Backed into a corner and at our wits-end dealing with the Freeholder (landlord) in order to acquire the freehold on our property, we instructed Samuel Boot at Pennycuick Collins to proceed our behalf.
At first, we thought we could cut costs and deal with the freehold purchase ourselves. We did our research and armed ourselves with legal information from the Internet and proceeded with an offer.
Of course our offer was refused, and after a very lengthy process of wrangling back and forth with a greedy and uncooperative landlord, we ended up offering an amount at the top of our budget; the landlord once again refused and told us that our offer was substantially low.
That’s when Samuel Boot saved the day; to cut a long story short, Samuel acquired our freehold for less money than we personally offered the landlord.
I can honestly say, hiring Pennycuick Collins will save you a lot of time, frustration, and money.
Whilst Samuel is very professional, he’s also approachable and nothing is too much trouble. Emails were always replied to instantly and we were kept informed at all times.
I’d definitely recommend Pennycuick Collins, their fees are very reasonable and will save you money, not to mention preventing landlords from taking advantage.
Mr & Mrs Hackett
I would like to thank you all for the very professional and personalized nature with which you have managed my property. I was always sceptically as to the value of having a letting agency look after my property. I had many concerned regarding such issues as relationships between tenant and letting agent not to mention the cost of maintaining my property. I have to say that it was an absolute pleasure and peace of mind to have the kind of support that I have received from Emma Billingham and other staff such as Lucy Roberts and Tanya Bennett before her. Knowing that payments were chased, visits to the property conducted and that I kept up to date of all events and could always get a fast response to any enquirers was great and gave me the peace of mind that as a landlord is so important especially when I moved abroad. Other issues such as Building & Content Insurance was also available at a very reasonable price direct through Pennycuick and your staff even made sure to remind me when it was due and automatically renewed it for me so that I did not need to concern myself with it.
Overall I want to thank you for all your help and support it was a real pleasure working with you!
I and my family have been associated with Pennycuick Collins for very many years and have always been satisfied with the very professional and prompt service that they provide in connection with general property management and, when required, advice on other property related matters.
