Well-Deserved Praise for Residential Lettings Team

Sue Maaz, Residential Lettings, Sheldon Bosley KnightWe are always delighted when we receive positive feedback from our customers and were especially pleased when we heard from one of our long standing landlord clients.

The Sheldon Bosley Knight office in Shipston have been acting as the managing agent for this client since 1997 when the site was originally purchased and a number of flats were marketed for rental.

Our client is a busy builder/developer and over the past 22 years Sue Maaz and her team have managed the properties, dealing with the various tenants, inbound and outbound, as well as periodic refurbishments.

Sue and her team always take pride in the service they provide and it was a pleasure to receive the following note from our client:

“As one of your landlords I have dealt with your Shipston Office since 1997 when we purchased the above site. 

Your staff have always given a good service, but over recent years it has got even better. Whenever I speak to one of the team I always express my appreciation for all they do. But I am writing this to let you know how very pleased we are.

Due to too many commitments elsewhere over the past few years, I have not been as involved as I would like to have been, as a result I just leave everything to the team to deal with, this is a great help to me – and they make the right decisions.

Recently I met with Sue Maaz at Flat 3. I understand that she has been the main coordinator of the refurbishment, which looks very crisp and bright and well thought out. I am very grateful, as I know being a builder/developer, that even a small refurbishment takes a lot of organising.”

Is Your Letting Agent Regulated?

Lettings Sheldon Bosley Knight

Lettings Sheldon Bosley KnightWith effect from 1st April 2019 all letting agents must be in a regulated Client Money Protection (CMP) scheme.

We at Sheldon Bosley Knight have been regulated and in a CMP for many years via the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) who require us to hold out the highest standards when it comes to handling your money. In fact, we are delighted to say that one of our companies was awarded a rating of “Outstanding” in 2017.

From 1st April 2019 all agents must:

  • Belong to a Government approved CMP scheme
  • Display a certificate confirming this
  • Provide clients with the name and address of the scheme of which they are a member

This is not new to us so we do not need to make any changes, although there are many in our industry who will have to catch up. However, if you have any questions please contact us and we will be happy to advise you.

As another year draws to a close….

Sheldon Bosley Knight Shipston on Stour

Sheldon Bosley Knight Shipston on Stour Welcome to the first of our regular updates, this one focusing on our Shipston branch, designed to give you an insight into the daily life of SBK, local events, property market updates and all things which may be of interest to anyone buying or selling, whether you are a landlord, tenant, or just interested in property full stop!

As we come to the end of a very successful year at SBK we have been reflecting on the market which has kept us all very busy.  We have dealt with many different types of property including land, country properties, houses, apartments and town houses.  In fact we can deal with virtually any type of property.

With our local knowledge we are well placed to help those new to the town with all the information they require about Shipston and feel proud to be part of such a vibrant community.

Feel free to call in and discuss any of your property issues with our friendly team.

SBK Supporting the Community

SBK Coconut Shy Shipston Victorian EveningDid you know, SBK support many community activities in the town including the recent Victorian Christmas Market held on Friday 1st December.  Once again we ran a Coconut Shy which proved a huge success last year and this year didn’t disappoint either. People of all ages were game for a go and we raised over £100 for the Rotary charity.

We also sponsored the Shipston Town Band Christmas Concert, another annual event that helps to get us all into the spirit of Christmas with some wonderful Yuletide music, carols and readings. The band are a real asset to Shipston.

Our Annual Charity Quiz was another roaring success and this year we supported the Birmingham Children’s Hospital. The quiz theme was ‘Back to School’ and we raised a fantastic £2,244! We would like to thank all the local businesses who joined in and supported the event.

Goodies on Completion

We are very fortunate in Shipston to have many wonderful individual privately owned shops who support each other. Richard Harvey and Taste of the Country generously donate gifts to buyers on completion of sales and are wonderful shops to visit.

Thinking of moving?

Cottage For Sale We would be delighted to visit your property to advise on value.  If you are considering selling early in the New Year now is a good time to find out what your property is worth and what we can do to help you move on.

You may not know that we can offer the following services too:

  • Surveying
