We have flexible packages to suit every landlord. From a complete management service included guarantee rent to a package that will let you manage the property and we'll deal with the admin and advertising.
The Gold Package provides landlords with a complete property management service including liasing with your tenants for all maintenance related issues, and it also covers the non payment of rent the month it is due, with no excess and regardless of whether or not the tenant pays. You can therefore rest assured that your property is being professionally managed, whilst never having to worry about rent arrears or legal fees.
We believe this rental guarantee really is a fantastic unparalleled service, unseen elsewhere in the local market and is a brilliant guarantee of income for all landlords.
The Silver Service is a full management package, only you know how much time you can spare to deal with your tenant's telephone calls and the resulting work.
Our comprehensive Property Management service is designed to give you peace of mind and relieve you of the commitment of being a full-time landlord, which is why we look after around 1650 properties on behalf of clients in Gloucestershire. This package includes the marketing and sourcing of new tenants before the tenancy begins to the preparation of all legal documentation. We will then assist you with all maintenance related issues throughout the tenancy from small repairs to refurbishment of your property, including renewing the landlords Gas Safety Certificate, Portable Appliance testing and obtaining Electrical Installation Certificates when they are due. Finally, we will assist you with the deposit at the end of the tenancy, helping you to source quotes, aid negotiations and providing any legal knowledge we can to guide you through the process.
The Bronze Service is designed for landlords who do not wish to become involved with the marketing, administration or referencing when securing a tenant, but wish to manage the property themselves once the tenant has moved in. We will advertise your property, find you a tenant and handle all the necessary legal paperwork - we would also advise the preparation of an inventory, even on unfurnished properties, which can be arranged at a small additional cost.

With a great number of people opting to rent their homes residential landlords have a responsibility towards their tenants that we are all too aware of, however, as a residential landlord, you may face new risks and responsibilities.
As a landlord you will need to consider sudden emergencies like flooding, burst pipes, fire or weather damage. You will also need to consider other eventualities like how you would cover costs should your property become uninhabitable following an insurable incident and you need to rehouse your tenants, or how you would pay for repairs if the property was damaged, for example by impact from a third party vehicle. That’s why you’ll likely need a helping hand getting suitable landlord’s building insurance policy that helps ensure you have cover in place for unexpected circumstances that may otherwise cost you dearly.

Mr & Mrs P Francis
I have dealt with numerous letting agents both as a landlord and a tenant, CGT Lettings I have to say is superior.
As a landlord, I have been a customer of CGT since 2002. I have already recommended CGT to a number of other landlords and would not hesitate to do so again.
