About Us

We appreciate that all landlords are unique

Guildhall Residential Lettings’ staff have an extensive amount of experience in property management. We offer outstanding advice to suit you and adhere to your personal situation, whilst helping to rent your property. Landlords require different options in the way their property is managed based upon their own involvement. Subsequently, we offer a range of services that will meet your specific requirements. For those who do not desire or are unable to be involved in the day to day management of their property, but wish to achieve a constant and steady income stream then the Ultimate Guaranteed Income Scheme ticks all boxes. Alternatively three further property management packages are available.

The Property Ombudsman

Being a member of the The Property Ombudsman means that any complaints are dealt with by an independent 3rd party, ensuring resolutions are reached quickly and allowing agents and customers to focus on other matters. Obviously, by complying with their codes of practice we try to ensure no complaints exist in the first place.
