Within our Gold Service we are happy to assist in the organisation of tradesmen, liaise with landlord/tenant on any matter and organise quotes for work need etc., acting upon the landlords instruction
We do not provide inventories or check out/check in but can organise these with a professional company on your behalf should you so wish. We would highly recommend that you have an inventory carried out as this would be very important in the unlikely event you have to go to arbitration at the end of the contract. Of course, you can do your own inventory but you would be advised to add video or photographic evidence to your inventory.
Management – We do have the option of full management – details on request
