Around 1,000 landlords a year choose Temples.
Why?   Because we know what we’re talking about.
We have over a decade of experience serving thousands of landlords and tenants.
But what makes us special is not simply what we do.
It’s who we are and the way we do it.

At Temples, we don’t just take on your property and then let things happen. We make things happen.
Whether you’re a landlord or a tenant, we can guide you every step of the way.

We’re proud to be:
independent specialists  |  trusted advisors  |  proactive in our approach
able to offer a wide range of services  |  fast, free, accurate valuations
 
We know how to market your property 
We're an established local business with attractive offices in prominent locations in Chester, Crewe, Nantwich and Northwich. But we don’t wait for tenants to walk through the door. Once you’ve instructed us to market your property, we’ll waste no time preparing good quality photographs and detailed, accurate descriptions. At all times we carry a database of prospective tenants (many of whom have signed up for property notifications through this website) and we get in touch if we feel your property will be suitable.

In addition, your property will feature on this website and on the key property portals including:
Rightmove and Find-A-Property, Zoopla, Google, Prime Location and many others.  And we have close links with some of the biggest firms in the area, supporting them with relocating staff to live and work here.
We find the right tenant, quickly 
We understand the property may be your nest egg for the future, so it’s really important you find good tenants who will care for it like you do. That’s why our prospective tenants undergo a detailed assessment including in-house credit and reference checking. We work with both you and your tenants to ensure everyone understands their obligations from the outset. That way, there are no surprises for either party further down the line.
We’re trusted advisors 
With Temples you get more than a simple lettings service. That’s why many landlords have worked with us for many years. Indeed, several tenants who have gone on to become landlords have chosen to work with Temples because they know how proactive, fair and thorough we are.
We know how to manage your property 
Being a good landlord isn’t as easy as it sounds. Our full management service can make life easier and ensure you understand and fulfil your legal obligations.  Letting is the core of our business, it’s what we do best – unlike estate agents it’s not an add-on to our other services.  Our team is highly skilled so, whether you’re a landlord or a tenant, you can rely on us to avoid common pitfalls.

Testimonials
Independent reviews listed on  
 Working with Simon it was a great experience from day 1 when I viewed the property.
This was the first time that renting and moving was an easy and all I had to think was to bring my luggage and settle in and just feel home.
Simon is very professional and always taking the extra mile to help the tenants. I lived in another country for some months and Simon always helped me during this time, keeping me informed on the property and ensuring everything was fine.
I knew that he would help with everything possible in the second I was reaching out to him.
Thank you Simon again for making a difference. It was great meeting you and working with you.

 All the team at Temples are excellent and offer a truly outstanding service from start to finish.
A special mention for Richard who has a very calm and positive approach in dealing with any property issues that a landlord may face.
Also a mention to Emma who is extremely helpful and professional in her dealings between tenants and landlords.

I would highly recommend this company above all other letting agents.

 I have had a rented property for over 2 years, with the initial letting through Bridgfords. Felicity rang me a few times generally close to tenancy renewal times to check if I wanted to consider Temples. When the notice of termination from the tenants came, I thought let's contact Felicity. I must say Temples, Felicity, Emma and Becca have all provided an excellent service right up to the day of tenancy renewal. I am very pleased at the speed to achieve the goal and regular contact made by the team. I will use the service again for sure.

 Great service from Temples. Daniel showed us round the houses and was friendly and helpful. Emma was professional, helpful and quick to respond to questions we had regarding renting our new home. The whole process with Temples was overall a good experience.
