We undertake thorough pre-agreement enquiries – including full background and credit checks – to confirm that tenants are in a position to afford the properties owned by our clients. We draw up tenancy agreements and inventories that will be agreed and signed by tenants.

Where we are contracted for full property management service, we will organise necessary inspections and, should any repairs or maintenance be needed, we will obtain quotes for our clients to approve prior to having the work carried out.

student property management

Caxtons has managed my student property portfolio for many years. I have been consistently impressed with the personnel and professional level of service that is provided by all members of the student team. I am aware that they manage numerous properties for many landlords and yet, whenever I have a query, they are aware of the situation regarding my property and make me feel like a valued client. I look forward to working with Caxtons for many years to come.

Caxtons has provided a first class student letting service, which I think is fair to both tenant and landlord. The team is efficient and has ensured that tenants are selected in good time and respect the property they are renting. Based on my experience I would highly recommend Caxtons as a student letting agent.
