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.”


If you’re thinking about letting in your first property, or wish to grow your existing portfolio, we’re here to offer advice and answer all property, letting or management-related questions. We will help guide you through the process from start to finish.

    This is not about Michael Jones but one of their employee, Rob Stewards . Shout out you man and well done for the great service . Much appreciated. Keep it up . Rob was in charge of sorting thing out between my last landlord and myself … More at the end of the tenancy and helping return my deposit . For everyone renting , you know how it is always trying to get that money back. The landlords are always trying to make up stories in order to hold a chunk of your money . I cannot thank Rob enough for his outstanding wisdom in helping us to reach an agreement and avoiding dispute resolution . Although in the middle of the case , Rob went on holiday and things were not resolved as one of his colleague or rather manager tried . And my gut feeling was surely , Rob will get it sorted after his holiday and I was right . He got a compromise in no time .Many thanks Rob . God bless you and keep up the good work .

    I approached Michael Jones, letting Agents, ( amongst many services on offer), in order to locate and occupy a rental property for 6 months for two adults and a small dog.It was’nt easy finding accommodation for my dog....After a couple … More of dead ends, I found and made my interest known to Michael Jones.From that point on, the process , whilst tricky for someone who had not rented before, was made easier and concluded by several team members of the agents. All of the solved problems were caused by my lack of understanding, but sorted by the letting agents.Special mention to Lisa , Of the progression Section, who steered me through several difficulties, and delivered the property for me , and in time....She was, I know, working until very late at night to ensure the transaction went smoothly.I would recommend Michael Jones, if you are looking for temporary accommodation, they are professional and capable agents.My thanks to all involved.Arthur Russell
