Residential Lettings

Shires Residential Letting Agents have one of the largest lettings portfolios in the area, with properties ranging from studio flats to large family homes, within both local towns and the surrounding countryside.

Why choose us to let your property?

Prominent advertising & marketing

We will ensure your property gains maximum exposure through our tried and tested marketing strategies. Each property will be displayed prominently on our new website and be uploaded to the leading property portals including Rightmove, On The Market and AHRN. We also continue to use traditional advertising methods, including regular local newspaper adverts and clear window displays, both of which we regularly gain leads from.

Tenants waiting

We have an active applicant list of tenants seeking properties from small flats to large houses and searching for properties within the areas surrounding each of our branches. Working together, we will manage the timescales to ensure your property remains vacant for the minimum amount of time possible, avoiding large losses of rental income.

Buy to let advice

Our large portfolio of managed properties, together with our experience in the property market and our knowledge of the local area, places us in an enviable position to provide clients with advice on the types of properties which should be purchased to suit their investment needs. We discuss requirements with landlords in order to enhance their investment returns. Our advice includes indications of projected yield and recommended improvements. We can also introduce you to trusted local contractors to undertake any improvements.

Strong relationship with the US Air Force

We are proud of the working relationship that we have developed with the nearby US military bases – RAF Mildenhall, RAF Lakenheath and RAF Feltwell. Over the years, we have found many homes for our American friends to ensure they settle as quickly as possible. We liaise with the USAF Housing Management Office and undertake a pre-inspection of your property to ensure it passes a USAF inspection first time. We also prepare Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements (AST’s), compliant with American market requirements.

We can also help you with a full range of property management services.

Why rent a property through Shires Residential?

Friendly and approachable staff

We fully understand that when renting a property, there are many factors to take into consideration – from the documents you need to supply to the full tenancy agreement. Renting property to tenants on a daily basis, we pride ourselves on clearly outlining the process in plain English and explaining the agreement to ensure there are no unwanted surprises. Our staff will work with you to find a property that ticks the right boxes and keep you updated with regular text alerts to help you to be first to secure the home you’re looking for.

Tenant protection

Tenants are provided with a clear and comprehensive photographic inventory at the beginning of the tenancy agreement; this includes the condition of the property and any of the contents. At the end of the agreement, the tenant may refer to this to ensure the return of their security deposit. We are also members of both the UKALA and The Property Ombudsman.

Trusted maintenance contractors

As a tenant, it is your right to live in a property that is in a healthy state. Here at Shires Residential we ensure the properties we let are safe and any maintenance issues are dealt with pro-actively through our reliable contractors. All information regarding the maintenance and condition of the property you are renting will be clearly outlined in your tenancy agreement, which we will be happy to talk you through upon request before you secure the property.
