David Brown & Co try to take the stress and hassle out of letting and managing a property.  We appreciate it is either you own home or an investment and therefore you need a safe and reliable service to protect your property and income.

We offer a personalised service and can offer either a fully managed service or a letting only service. 


We will inspect your property and initially provide a no obligation rental valuation.  We will then

·       Prepare full particulars in colour with photos and floor plans

·       Advertise the property on our own website and OntheMarket

·       Accompany potential tenants on any viewings

·       Obtain references and finance credit checks through a 3rd party referencing company

·       Prepare a tenancy agreement

·       Provide an inventory summarising the condition of the property

·       Organise a valid EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) for the property

·       Register the tenant’s deposit in a government approved Tenant Deposit Scheme

·       Notify the Council of new tenant details for Council Tax

·       Read the various utility meters and advise the necessary companies

·       Collect the rent monthly and transfer the money into your bank account and prepare a quarterly statement

·       Inspect the property periodically and report findings to the landlord

·       Arrange for any necessary repairs to be carried out

·       Issuing the necessary legal notice to bring the tenancy to an end
