Base Property Services recently helped us to find a buy-to-let property and we also use them to manage our existing property. Their service was (as usual) top-notch. I don't think that buying a property could be easier than this. Kristjan found the property, took care of all queries, helped get any questions with the seller answered quickly and chased whoever was required in order to the sale to go through smoothly. They found us a property that was already tenanted so we did not even have to worry about finding tenants once the sale went through. Excellent service all round!

Base Property Specialists took over managing the flat we rented after the previous agent failed to their basic responsibilities such as paying the rent back to the landlord and responding to issues. BASEPS have always been extremely professional. Responded to all issues in a timely ...

Fair, and in line with market rates. Naturally, the world will be a better place when the law prohibits agency fees from being charged to tenants, but until then it's hard to gripe about those charged by Base.
