Property Management

Property Management in London and the South East

Being a landlord can be a full-time job, and one which comes with stress and legal and financial obligations.   Most probably, you already have a full-time job and need someone to oversee the whole lettings management process, whether you let a single property or a portfolio of investment properties, not only can we let your property we can manage your tenancies as well.

Having a letting agent professionally manage your property often adds value to your rental investment, as more and more tenants prefer rental accommodation under this arrangement.   Independent property management removes ‘personal interests’ from negotiations and can lead to amicable solutions being reached more quickly.   Some corporate tenants even insist on a managed property and will not consider anything else.

Whatever your property, a studio flat or a large family home, each property is carefully looked after as though it were our own.   By letting a property with Crompton Estates you’ll benefit from our vast local knowledge and experience and our extensive market coverage.

We offer a complete service to landlords, from the initial marketing of your property, vetting prospective tenants, and the day-to-day management of your property once it is tenanted.   We can accompany all viewings, and our helpful staff will guide you through the process making sure you are informed of progress at every stage.

Once a prospective tenant is found, they are carefully checked and only when we are totally satisfied will we recommend the landlord proceed.   And after finding you a tenant we look after them and you throughout the tenancy.   We can arrange maintenance, repairs or redecoration on your behalf.   All our tradesmen have been vetted for reliability and expertise and understand our expectations and those of our clients.
