As Landlords ourselves we know how important it is to be able to rely on your Letting Agent to give you peace of mind in balancing rental profit with contented tenants. Sometimes being a middle-man is not an easy task. We try very hard to achieve customer satisfaction for both our landlords and our tenants. It is a tribute to our staff that we have such success in keeping everyone happy most of the time!
We have three levels of service:
A. Tenant Introduction
Suitable for Landlords living locally who are experienced in letting legislation and the complexities of property management. Once Pembertons has acquired a satisfactory Tenant and completed the initial formalities the Landlord takes over for the duration of the Tenancy.
B. Rent Collection
Suitable for Landlords living locally and able to maintain their own property. The Tenant will contact the Landlord directly for all maintenance and general enquiries.
C. Full Management
Suitable for Landlords not living locally, unfamiliar with letting legislation and the complexities of property management. Pembertons will fully manage the tenancy.
Please call, or e-mail us, for more information and our fee structure.
