At Turners, our aim is to make the business of being a landlord as simple and carefree as possible, whether you are an experienced landlord or dipping you toe into the business for the first time. We feel it’s important to offer a service tailored to your particular requirements rather than working to a set process as many other agents tend to, thereby maximising the potential of your valuable investment.
Whether it be LET ONLY, RENT COLLECTION or a more involved FULL MANAGEMENT service, we offer the experience and knowhow to achieve the best possible rent from the right tenant in the shortest timeframe.
We are members of ARLA Propertymark which means we meet higher industry standards than the law demands. Our experts undertake regular training to ensure they are up to date with best practice and complex legislative changes so that they can offer you the best advice. We are also backed by a Client Money Protection scheme which guarantees that your money is protected
Of course it is very important to choose an agent who has that knowhow and experience to find you the right tenant, but ultimately the decision will come down to what rent can be achieved and what the agent will charge. We would be happy to meet you at your property or in our office to discuss the rental potential and here at Turners we believe in being transparent on what we would charge you.
Our fees are fully inclusive and there are NO HIDDEN CHARGES as we believe that it would be misleading to advertise a fee to get your instruction, only to add fees for tenancy agreements, deposit registration or even charging for a percentage for the arrangement of any works that may need to be carried out, all of which seem to be charged by most other agents.
Our charges are as follows:
SET UP FEE:
£300 inc vat
