Piney Estate Agents pride ourselves on providing a personal and professional service.

Our mission is to:

Piney Estate Agents offers two levels of Letting Service, Let only and Full Management. Whichever you choose you will find our service professional and cost-effective.

Which service should I use?

The option you choose may depend on various factors ranging from the properties you let, their location and how hands-on you are as a landlord.

If you only let one or two properties and can manage the property yourself, you may just need help finding tenants. This is the most cost effective option.

A fully managed service is ideal when the property is far away from where you live or you let a number of properties. Another major consideration is the type of property.

Many buy to let investors in the HMO student market opt for the full management service due to the heavy legislative laws in play and the importance of remaining compliant and up to date with everything.

In conclusion this choice is at the individual's discretion and our staff will be happy to guide you and answer any queries you may have on the topic.
