Property to let ?

Compass Lettings was launched in 2011 after the acquisition of locally based lettings company Edward House Properties in 2010.

Originally Edward House Properties emerged from the JWM Group portfolio that over the years have provided affordable rental accommodation to clients in the Bedford and surrounding area. Compass intend to continue their ethos of providing an efficient, affordable and caring rental service to the community with an aim to build on their earlier success and to grow the lettings portfolio.

The Compass Team have extensive experience in residential rentals and can offer all aspects of lettings advice.

Compass Lettings offer the usual services to Landlords such as rent guarantee schemes, property insurance, gas safety certificates, EPC’s etc. Periodic inspections are carried out and the landlord is provided with an inspection report regarding the property state and condition.

Compass Lettings provide a free rental assessment service and offer advice on those considering a buy to let property. For all aspects of Property Management whether Full Management or Find a Tenant Service you can be assured of a complete service at Compass lettings at very competitive rates. Our guarantee is ‘No tenant – No fee’ – you pay nothing until Tenants have been secured.

Compass Lettings is supported by an efficient team of Electricians, Plumber, Decorators, Gardeners, Carpenters and general Maintenance Personnel who can be made available to the Landlord at short notice.
