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!

But now Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick has announced that leaseholders in blocks of flats with cladding should be supported to buy, sell or re-mortgage their homes after a deal with major lenders to pave the way to ending the need for EWS1 forms.
It comes following expert advice that the forms should no longer be needed on buildings below 18 metres. Click image to read more
