Market Drayton is a traditional market town in the North Shropshire countryside, situated on the River Tern, between Shrewsbury and Stoke-on-Trent, with good links across Shropshire and Staffordshire. With origins dating back to before the Domesday book the modern buildings in the town centre mix with fine examples of 17th century black and white constructions. Barbers Market Drayton Branch can easily be found on Maer Lane opposite Morrison's, only 20 minutes from Junction 15 on the M6.

What agent could do to change your mind?
Agent fees have to be there as of every other fee we pay in life but i do feel charging to pay on debit card is a little unfair. I also feel that 300 pound should be the fixed price instead of then another 60 for a second application.

Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for, I use Barbers for lettings they source my tenants, they do a full credit check and interview the tenants before the sign the contracts. We haven't had a bad tenant.
