    Levels of service

    We understand the pressure points on landlords which means we're expertly placed to find the ideal property to rent or tenants to fill it, so you can achieve the best possible rental return. However, securing a let in the quickest possible time isn't always our objective. The tenant has to be right, which is why we conduct thorough checks to make sure your property will be loved and that your rental income will be paid reliably.

    At every stage, you'll benefit from our buy-to-let expertise and advice, so you are fully up to speed with the latest tax and health & safety regulations.

    We offer three levels of management service for landlords to suit your individual requirements and tenancy terms:

    1. Introduction Only Service: which covers the fundamental steps to getting a tenant to rent your property, from a rental valuation and marketing, to accompanied viewings and references
    2. Rent Collect Service: which includes the above and in addition rental collection, monthly statements, dealing with insurance claims, contacting utilities and renewals to name a few.
    3. Fully Managed Service: a comprehensive service including mid-term property checks, dealing with any tenant enquiries, repairs and legal advice. See a full list of the items included within each management package.

    Pat Barton | Managing Director
    In January 2018, Ashley and Derek handed over the reins to joint Managing Directors Pat Barton and Matt Jacobs, who have both enjoyed a long history with the company. Pat started his career with Jacobs Steel over 23 years ago, working his way up to a senior management position before leaving to gain experience in the corporate world. Pat has an active involvement with our Lettings team and is often based from the Lettings office.

    • Landlord Testimonial

      Got me £200 more a month than their competitors
      Ollie and the team did a great job renting out my flat. As a first time landlord, I had no clue but they have been really helpful and talked me through everything needed. Also they managed to get me £200 more a month then their competitors proposed. Massive thanks. - Charlie C | May 2019
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Always willing to help
      I used to let my flat personally but was having some issues and therefore contacted Ollie. He did not just help me to sort out the issue but is now helping me to manage two of my properties. He always responses to the queries promptly and always willing to help no matter how many times you contact him. I definitely recommend him and the team for excellent and the efficient service I had. - Nirjhar Shrestha | April 2019
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Excellent service at a very stressful time
      I've been very impressed with Ollie and his team. I live overseas and needed to let my Dad's flat as he has just gone into a care home. Ollie has provided excellent service at a very stressful time for me, and with the added complexity of living so far away with a big time difference. I really feel he has gone beyond what I would have expected, and would thoroughly recommend him and his team. A big thank you to you, Ollie. - Elizabeth Galbraith | February 2019

    Testimonials from Tenants

    • Tenant Testimonial

      I would definitely recommend them
      Ollie has been really responsive from the moment we contacted him. He has sorted any issue out efficiently and had followed up all queries immediately. The tenancy process was clear and quick unlike other experiences we have had. I had a problem with a repair on the property and all the team were really helpful, and resolved the issue fully. I would definitely recommend them as lettings agents. - Emma Castledine | March 2019
    • Tenant Testimonial

      My experience from start to finish was stress free
      First time using Jacobs Steel Lettings in finding the perfect place to live, which ticked all of my boxes! My experience from start to finish was stress free and despite giving them a very short timescale for moving, Sophie and Ollie were extremely professional, knowledgeable and basically made everything happen in a very short space of time. I can't thank them enough for all their help and would definitely recommend the team and use them again in the future. Huge thank you - Annalee Ward | August 2019

      Ashley Jacobs | Founding Director  
      Worthing born and bred, Ashley Jacobs and Derek Steel founded the business in 1984 with one office in Broadwater; and have since grown the company in to the well-respected, market leading estate agency it is today. The first shop on Broadwater Boulevard was quickly followed by offices in Lancing, West Worthing, Shoreham, Worthing Town Centre and finally, Findon Valley. 

      Since Managing Director's Pat Barton & Matt Jacobs took on the company in 2018, Ashley has been enjoying semi-retirement. He still very much has a handle on the company's goings on and can often be found in our Town Centre office; however, he does now have that little bit of extra time for a few rounds of golf!

      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        Saved me literally hundreds of pounds
        I have been extremely happy with the service I received from Mel and Luke. Mel saved me literally hundreds of pounds with her initial advice on leaving things as they were. Luke then took up the reins with viewings and the sale. He has been a wonderfully calm and professional voice in my ear, especially when things got a bit hairy near to the exchange. Thank you both! - Nigel Jackson | May 2019
      • Seller Testimonial

        Great communication & diligent due care
        The team were brilliant with what should have been a straight forward sale/purchase, that turned into a complex & lengthy process. Great communication, plain English explanations & diligent due care throughout the whole journey. Special mention to Luke & Mel who were excellent throughout. Everything that you could want from an Estate agent & definitely against the grain from the others. Thoroughly Recommended . - Phil O'Hare | May 2019
      • Seller Testimonial

        Failed twice with an online agent
        Having tried and failed twice with an online agent, who was basically just an expensive advertising service, we finally achieved a fast well managed sale with Luke and Jacobs Steel. Local experience and knowledge second to none - Rob Markworth | March 2019

      Testimonials from Buyers

      • Buyer Testimonial

        The service I've had has been first class
        I walked into Jacobs Steel office on 16.11.18 and asked if they had a property to match my requirements -- it was unbelievable how all my wishes were in the property I have now purchased -- first floor apartment, at Goring, all electric, garage, south facing balcony, the right price. The service I have had has been first class -- Jacobs Steel have kept in touch with my solicitor, the vendor and myself. I collected the keys yesterday and move in next Monday 4th February. Thank you all. - Graham Nightingale | February 2019
      • Buyer Testimonial

        It's clear they work well as a team
        Viewed several properties with this agent. The agents were helpful, and interested in the properties they were selling. Anything they didn't know they followed up, and gave prompt answers. During the buying process they kept on top of things, providing a seamless service between buyer, seller, and solicitor. It is clear that they work well as a team, and I am grateful for the professional service I have received. - Andrew Asprey | February 2019
