Investors in properties look forward to returns on their investments, and one of the main sources of such returns is income from letting. This income source can be threatened if due diligence is not carried out on the character and capacity of prospective tenants. We undertake on your behalf vetting of the intending tenants so as to mitigate the associated risk of default in payment of rents on your properties as and when due, thus giving you some level of comfort and reliability on the projected returns on your investment.
For upcoming and upwardly mobile working class young men and women, securing decent accommodation are often times challenging considering the initial cash outlay required. Apartment sharing thus become an attractive way out for paired prospective “flat mates” who on one hand share the required financial commitment, and on the other have optimal utilization of the facilities, especially the rooms in the apartment. This is similar to the concept of co-location that has become very popular in the Telecoms industry. It goes without saying that our responsibility in this regard is to find and pair compatible potential flat mates, after undertaking the necessary background security checks and other essential profiling.

Before letting your property, it is important to fully understand the rights and responsibilities of being a landlord. It’s also vital to know what you can expect from a letting agent who manages the property for you.
A typical scenario: three months into a tenancy on your property that is managed by a letting agent, the tenants refuses to pay their rents. The questions in this situation are many. Can the tenants refuse to pay their rent and get away with it? How can you successfully claim the unpaid rent from the tenants or the letting agency? Are you obliged to retain the services of the letting agency? What are you liable for? Legislation protecting tenant rights can appear a real hurdle, but this need not be the case.

With millions of students heading off to university every year, we realised that an easy, reliable, and smart way to find and book student housing is required. In student housing, “one size fits all” never works. We offer you a variety of options such as choosing an entire place, a shared apartment, or a private room – whatever suits your needs. We ensure that all properties listed with us are comfortable, welcoming, and conducive for a student’s lifestyle. A Shared Room has two or more people sleeping in separate beds in the same room. Any additional living space like living room, kitchen and bathroom are shared with other rooms. In a Private Room you have a private bedroom, other facilities are shared with other rooms. If you rent the Entire Place, you will get a fully self-contained property. This means that all your living space as well as cooking and bathing facilities are only for you and you don’t have to share with anyone.
No secrets. We promise. You only pay the rent, the whole rent, and nothing but the rent.

Because of this, we have developed an extremely customer-centric service delivery that revolves around communication, quality service delivery, and value for money.

Our Property Managers handle client funds diligently, and we carefully manage the quality of all contracts against tried and tested specifications and high quality benchmarks.
When we win the mandate for a new property, we undertake a thorough review of the condition of the building and the standard of the services being provided. Competitive tendering of regular services and the creation and implementation of a long term maintenance plan ensures that items requiring immediate attention and long term planning are addressed accordingly during this period.
