We consider the relationship we have with each of our owners as an individual partnership, which is why we never ask new owners to sign up until they’ve met their local property expert. During your property visit they will talk you through everything you need to know about letting your property with us and can answer questions on anything from décor and furnishing to pricing and expected income.
They will then remain a vital point of contact for advice, working alongside our regionally focussed Owner Services team who can help advise on the more day-to-day operations. As well as free professional photography and beautifully written descriptions to market your property, our property expert will grade your holiday home on behalf of Visit England, at no extra cost.
