Landlord Guide

CB+CO can guide you through the process of being a landlord to ensure maximised value of your property investment. With over 50 years’ experience, we are well equipped to help our clients whether it’s sourcing your first investment property or helping you to build your property portfolio.

We are here to guide you through the process to ensure we achieve the highest possible rent, maintain and continuously improve your property whilst ensuring it is managed to a high standard.

1. Accurate Market Appraisal

We will provide you with a free, no obligation valuation and advise you how much you can expect to receive in rental income. The rental value can depend on various factors, from the general presentation of the property, furniture, parking, outdoor space to the location, transport links and local amenities. We use the best tools available to ensure you are provided with a realistic valuation to guarantee you the best possible rent tailored to your requirements.

2. Landlord Service Options

At CB+CO you can choose from one of our three service levels to find the best fit for your requirements. Whether it’s a tenant find service only or a fully hands-off service from start to finish, we can offer a service to meet your requirements.

3. Legal Compliance

In an industry that is constantly subject to regulatory changes, it is always worth having an agent who is actively up to date on legislation. As a small agency, we are able to adapt quickly & implement any necessary procedures. From ensuring there is an EPC, Electrical Installation Condition Report, Gas Safety Certificate, we will ensure your property remains compliant at all times.

4. Presentation Advice

In an industry where more people are renting and competition is becoming stronger, presentation is incredibly important. This ensures you achieve maximum rent & attract high-quality tenants. Whether it’s arranging a fresh lick of paint, a furniture package or professional clean – we can help get your property prepared.

5. Cutting Edge Technology

We have spent a lot of time researching into the best property platforms, technology and proven marketing, as well as investing in the best property management software to successfully manage your property.

6. Marketing

The property will be marketing on the UK’s leading property portals: Rightmove and Zoopla. We will also market the property on the CB+CO website and we will also use our social media platforms to target a different type of audience through reels and creative posts.

Our clients also benefit from premium listings on the property portals, meaning your property appears at the top.

7. Viewings

All viewings will be confirmed with you prior to appointment. We will only book viewings in with pre-qualified applications and we will always accompany the viewings unless otherwise preferred. We aim to provide insightful feedback within 24 hours.

8. Offers and Tenant Vetting

As soon as an offer has been made, we will contact you to provide full details. All offers are subject to satisfactory references, which are carried out by our partners Let Alliance.

9. Inventory and Schedule of Condition

If the property is managed by us, prior to moving the tenants in we will carry out a photographic inventory and schedule of condition. This will be sent to you electronically as well as to the tenant to ensure both sides are satisfied. A quality report is essential in order to support evidence if there are any disputes or damage at the end of the tenancy.

10. Tenancy Agreements

The Tenancy Agreement will be sent to you and the tenants electronically to give you all time to read the document in your own time before signing.

11. Rent and Deposit Registration

If the property is managed, prior to move in we will arrange collection of the first month’s rent as well as the deposit amount. Upon receiving, we will register the tenants deposit with the DPS (Deposit Protection Scheme).

12. Arranging Move In

Finally, once all the paperwork and property prep is done, we can get the keys released to the tenant and the tenant moved in!

My husband and I just completed the purchase of our first home in derby. Paul and Jeremy were both fantastic throughout the entire process. They kept us updated consistently and made time to respond to every query we had regarding the property. Their recommended mortgage adviser is very patient and reliable and constantly works with our lawyers to ensure there are no unnecessary delays in the process. I Will highly recommend Curran Birds & Co estate agents for their reliability, efficiency and effectiveness in buying a home..

Gloria K


From bid, to customer service till the very end, Paul and the team have been outstanding. It was a pure delight to purchase from them and they made everything stress free and easy. I would certainly recommend this estate agent to anyone looking to purchase or sell, and they will have my custom again in the future. Its a shame I can only give 5 stars. Thank you so much everyone at Curran Birds + Co!

Jimmy Wild


Recently sold my house with Curran Birds + Co and couldn’t recommend them enough. The process from valuation through to completion was made stress free due to the frequent updates from both Jeremy and Paul. The pictures and marketing of the house was exceptional, resulting in the property being sold within a few days. I will definitely use them in the future when buying or selling my next property.

Steven Taylor


I've recently purchased a semi-detached house through this team. As a first-time buyer, Paul and Jeremy's patience and guidance throughout the entire process was invaluable to me. They were involved to ensure everything went smoothly and regularly checked in with updates. If you're looking to buy a house, this team is the only THE CHOICE for you.



My husband and I have just sold our house through Curran Birds & Co and can not recommend them enough.
From start to finish the communication between ourselves has been fantastic and the support with legal documents was so helpful, we would highly recommend them to everyone!

I have dealt with Jeremy Curran few times and every time he has excelled my expectations. I called him a few weeks ago to sell my mother’s house, he was got it on the market and it was sold within a days for more. The whole team at Curran Birds & Co are very friendly and professional, kept me updated throughout. I would definitely highly recommend them to everyone, as I have done already, these guys are genuine. I will not consider any other estate agents for my needs.

Liaz Jakhara
