Grand Union Living specialises in residential lettings and property management across Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire.
We strive to offer the best quality service in letting and managing properties and aim to make the process as smooth and transparent for you as we possibly can.
You will be managed by our dedicated lettings team who will take you through the whole process from your very first enquiry right through to moving into your new home, and your lettings agent will manage your tenancy throughout until you decide that you would like to move on.
We are able to offer a 24 hour, 365 days a year emergency repairs service so should the unthinkable happen we are only a phone call away. We believe that this kind of service is what sets us apart from other competitors in the market, along with the flexibility of our tenancies and the fact that we do not work on commission so our sole objective is to get you the home that is right for you.
