    image cannot be displayed
    There's a balance between asking the highest rent and having a property vacant, achieving zero rent. Our aim is to achieve the best rent with the least void periods. Most of our properties are let within 2 weeks. If you choose our full management service, we'll guarantee that if we don't find your next tenant in 30 days we won't charge you a tenant set up fee.

    Free Rent guarantee warranty...

    We're so confident in finding you the best tenants that we underwrite the tenants rent free of charge for the first six months as well as any legal costs for eviction. At the end of the six months you have the option to extend this.

    I look after the day to day admin in the lettings department, from drafting tenancy agreements to paying rents over to landlords. I like to think of myself as "efficiency personified".

      Thumbs Up
      Copes has been trustworthy and extremely helpful. They go above and beyond for their clients and always give exceptional customer service. I have found that any request I make is always completed with a smile and a "can do" attitude. Copes have been around a long time and with that comes security in the knowledge they know what they are doing.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      image cannot be displayed
      Excellent Customer Focussed service...
      I have used them to find tenants as a landlord. Very professional and honest service. They are able to facilitate the whole process. You get what you pay for so don't cut corners as saving a few hundred pounds getting a tenant could cost you thousands later if they are not properly vetted etc.. I highly recommend them. I have since also sold my property through Copes and again an excellent professional service
    • Landlord Testimonial

      image cannot be displayed
      Effective, efficient, professional, perfect...
      For eight years Copes managed the letting of my flat. They were unfailingly professional and throughout the whole period of time my flat was not empty for a single day. Tenants were quickly found, vetted and moved in. Repairs, replacements... you name it and Copes took care of it for me. I wholeheartedly recommend Copes to anyone who wants to let their property through a reliable, effective agent.

    Buying a home...
    • paragraph

      Where do I start?
      We can all dream.... and its great to look at what's available on Rightmove but what can you afford to buy?
      The starting point has to be to find out how much you can borrow.... but who do you go to? High street bank, building society or broker.
      If you want choice and the best mortgage to suit you then it has to be a broker, but be careful as some brokers only have access to a handful of lenders.
      That's why we have teamed up with Zing.

      We came across Zing through one of our clients and were so impressed with the way in which they cared for the client that we had to spread the word....

      As independent mortgage advisers, Zing have access to a comprehensive range of lenders but go beyond just the mortgage advice, offering you, the customer the reassurance of having someone by your side every step of the way... it's no wonder that they won the 2016 European business of the year award.

      Paul Flavin, owner of Zing Mortgages is very much like David Cope, focusing on offering the very best for his clients. His team are with him 100% of the way and will guide you through the whole process, always treating you as an individual. They'll get to know you and your circumstances before recommending one of the thousands of mortgage deals they have access to, many of which aren't available from high street providers.

      Throughout the process they'll take care of every facet of your application, keeping you constantly informed with regular updates as well as being at the end of the telephone line to answer any additional questions you may have along the way.

      And the Zing service doesn't end when your mortgage completes.....

      To find out more call 01375 311028 for some of that ZING service

      Zing Mortgages is a trading name of Miura Financial Solutions Ltd who are authorised & regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Miura Financial Solutions Ltd are an appointed representative of HL Partnership who are also authorised & regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

        I'd definitely recommend them ...
        "They gave me all the relevant information I needed and I really felt they knew what they were talking. They weren't pushy and I felt confident with their knowledge. On the first weekend we had loads of viewings and sold within a week of going on the market. Luckily everything went through very smoothly but they were there when I needed them and had all the up to date info throughout the process. I'd definitely recommend them and definitely use them again." Tracey Brown, Chafford Hundred

        Why wouldn't you sell with Copes?...
        "My wife and I used Copes when we bought our flat that we have since sold through them. Everything that they have done, or for which they have been responsible has been done promptly and efficiently, with friendliness and charm. Outside core requirements they helped me personally with a problem that was not their responsibility, with the same commitment and efficiency as everything else. I would recommend them to others, why on earth would you go anywhere else?" Brian, Grays
