The Agent dealt effectively and professionally with outgoing tenants and provided valuable advice and assistance in successfully claiming compensation from the Tenants for dog-chewed and dirty carpets, water-damaged kitchen and badly scuffed paintwork. The Agent arranged with less than co-operative outgoing tenants to accommodate viewings of the property and did all the paperwork, Bank references, and Inventory for the new tenants with the minimum of input from ourselves and in a very short ti...

Comment on agent fees
The Agents Fees were very reasonable in view of the significant number of visits and letters involved with the outgoing tenants, we were more than satisfied, so much so that we queried whether the Agent had charged enough - he agreed he had.

As a landlord living overseas, I have been using the expert services of Westdale Property Letting Agency to manage my multi unit apartment building for over 10 years. The service that Peter and his assistant Shirley provide is second to none. They take away all of the stress of being an "absentee landlord", always keeping me informed of building maintenance, regulatory and tenancy issues as they arise. I can highly recommend Westdale to any landlord looking for a personal, professional...

Peter Hancock has been managing my house rental for about 8 years. He gives me excellent service and nothing seems to be any trouble to him. He has helped me with quotes for house repairs etc. and overseen it as I live out of the country. He is very trustworthy,helpful and knowlegable of rental issues both practically and legally. . He has no 'small print" or hidden agenders. I would not use anyone else, he gives an excellent service and I highly reccomend him....

Westdale Letting Agency have always dealt with the letting of my property in a professional and courteous manner. Quick to respond to problems and able negotiators between landlord and tenant. It matters that they act locally as agents as they know the area and the needs of potential tenants. They are always a voice on the end of the phone or willing to call and see you personally. With bigger letting agencies you are often unable to speak with the person in charge and are often left waitin...

We are a Trust Fund owning several properties in Bovey Tracey, Devon, including the Vicarage and several cottages. Peter Hancock took over Westdale several years ago from Lynn Dent. We could not have found Peter more helpful in dealing with what is not a straightforward portfolio. There is always immediate and personal contact when needed. He anticipates prospective problems and initiates any necessary programmes. As Secretary of the Trust I have enjoyed a confident personal relationship wi...

We have had our property with Westdale for 20 years, first with Lynn Dent (with whom we were more than satisfied ) and subsequently with Peter Hancock (and Shirly Grove for the whole time). As we live away from the property which is let in Devon, (we lived first in London and then in Lincolnshire), it has been very important to have someone we trust managing the letting,. Westdale have been more than efficient in this, and have always been reliable, and approachable. We have a very good relat...

We were already using a larger Estate Agents to manage our property. I needed a more personal touch that we were not getting, and as my wife and I are both very busy ... we needed somebody to take control. Peter handled the handover brilliantly, and at the same time one of the tenants decided to leave ... he handled that situation with the legals and the tenants and us brilliantly and smoothly. It could have been very messy. But it was not. His management is so much closer to the ground than...
