This service is for Landlords who want to make the decisions with the ease and comfort of not having to worry about all of the legalities. It is as simple as handing over the keys and letting us do the rest. The Crossmeads "Fully Managed" service has been designed to enable Landlords to fully outsource the letting and management of their investment properties. Crossmeads will advise on tenancy law, advertise the property, conduct all viewings, provide tenant referencing services, establish an assured shorthold tenancy, move the tenants into the property, collect the rent each month, providing a full statement of account to the Landlord, periodically inspect the property and have day to day responsibility for the smooth management of the tenancy.
Below is a list of what is included under our Fully Managed Service:

We will provide advice on the latest tenancy laws and safety regulations that Landlords are legally bound by prior to renting out their property.
