About Essex & Suffolk Lettings
  • paragraph

    image cannot be displayed
    Back in 1985, Jane Whiteman founded Essex & Suffolk Lettings on the firm principles of exemplary customer service coupled with an in-depth knowledge of residential lettings.

    The formula proved to be a success and 28 years on, Essex & Suffolk Lettings has grown to be the leading property management agent in the region, with our offices serving a large geographical area.

    We are committed members of ARLA, the umbrella organisation formed to protect the interests of the public. This protection guards against fraud, misrepresentation and malpractice in the letting industry and ensures there is a positive difference between ARLA members service standards and those of other Letting and Management agents. Membership is attained only by agents who can demonstrate that they have a thorough working knowledge of the profession and are committed to conducting their business in line with current best management practice.

    Today, Jane still insists on the highest standards throughout the company and personally ensures that those founding principles are maintained as soundly as ever. It will come as no surprise then, to learn that we still retain clients who have been with us for the whole of our 28 year history and who trust our expertise to guide them whenever they make decisions concerning property.

    Our Unique Rent Guarantee
    At Essex & Suffolk Lettings we have one unique aspect to our management facility which no other agent can equal - our rent and legal guarantee. Should the tenant fail to pay the rent then Essex & Suffolk Lettings, our company, will pay it to you so you suffer no loss or interruption to your income stream.

    There's no quibbling - our commitment to pay you is automatic.

    Other agents just don't have the strength or expertise to offer such a guarantee, they use an insurance company to provide a rent and legal cover. This means that if the tenant should default, you will be faced with the time and inconvenience of having to make a claim. That in turn means there will be a delay in getting your rental income. So ask yourself the following question, especially if you are paying a mortgage on your investment property or rely on the income.

    'Which path would I prefer to take in a default situation, being forced to make an insurance claim or the no delay, no risk ,no quibble Essex & Suffolk Lettings way?'

    Furthermore, the fact that we are strong enough to offer such a unique guarantee tells you something important about the level of service you will enjoy at Essex & Suffolk Lettings. It states quite clearly that we must be getting every aspect of our property management right most of the time. Even when circumstances beyond our control puts a spanner in the works, which happens in the real world, then we must be experts at putting things right. If that were not the case then we ourselves wouldn't have the confidence to offer you such security. Think about it for a moment - all other agents are asking an insurance company to carry the risk that they might get it wrong. Contact us today - we get it right. So, if you are thinking of becoming a landlord for the first time, or indeed already have a portfolio of properties and would like advice, the best way to discuss our unique rent guarantee and to tap into our 28 years of knowledge and experience is to contact us to arrange a meeting. There really is no substitute for personal service in a market where it is so important to get it right first time.
