Griffith & Partners Lettings 
  • paragraph

    We have a strong reputation for providing landlords with a comprehensive and efficient lettings service.

    We are an independent, family owned and run business with years of experience as Residential Estate and Lettings agents.

    At Griffith & Partners we offer a choice of letting services to suit individual landlords needs and requirements. A member of our team will be able to recommend which service will be most suitable for you.

    We offer the following services:


    This service is most suitable for landlords that wish to have complete control over their property including dealing with rental payments, general day to day management and disputes regarding deposits at the end of the tenancy. Griffith & Partners will market your property, find a suitable tenant and draw up the tenancy agreements for you.


    This service is more suited to landlords that want to manage their property daily but want the security that rental payments are made on time monthly - Griffith & Partners will administer and communicate with you throughout the term of the tenancy and assist you in re-letting your property at the end of the tenancy.


    We have many long-standing clients at Griffith & Partners who use the full management service with us. Perfect for landlords that want very little involvement in the renting of their property as it offers complete peace of mind that everything is taken care of and in good hands. This service is suitable for all types of landlords from one property to a portfolio of properties.


    Please speak to a member of our team for our current competitive pricing structure - fees are not payable until your property is successfully let.

    Property Insurance

    Please speak to a member of our team about our range of insurance services to both landlords and tenants which are underwritten by an FSA approved insurance provider. These insurances serve to protect both the landlord or tenant in unforeseen circumstances during the course of a tenancy - these can range from building insurance to rent guarantee insurance - please ask us to arrange a quotation for you.

Let us find you a property
  • paragraph

    We understand that finding you the right rental property will lead to a happy tenancy and our Letting Consultants are experienced in renting and managing properties in the local area.

    What are you looking for?

    We like to get to know our tenants so that we can find you the right property - the first step is to register your details on our system by telling us what you are looking for. You can do this by registering online and requesting a call-back by us or by calling our office and discussing your requirements with a member of our Lettings team on 01491 839939.

    The majority of all our property listings are taken by tenants already registered on our system. By registering your details you can have first pick on any new property coming onto the market, so you don't miss out on finding your perfect home. We will keep you informed of any new property that becomes available by email.


    We will take up references on behalf of the Landlord. Usually this will include your employer, current or previous Landlord and a character reference. A credit check will also be undertaken. Referencing normally takes between 5 to 7 working days to complete.

    If you are claiming any form of benefit you will also need to supply details of someone who is willing to act as a Guarantor for you.


    A deposit is required on all properties prior to occupation. This is normally equal to one months' rent, but this may vary depending on the property. Please check with a member of staff who can confirm the deposit required for the property you are interested in.

    The deposit is held to cover your obligations under the Tenancy Agreement including any breakages or damage. Please Note: Your deposit cannot be used as your final months' rent.

    Rents are normally quoted on a calendar monthly basis. In addition to your deposit you will also be required to pay the first months' rent before you move in as all rents are payable in advance.

    Rents are then paid by Standing Order and are due on the date you moved in to the property.


    Once all the referencing is completed and the Landlord has accepted your application we will call you to let you know that it's all systems go! We will organise a time for you call into our office to sign the Tenancy Agreement and associated legal documents. We will also post you a draft copy of your Tenancy Agreement to read over as it contains important information you need to know before signing the your actual agreement.

    Please call us to discuss your rental requirements at Griffith & Partners at 01491 839939

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      We've been impressed from day one"
       "We've been impressed from day one by the excellent standard of professional, knowledgeable and friendly service from the team at Griffith & Partners. Our property was rented swiftly, advice was forthcoming, logistics arranged and the same experience 2 years later in finding new tenants. Living overseas it is crucial to us to be able to trust our property is well managed, and that those living in our house are happy. I have and will continue to recommend Griffith & Partners services to others. We are confident in them and therefore extremely happy." Mr & Mrs F, Landlords

      "We have been renting a property in Stadhampton for the past two years through Griffith and partners and I can highly recommend their service. The team is always friendly, professional and always available. They really take pride in their work and manage the property very well. The quick response time to maintenance issues make it only a pleasure to deal with them" Mr & Mrs DK, Tenants

      "I have been a tenant with Griffiths & Partners for over two years and found them to be friendly, reliable and professional. I would highly recommend them to any potential landlord or tenant." Ms B, Tenant 

      "I can thoroughly recommend Griffith & Partners from the point of view of being a tenant and that of a landlord which I have been both. As a tenant of theirs I have never had anything but professional treatment from any issues that have arisen, they have handled everything quickly and completely and from the point of view of the landlord they are honest and economical with their work. They seem to care about their tenants which I imagine is a rarity and my family and I have felt so secure and happy in our property we are in no hurry to move again!" "Well done Griffith & Partners!" Mrs A

      "We have worked with G&P since leaving the UK in 2003. Since that time we have developed a portfolio of properties working with G&P on acquisition and subsequent rental. We enjoy the benefits of a small and friendly team who work in a structured way and are pro-active in approaching the ongoing property maintenance. Particularly useful is the network of trusted plumbers, builders and specialists who can respond promptly with competitively priced proposals. In the main we leave all routine decisions to G&P and most of the time we find ourselves simply validating the more strategic decisions based on alternative options already researched by the team. We continue to believe this eleven year relationship is still as valid today as we had envisaged in 2003. A big well done to you all." Mr B & MrsT
