Renting property and having the freedom to live where you want, when you want can be enormously appealing, particularly now the quality and choice of rental property is better than ever.

But these attractions can be short-lived if you don’t choose a reputable letting agent.

With Lampon Lets, you’ll get the reassurance of knowing that you’re dealing with rental experts who can guide you through the whole lettings process.

We’ll give you the benefit of our knowledge and advice for free. And, in line with legislation, you won’t pay tenant fees. Services like referencing and the preparation of a tenancy agreement will cost you nothing.

However, to effectively reserve the property you want while these are being actioned, we do take a holding deposit. This is fully refundable, subject to the successful approval of your application and your commencement of the tenancy.

You’ll also have the security of knowing any tenancy deposit monies will be paid to us and held by the Government-approved Tenancy Deposit Scheme, through its Custodial service. The TDS is the longest-running provider of deposit protection in England and Wales.

Rent through Lampon Lets and you’ll quickly appreciate the benefits of our commitment to letting property properly.
