Letting a Property through Oliver Miles Estate Agents

What do we do?

We offer a tenant finding service providing property owners an efficient service at a reasonable cost.

We aim to relieve you of the responsibility and aggravation of finding suitable Tenants. However, we do not manage properties but we have a close association with a local maintenance company who are able to deal with most property matters including the taking of inventories, schedule of condition etc, if required.

All lettings will be advertised on Zoopla, Oliver Miles website, our window display and 'To Let' boards (if agreed by landlord) at the property.

Our letting service includes:

INITIAL APPRAISAL: Appraising the properties letting potential and rental value.

MARKETING THE PROPERTY: Via window display, website, Zoopla and local papers.

REFERENCING POTENTIAL TENANTS: For landlords’ protection through Homelet, we can offer a comprehensive referencing and credit check service.

VIEWINGS Accompanied viewings with potential Tenants.
