Letting Only - 3 weeks rent deducted from the 1st months rent (rent x 12/52 x 3)
Our Let Only Service is as detailed below. This service is only suitable should you wish to deal with the day to day running of your property yourself.
We will visit your property to advise you on the rental income achievable, and to answer any questions that you may have about renting and agree the most suitable service for you.
We will prepare details and advertise your property on the internet, our shop window and the local paper. We will also erect a “To Let” board if required.
Any additional advertising is at the request and expense of the landlord.
We endeavour to meet all prospective tenants to ascertain their suitability and of course, accompany all viewings of vacant properties.
Having found potentially suitable tenants we will obtain references from all applicable sources. These would include the following.

"I wanted to instruct a local independent agent to sell my house and that’s why I chose Gould & Harrison. From start to finish the whole team have kept me informed and been extremely helpful in all respects, even at anxious moments. A stressful experience has been far more pleasant and I thank you all for that."
