We understand that not all landlords are the same and that you may require very different services depending on the number of properties you own and your personal circumstances. Unlike most agents we offer a number of carefully tailored packages to meet these varying requirements; all are designed and delivered with our core values of providing outstanding service at affordable prices. We always operate on a no let no fee basis, and are happy to discuss different arrangements to meet your needs.

We offer a ‘Let Only Service’

  • We will visit your property and provide a free of charge valuation with no obligation.
  • We can provide legal advice on the legislation surrounding letting your property.
  • We will market your properties to our extensive applicant list and via our website, Rightmove and a number of other high profile property portals.
  • We always carry out accompanied viewings at times that are suitable for prospective tenants.
  • We use a market leader in tenant background checks to make sure we have secured the right tenant for your property.
  • We produce a detailed photographed inventory, protecting both you and the tenant in the case of a dispute at the end of the tenancy.
  • We will produce an assured short-hold tenancy agreement and include any special terms that you wish to add.
  • We will collect a deposit and the initial rent and forward the funds to you immediately. We will also set up payment for the duration of the tenancy.
  • Finally we will check-in the tenant and handover the keys, making the process as hassle free for you as possible.
  • We work on a ‘no let, no fee basis’ so you will never have to pay anything until we have found a suitable tenant.
  • Ask about our rent Guarentee facility.

Our ‘Full Management Service’ is designed to take all the stress out of being a landlord. It encompasses all the elements of the ‘Let Only Service’ as well as the following features:

  • You will never receive a phone call from a tenant. All tenant enquiries come straight to us, we deal with all day-to-day issues.
  • We can advise on the safety regulations that your property must comply with and arrange for Gas, Electrical and Energy certification.
  • We will collect rent payments and forward them to you immediately. By carefully monitoring rent payments we are able to investigate late payments straight away and can relentlessly pursue rent arrears.
  • We will arrange for any maintenance and repairs up to a previously agreed value and will consult you, and provide quotes for any more serious work.
  • We will hold a spare set of keys to allow maintenance contractors access and to provide replacements if your tenants lose their keys.
  • We will inspect your property on a quarterly basis, allowing us to carefully monitor its’ condition, provide you with a report and take action where necessary.
  • We will inspect your property at the end of a tenancy against the inventory created at the start and provide advice on any appropriate deposit deductions.
