Growing lettings business goes national

Growing North East lettings agency KIS Lettings are going national as the business expands into the South East.

Newly-opened premises in Welwyn Garden City are the KIS’s fourth – and the first outside of their native North East, where the company already manages properties for over 700 landlords from branches in Sunderland, South Shields and North Shields.
Headed by married couple Kevin and Petra Harris, KIS Lettings Welwyn will offer KIS’ unique service -with an emphasis on cutting-edge technology and original thinking – to southern landlords for the first time.

Unlike traditional lettings agents KIS do not ask tenants for a deposit, with renters instead asked to nominate a family member or friend to guantantee their rent, making it easier for landlords to find good tenants by reducing the costs of moving in to properties, while also providing home essentials them with complete protection and peace of mind.

The efficiency delivered by KIS’ pioneering use of software also allows it to offer a high quality service to tenants and landlords alike for a fraction of the fees charged by competitors – while also allowing landlords to inspect their accounts online 24 hours a day 7 days per week.
Every new KIS tenant also gets a free Home Move Box of and cleaning products as soon as they move in, helping them feel at home as fast as possible.

KIS Managing Director and founder Ajay Jagota said: “KIS Lettings is a real success story for the North East where our innovative approach has proved a real hit with landlords and tenants alike.

“It’s really exciting for us to be expanding our business into other parts of the country with Kevin And Petra joining our team and taking our revolutionary approach to the rest of the UK– not to mention a real sign that innovative businesses focussed on offering a first class service to their customers can thrive even in tough times like these.”

Kevin Harris added: “We’ve seen firsthand how many South East landlords are crying out for an efficient, effective and transparent lettings agency they can really trust – especially the so-called ‘accidental landlords’ who have become property entrepreneurs as a result of the economic downturn rather than by design, and we think the KIS approach offers them that.

“With our second child due later this year, this really is an exciting time for our family and our business, and we can’t wait to get started offering the world class service to the landlords of Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield that KIS has offered the North East.”
