Letting Properties

Lake District Estates owns and manages an extensive portfolio of approximately 100 properties for residential letting purposes. The majority of our properties are located in the South Lakeland area of Kendal, Windermere and Ambleside but we also cover areas further afield such as Ravenglass, Pooley Bridge and Glenridding. Our properties range from traditional Lakeland cottages to modern apartment conversions of large historic buildings. Properties are let unfurnished and benefit from a good standard of fixtures, fittings and decoration.

We have our own property maintenance team with specialist craftsmen who are able to refurbish properties to a high standard and run the day-to-day maintenance operations required to maintain the standards for letting properties. We provide a complete service for private and commercial letting clients.

Properties are let on Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) Agreements for a six month period after which they continue as a Periodic Tenancy on a rolling monthly basis. Sample tenancy agreements are available, for inspection by prospective tenants.

No Extra Charges

We try to make our letting procedure as simple and as unencumbered as possible since we believe it is traumatic enough moving home! We are therefore pleased to advise that we do not, unlike many other letting agents, heap additional costs onto prospective tenants (such as holding fees, administration fees, reference application fees, or tenancy set up fees).

Reference Procedure

We operate a strict reference system for new tenants. These include an Employer, Bank, Character and Landlord's References.


A deposit is also charged (normally equivalent to the rental amount) which will be refunded in full at the end of the tenancy provided there are no rent arrears and the property is left in good condition. In compliance with the Housing Act 2004, tenants' deposits are held under a 'custodial' scheme run by the Deposit Protection Scheme (www.depositprotection.com). At the end of the tenancy, if the landlord (LDE) and the tenant agree how the deposit should be allocated, they will inform the DPS who refund the money as agreed. Further details on this scheme can be provided upon request.

Property Maintenance

Lake District Estates employs its own property maintenance team including joiners, builders and painters/decorators to maintain our extensive property portfolio. We also have a contact list of trusted tradespeople we can call upon at short notice if necessary. All properties are checked prior to letting and any deficiencies are dealt with promptly by our team.
