Latest news from Atkinson Stilgoe
The rental market continues to grow and shows no signs of slowing down, according to local lettings agency Atkinson Stilgoe. As part of its national network of branches, Atkinson Stilgoe is seeing six tenants chase every rental property on the market across the UK and helped 24% more tenants move last year*. The local agent is urging landlords to take advantage of current high demand and asking prospective tenants to get in touch to secure the best properties on the market to let.
“The current climate in the residential sales market means that many more people are either having or choosing to rent,” says Stephen Nation, Group Lettings Managing Director at parent company Connells Group. “It’s no surprise therefore that we are registering high numbers of tenants and seeing demand for rental properties outstripping supply.”
“We deem ourselves the lettings experts – we are an experienced and award-winning agency which prides itself on our high levels of service and expertise,” Stephen continues. “We can help landlords find tenants, tenants find good rental accommodation, manage the day-to-day running of properties or help expand property portfolios. We urge customers to get in touch to see how we can best service their needs.”
Atkinson Stilgoe can offer a range of lettings services and advice, from matching tenants to their ideal properties to full property management, rent collection and insurance advice. If you have property to let, or are looking for a rental home, please contact you local lettings team.
