Being Landlords ourselves we understand that letting your property for the first time or after having a negative experience can make letting your property a daunting task. Here at Orchard K Lettings, we are always on hand to help guild you through and answer any questions or address any concerns you may have. We have longer opening hours beyond the standard 9am - 5pm so don't hesitate to contact us as we're here to help. Our opening hours can be found on our contact us page alongside our contact details.
Being independent agents and only having a very small team you will always talk to the same people and not get passed around the building meaning you won't have to repeat yourself over and over again. We can also tailor our services to suit you as we work on a one to one basis so can offer bespoke services.
We have a clear and easy to understand pricing structure which can be found below so there are no nasty hidden fees. We always like to keep our fees fair and very competitive. We will also never take on more properties than we can manage as high-quality service to both landlords and tenants is at the heart of everything we do.
