At Essex Property Centre our aim is to let your property at the best possible price in the shortest possible time. We have experienced, knowledgeable valuers who carry out volumes of rental valuations every month giving us a firm understanding of property values in the area. Perhaps this is why we deliver the best possible prices for all of our clients.
It's crucial to choose the right estate agent and consider various factors before deciding on one. More often than not fees aren't just the only deciding factor! Presence, marketing, experience and attitude should all be considered allowing for an informed decision.
With more and more tenants insisting on renting a fully managed premises, landlords too appreciate the necessity to offer peace of mind to their tenants.
Naturally first impressions count so the presentation of your property is critical to securing a fast, successful let at a maximum rental. Consider addressing any DIY jobs you have been meaning to do, a fresh coat of paint where necessary and declutter.
Don’t forget! Essex Property Centre have access to various, skilled, professional workmen offering competitive quotes on various types of jobs.

For your added peace of mind, where applicable we hold the deposit as a stakeholder (required by law to be registered in a certified rent deposit scheme) and register this with a deposit protection scheme (The Dispute Service). There is an additional fee of £20.00 + VAT for this service.
The funds (less any deductions) will be transferred into your account.
Due to The Tenant Fee Ban introduced in June 2019, we are unable to charge any fees to tenants.
However, we do obtain a ‘holding fee’ of £50.00 if you wish to take a property with us - which is deducted from your first months rent if your application proceeds to successful competition.
