Knights Landlords are better-off in the long-run

As a result of the ‘Tenant Fee Ban 2019’ the cost for a landlord to establish a tenancy has increased so, it’s crucial to secure good, long-staying tenants to protect you from having to spend out on tenancy set-up costs.

By having longer staying, happier tenants you will also benefit from fewer void periods, less wear & tear and less investment required in between the tenancies where you may have had to do some odd jobs to attract a new tenant. When you add all of this up over a period of several years, you will be thousands of pounds better off, you won’t be stressed from all the unnecessary activity and you will have more time to focus on what’s important in life.

So, if you are a Landlord looking for a long-lasting, trouble-free tenancy, contact Knights.

How Knights produce industry leading results!

Bold statement, but let me explain. The average length of Knights tenancy from 2010 to 2020 was just over 33 MONTHS in length. This is over TWELVE MONTHS longer than the average for the South East of England, which is widely reported to be approximately 20 months in length. We…

Landlords all over the globe have trusted us with their cherished assets

Knights really look after you as a Landlord and I’ve recently moved agents to be with them – Great customer service skills, no drama’s and highly efficient professionalism at all times. I can’t recommend Ross, Mark & Phillipa enough, thank you.

Great service from Ross and Mark during the 4 years they have rented out our property for us whilst we are overseas. After two terrible experiences with other agents, it has been plain sailing since being with Knights with great communication and advice, good management and they have been quick to find tenants and keep the house occupied. Currently doing refurbs on the house but will definitely be asking Ross to market and manage the property again once it goes back on the market. Very happy to recommend them.

I was very impressed by the service provided by Ross and Mark at Knights Estate Agents. They were very proactive in contacting me and gaining my business in a professional manner. They approached the marketing of my property with an attention to detail and an accuracy that I have found sadly lacking in other agencies. They kept me fully informed of how the search for tenants was progressing. They repeatedly demonstrated a strong understanding of the rental market and of web search traffic. Knights gave me very good advice and were extremely straightforward to deal with. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family. I will use this company again to market my properties.

As a first-time landlord and trying to rent our property online without success, we engaged Knights to help find a suitable tenant. The whole process was seamless. Ross’s professionalism in understanding the market the rental value of the property and knowing how to show the property at its best was spot on. The day after the property was listed, we had an enquiry and after just one viewing; a tenant. Throughout the process leading up to the tenant moving-in both Ross and Mark could not have been more helpful. I would definitely recommend them to anybody thinking of renting their property.

The service from Ross at Knights has been excellent. We previously used another agent for another property and the lack of efficiency and communication prompted us to contact Knights.
Ross responded quickly and rented-out our house at the full asking price, within 2 weeks. The fees are very competitive and we have no hesitation in recommending Knights to other Landlords.
