HMO Property Management

This specific area of the lettings market isn’t easy but we have the experience and knowledge to handle it properly, efficiently and effectively.

There are only two specialist non student HMO property management agents in the Plymouth area and we’re proud to say that we’re one of them.

We specialise in handling tenancies for professional contractors who are working in the city and one of the reasons it’s a popular sector is because Plymouth is developing at an increasing rate and professional contractors need somewhere to stay.

Effective management of this whole process takes experience and that’s what we offer at Francis Stuart. The properties we manage range from three bedroomed HMO flats, right through to four storey buildings with 10+ rooms.

In simple terms we deliver great tenants, under great management, offering great returns.

Professional Photography

Our team will ensure that the best photographs of the property get taken to show off your property. We will attend with the photographer to ensure the property is looking its best, and then use these photos for the marketing of the property to potential tenants. By doing this, we aim to reduce voids and ensure you get the best tenants and maximise the return on your investment.

Knowledge and Experience

We know the Plymouth and Tavistock lettings market inside out, and with experience in all areas of this market, we understand what tenants like and expect. We use this knowledge and expertise to maximise your return from your investments.

Legislation Experts

Our team consists of two ARLA qualified members of staff. Lettings management must be done correctly, and so our team ensures you stay on the right side of the law.

Property Marketing

We’ll make sure your property is advertised on the right platforms to ensure we get high-quality leads, including Rightmove, Zoopla and social media.

Reference Checks

To make sure we get great tenants, we go above and beyond to make sure we know everything we can about the tenant. We can ensure that they will be an excellent fit for the property they want to live in. All tenants undergo referencing, which includes a credit check, previous landlord check and an employment check.


We can carry out a photographic inventory of the property before a tenant moves in. Inventories will ensure that if the tenant damages the property, you can claim on the tenant’s deposit.


Our team will carry out inspections to ensure the property is being looked after as it should be. You will get a detailed report with recommendations from us with any work required highlighted. From this report, we can help you effectively resolve any issues raised or improvements to improve the quality and therefore, your return on your investment.


We use FixFlo software so tenants can report any maintenance issues that arise at the property 24/7, and we encourage all tenants to use this software. We try and get all work completed as fast as possible. We make use of competent local contractors to ensure our responses to maintenance issues are quick, and prices competitive.

Payment of Rent

We use our CRM to help track all our rent payments into and out of our dedicated client account. We can either make daily, weekly or monthly payments of rent depending on your preference. Our landlord portal allows landlords to view

their statements 24/7.
