Stanley & Partners


Stanley & Partners are keen to be helpful and provide a good service to our tenants from your initial enquiry, viewings and then during the tenancy. We are happy to explain and answer any questions you may have to ensure the letting process goes smoothly.  We understand that finding and moving homes can be a stressful time – We are here to help you find a property you will be happy in.

Prospective tenants will usually be accompanied  to view suitable properties by one of our professional negotiators. They are then carefully interviewed and references taken up. We are sorry but we do not generally let to Students, people who are in receipt of housing benefit or to large groups of sharers. The type of references we are looking to take up include;

  • Employers references
  • Right to rent Status
  • Bank Statements
  • Previous Landlords Reference
  • Previous Letting Agents Reference
  • Character references
  • County court judgement search
  • Credit rating search
  • Bankruptcy and IVA searches
  • Social medial and other online profiles.

We are looking to show to our landlords that tenants have a stable and regular income and can afford to pay the rent.

We are members of NALS - National Approved letting Scheme and Safe Agent scheme.
