How do I create email alerts and saved searches?

Setting up email alerts (property alerts) are a great way to keep up to date with properties coming on the market and a way to not miss that potential dream home, as you can receive summary emails of properties which might interest you, that match your search criteria.

On the other hand, you can save your property searches so that you can view and run them quickly, and these can also be configured to ensure you receive email alerts for when for when there are new properties in the UK that match your search criteria.
