This service is for landlords that are happy to manage their property on a day to day basis but aren’t familiar with the lettings and referencing process. This service includes the Tenant Find service as well as full referencing of tenants, drawing up of contracts, handling of the deposit and arranging the tenants check-in pack.

We will conduct an initial viewing to give our opinion on the rental value and take professional photos ready to advertise the property on both our website and Rightmove we will also, where allowed erect a “to let” board in a prominent location.

Once we have agreed a rental price we will advertise your property and begin viewings, after any viewings take place we will report back to you with tenants feedback and send over any offers that are made on the property. Once you have accepted an offer we will take a holding deposit (capped at one weeks rent from the tenants) and begin the referencing process. We will update you throughout this process.

When referencing is complete we will draw up a contract for you to check over and then send this out to the tenants to sign. When we have a copy of the contract signed by tenants we will send this on for you to sign. Finally when we have a fully signed contract we will handover your new tenants to you and send all referencing information electronically. A handover email will be sent to the tenants as well making the move in process as smooth as possible.

This service is aimed towards landlords who like to be hands on with their properties but need help finding suitable tenants. We will do exactly that. We will market your property, conduct viewings, forward offers to you for your approval and once you are happy we will hand over all the relevant information for you to take over! Simple.

We will conduct an initial viewing to give our opinion on the rental value, agree on a rental price and take a set of keys to the property to be stored in our secure system. Professional photos can also be taken at this time. We will then advertise your property on both our website and our Rightmove Profile and erect a “to let” board where allowed in a prominent location.

We will pre-qualify prospective tenants via email and phone calls and arrange viewings. After any viewings take place we will report back to you with tenants feedback and send over any offers that are made on your property. Once you have accepted an offer and taken a holding deposit please inform us so that we can take the property offline and cancel any remaining viewings.

    After renting 3 different properties from Hopewell, I couldn't recommend them more. Max was always on the end of the phone if there was a problem and was quick to rectify.

    As tenants we’ve always found Hopewell to be very responsive whenever we have needed their assistance over the past 18
    months. They reply quickly to emails and are helpful and pleasant to interact with. We’ve just moved and wish our new property was also managed by them!
