    We would like to take this opportunity to announce that in January 2019 we attended the Property Franchise Group Annual Conference at De Vere Beaumont Estate in Windsor. 

    During the day speeches and exhibitions were held which were highly interesting and gave the team some further insight into the potential future of our industry. During the evenings awards ceremony we were honoured to receive the Number 1 Whitegates Office Award for the third year! It's a massive achievement winning the award once but to win it three times in a row is exceptional!


    We work incredibly hard on a day to day basis to ensure we provide an exceptional service to all our clients and, as the largest lettings agents in Huddersfield, with a portfolio growing daily, we will continue to thrive and succeed!

    Chan Khangura, Managing Director of Whitegates Huddersfield said "I am delighted that my office has won the Number 1 Whitegates Award for the third year running. To win a national award such as this gives me great pride and it is a fitting tribute to the systems and processes, we have in place here, the wonderful landlords, vendors, tenants and purchasers we deal with and most of all the fantastic staff who work tirelessly every day provide the best service there is. The conference was a great experience, and this just tops it off! I am a very proud employer and hope next year we can make it fourth successive win "

We are ARLA Registered Offering you peace of mind
  • paragraph

    With Whitegates, your chances are much enhanced, as our marketing sets us apart from other agents. Our property portal presence alongside tactical digital marketing gives greater exposure to your property to minimise those costly void periods.

    Of course you don't just want any tenant in your property. A classic mistake of the 'do-it-yourself' landlord is to just put anyone in the property without properly checking them out. At Whitegates we have access to comprehensive referencing services to give greater clarity on a prospective tenant's background which all helps minimise potential future tenancy issues.

    With letting comes inherent risk which, whilst can never be eliminated, Whitegates can minimise that risk by getting things right from the very beginning - referencing tenants properly, taking care of safety legislation compiling a detailed inventory and drawing up a legally-sound tenancy agreement.

    We are ARLA registered (the Association of Residential Letting Agents) who ensure any situation can be handled in the correct legal manner and resolved as quickly as possible. The laws can be rather complex at times and our staff spend many hours learning it so that you don't have to!

    We are also covered by the ARLA Client Money Protection scheme - giving you peace of mind that your money is protected. 

    We strongly believe in the transparency of our service and we will clearly state all fees to you before we let your property. Our transparency goes even further as we are members of the Property Ombudsman scheme and adhere to this rigorous code of practice and redress scheme.

    Inspecting your property once it is let is a crucial part of our property management service, providing you with the comfort of knowing exactly how the property is being cared for by your tenant. When a tenant leaves your property Whitegates property management staff will handle the detailed inspection to ensure your property has been left in the acceptable condition you'd expect it to be and will deal with the release of the tenancy deposit - taking away a major 'hassle' from you.

    So if you are looking for an agent to find a tenant and/or manage your property, contact ourselves and see how we can work together with you to keep your investments performing.

      Energy Performance Certificates
      image cannot be displayed

      You are required to have an up to date Energy Performance Certificate to market your property. This provides the prospective buyers with information regarding the energy performance of your individual property. We work closely with a local expert Inspector who will visit your property to obtain the necessary information required to compile the Report and this will be provided direct to the branch to ensure that there is no delay in marketing your property. The Report will belong to you and will be valid for a ten year period. If you currently hold an EPC for your property it is important to consider whether any changes have been made since the supply of the certificate that may have affected the energy performance of the property (for example, a new central heating boiler or loft insulation).
