    WE ARE VERY PROUD TO BE AN INDEPENDENT ESTATE AGENCY WITH A REPUTATION FOR INTEGRITY, EFFICIENCY AND TRANSPARENCY.

    And because we know how busy you are, we are now open on Sundays too (10am-3pm)!

    Gareth James is a family owned business that has been active in the South East London property market since 1994. Our aim is to provide the best service in the industry.

    Unlike many large chain organisations that move their Sales and Lettings negotiators from branch to branch you will find that in all of our offices, there is a bedrock of local expertise and experience. This is not only crucial in maintaining the best prices and the understanding of values, but also in terms of introducing local facilities, amenities and contacts to prospective buyers and tenants.

    Our Sales and Lettings negotiators can sell or let out any of the properties that any of our branches take on, meaning the whole department is working on your property unlike a lot of estate agencies. Our highly trained property experts have a broad skill base, which enables us to provide the relevant professional support at every stage of each transaction.

    For your peace of mind we are also members of the Property Ombudsman Scheme and we subscribe to the Code of Practice ensuring the highest level of customer service. Our services include Sales and Lettings, as well as Property Management, Residential Developments and Professional Valuations.

LANDLORDS

    LANDLORDS CONSIDERING LETTING THEIR PROPERTY CAN RELY ON OUR EXPERIENCE, KNOWLEDGE AND PROFESSIONALISM.
  • paragraph

    Our established local reputation ensures that we have access to a steady stream of high calibre corporate tenants and private individuals in the UK and from overseas. We strive to ensure that we identify the most suitable tenant for your property at the best possible rent. Recent demographic shifts in the housing market have resulted in an unprecedented demand for rental accommodation. As a consequence, there is a continuous and consistent demand for rented accommodation in all price ranges which is reflected not only in the rents achieved but also the lack of void period between tenancies.
  • paragraph

    LETTING SERVICE
    The services we offer are as follows:
    Upon receiving your instructions to proceed, we will strive to find you a suitable tenant in the shortest possible time and at the highest rent achievable in the open market. Our contacts with numerous multi-national companies ensure a consistent demand and where necessary, prospective tenants will be accompanied to your property by a member of staff.

    Once a suitable tenant has been identified, we will obtain the appropriate financial and character references and submit them to a third party referencing provider and then to you for your approval.

    We will prepare the correct form of Tenancy Agreement and arrange for it to be signed by Landlord and Tenant. Alternatively, you may instruct your own solicitors to prepare the Agreement if you so wish.

    Prior to the commencement of the tenancy, we can arrange for the preparation of a comprehensive Inventory of Contents and Schedule of Condition which is subsequently checked in the presence of the tenant prior to their occupation. They sign the document as evidence of the contents and condition of the property at the time of their occupancy. On the day of their departure, the same document is checked again in their presence and a Schedule of Dilapidations is prepared (less of course the usual fair wear and tear).

    At the commencement of the tenancy a security deposit, usually equivalent to six weeks rent, is collected from the tenant. This is subsequently held and protected with the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS).

    We will arrange for the rent to be paid by the tenant to our accounts department in the first instance and we will then transfer the funds to you to your bank or building society on a calendar monthly basis.

    We will arrange for meter readings to be taken by the Inventory Clerk at both the commencement and termination of the tenancy and will advise the utility companies of change of occupancy.

    FULL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

    This service is designed for those Landlords who  want a hansd ff approach to property letting. Whether that may be because you are living abroad or who wish to be relieved of the burden of managing their your own property.

We obtain quotes, oversee and manage any repairs for any work that may becomes necessary. Gareth James only instructs reputable, insured and qualified plumbers, electricians and general maintenance operatives with a history of completing repairs efficiently and on time at a competitive cost.

    On your behalf, we can arrange to settle invoices that remain your responsibility such as ground rent, service charges, maintenance contracts, insurance premiums, etc. The payment of water rates and council tax is the responsibility of the tenant during their period of occupancy.
     
    We will collect rent at calendar monthly intervals, during the tenancy and credit the net proceeds directly to you or to your bank with a copy statement forwarded to you.

      A brilliant and efficient service - so helpful... Wish I had found these letting agents before as they really set the standard for Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      These guys  found our tenants in one day
      "Very impressive!"

      They handled everything well, the only reason to drop one star is the processes were sometimes complicated by dealing with several people at once. Otherwise full marks for professional and friendly service. I will use them again.
