We are what we repeatedly do,
Excellence therefore is not an act but a habit
Aristotle, Greek philosopher,(384BC – 322BC)
Over the years we have often been asked why we did not sell properties as well. After very careful consideration we entered the sales market a year or so ago and although until now we have not promoted this aspect of our business we are pleased to now be considered worthy of instruction on all types of residential property and we base this purely on our past record of impeccable client and customer service
The firm has always been at the forefront and particularly strong and respected in the local lettings market and provide a high quality professional service whilst specialising in residential property purchases for the investment market.
Our dedicated team are on hand to advise on all aspects of residential letting, from locating suitable property to purchase, consultation on initial property refurbishment where and when required right through to sourcing suitable tenants and then onto ongoing management.
Our aim is to ensure that all eventualities are covered before a Tenant commences occupation thereby minimising the risk of any problems occurring throughout the Tenancy.
Being specialists in the field of “Buy to Let for Investment” we are extremely experienced in sourcing and securing suitable investment properties on behalf of clients. In essence, we know what to buy to obtain the best returns on capital investment but perhaps more importantly we know what not to buy!

It is the considered opinion of TempleWicks that the letting and management of residential accommodation is sufficiently complex to warrant instructing a specialist property management company in order to ensure that your home or investment is secure and, subject to the necessary terms of the relevant tenancy agreement and government legislation, vacant when desired.
It is probable that your property is your largest investment;it follows that any arrangement made for the same must be co-ordinated to ensure that it is properly cared for.
