Why rent a managed property?
We manage most of the properties we let, which makes life much easier for you as a tenant should you experience a problem - like a broken heating system or a security issue. One of our property team will liaise with the landlords as soon as we know the problem, and seek their approval for the work to be carried out. Our maintenance department use only selected vetted contractors and we also have a 24-hour call-out service for emergencies. We also help you to discuss extending your tenancy or with returning your security deposit when you move out.
What's a guarantor?
Guarantor is a legal term for someone who is prepared to guarantee that you will pay the rent and comply with all the terms of the tenancy agreement. For instance, if you fail to pay the rent, or if you damage the property, the guarantor can be made to take your place and pay what is owed to the landlord. For this reason, your chosen guarantor will also be credit checked, for which a fee is payable. Most tenants ask a close relative to act as guarantor.
By choosing to rent a property from us, you can be sure that it confirms to legal requirements such as gas and electrical safety certificates, smoke alarms etc. And because all our staff have undergone CRB checks, you are also assured of your personal safety during house viewings.
