Tenant information and fees

Properties let under our fully-managed ‘Gold’ services means we look after everything on the Landlords behalf. From finding the tenant to moving out and all that goes in between.

With properties let under our Silver ‘Let-Only’ service we are employed by the landlord to find tenants, complete contract paperwork, and monies taken are paid over to them. Unless homes4u manages the property on behalf of the owner, we are not party to the tenancy agreement, and do not have an ongoing relationship with the tenancy.

We are required by law to disclose all charges payable should you take a property with us to ensure that you are fully informed of the costs involved before you make any decisions.
