. Our Guaranteed Rent service best suits those looking for the financial stability of a fixed income with no involvement while at the other end of the spectrum the Tenant Find service is perfect for a landlord who is comfortable with taking on a much greater level of responsibility. OurGuaranteed Rent service offers landlords the benefit of a guaranteed fixed income on their property, regardless of whether or not it is let or the tenant stops paying.


We effectively become your tenant, guaranteeing you a fixed rental income. We then sub-let the property, taking great care to select the right tenants and then manage the property throughout the full duration of the tenancy - leaving you to get on with your busy life. Fill in your contact details and one of our team will get in touch to explain the finer details and book a free market appraisal.


This document gives you important information about your tenancy and helps to answer any questions you may have. If you have any have any further questions please get in contact with your local office.


Protect your possessions and your liability to your landlord with competitive home insurance designed specifically for Northwood tenants. Moving into a new property? We know it's an exciting time with lots to organise and do. In all the excitement, it is important not to forget to arrange your insurance. Northwood Insurance Services can arrange cover to protect both your landlord's property as well as your contents. Northwood franchisees may act as Introducer Appointed Representatives of Jelf Insurance Brokers trading as Marsh Commercial.


Using a letting agent means that as a landlord you don't need to sacrifice your personal time and take on the associated responsibility for letting out and managing the property. When looking for an agent consider factors such as how they will market the property, how they will conduct viewings, their high street presence and their available pool of quality tenants. For a downloadable free checklist on how to select the right letting agent to ensure the protection of both your money and your property by partnering with a professional agencyclick here.


We all have different tastes and it is worth remembering that one individual's choice of style might not be in tune with another's. When you decide to leave your property, the last thing you want to do is spend time and money redecorating, however a small investment can often lead to a big return. Buyers need to visualise their furniture and their own lifestyle in the property - setting it out as a 'ready-to-move-into' blank canvas will greatly assist them in this. Northwood can help you to present your home to appeal to the widest selection of buyers, maximising our chances of agreeing a sale at the highest possible price.


We are pleased to introduceMortgageAdvice Bureau, who work with Northwood to provide our customers with expert mortgage advice. They have access to thousands of mortgages, including exclusive deals not available on the high street. Their award-winning advice is tailored to your circumstances, whether you're looking to take your first steps on the property ladder, moving home, or even investing in a buy-to-let property. They can help find the right mortgage for you and support your application every step of the way.


The amount you are able to borrow will be based on your income and the size of your deposit. It is best to speak to a mortgage advisor and ideally get an agreement in principle from a lender before you start viewing, as this can help speed up the process. You will need to contact your estate agent, who will take your offer to the seller. Alongside the price being offered, factors such as your ability to proceed will be taken into account. The offer will then be rejected, accepted, or negotiations will begin.
