Landlords Information

We provide our clients with three different packages to cater for their property management needs: our Advertising Only (Bronze) package, our Tenant Find (Silver) package and our Fully Managed (Gold) package.

Many clients do not wish to be involved in the day to day management of their property because while many tenant queries or requests can be small, they can be time consuming: for this reason many choose our Gold Package.

When we carry out an appraisal at your property, we will outline exactly what is included in our Bronze, Silver and Gold Packages, so you can decide.

FAQ

What is a Long Term Let?

These are 'Short Assured' tenancies, no less than 6 months in duration, or company lets. They are best suited to professionals, students, families or companies. Prices quoted for Long Term lets represent the monthly rental and do not include council tax or utilities (which are transferred into the tenant's name).

What is the deposit for a Long Term let?

We would suggest a month and a half’s deposit for all our properties at the discretion of the Landlord. A pet deposit may also be requested.

How do I receive my rent?

When the tenant pays their first months rent this will be forward to the landlord 7 days after the lease date by BACS payment to a bank account of the landlords choice together with a financial statement forwarded by email.
