A Very Positive Experience

I recently used York Laurent to let my city centre property. From the start, I found Mike really helpful in giving me all the advice and information I needed; he achieved the perfect balance of being friendly and approachable whilst remaining professional throughout. I also appreciated Mike’s honesty and valued his opinion, particularly being as this was my first venture into buy to let territory. I was thrilled when the ‘perfect tenant’ was put forward within just a couple of days of the property being marketed. I also found Judy in the office very helpful and professional – and all the necessary paperwork was processed quickly and with ease. Based on this very positive experience, I wouldn’t hesitate to use York Laurent again!

A Fantastic Experience

I had a fantastic experience renting a property through York Laurent. Viewed a few properties in the Jewellery Quarter and St Pauls Square, and found the perfect property viewing with Luke. Judy in the office helped me through the referencing and handover process and ensured the often stressful moving in period was as easy as possible. The maintenance department helped me with a few issues I experienced during my tenancy, and also ensured the deposit release process was smooth. I would not hesitate to recommend York Laurent to anyone moving to Birmingham City Centre, and if I was to move back, they would be my first choice Letting Agent. Thank you all at York Laurent for making my tenancy as smooth and enjoyable as possible!

Customer Service Was Great

My partner and I greatly appreciate how quickly any issues with our rental property were dealt with. The customer service was great and emails were responded to promptly. The team at York Laurent have left such a good impression that when moving flats we made sure to stay with the letting agency.

Couldn’t Recommend Them Enough

Me and my boyfriend viewed properties with a number of agents in the city centre and York Laurent provided by far the best service. Mike showed us round a property that hadn’t yet gone on the market and we LOVED it. It was such a relief having seen some appalling apartments with the likes of Accord and a couple of others. Judy sorted out our contracts, move in date, inventory clerk etc and she has been absolutely fantastic. Always very prompt to reply and keep us updated. Since moving in we haven’t really had any issues but Judy and the York Laurent team have been very quick to respond to any questions we have had. Couldn’t recommend them enough. Plus, they have two lovely offices in the city centre which makes them easy to visit and keep in touch with.

The Best Letting Agent I Have Used in Birmingham

York Laurent are without doubt the best letting agent I have used in Birmingham. Over the years I have used a number of different estate agents, but found York Laurent to be the best. Very happy with the professional service.

Service Provided Was Superb

I used York Laurent to sell my apartment in the Jewellery Quarter a few years ago and the service provided by Luke at the time was superb throughout the whole process. I have recently used York Laurent again to help find me a rental property in the city and once again I cannot fault the service. Will recommend and use again.

Very Professional Throughout the Process

I got a apartment on rent from them. They were very professional throughout the process. I did not face any challenge because of the lockdown.

I would like to specially mention about Ava who although was working on reduced hours but was very responsive and very swift on all my queries. I so wish that I get professional people like you on all my other interaction.

How Can You Best Present Your Residential Property
For The Best Letting Results?

First impressions are incredibly important - and the presentation of your rental property is key to finding a high-calibre tenant quickly and securing the best possible rent.

Below we've summarised our two tips to prepare your residential property for rent:

Decorative Condition -

Consider the decorative condition of your property  (inside and outside)  Although it may not be top of your list, spending money on decoration, repairs and cleaning ahead of listing your property to let can significantly improve its market attraction, interest from tenants and rental value.

Neat and Tidy -

Your letting agent will need to video and photograph your property for its online rental listing.  The quality of these visuals leave will determine the success of your listing. Take some time to ensure the property is neat, tidy and well-presented before these visuals are captured.


A well-presented property helps prospective tenants to visualise your space as their own - which will significantly affect your property's ability to let.
