Landlords


Kings are well established in the local Lettings market, with more than 25 years’ experience.

Our focus is on our partnership with you, the Landlord.  We have worked with a large percentage of our Landlords for many years and believe this is the result of delivering a service that is tailored to each and every customer.

To ensure we are always up to date with the latest legislation and best practise, we invest heavily in the training of our people.  All of our offices have at least one member of staff that has taken the NFOPP Technical Award Qualification and each office has an individually registered Member of the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA).

In order to manage your property effectively, we use the latest technology.  Our targeted marketing techniques ensure that your letting is advertised effectively to prospective tenants.

If you are interested in the rental potential of your property, please request a free no-obligation valuation, by one of our professional valuation experts.
