  • An initial visit to the property to appraise and provide an indication of the likely rent achievable, along with any recommendations to the landlord for improvements which could help the property achieve a faster let or a higher market value.
  • Collect photographs and information on the property in order to advertise (link to advertising page) it to our best ability, to in turn attract as many interested parties as possible.
  • Advertise the property, via to-let boards, in the office and on websites, such as Belvoir’s own, Property Pal, Zoopla and Rightmove.
