Renting and Managing your Property Successfully
  • paragraph

    Premium lettings team, premium service
    Our residential lettings and property management services capitalise on over twenty years of personal experience as private, professional landlords. Our proactive service supports landlords throughout Warwickshire and the neighbouring counties in...

    • Achieving the highest rent for your property
    • Guaranteeing the continuity of your rental income
    • Protecting the condition of your property and investment
    • Providing a seamless, first-rate service to both tenant and landlord
    What's more, whether we are simply securing a new tenancy or fully managing your property, we offer a completely transparent and fixed fee structure - one simple payment with no hidden costs. It's a premium service - as standard.

    You will receive:

    • Free property valuation - Your free, no-obligation valuation is based on a thorough assessment of your property, combined with our knowledge of the local market and analysis of current rental returns.
    • Fully managed or let-only service - Let us take over the full management of your property for just 10% of your monthly rental income (or 12% for overseas landlords). Alternatively, for a fixed fee we can complete a let-only service tailored to your individual requirements.
    • Professional marketing material - We are the only agent to market its rental properties with professional quality photographs, detailed floor plans and descriptions. Our premium marketing package ensures your property is promoted to its maximum potential and attracts the right tenant and the highest return.
    • Local agent/ international reach - As well as being listed on the Life Investment's website, your property will be marketed on Rightmove under a premium and featured listing campaign, as standard. This process maximises your property's exposure by ensuring it is seen by a global audience of prospective tenants. In addition, we will promote your property with targeted social media campaigns and through direct mail, as well as from our high street office, which is located in a prime position on Regent Street, Rugby.
    • Key Tenant Selection - We take your investment very seriously, which is why we devote time to finding you the perfect tenant. The first step in our rigorous vetting procedure is to produce tenant profiles for each applicant. This information enables you to choose the best match. We will support you in this process, but the final decision is yours.
    • Robust tenant referencing - Full references are obtained and completed by our professional referencing associate. This provides an in-depth view of a prospective tenant's personal circumstances, including employment history, credit history, lettings history and financial affordability.
    • Guaranteed rental income - For added peace of mind we can offer a 'guaranteed rent' assurance service. For 12% of your monthly rental income we guarantee continued rental payments up to £50,000 per annum in the event of any that are missed. We also offer legal expense insurance to gain vacant possession - up to £100,000.
    • Transparency and integrity - By publishing our fixed fee structure upfront we can guarantee you will not receive any surprise bills or hidden costs and unlike other estate agents we do not add hidden commission to any of your property's maintenance invoices.
    • Robust management inspections - As part of our premium management service guarantee, we complete property inspections and compile detailed reports for you every four months. This ensures that we identify and pre-empt any issues. Should we observe a potential problem, we will inform you immediately and where necessary, return two weeks later to ensure that the issue has been resolved.
    • Rental reviews - We conduct six monthly reviews to ensure your rental income is in line with its current market value. Where required, under your instruction, we will negotiate new rental terms, and when satisfied, new contracts will be drawn and issued.
    • Dedicated end-to-end service - From advising on how to prepare your property for tenancy and to meet legislative requirements, through to the completion of contracts, we pride ourselves on our professional, practical and pre-emptive service.
    • Independent inventory - We partner with a trusted, professional, independent inventory specialist who is regulated by the Association of Independent Inventory Clerks (AIIC). They provide a fully compliant, detailed and accurate record of the condition and contents of your property, which is designed to protect both landlords and tenants in the event of a dispute.

    What Customers think of Life Investments
    • Introduction

      "In today's competitive market positive feedback goes a long way. We're extremely proud of the glowing reviews and testimonials that we receive from our clients, which is why we've listed a selection below."

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      5 Star Review - Mrs Kim Larkin-Dyke
      After being let down by another Agent, a friend recommended the Lettings Team at Life Investments. I had an initial consultation at their Regent Street offices where they explained the benefits of using their premium lettings service. I found the team extremely friendly, supportive and passionate. I needed help with the transfer of management, renewal of contracts and the rectification of property issues that had been ignored by my current Estate Agent. Life Investments were happy to help and completed these tasks at their cost. My properties are now in safe hands and I am receiving the premium service that I deserve as a landlord. I have already referred friends and family and would recommend Life Investments to any landlord who wants their rental properties managing and tenants looking after properly.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      5 Star Review - Mr Adrian Usher
      After refurbishing my home the thought of placing it on the open rental market was a daunting prospect. I approached the team at Life Investments and they soon put my mind at rest. They went the extra mile with the marketing of my property and the finding of really good, low maintenance tenants. I am using their fully managed service which is extremely cost effective and I have also taken their 'guaranteed rent' option for my peace of mind. My rent is paid to me on time each month and I get a detailed property inspection report every three. If any property issues occur they obtain three quotes and I advise them on which tradesman to use. I am extremely happy with the service provided and would recommend them to anyone who requires a premium lettings team.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      5 Star Review - Mrs Jacqui Guthrie
      I am a landlord and investor and I first met Martin Pitcher from Life Investments when I was purchasing a BTL property through his agency. I subsequently decided to place one of my portfolio properties with him. I can only say that the service he offers is second to none.Martin ensures that you receive the best possible level of service by ensuring that all details are paid attention to. I had long term tenants in the property I have just sold through Life investments and Martin formed a relationship with them and made sure that he was sensitive to their needs as I had requested, while conducting multiple viewings. Martin always works hard to build a personal relationship and I think it is this that sets him apart from other agents. He also is the only agent that gives such detailed feedback through his weekly data reports showing response to the marketing strategy. I simply cant recommend them highly enough!
    • Landlord Testimonial

      5 Star Review - Mr Matt Green
      Due to relocation I had to urgently find a rental property in the Rugby area. I emailed all Estate Agent's based in Rugby advising them of my budget, location and size of house required. The only agent to respond to me was the team at Life Investments. Although they did not have a property at the time they found me a suitable home within 48 Hours. The whole rental process was extremely slick and explained to me from start to finish. Their referencing and administration fees were cheaper than other agents and I had moved into my new home within 3 weeks of my initial enquiry. They complete management visits every three months and identify any maintenance issues that need to be addressed. The boiler recently failed on a Friday evening. I had no problem contacting the team on their 'out of hours' emergency number. An engineer was instructed and the boiler was fixed by 12.00 noon the following day. I have rented before and can honestly say they offer a much better service. I would recommend life Investments to anyone thinking of renting a property. Matt Green
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Mr Michael Cussack, Multi Property landlord
      Since transferring all of my properties to Life Investments several years ago now, I am happy to say I'm receiving the level of care and attention, that for the first time I can completely relax with the knowledge that my investments are in safe hands. All properties are managed impeccably with a level of detail in monthly reports, house inspections and general communication that I have never received from countless other agents I have used in the past. If you have a house to let, sell or purchase please look no further and call today - they are that good!
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Mrs Heena Hargoven, Landlady
      Life investments has made being a landlord so easy for us. They are absolutely trustworthy and great at letting and managing our property. In Warwickshire I would rate them as the best we have worked with. What they've achieved as an independent business is remarkable. I would highly recommend them.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Mrs Vanessa Jean-Baptiste, Landlady and Vendor
      Used this agent for 5 years and the service was second to none. If you want someone to manage your rented property or to sell for you, Martin and the team always went the extra mile
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Mrs Sharon Morrow, Landlady and Vendor
      Excellent and professional service throughout. I would have no hesitation in recommending life investments for any sales or house rentals in the future
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Mr Richard Horsfall, Landlord and Vendor
      I have owned and rented out property in Rugby for a number of years. Life investments were recommended to me as an alternative to the other letting agents within the Rugby area. What a breath of fresh air this relationship has been over the last number of years. I am quite a proactive landlord with regards to my property and it has been refreshing to find a letting agent that is switched on to the market, are very efficient in the running of their business and have professional staff that are very communicative. As a landlord, If you are looking to rent out a property in the Rugby area or indeed if you are looking to rent in a property in this region I strongly advise you to take a look at Life Investments before any other agents as their service has been first class. Martin Pitcher and his team have looked after me over the years and i believe his approach to business is second to none, this philosophy is also mirrored in his team. Well done guys.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Mrs C Kitching, Property Investor
      As a first time landlord I was daunted at the prospect of selecting an agent to represent my interests so when Life Investments came highly recommended by a neighbour and colleague I was happy to engaged them. I have no regrets in engaging them, they have acted in a most professional and fair manner in both their dealing with me and my tenants. They are quick to contact me to let me know of any issues with the property and work with me to ensure a speedy and cost effective resolution. They listen to both sides of any contractual situations and work to ensure a mutually happy conclusion. I am more than happy to recommend them a letting agent.

      • Guaranteed rental income - For added peace of mind we can offer a 'guaranteed rent' assurance service. For 12% of your monthly rental income we guarantee continued rental payments up to £50,000 per annum in the event of any that are missed. We also offer legal expense insurance to gain vacant possession - up to £100,000.

      • Robust management inspections - As part of our premium management service guarantee, we complete property inspections and compile detailed reports for you every four months. This ensures that we identify and pre-empt any issues. Should we observe a potential problem, we will inform you immediately and where necessary, return two weeks later to ensure that the issue has been resolved.
      • Rental reviews - We conduct six monthly reviews to ensure your rental income is in line with its current market value. Where required, under your instruction, we will negotiate new rental terms, and when satisfied, new contracts will be drawn and issued.
      • Dedicated end-to-end service - From advising on how to prepare your property for tenancy and to meet legislative requirements, through to the completion of contracts, we pride ourselves on our professional, practical and pre-emptive service.
      • Independent inventory - We partner with a trusted, professional, independent inventory specialist who is regulated by the Association of Independent Inventory Clerks (AIIC). They provide a fully compliant, detailed and accurate record of the condition and contents of your property, which is designed to protect both landlords and tenants in the event of a dispute.

        5 Star Review - Mr Rob Madden
        We recently purchased and sold property through Martin at Life Investments. Martin personally dealt with the sale of our house. He was tenacious in getting the deal done, very responsive, hands on and paid attention to detail. All of his efforts paid off and we sold at significantly more (10%) than any other agents had suggested we'd get for our property. Life Investments offered the following services that we found extremely helpful - - Professional quality Photographs of the full building, rooms and garden - Marketing data graphs looking at response to the marketing over time. This data was very helpful to see if we were priced at the right level - All viewings are accompanied by someone from the life Investments team who new our property and our circumstances - Advice and guidance on negotiations - particularly helpful as we were dealing with an overseas buyer! - 100% focus from sale through to completion. All purchase / selling issues were clearly defined and a number of solutions suggested The entire Life Investments team demonstrated a high level of commitment to their work and were instrumental to a successful outcome! We've dealt with several agents in Rugby over the last few years, and would highly recommend Martin and his team. Overall 10/10!!

        5 Star Review - Mr and Mrs Hall
        I can highly recommend Martin, Louise and the wider team. From initial meeting right through to completion. Very attentive, easy to contact and overall great service. Martin managed to arrange viewings before our property had even been listed and then from listing to agreeing a sale took just 6 days. We will definitely use Life Investments in the future.

        5 Star Review - Mr Mike Todd
        What can I say ! Life Investments were perfect from start to finish. Martin and his team went above and beyond what was expected and even now after we have sold and moved to Wales they still help us if we have any queries or questions .We cannot fault them in any way, everyone is helpful, professional, and they kept us fully informed all the way through the process.We have no hesitation in recommending them 100% if you want a quick, successful and pain free experience.

        5 Star Review - Mr and Mrs Goodwinn
        I have to say that the prospect of selling and moving away was a little frightening to say the least! Then we found Martin and his marvelous team....from the initial visit to evaluate the house to sale and completion they were so enthusiastic and totally professional in everything they did. On the market and sold within 3 days was amazing and at the price we wanted! We would recommend Life Investments to anyone who was thinking of selling their house, they would not regret it. Best wishes to all at LI and Thank You. Madeliene and Tony.

        5 Star Review - Mrs Jacqui Guthrie
        I am a landlord and investor and I first met Martin Pitcher from Life Investments when I was purchasing a BTL property through his agency. I subsequently decided to place one of my portfolio properties with him. I can only say that the service he offers is second to none.Martin ensures that you receive the best possible level of service by ensuring that all details are paid attention to. I had long term tenants in the property I have just sold through Life investments and Martin formed a relationship with them and made sure that he was sensitive to their needs as I had requested, while conducting multiple viewings. Martin always works hard to build a personal relationship and I think it is this that sets him apart from other agents. He also is the only agent that gives such detailed feedback through his weekly data reports showing response to the marketing strategy. I simply cant recommend them highly enough!

        5 Star Review - Mr Nigel Smith
        I can only offer positives from our dealings with Life Investments during our property purchase which completed in January of this year. I understand Customer interaction and it's importance in building a relationship during such a large investment. Choosing to purchase a property from Life Investments was without doubt the best possible choice for us for the following reasons: I work irregular hours, during the decision to buy and throughout the exchange process Martin was in regular contact without need to prompt or chase. The updates provided were clear and accurate with no misleading or inaccurate feedback. Due to my work hours Martin was available, sometimes way past normal office hours to provide guidance and assistance leading to as successful completion. A very professional and friendly service both above and beyond expectation. Highly recommended, we would not hesitate to use Life Investments again.

        5 Star Review - Mr Sandy Sewell
        I have just purchased my new property in Burbage, Leics through the Life Investments agency in Rugby. The team, Louise and Martin provided a first-class service in helping to negotiate both a fair price and assisting in every way to ensure a smooth passage into our new home. Throughout the process the team demonstrated at all times a friendly, professional and efficient approach and I would have no hesitation in recommending Life Investments for any future dealings.

        Mr Michael Cusscak, Multi  Property Landlord
        Since transferring all of my properties to Life Investments several years ago now, I am happy to say I'm receiving the level of care and attention, that for the first time I can completely relax with the knowledge that my investments are in safe hands. All properties are managed impeccably with a level of detail in monthly reports, house inspections and general communication that I have never received from countless other agents I have used in the past. If you have a house to let, sell or purchase please look no further and call today - they are that good!

        Mrs Heena Hargoven, Landlady 
        Life investments has made being a landlord so easy for us. They are absolutely trustworthy and great at letting and managing our property. In Warwickshire I would rate them as the best we have worked with. What they've achieved as an independent business is remarkable. I would highly recommend them.

        Excellent and professional service throughout. I would have no hesitation in recommending life investments for any sales or house rentals in the future
      • Seller Testimonial

        Mr Richard Horsfall, Landlord and Vendor
        I have owned and rented out property in Rugby for a number of years. Life investments were recommended to me as an alternative to the other letting agents within the Rugby area. What a breath of fresh air this relationship has been over the last number of years. I am quite a proactive landlord with regards to my property and it has been refreshing to find a letting agent that is switched on to the market, are very efficient in the running of their business and have professional staff that are very communicative. As a landlord, If you are looking to rent out a property in the Rugby area or indeed if you are looking to rent in a property in this region I strongly advise you to take a look at Life Investments before any other agents as their service has been first class. Martin Pitcher and his team have looked after me over the years and i believe his approach to business is second to none, this philosophy is also mirrored in his team. Well done guys.

        Mrs C Kitching, Property Investor
        As a first time landlord I was daunted at the prospect of selecting an agent to represent my interests so when Life Investments came highly recommended by a neighbour and colleague I was happy to engaged them. I have no regrets in engaging them, they have acted in a most professional and fair manner in both their dealing with me and my tenants. They are quick to contact me to let me know of any issues with the property and work with me to ensure a speedy and cost effective resolution. They listen to both sides of any contractual situations and work to ensure a mutually happy conclusion. I am more than happy to recommend them a letting agent.
