We are delighted to announce that Berkeleys Estate Agents have launched a premier lettings and management service in Poole, as part of our expansion plans for 2013.
The decision to expand into lettings services comes as a result of increasingly strong demand for rental properties in the Canford Cliffs, Sandbanks and surrounding Poole areas. Berkeleys has also responded to clients’ demands to work with a professionally accredited and industry regulated property specialist, offering regulated client money management.
Our Director, Jeremy Priestley, gives an overview: “Berkeleys have an excellent knowledge of the property market within the premium priced sector. Home owners who make a significant investment in property to let expect a premium service, underpinned by the reassurance of a professional, financially secure partner. We are unusual locally, in that we are able to offer a lettings service accredited by the RICS – a sign of property professionalism, worldwide.”
“The rate at which the lettings market has grown over the past two years, as well as the growing number of home owners wishing to secure a prompt rental income from their property, have together reaffirmed our decision to launch our new lettings service,’ Hannah Bookham, Head of Lettings explains, “Berkeleys Lettings will coexist alongside our very well established sales operation. It was logical next step to open a dedicated lettings department in Canford Cliffs to service the local area.”
Berkeleys Lettings will be providing solid valuation knowledge and an industry regulated service to private and professional landlords, property investors, buy-to-let clients and tenants. Membership of the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA) means that clients can be confident of receiving a quality, accredited, professional service. In addition, as a member of the RICS – the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors – Berkeleys is regulated by the highest standards of competence and integrity including RICS audits and controls. Tenant deposits, monthly rental income, fast transfer of payments, transparent fees and legally compliant rental contracts are all safely administered within this regime.
With an experienced Lettings team and full technical support and systems already in place, Berkeleys is ready to service clients immediately in 2013.
