What Our Clients Say
I have just signed another 2-year lease with Elliot Leigh under their guaranteed rent scheme. As an overseas landlord, it is comforting to know my property is in good hands. The rent is always paid on time, and I have had very prompt if not immediate responses to my emails
Have been with Elliot Leigh for good 7 years and given them at least 3 of my properties. I am planning to give them all my property to run when it’s available. I find them very professional always paid rent on time. Very friendly staff Steve & Rahena. Yes, I would recommend to all. Thanks
Mr F Ahmed
The staff at Roman Road are excellent. When issues have arisen they have dealt with it promptly. After the first tenant left the staff did a good job of decorating – probably better than ours! As promised, the payments have been regular and on time. Thank you
