Landlord Services

Growing Your Property Investment

Being a landlord can be fraught with risk. From rogue tenants to an increasingly difficult legislative landscape, it can sometimes feel like the odds are against you. We know how it feels: We were landlords before we were agents. After years of poor service from disinterested high street agents, we knew we could do better.

When creating our company, we pledged to put our clients first. We didn’t stick to standard practice in the industry – we re-thought everything. Our mission was simple: To offer unrivalled guidance and advice, to be meticulous in our approach and to nurture our client’s investments so that they would grow.

We started working with the most difficult of properties, in the most difficult of areas. Some of our first clients were landlords who were at their wits’ end, struggling with non-paying tenants and spiralling expenses. In guiding them towards better outcomes, we developed our reputation for defying the odds.

Tailored Service

We know that no two people are alike. The same is true when it comes to properties.

In terms of lettings, one size does not fit all. Although we offer tiered pricing guides, our services are not sold as packages. Care is taken to tailor the services we offer to match each landlord. We will always endeavour to be flexible and sympathetic to your current situation and your wishes regarding your property.

  • First time landlord?
    Draw from our decades of experience in the Preston private rental market. We will advise you on your legal obligations and best practices, how to best prepare and present your property for viewing, and how to maximise and protect your income.
  • Experienced professional?
    We can seamlessly integrate into your workflow. Have special requirements for the AST agreement? No problem. Want us to protect the deposit for you and then transfer it to your preferred scheme account? Just say the word. Want to meet the applicants in person? We’ll make the arrangements. We can promise you a completely smooth handover for any tenant that we find for you.
  • Live abroad?
    We’ll liaise with HMRC’s Non-Resident Landlord’s Scheme on your behalf
  • Own a property in partnership?
    We’ll make sure to obtain necessary consents from all parties involved and keep them appraised of any developments.

Depending on the services you require and the size of your portfolio, you may qualify for a discount on the prices listed above. Please call in to discuss.

Free Property Transfers

Yes. Free. Completely.

You shouldn’t feel trapped with your current managing agent. If they’re not performing, give us a call and we will transfer your property to our management service for free. Whether the set-up includes the drafting of new paperwork and the re-serving of prescribed information, liaising with your current agent or carrying out new inventories, the price is still the same: Completely free.

Of course, this offer also extends to self-managing landlords with sitting tenants who would like us to take over. Give yourself a break. Give us a call.
