As the landlord, you will be expected to liaise with tenants regarding the inventory, arranging periodic inspections and any repair issues with the property. This includes all problems that occur day or night. Emergency calls will be your responsibility.

Ideal for landlords who require minimal support from a letting agency, our Let Only Service includes basic property management, without the added benefits of our consultancy, tenant liaison and ongoing inspection services.
