Looking for a Good Letting Agent? You've found it.
  • paragraph

    Whatever your needs, we've got it covered
    We handle Residential and Commercial Properties.

    We have many different packages, some you'll be familiar with and others you might never have come across before.
    Please take the time to read through them below.
    If there's anything you're unclear about - just give us a call.

    You Just Need a Good Tenant?

    Whether you are an experienced landlord or a novice, our Tenant Find Service could be just what you're looking for.
    Basically in a nutshell, we will professionally market your property for you in the Local Press, on ALL Major Property Portals, and in our Town Centre Office.
    Not only this, but we'll also check our database to see who is looking for a property like yours.
    You'd be amazed at how quickly we'll find you a fully referenced suitable tenant.

    Bespoke Landlord Services?
    Our bespoke service is perfect for self managing Landlords who may just require help with one thing or another. For example... maybe you live a long way from your property and just want us to do an interim inspection, or check if the tenant has abandoned your property. Maybe you're having problems getting your rent in?
    We could go and visit your property, speak to your tenant to see if a solution can be reached. Usually we will get your rental payments back on track, but if this fails we can evict them for you?

    Here are some other 'Pay as You Go' services:

    • Full Referencing of Applicants
    • Full Inventories at Move In.
    • Up-to-date Tenancy Agreements for any scenario eg: Bedsits, Lodgers, Assured Shorthold Tenancies, Company Lets, and more..
    • Document Preparation, Signing & Witnessing (eg Guarantor Deeds etc..).
    • Managing a Tenancy Exit
    • Serving Legal Notices. eg Section 13, 21, 8 etc
    • Mediation.
    • Arrears Management
    • Fixed Fee Eviction Service
    • Fixed Fee Debt Recovery Services

    Rent Collection Service.
    Normally used in conjunction with a Tenant Find Service where we move a tenant in and then just collect the rent and pass it over to you.
    Other examples where this service is popular include situations where a tenant is frequently late with their rent. Our intervention would usually result in payments being made on time again including the recovery of arrears where appropriate.

    Full Property Management.
    Our Full Property Management Service is our most popular service by far.
    Our complete Hassle Free property management service affords you the peace of mind knowing that your tenant, property and rent payments are all being looked after. Available with or without the Property Maintenance facility.
    FREE RENTAL GUARANTEE & FREE LEGAL PROTECTION is only available with our Fully Managed Service.

    HMO Management.
    HMO Management is a specialist area and something we have a lot of experience of.
    If you have a HMO or would like to discuss the opportunities that HMOs offer call us and speak to our Lettings Director. We can often deliver yields in excess of 25% with most HMOs.
    It is a specialist field and needs to be manged correctly and closely. HMO Management is not something a traditional letting agent would understands so it's imperative you have the correct agent.

    Property Maintenance.
    Whether it's a burst pipe or a boiler change, we can help with this.
    Our fully experienced maintenance team fully understands the mindset of the landlord and tenant.
    If you require ongoing maintenance or just the odd job we'd be happy to assist.
    PS Our Gas Safety Certificates are the cheapest around. (It's all about yields!)

    So if you looking for a Pro-Active Agent that will get you the best returns on your Property Investment AND take deal with ALL the hassle for you?
    Or if you looking for an agent just to find you a good tenant because you can take care of the rest?

    Whatever your needs we have a package for you, we can do as much or as little as you like.

    Ask about our FREE RENTAL GUARANTEE PACKAGE with our managed properties. These also come with FREE LEGAL COVER at No Extra Cost!

    Contact us today to see how we can help.
    You'll be so glad you did.
    We're open 7 days a week, weekdays til 8pm.

    Rent - to - Buy
    Imagine.... selling your property for the FULL market price AND getting rental income too?

    The Rent-to-Buy
    sector is a specialist area and requires an in-depth knowledge of how these contracts work and need to be set up correctly if they are to be successful for all parties.

    This is an area we have been working in for many years and we have a brilliant legal department that can draft up fair and bespoke contracts to suit both landlord/vendor and buyer, to create win-wins all round.

    Another way to look at Rent-to-Buy is this:
    Instead of someone just renting your property, what they are actually doing is renting it and buying it at the same time.
    The Tenant Buyer will put down a significant deposit - usually 5% - 25% of the pre-agreed purchase price.
    They will then make monthly Installments (made up of Rent + Purchase Installments) for the remaining term until completion of the sale.
    The timescales are flexible and usually range form 3 to 7 years depending on the circumstances of the Tenant Buyer.
    The added bonus with this alternative is if the Tenant Buyer fails to complete the sale at the end of the agreed term, YOU the landlord vendor keep all the monies paid. PLUS the tenant buyer is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the property.

    Our Rent-to-Buy Services are perfect for Landlords (or Vendors) who may wish to sell a property but who are prevented from doing so for a variety of reasons. AND equally useful for people struggling to get onto the housing ladder at the moment who are fed up of paying out 'Dead Money' on renting. Rent-to-Buy is a truly useful win-win situation!

    So it is possible to sell your property for the FULL market price AND getting rental income too.

    If you would like to know more about these services we recommend you call our office and speak to our lettings director who will be more than happy to explain things in simple terms.

  • paragraph

    Rent - to - Rent ('Guaranteed Rent')
    Our specialist 'Rent to Rent' package is ideal for landlords who just want the rental income without the concerns of ongoing maintenance costs.

    In general, most of our 'Rent to Rent' schemes include a Guaranteed Monthly Rental Income with NO maintenance or management costs. Win -Win!

    This unique alternative to full management is ideal for landlords who are looking for a guaranteed income no matter what.

    To learn more about this useful alternative to full management, contact our Letting Director who will be happy to go through the benefits of this Win-Win package.

Come let us take care of you....

    Everyone Knows We Only Do Nice Properties..
    Anyone who knows us, knows we only do nice properties, and we only work with Landlords that will look after their properties and tenants alike.

    We believe this is key to our success. After all... who wants to live in a house that's damp, neglected, and of sub-standard? Exactly!

    And when there's a problem WE want it sorting as much as you do, and quick!

  • paragraph

    So you've seen a house you like. What next?
    So what next?
    Well, the process is quite simple.
    Firstly, please check that you meet the criteria to rent one of our properties.

    • All prospective tenants will need Good References and be able to provide a Home Owner Guarantor.
    • You will need to be able to prove a household income of at least 30 times the monthly rent. For example, if the rent is £500 pcm, you will need to have at least 30 x £500 (which is £15,000) a year coming in.
    • Prior to moving into one of our properties you will need to be able to pay 1 month's rent AND a Bond/Deposit. The deposit will normally be equal to a months rent.
    • All prospective tenants will be required to complete an application form and submit this with supporting documentation including Proof of ID, together with the application fee (£150) to our office for processing. Please note the application fees are NON REFUNDABLE and covers up to two people. The application process normally takes 3-4 working days, after which we will contact you to discuss moving in dates.


    If you have any questions about the above feel free to contact our office and speak to a member of our team.


  • paragraph

    Not found what you're looking for?
    If you can't find a property that suits your requirements, or if you're planning of moving sometime in the future, we strongly recommend you register with us.
    By registering with us you will be alerted of properties as soon as they come in. We will also be able to advise of properties that are coming up - so you can get in there first!

    Registering is easy. You can register on our website, call into our office, or call us... do which ever is easiest for you.
  • paragraph

    Benefits & Incentives from our Partners

    Here are a few....

    • Virgin Media
    • Sky
    • Discounted Gas, Electricity, Telephone, Broadband & Mobile Phone Deals
    • Cashback Card for use at most major retailers (eg Sainsbury's, Argos, Boots etc...)


    We are adding new benefits all the time.

    Looking After You  - 24hr Tenant Support Line
    We understand that at times there can be problems, and when there is WE want it sorting as much as YOU do, and quick!

    As I'm writing this - it's a nice (but cold) Sunday morning in December. It's 9.05 and our 24hr Tenant Support Line has just received a call from someone who's boiler has stopped working.
    The problem appears to be something we can't sort out over the phone, so we sent one of our Gas Safe Engineers out who arrived within the hour!!
    Not even the likes of British Gas can offer this kind of service? (See our Testimonials page for full details).

    Now I'm not saying it's always like this, but it's a good example of how we like to get things sorted as soon as possible.

Thinking of Selling?
  • paragraph

    Welcome to Ainsworth Lord Estates
    Welcome to Ainsworth Lord Estates a family run independent Estate Agent that has fast become the area's Agent of Choice.

    We have brought the drive and enthusiasm back to the property market on our patch. As a result we are able to boast the shortest selling time (on average) of any agent in our area.

    We believe that the process of selling or buying a property should be as "stress free" as possible, at every stage we will work with you to maximize the financial potential of your biggest asset and make this important time as hassle free as we possibly can whilst keeping you fully informed along the way.

    We are a small and highly motivated team, where we aim to exceed our client's expectations using our experience, local knowledge and professionalism at all times (Check out out Testimonials Section to see what some of our clients have to say).

    We have the enthusiasm, drive and opportunity to deliver a business that we know brings breath of fresh air to the estate agency market, and our results prove this.

    But we are also at the other end of the telephone for an "informal chat" to discuss your property requirements whether your thinking of buying or selling.
  • paragraph

    Not sure whether to sell or not?
    We speak with lots of people who think that selling their home to make that move is the thing they 'have to do'. And for some this isn't always the right thing to do and sometimes not possible.... for a variety of reasons. This isn't always the case, and may not be the best strategy either.

    We are great creative thinkers and have a 'Power Team' of experts on hand who can evaluate your situation and advise on the best move forward.
    You'd be amazed at some of the solutions we have to offer that will get you that dream home AND provide you with a lucrative investment income too.
  • paragraph

    How do we get such great results?
    When we are instructed to sell a property our mission is to get it sold. In order to do this we follow a simple process with a strategic approach. Sticking a board up and putting a few pictures on the internet is simply not enough these days!

    Unfortunately there are many agents that seem to think that's fine. But not us. We do far more for our clients than any other agent in our area and that's how we get the results we do.

    Why not call in and speak to our Sales Team and we'll happily discuss our unique approach to getting you moving.

    Remember, we're open 7 days a week - weekdays til 8pm

    Our top 10 tips to help sell your home
    Kerb appeal: They say you can only make one "first impression," and people usually form their first impression within 30 seconds. The front of your house is a good place to spend a little extra time and money. Plant flowers, trim bushes, weed, pick up leaves, repaint your front door, replace tarnished house numbers or a dented mailbox, get a brand-new neutral doormat, park your old car somewhere else.

    Clean: Your home must sparkle! Spring Clean your house from top to bottom before putting on the market. Make sure your windows are clean inside and out too.

    Fix:
    Got a dripping tap or a cracked tile? These will send the wrong message to potential buyers. Getting all problems fixed before you put your house on the market is a smart idea.

    Eliminate Clutter:
    This may be the hardest rule of all! We love our clutter - it reflects our memories, hobbies, and values. But it doesn't sell homes! Clutter makes homes seem smaller and disorganized. (Have you ever noticed that the really expensive stores seem to have an expansive, clutter-free layout, while "cheap" stores are often a jumble of merchandise?) Even the ancient practice of Feng Shui has, as a central focus, the elimination of clutter.

    Neutralise:
    Neutral colours sell. It's a fact. Try to convey an image of quality and neutrality. Potential buyers walking through your home want to imagine themselves as the owners. If you use styles or colours they would never select, you've just turned them off. Stay high-quality, but neutral is safest.

    De-personalize: Remove objects that your potential buyers won't be able to identify with. For example, political and religious items may turn off whole groups of buyers, because they cannot "imagine" your home as their home. Buying a home is an emotional decision, and you want potential buyers to make an emotional connection with your home by being able to "see" themselves in it.

    Pets: Always keep your pets under control. Try confining them to a specific area. Although you may love your pets, they can be off-putting to other people, and smells can be offensive, so make sure there are no lingering odours in furniture or flooring, and if there is, get them cleaned before you sell. Litter trays should be removed before viewings.

    Define each area: Buyers need to know what each room is for, so that they can decide where they will place their own items. Sell the lifestyle and you'll sell your house.

    Accessories:
    By using the right accessories, you can enhance your rooms and create a feeling of unity by using harmonious colours. Use mirrors to reflect light and space, and use plants and fresh flowers to bring life to rooms and add a natural fragrance.

    Fresh smells:
    Try and keep windows vented where ever possible. Wherever possible try and avoid cooking food with strong odours before viewings. Use lightly scented air fresheners if windows cannot be left open. Remember bad odours can be off putting to potential purchasers.

Buying....
  • paragraph

    No one works harder to find your buyer
    • paragraph

      • The perfect buyer gets you the best price in a time frame that works for you. Everything we do is geared to finding the perfect buyer for your home. Here are four reasons to work with us when you sell your home.
      • We know and love our Patch When you instruct us to sell your home we'll use all our insight to your advantage, finding you the perfect buyer, faster. 
      • We work longer hours than other Agents We know what it's like to find somewhere when you're working, so we open later than other Agents so we're available between 9am and 8pm every weekday, PLUS we open every weekend including Sundays! Simply put, if you choose a traditional 9-5pm Agent, you may well be missing out on the perfect buyer. We'll make sure you don't. 
      • Our marketing know-how Knowing the type of people who live and want to live in your area allows us to target our marketing accurately and find the right buyer, fast. Of course, we will present your home on Rightmove & Zoopla and every other relevant property site, but we do much more to gain maximum exposure to find you the perfect buyer. We know the papers and magazines and websites your perfect buyer reads, so your home will be visible there too. Good design, professional photography and carefully chosen words mean that when the perfect buyer sets eyes on your home, we make sure it makes a great impression. 
      • Our people know how to find the perfect buyer Our people work with one aim in mind - finding the perfect buyer for your home and securing the best possible price.

    What our clients have to say...
    • Introduction

      Word of mouth is so important to our business
      Dealing with the sale of your home or property is one of the most important things you will do in your life, and to most of us it usually involves dealing with large amounts of money that has taken years of hard work to pay for.
      For this very reason we believe that selling someone's property has to be handled in such a way as to get the best possible price that the market will pay, in the most effective time.
      Once the sale is on its extremely important it proceeds as smoothly and efficiently as possible to minimize the possibility of the sale collapsing.
      For all these reasons its important that these transactions are given the seriousness they deserve which is why we continually look for ways of improving how we do things and develop our team to give our clients the best possible results.
      Here below are some comments from clients who we have acted for.
      Full verification is available and if you would like to speak personally with any of them this can be arranged too.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      a positive altogether different approach
      It may be hard to believe but one agent had Kim Tinsley's home in Hawkshaw Avenue, Darwen month after month and year after year and despite numerous drops in price - her agent just couldn't get it sold. Kim was keen to move to make herself mortgage free - she asked ALE to help - they took it on and - its a fact it was sold with a few days!

      My home had been up for sale for such a long time with another local agent. I felt as I had taken him on I should go with it and of course sometimes these things just are not easy. We kept dropping the price and nothing happened - and I become so frustrated.

      I noticed ALE's new office in the town and how much more pro-active they were with extra web sites and media coverage and so on - so I decided to talk to them. Well I was delighted. They were friendly professional and confident and had a positive altogether different approach to other agents it seemed to me. They were adamant they could sell my home - and they did in no time at all

      They even increased the asking price of my property and still sold it so quickly - I just couldn't believe it.

      They kept me informed and if there were any problems I could contact them all the time. They saw to it that I had the right legal help too in order to get the sale process done properly and quickly. It just went through so well and I am now settled into my new bungalow in Blackburn which I own completely with no mortgage. ALE gave me the confidence to finally make the move happen that I needed.I shall be recommending them to people I know for sure!

      they were the best when compared to the others.
      ALE was right for the Wrights - for sure. David and Cathryn Wright had tried to sell their home a while ago, but it didn't sell and so they took it off the market. They tried again a year or so later and they are on the move to their new home soon with their former home in Laneshaw Close well and truly sold, thanks to ALE.

      We had used a couple of agents in the past and to be fair but they really did not impress me at all so when we decided to sell again, we checked out a number of agents once more and this time included Ainsworth Lord Estates and they were far and away the best when compared to the others.

      When they came to see us, they seemed genuinely interested and understanding about ourselves and our property and they weren't salesy like others we saw. I just felt comfortable with their attitude. The property was marketed very well and we got a good number of viewings pretty quickly.

      Also the thing was that the people ALE sent to see the property were made fully aware about it. This property does have a small kitchen and quite often in the past with other agents they sent people round who were obviously unsuitable and hadn't been told the situation with the kitchen. So we spent all the time getting the place smart and then when the people came round they said they wanted a kitchen diner - so the whole effort was wasted. ALE made sure the people were the right people and knew all the features of the house. The service was professional and excellent and so we have got the property sold at last. ALE got us the full asking price too, which was important of course for our next move and they achieved what other agents couldn't. We have sold the property thanks to ALE - they did a good professional job and we were very pleased.

    • Seller Testimonial

      They have the right approach.
      Joanne's choice for her next home was a smart new build in Darwen - to get it she needed to sell her property in Baron St in good time - and with the right advice from ALE she has got it sold!

      I found out about ALE in the local paper and they did seem to know the area very well and also knew about my type of property and its value and so on. They were helpful and did all they could do to get it sold. ALE did arrange for quite a few people to come round to view my home which was because ALE knew people who were looking and obviously they knew about all the marketing and so on . ALE advised me honestly about the price we could expect so it did go on the market properly and so had a good chance to be sold - and it has been, which is excellent.

      I would recommend ALE as an estate agent because they obviously know the area and what needs to be done. They have the right approach. Moving is not easy and you need the right support and ALE certainly helped get things sorted out for me so I could make my move to my new home.

      and ALE helped make it happen for us!
      Mary Simpson was keen to sell here property on Winward Close, Darwen as she planned to move back to Scotland. She called in ALE to make it happen - and it did... twice!

      We were very pleased with the service we got from Ainsworth Lord Estates when it came to selling our home...in fact they sold it twice for us, which shows they know what needs to be done when it comes to selling homes. We did in fact have a buyer lined up a while ago, but, we lost them because of their mortgage, but Ainsworth Lord Estates found another buyer quickly [within 3 days] with their advertising and so on - I am relieved to say and they were still able to negotiate the original price we needed. So now we have made our move to our new new home in Dundee in Scotland. The move went well and we're now settled - and ALE helped make it happen for us!

    • Seller Testimonial

      it all happened in good time and we felt confident
      We were very happy with the excellent service from Ainsworth Lord Estates - the marketing was good and they presented our home well to potential buyers ...and they were pleasant amenable and professional ... we were most happy with the time span for our home being sold and everything from our point of view happened in good time and we felt confident ... they did a good job for sure ...and so pleased were we, we felt we just had to pop in to the office with a thank you card ...to show our appreciation of a job well done. The house is sold and Ainsworth Lord certainly did us proud - and we were very pleased.

    • Seller Testimonial

      gave such a wonderful fantastic, personal service
      Eileen Tierney, a nurse felt it would be a struggle to sell her 4-bedroom home where she and her family live in Darwen but Ainsworth Lord Estates got it sold - and found her the perfect new home to move into as well..... says Eileen

      The company were so helpful and gave such a wonderful fantastic, personal service and they got my house sold for me in what I felt was a very good time in this current difficult market
      Everything was absolutely spot on in terms of the advertising and handling the viewings and so on and I was pleased with the fact that I got a really good price for my home which ALE negotiated very well for me. ...that was good news... it is not easy to get the price you need at the moment.
      I have been delighted with the whole sale really ...and also ALE have found me a home to move to as well......just right for me and the family ... we do have some very specific needs in terms of accommodation and ALE came up with exactly the right property - again at an excellent price which ALE negotiated. They are most professional and really know their business..that's for sure.
      Everything is going forward now and I hope to move to my new home in November. Things are going along nicely and with my daughter in law handling the legal side - she is a solicitor - everything is going very well.

      The business does everyone credit there and that's all really..there's only a need to say how fantastic and excellent as an agent they are. I was delighted with everything - marketing, how long they took to sell my home ..and the very good negotiation.... everything - nothing was too much trouble and its all worked out just right.

    • Seller Testimonial

      we made the right choice this time, for sure.
      Sheila and Keith Lowe had not one property but two to sell- so a double challenge for Ainsworth Lord Estates....

      Says Sheila, "We have dealt with other agents - and I have to say that this time everything went just as it should with Ainsworth Lord Estates...... in the past that has not been the case... we made the right choice this time with ALE for sure.

      I have known the company for a while, even before they opened in their new shop in the town centre. The properties in Cemetery Rd and Melville Avenue were both well handled.... and we got a good show online and in the press so that people came to see them and could get good details of the properties and what they offered. Cemetery Rd sold in eight weeks which is something special I'd say in this property market at the moment and we got the price we wanted to - so ALE must be doing something right for sure, I'd have to say that .... The other property was sold in a few months, but, again everything went very well and we got the price we wanted, so it was just right and very well done. We did get ALE to handle the whole thing, the whole sale everything .... you know the legals and so on and it was no problem at all ...we always knew what was going on with selling and that's important I think and it was so good everything did go without problem..

      I can't really think of anything that could have been better in terms of the service from ALE and how they got the houses sold. We are now settled in our new home and all is good as ALE got these properties sold for us."

      they did exactly what it said on the tin
      Albert Hayden and his mother have settled into their new bungalow in Chesterfield .... having called in Ainsworth Lord Estates to get their mid terraced 3-bedroom home- one of the town police cottages in days gone by - in the Bold Venture area of Darwen well and truly sold in good time.

      Says Albert, "Ainsworth Lord Estates did exactly what it said on the tin - they sold our home in just a couple of months - and in today's climate that is good going. We reduced it a little - we took their advice on what was best -to get it sold and ALE marketed it and presented it very well and quite honestly they could not have done better.

      I lived in Darwen and I wanted to go local with a Darwen agent and a Darwen solicitor and ALE proved just excellent in everything they really did for us.

      They kept us informed, did things we wanted them to and they helped us in many ways too ..they just could not have done more than they did. We have bought our property from Your Move in Chesterfield ...and my word they have been hard work .... pity Ainsworth Lord didn't do that too ..... they could learn a bit from ALE for sure....
