A great letting agent has much, much more to offer than simply setting up a tenancy. They can help landlords find the perfect tenant, perform credit checks, gather refer-ences, organise deposits, arrange viewings and compile inventories.

But did you know that there are a lot of extra valuable services they can offer you?


This is a key area where an agent can help. During a tenancy, they can identify the necessary maintenance and sort out whose responsibility it is, as well as organise contractors for you, often at discounted rates.

Helping in an emergency

In maintenance emergencies like a gas leak, letting agents will have access to professional, round-the-clock contractors to swoop in and save the day. They can also organise specialist insurances, to make sure that your property and tenants can stand well protected against the worst of problems, without hurting your pockets.

Knowing the law

A vital resource is a letting agent’s extensive knowledge of the law involved with being a landlord.

In a fast-paced industry that constantly evolves, their expertise is invaluable.

When it comes to collecting late rent or serving eviction notices, they can keep you informed of your rights, to make sure every-thing runs smoothly and legally.
