Fed up with lettings agents? No Agent brings a fair service for both landlords and tenants
02 August 2017 2111 Views
No Agent’s innovative technology and in-house property experts offers landlords a simpler, flexible and low-fee way to manage everything from start to finish. On average, a fully managed lettings service costs between 8-15% of the annual rent. For a rental of £1,500pm, a 10% management fee will leave the landlord £1800 poorer each year.
The high cost doesn’t necessarily come with a stellar service. Each year, the Property Ombudsman gets thousands of complaints from landlords about lettings agents’ poor communication, unjustified delays and hidden fees.
Doing what the name suggests, No Agent is a complete property management service that removes the high costs and pain points of traditional agents. We bring down the cost by nearly 75% and place customer service at the heart of what we do.
