Northwood Sheffield are celebrating signing their 300th landlord after just five years of trading.

Branch Director Christopher Cooke, pictured here with the team, puts reaching this significant milestone in such a short space of time down to Northwood’s unique guaranteed rental income scheme and their innovative approach to the lettings market.

Launched over 17 years ago, this popular service now has thousands of landlords enjoying its risk-free benefits.

We caught up with the 300th landlord, Mr Shaun Taylor to see what he had to say about the Platinum Scheme.

He said: “My girlfriend and I decided to move in together and at first I thought about selling, but under the current climate this was just not a viable option. A friend of mine told me about the Northwood Platinum Scheme and at first I was somewhat sceptical, but I thought I had nothing to lose so gave them a call.

“How it works is actually very simple: Northwood value your property and agree an annual fee that’s regardless of whether it’s empty or if the tenant does not pay.

“Once I had weighed this up against the risk of having to find additional funds to cover another mortgage it was a ‘no brainer’. Even better, there were no additional set-up charges or any commission to pay, no stipulation to furnish the property and no hidden charges to be deducted. They also guaranteed to start paying rent to me within 25 days or sooner if they found a tenant. The Platinum Scheme certainly gives me one less thing to worry about!”

Northwood, one of the largest and fastest-growing lettings businesses in the UK, has been operating for 17 years and has 77 offices across the country. Each Northwood office is locally owned and operated by highly-trained professionals who have the dedication, motivation and business credentials to understand how quality customer service and results can be delivered.

Northwood’s unique Platinum Guaranteed Rental Income Scheme, which takes away the risk of letting a property, has proved extremely popular with landlords not just in Sheffield but across Northwood’s other local offices in Doncaster, Leeds, York, Hull, Nottingham and Derby.

The scheme enables Northwood to guarantee landlords their rent for 52 weeks of the year even if the property is vacant or if the tenant fails to pay. There are now more than 10,000 landlords across the UK enjoying the benefits of this unique scheme.

Whilst the Platinum Scheme provides total security, a regular income and no-hassle management, Northwood Sheffield also offer a choice of traditional property management services for landlords who prefer a more hands-on approach and are prepared to take on some risks themselves.
