    image cannot be displayed

    Lines & James is an established letting agent that manages over 400 properties, all within Horsham and the surrounding areas.

    The company has an excellent reputation for the level of service and care shown to our landlords and tenants. Our ethos is and always has been one of first-rate service. The business is built, not on maximum short-term profit, but on an excellent reputation which has proven its value many times over as both previous landlords & tenants return to us as their circumstances change. Most of our properties have been appointed to us due to recommendations from previous & existing clients.

    Residing in a beautiful grade II listed building on Worthing Road just as you enter the centre of Horsham, the office is always a hive of activity. It is kept under control by Lines & James' fantastic staff that take customer service to the next level by going far further than the clichéd 'extra mile'.

    The Lines & James principal is "Good properties deserve good tenants & vice versa". To us this means that we aim to market good quality properties of all sizes and similarly we endeavor to rent to tenants who are going to look after them well. We advise landlords the best way to present their properties to maximize the rental potential, together with a first class inventories thus minimalizes potential problems at the end of a tenancy. This is why our strap-line at Lines & James is 'Managing Properties ... Finding Homes...'

Over 450 landlords can't be wrong!

    Why we're different
    We like to keep it simple at Lines & James, no gimmicks and one package; our Best Package. If you join us as a landlord, you can expect all of the following, as standard.  
    • Upgraded listings on RightMove - The importance of the UK's number 1 property portal cannot be underestimated. We go to extra effort to make sure that your property is clicked on by as many potential tenants as possible. As an extra bonus we offer upgraded listings for our landlords so that your property can be either a Premium Listing or a Featured Property. This means that you will find your property at the top, or as a larger listing within public search results.

    • Floorplans - We have just invested in new software so that we are now able to provide floorplans for potential tenants whilst they look at your house on the internet. According to a recent survey by RightMove, floorplans can make tenants 30% more likely to make an inquiry into a property.

    • No Extra Fees on Contractors Invoices - If something goes wrong with your rental property, the contractors bills can be expensive enough without your letting agent taking a commission on top. We don't believe in this practice and therefore £100 of plumbing works on your house costs you the landlord, £100.
