A guide to renting a property
At Robert Oulsnam and Company we know that demand for rental property is very high and that those looking to become tenants can struggle to find a property for them. Our Lettings Department can help potential tenants find the property they are looking for and will guide tenants through the legal and financial side of the letting. We have over 40 years’ experience helping tenants in the rented sector – we can keep your details on our database and whenever new properties become available that fit your desired criteria we will inform you and arrange viewings. Once you have found the right property our team will guide you through the application and tenancy agreement and sort out payments.
