Perhaps you’ve entered the market not necessarily through choice but rather through circumstance. May that be through a job relocation, separation or even death. Surprisingly, accidental landlords make up a large number of the private rented sector and we have hands on experience of helping those new to the industry navigate the ins and outs of renting out their property.
From complex and ever-growing safety legislation, taxes on your rental income to landlord insurance, entering the rental world unplanned can be daunting. We understand your property is important to you and this is an unexpected journey, so we’re here to help.
Our fully managed service completely oversees the rental process, from getting your property ready, finding you the perfect tenant, issuing the tenancy agreement, carrying out regular property inspections and handling all repairs.
Should you opt for our rent collection or let-only services, we provide support and guidance as and when you need it and we offer a variety of additional ‘one-off’ landlord services, such as serving notices, renewing tenancies and carrying out gas and electrical safety checks.
