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. Where some landlords require only limited support such as simply a Viewings 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.

We aim to minimise the voids between tenancies. On average, this is only 8 days including a period of 5 days for any work which is required.

For more advice on becoming or being a landlord, see our Landlords FAQ page.
