Landlords Info

As a landlord, it is paramount that you work with a letting and estate agent you can trust. If you have a property to let, our objective will be focused on maximising your rental yields whilst minimising any rental voids.

We want you to know that we take great pride in looking after your property whether this means the day to day care, maintenance and regular inspections that our “fully managed” service offers or finding you suitable tenants for you to manage.

We offer a free no obligation Market Appraisal together with advice on presentation on how to maximise your property’s rental ability, with an in-depth marketing package to make sure your property can be found by all prospective tenants. This is via some of the UK’s leading property websites such as Rightmove, Findaproperty and Primelocation.

If you find you do not have the time to dedicate to managing your property then this is the service for you. We will find suitable tenants, look after your home 24hrs a day, carry out regular inspections and deal with any issues as they arise immediately, keeping you informed at all times.

We will find and reference potential tenants for you, prepare all legal documents, collect initial rent and deposits and lodge this with a recognised deposit protection scheme. We will then hand the property back to you once the tenants have moved in for you to manage.

Visiting you at your property, and providing a rental valuation and any other advice which you may require about letting your property.
Advising you on compliance with the various safety regulations.
Locating suitable tenants. Your property will be advertised if necessary, however we have excellent contacts with various company and other establishment personnel departments, and furthermore usually have tenants waiting.

Accompanying tenant applicants to view the property.
Obtaining and evaluating references and credit checks.

Preparing a suitable tenancy agreement and arranging signature by the tenant.
Collecting and holding as stakeholders a deposit (bond) from the tenant.

Supervising the transfer of gas, electricity and council tax accounts into the tenant’s name.

Receiving rental payments monthly in advance, and paying you promptly, together with a detailed statement from our computerised management systems.

If required paying regular outgoings for you from rental payments.
Inspecting the property periodically, and reporting any problems to you.
Arranging any necessary repairs or maintenance, first liaising with you in the case of larger works.

Keeping in touch with the tenant on a routine basis, and arranging renewals of the agreement as necessary.

Checking tenants out as required, reletting and continuing the process with the minimum of vacant periods to ensure that you receive the optimum return from your property.

Our initial letting and advertising charge is just £ 0.00, with a one off setup fee of £99.95 plus VAT, and our ongoing management commission is only 6% of monthly rental payments. We make an admin charge of £44.95 for each renewal of an existing agreement. Remember, YOU are the priority.
