United we stand, divided we fight! FOR everyone involved in the business of Management and Letting Rights an important maxim is to concentrate on the things that unite us, rather than those that divide us.

Travel anxiety is the fear of visiting an unfamiliar place. It can also involve the stress that comes with planning your travels. Even if you have no history of anxiety, the idea of being outside familiar territory can throw you into panic mode. There’s a lot of life affirming stuff on social media these days. There’s also a stack of people leading us to believe they are leading fruitful and happy lives with not a care in the world. I contend that much of this has the potential to give us a warped view of the world and some unrealistic expectations. In fact, I thinkRead More →

The last time we launched a new site version was 2016 so it was long overdue for a facelift! Due to the significant traffic the site receives these days we’ve opted for a graduated upgrade where we’ll overhaul various sections of the site on a piecemeal basis to reduce the overall disruption and minimise the learning curve for our users. We started with the homepage because it’s the FACE of the website. We’ve gone for a lazy load approach that rapidly speeds up the load time of objects and graphics and improves the user experience. We’ve streamlined element design and standardise functionality, improved phone andRead More →
