A landlord will come to us because we offer the service they want. A tenant will come to us because we have the property they want.

We could write pages about our services to both landlords and tenants. We like to treat all landlords and tenants as individuals, therefore the service requirements are built around what you want and need rather than what we think you need.

Let’s start with the costs

For most landlords, the big decision to make is to go for a ‘’fully managed service’’ or a ‘’find a tenant only service’’.
