Our commitment is to give you a professional and personal service with regular updates during the renting process. Communication is of paramount importance to us.


We know how best to bring a property to the lettings market, how to present it and how to find the right tenant through an in depth and thorough referencing procedure. We understand the importance of finding the ‘right’ tenant.

Your property will be marketed on Rightmove, Onthemarket.com and of course our own website. View a list of current rental properties.


A full marketing campaign gives one the confidence that all opportunities have been explored and we can tailor this to your personal wishes.


Advertising will be in a selection of local papers and magazines. All our advertisements will appear in colour.


If applicable we are able to issue press releases when the property is launched. We will work with you to draft this release to include some history of the property, or people who have occupied it previously and any other interesting stories.

The release will be circulated to local and regional property editors. We also maintain strong links to national property editors and will look to promote your property wherever appropriate


We are very open about To Let boards - some people like to have one and others don’t. We do find that sometimes even just an arrow board is helpful especially if it is a rural property and hard to find.


We choose to be answerable to leading professional bodies, not all letting agents want to be accountable for their actions. We like to maintain the highest professional standards by conforming to the guidelines of the industry's leading organisations. It's a clear sign you're dealing with a thoroughly reputable and respected agent.


Detailed information of the property will be immediately forwarded to all those applicants who are registered with Balfours looking for similar properties and viewings will be arranged as soon as is mutually convenient.


Balfours understand the importance of peace of mind and we strive to ensure you have this throughout the tenancy.
