A member of staff accompanies tenants for all viewings and we undertake to get feedback back to you as soon as possible.


We request a deposit on all tenancies equal to one month’s rent plus one hundred pounds, Deposits are held to ensure the tenant looks after the property and as a safeguard against unpaid rent. It is refundable at the end f the tenancy only after the tenant has vacated the property and proving the property and their account are in order. When the tenant vacates the property you will have an opportunity, should you wish to do so, to inspect the property yourself prior to the deposit being refunded.

Property Inspections

We conduct regular inspections on all managed properties, usually every three months, but more often if requested.

Property Inventories

We arrange inventories on all managed properties. Inventories can be arranged for let only properties for an additional cost.


All new tenancies commence with a six-month assured shorthold tenancy. After the initial six month period, assuming both parties are in agreement, the tenancy can either be renewed or revert to a periodic tenancy.

Existing Mortgages

If the property you wish to rent is subject to a mortgage then we would recommend that you inform your lender prior to the rental. Some lenders ask to see a copy of the lease, which the tenant will be asked to sign, we will happily provide them with this.


As a land lord you are still responsible for the building and accordingly the buildings insurance. If the property is furnished or part furnished you may also wish to consider contents insurance. The tenants are, however, responsible for insuring their own belongings kept in the property.

Overseas Landlords

Up until April 1996 landlords who moved out of the United Kingdom had to have tax deducted by their agents. Now however, a landlord can apply for an exemption certificate from the Inland Revenue. This makes it attractive to rent you property out if one is going overseas for a lengthy period.


We would normally require two sets of keys to the property, one will be handed to the tenant on occupation and the other will be retained in our office for emergencies.
