Landlords


We’re always looking for quality houses to offer to our prospective tenants. We only do lettings so we can promise to focus exclusively on finding you great tenants quickly

What makes Octopus different?

  • No Let – No Fee: We don’t do sales so 100% of our income comes from lettings. This means we know the lettings market inside out and can focus on finding you quality tenants quickly. We don’t charge any initial set-up fees so you don’t pay us a penny until the property is occupied.
  • Advertising: We target our advertising campaigns for individual properties and advertise extensively online. We also direct market potential tenants, and have a strong network of contacts who know our vacancies.
  • Personal Service: No faceless offices, leaving messages and receptionists! From day one you will have a personal Lettings Manager and their mobile number.
  • Business Minded: We understand that income from your property is important and we will work hard to minimise all void periods. If it’s empty, you can be assured that we’re working extra hard to get it rented. In addition we can advise on all aspects of tenancy law, HMO licensing, deposit protection, EPC compliance and market rents.
  • Networking: Corporate clients call us first. We’ve a reputation as one of Leeds strongest letting agents for company lets. They know that we only have the best houses and landlords in our portfolio and trust us with their needs.
  • In-house Maintenance: In addition to our lists of approved contractors we have an in-house maintenance team. We can sort everything from replacing a tap washer to a complete renovation!
  • Easy to Understand Billing: Our computerised system shows you exactly what you need to see. Our statements show all charges and expenses itemised to assist in your tax Self Assessment submission.
