Letting & Rent Management
This service is suitable for landlords who do not wish to be involved in the day-to-day
management of their property portfolio. We will manage the tenancy from start to finish.
We will find a suitable tenant for your property - who will have to pass our stringent vetting procedures prior to passing to you their details for approval. We will organise all the necessary paperwork including deposit registration and Tenancy Agreements.
In addition we will prepare an initial inventory/schedule of condition*, manage the tenancy, receive rent, regularly check the upkeep of the property, arrange for any necessary maintenance to be carried out on your behalf and carry out a final inspection at the end of the tenancy with the outgoing tenants. We will deal with all end of tenancy deposit disputes and liaise directly with the deposit scheme provider.

We can then arbitrate directly with your Tenants, on your behalf, on any issues that may arise at the end of the Tenancy and follow this if necessary via the scheme provider.
