How to apply

You can contact us to arrange a free appointment with one of our negotiators by:

After you've had an appointment, our negotiator will inspect your property advise you on the rent levels you could set. If your property passes the inspection, we'll set you up on the Direct Lettings Service.

We'll call you to arrange a viewing with a tenant. If both of you are happy after the viewing, you can arrange a tenancy.

If either of you aren't happy after the viewing, we'll arrange the next viewing with a different tenant as soon as possible.

Deposit Guarantee Service

Tenants you're matched with can also use our Deposit Guarantee Service in place of a normal cash deposit.
