UK Market Ripe for Professional Letting Agents
With the phenomenal growth in demand for rented property, the UK market is now ripe for specialist and professional residential letting agents to start up new businesses. This continued demand has also been the motivational force behind setting up The Letting People’s new franchise investment opportunity – the first franchised letting agency to be founded in Coventry & Warwickshire!
From the company’s beginnings, the philosophy of this specialist, independent letting agent was to address the main concerns of each client, save the clients’ time, and increase their income, by providing individual and creative property letting solutions.
Founded in 2002, in Leamington Spa, by Anthony and Caroline Kempster, the business steadily grew to become a successful family business with multiple-company efficiency. Now celebrating over 10 years in business, they are looking to share their success with like-minded people with an interest in the property business.
During a year-long feasibility study, Anthony and Caroline worked closely with British Franchise Association (BFA) accredited franchise experts to further develop the business model. This ensures that each new franchise branch will be profitable quickly, and benefit from the professional business plan, marketing strategy, and training programme.
Anthony Kempster said “We decided to franchise The Letting People because we will enjoy supporting and encouraging our franchise partners to set up in business. With a memorable brand name, tried and tested new technology, an advanced website, and low start-up costs for quicker profitability, we know that our business has a sound and winning formula.”
Franchise partners will also benefit from having their own exclusive territory, working with very sincere and straightforward people with strong business-building and promotional flair, and from conscientious training, and daily support.
Caroline Kempster said “As the name says, this is a brand which will appeal to franchise business partners who want run a ‘people’ business and to operate with a different approach to many letting agents. We work hard to find and retain a long-standing team of professional and specialist staff, savvy property investors and landlords, and reliable contractors. We now know that this business model can be replicated both cost-effectively and easily.”
Anthony and Caroline are now looking for the right type of person to start up the next The Letting People branch - no experience is necessary, but you must be energetic, a good communicator, adaptable to the unexpected and able to deal with all types of people, ambitious, and willing to learn.....Is this for you?

I was getting married and moving into our new house. We decided to let out my property to keep it as an investment for the future. I interviewed a few companies and The Letting People seemed to be the most down to earth, and I felt that they would look after my property. I guess that the rest is history and I was right as I am still using their services over 9 years later! Mrs W, landlord, Leamington Spa
