Lettings services

Depending on how involved you wish to be with your tenants and whether you hold a licence to let with Rent Smart Wales, you can choose between a rent guarantee, fully managed or let only lettings services.

Since November 2016, all landlords must be registered and if you are managing the property yourself, you must also be licenced with Rent Smart Wales.

For all new managed rental properties instructed, we are currently offering 3 months free management fees and no letting set up fee. Please use code LA101 to claim this offer. For full terms and conditions, please click here.
