Finding the best tenants
Jacksons have been letting properties across South London for over 20 years and can be relied on to provide a professional service in compliance with all relevant legislation associated with the lettings process.
We set ourselves the highest standards by being members of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA Propertymark) and The Property Ombudsman Scheme (TPO), while operating to codes of practice set out by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Our aim is to provide you with the stability and security that you would expect from South London’s leading independent estate agent.
At Jacksons, a key focus of ours is to minimise void periods and to ensure there are no arrears. Over the past year, our landlords have experienced an average void period of just under 1% and only 1% of our landlords experienced rent arrears (against a national average of 36% according to the National Landlords Association).
We like to work in partnership with our landlords. Unlike most other agents, we take our fees monthly throughout the duration of the tenancy. This is one of the reasons we are quite particular about the quality of the tenant we will introduce.
We understand that your requirements as a landlord are as individual as the home you are letting, whether you have one investment property or a large portfolio. Our staff have extensive knowledge of the local market and the type of tenant most frequently drawn to the area. This experience enables us to find the most suitable tenant at the best price.
When marketing your property:
- We’ll create a bespoke marketing campaign.
- We’ll present your property at its absolute best, with professional photography, floorplans and carefully worded brochure text.
- We will then spend hours on the telephone to our applicants, alerting them to your property as soon as it becomes available and encouraging them to view. We have thousands of registered applicants actively looking for property in the local area, as well as the many enquiries we receive through our website.
Once a suitable tenant has been found and you are happy to accept them, we will then work quickly, obtaining references and completing all the paperwork, to make sure the move-in happens smoothly.
Our Corporate Lettings and International Relocation team works with a broad range of corporate tenants, from lawyers, bankers, company directors and diplomats to graduates. As such, we have access to a fantastic pool of reliable tenants. Read more about Corporate Lettings.
As a Jacksons landlord we offer you a variety of management services. Whether you wish to be involved in every step of the lettings process or would like us to take care of everything for you, our Property Management team can create a bespoke service accordingly.

If you are considering letting your property for less than six months - whilst away on business, on an extended holiday or between longer term tenancies - then Jacksons specialist Short Let team can assist. Here you can read more about Short Lets.
We aim to make our fees transparent so that everyone knows where they stand when it comes to costs.
We are regulated members of ARLA Propertymark and RICS, which means that any monies we hold on a landlord’s behalf is insured by these regulatory bodies.
