Property management in Melbourn
With nearly three decades of experience behind us, the team at The Letting Centre knows what it takes to successfully manage tenancies in Melbourn and other locations in South Cambridgeshire.
Whether you simply need us to find a suitable resident, or you’d prefer us to take the entire property management process off your hands, you can trust us to follow failsafe systems and processes to deliver a service that’s second to none in the local area.
We understand that happy tenants lead to reduced costs and a better return on investment for our clients over time. We partner closely with our landlords and their occupants to make sure everyone is benefitting from their rental agreement and any issues are dealt with quickly, efficiently and logically.
We work tirelessly to keep costs down throughout each tenancy, especially when it comes to working with external contractors – and we also take all legal and compliance obligations into consideration from day one to give our landlords complete peace of mind that their investment is in safe hands.

How we can support you
We’re famed in the local area for our honest, straightforward and relentlessly friendly approach to property management. Here are some more reasons why local landlords choose to work with The Letting Centre:
We offer transparent fees
We’re committed to providing our property management services at some of the most competitive fees available in the local area. We’ll never mark up contractor invoices whether openly or ‘hidden’, in fact we work hard to obtain services at competitive rates, even passing on any discounts obtained direct to our landlords.

We understand the importance of exceptional customer service
We’re certainly not one of Melbourn’s faceless letting agents. We value the relationships we have with our clients and always do everything in our power to make sure our landlords and their tenants are satisfied with our service. And because we’re a small team, you’ll get to know everyone who works here at The Letting Centre – and they’ll get to know you pretty well, too!
We outsource all our reference checks to a specialist company.
We want to help you find the perfect occupant for your property, and this is why we use a specialised external referencing company for unbiased reporting including credit checks to guard against prospective tenants that might have adverse credit history and reduce the risk of non-payers. Meeting the prospective tenants face-to-face allows us to get a better insight into their circumstances, following up on any possible negative ‘red flags’ about their suitability as tenants.
We keep the channels of communication open
We want you to be able to talk to us about anything – and the same goes for your tenants. We work hard to establish strong, open relationships with our landlords and their renters to make sure everyone feels comfortable coming to us with any questions or concerns, at any time.
We’re meticulous in our methods
From completing comprehensive inventories to guiding new renters through the moving process, the staff here at The Letting Centre really will go the extra mile to make sure every aspect of your let is covered and the foundations are in place for a long and successful relationship with your tenant(s).
We conduct regular property inspections as standard
Unlike many other property management companies in Melbourn and Cambridge, we like to visit our landlords’ properties as frequently as we can to make sure everything is as it should be. Offering any lifestyle guidance needed in the early stages to steer the occupants towards the right track (That said, if a tenant has been in situ for some time and they have an impeccable track record, we may recommend reducing visits to avoid unnecessary intrusions where we feel appropriate but with your agreement.) If there are any issues, we’ll let you know and start searching for a solution.
How much does it cost to work with us?
Here’s a breakdown of all our property management fees.
I have never dealt with such, friendly, professional staff who were always available when I called the office, and dealt with any matters quickly and efficiently. I always felt that it was like chatting to a friend when you called the office. If you are looking to rent out your property I can't recommend them highly enough."
