Time-consuming. Stressful. Being a private landlord may have its advantages. But managing a property also has its downsides. Our property management service lets you enjoy the benefits of your rental investment without having to shoulder the demands that come with it.

Our in-depth knowledge of the London and Greater London rental market, our access to a wide range of tradesmen capable of meeting every possible maintenance need – and our wide range of reporting options – is able to suit any property requirement. Our Property Management Service provides a strong foundation for a successful rental investment.

Knight Young takes pride managing your property and offers a fully inclusive property management service unmatched by others. Knowing your home is in the right hands and being managed can be a daunting experience therefore finding the right managing agent isn’t easy, that is why Knight Young has a dedicated property management service bespoke to each property we take on. We devote our attention to ensuring your property runs smoothly and at Knight Young we believe our property is our home and manage properties how we would expect our own to be managed.

The relationship between landlord and tenant is usually a straightforward one: a tenant is happy to pay rent for a comfortable place in which to reside for a period of time agreed, and a landlord is happy to maintain a comfortable residence, for which the tenant pays rent.

There are the rare occasions that a landlord/tenant relationship becomes strained, you can be assured that Knight Young will be there to provide and support, and ensure an equitable solution to the issue at hand.

Thankfully major issues do not occur that often, and we believe that this may well be due to the 'way' in which we manage properties and tenancies.

Unlike many of our competitors, we undertake regular property visits whilst the tenancy is ongoing. This means that we often pick up on potential issues before they amount to something more serious, and it also helps to build relationships with tenants. Having a good relationship with the tenant, and with you, our client helps us in being able to rectify any problems with the minimum amount of fuss and upset. We also undertake to transfer rent over to you within three working days of it hitting our account.

Our portfolio of London properties continues to grow, a sure testament of our ability to do the job. For more information about the Knight Young residential property management service, please speak to one of our Lettings Managers, or our Director Amritpal Singh Khalsa.

Major building works present many problems and create a huge amount of mess. Often it is not feasible for homeowners to stay in the property while works are underway. Many of our clients prefer to spend time at their other addresses and allow us to oversee the work. We liaise with all contractors, managing the project from its inception right through to the final snagging. You return home to a property that is fully refurbished to your specifications, tidy and with your furnishings back in their rightful places.

When renting out your property, it is important that you not only ensure that the new tenants look after the property, but that the tenants' needs are looked after too. From fast, reactive management of problems to regular checks on the property Knight Young ensures that our clients' tenants are kept happy and that their properties are being well maintained.
Whether we are organising the regular weekly clean of a property or the once a year spring clean whilst our client is on holiday, we can take on the responsibility of booking and paying a cleaner as well as providing access to the property, ensuring it is left securely afterwards. As many of our clients have delicate finishes and valuable possessions, we ensure the cleaning staff are well briefed and thoroughly vetted before commencing work.
