A Guide to lettings for Landlords

For landlords we operate a full management service ensuring we can offer the comprehensive level of care required for families, professionals and students who will let your properties.  

Here are a few of our attributes that make Ashbrookes the right choice to manage your properties:


Ashbrookes have experience in letting residential and student properties houses for nearly seven years and have a management team that has operated some of the most successful lettings businesses in Middlesbrough.  We have learnt the right way to succeed in the lettings market. We can advise and assist on buying the right property, refurbishing and then letting the property. We also offer a no charge service to review any potential purchases for you to ensure that they are financially viable.


We have dedicated maintenance teams who are time-served and understand what needs to be done to to ensure that we maintain all properties to a lettable standard. We can also manage bigger projects that may range from a new central heating system to a full property refurbishment.

Scheduled Certification.

We have robust systems to ensure that all Gas Safety, Electrical Systems and Fire safety checks are carried out on time at sensible prices. This offers landlords peace of mind that their properties are up to date with the required standards.

Dedicated lettings staff.

Your property will be managed by a dedicated member of staff, ensuring that you have a personal contact who knows you and your property. We find this ensures a better level of service and attention to detail.

Rent Collection.

Although it’s hard to believe, some tenants don’t pay their rent on time. Or at all. We have a dedicated rent collection specialists that use all legal methods to ensure you receive all the rent due to you.


We have a dedicated account department that ensures that you receive all receipts and relevant financial information you require a long with a clear rent statement.


We operate a flexible viewing schedule to suit the tenants and get your property let to the best possible tenants.

House in Multiple Occupancy.

Over the last 7 years that we have been operating we have seen a huge increase in the legislation that affects the private rented sector. At Ashbrookes we manage many HMO’s (Houses in Multiple Occupancy) ranging in size from 4 beds to 30 beds and have gained a huge amount of experience in managing these properties. We share this experience with our landlords to ensure that they stay ahead of changes in the law, remain compliant and still make profit from the HMO.


Ashbrookes aim to ensure that our contracts protect both the landlord and the tenant. While it may appear that we take more steps to sign a tenancy, this procedure ensures that tenants are aware of their obligations and are correctly bound to the terms.


We advertise our landlord’s properties on Rightmove, and Zoopla in addition to our own comprehensive website. We find this offers the best coverage for all tenant types and markets. We also create a range of social media postings in keeping with current trends in the marketplace.

Engaging Ashbrookes as your managing agent.  

We have a 6 step process which is very straight forward: 


Book a Lettings valuation with our experienced valuers who understand the market


Ensure you property meets all legal requirements which change from time to time, but we will confirm these at the time and also assist you in meeting these obligations.


Ensure your property looks it’s best.  First impressions count so maximising location décor furniture will impact the type of tenant who becomes interested and also the rent that the property can command.  Speak to one of our friendly advisers for bespoke information on what can be done to enhance your property.


Instruct Ashbrookes to let your property.  This requires you to sign a lettings management contract.  Once contracts are signed, we can advertise your property within 48 hours on all our portals including Rightmove and Zoopla.


Receive enquiries, viewings and tenant offers to let.  We can carry out virtual and physical viewings on all properties and forward you any offers received. You can be confident that we have done due-diligence on the tenant before present him or her as a potential to you.


Hands off experience – Happy tenants – Happy Landlords  -  The vast majority of our landlords engage us on a fully managed service, leaving us to do all the work whilst they enjoy the fruits of their investment.
