Landlord Services 
  • paragraph

    Abode Property Management work closely with all our landlords - whether they happen to be based in Bristol or abroad. Our Managing Director and owner, Steve Harris, liaises with new landlords to establish their exact requirements.

    Where some landlords require only limited support such as simply a Viewings Service, others may be located overseas, have large portfolios or have busy work lives and prefer Full Property Management with more regular feedback. We are always keen to help, whether you have a small studio apartment or a large portfolio of properties.

    We aim to minimise the voids between tenancies. On average, this is only 8 days including a period of 5 days for any work which is required.

    We understand that everyone's requirements are different. We like to get to know you to see which level of service would most suit your lifestyle. Please get in touch to discuss these types of services in more detail - info@yourabode.co.uk or 0117 973 8866

Tenant Services

    We have an impressive High Street shop on Whiteladies Road, Clifton, where most prospective tenants search for properties in Bristol. 

    Our core market is within a 5 mile radius of the office and ranges from self-contained studio flats to large detached family homes to luxury Waterfront apartments. Our property list is updated daily and we also offer a registration service where you will be notified of new properties that match your criteria either by email or text message. You can register quickly on our website. 

    NEW! Our Tenant FAQ page has just been updated - find out more - www.yourabode.co.uk
