Landlord services

Most of our landlords have busy lives and that is why they trust us to manage their property as per their instructions.

At KT Residential we never forget that the landlord is the client! We are an owner run, independent & local agent. We have built strong relations with our existing landlords and they use ourselves for one simple reason: We do what we say and we know what we are doing. At the same time we operate a professional service and are only prepared to do business with honest & professional landlords. We offer a flexible service and are sure that if you give us the opportunity you will not be disappointed. Please contact us to discuss the services you require and how we can meet your specific requirements.

A personal touch

We know all our properties well and don’t simply send out contractors when a tenant reports a problem! We visit the property personally and as soon as possible, then when the problem has been correctly identified we will either speak to the landlord to discuss the options or contact the relevant contractor dependent on your instructions.

If you decide to instruct us and are unhappy for any reason we offer a peace of mind money back guarantee. After the first three months if you are not happy with the service you have received we will refund any fees you have paid and hand the property back to the landlord or an agent!

Our services include; finding & referencing tenants, advice on maximizing your returns based on our knowledge and experience, rent collection services, excellent value property maintenance services & full property management.

A smart move

Landlord Fees
