Information & Fees for Landlords

Landlords Fees & Information

We tend to find that demand for unfurnished accommodation is far higher than the demand for furnished, there is less potential for dispute and there is little or no difference in the rent you will achieve. You will have to consider the cost of removal and storage if the property is already furnished.

Your Words, Not Ours

Thank you to the team at Symonds & Sampson Axminster for their support in arranging a short-term tenancy at one of their properties recently. Bailey and Amy were helpful and friendly, all my questions were answered promptly and they kept me informed through the process.

An excellent experience all round during a very challenging time. Rachel and Levi were superb in helping find, view and get into our new property in record time when we found ourselves forced into house hunting at a bad time of year. Cannot recommend them highly enough

We thank Trudi, Karen and Gemma for their “first class” efforts in enabling us to view the property and complete the documentation in time for 1st June; under very difficult and challenging semi-lockdown circumstances. Excellent team work!
