In the fast-moving London rental market, we balance your commercial interest and the tenant’s need for a good quality home. In order to deliver a first-rate service, we listen closely to your requirements, including what kind of tenant you want and how involved you’d like to be as a landlord. Here are the foundations of our approach to lettings.0104You want to find a great tenant - a longterm renter, ideally, who will respect your property. We work hard to find the right person (based on what you tell us) quickly and get the best price. We believe it’s better to have a stable income from a reliable tenant rather than the hassle of high turnover.We offer three service levels depending on your circumstances and budget.We think longterm.Landlord services.Let onlyIf you prefer to manage your own property, we simply find you a tenant and organise the tenancy agreement. This means we show applicants around on your behalf and carry out reference checks but leave the day-today running of the let up to you.02Finding a tenant.Rent collectionIn addition to finding a tenant, we collect the rent via standing order every month, so it’s automatically debited from the tenant’s account. Then you’re in charge of other matters, such as property maintenance and adherence to legislation.First we carry out a no obligation valuation, informed by knowledge of the local market. Then, if you hire us, we take professional photos that will help your property stand out. Most people begin their home hunt online so we get your place listed on the best websites fast, with a well-written description to attract potential tenants.Fully managedThe ultimate service that takes away all the stress of being a landlord. We manage everything from maintenance to annual inspections, while our 24 hour emergency line gives you complete peace of mind.03Online portal. The place to go for all information regarding your let. In a world overflowing with emails and paperwork, it can be hard to keep track of contracts and correspondence. That’s why we’ve created an online portal, a safe home for all the documents related to your rental property. No more searching through drawers to find that tenancy agreement.29Tips for selling your property. 01 First impressions are so important.
