Landlords

If you are looking to rent out your property please see below for further information on the advice and support we can offer.

We tailor the service we provide depending on your needs, ranging from whether you are looking for us to find you a tenant up to a full property management package.

For our Standard Letting Service:

After an initial free appraisal of your property, we write with our recommendations for letting your property including advice as to what rental you could expect achieve, our marketing campaign and, if relevant, guidance on how best to prepare your home for the letting market. 

Upon confirmation of instructions we prepare letting particulars and list your property on our website as well as Rightmove, the most visited portal in the property market.  We also email details to all suitable tenants on our database.

We arrange and accompany all viewings and negotiate offers from potential tenants. Upon acceptance by you of an offer we carry out relevant references and credit checks on the prospective tenant.  We take out two character references, a financial/bank reference, a credit check on each applicant and a previous landlord’s reference if applicable.
