Why we are No. 1

Omarentals are the recognised leader within the property lettings and management sector of Omagh & Co. Tyrone. We are not an estate agent with a lettings department - we are 100% focused on lettings, providing a wealth of knowledge and experience in this profession. Our property team let out and manage more rental property than any other agent in County Tyrone. Omarentals have carried out over 3,000 lettings and have hundreds of properties under management for a diverse range of landlords.

9. Dealing with tenant problems and repairs

During a tenancy we can deal with all problems and repairs as they arise. The majority of repairs are usually minor but have to be fixed as soon as possible e.g. a leaking shower; heating not working; or appliances breaking down.

Both landlords and tenants can become frustrated when it comes to repairs but in today's world it is vital that they are dealt with efficiently and professionally so that the tenancy runs smoothly and the property is kept in proper repair.
