Competitive fees

Our fees are payable only when a suitable tenant is found and, if managed, on receipt of the monthly rent. This means that we only get paid for results. Our fees are highly competitive and we score much higher in independent client satisfaction surveys than more expensive agents.

Property management

We manage hundreds of properties for clients in and around Durham. Our fully managed service gives you the peace of mind that your property is being taken care of and all your legal obligations are being met. Many corporate clients prefer properties to be agent-managed as it gives them a single point of contact. All of our lettings staff undergo continuous professional training in all aspects of lettings law and practice. We use state of the art technology and accounting software so that you are kept up to date with what goes on with your property during a tenancy. You will have access to a personal e property file where you can stay up to date with the tenancy, view rent statements and reviewing details such as when gas safety certificates are due.

Corporate tenants

We have strong relationships with relocation companies as well as the major employers within the region. We proactively contact them when we receive instructions for new properties which we feel may be of interest to their clients. In return, these companies forward the details of new clients and employees on to us when seeking accommodation. Recent clients have included employees from the Armed Forces, Caterpillar and the NHS.

Student lettings

Since the inception of Rise Estate Agents in 2007 the company built a strong reputation for the marketing and management of student accommodation in Durham. Our offices in New Elvet are in the busiest part of the city for student footfall. This coupled with our long term association with student lettings and links with the UK’s largest student property portal Sturents, Rightmove Students and Zoopla make us the ‘go to’ agent for undergraduates and post graduates.

Student property lettings can be an excellent investment. However, this is a very competitive and the management of student properties is undoubtedly more complex than residential tenancies. 

We can take the stress out of being a student landlord for a surprisingly affordable fee, ensuring that you have the peace of mind that your property is being marketed effectively and managed by professionals without denting your bottom line. You can enjoy the financial benefits of being a student landlord without the responsibilities impacting on your lifestyle. We manage multiple student properties on behalf of many landlords.
