Our Team specialises in the management of properties and our service include everything as detailed in the full Management Service. You will also get the benefit of using an Agent who makes it their business to always be aware of changes in legislation that may affect you, thus ensuring that you are always up to date with such requirements.

No two properties are alike and a personal inspection is vital in order that we can advise you, the client, on the rental value and letting potential of your property. This also enables us to speak to prospective tenants knowledgeably and confidently.

We advertise in local papers as well as on our website and Rightmove. To Let boards are also used.

For security, as well as professional reasons, we always accompany potential tenants around your property.

We use a professional referencing company who will obtain employment, landlord and character references, along with a credit report.

The rent is collected monthly in advance and we always hold a deposit of at least one and a half times the monthly rent as security against dilapidations. We are members of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme for Regulated Agents. The TDS has been developed to ensure that the deposits we hold are protected and that disputes are resolved swiftly and impartially.

A detailed list of fixtures and furnishings is drawn up and the condition accurately recorded. This includes a full set of colour photographs. This is then agreed with the tenants.

We visit your property every three to six months to ensure that it is being properly cared for and a report is then sent to you. At the end of the tenancy we carry out a final inspection with the tenants.

We deal with all matters concerning rent collection and also serve relevant letters and notices, should the rent be late or not forthcoming.

We account to clients on a monthly basis and can pay monies direct to clients via the Bank Automated Credit System.

We act as introducers to Homelet insurance who offer various quotes for buildings, contents and rent warranty insurances.
