My experience with Etheridge Estates, whilst still extremely positive, is of a very different nature as I already had long standing tenants in my property which I managed myself. About ten months ago the tenants began to have problems paying the rent and in May this year I decided to let Etheridge Estates manage this for me.
We are now in the process of gaining possession via the courts and Elaine has advised me throughout this very arduous and protracted process. She has gained legal advice and drafted appropriate documents when needed and dealt with all the paperwork and served notices in the correct manner and kept me up to date with everything. More importantly to me, she has dealt with my tenants directly and this has taken away much of the stress and upset which would have been directed at me and helped me cope throughout the whole process.

‘My partner and I both have rental properties and our experience with Etheridge Estates has been very positive.
My partner required tenants in a new rental property and we engaged Etheridge Estates to find tenants for us. The tenants were found within a few days. They drew up the tenancy agreement, agreed the terms and conditions and rent with the tenants and they moved in without either of us having to do anything other than set up a bank account for the rental income. They have inspected the property when requested and are now due to negotiate another tenancy agreement with the tenants for a longer term let on our behalf.
EE have also provided us property maintenance and gas certificates which has been prompt, good quality and value for money.
I cannot fault their service and would highly recommend them to any landlord, particularly if you are a first time property owner. They are extremely good value for money’.

In the modern world it’s refreshing to find a business that is forward thinking yet sets it foundations firmly on old traditional values – trust, honesty, integrity and value for money. I have used Etheridge Estates for 3yrs. Why? well that’s a no brainer to me. As a landlord with multiple properties I cannot afford the time to continually shop around for three quotes every time I need a tradesman. Having the luxury of being able to approach an organisation that operates a one stop shop, at a great price with quality workmanship makes perfect sense to me. I pick up the phone, give the property address and the tenants contact details then forget all about that issue and move on to the next!

We currently have 2 properties in Gateshead let through Etheridge Estates. Elaine Darling heads the team and we always find her very efficient and approachable. As we do not live near it is important, we have somebody we trust. Elaine is currently organising the letting of another property for us in North Yorkshire.

Etheridge Estates currently manage 10 properties from my portfolio and we are currently in the process of moving all of my properties across to them. They are keen, professional and offer a fantastic service at a fantastic price. Something which may seem like a big issue to me as a landlord is like water off a ducks back to these guys. They are definitely worth moving to and I can’t recommend them enough. Keep up the good work.

I would highly recommend Etheridge Estates as a property management company- they provided a swift, stress free transition over from a previous company whilst offering competitive management rates!
