Landlord Service Summary
  • paragraph

    An accurate, honest market appraisal

    We conduct a thorough appraisal of the current market before giving you a value for your property, based on decades of local experience and knowledge. We'll back it up with hard facts and evidence, and we'll even suggest what type of tenant you can expect.

  • paragraph

    A value for today's market
    It's easy to let a property for yesterday's market value, but we live in the present and do more to maximise our clients' income. As a result, we regularly have new clients tell us we've managed to let their property for significantly more rent than their previous agent.
  • paragraph

    Extensive marketing
    Every agent advertises on Rightmove and Zoopla (well, they should!), but how many are on the back of Cardiff buses, have a huge following on social media and have sponsored Cardiff Blues? We reach more local people than anyone else, meaning your property does too.
  • paragraph

    Big demand results in maximum rent
    The exposure we get for your property helps us achieve the maximum possible rental income for you. When demand for anything is high, prices can stay high. When it's low, prices are forced down, but thankfully demand is never low with us!
  • paragraph

    Let within 4 days with Wales' biggest agent
    Housing more than 7,000 tenants every year, we're Wales' biggest agent. Such is the demand for our new listings, we've calculated that, on average, it takes us just 4 days to let a property.
  • paragraph

    Fully-vetted tenants
    We don't move just anyone into your property. We ensure it's someone who's able to afford the rent, is in stable employment/education and, where applicable, has a positive renting history (paying rent on time and looking after the property).
  • paragraph

    All-year-round occupancy
    An empty property is no good to anyone, so it's just as well we're experts in keeping them filled. We average 362 days occupation each year, which is 99.2% all-year-round occupation. In comparison, the national average is a three-week void period every year.
  • paragraph

    Investment purchase advice
    A lot of our clients are seeking to expand their property portfolios, so we'll happily offer advice on which purchases are best from a lettings perspective and what rental income can be expected. We even have a mailing list that gets exclusive, first-look access to new listings.
  • paragraph

    Water and Council Tax liability
    There's a little-known legal obligation on landlords in Wales to inform the Water Authorities of any changes in tenancy within 21 days. Failure to do so can mean landlords are held liable for water bills, so we ensure they're told along with Cardiff Council.

    • Landlord Testimonial

      I have never been without a tenant
      "Outstanding service provider to landlords. Always keep in touch and promptly address any problem. I have never been without a tenant in my two properties in Cardiff as CPS Homes finds the tenant as soon as old one leaves. I will highly recommend them to everyone." 

      Arun, TrustPilot, May 2021
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Nothing is ever too much trouble for them

    Testimonials from Tenants

    • Tenant Testimonial

      Had clear answers to all my queries
      "I just signed my new home with CPS homes. Cath Taylor assisted me through the entire process. She was super friendly and eased the whole process for me. Also, she was able to solve any little hurdles that I faced along the way, and had perfect clear answers to any of my queries. 

      She made the link between the tenant (myself) and the landlord (whom I was leasing the property from) super easy and quick. I would highly recommend CPS homes if you live in Cardiff and are trying to find a nice place to live as a student. Also they have some really nice and fancy apartments at very affordable rates."

      Afrin, Google Reviews, July 2021
    • Tenant Testimonial

      Insightful, kind and reassuring
      "I've not dealt with CPS Homes prior to today and I've had several awful experiences with letting agents, however, Chelsea Staunton made my life incredibly easy, offering accurate & thoughtful information about prospective properties and ultimately helping me & my friends secure a home to rent that was perfect for us.

      The house was not only the nicest house we had seen but also the cheapest! I would recommend letting or even buying (I'm sure) through CPS Homes & definitely ask for Chelsea! She's very insightful, kind & reassuring as we rushed to get our perfect house off the market! I wish every experience I had with a letting agent was as seamless as it was with Chelsea!" 

      Tom, Google Reviews, July 2021
    • Tenant Testimonial

      Thank you for making me feel valued 
      "Thank you to Patch Horrocks for dealing with my deposit professionally and making me feel valued as a tenant. 5 stars!" 

      Matt, Google Reviews, July 2021
    • Tenant Testimonial

      Absolutely faultless
      "Absolutely faultless so far! After trawling through flats we didn't like for months the perfect one came up with CPS so we just bit the bullet and signed based solely on the video they provided.
       
      We moved in on the 1st July and although there were some issues with the flat, these have all been resolved within 1 week of moving in. A locksmith attended the flat within a few hours of me requesting one from CPS and the landlord is fixing our kitchen tap as I type this.
       
      The video was a true representation of the flat and there were no nasty surprises. The flat was actually a bit bigger than it seemed in the video. Thank you so much to Zara, Marta, Marie and Charlotte who have all been so helpful!"  
       
      Felicity, TrustPilot, July 2021
    • Tenant Testimonial

      Easiest company to work with by far
      "I spent a long time looking for a place in Cardiff (from a distance). This was the easiest company to work with by far, they were so responsive!" 

      Jessie, Google Review, June 2021
    • Tenant Testimonial

      The best experience I've had with a Cardiff agent
      "I was looking for a rental in Cardiff for weeks now and this was by far the best experience I've had with any of the agents. I spoke to Cath Taylor about a property just listed hours prior, she kindly (and patiently) explained everything regarding the process down to the very last details and in what was a super quick process, helped me secure the property right away. I have every hope that the duration of my contract will be just as pleasant as this call was." 

      Barbara, Trustpilot, June 2021
    • Tenant Testimonial

      Maintenance assistance has been exceptional
      "Patch's help with our property maintenance issues has been nothing short of exceptional. His communication has been speedy and effective and has seen that our issues have been met."
