Are You a Landlord?

At Jones Robinson, we understand that every property and landlord is different and that landlords let a property for a variety of reasons.

Renting out your property requires careful planning. You will need a professional lettings agent that you know you can trust.

We work with all types of landlords as detailed below and will work with you to ensure that becoming/being a landlord is as stress-free as possible. Our dedicated and qualified lettings team will use their experience and expertise to deliver a first class service and support you at every step.

We can also offer you peace of mind with our emergency cover for your central heating and hot water, click on the link below for details of Jones Robinson Active Care.

No Deposit Guarantee Scheme

Security & Protection for landlords 

We are now working with Flatfair to offer a no deposit option for tenants. This can replace a traditional tenancy deposit, giving landlords the same cover and protection as having a tenancy deposit in the bank, whilst making renting more affordable for tenants.

Tenants pay the equivalent of one week’s rent for a policy, which is non-refundable and provides you with the equivalent of a 10 week tenancy deposit (tenants can only pay a 5 week deposit on any assured shorthold tenancy under the current legislation). Tenants remain fully accountable for any damages or unpaid rents.

In the event of any financial loss or damage due to you, this is settled by the tenant or if they dispute the claim the evidence is sent for expert adjudication. If found in your favour, Flatfair will settle the claim with you and recover the costs from the tenants directly, along with any associated costs. Non-payment by the tenant at this stage may impact on the tenant's credit history.
