We work with landlords based all over the world including Switzerland, Germany, Australia, South Africa … the list could go on. If you’re looking to invest from overseas then you’re in good hands. We can help you through every step of the process, here’s how:

Assistance to help invest in the right property

Our team recognise that landlords have different reasons for investing in property and we can help you source the right investment at a price to suit your budget.

The UK property market is well-known for being stable even in uncertain times and that’s particularly true for Hull. It’s a hotspot for affordable property prices in the UK and it’s the area where we specialise. Our local knowledge can assist you in making informed investment decisions.

You’ll be pleased to know that our approachable team offer many different communication methods which means there’s a contact option to suit all timezones. We can advise you on everything from taxes to lettable standards and investment hotspots, answering any questions you might have about the Hull property market.

Finding a tenant

If a hands-off approach is what you’re after then you’ve come to the right place. We’ll take care of finding a tenant for you, taking the stress off your shoulders.

We have a thorough tenant application process and carry out detailed referencing. Once we have a shortlist of appropriate applications, we’ll condense them and send you through short profiles to select from with all the key information. We make this process as simple and straightforward as possible for landlords to minimise the amount of work from your end.

Once you’ve decided which tenant you think would be the best fit, we’ll deal with the keys and move them into your property as soon as possible to minimise any void periods.

Our dedicated works team can maintain your property

We have an in-house maintenance team to carry out works on the properties we manage. Having our own team means that we can be responsive and turn jobs around quickly and efficiently.

You can rest assured that you’ll be fairly charged by our team of competent tradespeople who’ll maintain your property and make sure your tenant experiences as little upheaval as possible throughout the tenancy.

If there’s an issue with your property, we’ll manage the job for you and only communicate with you to arrange and approve the quotation.

Don’t just take our word for it:

We’re a 5 star rated Hull letting agent, here’s what just a couple of the landlords we work with have to say:

“A friend of mine recommended Ultra Lets to take care of my property in Hull and I'm glad I did. The whole team have given me a really personal service so far and they are extremely knowledgeable about the local area. They are approachable and dynamic and I feel as though I get good value for my management fee.” - Chris John

“I have worked with Spencer since Ultra Lets was established in 2009. Since then I have travelled up to Hull from my home in Surrey to meet with Spencer several times a year. I have found all of his advice to be genuine and useful not just when it comes to which properties to buy but also when decided what standard to refurbish our properties to. I have bought many properties which Ultra Lets are managing. We have typically purchased high yield investments with ‘high risk' tenants which can often be difficult to manage but the team deal with them very professionally. It’s good to know I can always pick up the phone a speak to someone reliable who is on the ground in Hull. Keep up the good work.” - Mannan Abdul

“I’m an overseas landlord and recently switched over to Ultra Lets after having been with my previous letting agents for 8 years. I had become increasingly concerned about my previous agents due to allegations of poor customer service, poor maintenance and excessive fees. After reading favourable reviews about Ultra Lets, I approached them for advice regarding changing over. They provided honest and useful advice with no obligations to switch unless I was absolutely happy to do so. At no time did I feel like I was being forced to sign up or do anything I wasn’t comfortable with. It took me several weeks before I was sure I was ready, however when I did make my decision Ultra Lets took care of everything. My mind was put at ease by the team with regular feedback and updates. Despite some obvious attempts to frustrate the process by my previous agents, the Ultra Lets team remained calm and professional throughout. They went to my old agent and collected all the necessary documents as well as meeting with the tenants keeping them informed of what was happening. The switch could have been quite stressful but Ultra Lets made sure it all went smoothly.”  - Thomas McAulay
