Hi,
I'm new to the forum. I'm very interested in acquiring between two and five 1 and 2 bedroom flats in Surbiton.

I run a professional corporate housing company and have several long stay tenants seeking flats in St Mary's Road, Surbiton.
They'll be professionally cleaned weekly and maintained to the highest standards.

I'd like to be able to secure a 3 year leases. I'm willing to pay slightly above the market rate.

Many thanks
Chris

They're people who're being relocated by their companies to the area.

Not sure of your timing but they are about to build a load of flat where the Total Petrol station used to be in Surbiton - I got some info posted through my door last week.  If you're interested I'll find it and post the name of the company.  Have all the other new build flats been sold? - they are all close to St.Mary's road

Long term, as in 6-12 months but paid for by me continuously.

Thanks for the offer! Yes the name of the company building flats on the petrol station site would be really handy, thanks!

What are you considering slightly above market rate? Can you respond with absolute figures, rather than a percentage, please?

Thanks a lot for the link!

The reason I'm willing to pay slightly above market rate is that it's tough to convince people to rent to the corporate market, so rather than spend weeks fruitlessly trying to convince people that it's a great proposition, I thought I might offer to pay 1% above market rate to show that I'm serious and that's it's a professional proposition.

I already operate 18 apartments in another area and have 10 years' experience in this sector.

Apologies for not responding with absolute figures. It's because I don't know what offers might be made, so I can only state percentages.

1%?

So, for every 1,000 rent you'll bump it up by 10?

You didn't mean 10%, did you?
