    In partnership with Let Alliance, we also offer a tenant eviction service which includes the cost of all legal expenses. Price on application.
  • paragraph

    Energy Performance Certificates
    All landlords are required to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) produced for each property they market and let out. This report is carried out by a Domestic Energy Assessor and involves investigating the construction of the property, heating systems and insulation and energy-saving aspects of the property. The property is then given a rating, along with any suitable recommendations which may affect the energy rating in the future. Once complete, the EPC is valid for ten years. From April 2018 it is illegal to let a property is the EPC does not meet a minimum rating of E.

    Martin Holden and Will Prescott are qualified as Domestic Energy Assessors an can carry out these reports at your convenience. The cost of this service is £65 plus VAT.
  • paragraph

    Deposits
    Since the 6th April 2007, all Landlords and Letting agents collecting deposits must safeguard them with a Government Authorised Scheme. Holden and Prescott is a member of the The Deposit Protection Service and as such can meet your legal obligations when collecting any deposit. This is your protection against loss or damage to the property during the Tenancy which is deemed more than 'wear and tear'. If the deposit is not registered with one of the 3 government backed schemes The tenant can raise an action against the landlord and ask the court to award the tenant between one and three times the value of the deposit. Non-compliance with deposit protection can also affect the landlord's ability to end a tenancy using a Section 21 notice

    Applicant Guide

    How do I apply for the property I've just viewed?

    Holding Deposit £100 refundable holding deposit.
    • The landlord has 15 days to make a decision once a holding deposit is taken.
    • If the tenancy does not go ahead then the money must be repaid in full within 7 days of the deadline being reached or the landlord backing out.
    • Repayment does not need to be in full if the tenant backs out of the tenancy agreement themselves, fails right to rent checks, has provided false or misleading information, or where the landlord tries their best to get the information needed but the tenant fails to provide it within the 15 days.
    • If the tenancy does go ahead, the holding deposit must be returned within 7 days of agreement, unless it is converted into part payment of the actual deposit or used towards the initial rent payment.

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      David Alderson *****

      Holden and Prescott have managed a rental property for us for over 18 months and achieved a subsequent sale of said property at close to the asking price. Throughout this period all the team in this business which is owned and run by the partners in the office have been excellent and a pleasure to do business with. Their experience in rental properties proved invaluable to us. Their advice regarding the valuation was accurate and fair and achieved a sale from the first viewing once we decided to sell. We cannot recommend them more highly. If we ever need an estate agent's service in the future we would go nowhere else
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Gilly O'Neil *****

      The only estate agent in Macclesfield I will use for my lettings. Very quick to act on instructions from either myself or my tenants. Staff go the extra mile to ensure smooth running of tenancies and always deal with any issues in a professional and speedy manner.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Alison Newsome *****

      We used Holden and Prescott for both letting management and for the house sale everything was handled very professionally and in a timely manner I would definitely recommend them.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Ian Pollock *****

      H&P couldn't have been more helpful during the negotiations and sale of a property to the existing tenant. They found me the tenant, they found me the buyer. What could easily become a very stressful situation for me was dealt with patience, good humour and sound advice resulting in a successful outcome.

      Holden and Prescott Estate Agents are a progressive firm of estate agents providing selling and letting services in Macclesfield and the surrounding villages. Since the Millennium we have consistently sold more houses than every other agent in the area and now have the fastest-growing letting department in Macclesfield too.

      This unrivalled success is down to two essential factors: dynamic, proactive marketing and a genuine desire to provide the ultimate service, whether a buyer, seller or landlord.

      The company was founded in 1998 by Martin Holden, a long-term resident of Macclesfield and Will Prescott who has worked in the town since 1990. They have since been joined by Ben Mason as equal partner and have built up a successful team of dedicated individuals, most of whom have been with the company since its very early days. As an 'owner-run' firm, the partners have retained a hands-on approach to the business and over the full seven days there is always at least one partner in the branch.

      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        John W *****

        Buying or Selling, the "perfect property process" remains to be invented. The latest approaches appear to empower you, but do they assist or are they just more rope to ensnare you? How will *you* understand the property beat, the local market, the mood, the tempo, the "word on the street?" When we Brits look to quality, it's still Rolls Royce, Savile Row, Fortnum and Mason and of course Macclesfield's one and only Holden and Prescott. Whether it's support and strategy, insight and inspiration or help and humour - you just need one number - Holden and Prescott - transcending any known perfection - they're your #1 and only selection, your awesome allies to property success. Highly recommend by a long term customer. JW.
      • Seller Testimonial

        Paul Adams *****

        Sold our property in Macclesfield through HOLDEN and PRESCOTT - they are an amazing team of professionals who really changed my perception of estate agents. They were very knowledgeable and incredibly helpful and supportive throughout the process and provided much invaluable advice and emotional support when our ongoing purchase hit some rocky moments. Ben, Fiona and Will really are at the top of their game and a delight to deal with. If you are selling a property in Macclesfield - don't even think about using anyone else!

      • Buyer Testimonial

        Kim Middleton *****

        I recently bought my first house, which was through Holden and Prescott. I mainly dealt with Fiona who was absolutely brilliant. There were a few issues that cropped up along the way, and the vendor was keen to rush it through in 6 weeks, but Fiona was incredibly helpful, nothing was too much trouble. If I was to sell my house in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to use them. Thank you!
