LINLEY & Simpson has handed the thriving residential lettings market in Leeds city centre a new vote of confidence - by giving its Swinegate office a major makeover.

The facelift comes as demand for quality properties in and around the city

New-look City Centre Office

Leeds city centre branch manager Gaynor Barratt said the improvements heralded the start of an exciting new era for the office.

"We have given the branch a modern and striking new look - but the same high levels of customer service remain," she said.

"Since launching in the city centre five years ago, we have seen a year-on-year increase in the number of lets achieved.

"The market remains very strong and the investment we have made in revamping the office, harnessing the latest technology, and taking on extra staff members is a clear signal of our confidence in its future."

"The appeal of letting over buying continues to gather pace, and the attraction of living in Leeds - which tops so many polls for being the UK-s best city - shows no signs of abating. It's a winning formula for so many."

The lure of 'the Leeds experience' is shared by many tenants - including the regular influx of graduates taking their first step on the career ladder, and other young professionals and relocating businessmen and women.

Fewer empty properties are coming to market in the city centre as some tenants are staying longer. However, Linley & Simpson boasts the biggest market share of available properties in the city centre, ensuring a choice of homes for tenants.

However, as the peak summer time approaches, this is likely to change as demand threatens to outstrip supply in some key developments - especially with continuing difficulties in obtaining a mortgage.

The office adds an extra dimension for both clients and landlords by linking in to a shared database across the Linley & Simpson network. Currently, it hosts a record 2,000 potential tenants awaiting properties.

As part of its ongoing programme of improvements to customers, the relaunch of the Leeds city centre office coincides with the unveiling of Linley & Simpson's new look website which customers can access via a touch-screen.

If you are a landlord with properties to rent, or a tenant wanting a first-hand insight into homes that are available to let, then why not see the new-look office and call by for a coffee and meet the team.

Linley & Simpson-s office at 16 Swinegate, Leeds, LS1 4AG can be found opposite the Malmaison Hotel. Telephone 0113 246 9295. Email city@linleyandsimpson.co.uk
