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

We have just started renting through Symonds & Sampson and so far the whole process has been dealt with fantastically. Rachael and her team are both personal and professional - they are highly efficient and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend them, in particular Rachael.

Symonds & Sampson have been my letting agents now for over 12 months and I find both Trudi and Andrea polite, professional and friendly and would highly recommend to anyone looking to let their property. They communicate throughout the whole process.

I have been with Symonds & Sampson for over 10 years for the rental of my properties. They have always been really helpful, quick and professional with any queries or problem I may have. Thoughout the whole process of getting new tenants through to the end of their term, they organise and deal with everything and I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Thank you Trudi and Andrea.

I have rented a flat through Trudi and Symonds & Sampson, they couldn't have been more helpful. The inside looked immaculate, they were always there to help. I also carry out some garden maintenance and fencing work for them as an approved contractor. They always want a competitive price but with quality and reliability in mind to deliver the best possible service for their customers.

I can honestly say that I'm super impressed with the service and supportive attitude I received from Trudi, Carol and Andrea. I can't say how much easier they have made my tenancy during the 4 1/2 years of dealing with Symonds & Sampson. As a tenant, it is reassuring to know that whenever I have a problem or query, I just need to ask and someone is always willing to help. I recommend them without hesitation.

I have just let my Sherborne property through Symonds & Sampson. Their letting manager Lucy Nolan was friendly and professional. She gave excellent advice and the whole letting, vetting and check-in process was swift and efficient.
