We offer a full range of services to landlords, from tenant finding only to rent collection, full management and bespoke services.
We are landlords ourselves and understand that you need confidence that your agent will look after your property as well (or better) than you would.
Every property is different and let for a variety of reasons. We cater for all situations and ensure your property is well looked after throughout the duration of a tenancy. Property remains a popular long-term investment option and many ‘career or accidental landlords’ trust us to manage their properties and find them tenants.
With a strong local presence and a fantastic reputation where over 100% of both landlords and tenants would recommend us (based on 2015 customer feedback) we endeavour to provide you with a successful tenancy which is driven by quality tenants. We’ll present you with qualified, vetted applicants and work hard to avoid void periods, whilst keeping you updated on the minefield of legal regulations surrounding lettings.
We started our own property business by being landlords, so we are brilliantly placed to know that ultimately you are looking for a great tenant. Cobb Amos will work tirelessly to find you one that will:
When we value your property we tell you how much it’s worth in a “market appraisal”. However, at Cobb Amos we also really value it. That is, we know how much it means to you. Financially, property is usually your greatest investment. Some properties that are let out are or previously were a family property so emotionally they often hold many memories. We really do care about you and your property and will take every care in looking after your property transaction.
