    How we at Harris & Birt look after tenants
    We do our best to adhere to the following below; 

    • We pride ourselves on ensuring that properties are of a good standard for tenants and we will advise landlords of any work which needs to be undertaken prior to renting. We will refuse to market a rental property which is not up to standard for tenants.
    • We aim to keep tenants safe by checking that any furnishings or white goods in a rental property meet current health and safety standards.
    • Further safety issues include ensuring that relevant gas and electrical safety checks are carried out and certificates are issued.
    • We will compile a comprehensive inventory with detailed photographs. This helps to protect both our tenants and landlords from end of tenancy disputes.
    • We will draw up a legally binding tenancy agreement to protect both landlord and tenant.
    • We will safeguard a tenant's deposit by ensuring these are protected in a government-backed tenancy deposit protection scheme DPS. An assessment of the property will be undertaken at the end of the tenancy and a fair decision will be made regarding the return of the deposit.
    • Property maintenance is a big issue with tenants, and we will ensure any problems are dealt with quickly and efficiently. 
    • If we manage the property we will retain a sets of keys for the property and deal with any emergencies should a tenant be unable to access the property.
    • If we manage the property we will complete regular, quarterly inspections every three months of the property and report any tenant concerns back to the landlord.
    • We will explain the concept of fair wear and tear and advise tenants and landlords of any issues that need to be dealt with during or at the end of a tenancy.
    • As a tenant you will be able to visit or telephone our office during office hours; we will also provide an emergency out-of-hours service to you, the tenant.
    • We have a range of expert local tradesmen who can deal with maintenance issues promptly and efficiently on behalf of the landlord.
    • We will ensure that landlords remain legally compliant to protect our tenants.
    • We will complete the end of tenancy inspections and check out and provide tenants and landlords with a detailed written report if required.

        Real partnership in selling our home. 
        "Huge sense of relief when we found Harris and Birt.. From start to finish we felt that David Birt just 'got' our property. He recognised we had put a great deal of love and attention into the property and it would appeal to a buyer looking for something apart from the norm. He gave us confidence to reflect this in the asking price and within the first viewings, secured a purchaser. Highly recommend. Susan"

        Great service
        "We sold with the firm in October 2018. Having quite a unique property we worried it would take a while to sell. David Lakin and the team ensured we were marketed in every possible way and kept in touch regularly to keep us in the loop. We really felt that they went above and beyond to ensure our property sold swiftly to enable us to settle and apply for school places for our daughter in plenty of time. They were always happy to answer any queries we had and dealt professionally with us as through sale negotiations and beyond- even offering sound advice on the property we went on to buy, despite it not being marketed with them. We would highly recommend".
      • Seller Testimonial

        Went the extra 10 miles!
        "We had already tried two estate agents for the sale of our house without success before coming to Harris and Birt on the recommendation of a friend. Within a few days we were seeing a steady flow of interest from potential buyers who had realistic expectations and were genuinely interested in the property. We were delighted to finally agree the sale, The chain involved was extremely long, and as we approached the exchange date, a link in the chain unraveled which could have been disastrous. At this point David Lakin really made the difference by taking ownership and communicating with literally everyone involved to pull it all together.. Many, many thanks to him for his commitment to getting the result we wanted. Thank you to David Birt, whose local knowledge and customer care are just exceptional. The whole team really were friendly and knowledgeable and pulled together for us. Many thanks to you all."

        We found Harris & Birt very proactive
        The combination of the younger directors of the firm with the professionalism and experience of David Birt is viewed by ourselves as a winning formula. The new combination has in our view introduced improved marketing but maintained good old fashioned personalisation. We have no hesitation in recommending Harris and Birt to the vale of Glamorgan community. Peter and Tricia Emery.

        Thank you for your endless chasing
        Hi both, I just wanted to say thank you for getting us to the end of this very long (and rather traumatic at times) house sale! Meant in the nicest possible way...I am looking forward to not having to speak to you again!! but I bet you are as relieved as I am! At some point I will look to buy again but I'm going to wait to see what Brexit does to the market and I need a while to recover from all this to be honest! Thank you for your endless chasing and updating. All the best and many thanks, Olivia

        Stirling efforts in the sale of my properties
        Although I have verbally thanked you for the Stirling efforts you have made in the sale of my properties in Llantwit Major, I think it is only right that I put it on record that your company and, more particularly, you have greatly exceed what can reasonably be expected from even the most respected Estate Agents.

        House purchase
        "A very professional service and warm and genial estate agents . There was quite a delay in buying our house because of the vendors and would have liked more frank conversations about timescales and issues holding up the sale. Other than that, we had a good experience buying through Harris and Birt and would go through them again. "
