    Village Properties is well known in Tilehurst & Reading for our long-established and respected lettings service. The team of Ron Westbury & Nikki Gardner live locally and are very knowledgeable about property in the Reading area. With many years of experience & a friendly, helpful approach, we specialise in full property management and deal with a broad spectrum of homes in the lettings market around Reading. We offer a tailored 'no let - no fee' service with low set-up costs once a tanant is found. Our aim is to find good, reliable tenants & to provide a fully inclusive, fuss-free, 'leave everything to us' service. We also include a free Rent Guarantee insurance policy for the first year of tenancy.
    Village Properties is a member of NAEA (the National Association of Estate Agents), ARLA (the Association of Residential Letting Agents) and the Property Ombudsman for Lettings which ensures we maintain a high level of integrity & best business practice. We keep up to date with changing legislation, so landlords & tenants are fully aware of their rights and obligations. Security deposits are lodged in the approved Tenancy Deposit Schemes & we can also provide information on Rent Protection & Landlord's property insurance if required. Much of our business is by word of mouth, from returning clients & from recommendations from satisfied landlords or tenants.
    Our lettings team are on hand to efficiently deal with any property maintenance issues with a team of local, reliable, price-sensitive workmen. In addition, we are happy to work with the landlord's own preferred trades people if required.
