  • We’ll market your property with; photographs, floorplans, advertising board, online marketing on Rightmove and Zoopla plus marketing in branch.
  • Find the best tenant for your property and carry out accompanied viewings, reference checks and drawing up the tenancy agreement.
  • Help you meet your legal requirements and take care of the bond through the Deposit Protection Scheme.
  • We’ll take the hassle out of rent collection by setting up a standing order form with the tenant for monthly payments. And, we’ll also chase, receipt and forward you your rent.
  • All the communication from tenants will come to our property management team – not you. This means we can deal with queries, questions and issues quickly.
  • Sort any maintenance issues using our trusted contractors.
  • Inspect your property regularly throughout the tenancy.

Things to remember

Don’t forget to get your gas certificate every 12 months – we can arrange this for you, and let you know when it needs renewing.

An energy performance certificate (EPC) is a legal requirement for marketing your property – we can help you with this.

Having an inventory of the condition of your property and item within, is essential in case there is a bond dispute. We are able to help you collate an in-depth inventory including photographs.
