We will collect all rent from tenants on your behalf and pay this into your account (minus fees and any expenses) on a monthly basis.
We will send you an itemised monthly statement, by post or email.
During a tenancy we perform a number of periodic inspections and we are also on hand to deal with any maintenance problems that may arise.
When new tenants move in they are supplied with a comprehensive inventory for checking and signing. We will conduct routine inspections during their tenancy and let you know the results. At the end of the tenancy, we conduct a ‘check-out’ so that the tenant can be held accountable for any missing or damaged items (beyond reasonable wear and tear).
We can deal with maintenance problems reported by the tenant, using our own tradespeople. Alternatively, if your property is managed by a factor we can refer relevant issues to them. In addition Littlejohns provides an emergency helpline for all landlords and tenants which operates round the clock 365 days of the year.
We provide a free consultation to give you the opportunity to find out more about our services and the best way to market your property. Why not contact us today to arrange an appointment?

We will also conduct all viewings by potential tenants on your behalf.
Once you have a prospective tenant, it is important to check that they will be able to fulfil all aspects of the tenancy agreement.
We will obtain two written references from each prospective tenant. If these prove satisfactory, we will confirm with them a date for the start of their tenancy. The tenant then pays us a deposit which we will refund on completion of the tenancy once we have established the property has been left in an acceptable condition.
