We are over the moon to have been recognised with the world-renowned Investors in People accreditation.

In our industry, it’s the people that really make the difference. That’s why we firmly believe in supporting our staff to be the best they can be.

As a business, we have experienced considerable growth since our humble beginnings back in 2009. We now employ 20 staff over two branches and have exciting future plans to further expand our portfolio and services.

Our brilliant, friendly staff have a genuine passion for what they do. With ambitious growth plans ahead, it’s more important than ever for us to ensure we’re doing everything we can to support them now and in the future.

Investors In People is a globally recognised standard and we went through a very indepth assessment process.

The IIP Assessor looked at many facets of the business, from the our brand ethos and overall objectives, through to management, training practices and staff interviews. In fact, there are nine key indicators of high performance that we were measured against.

Throughout the assessment we demonstrated evidence to meet, and in many aspects exceeded, the minimum requirements of the Investors In People Standard and are delighted to announce that we have been officially awarded the Investors In People accreditation.

It has been awarded to HOP for how we run the business and our continual investment in the training, development and engagement of our highly valued team.

“It’s a real achievement to be recognised in this way. It means we have the necessary principles and practices in place to support our brilliant staff.” said MD, Luke Gidney

“Even more than that, it means that every single person is involved in supporting each other to make HOP a brilliant and effective place to work.”

Being accredited is a remarkable effort for any organisation. It places HOP in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people and stands us in good stead for growing the business in the years ahead.

We’ve pulled together some helpful resources from Public Health England for tenants who are living in shared accommodation.

Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) present increased risks from the virus as occupants are required to share amenities such as bathrooms, kitchens and also the common parts with other households.

With the arrival of winter and an increase in the number of cases of coronavirus (COVID-19), it is more important than ever that we all take steps to reduce the spread of infection in the community to save lives and support the NHS

Everyone has a part to play in the fight against coronavirus, so we urge you to review the information to help protect yourself and other people. We have made this information available in our Student Knowledge Bank and it will also be emailed to current student tenants.

Reducing the risk in your home

  • Regularly clean the bathroom and kitchen using household products like detergents and bleach.
  • Clean things people touch the most: taps, worktops, tables, backs of hard chairs, handles on doors/cupboards/kitchen appliances, light switches, handrails.
  • Phones will need to be wiped and not sprayed.
  • Do not shake dirty washing before putting it in the washing machine.
  • Do not invite or allow social visitors to enter your home, including friends and family.
  • Wash your hands and cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Ventilate indoor areas.
  • Click here to download a handy poster with all of the above key info.

 

What to do if you get symptoms

  • If you have any coronavirus symptoms you should stay at home for 10 days and those you live with should isolate for 14 days from the first day you felt poorly, even if they feel well.
  • You should book a test if you start to display symptoms call 119 or visit http://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
  • If your test is positive, continue to self-isolate for 10 days from first symptoms and 14 days for others in your household, if your test is negative you and the others in your household do not need to isolate any longer.
  • You also may be contacted and asked to self-isolate for 14 days if you have been in contact with someone outside your household who has tested positive. The rest of the household does not need to isolate unless you start to display symptoms or they have also been in contact.
  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital unless it is an emergency.
  • In an emergency, call 999 & inform the call handler about your potential exposure to Covid-19.

 

What to do if you test positive for Coronavirus

  • To stop the spread of the virus, it is advised that if you are positive, you should isolate in your current address, rather than moving households.
  • If your test shows you have coronavirus, you will be contacted by text, email or phone and will be asked to provide information about the people you have been close to recently.
  • Inform your university / employer and your letting agent
  • After 10 days if you still have a high temperature, you must stay home and away from people until you feel better.
  • After 10 days, if you only have a cough and/or loss of sense of taste or smell you don’t have to stay home and away from people any more.
  • Everyone else you share your house with must still stay home, because they might have caught the virus but not be showing symptoms yet.
  • They must stay at home for 14 days from the first day you felt poorly, even if they feel well.
  • Seek help if existing symptoms get worse (e.g. difficulty breathing) by calling NHS 111.
  • In an emergency, call 999 & inform the call handler about your potential exposure to COVID-19.
  • Click here to download a handy poster with all of the above key info.

 

What to do if someone in your household has symptoms or has tested positive

  • Tell people delivering things to your home to leave them outside.
  • Do not shake dirty washing before putting it in the washing machine.
  • Use a different bathroom if possible. If this is not possible, clean it each time after you use it.
  • Use separate towels and keep them in your own room.
  • Wipe all surfaces you have touched using strong household products (disinfectant).
  • Regularly clean the bathroom using household products.
  • If you share a kitchen, anyone with symptoms should use the kitchen after everyone else and should clean all surfaces afterwards.
  • Anyone with symptoms should eat in their own room.
  • Where possible, use a dishwasher. If this is not possible, use separate tea towels, crockery and cutlery and a separate sponge/ brush for washing.
  • Clean surfaces with household cleaner, that you often touch several times a day such as: door handles, handrails, remote controls, table tops

Staying safe during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

  • Download this useful booklet from Public Health England with guidance specifically for tenants in shared accommodation
  • Be aware, however, that additional national restrictions about meeting up have come into effect from 5th November 2020 https://www.gov.uk/guidance/new-national-restrictions-from-5-november
  • The booklet is a handy resource that helps provide guidance on how you and those you share a house with can stay safe within your home, including the steps you should take if someone tests positive for coronavirus or is displaying symptoms.
  • There is also guidance on support available if you or someone you live with has to isolate as well as details of services that can help during this time.

As we all face a second national lockdown from Thursday, 5th November, here’s a quick overview for what it means for our customers.

The Housing Secretary has confirmed that estate and letting agencies can continue to operate, and that people can still move house during the national lockdown period.

The property market will remain open,  but we’ll be following the latest advice, which means tightening up even further on our existing safety measures:

  • The HOP Branches in both Leeds and Pudsey will remain open to support all our customers but strictly by appointment only.
  • We are offering Online Viewings in the first instance to anyone wishing to view a sales or rental property.
  • Viewings and in-person property visits can take place, but in line with strict safety guidance.
  • Maintenance will continue as tradespeople are still allowed to enter your property to carry out works, following safety guidance.
  • We will continue to answer any queries you may have and are fully contactable by phone or email, in the usual way, although some of our staff may be working from home.
Please read our updated guidance below.

 

Updated Viewings Guidance

Online Viewings and Virtual Tours are to be prioritised in the first instance, so we can keep visits to a minimum and we will strictly follow the full safety guidance. We will only permit in-person viewings with customers that have confirmed a serious intent to move.

  • Customers should not book a viewing if anyone in their household is shielding, self-isolating or feeling unwell.
  • We will not attend any property where anyone in the household is self-isolating or symptomatic.
  • Viewings are restricted to 15 minutes.
  • No more than two people can attend a viewing. Children are not currently permitted to attend.
  • If the two viewers are from separate households, they will need to enter and view the property separately.
  • We will not be able to offer customers lifts to the property at present.
  • Face coverings will be worn by staff and customers throughout the viewing and social distancing measures will be adhered to.
  • Property Negotiators will be equipped with their own mask and hand sanitisers. Viewers should bring their own a mask and hand sanitiser to the appointment.
  • Hand sanitising will be carried out by all viewers and negotiators before entering a property and immediately after leaving every appointment.
  • Tenants or Vendors will need to vacate the property during the appointment to minimise contact and to maintain social distancing measures.
  • Prior to the viewing, we request that all internal doors and windows are be opened in order to minimise contact with hard surfaces and to ensure good ventilation.
  • After each viewing, the Tenant/Vendor should sanitise all door handles and other hard surfaces that may have been touched.

Maintenance

Where we are responsible for the management of your property, we’ll continue to arrange maintenance as required, ensuring that all our tradespeople are fully compliant with the latest safety advice and equipped with PPE. Tenants should log maintenance in the usual way at: hop-property.co.uk/report-a-repair/

  • We will be suspending our in-person Property Inspections during this period but will undertake Virtual Inspections wherever possible.
  • Neither Staff nor Contractors will attend any property where anyone in the household is self-isolating, symptomatic or shielding.
  • Throughout the appointment, social distancing of 2 meters will be adhered and Contractors will wear a mask throughout.
  • We request that handwashing facilities (ideally with separate or disposable towels for drying) are made available to us, however, Contractors will always be fully equipped with suitable hand sanitisers and/or protective gloves which can be used throughout the appointment.
  • Contractors will carry hand sanitizer, which will be used before entering a property and immediately after leaving every appointment.
  • If we are attending your property to carry out maintenance, you should ensure easy access to all the parts of the property they need to work in, and make efforts to minimise contact with the Contractor or Staff while they are at work, for example by staying in a different room.
  • You should not provide any refreshments to Contractors or Staff during an appointment.
  • After each appointment, the Tenant should sanitise all door handles and other hard surfaces that may have been touched.

Sales & Lettings Valuations

For convenience, and to minimise risk, we offer virtual valuations with our experts for those wishing to sell or let out their property. If you would like to book a Lettings or Sales Valuation, please click here. In instances where we undertake a face-to-face valuation, we will adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Customers should not book a valuation if anyone in the household is shielding, self-isolating or feeling unwell.
  • Our valuers will be wearing a mask throughout the appointment.
  • We request that handwashing facilities (ideally with separate or disposable towels for drying) are made available to us, however, our Valuers will always be fully equipped with suitable hand sanitisers and/or protective gloves which can be used throughout the appointment.
  • Throughout the valuation, social distancing of 2 meters will be adhered to at all times.
  • Much as we enjoy a cuppa when discussing your property, you should not provide refreshments.
  • When it comes to doing an inspection and taking notes for the floorplan, we politely request that customers vacate the property to minimise contact and to adhere to social distancing measures.
  • Prior to the appointment, we request that all internal doors and windows are be opened to minimise contact with hard surfaces and to ensure good ventilation.
  • If your property benefits from outside space, please open bi-fold or patio doors for us in advance for access and increased ventilation.

We hope that the above help to explain our new processes and offer reassurance that we are following Government guidance and doing our very best to maintain the safety of our customers and staff.

Should you have any queries, then please do ask when you are booking your appointment or if you are a Tenant, do not hesitate to give your Property Manager a call.

  • Then you can use our smart HOP Online Application to fill in all your details, upload the relevant docs and give us your Guarantor.
  • Once your Guarantor has completed their paperwork too and been through referencing, you’ll all be sent a final Tenancy Agreement to sign electronically.
  • Pay the remainder of your Deposit (which is then safely stored with the DPS) and the property is yours!

We’re beaming with pride to have been rated ‘exceptional’ in the Best Estate Agent Guide Awards 2021.

Both HOP Leeds and HOP Pudsey have been ranked in the top 5% of all UK Letting Agents in the category of Lettings. That means our branches are the very cream of the crop, as recognised in the the awards from EA Masters, which celebrate the best estate agents and letting agents across sales & lettings.

It’s our third year in a row winning such an accolade. Given the difficulty we have all faced this year, and in particular the property market, the news has put a huge smile on our faces.

As awards go, this is pretty much our favourite one to win because it’s awarded based on an assessment of the entire market as a whole. 25,000 estate agency branches are assessed and reviewed for their marketing, results and service, which includes looking at performance data from Rightmove and mystery shopping.

There’s no awards submission to make, we just are judged and rated on what the letting team does best day to day – letting properties to the tenants of Leeds with top notch customer service.

The event was held online this year and we were thrilled to be awarded an exceptional rating for both our branches.

The judges of the BEAG 2021 said:

HOP Leeds and HOP Pudsey branches showed an outstanding level of service and care towards prospective clients and we are delighted to award these superb branches with a score of “Exceptional”.

We aren’t in this business for the awards! But it’s always lovely to have such a positive recognition of the hard work every one of our team puts in, especially in a such a challenging year.

If you’re interested in having a look at some of the other awards and accreditations we have collected over the year, head to our awards page for more details.

With the weather drawing in, it’s more important than ever to be mindful of condensation that can lead to mould.

All sorts of everyday activity put moisture into the air around us. Cooking and cleaning can be the biggest culprits and the drops in temperatures lead to condensation. In the summertime, it’s easier to keep thing dry and ventilated, but in winter moisture can build up, which creates the ideal condition for mould.

What is mould anyway?

Mould is actually a type of fungus. It grows in moist environments where there is not much sunlight and can grow on all kinds of surfaces from fabrics to wood. Outside, it has an important job breaking down and decomposing materials, but inside it is an unwelcome guest. Mould reproduces via little airborne spores and can be tricky to get rid of once it takes hold. No one wants to live in a mouldy home, it’s unsightly, causes damage to whatever it grows on and can prove to be a health hazard, so prevention is key.

What causes damp?

Mould loves damp, so keeping your home dry is the key. But why would your home be damp? There are some common causes to watch out for:

  • Wet weather – the Leeds climate can be particularly rainy in the winter seasons, which naturally puts more humidity in the air
  • Drying wet clothes on radiator, cooking and showering all add water to the air in the house
  • Cold surfaces collect condensation from the air which can create areas of damp – a quick wipe with an absorbent cloth wherever you see condensation collecting helps to get rid of the source of moisture
  • Sometimes damp is caused by a structural or repair issue e.g. rising damp or blocked guttering – which you would need to let your agent or landlord know about so they could look into it

How to prevent mould and damp in your home.

Keeping on top of the moisture in your home is the key to combatting mould. That means keeping your property well ventilated to avoid the build up of condensation. Here are a few tips to help you reduce the amount of condensation in your home:

  1. Open your windows daily to allow moist air to escape – even in the winter months. It’s good to get in the habit of opening your bedroom windows for 5-10 minutes each day when you get up to keep things fresh and ventilated
  2. Use extractor fans and open windows when using the kitchen or bathroom
  3. When cooking or showering, close the doors to stop the wet steam going into other rooms
  4. It’s a simple one, but putting lids on your pans when cooking is an easy way of reducing moisture in the air
  5. When you pop the kettle on for a brew, only boil the amount of water you need. Not only is it better for energy consumption but reduces the amount of steam (i.e. water) being put into the air
  6. Leave a small gap between walls and furniture (especially when it’s a cold wall) so the air can flow around it
  7. Similarly, try to keep cupboards or storage areas uncluttered, so that air can circulate around items in cupboards etc
  8. It’s best to dry clothes outside but if you can’t, make sure it’s done in a well-ventilated room with an open window
  9. If you’ve got a tumble dryer with a vent pipe, make sure it runs outside your property (e.g. through a window)
  10. Make sure airways are not blocked, such as chimneys and air bricks
  11. Keep heating levels at a constant temperature, especially in the winter
  12. Use an absorbent cloth to dry any condensation or moisture when you see it e.g. around the bath or shower after use. This has the added bonus of also making your bathroom easier to clean too!
  13. Consider a dehumidifier to help draw moisture out of the air
  14. Act quickly! If you see signs of damp or mould, don’t ignore it.

While there can be structural reasons for damp, the vast majority of mould issues are caused by tenants not keeping their property properly ventilated. These simple tips will help you keep your home in top condition.

Since lockdown has eased, the property market in Leeds has well and truly sprung back in to life.

Due to a potent combination of key factors the market is now incredibly buoyant and we’re seeing an extraordinary appetite for both rental and sales properties across Leeds. In this blog, we take a quick look at the reasons why.

Pent Up Demand

During lockdown, everything was put on hold – including the property market. Many people planning to buy, sell, rent or move had their plans suddenly put on ice. For a good three months everything stood still, but as restrictions eased, people were keen to move forward with their original plans… and quickly! As such, we are dealing with a surge in enquires from pent up demand.

Time to Think

In addition to all those planning to move anyway, the experience of lockdown has had a further knock-on effect. The enforced time to ‘pause’ from the regular day to day meant people had time to take stock and reflect on what is important to them in life and in a home. Working from home, or having to manage the kids 24/7,  has made people re-prioritise and re-evaluate their living situations. Perhaps it’s time for a home office, a bigger garden or simply time to ‘seize the day’ and find the forever home.

Changes in Circumstances

Lockdown brought different challenges for everyone including changes in work situations and relationship status. While it was reported that divorce enquiries were up by 40% during lockdown, on the flip side there have been many more engagements too! Whether downsizing, moving out or moving in, these changes are a significant contributing factor to the market demand as people move on.

Staying Home

Traditionally, the summer months are a quiet period for the property market, while people jet off abroad on their holidays. This year, however, things are completely different and people have ‘staycationed’ at a record rate. We’ve seen in influx of people looking for properties through what would typically be a very quiet time, and this demand shows no immediate sign of abating. Instead of sunning themselves on a beach holiday, more and more people are getting stuck into DIY projects, to get their homes in tip top shape ready to sell.

Student Market

Leeds is home to thousands of students and has a huge student lettings market. After a period of concern, it is reassuring to know that all of the Leeds universities will resume teaching as planned this month. Usually the HMO market peaks by Easter, but this year many students held back from signing for their 2020 student property as uncertainty loomed over whether the universities would be able to operate on campus. The rental market is now running full steam ahead as students catch up on securing their homes for the next academic year.

Stamp Duty Holiday

The introduction of the Stamp Duty Holiday was a definitive move by the Government to kick start the property market after lockdown and it certainly seems to be working. With 89% of sales transactions no longer subject to stamp duty, there is a window of opportunity until 31 March 2021 for Investors and Buyers to take advantage of a reduced cost of moving.

Sales Market

We have just launched our residential sales arm and we’re witnessing very high demand for family homes in the surrounding suburbs of Horsforth, Rodley, Farsley, Calverley, Stanningley, Pudsey, Rawdon and Apperley Bridge. In addition, HMO properties – particularly in the key student areas – are proving very popular with  our landlords and investors looking to strengthen their portfolio.

Thinking of Selling?

Now is a strategic time to sell while demand is high and stock levels are so low. Our high-quality marketing and fresh approach to sales will help your property reach the right people and stand out from the crowd. Contact our Sales Team to book in a Market Appraisal of your property and we can talk you best options for you.

HOP has been appointed to manage and market a brand new £12.5m student accommodation scheme, Union, which is due to complete later this year.

Currently being developed by Burley Place Ltd (BPL) with Tolent as principle contractor, this luxury student apartment is quickly taking shape just across the road from our Leeds office.

We’ve been working closely with the team at BPL, consulting on every aspect of Union from the specification and finishes to the branding, to bring this state-of-the-art offering to the student market.

The development will provide 87 luxury, high spec studio apartments and a host of incredible on-site amenities including concierge, gym, cinema room, 24/7 security, parking and even smart laundry service. Every detail has been carefully considered to create the ultimate student home.

Exclusively marketed by HOP, these impressive apartments are perfectly located for students attending Leeds University, Leeds City College and Leeds Beckett and are just a short walk from Leeds city centre.

The set up and ongoing operation of Union is handled by the HOP Block Management Team, led by Director, Terry Adams.  By handling the marketing, as well as the block management, we are able to deliver a seamless service, all under one roof.

This is the first opportunity for us to really demonstrate what we can do as HOP.

By offering an integrated approach, we are able to deliver a holistic property service at every stage of the development, from conception to full occupation.

– Luke Gidney, MD of HOP
