GETTING STARTED

So you have decided to become a first time investor or have increased your property portfolio or have decided to rent your current home, this guide will give you a thorough understanding of the letting process, a landlords obligations and the Hopkins Ward Service.

Why choose Hopkins Ward?

As our tagline suggests Our experience will guarantee a successful tenancy. With a combined 30 years experience in the residential Dublin market, Ian & Robbie will personally oversee every step of this process.

Property Valuation

We offer a free no obligation letting valuation. Either Ian or Robbie will personally visit your property and advise on all aspects of the rental process.

We will advise on landlords/property responsibilities as far as current rental standards are concerned. This can range from smoke alarms to drying facilities. In recent times basic letting standards have changed and we will ensure your compliance.

We will advise on any decorative/refurbishment works that could or should be undertaken prior to entering a tenancy. Although we are not here to spend a landlords money, we would hope to give good budgeting advice to ensure a higher rent and a better caliber of tenant.

It is important that we set a rent that is competitive, compliant with RPZ and achievable. Using our extensive knowledge of the local rental market, we will value the monthly rental amount based on location, size, condition, parking etc. At this point we can also advise on whether a property can/should be advertised as furnished or unfurnished.

For first time landlords we are more than happy to put aside more time at our initial meeting as we are aware that becoming a landlord can seem a minefield but in placing your trust in Hopkins Ward we will simplify the process.
