Cosgroves Southsea Offices


Cosgroves is a long-established, family-owned and operated business. What sets us apart is our down-to-earth, pragmatic business ethics, with honesty and approachability a key part of our company. We will provide you with the information you need to make letting your property as efficient and beneficial as possible, not vacant promises.

We tailor our service to meet property owners’ needs, whether that’s a simple ‘introduction only’ service or our ‘full management’ package – marketing your property, sourcing the tenant, carrying out reference checks, preparing tenancy agreements and collecting rent.

Why choose Cosgroves?

Our Introduction only and Full Management packages both include:

  • An initial inspection of the property – providing you with property particulars, advice on its rental value and potential target markets.
  • Marketing the property – advertising through property marketing websites, taking photographs and carrying out accompanied viewings.
  • Finding suitable tenants – conducting reference checks and preparing a Tenancy Agreement.
  • Pre-move in – final check of the property and logging the deposit with a government authorised tenancy deposit scheme.
  • Move-in – checking tenants into the property and making them fully aware of how everything works.
  • Completion – collecting the pre-agreed rent payment and transferring this into your bank account.

Full Management includes the following extras:

  • Rental payments – each month we will collect the rent and pay this over to your account, providing you with receipts for these payments. We check daily on any rent payments which are late, taking on the responsibility of chasing the tenant to make sure it is paid, and keeping you up to date with our findings, so you aren’t left in the dark.
  • Regular property inspections – we will visit the property every four months to ensure that it is being properly cared for. We will then send you an inspection report.
  • Organising maintenance issues – the tenant reports straight to us and we subsequently arrange any works that need carrying out.
  • End of tenancy – a full and thorough checkout of the property is conducted and if necessary any dilapidations repaired before the deposit is returned to the tenant(s).

Please see our  Terms and Conditions.
