Welcome to Churchwood Stanley, the independent residential property agent that puts you and your needs at the heart of everything that we do.

Our specialist letting team professionally let and manage properties around North Colchester, the Tendring Peninsular from Manningtree to Harwich, Frinton and Walton to Clacton-on-Sea and all the areas and villages in between.

For a comprehensive breakdown of everything that we do, please browse through to the landlord guide and services page.

We take the time to get to know exactly what our landlords need and expect. We give a realistic picture of the market and the potential your property can offer to discerning tenants. Our professional property details and advertising always encourages a prompt response and our rental properties attract quality tenants quickly, it is standard practice to be arranging visits immediately after the property launches to the open market and within a matter of days the property has successfully let.

Well-presented and maintained properties attract quality tenants and our management service is centred on, looking after the property and keeping up standards throughout the tenancy. One of the most important parts of our job is finding the right profile of tenant for the right property in the first place. This is the basis of a well maintained and managed tenancy and results in a happy and long term tenancy for all parties concerned.

Whether you are a new investor, an accidental landlord or you are already an established and experienced landlord, you will benefit immediately from the uncompromising standards of our work ensuring that a minefield of regulation and compliance is dealt with transparently and efficiently. Regulation is continually tightening and changing more than ever before, it makes sense to speak to those in the know who will look after your interests. It is extremely time consuming keeping up to date with legislation and we continually monitor property requirements and landlords’ legal obligations to ensure compliance and protect your interests.

All potential new tenants are initially screened and pre-approved by Tracy Churchwood MARLA(Inv) before being professionally referenced and credit checked by a specialist company. Once the tenancy is under management our Property Manager, Rachael Billman MARLA(Inv) will be the main contact and face that the tenants see on a regular basis, she is the person that carries out site inspections and manages the ongoing maintenance issues.

We will inform you of anything that needs attention and obtain quotes for any works required for your approval. We have an excellent and trusted team of independent contractors that we have used for many years to call upon for all maintenance, gas and electrical checks and anything else that is required on a daily basis and we manage everything in house and are very much hands on.

We are one of the very few management agents that pay our landlords their rental income on the same day that it is received in our clients account. We turn around rent payments’ on time.

It is our personal touch of treating every property like our own which continues to see more and more landlords subscribe to our managed service.

We are fully compliant and adhere to -

  • Client Money Protection regulations
  • Property Ombudsman Services
  • Anti-money-laundering regulations
  • the Consumer Rights Act
  • The Housing Act and new Tenants Fees Act
  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • Energy Performance Regulations and so much more.

There is an enormous amount of stringent legislation in place in respect of Landlords, Tenants and Property. Despite this, letting agents are still officially "un-regulated" at the moment, although hopefully this is about to change in 2020. However many responsible agents like ourselves elected to be professionally qualified and licensed members of the self-regulatory bodies ARLA|Propertymark (Association of Regulated Letting Agents) UKALA (UK Association of Letting Agents) SafeAgent and other highly compliant legitimate organizations to give you peace of mind and for us to provide an accountable, high level of service that you will want to recommend.

So if you’re looking for an agent that is truly working for your best interests, that has a track record of success and has the skill and motivation to keep your time precious and your investment protected, then we are here ready and waiting to help YOU…
