We can advise you on what today’s renters really want from their home including:

• Transport links, local amenities and the feel of an area
• Modern fixtures and up-to-date technology
• An understanding landlord

Older properties and period features will be an attraction for many renters, but you don’t want your property to look tired or run down. A quick lick of paint can freshen up a room and provide a neutral backdrop for more ornate features
