Established over 20 years ago, a family business like Pennington takes pride in the fact that the majority of our business is by recommendation and word of mouth.

Pennington Team
  • Introduction

    Our teams are co-ordinated by our Managing Director Robert Ulph and Financial Director Paula Bennett who are readily available, completely hands on and have developed such a superb team to support and work with them.

  • Team Member

    Lettings/Sales  Team: DAN, PAUL, JASMINE
    Our sales team are the front end of the business they meet and greet our customers - landlords and tenants matching people and property. They have to understand what people want and make certain they manage and meet everyone's expectations using their experience and their personable touch. Whilst the sales team are great they also benefit from the performance of the rest of the business and the facts highlighted below speak for themselves:- • A significant number of our new instructions come from referrals and recommendations. • We build strong relationships with our tenants who trust us and consequently come back to Penningtons to rent their next home - making certain we have a ready supply of good quality tenants with a good track record. • We consistently have more properties to let than any other local agent - thus attracting more tenants to our websites and offices. • We consistently let more properties than any other local agent - demonstrating that we are converting tenant enquiries into quality lettings
  • Team Member

    Quality lettings is the essence of a successful lettings business - our letting co-ordinators are critical in this process - we make no apologies for rejecting prospective occupiers that we do not think are appropriate. It is our job to make sure we protect your property and do everything we can to ensure your tenants stay for long periods, pay rent on time and look after it. When we assess a tenant's application - we don't rely solely on credit checks and 3rd party referencing - we believe there is no better way of finding out about them than by directly contacting previous landlords and employers. Our experienced letting co-ordinators pride themselves in taking a personal approach - taking responsibility and giving proper referencing feedback to our landlords. Making the right decisions at this point is so important as it not only protects our clients but it makes great business sense for us too - saving us time and money in dealing with difficult situations down the line.
  • Team Member

    Letting a property and moving the tenants in is only the start - then the real hard work starts and this is where we earn our money - protecting you and your property assets. Our property managers are meticulous in managing our landlords' property - they are real experts and will provide you with: • Detailed schedules of condition - which are so important for negotiating final check outs. • Regular Inspection reports - generated onsite and e-mailed directly to you - so you can be sure your property is being looked after. • Skilled and experienced negotiations when required with tenants / neighbours / block managing agents / contractors / Insurance companies to ensure your interests are always looked after. • Project management and access to approved contractors to undertake any maintenance or refurbishment works on your property. • A quick and reliable maintenance service that ensures tenants problems are dealt with quickly and efficiently. • Keeping tenants happy and treating them fairly means they will stay for longer and come back to Penningtons time and again to rent new property ensuring we have a ready supply of quality tenants.
  • Team Member


    Managing the financial side of the business is fundamental to being a landlord. • We comply with the strictest financial codes and are regularly audited. • The accounts team headed by Paula are simply amazing - they ensure 80% of our rent roll is collected by the 2nd day of the month and paid into your account within 2-3 working days. • Unlike many of our competitors we pride ourselves on making daily payment runs which ensures our landlords will get their money as soon as possible. • Our rent arrears are minimal even in this time of austerity. Low levels of rent arrears is a reflection of good property management making certain that the right quality tenants are in place in the first instance. • Jenny and Theresa, part of our admin team, are probably the longest serving staff members within our business and have clocked up nearly 50 years working for Penningtons between them - you would be hard pushed to find a more experienced team anywhere.

    Quality Customer Service
    • Introduction

      At Pennington we pride ourselves on Customer Service, below is an example of what our valued customers have said about us ...

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      "I have just moved back into my flat which Penningtons have looked after since 2003 whilst I was living in New Zealand. Apart from the odd month the flat has been tenanted out constantly since 2003. I have been very impressed with the level of service from Penningtons throughout this time always keeping me informed of any issues and changes of tenants. Any issues were dealt with immediately using trusted tradespeople who were very reasonably priced. The flat has been kept in an excellent condition and was absolutely spotless when I moved back in. If we need to let out the flat again I will certainly be returning to Penningtons" Sally (Landlord)
    • Landlord Testimonial

      "I just wanted to say thanks for getting my flat re-let so quickly, sorting out the paperwork and finances meticulously and for ensuring a well maintained flat. I am very very impressed by all of you and the way you have managed my little flat over the last year." Julia Edwards (Landlord)
    • Landlord Testimonial

      "To receive a 20 page detailed inventory of content and condition was brilliant. To read through it and see the detail in fixtures and fittings, the condition of everything down to the kitchen sink, every picture hook mark to furniture indentation was refreshing. To then see every room, every fixture and every fitting photographed detailing the condition on commencement of tenancy was the finishing touch. To have this document then signed by both agent and tenant made me call my other agents, send them a copy and say... 'See, that's how you do it.. learn from Pennington!' You have looked after my property for several years now, it has never had any void periods over a few weeks, the tenants have always been great and the rent has been paid on time month after month without fail." Carl (Landlord)
    • Landlord Testimonial

      "My property was marketed AND let before I could blink!
