Landlords

Landlord Services, Croydon and LondonSmartspace cater for all landlords and all types of properties, regardless of the specification, size or location.

Our unique guaranteed rent service has fast become the preferred letting option for the majority of landlords.

Our Guaranteed Rent Management service  is the only letting option which offers long term leases, is risk free, and provides you with guaranteed rent and guaranteed peace of mind. Rent is paid on time – all the time!

At Smartspace we adapt our choices to match the requirements of each individual landlord, and whilst our guaranteed rent service is our most popular letting route, we understand that this option may not suit all landlords.

An additional range of more orthodox letting routes are available via the residential lettings market. Whether it be a simple introduction, rent collection or fully management service.

Regardless of the size of your portfolio, our team has the required expertise to successfully manage your properties. You can rest assured they will be in safe hands.
