    LETTINGS

    We have a dedicated and expert team dealing with the management of residential property, finding suitable tenants and maximizing rental income. Our database of potential tenants is constantly updated to ensure speedy and successful lettings.

    We also prepare a tenancy agreement on your behalf and explain to the tenant their obligations under that agreement. We will manage the property on your behalf and will deal with the inevitable problems that arise, as well as collecting the monthly rent. We can also organise the annual safety checks for gas appliances, and periodic safety checks of electrical appliances.

    On letting a property we prepare an inventory of all contents and their condition. We also keep a record of the internal decoration, so that if there is any damage during the period of the tenancy we have appropriate records available to pursue the matter on your behalf.

    Finding a tenant and then letting and managing a property can be stressful and time-consuming. Our aim is to take the strain out of the whole letting process and allow our customers get on with their lives. We will keep you informed about the progress of the letting and any issues that may arise, but essentially we will provide the solutions to any problems that may arise.

    Land & New Homes

    For Landowners, we specialise in the sale of land for residential development from single plots to sites to large strategic developments. Working with some of the best specialists in the area we can advise on maximising the value of your land through the planning process. We can also advise on the best method of sale.

We understand the issues, to negotiate the best deal for you and will work closely with your legal advisors to ensure an effective and workable contract.

    For Developers we offer a range of services from market research to advice on detailed specification. We aim to add value by ensuring that proposed schemes realise their full real market appeal, thereby optimising revenue and saleability as well as minimising potential risk. We have been selling new houses and new developments for over 50 years, we understand the commercial imperatives that developers face and the aspirations of home owners. Where appropriate we can deal with all aspects of marketing from the initial marketing strategy, through to the preparation of sales material to managing site sales staff. Whether landowner or developer our experience can help maximise your investment.

    We would highly recommend R M English
    "We recently sold our old house and bought our new home, both through R M English, and we were so pleased that we chose them above other estate agents. We were very impressed with their efficiency and their attention to detail. They always acted in a professional yet friendly manner. We could not fault them in any way. We would highly recommend R M English to anyone wishing to sell their home."
