There are many reasons why a property owner / investor / landlord would decide to enter the rental market. The finding of a tenant is often just a small step in a successful letting. There are many things to consider, from legal issues and tenant referencing to gas certificates and ongoing maintenance of the property.Of course once your tenant has moved in, you will want the remainder of the tenancy to run smoothly. Whether it is routine repairs and maintenance or an emergency in the middle of the night. Here at F1rst Move our expert property management team are there to deal with this for you and take on the day to day management as well as any hassle that could occur, allowing you to sit back and reap the rewards, stress free. At F1rst Move we like to keep it simple, fair and transparent. This is why we offer two types of service shown below.
