Free Market Appraisal
Ideally the best way to fully understand your requirements and appraise your property for rental is to meet in person at your rental property at a mutually convenient time. If you live abroad and this is not possible alternative arrangements can be made. During our meeting I will be delighted to provide a realistic market appraisal, provide information on current market conditions and offer advice on all aspects of becoming a landlord. I will guide you through your responsibilities as a landlord and keep you informed of any new government legislation.
