1. Compliance with legislation
There are over 400 rules and regulations governing the letting of a rental property, with potential fines of up to £30,000 for breaches and non-compliance. From deposit protection, data protection and right to rent, to health and safety, HMO legislation and more, the legislative landscape changes regularly and maintaining compliance involves constant vigilance. We take the risk, stress and responsibility for you.

Top quality service from well trained and highly professional staff. I've been with Tomlinson's for 17 years and that's why I've stayed with them in spite of tempting offers from other agents in the district. Their office is always smart and tidy with an air of calm efficiency.
Tomlinson Estate Management have been letting my student accommodation for several years and I can recommend them absolutely. They simply do a great job from start to finish, reliably finding tenants and ensuring all the formalities are completed without fuss. No caveats, no ifs, buts or maybes - the team does a great job.
As a landlord I have used Tomlinson for a number of years. Their team have been quick to respond, highly professional and pleasant to deal with. They have always tried hard to accommodate any requests I have made and have sorted any issues with the property promptly and effectively. As the property was no longer required I asked Tomlinson’s to handle the sale. This they did with their usual high standard of service finding me a selection of interested parties and eventually securing a buyer who completed during lockdown. I have no hesitation in recommending Joe, Tom and all the team.
From a business perspective Tomlinson Estates are immaculate! They deliver on time (rare these days) they are efficient and have always let my property ahead of schedule each and every year. If they say they will ring you back they do and if any problems arise with maintenance etc they deal with the matter in a professional and economical way. Whilst still remaining professional ALL the staff go beyond the norm, they have a sense of humour (always an asset) are very welcoming and they even give me lifts into town to go shopping when I visit! I can't recommend them highly enough!
