Lettings Services for Bristol Landlords

Working with you


Abode Property Management work closely with all our landlords - whether they happen to be based in Bristol or abroad. Our Managing Director and owner, Steven Harris, liaises with new landlords to establish their exact requirements supported by an experienced team of lettings experts.

Where some landlords require only limited support such as simply a let only service, others may be located overseas, have large portfolios or have busy work lives and prefer Full Property Management with more regular feedback.

We are always keen to help, whether you have a small studio apartment or a large portfolio of properties.
