Being a landlord carries many legal obligations and responsibilities and we want you to feel informed, confident and comfortable with the letting process. We’ve been involved in the local Leicester property market since 1998 and have helped hundreds of landlords let their properties successfully. It’s a privilege to be able to do so and one that we do not take for granted – ever.

Seven Steps to Successful Letting

Get Valuations

So, you have a property to rent. We suggest calling in three different agencies to help you determine a realistic rental value.

Choosing an Agent

Look out for experience, integrity and proven success.

Marketing Matters

How and where your property is marketed contributes greatly to your letting success. We use many different platforms to attract viewers to your property. With a higher level of interest, you can achieve better rents and benefit from a bigger selection of tenants to choose from.

Presentation, Presentation, Presentation

If you want to attract quality tenants at the best price, it’s imperative that your property is clean, well maintained and nicely presented.

Offers

Once quality tenants have been found and the rental price agreed,we will carry out all the necessary work including: Collecting references, arranging tenancy agreements, collecting the initial deposit and rent, and arranging for a thorough check-in and inventory.

Completion

Once all the above has been carried out and is in order, you can release the keys to your new tenant.

Property Management

We offer different tiers of service. From let only, where we will find you a quality tenant and carry out the introductory work, right through to full property management. This means you can sit back and relax knowing that we’re taking care of everything, including collecting rents, arranging safety checks, and ensuring maintenance and repairs are undertaken promptly and professionally.
