Somerset West Letting Agency

Building harmony between landlords and their tenants

About Us


Somerset West Letting Agency is a local, independent firm specialising in Residential Lettings and Property Management. We are a 'not for profit' organisation which is fully focused on the needs of the landlord and their tenant because unlike estate agents, our loyalties are not divided by dealing with property sales and mortgages.

We understand that letting your property, especially for the first time, can be a worrying experience and with this in mind our most important consideration is providing you, the landlord, with the best possible service and the right tenant for your property. We never forget that the property is your most important asset and we can confidently assure you that by instructing us to act as your Letting and Management Agent your asset will be in professional and caring hands.

Our fees are very competitive and may be open to negotiation dependant on the level of service required. We are particularly committed to investment landlords and savings can be made on the smallest of portfolios. See "Our Fees" page for more details.

A Personal Service

We pride ourselves in offering a personal and friendly service, whilst at the same time maintaining a high standard of competence and professionalism.
