Breathe new life into your property with a complete renovation.

Our team of expert builders will take on any job big or small.

At John Howard we work solely on behalf of our buy-to-let investment clients to provide objective advice on their property investments.

John Howard Property service is tailored to the needs of landlords who wish to either start or expand existing property portfolios but lack the time, experience or inclination to commit to researching the market.

With a high degree of local knowledge combined with in-depth expertise, we can recommend investment opportunities. We have close professional relationships with local developers and landlords, allowing us to identify suitable properties.

In addition to our knowledge of the market, John Howard Property is also able to ensure that our clients have access to the best solicitors, surveyors, mortgage brokers, and other professionals. We can offer expert guidance on how the property can be best prepared for the Southend-on-Sea lettings market.

Our Investment Process:

  • Consultation – Initial meeting to define the client’s requirements, budget, the reason for investing, and ways to exploit a property

  • Identification – Identifying the best possible opportunities available in Southend-on-Sea and making clear recommendations, including advice on how best to prepare the property for letting.

  • Viewings – A member of JH staff will arrange the viewings and accompany you to the property.

  • Purchase facilitation – We will introduce you to other professionals as required to ensure swift exchange and completion.

  • Design & Refurbishment – Advising on and project managing the preparation of the property for rental.

  • Lettings & Property Management – Initial marketing and on-going property management to ensure the property realises its potential.

  • Fees – The initial consultation is free of charge but any purchase made is subject to a JH Living acquisition fee based on a percentage of the purchase price and becomes due on exchange of contracts.
