If there are any problems on behalf of the tenant’s request of the property, we will be sure to ask you first before doing anything.
Then, we will draw up a tenancy agreement which will be the contract, which then sets out exactly what the terms of your contract are with your tenant, including any special requirements you have/expect from your tenants. We will be sure to send you a copy of this agreement if you request, for you to look at and make sure your tenant signs it.

Moreover, at the end of the tenancy, we will ensure to carry another inspection at the end of the tenancy to check that nothing is missing or damaged.

We will cut spare keys and give tenants a key in case of any problems or emergencies.
