We believe that anything less than a professional, friendly and personal attitude to customer care, combined with a thorough approach to every aspect of the transaction is unacceptable.

Over-valuation is a recurrent problem within the property market. It means stock that stands empty, and assets that don’t pay.
The aim at Kassam and Co is to ensure that your property is valued accurately let faster, by showcasing it to the largest possible pool of appropriate tenants. And with likeable, genuine staff who are conspicuous by their availability, our property management service offers the perfect support for landlords who don’t have time to worry about their property.
Of course you don’t want just any tenant in your property. A classic mistake of the ‘do-it-yourself’ landlord is to just put anyone in the property without properly checking them out. At Kassam and Co we have access to comprehensive referencing services to give greater clarity on a prospective tenant’s background which all helps minimise potential future tenancy issues.
Whether you are a buy-to-let investor or have chosen to rent out your own home, as a landlord your biggest concern will generally be ‘can I keep my property occupied as much as possible’.
With letting comes inherent risk and this can never be eliminated but what Kassam and Co can do is help to minimise that risk by getting things right from the very beginning – referencing tenants properly, taking care of safety legislation, compiling a detailed inventory and drawing up a legally-sound tenancy agreement.
Sound knowledge is vital to ensuring any situation can be handled in the correct legal manner and resolved as quickly as possible. The laws can be rather complex at times and we therefore spend many hours learning it so that you don’t have to!.
At Kassam and Co we believe in the transparency of our service and we will clearly state all fees to you before we let your property and our transparency goes even further as we are members of the Property Redress scheme and adhere to its rigorous code of practice and redress scheme.
Inspecting your property periodically once it is let is a crucial part of our property management service, providing you with the comfort of knowing exactly how the property is being cared for by your tenant. When a tenant leaves your property Kassam and Co will handle the detailed inspection to ensure your property has been left in acceptable condition and will deal with the release of the tenancy deposit – taking away a major ‘hassle’ from you!.
To reflect the different requirements of property owners Kassam and Co offers three levels of service to landlords; a Let Only Service, a Letting and Rent Collection Service and a Full Management Service, but in every case this is backed up by a comprehensive marketing package which includes:-
- The preparation of quality lettings particulars with floor plans and colour photographs
- Targeted mailing distribution to registered tenants
- Comprehensive online marketing through our own much acclaimed website and other major national property portals
- Eye catching targeted press advertising
- Distinctive To Let boards
