There are over 160 different laws and legislations covering the rental market that you are obligated to adhere to as a landlord. Failure to comply can result in serious fines and in some cases, imprisonment. Some are introduced or updated with little warning and can be quite complex.
We can offer a full property compliance check to ensure you meet the requirements then maintain necessary inspections moving forwards on your behalf.
Our core values reflect the attributes of our staff, culture, decisions we make and how we operate. We recognise that our staff are our most valuable asset and strive to create an environment where they can flourish. We hope our values represent the characteristics most important to you when choosing the right agent.
"We own a property in Canterbury and for the last 9 years have had Sandersons UK manage it for us. In all these years we have had professional help from all members of staff there. If there is ever a problem they are quick to resolve it. I would highly recommend Sandersons to anyone thinking of renting their property, you will not be disappointed." ★★★★★

A combination of factors and expertise from our in-house team contribute to helping you find, choose and keep the right tenant for your property.
It starts by generating maximum interest from eye catching marketing material to enable you to choose the most likely suitable tenant.
All prospective applicants go through a pre-qualification process with our experienced negotiators before a viewing appointment is made. We substantiate this during the viewing.
The shortlisted applicants submit a pre-reference check giving the landlord more detailed information on their background, financial position, timescales and any requests for the let.
For the chosen applicant(s), third party, thorough reference checks will be submitted to obtain credit history, ID checks, landlord reference, employer reference and Right to Rent verification.
The comprehensive Tenancy agreement and guarantor agreements (where required) are signed electronically. A professional inventory is recommended for recording the property condition.
Rent Guarantee and legal expenses cover is highly recommended to cover any eventuality of a breach or change in tenant circumstances.
Skilled in-house management maintains positive communication between parties, oversees compliance, maintenance, legal notices, problem solving and safeguarding a healthy tenancy.
We employ experienced, in-house professional photographers who will take the time required to make your home stand out from the crowd. Our aim is to show a property at its best, without being deceiving.

Our professionally filmed, walk-through video tours provide a great overall view of what a property is really like. We make them intentionally straight forward, with minimal cuts to provide an immersive experience that actually feels like you are walking around a property.
Our New Lets team oversee referencing, contracts and move in, then will introduce you to your dedicated Property Manager (managed service only). We do not outsource any aspect of our property management service to third parties, it is all managed in-house by a specialist, qualified, knowledgeable team. We use the most advanced tools and technology to maintain compliance, contracts and to make communicating with us as easy as possible with accurate record keeping.
Our credit control team will oversee the collection and transfer of rent payments. Detailed property visit reports are sent to both landlords and tenants, representing an invaluable record in the event of any end of tenancy dilapidations disputes or evidencing validity of possession notices under the Deregulation Act.
We offer an online maintenance reporting and job tracking tool with troubleshooting videos and tips for tenants which has helped reduce landlord call out charges by over £120 a year.
Despite rigorous reference checks on someone’s past and current financial position, nobody can predict their future. We operate a rigorous in-house credit control system with over 99% success rate in recovering rent arrears. However, personal circumstances can change unexpectedly from relationship separation to illness or redundancy. These could all impact their ability to pay the rent.
Could you afford to:
Continue to pay your mortgage if a tenant missed their payment?
Risk the loss of income for up to 6 months?
Cover all legal costs to gain possession & attend court?

£0 excess to pay
Continue to receive all rent payments on time
Legal representation to recover your property through the court
100% rent paid up until possession is granted

"After an unexpected work request to relocate across the continent, I was referred to Sandersons by a friend of mine. Their fully managed service of my property in the UK has been brilliant. I was particularly impressed by the ‘front-end’ service provided of photographs, advice on tax implications and subsequent advertising and then finding a tenant for the property." ★★★★★

"As a new landlord, I met with several agents whose approach I didn’t appreciate. I went with Sandersons because I felt they were engaging and supportive without pushing their own agenda. They have found me a lovely tenant and I am happy I went with them. They also did a good job with the photos and virtual tour they put online to advertise the flat." ★★★★★

"We’ve let two properties through Sandersons and they have been consistently helpful and proactive with both. They have gone above and beyond offering advice and help where needed. We would highly recommend them for lettings." ★★★★★

"I would recommend Sandersons for both property sales and property management services. My property was managed for five years by their committed team (including the excellent Robin). I decided to sell this past year. The sales process was managed effectively with the property management and sales team working together. I felt well cared for!" ★★★★★
