Property management

Our management service is designed to free you of the day to day responsibilities of your rental property or portfolio. Our dedicated property managers take care of everything to help you get the maximum return on your investment with the minimum of fuss.

Day to day

We manage all day to day contact with tenants and arrange maintenance and repairs. Wherever possible, we visit your property personally to investigate any reported issues before booking a contractor, saving you money on unnecessary call outs.

Regular inspections

We conduct regular, thorough inspections of your property so you can be reassured that it’s being well looked after. Meeting with tenants at the same time also helps us address any issues that may otherwise arise at the end of the tenancy.

Happy tenants

We work with you to make sure your tenants are happy, keeping your property in good repair and encouraging a relationship that works in both your interests. As a result, most tenancies are renewed, minimising vacant periods and providing you with a reliable rental income.

Keeping compliant

Frequent changes to legislation means it can be difficult to stay on top of your responsibilities as a landlord. You can rely on our skilled team to keep you inform you on any changes, big or small, advising you on your legal obligations and keeping you compliant.

24/7 online maintenance portal

Our maintenance portal helps protect your property around the clock, providing:

  • A straightforward way for tenants to report issues and access guides for simple fixes
  • Detailed reports for agents and contractors, helping to increase first time fixes and save you money
  • In-built advice for emergencies and support in multiple languages, so messages don't get lost in translation
