Our lettings department continues to go from strength to strength; run by Lucy at our Tettenhall office. We offer free rental assessments and can provide advice on realistic, achievable rents and safety requirements. All rental properties are beautifully presented on our own website and advertised on Rightmove and OnTheMarket.com. Our three-tier management service offers options for every landlord and every property, including tenant-finding, rent collection, and full lettings management. We can source tenants to match your specific requirements, with complete reference checks performed by a professional referencing company, and our independent inventory service and rental guarantee insurance are designed to offer total peace of mind. As a team we have links with corporate and sporting professionals such as Jaguar Landrover, Wolves, West Brom, Aston Villa, etc.

We also take references on applications. These can be any combination taken from the information provided in the application form. (We will require two items of proof of address i.e. Driving license, passport and bank statement or utility bill)

Rent / deposits should be paid in cash or bank transfer. Please note that cheques are only acceptable with our specific prior agreement and 7 working days must be allowed for clearance of funds.
