Rental Valuation & Inspection
Our experienced staff will initially provide you with a free, no obligation rental valuation. We will be able to provide advice to landlords on decor, furnishings, health and safety issues, any maintenance recommendations and presentation of the property.
We will immediately match your property with our large database of actively looking, vetted tenants. We will email and SMS potential tenants in addition to telephoning them enabling us to arrange viewings almost instantly. We will then accompany property viewings.
Your property will be displayed in our vibrant window displays, situated in a prominent high street location. We will erect one of our highly visible lettings boards. We also advertise on all of the top property websites including Rightmove, Zoopla, Prime Location, Gumtree and davidconway.co.uk amongst others.
You will receive your very own log in on ‘mydavidconway’ where you are able to see viewings, feedback, offers and website ‘hits’ at any time, 24/7.

Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST)
We will provide you and the tenants with a legally binding Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement. You and the tenant will have sight of this prior to signing, enabling you to add/amend clauses if you so wish.
It is a legal requirement that we or yourself retain the tenants' deposits in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Scheme for Regulated Agents (TDSRA) and account for this at the end of the tenancy in accordance with the rules of the Deposit Scheme.
We will provide the tenant with your bank details to enable them to set up a standing order to pay their rent monthly directly into your account.
