UPAD - THE UK'S LARGEST ONLINE LETTING AGENT
What is an online letting agent? We don’t have high street offices. We let properties nationally with a network of local specialists who can help you with all the services you need. Last year we let over 3,500 properties across the UK. Our prices are fair, with property letting starting at just £99+vat. Rooms are even less.
The big difference? We’ll find tenants and introduce you. You arrange viewings and show them around yourself; we’ll handle the referencing and admin. Simple.
Take a look at our range of letting services and read some of our customer reviews. If you like to take an active role in your property or portfolio, we can help you. Please call us on 0333 240 1220 (local rate even from mobile). We’re open 7 days a week and would love to hear from you.
