Letting Your Property
  • paragraph

    image cannot be displayed
    An exceptional and personal service for the seasoned and first time landlord               

    We offer three services, for full management, rent collection or on a let only basis, with one aim - to maximise the letting income whilst ensuring we provide a reliable and responsable tenant.

    Marketing

    All properties are advertised on Rightmove, our own website and through various other media including Twitter and the local property paper. We have excellent connections with several executive relocation companies who service relocating clients to the local area. All the staff employed at Farmer & Dyer are involved with sales and lettings and we pride ourselves with our staff continuity, which means that whilst you are away you deal with the same staff contacts throughout your leave.

    Referencing and Deposit

    We have a strict policy regarding the tenants we accept, firstly passing our own vetting procedure before instigating tenancy proceedings. A suitable tenant will be asked for an initial £350/£600 holding monies and every tenant is referenced by Homelet, an independent referencing agency, before we continue with the letting process. We hold from the tenant equivalent of one and a half months rent as a deposit which is registered under the Tenancy Deposit Scheme with 'My Deposits', a Government recommended scheme, and is held in a 'ring fenced' account with Barclays Bank PLC.

      Farmer and Dyer were knowledgeable, helpful and were really good to deal with when renting our house.

    • Landlord Testimonial

      The service we have received has been excellent
      Farmer and Dyer have managed the property for a number of years. They check the condition of the property every 3 months and provide a written report. They manage the recruitment of new tenants and carry out the security checks. They are excellent in selecting good tenants who, to date, have looked after the property and paid their rent on time. The ability to find and bring on board trustworthy tenants is the prime and top reason for using them. The F&D lettings team is efficient in handling the property management company agent on the few occasions that this has been necessary and have been persistent in chasing them to ensure the resolution of any problems raised. The F&D lettings team is also very good at communicating using email to inform us of anything pertaining to the property including monthly statements and switching to phone calls for any urgent matters such as when a broken appliance needed rapid replacement. The service we have received has been excellent and we look forward to continuing to work with the F&D team. We appreciate their friendly, helpful approach and their efficient handling of our property. Highly recommended.

    Testimonials from Tenants

    • Tenant Testimonial

      A very professional letting team
      A very professional letting team. At times they appear to be a bit reserved, but they do their job well.
    • Tenant Testimonial

      Overall a great experience
      We contacted Farmer and Dyer due to seeing the property on Indeed.co.uk They were extremely helpful and managed to arrange us a viewing in short notice. We viewed the property 3 times before we decided to put down the deposit as we had a negative experience with a previous property we rented. They were very understanding and did not rush us and answered all questions. They sent over all paperwork by email with all the details needed and explained everything along the way. Referencing was completed easily with no issues. We requested the property was painted before moving in as it is an old house which was no problem at all. Upon the move in date I met the person doing the inventory who pointed out a few things to me and where everything is such as meters and water tank etc. Since moving in I have had a few questions about the bills which they have replied very promptly which is appreciated.Overall a great experience. Spoken to a few people now including Judy, Holly and Louise. All very helpful!
    • Tenant Testimonial

      professional and friendly
      Farmer and Dyer have been professional and friendly during the whole process, since we first raised our interest in visiting the property until the moment the tenancy agreement came into force."
    • Tenant Testimonial

      Pragmatic, assured and human

    • Tenant Testimonial

      offer a more personal service
      A friendly team, quick communication and a wonderful house. Farmer and Dyer have been very helpful after we moved in and offer a more personal service than some of the larger estate agents. We had a few problems with the referencing agent, Homelet so I would recommend checking the status of applications yourself to ensure a successful process.
    • Tenant Testimonial

      helped every step of the way
      From the first viewing, Farmer & Dyer were fantastic. Holly was very friendly and knowledgeable and we were able to quickly register our interest. The contact from the company was very efficient and we were helped every step of the way. It was a very smooth service which allowed us to have moved in within two weeks of viewing the property. We would recommend Farmer & Dyer to anybody seeking to move.
    • Tenant Testimonial

      I would have no hesitation in recommending them
      In my capacity as a property finder and relocation agent I deal with estate agents on a daily basis throughout Oxfordshire and Berkshire. Farmer and Dyer are one of the most professional companies that I have dealt with , both before the tenancy, during the tenancy, and also at termination. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to prospective landlords or tenants, the whole team have been extremely helpful and professional in particular Judy King
    • Tenant Testimonial

      extremely helpful
      Louise was very helpful with all the process. As we are a Spanish family living in Spain it was not easy for us to understand the UK market and the possibilities that were offered to us. She was extremely helpful with all the process and provide a lot of information and always replied to our questions. Our relocation was easy in the end! We would definitely recommend it to other people!"

      We found Farmer and Dyer not only to be very professional but, Friendly and approachable at all times. We found they went that extra mile to ensure our move went well and guided us through sticky moments that arised, couldn't of wished for a better company to of dealt with. Very well done.

    • Tenant Testimonial

      We had a very positive rental experience
      We had not rented a property since student days so were very grateful for the professional guidance and advice we were given. The staff made the whole process straightforward and ensured we understood the terms of the contract and our legal rights. We were given time to read the paperwork and any questions we had were answered either immediately or on the same day. When they said they'd phone back, they did! As tenants, we felt well supported but were equally pleased to see them represent their landlords and their rights. They managed to represent both. We had a couple of minor problems with the house during our tenancy and these were dealt with promptly and without undue fuss. The gentleman who came to resolve the problems was pleasant and efficient. At the end of the tenancy, we were again given appropriate and timely support and our deposit returned in an efficient and speedy manner. We had a very positive rental experience and would not hesitate to recommend Farmer and Dyer."
    • Tenant Testimonial

      Good knowledge of local area
      Viewing set up quickly and efficiently. Good knowledge of local area and factors affecting rental demonstrated.Questions followed up promptly. Assisted well in negotiations. Transition into rental went smoothly. Great job!
    • Tenant Testimonial

      Everything went smoothly
      Very professional, friendly and helpful. Any questions that I had were answered quickly and with relevant information. Everything went smoothly and I appreciated the follow up call to see that we had settled in well. Overall very happy with the entire process. The only issue, which was very slight, was the issue with the garden. No one seemed to be sure about access or looking at the garden, this issue has now been resolved but it was not a problem at all really."
    • Tenant Testimonial

      only one I would ever be comfortable recommending
      As a private tenant I've had to use many different letting agents throughout the years, and Farmer and Dyer is the only one I would ever be comfortable recommending - and highly - to others. I've rented two properties from them over the past four years and they've never been anything other than friendly, courteous, professional and prompt. They've taken any and all issues I've had seriously over the years and dealt with them very quickly, going above and beyond in some cases. Broken down boilers were always dealt with immediately, I was always given plenty of advance notice for any required works or visits and check ins/outs were professional and fair. At one point Judy helped put pressure on the apartment block management company to install a new secure intercom and door entry system after some minor vandalism in the insecure common hallways, which I was hugely grateful for. When moving from my last property with them, I had originally made an offer on a different apartment with a different agent. However after hearing what I was looking for in a new place, Louise showed me an apartment which wasn't listed yet and sounded like it matched my criteria. Suffice to say it did, and I'm happily letting it now. Being able to stick with Farmer and Dyer was a genuine plus point in its favour, which again is not something I would ever have said about a lettings agent before. Check out from the old apartment was smooth, check in to the new one was equally smooth, the apartment is in great shape - there's nothing more I could've asked from them.
    • Tenant Testimonial

      Very professional team
      Took us 5 minutes to feel like home. Very well maintained, clean, quiet area and close to town centre. One bedroom house perfect for young couple.       Very professional team. Very polite and helpful. I would definitely recommend
    • Tenant Testimonial

      The communication flow was perfect
      I have been living in a flat that is managed by the same agency for 4 years. So I already had a very good relationship. The process of finding a new property went very smoothly. I received information about potential properties based on my requirements. The communication flow was perfect and all activities were executed very quickly
    • Tenant Testimonial

      they have set a standard of excellence
      The whole experience, from start to finish, has been excellent. Farmer & Dyer proved to be outstanding professionals from the initial viewing, through the whole tenancy, to the check-out. The check-in process has been smooth, the inventory swift and professional. The property was in perfect order, and truly professionally cleaned . As they were also managing the property, during the tenancy they have been extremely attentive to every need we had, dealing quickly and effectively with fixes and repairs as needed along the way. Their availability has been constant, their kindness worth mentioning, and the contractors they use are among the best we have ever seen. While their presence has been absolutely nonintrusive, they went beyond their duties as agent, providing us with various advices and support, in a very friendly way. Overall, I can't recommend them highly enough. For me they have set a standard of excellence that will be hard, if not impossible, to match

      Booking a Valuation
      In this day and age the market value of your home can fluctuate dramatically.

      Advice can vary somewhat but we take great care to value sensibly, with an open mind, as it is our top priority to maximise the market value.

      We base our appraisal on various factors including:
      • Property type, age and location
      • Comparison to competing property
        currently for sale
      • The potential to extend or improve
      • General condition and presentation

        from Land Registry
      The art is to identify the market changes early so we are able to adapt accordingly, to ensure the valuation advice that we provide is precise and realistic.

      We regularly review our initial market valuation to the eventual completed sale price on all transactions and are very proud that over the years the differential between the two figures has always remained minimal.

      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        a good buying experience
        We used Farmer & Dyer as a selling agent as we had previously bought a property through them and had a good buying experience. The flat we were selling was a shared-owenership property with restricted conditions on onward sale, so took longer to sell than a conventional property, due to the restricted market we were operating in. Even so, Farmer and Dyer gave it their full attention and concluded the sale to our satisfaction. There was one small complaint from us over one viewing, but that was dealt with appropriately, that's the only reason I can't give a full 10/10 on all counts. I would use them again, and am happy to recommend.
      • Seller Testimonial

        I would definitely use them again
        They acted in such a way as to make me feel confident I was in safe hands. Very friendly but professional responses to every phone call, they answered quickly and if necessary, reassuringly.They explained things to me in a way that never made me feel silly for asking.The photos of my property were excellent and really showed it to its full extent.I would definitely use them again
      • Seller Testimonial

        Their service and support has been outstanding
        We have had extremely good service and professional help from F&D who have continued to provide their service even though 2 buyers pulled out due to personal reasons. Their service and support has been outstanding and we would recommend them for any of our contacts in the future
      • Seller Testimonial

        would heartily recommend them 
        I was extremely pleased with the service I received from all the staff I dealt with. They were always available to arrange visits to the property when it suited me, were prompt and polite. They also liaised between me and the seller who had already moved out. I would certainly use them in the future and would heartily recommend them to family and friends
      • Seller Testimonial

        friendly and helpful
        Everyone was friendly and helpful, although I had to chase them up a few times
      • Seller Testimonial

        Thoroughly recommended
        Could not have had a better service during what can be a very stressful time selling and buying. Thoroughly recommended
      • Seller Testimonial

        I would not have dealt with any other local agent
        Having known Damian Farmer for many years I would not have entertained the idea of using any other local agent for the sale of my property. Damian had viewed and valued my property numerous times over the years and I felt he would be, by far, the best person to secure a buyer for my property.We had a number of positive viewings and at the beginning the offers started coming in.All the members of staff at F&D were friendly, helpful and courteous.I would not have dealt with any other local agent and would highly recommend F&D to anyone thinking of selling of looking to buy locally.I hope that I wont be looking to sell or purchase another property for a good number of years to come, but when the time comes I would not hesitate to return to F&D.Thank you
      • Seller Testimonial

        they have a lot of integrity
        I had lots of problems with my sale with two buyers pulling out meaning I lost out on two houses. None of this was F&Ds fault but they were very patient and supportive of my circumstances. There was a little confusion about whether I was in a contract with them or not which only came to light when I was looking to market my property with an additional agency after the second buyer dropped out but that was sorted eventually. All in all, I would say F&D are a very good agency, they have a lot of integrity and are not pushing sales for their own benefit but trying to find what's right for their customers
      • Seller Testimonial

        A very reliable service
        A very reliable service, honest and friendly.We would recommend F&D to our friends
      • Seller Testimonial

        knowledgable of the Caversham market place
        F & D are an excellent company to deal with very proficient consultants all of whom were very helpful and knowledgable of the Caversham market place.I would most definitely use them if I were to venture into the property market again.
      • Seller Testimonial

        Always cheerful
        I chose Farmer and Dyer as they already manage my mum's flat (which is rented) and are extremely helpful. Always cheerful
      • Seller Testimonial

        would happily instruct them
        I chose to instruct F & D as our sub agent in the disposal of this property as they were independent agents who I believe deliver a more honest and reliable service. I was not proved wrong and would happily instruct them to act for us again. Well done all of you
      • Seller Testimonial

        I'd certainly use them again
        I was very impressed with the service I received from farmer and dyer, from start to finish of the process. I was seen at the beginning by one of he partners, Damian Farmer, who gave a very good impression of professional competence, without being at all pushy. He gave me very useful advice regarding getting the house ready for sale, expected price, and his predictions of timescales and the market were spot on. All the staff I spoke to we're extremely friendly, professional and the team was mobilised quickly and efficiently - I started getting viewings practically from day 1, and got 2 offers within 2-3 weeks, at an acceptable price. Again, the staff were always polite, helped me understand the selling process and were useful during the sold period in dialogue with my solicitor and the buyer.I'd certainly use them again, and would highly recommend the firm.
      • Seller Testimonial

        definitely recommend F&D to friends and family
        We have been very happy with the service provided by F&D. We dealt with a few different members of staff and found everybody we spoke to helpful, knowledgeable and in general a pleasure to work with.There was a delay further down in the chain and as well as our solicitors, F&D were also on the case every day, chasing the progress of the chain. They did this without being prompted to do so and kept us informed whenever there was a change in situation.We would definitely recommend F&D to friends and family and would have no hesitation in using them in the future.

      • Seller Testimonial

        professional and good value
        Having worked with Farmer & Dyer on previous moves and always experienced a high level of honest professional and friendly advice (something not always afforded by other estate agents) we had no hesitation to make use of their service again.All in all a very good bunch of people to deal with, professional and good value - very pleased
      • Seller Testimonial

        open and honest
        Very pleased with the professional approach of the firm. Staff were refreshingly open and honest and I felt that they were trying to do the best for all parties rather than having any hidden agendas.Would highly recommend to others
      • Seller Testimonial

        helpful and reassuring...Would recommend this team
        This was our first experience of house selling for 42 years and seemed a daunting prospect but each member of the team at Farmer & Dyer were always helpful and reassuring. All that was done was with courtesy and confidently.Would recommend this team
      • Seller Testimonial

         our first choice
        Happy with the service given they gave us a realistic valuation of the property not used them before would be our first choice the next time we have to sell property
      • Seller Testimonial

        F&D were by far the best agents
        F&D were by far the best agents in the chain and had it not been for their client management skills in retaining a degree of calm and reality in what is always a stressful situation this sale may not of happened. I would have no hesitation in recommending F&D to anyone that is looking to sell their house. A rare creed in an industry that is often driven only by targets and sales with very little client care in the more difficult elements of the process - Well Done!
      • Seller Testimonial

        acted professionally and knowledgeably
        This is the sale of my second house with Farmer & Dyer in the last 3 years. During both sales F&D have acted professionally and knowledgeably throughout. I am a Chartered Surveyor by profession and so am an informed client and have been very impressed with their service on both sales."
      • Seller Testimonial

        Went above and beyond
        Amazing service. Went above and beyond and exceeded high expectations. Highly recommended. Already used Farmer & Dyer for 3 transactions and I will use them again
      • Seller Testimonial

        always available and gave guidance and advice
        The service we received was absolutely outstanding. Highly professional and knowledgeable at all times, they were always available and gave guidance and advice whilst also listening to our thoughts and views. They targeted the sale of the property exactly right and secured a significant level of interest immediately at a higher price. Their skills were invaluable in saving the sale process during a short term, sticky period otherwise it would have been the smoothest and most seamless house sale I have ever been involved in. I cannot recommend Farmer and Dyer highly enough and George deserves the highest accolades for his efforts."
      • Seller Testimonial

        All round good experience
        Excellent service. realistic market pricing of property and great knowledge of the market. Got the house sold in timely period and managed the sale through to completion. All round good experience.
      • Seller Testimonial

        fantastic
        All at Farmer & Dyer - they are fantastic. Well done and Thank you
      • Seller Testimonial

        The house sold for more than we ever hoped for
        Farmer & Dyer were great. They were professional at all times and were extremely good at keeping us updated. The sale was because of a death and they were sensitive to our circumstances without being over-familiar or dramatic - it was a perfect balance between being respectful, appropriate and friendly. The house sold for more than we ever hoped for and their suggestion of going to closed bids was absolutely the right thing to do. This guidance was invaluable. We were lucky in that we had no protracted negotiations or discussions in an attempt to reduce the price at any stage and we think this was largely down to Farmer & Dyer managing the sale so well. All in all, we were delighted with the whole process from start to finish. It was a sad time to let go of our loving childhood home which held such fantastic memories for us, but Farmer & Dyer made it as easy as possible. We felt they genuinely cared about us and they knew we wanted it to go to a family who would appreciate it and love it as much as we did. They achieved this for us which was a perfect result.
      • Seller Testimonial

        I got lots of feedback from them
        Very helpful and understanding of my situation. Very good communication particularly with Max and George who were polite, helpful and professional. It was easy to ask them to value the house, easy to arrange to get it on the market and I got lots of feedback from them from the people that viewed the property. Even during a slight hiccup in preceedings with the buyers they remained positive and helpful. I'd recommend them to anyone wishing to sell
      • Seller Testimonial

        They are head and shoulders above the competition
        We have used Farmer & Dyer before because of their professionalism and friendliness. Their staff are clearly well trained and knowledgeable, unlike others we have dealt with. They are head and shoulders above the competition in Caversham in Reading."
      • Seller Testimonial

        undoubtedly one of the best Agents in Caversham
        Farmer & Dyer are undoubtedly one of the best Estate Agents in Caversham. They give sensible advice about marketing property and do not over inflate the price, to get the business and then fail to deliver, but equally the price guide is accurate for the market conditions. They dealt with our sale and purchase professionally. Also they listened to us with regard the type of property we were looking for and did not send lots of emails with unsuitable property. Although property buying and selling is stressful, they did their best to make it an easier experience."
      • Seller Testimonial

        They kept us fully informed at all times
        We have been very happy with the service received from start to finish. The partners and staff were all very knowledgeable, professional and approachable. They kept us fully informed at all times. I would not hesitate to recommend them."
      • Seller Testimonial

        everyone knows the latest updates
        Farmer & Dyer were by far the most pleasant estate agents I came across during our property transaction. Always professional, friendly and happy to help and a small team so everyone knows the latest updates - with other agents, we felt we had to explain ourselves over and over again as we got passed to different people each time we called. I also liked the fact they weren't pushy and only got interested parties out for a viewing rather than getting as many as possible just to make the numbers look good. We particularly recommend George and Max who helped us so much and always had time to help however busy they were.Struggled to find areas for improvement but perhaps the aftercare once the property was sold, to get the transaction pushed through
      • Seller Testimonial

        F&D are clearly very aware of the local market
        Overall we were very happy with the marketing of the property. F&D are clearly very aware of the local market dynamics and were able to advise us accordingly. All contacts were handled professionally and calls / communications answered quickly and comprehensively.
      • Seller Testimonial

        I thought they were brilliant
        I thought they were brilliant especially Justin who i spoke to on a near daily basis when we were trying to exchange. He was giving me more information than anyone and was really understanding and helpful when i was getting angry and frustrated by the appeared hold up by my buyers solicitor. I could not praise Justin enough.I would recommend Farmer and Dyer to anyone especially because of Justin, Megan and Victoria
      • Seller Testimonial

        very professional and helpful
        I used Farmer & Dyer to sell an elderly relatives property in Reading. I was based in Scotland and found them to be very professional and helpful in all aspects of selling the property all the way through to conclusion. I have no hesitation in recommending Farmer & Dyer.
      • Seller Testimonial

        I picked the right agents to sell my house
        I picked the right agents to sell my house- They got a good price for the property and did everything possible to make the sale go through without any problems."
      • Seller Testimonial

        did more than was expected
        Excellent from beginning to end. Actually did more than was expected.
      • Seller Testimonial

        extremely helpful
        Farmer and Dyer were acting for my purchaser, although they did provide me a quote for selling the apartment which was although competitive amidst the high street agents, I ultimately chose an internet agent. They were extremely helpful in providing chain information and communicating with various parties in a complex chain as we were selling 2 properties and buying one. Ultimately though, I do not feel that local agents can continue to justify their fees compared with the fixed prices offered by internet agents and internet selling market places."
      • Seller Testimonial

        Their sales strategy was perfect
        There was an immediate sense of professionality and a real sense of history and true local knowledge from my first contact with Farmer and Dyer. Their previous years of success in marketing and sales of property in the area the property I was selling in, was evident and gave a distinct advantage. This was linked with a friendliness and willingness and openness to listen and a desire to give the best advice and support at all times. There was always a sense of having time and concern shown to any questions or worries and the sound advice I was given re: final bids and offers enabled me to gain the maximum price for the property which was of great satisfaction. Their sales strategy was perfect for my situation and my needs were understood perfectly re: requirements for time frame I had to respect and best price for sale of the property I hoped to find. Promptness over replies to my calls and message was always given highest importance and I was always kept in the picture at all stages of the process of what was happening or should be happening. Overall it was a thoroughly satisfactory and positive experience to give Farmer and Dyer the responsibility of selling the property and I remained happy and supported by their work and attitude at all times. I would not hesitate to recommend the firm to handle and represent any seller who needs their property to be marketed and sold in a professional and friendly manner. Their combination of great experience and attitude were very impressive. All of the staff showed the utmost in professional conduct and as well as the experience of both partners the work of Max and George was always full of enthusiasm and commitment .I would be very happy to engage them again the in future if I was to be interested in a property in the area.

        honest, courteous and knowledgeable estate agents.
        Although I was only purchasing through Farmer and Dyer, they were life savers for both the buying and selling process and so much more proactive and available than the on line agents I was using to sell. I would not hesitate to use them if/when I sell again. They always answered queries immediately, kept me informed of what was going on in a very long and protracted chain ( remaining cheerful and encouraging whilst doing so) and we're always happy to arrange viewings of the property as requested. From initial viewing to completion/ handover, I felt confident and secure in my dealings with Farmer and Dyer and was extemely grateful to be dealing with such an honest, courteous and knowledgeable estate agents.

I couldn't recommend them more highly and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to friends and family in the future.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        very positive
        Max was incredibly enthusiastic and friendly, without ever coming across as anything other than genuine (this can't be said of all Estate Agents) He always responded to emails and calls quickly. While he highlighted deadlines he was never pushy and was patient and keen to help with any queries that arose. He is also very knowledgeable about the local area and well placed to offer advice. I had more contact with George later on in the process and he too was very helpful.

        One stop shopping at it's best
        One stop shopping at it's best. Farmer & Dyer have helped to ensure a smooth transition from looking to owning offering excellent opinion and advice. Their suggestions for solicitor and broker have ensured a very targeted service dovetailing to our exact needs. As our circumstances have changed their team have supported us all the way. These guys really know their region and how to compete within their own market. No hard sell just rock solid support and reasoned proposals. Everyone cares, no matter what their job description or status. So far so good and we are happy to embark with Farmer & Dyers letting services. We are entrusting them to look after the property letting us focus on work etc.
