It is that time of year when we start to get a bit of time on our hands to review what are plans are for the next year. After getting to know and work closely with Tony and Chris at LettingSupermarket.com we did a small scale Victor Kiam (if you remember he liked the razor so much he bought Remington). We now own 26% of LettingSupermarket.com so if you use them to manage your properties you will also be supporting Property118.com in the process 🙂
We just don’t know where you can get the same level of service from a fully bonded ARLA agent with client money protection for the same costs. Feedback from our readers who have tried them has been exceptional, that’s what persuaded us to acquire share in the business.
Tony and Chris Sheldon started LettingSupermarket.com with the idea of offering the same personal service as high street letting agents, which online services struggle to maintain, but still strip away the costs involved with running high street offices.
Even if you are thinking of self managing would it really be worth the hassle of trying to organise everything yourself and could you be certain that you would be able to do it for less?
I have added two examples of different levels of support they provide and it would definitely be worth contacting Chris or Tony via the form below so they can give you a call and have a chat.

If you want the letting agents to do viewings, periodic property checks and manage all maintenance issues the monthly fee is £24.99 + VAT.

The rental guarantee policy, which is underwritten by a fully FSA accredited insurance company, pays out if the tenants fall more than a month in arrears and thereafter for any further missed payments until vacant possession of the property is recovered.
