services for landlords

Superior marketing and exceptional customer service

At Perry Bishop and Chambers we believe passionately that whether you’re selling or letting your property you should enjoy exceptional marketing and customer service. Too often we have seen standards slip when it comes to marketing properties that are to let rather than for sale.

For all rental properties we arrange professional photography and floorplans. We implement a tailored marketing strategy – both offline and online – and employ the latest and best technology tools to ensure that we attract the right tenants and deliver you the best rental yield.

Perry Bishop and Chambers’ success has been built upon being ‘the agent who keeps you informed’. Our professional lettings team will keep you regularly updated from the moment you instruct us through to handover of tenancy and beyond.

Experienced Team

Our lettings department is overseen by Managing Director Phillip Bishop, with experienced Lettings Manager Tammy Powell MARLA managing valuations and the day-to-day running of the lettings team.

Our service is registered with ARLA – The Association of Residential Lettings Agents - a professional membership and regulatory body for letting agents and letting agencies in the UK.

Our Service Options

  • Essential Service/Let Only
  • Classic Management
  • Enhanced Management

Essential Service/Let Only: 100% of the initial months rent inc VAT

Otherwise known as Let only or Tenant Find this package is most suited to those landlords who need us to find new tenants and set up the legal documentation involved and do not wish to be involved with the  marketing, administration or referencing when securing a tenant but have the skills, time and legal knowledge to manage their own properties from there on in.

Classic Management: 14% of the monthly rental amount inc VAT

For those of you who don’t want the burden of being a full-time landlord this is our standard management package.

It includes professional photography, the marketing and finding of new tenants including viewings and the arranging of the legal documentation associated with any tenancy. It also includes the arranging of any compliance certificates for example the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), the Gas Safety Certificate, Portable Appliance testing and/or Electrical Installation Certificates (EICR) at the commencement of the tenancy and when they are due for renewal.

We will carry out thorough property visits, taking photographs at every visit to create an in-depth report throughout the term. Each report will provide both you and your tenant(s) with an accurate record of the property’s condition which will help reduce the chance of disputes later on or at the end.

Our Property Manager is dedicated to maintenance meaning they will pick up maintenance issues before they become too serious and ensure works are dealt with promptly and efficiently ensuring potentially serious problems are avoided, this will help keep bills to a minimum.

We will also deal with the return of the deposit on your behalf including any negotiations surrounding the deposit and its return.

Enhanced Management: 16% of the monthly rental amount inc VAT

For complete peace of mind our Enhanced Management package offers it all and is fast becoming our most popular package given the level of protection it offers. It includes as standard everything the Classic Package does but includes the benefit of Rent Guarantee and Legal Cover in the unfortunate event that things do go wrong meaning you can still sit back, relax, and concentrate on your day job.

To find out more about these service options or if you would like an up-to-date valuation of a rental property, please call your local branch of Perry Bishop and Chambers and ask to speak to one of our experienced lettings team.

Don't just take our word for it - our latest reviews

Tammy made renting my house out incredibly easy! She was quick, efficient, kind and professional. She made the whole process and the tenants that she secured for me are wonderful. I won’t hesitate to call her every time I need any property service from now on! Thank you Tammy and everyone at Perry Bishop!

Paula Burden, CHELTENHAM BRANCH, November 2020

We would just like to thank you, Lowenna and Michelle so much with the letting of 3 The Furlongs, Tresham in finding such a lovely tenant so quickly. You have all been such a support and offered good advice when we needed it, the whole process was so quick and professional. We would recommend Perry Bishop to anyone looking to let a property and we would most certainly use you again.

Annette Ponter, NAILSWORTH BRANCH, September 2020

I am delighted with the service that Perry Bishop provided, keeping me in touch with progress at all times. The best letting agency I have dealt with.

Laura B, CIRENCESTER BRANCH, July 2020

PB&C have managed our two properties for two years. During almost all of that time we have had tenants in both properties who have been reliable and have been minimal trouble. PB&C’s management fees are very reasonable and we receive regular and accurate updates regarding payments, repairs and inspections. Of note, Tammy Powell has been an outstanding contact from the company and we trust her judgement implicitly. All told, a great service from PB&C.

Simon Richardson, STROUD BRANCH, January 2020

Tammy Powell at Perry Bishop went above and beyond helping me secure my new home, in a fast and very friendly, positive fashion. Very happy with the service I have received!

Lulu Guinness, STROUD BRANCH, March 2019

Perry Bishop’s Rental Service follows on from the outstanding business that is the Sales Department. The delivery of the Rental Department was professional, friendly, accurate in its pricing and very good value for money. I would highly recommend Tammy and their services!
