Building harmony between landlords and their tenants

Levels of Service for Landlords

A Tailored Service

Outlined below are the two basic elements of our service. However, we maintain a flexible attitude, and are generally able to adapt our service to meet our clients individual circumstances and needs, for example by providing a part only service, or occasionally taking on additional tasks and duties.


Full Management

This is our inclusive service, which provides for the marketing of the property and carrying out viewings, leading to the introduction and vetting of a prospective tenant. This proving satisfactory, we will then go ahead and prepare the tenancy agreement, and if required an inventory. The tenant will then be checked in against the inventory.


During the tenancy we carry out periodic inspection visits. Should these bring to light any maintenance issues, we will (within the terms of the Management Agreement) recommend, oversee and account for any necessary repairs.

Collecting and processing of rental payments is also part of the service. These will be credited automatically to the landlords nominated bank account.


Towards the end of tenancy, we will liaise with the landlord and take instruction on how you would like to proceed, whether that be to sign a new 6 month contract or let it fall into a periodic tenancy (month to month) or indeed terminate the tenancy.


This service is suited for those landlords who are not residing locally, or would rather not deal with tenants directly, preferring all aspects to be handled by the agent.


Letting Only

Our "Letting Only" service includes marketing of the property and carrying out viewings, leading to the introduction and vetting of a prospective tenant. This providing satisfactory, we will then go ahead and prepare the tenancy agreement, and if required an inventory.


Following this, the first month’s rent and a security deposit will be collected. These will be credited to the landlord less our agreed fee. It is the landlord's responsibility to protect the said deposit.


Managing the tenancy, including the maintenance and rent collection, will then be the responsibility of the landlord.
