With more than 20 years experience in residential lettings and property management, as a Landlord starting off with 1 property or an investor with a portfolio of properties you can be confident that by choosing Whitehouse Estates you are in safe hands.
The experience that we have gained by being Landlords ourselves for many years gives us a distinct advantage over many of the letting agents in the Northwest, who quite frankly do not have the understanding of the business that we do when it comes to caring for property and dealing with tenants on a day to day basis. What we are completely aware of from personal experience is that there is a lot more to property management than simply signing tenants up and collecting fees, any agent can carry out this task.
Our idea of a good agent is one that you not only trust implicitly, which goes without saying, but one that works hard on your behalf to find the right tenant for your property, responds quickly to all issues relating to the property and tenancy in general including any maintenance and repair issues, carries out regular visits to the property, prevents rent arrears and understands and is up to date with all current and future property legislation that affects both property and tenant.
This is what we would expect from an agent looking after our properties and it is the commitment of Whitehouse Estates to deliver a management service that goes that extra mile to ensure a successful tenancy for your property.
As a small, totally independent and family run agency, Whitehouse Estates operates a very hands on approach which we feel is essential when it comes to managing your property which we believe to be a major factor in the success of our agency. We know how important it is to get everything right prior to a tenant(s) signing a tenancy agreement. Our personal experience in vetting and dealing with tenants is critical in ensuring that the tenancy runs smoothly. Rigorous checking, referencing, inventories, deposit collections and so on are extremely important, however another important factor which money can’t buy or books can’t teach is having the experience, intuition and communication skills during the tenant application process all of which derive from many many years of experience in dealing with potential tenants for ours and our landlords properties. We provide a firm, professional and efficient level of service for our landlords which is supported with over two decades of practical and legal experience and would explain why most of our landlords come from recommendations from other landlords.
The acquisition of our new high street office in Prescot, Merseyside allows us to market our properties from a highly visible shop front located in the town centre of Prescot. In addition we are conveniently located to major motorway and road networks allowing us to travel to any property within the Northwest within half an hour.
Whitehouse Estates also provides its own in-house building service which can deal with all property building and maintenance work, from changing a door lock to building a new extension and everything in between (24/7 service, see our building & maintenance section). All our staff are fully qualified tradesmen, our gas engineers and electricians are both GAS SAFE and NICEIC registered allowing us to carry out any type of installation or repair and provide certification for your compliance.
