Belvoir have provided advice on our properties when required and their administration is excellent." (Landlord)


"Now that all the work at 82 is completed I just wanted to thank you for all your help with the project.
Without the quality of trades that you were able to recommend and your meticulous 'military style' coordination I am sure I would not have had such great end result.
It has been transformed into a great place for someone to live again many thanks and I'm sure we'll catch up again in the future."

"Belvoir Colchester have looked after our properties over the last 14 years – their service has been excellent. They understand the importance of a good working relationship between themselves and both the tenant and landlord. Any problems are quickly resolved. They take responsibility for managing the contract. My record for staying with them speaks for itself."


"We decided to move our business to Belvoir when we encountered difficulties with our previous agent who was just not good enough. Frankly we couldn't be more pleased with our decision. If you are considering using an agent we would definitely recommend Belvoir. Peace of mind that your property is being managed appropriately is key along with effective communication; and we have this with Belvoir."


"Belvoir has a great team, plus qualified tradesman who can handle problems within rental properties, speedily, effciently and competitively, enabling my peace of mind."

"Belvoir Colchester have managed three of my properties for several years now and, during that time, have given every satisfaction. Whenever any problems have arisen with tenants or the properties themselves they have been pursued with tenacity to successful outcomes.

"I have been very pleased with all aspects of the services provided by Belvoir and would have no hesitation in recommending them to prospective landlords."

"Belvoir have always done an excellent job for us in managing our property”. Richard (Landlord)

"Just writing to say thanks for all your care and attention over the years of doing business with Belvoir.  It's reassuring to know someone is taking care of the entire letting process and I don't have to involve myself in it - that'[s so difficult to do when you don't actually live in the area.  Rent is paid on time, correspondence is always answered quickly and those things are just as important as knowing that you are keeping an eye on the property and making sure the tenants are behaving responsibly.  So thanks to you and all the staff - I really appreciate your work."


"I would highly recommend Belvoir to any prospective landlord.  I have been a landlord for over 25 years and over that time built up my portfolio.  I have used a number of letting agents over the years for letting and managing properties and Belvoir are the best I have come across.  Every effort is made to let properties as quickly as possible, thus keeping vacant periods to the minimum, and indeed they let my last property within a couple of days and tenants had taken up residence within two weeks.  Rent is passed on to me often within a day of them receiving it, in my opinion they provide an excellent service all round, doing their best to treat both tenants and landlords fairly.


‘"Having decided to hold onto our apartment in Colchester. However as we live in France we needed a responsive and reliable local agent who understood the rental market and who could help us find a suitable tenant. We made contact with Belvoir, Richard came and took details, put the apartment on the internet and found us someone. All this was done within the space of a few days.  And the lady moved in within 10 days of viewing, after the necessary credit checks were carried out – again through Belvoir. We found Belvoir to offer excellent advice and to be helpful and thoroughly professional throughout."   


"The original agent who managed my property was useless and difficult to deal with and get payment for rent on time.  We changed to Belvoir and what a difference in property management styles. Belvoir are efficient, have the interest of the owner at heart, the rental payment is never late and they handle difficult tenants superbly and firmly. I have recommended Belvoir to friends who are letting properties as I know Belvoir are easy to communicate with and do a wonderful job be it in arranging repairs or liaising between the tenant and the owner."


"Just a short note to say a big thank you for all your hardwork over the years looking after my cottage.  It has always been enjoyable.  Thanks again and please be aware that if I ever did need your services again I would not hesitate to contact you and your team."


"Just to confirm our telephone conversation today regarding taking my property off the market, as I require to move back into the premises.  I would like to thank you and your colleagues for your excellent service and would not hesitate to employ your services again in the future; if and when necessary"


"My partner and I recently moved home with Belvoir and their service so far has been excellent, I would highly recommend them.  It is a breath of fresh air to have emails dealt with quickly and efficiently. I had to wait over 2 weeks for a reply from my old letting agent but now most are responded to same day!  Check-in was very thorough, any problems with the property are dealt with quickly and reliably.  It is very reassuring to know that we are well looked after.  The letting and property maintenance teams are all very friendly and their service offers real value for money" (Tenant)


"Belvoir Colchester have managed my properties for a number of years now. I would not hesitate to recommend them - they continue to  provide a superb service in all ways - letting properties quickly to well vetted tenants, managing maintenance effectively with excellent competetive contractors and passing on rental income extremely efficiently. Julie Davis deserves a special mention - her professionalism and problem solving skills ensure that Belvoir is, in my opinion, the top letting agent in Colchester. "


"Belvoir  have provide me with peace of mind knowing my property lets are being treated as they would there own. Belvoir have provided first class service year after year with there full management service. Belvoir and the local team always make sure the tenants are happy and being a landlord any problems are dealt with straight away first time every time."


"I have been renting out a property in Wivenhoe for about 4 years now on a full management basis with Belvoir.  I have been more than pleased with the professional way they found and vetted a tenant, achieved a fair rent and sorted out the insurance needed for the property. They regularly inspect the property and send photos of work that needs to be done. They have an excellent team of tradesmen who expedite the work in good time. I have a happy tenant!"

I was a tenant with Belvoir Colchester for more than 5 years prior to purchasing a property. When I moved abroad temporarily, I had no hesitation in using them to manage my property whilst overseas. Consent given to use this comment for marketing purposes.

In January 2013, we had a major flood. Living overseas, "on the ground" help was crucial to expedite the repairs. Stacey Wright worked tirelessly to deal with the issues and kept us fully updated throughout until the new tenant moved in Consent given to use this comment for marketing purposes
