Depending on your situation, needs, requirements, and property, Regions Estates can help find the right solution for you.
Our Corporate Lettings service can offer you:
Longer secure tenancies
Our experience shows that our corporate tenants tend to be under long tenancies, meaning that they rent the perfect property for a longer than average time. This means more security and a consistent rental income for you.
Short term tenancies
On the contrary, we also have a number of corporate tenants in search of a property to rent for merely a few months. Such tenants are usually prepared to pay landlords a premium rate for such a privilege.
Direct rent payments from employers
It is not uncommon for the tenants’ employers or company to cover rental costs. This will ensure that you will continue to collect the rent on the stated day from a reputable source without having to worry about whether the rent will be received or not.
We take care of everything
Our friendly and efficient team at Victoria Knight will help you expedite everything from negotiations to the signing of the contract.
Total piece of mind
The helpful team at Regions Estates is ready to take care of everything, including the maintenance of the property during the tenancy agreement, meaning you will have very little to worry about once the contract is signed.
