View our reviews

We have been trying to purchase investment property in Hull. With luck, one agent recommended Spencer of Ultra Lets when we enquired about letting agents. Spencer has and still is, devoting a huge amount of time in our quest. One bought and another to go so far. We do not know Hull and without Spencer's guidance could well have invested in the wrong property in the wrong area. Any questions we have raised have been responded to very promptly and frankly. A thoroughly pleasant experience. Spencer also has some great contacts who have assisted in providing quotes for re-roofing, new pvc doors and internal furnishing and building works. What a package!

I have tried many managing agents in Hull. Ultra lets are by far the best and I have been very impressed by their service. I have been a client for several years now. They are always helpful, professional, responsive and efficient. Whether you are buying, selling or letting, I would not hesitate to recommended them highly. Keep up the great work!

Ann-Marie Samuel

A really excellent service provided by all members of staff working from there. They managed my property for over 5 years, with issues resolved effectively and helping me along the way with, especially as I'm based in Birmingham. Never felt the need that I had to travel up to Hull. Thank you once again team Ultralet

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 though I get good value for my management fee. Long may it continue!

The team at Ultra lets provide an excellent service. Compared to the previous lettings agent I was using they are a breath of fresh air. Easy to contact, very thorough and prompt. Highly recommended.

I have just received the Rolls Royce standard of service from Ultralets when I used their "find a tenant" option. - the team have delivered a comprehensive and professional service and their attention to detail has been outstanding, especially from JG. Many thanks to all the team and look forward to working with you again.

I moved from London to Hull recently. Alice was dealing with me, trying to find a suitable property. She is lovely and helpful. Highly recommend the agency. :)

Anita Anica

Aimee was absolutely fantastic from start to finish! Would definitely recommend her and Ultralets to everyone who’s thinking of renting. Very fast professional and efficient. Couldn’t of asked for anything more from her. She is an absolute asset to your company. It was like talking to a friend she is so warm and welcoming. Just what I needed as I’m new to the area.

Diana Lee

The service is extremely efficient and they are always on hand to help in an emmergency. My tenant had a crisis over the weekend and Spencer was right on hand to facilitate a resolution. Payments are made on time. In summary a reliable service.

Dawn Noel

As a landlord who needs to let my former home in Hull, and lives 6 hours drive away I can say that Ultralets have been excellent at all aspects of managing the house; promptly finding reliable tenants, inventory checks and maintenance inspections, and organising any repairs with contractors as needed. Communication is prompt and clear, and there appears to be very good communication within the business - many thanks to Jo

Full management VS Let only

Landlords utilise our service in different ways. For some, they just need a tenant finding and the initial paperwork preparing. Others prefer us to deal with everything on their behalf so they can distance themselves from the day to day handling of their tenancies.

Frequently asked questions

  • How quickly will you let my property?

    A question we get regularly but a difficult question to answer accurately. This depends on the market demand, location of your property, rental asking price and condition. We aim to let every property within 3 weeks of listing it.

  • Why should I use a letting agent to manage my property?

    Of course you can manage your own property but using a good letting agent represents excellent value for money. Having access to a team of professionals who can collect your rents, be your main contact with your tenant, keep your property occupied and well maintained and keep you abreast of the incoming legislation in our industry is extremely important. Not to mention it frees you up to focus on doing what you want to do. It's also worth noting that your management fees are a tax-deductible expense.

  • If my property needs some work before it is ready for the market can Ultralets arrange this for me?

    Before listing any property we carry out an inspection to make sure that the property is up to the required legal safety standards and advise on any necessary work. We also make recommendations for any improvements we think you could make to achieve a higher rent or attract a better tenant. Our team can arrange and carry out any required work prior to letting. 

  • What accreditations do Ultralets have?

    We are ARLA Regulated. This means we uphold the highest industry standards. We have our client account audited annually and we abide by a strict code of practice. Even if you don’t use us to manage your property we'd recommend using an agent that is ARLA regulated.

  • If my tenant reports a repair issue how do you deal with it?

    As soon as a repair is reported through our online reporting system we send it on to you via email for review. At this point, you can either carry out the repair yourself, instruct your own contractor, or pass the job back to us to be sorted by our in-house team.

  • What steps do you take to find the right tenant for my property?

    All applications go through a rigorous vetting process which includes referencing their current landlord, place of work and providing proof of payment of rent at their current address.

  • Will I ever hear from my tenant directly?

    No, there are no circumstances in which we will pass any of your personal details on to your tenants. Unless we are specifically requested to do so, by you, in writing. You will always hear from a member of our team if there is something to discuss relating to your property.

  • What happens if the tenant reports an emergency issue at my property out of hours?

    Ultralets have two WhatsApp emergency numbers which we encourage tenants to send a message to if they have an out of hours emergency. We also have a 24/7 Monitored mobile number for really urgent issues that tenants are made aware of and are on our contact us page.

  • If I want Ultralets to take over the management of my property from another agent how involved do I need to be in the process?

    It’s a really hands-off process. All we need from you is our terms of business signed and returned. You will need to give the required notice to your current agent but once they are notified we can arrange to collect all certification, tenancy agreements, tenant contact information and keys. At that point, we will make contact with your tenants and make them aware of the switch.

  • If a tenant damages my property mid way through their tenancy and refuses to pay for the essential repair what recourse do I have?

    Let’s say a window is damaged during a tenancy and we have sufficient evidence to suggest this was done by a tenant. We would carry out the repair as normal, you as the landlord would pay for it and the invoiced amount will be contested at the end of the tenancy and deducted from the deposit. In most cases though, the tenant will offer to pay for it there and then.

  • If I'm looking to buy another investment property can Ultralets help me with that?

    Between us our team has a huge amount of experience in dealing with letting houses, understanding the types of tenants that rent in certain areas and understanding the required standard of work to get the best, hassle free, tenants. If we manage your property we are on hand to help you expand your portfolio.

  • If I'm dissatisfied with the service I have received from Ultralets who do I contact?

    If you find that you are unhappy with anything the Ultralets team have done for you we ask that you firstly detail your complaint in an email to spencer@ultralets.co.uk. If you are still unhappy with any offered solutions to the issue we will refer you to the property ombudsman (TPOS).

  • How will my rental income be paid to me and when will I receive my statement?

    At the start of every year, we send over a summary of the exact dates every month in which you will receive your rent money. On this day you will also receive your statement outlining your incoming rents, the date you tenant is paid to and any management fee and works deductions.

  • What are the all the charges to tenants and landlords when working with Ultralets?

    Every agent should publish a schedule of their charges to tenants and landlords by law. Read ours here.

  • Property maintenance

    Keeping your property let requires effective and responsive property maintenance. At Ultralets our works team are employed directly by us. That means no costly call outs, no third party contractors and when there's a really urgent issue at your property we can make sure it is dealt with quickly.

    Empty properties are expensive

    We understand that when your investment is vacant, bringing it up to the required standard in a timely manner is extremely important. Similarly, when a tenant is in place and they have a repair query, we need to make sure we act as swiftly as we can to put it right. We have total control of the whereabouts of our skilled tradespeople which allows us to prioritise jobs as we see fit. Tenants have 24/7 access to our reporting system 'FixFlo' and emergency contact numbers.

    High-quality workmanship 

    Our in house works team are competent in plumbing, joinery, decorating, kitchens and bathrooms refits. We outsource flooring, gas and electrical works to tried and tested contractors. Any work carried out on your property will always be approved by the landlord prior to starting the job and labour is guaranteed for 6 months after completion.

    Keeping a proper paper trail

    We operate an online tool for tenants to report repairs which leaves a strong paper trail giving landlords 24/7 access to archived reports from tenants, invoices and receipts from all works carried out at their property. 

    Giving a property a complete overhaul 

    When we carry out a full refurbishment at a property we provide an itemised quote at the outset which must be approved in writing by that landlord. Your quote will include an estimated completion date for the work.

    Some landlords prefer to handle things themselves

    Some landlords prefer to handle their own repairs, this isn't a problem. We can forward the information about the required work directly to you. As a responsible managing agent, we have an obligation to the tenant that the work should be carried out in a reasonable timeframe and safely. We will maintain regular contact with the landlord until the repair is satisfied.
