    Your property is undoubtedly one of your largest and most valuable assets. It is therefore essential that you believe and trust in the company that you instruct to manage your property.

    McCartney Lettings is an independently owned company who have been trading in excess of 25 years.

    As a local and well established company, we firmly believe that service is the foundation of any successful business. Our aim is to provide our Landlords with an excellent service that will give peace of mind and a trouble free tenancy.

    We pride ourselves on our professionalism and experience. Our staff regularly attend training courses to keep informed of changes in the law and procedures that occur in the ever changing world of the rental market. We also subscribe to Letting Industry publications to help us keep abreast of developments and changes. Our flexibility allows us to adapt quickly and offer tailor made solutions.

    Our staff have excellent communication skills, are friendly and proactive with regard to maintenance issues. We are also skilled in negotiation of maintenance problems and deposit disputes.

    All properties are marketed within one day of appointment, with full internet coverage and local property paper marketing.

    We cover Chelmsford and immediate surrounding areas. We are members of the Property Ombudsman and we use the Deposit Protection Scheme "My Deposits" for the registration of tenant deposits. We have client money protection insurance, so if anything were to happen to the company, your money is insured.

    The majority of our business comes from repeat business, recommendations and referrals.

    We are truly different...
    • Your property is undoubtedly one of your largest and most valuable assets. It is therefore essential that you believe and trust in the company that you instruct to manage your property.
    • We pride ourselves on our professionalism, experience and independence. Our flexibility allows us to adapt quickly and offer tailor made solutions.
    • We are committed to you, always striving to give you the best possible service at reasonable rates. Unlike some letting agents we do not make an arbitrage on any maintenance bills, nor do we have any 'hidden' costs in our contract with you.
    • We subscribe to the major web portals to ensure that your property has the maximum exposure over the internet, as well as using local paper advertising and our highly distinctive letting boards.
    • We offer an Introduction Only Service or Fully Managed services with free valuations.
    • We can offer free rent warranty policies for all "Platinum Service" managed properties that cover loss of rent, legal fees for eviction and rent for up to two months when vacant possession is obtained. This is a rare occurrence but should always be considered when renting your property.
    • For managed properties, we always obtain meter reading and advise service providers when properties are tenanted. Some agents ask the tenants to do this for you, but if it is not, you could be liable for the bills!
    • We insist on 5 weeks rent as a deposit, this leaves some money back for any damages if the tenants with-hold their last month's rent. Again, this is a rare occurrence, but as a professional company, we are always looking to cover any situation or eventuality. The deposit is held by "My Deposits", an independent government scheme.
    • It is essential that a comprehensive and accurate inventory is drafted as this is used when checking for damage and dilapidations at the end of the tenancy. It will also be used for any disputes that go to mediation or Court. This service is included with fully managed properties.
    • Rental payments are sent by BACS for speedy payment. We do not 'sit-on' the rent and it is transferred within a maximum of 3 days of receipt.
    • We have a dedicated maintenance team. All our contractors have been used for several years, are reliable and friendly.
    • Your property is inspected quarterly to ensure the tenants are looking after it and we send your reports, confirming the inspection has taken place and the condition of the property. Were something untoward be noted, we would immediately contact you to advise of the circumstance and discuss any appropriate actions that you should take.
    • We have two offices in Chelmsford so you can have twice the exposure, increasing your chances to let your property.
    • McCartney have been successfully letting and managing Property in Chelmsford since 1992 and have a wealth of experience in this field. We offer a let only and a full management service.

      David Webb

      We have rented three properties through McCartney and have had excellent, personal service each time. Every time we have had to move because our landlord has sold the property they've helped us find something new quickly and easily. They use the latest technology for reporting maintenance issues, inventories and referencing, which makes things easy as a tenant. Communication has always been friendly and consistent. As a long time renter McCartney is the best I have dealt with.

I have rented a house from the team, lived in one managed by Shaun and with thanks to Brian and Sue, have recently purchased one in the area. This only leaves selling a house through McCartney and I am sure in time, I will do that too as they provide excellent service. Tom.

      Tom

I have no hesitation in recommending McCartney to any of my family and friends.

    CHOOSING THE RIGHT AGENT
    • service

      image cannot be displayed

      How do you choose the agent to sell or let your home?

      My name is Shaun Candler and I am the Director of McCartney Sales & Lettings. My advice would be, look for the agent that will be able to achieve the best possible price, and provide you with the best service from start to finish of the sales transaction.

      To get the maximum coverage there are important factors.

      Property Portals

      As well as having important web coverage i.e. Rightmove, Zoopla, Primelocation, Onthemarket etc, from my 30 years experience in the property market we find a lot of our buyers are clients that we have valued their property in the past but haven't placed their property on the market. These clients are very important and having access to these extra clients will undoubtedly spark more interest, therefore, helping achieve the best possible price. With demand so strong at the moment for property, their own property would I believe also sell very quickly.

      Open House

      Open house events work well as this helps to create a lot of interest on one day and competition between viewers to put forward their best offer.

      Going That Extra Mile

      Having confidently marketed the property and agreed on a selling price, you would want an agent that is going to go that extra mile for you. Too many agents at this point say well it's over to the solicitors now... our job is done!

      Everybody Working Together

      My advice would be to choose an agent that will work with the solicitors, surveyors, mortgage lenders, builders etc from the beginning to the completion of the sale. Too many sales fall through as sellers haven't got an agent on hand working to make sure everybody works together, ensuring the sale completes.

      Best Service, Best Price

      Any estate agent can advertise your property on the internet for a knocked down fee paid up front or a low commission percentage. But, if you're not getting that all-important service or the best possible price and seeing the sale through to completion, you're not only losing thousands by not having the local extra buyers, you also run the risk of the sale collapsing due to not having an agent to see the sale through.

      27 Years of Trading

      Over the last 27 years, we have helped and guided thousands of clients through this process and many have repeated the process several times with us.

      Local and Independent

      Having built up a local independent estate agency and letting offices, we have helped and advised many property investors and landlords, from single buy to lets, to large company property portfolios.

      Managing Hundreds of Properties

      Managing hundreds of properties and having trusted local tradespeople on hand, we are confident that we have an important edge on competitors. Keeping the cost of upkeep on your investment to a minimum, we will only ever charge you what our tradesmen quote. You will get regular inspections with feedback, monthly or yearly statements and your rent paid on time. With many tenants already letting through us, we already have knowledge of their suitability.

      Recommended

      Having been recommended by sellers and landlords for now over 27 years of trading, I am sure you will agree the place to sell or let your property is McCartney. For free advice on any property matter, feel free to call in for a coffee and a chat with Shaun and his friendly team.

        McCartney has been superb in finding me a tenant. They are a local firm with local knowledge who make the whole process so very smooth and easy. I would have no hesitation in recommending McCartney. Thanks again for a brilliant service!

        G. Napier

        I have known the team at McCartney for nearly 7 years and they have always patiently provided me with advice, whether renting or purchasing in the Moulsham area. I have rented a house from the team, lived in one managed by Shaun and with thanks to Brian and Sue, have recently purchased one in the area. This only leaves selling a house through McCartney and I am sure in time, I will do that too as they provide excellent service. Tom.

        Tom

        Thank you so much for all your hard work and help in the recent sale of Mum's house.

        Dear McCartney team, From start to finish I found McCartney's level of service and professionalism to be fantastic. They were always available to deal with queries and offer advice and support; perhaps more importantly they really provided us with a personalised, proactive service calling regularly to give us updates on developments and providing effective solutions to any problems which arose. I have no hesitation in recommending McCartney to any of my family and friends.
