A reliable and friendly service to Landlords

Hillside Property Management is operated by me - a Private Landlord with over 10 years property management and letting experience across a wide range of tenants (professional tenants, students and families on housing benefit). I am a member of the National Landlords Association and an Accredited Landlord by EMLAS for our own properties.

To ensure a professional approach to managing properties I have attended courses and workshops to become an Accredited Landlord by the local council. I also regularly attend meetings for Landlords arranged by the NLA, EMLAS and the local council to keep abreast of issues relating to renting properties in and around Nottingham. I have public liability and professional indemnity insurance to cover myself and the Landlords I work for and I am a member of a recognised property redress scheme.


  • I manage other Landlords properties to the same high standard as I manage my own

  • Most new tenants are found online so to get maximum exposure I use online letting agents to advertise accommodation to let on all the main property websites including Rightmove, Gumtree, Zoopla etc

  • To accommodate working tenants I can do viewings any time any day or evening or weekend.

  • To minimise the risks of finding a bad tenant I always carry out full credit checks and references on all potential tenants

  • I prepare the tenancy agreements that meet all legal requirements using the NLA website - and can tailor the agreement to any specific or special requirements.

  • I do a full photographic and written inventory prior to move in to record the condition of the property at move in and do a full familiarisation of the house on move in - including location of all gas, water and electricity isolation valves and switches.

  • I take the deposit and place it in the DPS - a government approved deposit holding scheme and supply al the deposit information to the tenant

  • If the tenant is claiming housing benefit I will liaise with the benefit offices to confirm the amount of payments and to whom

  • To minimise misuse of the property I carry out regular property checks every 2 / 3 months to ensure any defects / leaks etc are identified early

  • I send visit reports to the Landlord and statements on request

  • I carry out any necessary minor repairs during the property checks (using tools I carry in my car)  like broken light switches repair/replacing door hinges etc - at no additional charge.

  • If a tenant reports a problem I will visit the property to check out the problem and if I cannot repair it myself I will report to the Landlord prior to calling out any trades (unless an emergency like a broken boiler in mid-winter)

  • There are no additional charges when I am called out by the tenant for any problems and no charge if I can fix the problem at the same time.

  • I do not have any arrangement with any trades for any commission for work I put their way - ie. I have no incentive to find any unnecessary maintenance work.

  • I organise the annual gas safety certificate (which typically for a combi type boiler is about 45)

  • On move out I will carry out a property inspection, compare it to the move in inventory and photographs and sort out the deposit.

  • I have good reliable trade contacts for any work required to repair or prepare a property to rent.


In a nutshell - Landlords pay me to minimise the risk of taking on a bad tenant, regularly check their properties to ensure the property is being cared for, to organise repairs and maintenance (that I cannot do myself) and to collect and to promptly pass on the rent to the Landlord.
If you are looking to invest in a property then I will be happy to look at any properties you have shortlisted with you.

I have no employees, no high street shop or offices so my overheads are low. Your one and only contact is me - if for any reason I cannot answer your call (say if i am driving) I will always call you back.

My fee is a flat 9% of rent taken (no vat) for all the services described above
plus an initial 125 to cover advertising and credit checks to find new tenants (not applicable if taking over an existing tenancy)

A fee which is good value compared to the high street Letting Agent who will add an additional 20% vat to any fees/expenses. I do not take commission (usually 10%) from tradesmen for work done - which is a hidden cost in your bills. You will always speak to me (and I always return calls if I cannot answer whilst driving etc) and I am open 24/7 (preferably 9am to 9pm).

Also I am keen to find a good tenant from the start and keep them as a tenant for as long as possible by providing a good and fair service. Many letting agents are keen for a change in tenant as an opportunity to charge all sorts of fees to the new tenant and Landlord.

I am a Chartered Engineer and have worked for over 25 years in industry managing many medium sized factories across the east midlands - I am now "semi-retired". I am well used to organising and planning and sorting all kinds of problems whether relating to people or operational issues. I now  manage our own properties (7 across Nottingham and Derbyshire) and 20+ properties for other private Landlords - see my portfolio. These Landlords either do not live in Nottingham or simply do not wish to get involved with the day to day activities of managing their properties. This provides me with a flexible part time self employment to supplement my other income sources.
