Full Property Management Service:

Our property management service is an all encompassing service that extends from minor repair work all the way through to more major repairs.

We have access to contractors from plumbers, electricians, carpenters to gardeners, roofers and fencers. Whatever the requirement, we are able to provide free no obligation quotes and no work will be undertaken without your say so.

We carry out regular inspections of your property and will report back as per our terms of business.

It is worth noting that even if The Property Spot did not find your tenant, we are able to take over management of a property mid tenancy. We have done so in the past for landlords who have rented privately or through other agents.

Tenant Find Only:

We will find a suitable tenant and they will be subject to the same reference and credit checks as above.

Their deposit will be registered via the Letting Protection Service (LPS) .

Once we are Instructed:

We will arrange to go out and take details and photographs of the property. Your property will be presented to a wide audience of tenants our own web site www.thepropertyspot.co.uk and the Northern Ireland property portal www.propertypal.co.uk.

A 'To Let' board is still a strong advertising tool and we would always advocate having a board.

Tenant Found:

Once we have found the right tenant for your property, we will ensure that all the necessary checks are carried out, then liaise with you with regard to our recommendation. When all the monies are paid, paperwork is signed and keys are collected, we will provide you with a statement of account.

We have been managing properties for over 15 years and have the knowledge and experience to look after your property as if it was one of our own.
