Letting your property

    Helping Landlords

    Letting your property needs professional planning - and an agent who will look after your interests. At the same time, an agent that will make being a landlord as stress-free as possible.

    Your property is a major investment and it is important that you are aware of your responsibilities as a landlord, as well as knowing the best way to optimise your investment.

    Our letting's team brings experience and enthusiasm to every letting or management. We are small enough to give you an individual service, yet big enough to guarantee the coverage you need.

    We have been helping landlords let properties in and around Cambridge for over 20 years and our reputation for integrity and professionalism is why landlords use our services year after year.

    Why choose us to let your property?

    We know that letting a property can be daunting, and understanding where to go to find the best tenants can be difficult, but at Bychoice we won't rest until we do.

    "We are committed to professionally managing your property and representing you to your tenant as a responsible landlord and understand that our reputation depends on your satisfaction."

    We market your property on Rightmove, Zoopla, Prime location, our Bychoice website, the Guild of Professional Estate Agents website and other website where appropriate, including photography, EPC's, floor plans and brochure.

    As Landlords ourselves we understand the importance of minimizing void periods, getting the very best deal in terms of pricing, break clauses, term dates and managing furniture and other demands from tenants. We also manage closely seasonal low and high demand periods when negotiating lease start and break clause dates.

    We understand it can look like an intimidating task to vet the right tenant, but at Bychoice we put each tenant through a thorough screening process. We reference each prospect through Van Mildert, who have access to data intelligence which grants us more information than traditional referencing for a deeper understanding of each applicant
