"Balliol Property Management Ltd have over 100 private rented properties in the Newcastle area and a fair proportion of these have been let through the Newcastle Private Rented Service. The service they provide is exceptional. I can rest assured that all the relevant checks have been carried out and all the relevant paperwork will be in order when the tenants are signed in. Recently a tenant applied when the RDS checked out the tenants history they found that there had been arrears and antisocial behaviour and this saved a costly mistake."
