    Being Landlords ourselves we understand the desire of our clients to keep the 'propertyletting' side easy and hassle-free, as well as profitable. 

    There are over 150 Acts of Parliament and numerous sets of regulations that govern the private rented sector. From property conditions, energy performance certificates, gas safety checks, tenancy agreements, taxation and immigration checks. There will undoubtedly be more to come. 

    We believe it's important you have access to all the relevant information in one place, especially with more legislation now governing the private rented sector than ever before. Our industry is still yet to be regulated. Unlike other agents Kavanagh & Co are Propertymark ARLA qualified meaning we must adhere to strict rules and have all areas of our business assessed and inspected on a regular basis. 

    Our guide to lettings is designed to assist Landlords by giving answers to some of those frequently asked questions. At Kavanagh & Co we are always on hand to discuss all areas within our industry whether that be the latest legislation, advice on your portfolio and returns, or where to invest next. 

    We would welcome the opportunity to meet for a coffee to discuss your portfolio and how to maximise your investment. With so many regulations relating to lettings it's important that you can rely on professionals.

The skills he gained gave him a solid foundation, he was instrumental in setting up 'Henley Financial Services' specialising in residential mortgages. The strong relationships he had built and the knowledge he had gained within the industry led to the setting up of 'Home & Away Estate & Lettings Agents'. 

    Pre-recession, Tom made the bold decision to focus on Residential Lettings, He soon spotted an opportunity to forge links with Taylors Estate Agents and other local Estate Agents, who at the time had no lettings arm. This led to the birth of 'Taylors Lettings Ltd', a brand-new company owned and run by Tom, which under his leadership were soon outperforming local competitors.

      Many thanks for a great job.
      We have several rental properties, and used Taylor's Lettings for the first time recently. Sean Kavanagh dealt with this for us, and did a great job. The first people who viewed the property decided to take it, and everything was dealt with in an extremely professional way. Sean was extremely helpful, and helped us with many aspects regarding information and questions which arose. Many thanks for a great job. Mrs Knowlson (Landlord)
