    No Let, No Fee - The Fair Way to do Business

  • paragraph

    Why use us?

    Our lettings team will help you find tenants, minimise costly void periods and maximise your return on investment.

    We can do everything from marketing your property and sourcing tenants right through to drawing up contracts, arranging property management and dealing with all rental collections. We strive hard to make sure your property is let quickly and easily.

    Whether you have one property or a large portfolio, or you're a new or experienced landlord, you can be assured of our professionalism and reliability in managing your requirements.

    Providing first-class customer service is at the core of our business, and we have extensive experience in removing the stressful responsibilities of being a landlord.

    No Let, No Fee

    Because we're confident in our ability to promote and successfully rent your property, we offer a 'No Let-No Fee' guarantee. If a letting agent is good at what they do, they don't need to tie you in. In the unlikely event that we can't find a tenant for your property, you won't be charged. It's as simple as that.

    We don't charge your tenants

    We're already ahead of the curve on this. There's a strong likelihood that admin fees for tenants will be scrapped by the government soon, so we've already done it! We don't charge your tenants any admin fees for renting your property. This make it easier for you, easier for us, and much fairer for your tenant.

    Insurance/Rental Guarantee

    What would you do if your tenant couldn't meet their rental payments?

    Even if your tenant has passed all the relevant credit checks, it's hard to predict when a change in your tenant's circumstances might happen. Missed rental payments could result in you having problems making your mortgage payments on your buy-to-let investment. This is why, for peace of mind, it makes sense to take out our rental guarantee insurance. Contact us now to find out more.

      I had a great experience while interacting with Krishnan during the purchase of the Wilburn Basin flat. He is a professional, hard working and trust worthy individual who believes in placing client's interest first. I thoroughly values his insight and knowledge of the local real estate market. I am thankful to his support as he took the stress away right from the purchase to renting out the flat. Looking forward to working with him again

      ' Great service! '

      James and Krishan were brilliant to deal with from my first enquiry. I received a phone call straight away and they arranged a viewing to fit around my work hours. They had great knowledge of the property and development which you don't find with most city centre letting agencies. Viewing the property again to take measurements before we moved in was no problem at all and they were really helpful responding to any queries by phone and text throughout the move in process. Both are very friendly and professional and I would absolutely recommend them! My husband and i have experienced our fair share of nightmare letting agencies so this experience was wonderfully refreshing!
