Landlords’ Information

landlordsOver the past 20 years, we have earned a good reputation not only for the standards of our properties but also for our professional approach Our aim is to secure good, long-term tenants in well-maintained homes, whilst minimising risk to our landlords.

We treat our landlords and our tenants with courtesy and professionalism. Successful tenancies are where both parties are happy, and we believe it is worth taking time and care to find the RIGHT tenant (who may not be the quickest tenant).

Our professional services are based around the following key principles:

Fairness

handshake• We do not charge you a set-up fee.

• We will not charge you fees when the property is empty.

• We will take no money from you until you start to receive rent.

• There are no hidden extras in our fees – we will tell you from the outset what we will charge and we will stick to it.

• We will refund your fee for any month in which you can show us that you did not receive our normal standard of service.

• If your property is under our Gold service, we will not charge you for renewing a tenancy.

• We receive no paybacks from suppliers

Independence

As a fully independent company, we are under no pressure on targets or commission.
We have freedom of choice over our suppliers and are able to be flexible.

Confidentiality and Security

Our referencing information is not passed on to any third parties. Our up-to-date administration systems are backed up remotely every evening.
