LETTINGS SERVICES

Helping landlords to find excellent tenants, and tenants to find suitable accommodation, the company provides an exceptional property management service.

Landlords are offered both full management and also let only packages both at very competitive rates and no VAT. 

We are unique in the fact that landlords who opt for full management are offered a choice in the control of their money and rent collection.  First Bay Lettings will collect the rent each month and then transfer the balance to the landlords account or for those landlords who wish to have more control over their money we are happy to arrange the monthly rental to be paid direct to the landlord and then invoice for our services.

Tenants are offered the reassurance of a 24 hour contact number for emergencies.

All deposits are lodged within DPS and full copies of the submissions are available to both tenants and landlords at any time.
