    Lettings Agent near Preston

    Hi, I'm a new BTL investor and my first purchase is due to complete on Friday.

    I signed up with a lettings agency which I thought had a good reputation but thus far I've had difficulty contacting them and getting what I've asked for from them. It doesn't bode well. I had difficulty contacting them before I signed up but was assured I would have a named person to contact once signed up.

    Since signing the contract I've had no contact from the agency other than trying to sell me snagging services.

    As I'm within the 14 day cooling off period I'm thinking I might be better off cancelling and going elsewhere.

    Can anyone recommend a company they have dealt with?

    Hi Shirley

    I have a property in Preston and I would highly recommend Northwood.  Because I'm so far away, I have mine let on a guaranteed rent scheme.  You don't get as much each month, but there are no headaches, Northwood deal with everything, and they keep me in the loop if anything needs to be done.

    Thanks Carol. I'm not really looking for a guaranteed rent scheme. I need a decent return and losing 12% is enough of a loss at this point in time. I might change my mind down the line though! Good to know Northwood are good for future reference.

    Thanks Vanessa, I didn't realise they did full management too so I'll give them a call.
