Our consultant will advise you on the best marketing strategy specific to your property in accordance with the market conditions, and may suggest an open day or block viewing to maximise interest.

6.Honest feedback

We find that prospective tenants are comfortable being open and honest to a straight-talking, unbiased consultant. We then relay this information to you in update calls, so you can make as informed a decision as possible. Needless to say, we have numerous checks and a vetting procedure in place to minimise the chances of a problematic tenant to slim to none.

7.Offer and acceptance stage

Upon receipt of an offer, we will notify you at the earliest, informing you of the situation in full, providing you with a profile of the tenant as well as financial status. Any conditions, or potential complications will be explained from the outset to ensure the let proceeds smoothly, minus the stress of course.
