    For complete peace of mind...

    We have recently introduced a new scheme, designed to give you the security and peace of mind every Landlord deserves.

    If you opt for 'Covered' you will receive your rent each and every month, without fail, regardless of whether or not your tenant pays. This will cover you up until the end of the tenancy, or until the tenant vacates.

     What makes this different...?

    There are many Rent Guarantee packages on the market, however almost all of these only pay out once your tenant has defaulted, leaving you without the rent for up to 2 months.

      great knowledge of the lettings business

They had a representative at the property who was keen to work for me and had great knowledge of the lettings business as well as the area. They were quick in finding a tenant and started the process of letting the property within days of appointing them. The paperwork and post letting support has been fantastic and this is just the type of managing agents I need with my busy schedule - more productivity, less hassle. It is a shame that they do not have offices in other areas where I own and let property.'
