Peace of mind for Barking Landlords

​What Our Clients Say

I have just signed another 2-year lease with Elliot Leigh under their guaranteed rent scheme. As an overseas landlord, it is comforting to know my property is in good hands. The rent is always paid on time, and I have had very prompt if not immediate responses to my emails

Laura, Ilford

Have been with Elliot Leigh for good 7 years and given them at least 3 of my properties. I am planning to give them all my property to run when it’s available. I find them very professional always paid rent on time. Very friendly staff Steve & Rahena. Yes, I would recommend to all. Thanks

Mr F Ahmed

The staff at Roman Road are excellent. When issues have arisen they have dealt with it promptly. After the first tenant left the staff did a good job of decorating – probably better than ours! As promised, the payments have been regular and on time. Thank you

Mr Howard

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Guaranteed Rent scheme?

Guaranteed Rent (can also be known as Rent to Rent) is a scheme designed to ensure that a landlord has minimal hassle when letting their property. We lease your property from you for a period of time and then rent the property to other tenants on your behalf, taking full control of the property management.

What size properties do you accept & in what areas?

We are able to take any size property onto the Guaranteed Rent scheme. We have a high demand for 1-4 bedroom properties. We will take properties in any London borough or surrounding area.

Is the Guaranteed Rent scheme worth it for Landlords?

We believe Guaranteed Rent is worth it for landlords because you receive consistent rent payments that are guaranteed, even if the property is empty. This gives landlords financial peace of mind, knowing that they will always be paid.

What is the maximum length of contract for Guaranteed Rent?

We offer landlords flexible contracts however of 1 – 5 years to suit your needs but can offer contracts up to 10 years for certain properties.

What happens to my property when a tenant moves out?

When a tenant vacates the property during the contract, we will arrange for works to bring the property back up to the required standard, this includes painting, cleaning, fixing damages, etc. We also pay for the council tax and utility bills when the property is empty.

How much rent can I achieve through Guaranteed Rent?

We always like to see a property before a valuation is given. This gives us the opportunity to check the property meets the required standards and also ensures that you are maximising the rent on your property.

Will you complete works before the property is rented?

Once a property is on our Guaranteed Rent scheme, we are able to complete both small repairs and large refurbishments and are able to offer landlords payment plans to help spread the cost.

Who do you work with on the Guaranteed Rent scheme?

We work with most London boroughs. This means that we are able to achieve the best possible rent and rent the property in the quickest time possible.

​Alongside managing properties in Barking, we have successfully tendered and been awarded contracts to supply properties to a large number of local councils across London & Essex to rent to their tenants. We are not tied to one borough and are able to offer your property to numerous boroughs to ensure you achieve the best possible rental income.
