Landlords/Investors – Why use Property Keeper?
Other serviced accommodation companies will rent your property from you at a fixed rate. Property Keeper pays all of the revenue to you and charges a small commission. Our disruptive business model removes the middle man (the serviced accommodation tenant) and puts all their would be profits back into your pocket.
Serviced accommodation offers great tax savings for your business including exemption from section 24 and the ability to claim capital improvement on setup costs.
You do not need a HMO license for large properties.
We can produce the figures for you fast and free. Simply call us on 01604 589 939.
Active management, not set and forget
Property Keeper is actively involved with the performance of your property. If bookings aren’t where they should be, our team are on hand to react. During the COVID-19 lockdown month the majority of our units were fully booked.

Net vs Gross commission
Unlike other management agencies, Property Keeper only charges commission on the net booking revenue.
A common tactic used by agencies is to charge gross commission on all revenue collected at your property, this can lead to significantly higher fees.
Once you factor in cleaning fees and OTA commission, you could be paying as much as 25% commission to an agency charging 15% gross commission. With Property Keeper, 15% means 15% and never more.
Our goal is always to keep our fees transparent and as low as possible. The price caps we apply further protects your property from runaway fees with high value bookings.
It’s important that our fees are economically sustainable.
As your property business grows, we want to ensure our fees further adapt to increase your profitability.
Multiple property landlords seeking expansion will be able to renegotiate lower commission rates with their account manager.
The short term rentals market is dynamic in nature. Therefore, it’s important a management agency offers you flexibility when needed.

We List Your Property On The Best Booking Portals
Property Keeper housed my 12 man team in a 7 bedroom house in Bradville. The house was immaculate and the lads really appreciated the smart TV’s.
I was undercharging and blissfully unaware of the fee’s associated with using OTAs. Property Keeper sorted it all out for me.
Im happy with what you are doing but you only offered management of 2 of the 4 properties I had. Im not sure why you wont take on the flats in kingsthorpe
Thank you so much Jay and Lee for your superhuman multilingual talents!!! I would never have secured that long term booking on my own.
I’m not a regular client of Property Keeper, however, I use them exclusively to optimise my own clients properties on Airbnb and Expedia. They’ve got most of my apartments on the first page of Airbnb. If I wasn’t a property manager myself I’d be a fully fledged client. Thanks for all your help Jay.
Management contract of 4 units in Central MK. Very happy with the returns. Started achieving the best possible occupancy by month 2. Took a furniture supply deal on lease. Would refer PK to existing buy to let landlords.
Feedback is everything
Operating serviced accommodation is far more than admin and house keeping. Guests need to feel valued and more importantly check-in needs to be smooth. All our guests are sent an SMS which gives clear instructions for check in. Our mobile site designed to be easy and requires no registration. Guests have the option to instantly call us if they get stuck.
Guest check-outs are followed up with reviews and an upsell of direct bookings for any corporate clients or individuals interested in long stays.
