When you place your property in our hands and ask us to find you a tenant, we know there is a lot of trust involved.  We want to repay that trust by ensuring we find you the right person. Someone who will treat your home with the respect it deserves.


To achieve this, we make sure we reach as many people as possible. The more people who know your property is available, the more likely you are to find that perfect match.


We are also here to advise you on your legal obligations as a Landlord and ensure there are no delays in getting the property ready for a tenant. Gas Safe certificates, smoke alarms, Energy Performance Certificates and electrical tests. Just some of the steps we take to protect you.


A comprehensive Internet and social media campaign will begin as soon as you instruct us. We don’t hang around and we don’t expect your property will either. Rightmove, Zoopla and Primelocation are the first choices for many tenants looking to move. We advertise on all of them.


Our prominent window display enjoys an abundance of potential tenants walking by and we want them to stop and see your property. We have invested in the latest LED illuminated displays to get your home noticed, both day and night.


We produce highly informative brochures with both internal and external colour photos.


Every tenant we introduce to your home will be stringently credit checked and referenced to give you peace of mind. To further protect your interests, we will discuss insurances to secure your income and your home.


Now you have seen the professional approach we take when letting your home. The only thing you need to decide is which of our tailor-made packages suits your needs:


Introducing a tenant:

  • A package designed for pro-active landlords that want to be involved in the day to day dealings of the property. 

Introduction and rent collection:

  • Happy to deal with the day to day maintenance of the property but feel uncomfortable discussing money? Don’t worry, many do and you are exactly the type of Landlord that will benefit from this service as we take all the financial stress off of your shoulders.

 Fully managed let:

  • The choice of many Landlords.  Sit back and let Stephen Lane Estate Agents take care of everything for you. With regular inspections and arranging all maintenance of the property, it is no wonder that this is the most popular choice.
