Open Longer Hours
We work hard for our customers
and strive to offer
convenient appointment times after
work and at weekends. Our offices
are open 9am-7pm during the week
with viewings until 8pm and
10am – 5pm on Saturdays.
We focus exclusively on what we
know best: letting and property
management. Last year we helped
over 2,000 tenants move home
and collected more than £20m in
rent on behalf of our landlords.
Our Fees are Fair
We are one of the few agents to
collect our fees on a monthly basis
even on a let only instruction.
By not taking our whole fee upfront,
this means our landlords enjoy a
much steadier cash flow over the
period of the tenancy.
Thorough Tenant Screening
We subject all of our applicants to
a thorough background checking
process. We collect written
references, payslips and bank
statements, obtain a credit score
and check for county court
judgments and bankruptcy
We Deliver Great Tenants in Record Time
Our average void period between
tenancies is only 4 days –
the industry average is 30 days according to the Q2 2009 ARLA report.
Edmund Cude was established in
1818 and is one of the oldest
names in the London property
business. Our core values of trust
and reliability are as important to us
today as they were 190 years ago.
Dedicated Property Management Team
Our ARLA trained team of property
managers are experts in assessing
inbound maintenance issues and
quickly dispatching carefully
screened contractors. They will
also take charge of organising gas
and electricity safety tests as
necessary throughout the year.
We even have two in-house
handymen who can tackle routine
maintenances tasks at a fraction of
the cost of specialist contractors
We employ a professional in-house
photographer who not only
photographs our properties, but
also the sights and characters
that typify the surrounding areas
so that our tenants have a real
flavour of their local area. We
also send out hundreds of SMS
and email matches to our database
of tenants on a daily basis.
Strict Codes of Practice
Our commitment to offering the
highest level of customer service is
demonstrated by our long standing
members of the industry regulatory
body for letting agents (ARLA).
We are also members of the
Property Ombudsman for Lettings
and licensed under the Tenancy
