My First Landlord Experience – Daniel Brown

When Daniel’s mother-in-law passed away, he and his wife had a decision to make about her three-bedroom family home by the sea in Lancing. As they lived and worked in London, it didn’t make sense for them to move and live in the house themselves, so they decided it would be a good idea to rent it out until they decided it was the right time for them to move. Not local to Lancing, they searched for an estate agent who would be able to properly look after the property and manage the tenants for them. After some research and meetings with different agents and initially instructing another agent, Daniel moved to Michael Jones & Co.

Daniel commented: “The enquiry was handled well by Michael Jones and they demonstrated a lot of knowledge of the local letting market.

As members of ARLA Propertymark – the UK’s largest professional and regulatory body for letting agents – we are dedicated to providing the highest possible standard of service for our landlords and tenants.

Daniel said: “The best piece of advice I’ve been given as a landlord is to choose your managing agent carefully. The process of letting my property has been so easy since I joined Michael Jones.

By offering a tailored and flexible approach to letting and management, it allows our landlords to choose the right level of service for them and their property. From a simple ‘tenant find’ service, to full management, we guide landlords through the entire process, whether they are experienced or whether it’s their first time letting a property.

Daniel added: “Living in London I opted for a fully managed service as I am too far away to fully manage the property myself. Working with the team at Michael Jones is a pleasure and it shows what is achievable when the landlord, tenant and letting agent work together in a joined-up way.”
