When searching for a letting agent, it is important that you are dealing with a reputable and competent organisation.

The key to success is finding a letting agent who will market your property professionally, source reliable tenants and achieve the best rental price.

Covering much of the south-west of the city, the Blundells lettings branch on Ecclesall Road pride themselves on offering a first-class service to landlords and tenants, having successfully let and managed properties across the region for over 17 years.

This experience gives landlords the peace of mind to know that they’re dealing with an established agent who has the skills and expertise to ensure their property is let quickly, efficiently and at the best price.

The strategically-positioned branch is open six days a week and offers flexible viewing times and property market 
appraisal appointments.

Prospective tenants and landlords can inquire 24 hours a day via the new website and by smartphone, where over 25% of all inquiries now originate.

The branch benefits from high amounts of foot traffic with many prospective tenants stopping to look at properties in their LED lit window display.

New tenants being able to walk straight in to the office and speak to a lettings specialist allows the negotiators to get to know the applicants and match them up to suitable properties.

The Ecclesall Road branch has found properties for over 100 tenants so far in July and is letting in record time.

Lettings negotiator Sharon Holland said: “The market is certainly hotting up and we’re letting properties quicker than ever, sometimes before they even come on the market.

“With good demand for most rental accommodation, it is essential that we match tenants to suitable properties, as well as conducting all the necessary checks and references in order to safe guard our landlord clients.

“With the rental market being so buoyant, it may be tempting for landlords to go it alone, however the risks are still there and by using a reputable agent you can significantly reduce the chances of having a bad tenant.”

As members of the property ombudsman, Blundells Lettings are bound by strict rules of conduct and a code of practice to ensure that they offer the highest level of integrity and service to all their clients.

The Ecclesall Road branch also has Facebook and Google pages where prospective tenants can register to receive email updates as soon as new properties come on to the market.
