    Why use Rental Insight?
    Rental Insight is a long established letting agency that works hard for you as its client. We pride ourselves on delivering a great service to our landlords and also to your tenants so that they stay in the properties long term making your investment work harder.

    Our owner Aran Curry has over 110 properties himself and our sister company Property Insight aims to buy over 200 properties every year for its investors all across the country, that we then manage. It is the market leading portfolio company in the UK.

    Rental Refurbishment, another sister company is designed to run for our landlords at cost price. We do not mark up or try and profit from your maintenance works. As we are refurbishing 150+ new properties every year and looking after hundreds of others we get the very best value for money both for materials and for workmen. All these discounts are passed onto you as our clients, meaning you benefit from mass purchasing power across any properties we manage for you.

    Aran is a highly sought after educator in property and fortnightly runs Free Property Webinars that are pure education to help people learn more about property. Over 400 people register to attend every fortnight.

    You will be working with a company that know exactly what they are doing and do exactly what they do for their own properties as they do for their investors.

    What areas do we cover

    There are two parts to the areas that we cover:

    Scarborough Local Letting Agent

    We are a Scarborough based company. We own a lot of personal property in Scarborough, our team of thirty eight staff live and work in Scarborough and we know the area very well. So we know we can deliver a superb service to you in Scarborough and the surrounding area.

    Midlands to the North

    We buy properties for our investor clients from Northampton up to Newcastle and Hull across to Manchester and Liverpool, and all points in between - see the map below.

    We have full teams on the ground in all these areas that are managed from our head office in Scarborough but deliver the service.

    If a business is paying for a shop front, its clients have to pay for that benefit. Ten years ago in lettings this was important. Now 90% of properties are first seen on line. So by removing the cost of the local shops we can keep our costs down for you our clients.

    Each area across the country has what we call a "viewer". The "viewer" first shows the tenants around, does inspections, chase rents, and is regularily visiting the property. We manage everything centrally at head office regards collecting rent and advertising properties, but have the local knowledge and teams to deliver.

    We also have full maintenance teams in place across all the areas on the map below.

    You need to know that your property will be well managed, that the hassle will be taken away and that you will get as much rent as possible.

    You want the legalities to be looked after and you want the costs kept to a minimum as the tenancy is managed so well that the tenants stay long term and look after your property.

    We know this because we are landlord.

    To many letting agents are set up by people that do not have a depth of experience to fully understand how to:

    1. Know what the landlord needs

    2. Know what the tenant needs to make them want to stay

    3. Know how to recruit excellent team members to deliver a great service

    4. Know that every successful business is built on very solid systems that are repeatable and clear.

    Many will have some of these attributes but not all.

    Our depth of experience

    Rental Insight is part of a group of six property companies all owned by the same person. All are successful businesses that have thrived, whilst others have had problems in recent years. This is due to constant investment into training and developing our teams and our systems and drawing on many years of great experience.

    With over 110 rental properties owned, over 6000 buy to let mortgage clients, over 100 investors that we are buying over 200 properties per year for we really do understand what landlords and tenants want.

    If you click the tabs at the top right of the screen you can look at any of our other businesses and also our charity Property for Freedom, which is building a portfolio of 1500 UK properties, over the next twenty years, to support people in Africa to become self sustainable.

    Aran is very well known for educating people in how to grow their property investments. His book sells on Amazon and his fortnightly Webinars have over 400 people register each time to hear him speak on property.

    Our cost and fees

    We like to be very transparent with our fees so it is clear to everyone.

    Tenant Find fee £350+VAT

    (this is a flat fee and not a %age of the first month's rent. It takes the same work to rent a property whatever its rental value. We charge this at cost. We want your property rented and can then make our money from its rent being paid regularly and on time.)

    Monthly Management Fee 10%+VAT

    There are no other fees charged to you as the landlord.

    A tenant pays a fee of £100 when they apply for a property. This covers both applicants if there are two of them. The tenant has no other fees.

    We understand that VAT is a real pain and adds to the cost. However please remember that any company that is not registered for VAT must only be managing less than 100 properties as they have a turnover of less than £80,000. Will you really get the best service and outcomes from a company with that experience?

    So they are a lot smaller and that is probably down to experience, which will reflect in your returns from your property. We charge fair fees and deliver great returns

    Where do we advertise your properties?


    When you have a property empty it is costing you money. With this in mind we use the best resources available to rent your property quickly.

    Properties will be listed on Right Move, Zoopla and many other internet sites. We also will advertise your property on local face book pages.

    We will put a board at your property and also advertise in the local newsagents and by dropping letters through local doors

    If we have not rented your property within four weeks we will also pay (at our cost) for another local agent to advertise it as well so you have two companies trying to rent it at the same time

We Love New Tenants
  • paragraph

    Treat the property as your own - stay long term


    Without tenants we don't have a business and our landlords do not have any rent.

    We know how valueable a good tenant is and work hard to provide you with a great rental property and great service in return for you being a great tenant.

    Your rental property is YOUR HOME. We treat it as such and will make sure that any maintenance issues are rectified immediately and that any requests to upgrade the property or change it to your tastes will be met wherever possible.

    We want 'lifer tenants' - people who want to stay long term. Our landlords plan to own the properties for decades so having a settled tenant is good for them and good for you.

    All of our properties are listed on Right Move and Zoopla.

    If you can not see what you are looking for or have any other questions then please call us on 01723 353255 or email info@rentalinsight.co.uk and we will call you straight back.

    Our Costs & Fees

    All our tenants need to pay a bond to secure a property. If you are interested in a specific property let us know and then we can confirm what the relevant bond is.

    We charge £120 application and referencing fee to any new tenant. This is to cover our costs of referencing and setting up the tenancy. It is a one off fee and covers you for life with us (we don't charge a renewal fee). It also cover both of you if it is a joint application.

    Most of our landlords will accept DSS tenants and often small pets, but subject to extra checks and references.

    There are no other fees payable to Rental Insight
