Letting Your Property

Ystradgynlais has seen a surge in demand for rental properties in recent years, thanks to its convenient location, natural beauty, and welcoming community. The town is well-connected to major cities like Swansea and Cardiff via excellent transport links, making it an ideal base for commuters. However, there is a lot to take into consideration when becoming a landlord. Let us help you through the process.

Our Property Letting Services

We offer two tiers to cater to your specific needs.

If you prefer to manage your property yourself but need assistance in finding a tenant, our Contract Holder introduction Service is perfect for you. We’ll help you find a suitable tenant, carry out necessary background checks, and prepare the necessary contracts. Our team will also conduct a thorough inventory of your property before check-in to ensure everything runs smoothly.

For those who want to sit back and relax, our full management service has got you covered. We’ll take care of everything from finding a tenant to conducting regular inspections and handling any necessary repairs. You won’t have to worry about a thing. Our team conducts inspections every three months to ensure your tenant’s safety and your property’s condition.

As a landlord in Wales, you must register your details and property address with Rentsmart Wales to comply with the regulations. Don’t worry; we’ll help you stay on top of this. The new Renting in Wales Act has introduced several changes, including the Fitness for Human Habitation Act. If you’re considering becoming a landlord, we’re here to guide you through the process.

Let us help you find the perfect tenant and take the stress out of managing your property. Give us a call today!
