“We have been using The Home Agency as agents for our first rental property in Southampton since 2002. Since then they have looked after our interest, with regular updates on tenants, the condition of the property and keeping us informed of current and new legislation which we have to comply with as a landlord. In view of the service we had received on or first property we had no hesitation in asking the Home Agency to act as our agents when we acquired a second property in 2010. We would have no hesitation in recommending The Home Agency to people who are looking for letting agents to look after their property. ”
