Value for you

Your property, our priority

We know that your property is important to you and we take that responsibility seriously. We make your property our priority, and aim for a lasting relationship with you. We feel we also need to build a good relationship with your tenant. If a tenant is happy in the property and feels that their needs have been addressed, they are much more likely to stay on for a further period avoiding costly voids. Having this relationship also helps at difficult moments.

An holistic approach

It is important that the person looking after your property understands your requirements, the tenant’s expectations and knows the property inside and out. We operate an holistic approach, meaning that our team works closely together on all aspects of your property and are trained and qualified for both lettings and property management. They will advertise it, carry out viewings, complete all the paperwork and manage the property throughout the tenancy. Nothing slipping between the cracks, no passing the buck, no mistakes due to ignorance of your needs.

Compliance

The world of lettings grows ever more complex with an increase in legislation targeting landlords. We will guide you through this, making sure your letting has everything in place that is required (including gas safety certificates, EPCs, smoke and CO alarms, deposit protection, service of pre-tenancy information, compliant tenancy agreements, and Right to Rent checks). We will also let you know about any recommended checks that are relevant to your property such as electrical safety tests and legionella checks so that you can make an informed decision about risks involved in letting. Our news page provides more insights into upcoming developments and keeps you up-to-date with the evolving lettings environment.

Client Money Protection is a scheme (mandatory for all agents from April 2019) which reimburses landlords, tenants and other clients if an agent were to misappropriate their rent, deposit or other client funds. Our Client Money Protection (Client Money Protection – Certificate) is provided by Propertymark. Further information can be found here.

Mandatory for all agents from April 2019 the scheme reimburses landlords, tenants and other clients should an agent misappropriate their rent, deposit or other client funds.

Fees

We know that your bottom line is important to you so we charge competitive fees. We believe we provide added value at sensible rates. Our property management service is priced at 8% (including VAT) of the rent for your property and covers:
