Therefore - whether it is your principle home that you are considering letting or an investment property - choosing the right agent is crucial.

Renewal Fees are payable should the same tenant remain in occupation. Our Letting fees are reduced by 2% each year to a minimum of 4% + VAT. e.g If you choose the full management service you would pay 12% + VAT in the second year and 10% in the 3rd year.
