Set up in 1998 by Charlotte's father Paul Cox, Belvoir Lettings Melton Mowbray and Bingham cover the areas of LE13, LE14, NG13 and NG14. Paul is now retired and spends most of his time in Crete with his wife Liz. Charlotte says: "Being part of a franchise offers me the opportunity to run the business as a small local company, along with the support and training offered by a national group. This gives me the confidence that we are up to speed with current legislation and we can learn from other offices throughout the UK. It also gives me access to good insurance products that are tailored to Belvoir's requirements making sure the landlord is well protected.
