Agency Agreements

Our terms of service

Due to the differing levels of service depending on the profile of property we manage, we have separate agency agreements depending on the service being offered – tenant find within the residential letting market, fully managed within the residential market, and fully managed within the student market.

Current clients

Our terms of business change from time to time. When they do we will contact you giving 90 days notice of changes. Our terms will be updated on the website at the beginning of the 90 day period so you can view them. You will not need to sign our new terms of business on change of contract unless requested to do so by us.

New Clients

For new landlords you can sign the appropriate service agreement online. You can also upload the documents we require before marketing for legal compliance.

Please note that due to the very high level of regulation, including university accreditation and selective/mandatory licensing that applies to the student HMO sector we do not offer a tenant find only service to new clients within the student market.

Tenant Find (“let only”) Services

Please note that due to the very high level of regulation, including university accreditation and selective/mandatory licensing that applies to the student HMO sector we do not offer a tenant find only service to new clients. This decision was made in light of the ongoing risk of license compliance for agents who are not the license holder and carry out a tenant find service and have no ongoing management functions.

As of 1st June 2018 we will only take on clients with a fully managed service.
