Should you have an emergency situation out of normal office hours we would ask that you contact the relevant tradesman directly (please note the tradesmen will use their discretion as to what is classified as an emergency)
What is an accidental landlord? Generally defined as those who have attempted to sell their property for some time without success so choose to rent the property and benefit from a rental income rather than wait for a buyer.
If so, don’t panic we can help! We understand this can be stressful time for you as you may feel forced into the position but we can make it a positive outcome for you.
Generally these properties are the landlord’s own home and as such, they have completely different needs and wants. Most important to you is likely to be the type of tenant – you need a tenant who will look after your property, care for it as you would expect, so that when the time comes to sell you are not left with a large redecoration bill!
Most accidental landlords are newcomers to lettings so you need to ensure you get professional advice on the rent level, type of tenancy agreement and the multitude of legislation which applies to renting out your property. We offer3 different service levels for our landlords but we tend to find full management suits best.
Sourcing Quality tenants quickly – we understand that a tenant who will look after your home is important to you. We listen to your preferences and try to match up the right type of tenant to your property. We will check that they meet your restrictions, pass through strict checks including credit check, employer check and current or previous landlord check
Professional marketing tailored to your needs– don’t want to neighbours to know? Many accidental landlords don’t want a big to let board advertising their business to the neighbours, we understand that and tailor our marketing to suit your needs with strong web presence and quality photography

My wife and I purchased a house relatively quickly so we got in touch with Fineholm, asking them to source tenants for our flat which we would be vacating. Sally and Fineholm sourced a fantastic couple with a young child very quickly, performed all the necessary checks and confirmed to us that they were very good candidates. Fineholm sorted everything out in the background in terms of all the required admin tasks as well as walking me through the necessary steps such as registering as a landlord and setting up my SafeDeposits account. I could not have done all that was required on my own and thanks to Fineholm the tenants were in our flat on an agreed 12-month lease, with the probability of another 12-month lease coming our way, in a very short space of time! Great service all round

Many thanks to you and your team for all your efforts; you thoroughly deserve every penny of your commission on this one
Mr Johnston (vendor & landlord)
Very easy to get in touch with, friendly and helpful...compared with the nightmares friends of mine have had with other agencies/landlords, Fineholm have been great, would definitely use again.
