Finding & securing the best tenants

Our rental team are renowned for securing tenants of the highest quality.

Our well connected network

Our rental team source the best tenants by working closely with leading relocation agents, our in-house property search team and industry contacts, in addition to advertising on property portals and working alongside partner letting agents. 

A single team

Unlike the majority of the industry, our lettings specialists work side by side with our property managers, which means they’re incentivised not only to secure a tenant but to make sure it’s a tenant who will be reliable and look after the property.

Rigorous vetting process

We provide one of the most rigorous tenant vetting process in the industry to ensure the right tenant profile and for you to feel comfortable with who will be living in your property. We personally interview every tenant alongside thorough referencing undertaken by the leading external reference agency, before the signing of a lease.

An experienced team

Each of our property managers has a minimum 10 years’ experience  and technical expertise maintaining and managing all types of properties from period conversions to new build developments.

Solutions, not problems

As well as carrying out regular inspections and arranging proactive servicing, we handle all reactive maintenance, bringing you solutions not problems, with a clear recommended course of action and carefully vetted contractors.

Protecting you as a landlord

We ensure you and your property are fully compliant with regulatory requirements, safety certificates, deposit protection and serving legal notices correctly. In addition, we provide closely monitored rent collection, regular statements and proactive financial control. Our landlords have peace of mind that they are professionally represented.
