In the heart of Kingpost Parade in Burpham, Seymours has been much more than a mere estate agency, we’re proud to be a member of our local community reaching our 20-year milestone.

\n\n\n\n

This remarkable journey mirrors the foundational spirit of Seymours, established in 1992 with a vision to revolutionise the local property market through unmatched customer care and an unwavering passion for the business of helping people move home.

\n\n\n\n

Over the last 20 years Seymours Burpham has embodied this vision, growing consistently by prioritising a personal service that reflects the wider company’s ethos deeply rooted in creating genuine connections and ensuring client satisfaction at every turn.

\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n

Understanding the emotional and logistical challenges of moving, Seymours Burpham has always placed significant emphasis on empathy, treating clients with the kindness and respect they would expect for themselves. This philosophy has not only facilitated successful property transactions but also fostered repeat business, testament to the trust and loyalty they inspire in their clients.

\n\n\n\n
\n

Beyond facilitating seamless moves, Seymours Burpham has dedicated itself to the local community, echoing the Seymours’ commitment to giving back.

\n
\n\n\n\n

By sponsoring local sports teams like Guildford Saints FC, Burpham Juniors FC, and supporting the Burpham Bowls Club, they have strengthened community bonds and promoted local sports. Their charitable endeavours, especially the impressive £100,000 raised for Woking & Sam Beare Hospice, demonstrate a deep commitment to making a tangible difference in people’s lives, far beyond the realms of property sales and lettings.

\n\n\n\n

Congratulations to the team, their coaches and everyone who supported them through this remarkable season. Here’s to many more!

As the curtains close on the 2023/2024 football season, a remarkable story of determination, skill, and teamwork unfolded as the Burpham Juniors Thunder (Under 8’s) concluded their season with an incredible unbeaten record. This is not just a story of victory, it’s a narrative of how passion and community support can elevate youth sports to inspiring heights.

\n\n\n\n

The Burpham Juniors Thunder competed in the Surrey Primary League top division against some of the best young talents in the region. Over the course of the season, they played 19 games, securing victories in 17 and drawing in 2. Achieving an unbeaten record in such a competitive league is no small feat and speaks volumes about the quality of the team, the strategic acumen of their coaching staff, and the spirited camaraderie among the players.

\n\n\n\n

At the core of this team’s success are its star players – George Axton, Adam Bevan, Leighton Pollitt, Seb Robinson, Leo Crane, and Ryan Wicks. Each of these young athletes brought their unique skills and determination to the game – whether it was a crucial save, a well-timed pass, a strategic goal, or simply the relentless pursuit of victory, these boys demonstrated time and again that they are a force to be reckoned with.

\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n

Behind every great team is a network of support and for the Burpham Juniors Thunder of course includes the coaches and parents, Seymours Estate Agents are also proud to be part of their journey. After proudly sponsoring of the team for the past few seasons and Seymours Burpham recently announced the continuation of this partnership for the next two years and are looking forward to the delivery of the much-anticipated 2024/2025 kit.

\n\n\n\n

The Burpham Juniors Thunder’s unbeaten season is a testament to what can be achieved when young talent is nurtured within a supportive community. It’s a reminder that in youth sports, the journey is just as important as the destination and that the lessons learned along the way are invaluable.

\n\n\n\n

Congratulations to the team, their coaches and everyone who supported them through this remarkable season. Here’s to many more!

Home ownership is at the bedrock of our society in the UK, at the heart of politics, economics and socially as many of us aspire to move up the housing ladder. Understanding the market’s nuances, the indispensable role of estate agents and the evolving landscape of property transactions is essential for professionals in the industry in order for them to provide the best advice for their clients.

\n\n\n\n

It’s with this understanding in mind that we sat down for a conversation between two eminent figures in the real estate domain: Ian Marlow, Group Operations Director at Seymours Estate Agents, and Iain McKenzie, CEO of The Guild of Property Professionals.

\n\n\n\n

This dialogue comes at a crucial juncture as Ian Marlow has recently been elected to join the National Advisory Council (NAC) with The Guild of Property Professionals, alongside 19 other distinguished individuals from across the UK. This appointment is not only a testament to Ian’s career to date, his expertise and contributions to the industry but also highlights Seymours’ pivotal role in shaping the future of the UK housing market and the estate agency profession.

\n\n\n\n

\n\n\n\n

\n\n\n\n

Excellence in Estate Agency

\n\n\n\n

At the core of Seymours Estate Agents is our relentless pursuit of excellence, a principle that has propelled our operations across 20 branches in Surrey. Their near two-decade affiliation with The Guild of Property Professionals speaks volumes about our commitment to quality and integrity in the real estate industry.

\n\n\n\n

The conversation between Ian Marlow and Iain McKenzie underscores the Guild membership’s criteria, focusing on all-round excellence in customer service, marketing effectiveness, team quality and community involvement. This comprehensive approach ensures people looking for an estate agent, can place their trust in a Guild certified agent to not only meet but exceed their expectations.

\n\n\n\n

UK Property Market: Insights and Outlook

\n\n\n\n

Despite the fluctuating nature of the UK housing market, insights from the conversation offer a reassuring perspective on its resilience and prospective trajectory. The UK market has demonstrated remarkable stability, supported by the foundational role of homeownership in society.

\n\n\n\n

The discussion, which you’re able to watch above, explores factors sustaining the market, such as a supply shortage and the intrinsic value of homes in the UK, suggesting a robust landscape for 2024, marked by increased market activities, mortgage rate stability and a healthy demand-supply equilibrium.

\n\n\n\n

The Big Decision: Choosing The Right Estate Agent

\n\n\n\n

Selecting an estate agent is a pivotal decision in any property transaction. This discussion highlights the significance of trust, marketing exposure and the value of good, strong personal relationships between agent, buyer AND seller, in this process.

\n\n\n\n

The Guild of Property Professionals membership emerges as a key trust indicator, providing clients assurance through a commitment to trust, integrity and results. The Guild’s expansive network and collaborative ethos further amplify the value delivered to sellers and buyers alike, enabling smoother and more efficient property transactions across the county, but particularly here in Surrey and south London.

\n\n\n\n

Buyer and Seller Dynamics

\n\n\n\n

Acknowledging the challenges and needs of buyers and sellers is vital for successful home-moves to take place. The conversation recognises the difficulties buyers face in finding their dream homes and the importance of partnering with an agent who prioritizes their best interests.

\n\n\n\n

For sellers, the Guild’s network offers unparalleled support and exposure, ensuring properties reach the broadest audience.

\n\n\n\n

This mutually beneficial relationship between buyers and sellers, fostered by a trusted network of estate agents, cultivates a fluid and vibrant marketplace.

\n\n\n\n

Adapting to Change: The Evolution of Real Estate Agencies

\n\n\n\n

While the estate agency industry has seen significant evolution, especially when you look at improvements in communication and technology, its essence remains unchanged – it’s a business about people.

\n\n\n\n

Seymours Estate Agents embodies this philosophy, prioritising a people-centric approach deeply woven into the community fabric, enriched by local knowledge and enhanced by technological advancements. The Guild of Property Professionals supports these efforts, highlighting the industry’s collective drive towards progress.

\n\n\n\n

Conclusion

\n\n\n\n

The engaging conversation between Ian Marlow and Iain McKenzie not only provides comprehensive insights into the current and future states of the real estate industry but also underscores the importance of leadership roles within industry bodies like The Guild of Property Professionals.

\n\n\n\n

Ian Marlow’s election to the National Advisory Council (NAC) signifies Seymours’ influential position in moulding the future of the UK housing market and the estate agency profession.

\n\n\n\n

As we navigate the evolving property landscape, Seymours are set to play a crucial role in steering the industry towards excellence, integrity, and an unwavering commitment to providing the best service to those looking to move home.

Seymours are thrilled to announce a monumental achievement in our charitable fundraising for @wsbhospices. In 2023 we successfully raised an astounding £31,776 for the charity, through a series of initiatives and events throughout the year such as charity golf days, quiz nights, dragon boat racing in Goldsworth Park and Soccer Aid hosted by Woking FC, to name but a few.

\n

This remarkable accomplishment not sets a new record for the amount raised for the hospice in a single year, but also means the total we’ve raised exceed £100,000, marking a poignant milestone in our charitable fundraising for Woking & Sam Beare Hospice.

\n

In celebration of this achievement, a ceremonial cheque presentation took place at the Woking & Sam Beare Hospice in Goldsworth Park where some of our partners were delighted to attend, showing a heartfelt expression of our commitment to supporting the invaluable work of Woking & Sam Beare Hospices.

\n
\n

“We are immensely proud of what we have achieved together for Woking & Sam Beare Hospices, reaching over £100,000 in cumulative donations is a testament to the strength of our community and the hard work of everyone involved. We are committed to continuing our support for the Hospices and making a positive impact in the lives of those touched by the Hospice.”

\n
\n

We’re already organising many more events throughout 2024 fundraising for Woking & Sam Beare Hospice – the compassionate care they provide to patients and their families is an inspiration to us all, and we are honoured to support them.

One in five households in England now rent their home from private landlords.

\n

It’s the second biggest way that people find a home in England, a smaller number than those who own their own but larger than those who rent social housing.

\n

The other big fact is that there are more potential tenants than there are properties available, so landlords get to pick and choose and rents are high.

\n

So if you’re looking for a home to rent it’ll come as no surprise that the competition to find somewhere suitable to live and the pressure to be accepted as a tenant can be quite intense.

\n

With all this in mind, what can you do to make sure you’re ahead of the pack when it comes to securing a rental property in such a fast paced market?

\n

Read on and we’ll give you the tips, tricks and info you need.

\n

Paperwork

\n

It can help to think of becoming a tenant in a new property in the same way as you might approach things if you were going for a job interview.

\n

When you’re just one of any number of people trying to secure the same thing you really need to stand out from the crowd – in a good way of course!

\n

So the very first thing you need to do is to make sure all of your paperwork is ready, in place and up to date.

\n

If you’ve rented before it can really help to have as many references from previous landlords or letting agents as possible. This can show that you are a reliable safe bet who can prove a history of paying rent on time, taking pride in where you live and keeping the premises in good condition.

\n

Of course there’s more to it than that – no one who lets out a property wants complaints about noisy or disruptive tenants, so everything you can do to show you have a good track record will stand you in good stead.

\n

Banking details, job status and proof of income so that you can prove you can afford the rent – well, these are all obvious things that any prospective tenant must realise will be important to someone who is letting a property.

\n

You can’t hire a car without a deposit and proof of who you are so why would a landlord simply just hand over the keys because you say ‘I’ll take it’?

\n

There’s also one other big thing that you’ll need proper paperwork for, and that’s proving you have the right to rent.

\n

Right to rent

\n

It’s a legal requirement for landlords to check that a tenant has ‘the right to rent’ in the UK.

\n

These checks must take place before a new tenant takes up residence and there are big penalties for landlords who don’t abide by the law. A letting agent can carry out these checks on behalf of a landlord and in many cases that’s who you’ll be dealing with.

\n

Having the legal right to live in the UK, and therefore the right to rent a property, is something that all tenants over 18 have to be able to prove, even if they’re not specifically named on the tenancy agreement. And yes, all means ALL tenants, not just people who may have born in a different country.

\n

Although this might sound a little scary, it’s really not – you automatically have the ‘right to rent’ if you have the right to live in the UK.

\n

This includes anyone with British or Irish citizenship, indefinite leave to remain (ILR), settled or pre-settled status under the EU settlement scheme, permission to be in the UK (on a work or student visa for example) or official refugee status or humanitarian protection.

\n

So how do you prove it? It’s really quite simple. Documents accepted range from a current or expired passport through to a certificate of registration or naturalisation, a UK birth certificate and driving licence.

\n

You’ll need to get an online ‘share code’ to pass the check if you have EU settled or pre-settled status, a biometric residence card or permit or an eVisa. Make sure you get a share code on GOV.UK and then give it to the landlord or agent along with your date of birth.

\n

They can then use these to quickly check your right to rent online and give you the peace of mind that every box has been ticked.

\n

Register with an agent

\n

Fed up with always just missing on great rentals? Another way to get ahead of the pack is to register with a lettings agent.

\n

One of the most basic reasons is that they will help make sure all your paperwork is in place even before you go to look at a property. This means the landlord will already know you are a good prospect and this can really speed things up when you find somewhere you like!

\n

More than that, you’ll receive a heads up on new suitable rentals even before they hit the big online portals, giving you the chance to be quick off the mark and get in there before the big rush. This can really be key to putting yourself ahead of the crowd.

\n

When there is so much competition for each available rental property these things can really make a difference to your chances of securing your ideal new home. When you find somewhere you’d like to live, be proactive and let the agent or landlord know straight away.

\n

Even in such a busy market we think that renting a new home should be as stress free as possible. So register with us as a tenant and let us be your property partner for life.

Buying a property as an investment is very different from when buy somewhere to live yourself.

\n

Of course, both things do have a lot in common because they are essentially about finding the right place and then making the purchase.

\n

However, when you want to rent out a property to make money there are so many things to consider that simply don’t apply when buying a home for yourself.

\n

In this article we’ll let you in on some of the secrets successful landlords use to find the right investment property and point you in the right direction so you can follow in their footsteps.

\n

Priorities

\n

As with most things involving buying any type of property, the first thing to do is identify your own priorities.

\n

If you were buying somewhere to live in yourself you would be thinking of how many bedrooms you’ll need, if an en-suite would make life easier or maybe how a home office could be a great addition to your home.

\n

When it comes to choosing the location, nearby schools might be high on the list, likewise access to shops or amenities. The exact opposite may even be true if your dream of a semi-rural getaway is your idea of new home heaven!

\n

These things all still apply when it comes to buying a property you intend to rent out, but often the conclusions you come to will be very different.

\n

Return On Investment

\n

If you’re a landlord already you’ll be familiar with the term ‘return on investment’, usually shortened to simply ROI. If this is the first time you’re dipping your toes into the world of owning property in the rental sector then it’s something that you quickly need to get to grips with.

\n

Essentially ROI is all about how much money you make in relation to how much you spend.

\n

Any type of financial investment you ever make will be done with the idea of getting more money back that the amount you put in.

\n

This could mean putting a lump sum into an ISA or similar long term ‘safe’ account with relatively low interest, or being more risky and buying stocks and shares in companies that might give you a much bigger ROI – but also run the risk of losing the lot!

\n

It all comes down to your own reasons for investing, as well as your character and ‘risk profile’.

\n

Capital Growth

\n

Being a landlord is a business like any other, so the idea is to turn a profit. However, there are different ways to do this and the ones you prioritise will come down to your own unique circumstances

\n

We all know that it’s great when you buy somewhere in an up and coming area where a few years later asking prices have soared. Likewise, a wrong choice could leave you with a property that falls into negative equity, with the mortgage ending up being bigger than the price you could sell for.

\n

So the amount that you pay for an investment property and the value it might have whenever you decide to sell are one big element in the decisions you make.

\n

If you’re in it for the long haul, it’s a relatively safe bet that no matter where you buy prices will go up over ten, fifteen or twenty years.

\n

However, if you’re looking at getting a return on your investment on a much shorter timescale, then you’ll be more interested in concentrating on achieving an income from high monthly rents than you are from the capital growth of a property’s value.

\n

Rents

\n

Even though the rental sector shows little expectation of significantly slowing down any time soon, if you want to get a tenant to pay rents at the top of the scale you’ll need to invest in the kind of property they want to live in.

\n

As well as being in a good location, this also means offering prestige style accommodation with all mod cons.

\n

However, that doesn’t mean you have to fit a 48 inch HD TV or luxury high end furniture. Whether you choose to let a property as furnished or unfurnished is yet another choice you have to make, at whatever level of the market you decide to invest in!

\n

Furnished/Unfurnished

\n

An ‘unfurnished’ rental might save you money on furniture, beds, dining tables and the rest but it will still involve an outlay. You’ll need to make sure that fixtures and fitting such as kitchen appliances, heating systems, flooring and window coverings are all in place and to certain standards.

\n

In contrast a fully furnished rental will essentially provide a ‘straight out of the box’ new home experience, meaning a tenant should expect to be able to move in, unpack bags and get on with enjoying their new home.

\n

This means a bed in each bedroom, seating in communal rooms and a much more detailed list of things like a TV, kettle, cutlery and crockery, lamps, coffee tables, bookcases and so on.

\n

The rent on unfurnished properties is expected to be lower than on a furnished property, so the choice you make as a landlord will have an effect on your ROI. It’s an early example of getting your priorities right and working out exactly what you want to do.

\n

Short Term / Long term

\n

As well as choosing an investment property based on how you want your ROI to span out over time, another short term / long term decision involves what type of tenant you want to have.

\n

Targeting the ideal person you’d like to rent your property raises some obvious questions – can they afford the rent? Will they look after the place? Will they get on with the neighbours?

\n

You’ll also have to decide whether you’d prefer a tenant who might be looking to put down roots and stay for a period stretching out over the years, perhaps a family with young children looking for stability in terms of attending local schools for instance.

\n

Or you might prefer to aim for a more regular turnover of tenants – perhaps investing in an area with a university and a never-ending supply of new students year after year.

\n

These choices all factor in to the type of property you should buy, the area, the furnished/unfurnished aspect – everything must come together in a unique way for each landlord.

\n

That’s quite a lot of food for thought isn’t it?
