Fully Managed

Full Management relieves you, as the landlord, of all the day-to-day hassle as we’re the main point of contact with the tenant. Regular inspections not only ensure that we can spot any maintenance problems and other potential issues before they become serious or cause damage, but regular accurate reports of the property condition gives a landlord reassurance and helps reduce the risk of disputes at a later date.

Monthly Management Charge: 12% of rent inc VAT (minimum fee £102)

Set Up Fee: £300 (inc VAT)
