Landlords & Property Management

Dacre, Son & Hartley has been acting for landlords across Yorkshire for nearly 200 years. This experience, combined with our network of branches across the county, gives us an unparalleled insight into the Yorkshire rental market.

 

We are regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and are members of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA Property Mark), so you can be assured that you are dealing with a company that will conduct its practices to the very highest standards.

We let all types of property from city apartments to country cottages, from commuter-belt semis to large detached homes. As one of the leading letting agents in Yorkshire we have excellent connections with relocation experts and large employers, we receive a constant stream of enquiries from across the UK and abroad, as well as from those looking to move more locally.

Whether you are an experienced landlord, an investor in buy-to-let properties or an individual looking to let the family home, we have three levels of service to meet your needs from the 'Full Management' service to our entry level 'Let Only' service to our 'Rent Collection' service. All three options receive the same proactive and dynamic marketing approach including;

 

  • Targeted mailing to "hot" potential tenants

  • The preparation of quality brochures with floorplans and colour photographs
  • Regular advertising 
  • Comprehensive referencing through Homelet for your peace of mind
