Frequently Asked Questions:
Will I have a single point of contact?
Yes. You will have one point of contact who will know your property and your tenant. You will not be passed from person to person having to explain yourself time and time again.
Are you Qualified to let properties?
We are member of the National Landlords association, which means we have a set standard of care that we follow to ensure the satisfaction of not only our landlords but also the tenants. Many letting agents forget about the importance of the tenants and that without them, property investing can be expensive. We understand the needs of the landlord and tenant and build relationships to allow the smooth running of each property.
