Services

We understand that one-size doesn’t fit all. From our 20 years in the industry, we know that each landlord is different. So with that in mind, we’ve devised 2 very clear products that you can take when letting through The Living Room. For general use, this will cover most people, but if your needs are even more specific, then why not pop in for a chat and we can talk it over. This is your portfolio that we’re talking about, and we want to make sure that the service we deliver is exactly what you want and need – whether it be using your own tradesmen for jobs, utilising your British Gas Homecare plan, or making sure that your rent is in your account by midday on a specific day, talk to us and we’ll always do our absolute best to deliver.
