Your property is safe with Bacon and Company
You’re in safe hands. It’s a familiar phrase, and with Bacon and Company it’s the perfect summary of our property lettings service.
At Bacon and Company you’re guaranteed personal attention from our specialist rental professionals. With a wealth of experience in West Sussex and a commitment to providing first-rate professional advice, our flexible approach to lettings can help with as much or as little as you need – from introduction-only to a full management package.
Bacon and Company provides accurate tenancy checks, expert property assessments, fuss-free maintenance and no hidden charges. We can arrange your EPC (Energy Performance Certificate), gas and electrical inspections, and also organise comprehensive insurance policies for the tenant and landlord – to cover contents or rent protection.
It is worth mentioning that our staff don’t work on commission, so you can be assured that we genuinely want to find the best tenant for your property. We believe our combination of services provides you with the ultimate convenience and a stress-free experience.
So whether you wish to arrange a valuation or just have a chat about the rental market in general, please feel free to call us. We’re always happy to offer our advice.
Professional lettings advice
Our advice is professional, honest and always up-to-date. Bacon and Company is affiliated to ARLA (the Association of Residential Letting Agents) and part of the NFOPP (National Federation of Property Professionals), which helps to underline our credentials. We regularly train our lettings team on changes in legislation by attending local and national conference events, and individual members of staff attend frequent courses specialising in specific fields within the rental industry.
Full property management
Do you live outside the West Sussex area or abroad? Or would you simply prefer your letting agent to take full control over managing your rental property? If so, our experienced team can provide a comprehensive property management service, which means we are able to look after all aspects of the rental and deal with maintenance issues as soon as they occur.
We have an established panel of reputable local traders and approved contractors who we’ll liaise with, on your behalf, to negotiate preferential rates. Needless to say, we never authorise any work without your agreement.
Weekly local advertising
Although we market all of our properties to let extensively online we still believe it’s important to maintain high-profile weekly advertising. Bacon and Company advertises every week in local newspapers and other local publications to guarantee the best local exposure.
Detailed tenancy checks
We take every precaution to get the right tenant for you and your rental property, so we undertake thorough background and financial checks of all prospective tenants. If appropriate we will also reference a guarantor to safeguard your rental income to the best of our ability, to provide you with peace of mind.
From 1 February 2016 all private landlords letting property in England are required to check the immigration status – or right to rent – of prospective tenants before agreeing to establish a new tenancy. Failure to do so could result in penalties of up to £3000. Bacon and Company will carry out these checks on your behalf and ensure follow-up checks are made.
Your opinion counts
Bacon and Company has spent decades building a great reputation as leading letting agents in Worthing, Lancing and beyond. That’s why we’re always keen to hear if we are doing a good job – or if we need to make any improvements. Although we honestly believe we have excellent lettings staff who are committed to helping make your rental experience as stress-free as possible, we value feedback from all of our clients. This helps us to understand what our clients want and how we can keep ahead of the competition by quickly adapting to the needs of the lettings market.
