The Credible Alternative

Value For Money & No Hidden Costs

Whether you are a first time landlord, letting a single property or own a large investment portfolio our skilled and experienced team will deliver a first class customer focused service.

We will advise you at all stages and on all aspects of the lettings process, from preparing the property for rental to guiding you through the increasingly complex legal and legislative requirements.

- Let Service 6% (5% plus vat) of Intitial Twelve Month Term

Many of our competitors maximise their profits by charging their landlords a ‘premium’. You can rely on us to provide a comprehensive and professional service at rates our landlords testify to be reasonable and fair.

Our letting service includes:
- Advertising including in-house photographer
- Arranging & accompanying all viewings
- Comprehensive tenant referencing & credit checks
- Drawing up detailed tenancy agreement
- Registering of deposit with the DPS
- Organise EPC, gas check, inventory & cleaning

We do not charge for our comprehensive tenancy agreement, nor do we charge for registering the security deposit.


No Renewal Fees

We consider renewal fees to be unfair as do the majority of Landlords. To pay an agent a percentage of the rent in the second year and beyond for little work is unjustifiable, this is why it is our policy not to charge landlords any renewal fees.

As the tenancy end date approaches, we will be in touch to discuss renewal options and assist in negotiating rents and the issuing of new contracts.


Local Independent Offering Flexible Payment Terms

We’re a local family run business with extensive and intimate knowledge of the local market . . . as a small business we value your custom and cannot afford to take it for granted.

With the landlord in mind, we offer flexible and advantageous payment terms. With the benefit of our Free Rent Collection Service, you have the option to spread our letting fee over the initial twelve month term of the tenancy.


1st Class Customer Service

We understand the importance of finding the right tenant for the right price and we are geared and focused solely on Lettings and Property Management.

Developing long term customer relationships is the cornerstone of our business and we have established a reputation based on traditional values of integrity and honesty.


Accountability & Redress

We are members of the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA) and The Property Ombudsman (TPOS), we voluntarily follow the strict Codes of Practise and Rules of Conduct laid down by these professional bodies, helping to maintain and raise industry standards.

- By using an ARLA agent you are guaranteed:

- That our agency is covered by a Client Money Protection Scheme
- That we hold professional indemnity insurance
- That you have a route to redress should something go wrong
- That you will be dealing with a qualified and trained agent who can give up to date advice and guidance


Property Management

Urban Letting’s Property Management is available as a standalone service or in conjunction with our lettings service.

We will act as a professional intermediary between you and the tenant, taking the day-to-day running of a property out of the your hands.

Our trusted team of contractors solve a range of maintenance issues and our management department will professionally handle tenant queries, leaving you to spend your spare time as you wish without the hassle or concern of making yourself available.

It is our responsibility to ensure the property is well maintained and when issues arise, as they invariably do, we will manage the situation efficiently and effectively, leaving you comfortable in the knowledge that your property is indeed in safe hands.

We are committed to running an environmentally friendly business and are working towards a paperless office – we use up to date technology to allow the tenancy agreement to be signed electronically saving on time and the environment.
