Home Owners

Do I as owner have to be present at the house viewing?
No, our agents can arrange the viewings and take care of everything. If, however, you would like to be present at the housing viewing we will of course coordinate the viewings to fit in with your timetable.

Do I as owner have a say regarding the choice of the future tenant?
Yes you do. Before finding tenants for your house, we will sit together to understand what your preferences are when it comes to tenants. All the rental conditions have to be agreed on by both sides involved in the rental process.

What happens after you find a potential buyer/renter?
As soon as we have found a potential buyer/renter, we will set up a meeting with you to discuss the contract. We are keen on finding the best solution for both parties involved.
