Leading property agency, My Homelettings is celebrating as it approaches a key milestone.
The business, which is based in Middlesbrough but manages properties across the Tees Valley has helped hundreds of landlords and tenants over the last decade.
The firm which has grown in strength and reputation as a specialist, local residential letting agency offers managed and non-managed services for landlords.
Founder of My Homelettings, local businessman Paul Ladyman, said: “When I set up the business a decade ago, I had a clear ethos to treat every property we work with as if it’s our own as I aimed to become one of the most trusted agencies in the area.”
“Since we launched in 2009, we have continued to develop through some tough times, we were hit with the economic downturn early on, and this did have its challenges as inevitably the property market suffers when there are times of uncertainty.
“When you work in the property industry, you do get used to the ups and downs of the market, but I was always confident that the business would be a success due to our conscientious attitude and extensive experience.
Paul has seen many changes in the property sector over the last decade and believes the local lettings market is still in a healthy position for new and experienced landlords to invest.
“We work hard to match the right tenant with the right property, and experienced property specialists support and maintain all of the properties in our portfolio,” added Paul.
“We understand that letting your property, especially for the first time, can be a worrying experience, we also never forget that it’s your most important asset which is why we pride ourselves on providing the best possible service.”
With over 150 legislative processes and responsibilities of letting a private dwelling to be considered My Homelettings work continuously in the background to ensure that clients and tenants are always safe and compliant within the law.
The imminent Tenant Fee Ban and Right to Rent legislation as well as changes to the housing health bill mean it has never been a more high-profile time to be in the industry.
The agency is now looking forward to the next ten years and already has its sights on expanding its managed property lettings portfolio by 20% over the next 12 months.
