Proficiency & Professionalism

After struggling with a few unreliable letting agents over some years, we found Mujeeb Rehman & RPC Lettings over 10 years ago. We transferred our 3 properties to him and have never looked back. We had difficult properties and struggles along the way but were so well supported by Mujeeb and his staff that our journey became manageable. Their proficiency & professionalism was executed in such a personal, prompt and attentive manner that one would be forgiven for thinking one was the only Landlord they were attending to. Unlike other agencies we used, RPC never failed to find tenants within a short space of time. Our rents were paid timeously and all other services were provided efficiently with dedication and care. The fact that staff remain with RPC Lettings year on year is a testament to a happy and well-run company thus providing landlords with continuity and confidence. Other agencies may charge a lower Management fee but in my experience the fees charged by RPC are absolutely justified in respect of their first class service and the reduction of stress for the Landlord. We have no hesitation in recommending this agency above all others.

Proficiency & Professionalism

In Safe Hands

Since RPC Lettings took over as Lettings Agents for my properties I have found them to be completely professional.  The Inspections they carry out are thorough and if jobs need to be done they are carried out as quickly as possible after consultation with the Landlord. If you phone the Office with a query then they deal with it and come back to you with a reply soon afterwards.  They inform you of any new laws regarding Landlords. The staff are always pleasant and helpful. I would recommend them to any new Landlords as I have nothing but praise for them as they are efficient and I know my houses are in safe hands.

In conclusion, I would recommend RPC Letting services to any landlord who requires a professional, prompt and above all friendly service.

Totally Reliable

I have no hesitation in recommending RPC and the team to all landlords as they have looked after me really well for several years. They are totally reliable in paying rent on time and fully understand how to deal with housing beneficiaries. They also go out of their way to assist with finding or vetting suppliers and sourcing new tenants.  Simon Brickman
