Handpicking the right tenant

We work closely with leading tenancy referencing specialists to ensure we pick the right tenant. We carry out comprehensive credit, affordability, employer checks as well as accommodation references on all prospective tenants to give you peace of mind that your property is in safe hands.
Under Section 22 of the Immigration Act 2014, from the 1 February 2016, all landlords in England must conduct Right to Rent checks for all new tenancies to determine whether any occupiers aged 18 and over have the right to live in the UK legally. As part of the referencing process, a tenant's Right to Rent in England will be verified.

TENANTS PREFER MANAGED
Tenants prefer managed properties

Research shows that more and more tenants expect a professional management service. Previous bad experiences with landlords and the reassurance that a reputable agent is looking after their home means more and more tenants opt for managed properties.
