More About Our Lettings Service

Enquiries about your property will be handled by our experienced letting agent teams plus we’ll schedule and conduct viewings with potential tenants. When we find the right tenant, we’ll negotiate the tenancy terms, check the tenant’s references, carry out a credit check, and complete other mandatory checks, as necessary. We then draw up the tenancy agreement and collect and hold the tenant’s deposit, with a recognised, official, tenancy deposit scheme. Alternatively, we can transfer the deposit to you once collected from the tenant.

We can also complete an inventory of the property before the tenant moves in, documenting and photographing the property and all its contents.

You have the option of managing the property yourself, or our letting agent teams can manage it for you. Our property management service includes the collection of rent and dealing with any issues that may arise regarding the maintenance of the property during the tenancy period.

If you wish to extend the tenancy once the original agreement ends, we will handle the process for you. This includes negotiating new terms which can include a re-evaluation of the rentable value of the property and, where appropriate, an increase in rent.

We will also handle the entire process if you or the tenant does not wish to extend the tenancy. This includes, the issuing of notices, inspecting the property and conducting another inventory. If repairs are needed, we will deduct the cost from the tenant’s deposit.

We also offer rent collection as a standalone service where you manage the property, but we collect rent on your behalf.

Our property management service includes conducting visits to your property, both twice-a-year routine visits as well as ad hoc visits when required. We can also handle payments to third-parties in relation to your property, such as for property maintenance charges.

We handle any problems that may arise with the property using a team of trusted contractors to carry out all repairs. Each contractor we use is independent from us and we have no financial relationship with them. This ensures you get the lowest possible cost of repair.

Our Property Management service can also help you maintain up-to-date gas safety records, deal with your insurance company, and more.

Hiten was incredibly helpful and supportive as I went through a challenging sales process. He was proactive and willing to do whatever was necessary to get everything over the line. Would highly recommend.

Gino was extremely helpful and responsive. It was great how he really listened to what we needed and was able to advise us on how to close on a rental in a short timespan.

We worked with Gino. He was really professional and kind for us even though we were unusal to contract the property since it was our first house to live in London. He replies all the email as soon as he can.

Gino was personable and kept me informed throughout the tenancy arrangement process. The vetting service was slow and less competent than I would expect - but Gino kept me up to date on progress. This was reassuring as I had recently experienced a stressf ... Read More
