We’ve led the market for over 24 years in West Cumbria, have an award wining track record and strong reputation, so you know you can trust us with your property.  We completely understand that landlords join the world of lettings for very different reasons and with this in mind, our services match the differing priorities you have… and if they don’t, our experienced team will talk to you about how we can fit the service to your unique needs.

Our Landlord Services

We have a comprehensive service available for every landlord, no matter where on the investor journey they are.  We fully understand that someone new to property investing, or finding themselves here by accident, may need far more hand-holding than someone who has been a landlord for numerous years, or who has a large portfolio of rental property.  That said, we spend a lot of time ensuring we are completely up to date with everything happening in the lettings market, that we are qualified, continue our professional development and know the law inside out, so that we can always be counted on to make sure you are compliant at all times.
