Valentine's Day, the most romantic day of the year, is just around the corner. The shops are filled with cards and gifts designed to help you to let your partner know just how much you love them.

Now, let's shift our focus to a different kind of love – the love we have for our homes. Similar to the stages in our relationships with our partners, our bond with our homes undergoes various phases.

There's the initial encounter (viewing), asking them on a first date (making a rental application), courtship (submitting references), commitment (signing the tenancy agreement), the honeymoon phase (adoring every aspect of your home), complacency (taking your home for granted), boredom (losing interest in your home and starting to look at other properties), and finally, the break-up (handing in your notice).

If your relationship with your home has reached the complacency or boredom stage, perhaps it's time to revitalise your relationship with it by making some changes that will benefit both of you. Whether it's rearranging furniture, decluttering, or committing to a complete redecoration (always get your landlord’s permission first), changes, however small, can reignite your love for your home.

If after making some changes you still feel like your relationship with your home cannot be saved then at least you know that the expense of moving is necessary.

Letting agents are the matchmakers of the property world so if your tenants and your property in Kent have reached the end of their relationship we will gladly help you to handle their break-up with empathy and sensitivity.

Dockside Kent can handle the entire check-out process and help you and your tenants to part on amicable terms.

We will then help your property to find a new tenant who will love it as much as your current tenants once did. If we have another property that we think is suitable for your current tenants needs then we can also help them to decide if it is the right match for them.

Love can't be rushed. Some tenants make an offer on a first viewing, experiencing love at first sight, while others may need six visits before deciding to commit – a testament to the gradual growth of affection.

We can help to guide you through the entire lettings process. No matter how lucky or unlucky in love you are we will find your property its perfect tenant/tenants.

One thing is definitely true. If you instruct us to find your property the perfect new tenant, you will fall head over heels in love with our service and care.

If you are ready to find your property its perfect tenants then give us a call on 01634 393 700 or send us an email to and we will make sure that your property finds someone who will love it like it deserves.
