Residential Property Specialists

Family run and independent since 1974


Our belief in going above and beyond to offer a reliable and friendly service does not just apply to our landlords, our tenants are equally important to us. We manage a broad range of properties from studio flats to large homes and will do all that we can to ensure the right tenants finds the right property. From there we will always be on hand to help you feel at home. See what we currently have available here or feel free to drop us a line if you want to go over your requirements.


As landlords ourselves we saw too often our monthly costs adorned with extras. Paying for new tenancy agreements, arranging a repair, inspecting a property! We believe all of these ‘extras’ should all be included as standard with the full management of your property, and that is why you won’t see us charging extra for any services. So, you genuinely do get what you see from us; full management at one cost.

Our Services

We understand the value of your rental property, and how important it is that it is managed properly. Finding the right tenant is of course therefore, the number one priority.

Whilst we understand it is paramount to minimise a void period, it is also key to find the right tenant for your property.

New landlord incentives

We are confident that given the chance to manage your property we will convince you that your investment is in the best hands. But we understand there is a lot of choice out there, and it’s easy to talk the talk! As a thank you for trusting us to look after your property, we are pleased to be able to offer a choice of offers to any new landlords. As a warm welcome and thank you from us, you can choose from one of the following welcome presents.

EPC certificate
month’s commission
Complimentary annual
Gas safety check

Complimentary EPC certificate

Before letting a property, it needs a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). Legally your property currently needs to be above an E rating. Should your property not have a valid one, we will arrange for this to be carried out for you. They are valid for 10 years.

Complimentary Inventory

Whilst a lot of landlords haven’t always seen the value of having a full inventory carried out prior to a tenancy starting, it is now more important than ever. Any claim against a tenants deposit is near on impossible without an impartial inventory from before the tenants enter your property. We’ll arrange a full inventory report for you!

Complimentary Month’s commission

If you’ve already ticked all your boxes and have your certificates and checks, then as a welcome on board with us we would like to offer you a month without our usual commission charge.

Complimentary Annual Gas Safety Check

All properties need their gas appliances checked annually by a qualified Gas Registered engineer. A new tenant will need to be given a copy of the most recent certificate at the beginning of any tenancy. Whilst we can of course arrange these annual checks for you as the tenancy goes on, if you need one, the first one is on us!

Existing Landlords

Over the years, many of our existing landlords have referred our services to others and we want to pass on our thanks to them by offering a months’ commission free to any new landlord they introduce to us.

    I have been a tenant of Brian Marshalls for years now. This is the best estate agents I have ever had. The people are helpful, friendly and quick to sort out any problems. They are a family run business and I really think this makes the difference. – Elaine

    Nick and the team have been managing properties for us for longer than we care to remember and we would highly recommend them to any landlord looking for a managing agent. Not living locally in the area ourselves, we can trust that our properties are being well looked after and the team will always do their best to resolve an issue as quickly as possible. – Mr and Mrs Younge
