Complete marketing:

It is vital for you as a landlord that your property gains maximum interest from all prospective tenants. This will inevitably increase your rental value and the standard of tenant you are looking for. Your City Property markets all its properties on the biggest search portals in the UK allowing the highest exposure possible to attract various types of tenants. Once instructed, your property will be immediately exposed to potential tenants through our unique marketing tools.

Finding the most suitable tenants:

Our team of consultants are highly trained in qualifying and selecting the appropriate tenants to view your property. All our tenants are fully referenced through recognised, independent referencing companies.
It is after all your property so please feel free to specify any requirements, such as requesting to briefly meet the tenants before commencement of the lease.

Improving the rent of your property!

We also give you feedback from all our viewings and advise you where possible on any necessary changes ensuring you will gain the most out of your property.
A certain feature of your property may have an adverse effect on a tenantís decision in renting. Whether this is the existing decoration or layout of the furniture it can sometimes be overlooked by the landlord. During the visit valuation, if applicable, our highly trained staff can help recommend alternative solutions.

Financial and Legal Insurance Cover's:

More and more of our Landlords are realising the security associated with insurance and guarantees. A property is probably your biggest investment, so it makes sense that you are looking for the best possible protection.
We offer exclusive Rental and Legal Insurance Policies, to give our landlords the full peace of mind when renting their property.
Our experienced valuers will explain these insurance policies at the point of valuation. You could also request our Lettings team to run through the policies over the phone or send you the relevant documentation.

Maximise Income:

We carefully value your property after the visit valuation and of course take into consideration what you as a landlord are hoping to achieve. Once all the information has been obtained at the valuation, two of our senior consultants will discuss and weigh up the best strategy to maximise your income. This will then be communicated to you as we agree the rental value based on research and local knowledge.
The more we know about you the more we can help. If you are considering letting your property but unsure due to financial or other concerns, we would advise you to speak with one of our senior and more experienced members.

Property Reservation Fee:

Once an offer has been made we will present you with the full details of that offer, including any specific requirements. We will only contact you once the Property Reservation Fee has been paid by the potential tenants.
You will then have all the necessary information to make the right decision on that offer.

Rental Deposit Scheme:

We encourage all of our landlords to register the deposit in one of the three Tenant Deposit Schemes that are approved by the government.

Property Management:

More of our Landlords are opting for this service. Our feedback indicates the main concern associated with property is a lack of security and consistency on the income. Our Property Managers oversee the full process of the tenancy taking the strain and uncertainty out of the picture.
We have the respect and passion to achieve the high standard of professional service your long term investment deserves. Please speak to our Lettings team to get some more in-depth information.
