Landlord Services

There’s one simple reason why we’re different to other lettings agents out there and that’s because we truly understand landlords needs. Everything we do is about making our landlords’ lives easier and their rental investments more profitable.

Profitable rental investments

Making landlords lives easier

At Francis Stuart we understand landlords, what they want and what they need. But we also understand what the potential pitfalls are for landlords and what you need to avoid at all cost.

Our experience spans decades. There isn’t anything that we don’t know or haven’t seen during our time in the rental market and that sort of experience is invaluable.

We’re here to help you get the very best from your property investment. The last thing you want is the worry and concern that can come with being a landlord. The way we see it is that it’s our job to help you avoid problem areas such as tenant gaps, maintenance issues and non-payment of rent, because issues such as these can potentially turn your property investment dream into a tenant related nightmare very quickly.

One way of avoiding these nightmare scenarios is to talk to us about our Guaranteed Rental Plans, it might be the perfect solution for you where we can guarantee an agreed monthly income that is paid to you whatever happens, offering unrivalled and genuine, peace of mind.

Francis Stuart is here to help. We can guide you safely through every one of these issues and get you to a place where being a landlord is smooth, seamless and worry free.

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.
