No Hassle Lettings Service

Let to Birmingham offers a comprehensive and professional viewing and lettings service. We will take all prospective tenants to view your property and will often arrange a multiple viewing to ensure that the property is let quickly. We are able to offer same day viewings for prospective tenants and are happy to arrange evening or weekend viewings as needed.

Once your property has been accepted at viewing we will arrange the letting and complete all of the necessary paperwork and tenancy agreement. We will also ensure that any Housing Benefit has been applied for, and that council tax and the utilities are notified.

Before your new tenant moves in we will take a full inventory, which we will go through with the tenant at letting.

Typically our tenancies are a 12 month Assured Shorthold Tenancy.
