We currently offer a landlord referral scheme. If a referral from you then becomes a fully managed tenanted property, we will pay you £100 as a thank you!
All the owner of the property has to do, is advise us at the time of consultation that you referred them and once the tenant moves in, we will forward the money to you. If the landlord owns multiple properties it will be £100 per property rented and fully managed through us!

Over the past 3 years, the property market’s ‘supply crisis’ has seen price growth in the rental sector climb by 2.61% year-on-year. This comes as tenant demand is up by around 6%, while the number of rental properties available is 50% lower than a year ago.
And so far in 2022, activity hasn’t appeared to cool-off, as average rents have grown in price for the fifth consecutive month by 2.8%, with the average cost of a rental property in England currently totalling between £1,020 and £1,050 per month.
The highest rent increases are seen in the South West, where a sizeable 10% increase was recorded. The North East follows closely behind, despite offering some of the cheapest rentals in the country, where costs rose by 8% over the last month. The West Midlands is the only region showing evidence of a decrease, where a 2% price reduction was recorded.
June marked the fifth consecutive month of average rent prices on the rise in England, on the heels of a slight cool-down in costs over the winter months. However, June’s average prices still remain below the historical highs recorded in September 2021, when prices reached as much as £1,104 per property. Click image to read more
Tenancy deposit scheme have been around for more than a decade – but they can still be tricky to understand for tenants.
In this guide, we’ll explain everything you need to know about how the schemes work, the rules around them, your obligations as a tenant and what your landlord must do to stay compliant.
What is my tenancy deposit for?
Tenancy deposits are sums of money payable by tenants and used as security by landlords against costs or damage at the end of a tenancy.
Does my landlord have to take a deposit from me?
Landlords aren’t legally required to take a tenancy deposit, but it’s highly recommended and the vast majority do.
If your landlord is letting their property through an agent, they will always be required to take a deposit.
What is deposit protection?
If you sign an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST), your tenancy deposit must be protected in a deposit protection scheme, which is government-backed.
Deposit protection was introduced for all ASTs starting after April 5, 2007.
If you’re renting a property from a private landlord, your tenancy is an AST and it began after April 5, 2007, your deposit must be protected.
If your tenancy began before April 6, 2007 and you haven’t signed a new agreement since, your deposit is probably not protected and is not required to be by law.. click image to read more..
THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY..
MONEY – Renting your property is a good source of income. Getting a good rental yield will cover your mortgage and other bills you may face.
INVESTMENT – Hiring a Property Manager will look after your investment and ensure you are compliant with the ever-changing legislation.
BUILDING EQUITY – Not only are you receiving income every month, you are paying off your mortgage; in a few decades you will be the owner of a property someone else paid for
