Whether you are looking for a property suitable for the rental market, someone to take care of the property management or someone to advise on the financial or legal aspects, we are here to help.

Rental Assessment

Rental assessments are free of charge and without obligation. We can arrange a visit to your property, at a time convenient for you, to discuss the achievable rent. The primary factors that may affect the rent achievable are the condition of the property, its suitability, its location, whether it is to be let furnished or unfurnished, market conditions and the time of year.


We aim to let your property quickly and seamlessly to the right tenant at the right price. Marketing includes property details and listing on our database which runs an active mailing list. The property will also be displayed on our website as well as third party property websites. In addition we would erect a To Let board at the property to maximise local interest.


Once a suitable tenant has been found they complete an application form which we then use to carry out a full credit assessment, which checks the prospective tenant’s credit history previous addresses and public records. We obtain an employment reference that confirms income and length of employment and finally if applicable we obtain a previous landlords reference. Only once satisfactory references have been received will the tenancy be allowed to commence.


Before any tenancy begins we visit the property to compile a fully detailed inventory and schedule of condition, including dated photographs. This document forms part of the tenancy agreement and its contents may be used as evidence in court should the need arise.

Gas and Electrical Safety

We will advise our landlords on what is required to make sure the property meets all the legal requirements of the gas and electrical safety laws as well as fire and furnishing law.

Signing up and moving in

The new tenants are met at the property to go over the legal details, sign the tenancy agreement, verify the inventory of property contents, schedule of condition and read all the meters.

Property Inspections

Property inspections are carried out every three months. We check that the tenants are occupying the property in a tenant–like manner and complying with the terms of the agreement. A report is left at the property or emailed to the tenant and copy kept on file. The landlord is advised of any repair issues that are raised and any considered breaches of the tenancy agreement. Tenants are advised of any issues that they may need to address and revisited to re inspect accordingly in the following days/weeks the timing is depending on the seriousness of the issue.

Repairs and Maintenance

We will advise of any actions required and if instructed to do so, will arrange and organise repairs using either contractors from our approved contractors list or the landlords preferred contractor. Invoices are deducted from rent received or forwarded direct at cost if preferred.

Tenancy Renewals

We will contact you during the fourth month of the tenancy for instructions on renewal. For example, to offer the existing tenant a further term or to issue notice to terminate. If we do not receive a response from the landlord we will then offer a renewal of tenancy.

Final Inspections

An inspection of the property will be carried out once the tenant has vacated with the tenant accompanying the inspection wherever possible. The tenant is charged for any repairs and cleaning required that is considered beyond fair wear and tear this will be percentage damage costs not new for old as detailed in the deposit conditions set out by government. The landlord is notified of this and also advised on the on-going condition of the property and what is required to effect a quick re-let.
