Managing Your PropERty Like It's Our Own.

Professional ARLA QUALIFIED staff at Patrick Oliver dedicate their time and energy to market your property and achieve an optimum rent for you. Our proven matching service gives you the peace of mind that we will find the most suitable tenants for your property.

We advertise online on Zoopla, On the Market, & Rightmove, and these have consistent rapid results. We also actively promote your listing on Instagram and Facebook as soon as we are instructed.

As an online agent, we know the key to success is the quality of the photographs and the description. With professional photography, we take eye-catching photos to attract quality applicants. We also never rush our clients and give you as much time as you need for a phone call, meeting, viewing, etc.

Our dedicated team handle all tenant enquiries: initial screenings; interview during viewings; and ensure tenants will match your needs and the property. Our structured viewings are essential to thoroughly make sure that everyone is transparent. We can do these 7 days a week and out of office hours.

After agreeing the tenancy terms with you, we carry out unbiased and detailed referencing, which includes: thorough credit checks; landlord references; income verification; and open banking. Once the references are completed, we will update you and prepare the property and paperwork for rental.

As due diligent agents, we are fully qualified with Association of Regulated Letting Agents, and we have annual Client Money Protection membership. We are members of the Property Redress Scheme, and Money Laundering HMRC compliant. We protect all deposits with the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (The Dispute Service Ltd).

Benefits of an ARLA Qualified Agent - Why Choose an ARLA Agent?

With a Licensed ARLA agent you’re as safe as houses.
FACT: Every year, unlicensed agents cost Britain’s Landlords and Tenants thousands of pounds because they do not have protective measures in place to guarantee your money.

By using a Licensed ARLA agent you are guaranteed the following:-

  • To be consulting with qualified and trained agents who can give you professional up to date advice and guidance
  • That your money is protected by a Client Money Protection Scheme
  • That you are dealing with an agent who follows a Code of Practice and Rules of Conduct laid down by their professional body
  • That you agent has Professional Indemnity Insurance
  • That you have a route to redress should something go wrong

What does Licensing mean for you?

The Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) is committed to providing the highest standards of letting and management services through its Licensed Agents. ARLA has set up its Licensing Scheme to provide Landlords and Tenants with:-

Best practice in the letting and management profession
Consumer protection
High quality service from reliable, responsible, professional agents

ARLA believes that all letting and property management agents should belong to a Licensing Scheme – so that consumers know that not only are they getting the highest quality service possible, but also that any unscrupulous, unethical and unprofessional agents are stopped from practising in the letting industry.

There is currently NO mandatory regulation of letting and property management agents in the UK.

How am I better protected with a Licensed Agent?

A Licensed ARLA agent is qualified and is required to keep up to date with the latest developments in the market and with the changing legislation affecting letting and property management.

Without this knowledge and expertise, whether you’re a Tenant or a Landlord you may be badly advised or misled – or you may even suffer financial loss as a result.

By choosing a Licensed ARLA agent you are protecting your money because it is covered by a Client Money Protection Scheme. A Licensed ARLA firm will also have Professional Indemnity Insurance in place for your protection.

A Licensed firm also abides by a Code of Practice as well as Rules of Conduct. This means you can be assured that the service you receive is to the highest standard and your enquiry will be dealt with professionally and fairly.

In the unlikely event that things go wrong, a Licensed ARLA firm has a written complaints procedure. If you are not completely satisfied with the service you have received from a Licensed ARLA agent and cannot resolve the issue directly with the agent or firm, you have the option of taking your complaint to independent adjudication and redress through the Property Redress Scheme.

To check whether your local letting and property management agent is Licensed by ARLA, please visit the ARLA website at or telephone them 01926 496800

Short Furnished Lets

If you are in a position to rent out your property for only 3-6 months, then we can help you earn an above market rent to include all of the bills, whilst ensuring that your property is looked after to the same high standards as we would expect from any tenancy. 

We find you suitable tenants via Zoopla and on Social Media; and we match the individuals to your home. We will conduct thorough referencing checks; draw up a short let agreement; and collect the rent in full in advance for the whole tenancy. An inventory report is highly recommended to ensure that your property, and their deposit, is protected. A 5 weeks' deposit is held in our Client Account. 

If this is more suited to your current needs, then please do contact us today to discuss it in more detail. Call Gemma Patrick on 01424 390100 or email -
