Monmouthshire Letting Service to offer landlords free advice and support

Monmouthshire County Council’s lettings service will offer its unique knowledge and guidance to a range of towns across the county this summer. Monmouthshire Letting Service (MLS), which prides itself on providing a ‘no fee hassle free’ lettings experience, hopes to encourage more landlords to sign up to the service.

Monmouthshire Letting Service (MLS) is a letting agency with a difference where both landlord and tenant are listened to and valued equally. The team have a breadth of experience and are eager to offer advice and support to help landlords with the daunting journey of letting out a home. 

The friendly team can help landlords get the best tenants for their properties. MLS offers free quarterly property inspections, a non-emergency repairs service, out of hours emergency call out and guaranteed rental payments.
