to ensure high quality photographs. The property will be displayed on

European and American agents adding an international dimension to the

A: Plaza staff are carefully chosen for their professionalism as well as their sales skills. All staff are thoroughly trained and many have undertaken industry examinations. As long standing members of ARLA and NAEA we strive to maintain high standards of professionalism and follow a strict code of practice. We are bonded and insured and client funds and tenancy deposits are protected. We have professional indemnity insurance and are members of the Property Ombudsman. We are also members of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme and deposits are registered and administered accordingly. Senior staff regularly attend legal seminars to ensure that we are fully up to date with the changes in the law and able to give you the correct advice.
Q: How should I prepare my property for marketing?
We are happy to visit your property to give you advice and ideas on how to maximize the value and return on your property. For general rentals advice please see the rental section on our website Buying to Let
which gives full information on how to present your property for letting. Our Property Management Department offer a comprehensive refurbishment service for landlords not wanting to be involved in arranging works themselves.
Q: I only want to pay for results!
A: You only pay if we sell your property and on rentals we deduct our commission by instalment from each rental payment received. If either party serve notice and the tenancy is brought to an end, commission will not have been paid to us too far ahead. We think this is a straight forward and fair arrangement. You just pay for what you get.
