Lake District Estates Co. Ltd owns and manages a range of properties for residential letting. The properties are spread around the Lake District Area and locations include, Newby Bridge, Bowness on Windermere, Ambleside, Kendal and Ullswater. Properties range from independent dwellings of a traditional style to more modern purpose designed conversions of large historic buildings in parkland settings.
Properties are let unfurnished, with the benefit of a good standard of kitchen units, redecoration and carpeting. A range of heating systems are provided within the properties. These include storage heaters and recently a policy has been introduced of installing electric showers over the bath and central heating to the properties as they become vacant.
Properties are let on a Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) basis. Sample tenancy agreements are available, for inspection by prospective tenants.
The company operates a strict reference system for new tenants. These include Employer Reference, Bank Reference, Character Reference and Landlord Reference. A deposit is also charged equal to one month's rent which will be refunded in full upon leaving the property providing it is left in a good condition.
Lake District Estates Co. Ltd employs its own property maintenance team including joiners, builders and painters/decorators to maintain the extensive property portfolio. All properties are checked prior to letting and any deficiencies are dealt with promptly by our own staff.
