Our fully managed service includes all the above services. We also offer a tenant-find service which offers the first seven points from the above list. However, we can tailor our service to suit you and are happy to discuss how this could work for you.
We also consider the fees we charge to tenants to be important to landlords as charging very high fees to applicants may result in properties being on the market for longer. Therefore, our fees are competitive, clear and honest.
We are a long established family-owned estate and letting agency with over 25 years' experience. We are ARLA accredited and our staff regularly attend update courses keeping fully abreast of the ever changing legislation which we consider to be very important. We value our independence because of the freedom it gives us to deliver high quality service with the personal touch.
