We are an independent lettings agency based in Bow, East London. We are experts at finding great tenants, managing the property, and refurbishment. We specialise in looking after properties mainly in East London, ie, the ‘E’ postcodes. We offer a personal service to a small number of landlords, tenants and properties, bringing peace of mind and a caring ethos to all.
- Tenants want to live in – and care for – a genuine home away from home.
- Landlords have a responsibility to provide a safe and fully-functioning home for their tenants.
- Property management should never be an afterthought.
Many years back when I was a tenant, I was taken to court by a rogue agent and landlord. It came as a shock because it was some two years since I left the property. Allegedly, I caused excessive damage and therefore, loss of rent. This was far from the truth, so I foolishly represented myself in court, thinking, “I’m innocent, of course I will win”. In the end, I did but it took gruelling 18 months, during which, the inside of my hair turned completely white due to stress.
This experience was a pivotal moment for me. It distinctly put an impression on me that:
- There must be other tenants who may live in fear of their landlord or agent, and landlords who may be misguided by unscrupulous agents;
- I will probably be a landlord one day and my relationship with tenants should never come to this stage;
- And if agents are the go-between, I must find out what they do.
I wanted to do something tangible for my community in East London so in October 2014, I took the leap and jumped feet first into launching an independent lettings business.
