The Key Place Managed Service 1st Nov 2015

Landlords, what do we do for our monthly management fee? A lot more than you would think! Our fully managed package offers a service which covers all aspects from finding and securing good tenants, to managing your property, dealing with emergencies and taking the hassle out of letting. All you have to do is sit back and let the income arrive in your bank account. It’s an ideal service for landlords who would rather not deal with tenants directly, preferring all aspects to be handled by an agent. It is the hassle free option!
