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.

A Landlord of the Northwich office  - submitted on 30 Mar (4 weeks ago)
 I very quickly sold my property that was sold as an investment with a sitting tenant. Dan was very helpful in assisting me with the questions and providing any information that I could not provide to the buyer.

 Overall Temples looked after my property for over 3.5 years and a quick sale certainly reflected that they looked after the property.

Thank you!
