    What our clients say about Allan & Bath

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      "When we first decided to rent out our property we met with Tony Wilson at the Poole branch of Allan & Bath to discuss our options Tony was very helpful and professional but also extremely approachable. Once we had let our property with them we still felt that we could contact Tony and his office at any time if needed. Having a letting agent made the experience of letting a property much easier and gave us peace of mind that any problems were sorted by Allan & Bath."
    • Landlord Testimonial

      "Allen & Bath at the Bournemouth office have been looking after my residential properties for nearly 20 years now I am completely satisfied with the way they manage the properties. They are both fair to me and to my tenants and where there has been a problem they have acted fast and sorted the problem. I have found they are able to re-let a property quickly, to give me quality tenants with good references, who tend to be long turn. I always receive a prompt return of calls and emails and get regular updates throughout the entire process. I feel that I am being looked after properly. Their accounting systems are first class and I receive all the rents regularly as they are paid to them, where there is a problem they manage it on my behalf. The check outs are fair and they return deposits quickly.

      I have no hesitation in recommending Allen & Bath to friends and family, people who are looking for accommodation, and would have no trouble recommending them as an agent to other landlords."
    • Landlord Testimonial

      "The Allan and Bath staff at the Ferndown Branch have been very helpful and timely. They have been keen to assist us as Landlords in securing the ongoing tenancy of the property and; given our residence offshore, the timely return of electronic communications has been greatly appreciated. We rely heavily on their expertise in the full management of our property and overall we are very satisfied with our relationship and would recommend them."
    • Landlord Testimonial

      "I would like to record how pleased I have been with the extremely friendly and highly professional service I received from Allan and Bath who handled the Letting of my property. I would have no hesitation or reservations at all in recommending them to anyone who is searching for an agent to act for them."
    • Landlord Testimonial

      "On the whole I was very happy with the Lettings Team at Poole. The referencing went through quickly and the whole process went smoothly. There were delays with bringing the property up to scratch but to be fair that was down to the landlord taking his time. David and his team also allowed me to return to the property to "measure up" and check out bits that I had forgotten initially, before we signed the tenancy. The completion / hand over day went smoothly despite every new tenants nightmare of their debit card being initially declined for the deposit and rent in advance. Now I\'m in the property, the management of it has transferred to the Bournemouth office which is not included in this review. I guess the proof of the pudding with any agent is when you leave the prop and how quickly deposits and disagreements are settled. Time will tell but so far so good."
