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

I contacted Symonds & Sampson due to my concerns and frustration with my current agent. I was treated with respect and professionalism from the outset from everyone, they work as a team and the communication at all times is excellent, the conditions are clear and you know your in good hands, taking all the stress away. Highly recommended, thank you David, Lucy & Ismay.

Trudi, Karen and Gemma and a fantastic lettings team. They are always available and ready to resolve any concerns quickly and with the utmost professionalism. They have a super network of all trades available to deal with any household maintenance for the let and have always found tenants for us without delay. We are delighted with the friendly and professional service and would be delighted to recommend them to anyone looking for a lettings agency.

I have used Symonds & Sampson as a tenant, a landlord and to sell a property. I am immensely grateful for the Blandford office who have been professional, courteous and prompt in all communication. Based on my experience of them as a tenant, they were the only agency I wanted to use as a landlord. I was not disappointed Clare and the team did an amazing job, particularly as I was living on the other side of the planet. When it came to selling, I got useful advice about decorating and the presentation of the property. The two departments worked well together which was extremely helpful. If you want a pragmatic, no-nonsense, approach to property, these are the people are to use.
