At Whittle Knight Ltd our property management team is dedicated to property management and looking after your needs. We are managed independently from the sales team, but are still able to call on the sales professionals when you are looking to buy or sell investment properties.
This means we are focused 100% on providing you with outstanding property management services.

Portfolio Management – You are assigned one property manager, who looks after every aspect of the management of your property – letting, maintenance, rent arrears and inspections to name a few. This way you have one contact person, who can update you at all times – there is no shuffling you from one person dealing with maintenance, another for letting the property, and yet another for account enquiries.
We understand that you need to be kept aware of all developments affecting your property. We do this several ways.
We provide you with a detailed inspection report, for every inspection we complete.
You will have access to our monthly newsletter keeping you abreast of the latest developments that may impact you or your investment.
