We can take on the management of your rental property. You can find more details on this page or by downloading this information leaflet.pdf
We can help you to:
- maximise your profits
- free-up your time to help you develop your business
- take the hassle out of managing your rental properties
- help keep your tenants living in your property for longer.
We have our own repairs and maintenance staff to carry out any work on your property, giving us quick access to qualified, expert tradespeople.
By allowing us to manage your rental property, you can tap into our extensive knowledge and experience in the housing market.
You can choose from our range of services – you can take up as many or as few as you like.
There are no hidden costs for you or your tenant and we include the property inventory and bond registration in our costs.
Our main service costs include:
1. Tenant find

- advertising the property on Rightmove, Thirteen website and social media
- carrying out the application process: obtain references, credit checks and affordability assessments
- conducting viewings
- collecting deposits and rent payments
- preparing tenancy agreements and inventories.
2. Tenant find and sign-up
Our tenant find and sign-up service costs £240 (inc VAT) and includes all the elements in the tenant find service as above, plus:

- going through the inventory with the new tenant

3. Full housing management service
The full housing management service costs 12% of the rental value plus the £240 (inc VAT) tenant find and sign-up fee (if required).
This service includes all of the above elements if needed, plus:

Additional services which need to be carried out as a legal requirement include:
- Gas safety check with certificate
- Electrical safety check with certificate
