August 2023 update:
Notification of afternoon closure Friday 18th August 2023
Landlords & Tenants, you are in safe hands
With over 60 years combined Lettings & property management experience between us, we guarantee that the service you will receive will be efficient, professional, friendly and you will find our staff knowledgeable. We constantly invest into training to enable our staff to deliver the service that our customers deserve. Our aim above anything else is to make your experience of being a Landlord or a Tenant a good one. We cover the whole of Northamptonshire and we are always happy to take on a property anywhere in the County.
We believe that knowledge is power! We are constantly learning in the ever changing world of the private rental sector. So many changes have taken place in the last few years with more to come since the Governments levelling up directive was announced. Perhaps the most significant is the Renters Reform Bill & the subsequent publication of the white paper in June 2022 pertaining to the planned abolishment of section 21 notices. Changes are coming for sure, we so not know the exact timelines but we expect it will be at some point in early to mid 2024 . The Renters reform bill has been in the mainstream media recently, and landlords need to know what is coming.
All Letting Agents should have client money protection insurance. In the past, rogue letting Agents have acted appallingly leaving Tenants and Landlords out if pocket. Unfortunately, the minority who were breaking the rules spoilt if for the honest ones. We have a ring fenced Client money bank account and hold full client money protection insurance & we are proud members of the UK Association of Letting Agents & The property Redress Scheme.
Landlords, chose from our tenant find service, or fully managed service
If you understand and are prepared to comply with all the legislation (there’s currently around 150 pieces relating to the private rental sector) then our find tenant only silver service is perfect for you. We will simply advertise your property, complete the pre tenancy checks on the applicants, draw up a tenancy agreement and then hand it over to you.
Most Landlords prefer an Agent to handle the day to day management of their rented properties. Our full management Gold service is a comprehensive management package where you leave all the hard work to us.

The Tenants fee ban became law on 1st June 2019 meaning that Landlords & Agents are no longer allowed to charge certain fees to Tenants.
