It’s the situation every Landlord and Tenant dread; an ongoing dispute over a tenancy deposit. It causes stress, is time-consuming and can be expensive – for both sides.

A report which came out recently showed that disputes over tenancy deposits were at their highest since 2007. But it doesn’t need to be this way.

Using a local, experienced and consistent Lettings Agent like ours at ‘Iles & Jenkin’ is a big step on the path to avoiding tenancy disputes further down the line.

Experience really counts in the world of lettings and we’ve been doing it for 17 years, day in day out. During this time there’s hardly any issue that we’ve not come across ourselves and dealt with successfully.

Also, having a consistent person to deal with is really helpful if you are a Landlord or Tenant. Neil Jenkin, our Lettings Director, has been managing our Lettings portfolio since day one and to ensure best practice constantly attends training days, conferences and seminars to ensure that he is keeping up to date with the ever-changing legislation surrounding the Lettings Industry.

Many of our team have been with us for years and that builds up rapport, trust and understanding with our clients as letting a property is an ongoing relationship. We don’t just ‘let it and leg it’!

And our Lettings office is right here in Worle, Weston-super-Mare, not in a centralised call centre somewhere ‘up north’ or maybe overseas even (like some Corporate Agencies).

By instructing us at ‘Iles & Jenkin’ to manage your investment property you’ll be choosing an Agent who has excellent knowledge of local property and you’ll be working with people who live and work locally too. You can even pop and have a cup of tea with us whenever you’re passing by!

So, don’t despair. A deposit disaster at the end of the tenancy can easily be avoided simply by choosing the right Letting Agent at the beginning of the tenancy. Then you can sit back and relax, secure in the knowledge that your property is in safe hands.

Thanks for reading!
