Addison Townends provides a range of letting and management services based on the experience, skills and expertise of our lettings team. You can be assured that we have a detailed understanding of the lettings and management sector and will ensure that you are given the best possible service.
Over the last few years and, following the introduction of the 1988 Housing Act which offers greater protection and possession rights to Landlords, there has been resurgence in the lettings market.
People from all walks of life are looking to become involved in the rental market whether Investors, Companies, people who need to relocate with their work or homeowners who are having difficulty in selling their own properties. Increasingly, large numbers of people are entering the ‘Buy to Let’ sector as an opportunity for investment.
As a result, Landlords have come to expect extensive knowledge and expertise from the Agency they choose to act in their interests.
Our people take their work very seriously, operating with a professionalism that the best tenants expect. We’re up to date with all the latest legislation and we are members of ARLA and The Property Ombudsman Scheme for Lettings.
We’re also a pleasure to deal with. People with high standards want to work for businesses with the same high standards. That’s how we’re able to attract the kind of people we do – helpful, energetic, scrupulous and proactive. So much so we’re confident you’ll enjoy the experience of dealing with Addison Townends too.
We recognize that estate agents don’t have a great image. But we also know that the best agents are highly valued because they know intimately the area in which they rent property. They know the people who live there and they know the different streets and properties inside and out. Our core principle is ‘Local know how – better results’, and we expect our knowledge to make the difference for you. We aim to be an agency that understands the local area better than any other agent and it’s why the properties we let don’t stand around un-let for too long!
Property Management relieves stress for both landlords and tenants. In our experience, the best tenants are more attracted to properties that are professionally managed by an expert. Distance between a landlord and tenant is more likely to result in a longer and more secure tenancy. For more information about the service provided by our Property Management Team view our PROPERTY MANAGEMENT SERVICES (link to page). Equally, our Renewals team are on hand to discuss the end of a tenancy with the landlord and tenant – and if the market has changed since the initial contract was signed, then we’ll use our market insight and negotiating skills to attain the current market value for your property.
Getting the right tenant for your property depends on the right people seeing it. So for us, marketing is not a side issue – it’s at the heart of what we do. We advertise on and off. As well as our bespoke website, we also advertise on all the major property portals including Primelocation, Zoopla and Rightmove.
