JNP Partnership Lettings in High Wycombe move to New Office

The JNP Partnership has moved it's Residential Lettings Office from the sales office at 27 Crendon Street, High Wycombe to a self contained lettings office at 15 Crendon Street, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.

The original JNP lettings office was established in 2001 by Lettings Consultant Philip Suter FNAEA, MARLA who runs and is still also employed as a part time lettings consultant to JNP.

Due to the increase in the letting business in the High Wycombe area, new premises were needed with more room for additional staff.

Dave Pering a Director of JNP said "Last year was without question the most difficult in the property market for a very long time and possibly ever and it is great that in 2009 JNP are rising to the challenge of the current economic climate by expanding, while many of our competitors are contracting".

He went onto say "the high quality and level of experience of the Partnership's staff was the key to its success in the current climate"

Staff are ARLA trained and regularly attend ARLA courses and meetings and JNP are members of ARLA and NALS (National Approved Letting Scheme). JNP offers 3 levels of letting services taking up credit search references and acting as an Introducer to HomeLet insurance products.

The new office's head is Associate Director Stephen Grace who has been with JNP for many years and as well as being experienced in residential lettings has been involved in JNP's sales operation at Hazlemere, Bucks. Stephen said "The move didn't just mean more space for the agents, but also more staff for the department. We've not only opened a new office, but we have also recently expanded our lettings team."

"The lettings market in High Wycombe grew strongly throughout 2008 and JNP's market share has grown substantially , it is a natural progression for us to open a stand-alone office giving our clients, both landlords and tenants the dedicated attention they deserve."

Philip Suter added" I am very pleased to see that the business has grown so well. When I started the JNP lettings department in late 2001 that was just one part time member of myself and I was also involved in the promotion of holiday home advertising via I was in fact only involved in lettings four days a week. We now have seven including accounts staff."

"Since the business was originally launched there has been a lot more time consuming legislation that agents have to deal with, the latest being the provision of Energy Performance Certificates. This means that lettings staff have to be well trained and keep one hundred per cent up to date with ARLA courses."

JNP has sales offices in Hazlemere, High Wycombe, Prestwood and Princes Risborough.
