We both really enjoyed our time at number 24 and felt well looked after by the Belhus staff who responded quickly to any concerns raised over maintenance issues over the 6 years and eight months of the tenancy.

The rent was very reasonable , especially when considering the difficult economic climate and good notice given of any changes.
It\'s a difficult task to being an intermediary between landlord and tenant but this seemed to be handled with fairness and equity and diplomacy towards both parties from the Belhus team . Thank you all very much.

Will and Allison Crane

I can't thank this lady enough! She's been such a great help and support to me and my family through a stressful time finding us the home we always dreamed of to raise our children. Pauline is so quick to respond to emails and answers all of my queries without hesitation! Everything from start to finish was smooth sailing. I have used Belhus for 2 rental properties now and I know I will continue to use their services in the future and also recommend to family and friends! Thank you Belhus properties (especially Pauline!)

Lauren Edwards

Belhus were brilliant. The got us in within 2 weeks which was far quicker than anybody else we had spoken to.
Pauline looked after us really well. She checked in with us and made sure we knew what we needed to do and helped with anything we didn’t.
She made the whole process so simple and met us at the property on moving day to hand over the keys.
We have now been here 5 weeks and she is always on hand to answer any questions of deal with any queries we have.
It is a pleasure to work with Pauline and Belhus

Ben Mumford

The team at Belhus Properties have looked after my rental house for many years now. We have never had any issues with the tenants they have found. They are very thorough with their referencing, they don\'t just tick the boxes they get to know the prospective tenants. Any problems with the property are soon sorted by the team of trades they work with. We had used a few agency previously but have stayed with Belhus because they care.

Karen Walker

Lydia was absolutely fantastic in how she handled our move. Lydia spoke to both solicitors and ensured that everyone was pulling in the same direction. I personally feel that our move would not have actually happened had it not been for Lydia and her work.

She was enthusiastic, always available and a tremendous help in both the sale of the property and in helping us to settle in.

Ben

Brilliant service from beginning to end would highly recommend. Other properties in the area still yet to sell but due to amazing photos and listing made ours stand out from the rest

Ronnie Robinson

As Letting Agents, Belhus Properties always deliver in a timely and professional manner. Always found Pauline to be helpful and proactive and to keep us informed throughout the process of securing new tenants.

Clare Fox

Fantastic Service. We loved working with Pauline, she was incredibly nice and helpful.

Natalie Brown

Really helpful and supportive, so many little things that have formed part of the package to make my move smooth and (nearly) stress-free!

Simon Hindley

Pauline was an extremely helpful estate agent. Her communication was great and she was able to facilitate an efficient rental process so that we could move in quickly after we found the property. Thanks Pauline!

Connie Godden

Pauline is a very friendly person who is incredibly helpful when finding a suitable property, as well as offering all of the necessary assistance needed prior to moving in. A+ would recommend.

Declan Thomas

Excellent, easy process from start to finish. Pauline, who assisted us from viewing to handover, couldn’t have been more helpful or friendly. Always willing to assist and kept up informed through whole process. The referencing system, so quick and automated.
Highly recommended, couldn’t fault

Paul Waddoups

We recommend Belhus for their attention to detail and mastery at fixing tricky maintenance jobs using skilled people, at reasonable cost. They are great at keeping us informed and go the extra mile to make sure that things get fixed well. Happy tenants and happy owners.

Catherine Turner

We have worked with Katy on a few occasions now and we have nothing but positive words to say about her and her lovely team. It isn’t always an easy experience selling a property but Katy and her team really go the extra mile to ensure the process is as smooth as possible. Through COVID-19 there were a few times that we thought we’d lost the sale, but thanks, in no small part to Katy we got there in the end. Very committed to client care and answering any queries.

Tom Wood

Belhus look after our flat in Colchester. They visit regularly to check its condition, and respond quickly to any requests from the tenant. If repairs or maintenance are required they find tradespeople very quickly and can even undertake some work themselves. On more than one occasion they have negotiated, on our behalf, with other organisations connected with the building. We have employed their services since 2008. Despite a number of different tenants over this time, they have been highly effective in finding new tenants, and I don’t think there has been a single week without a tenant. The staff are helpful, friendly, and really care about clients and tenants.

Stephen Hudson

Very helpful and friendly service. Any issues that need dealing with regarding my property are done quickly and efficiently. When finding new tenants I have always been kept informed regarding viewings and possible interest etc. I am very happy to recommend Belhus properties based on how they have treated and looked after me over the last few years.

Sarah Fellows

We have received excellent customer service from Belhus properties. They/Ella has been so caring and understanding and helped us find our first house with our new born baby, who decided to arrive five weeks early! Ella was so patient and even asked after me when my husband went in with the paperwork. It definitely helped alleviate some stress! Best estate agents we have used so far and we’ve had some really negative experiences :(. So lovely to find a really good one!! Highly recommended!! Melissa

Melissa Totman

We listed our property with Belhus and Lydia was amazing. She marketed the property really well, conducted viewings very professionally and kept us updated throughout the whole selling process – helping to take the stress out of selling. Thank you Lydia and the Belhus team

Natalie Smith

Our moving experience was made so much easier by Pauline who has been so helpful .She was extremely prompt with dealing with any queries. We have had overall a very positive experience with belhus properties

Helen Hughes

Belhus Properties is a lovely 'boutique' family business that is super dynamic. Sales Director Lydia Adams has a lovely sunny personality and goes out of her
way to identify properties to meet your specific criteria. I thoroughly recommend Belhus!

Denise Barrett

Lydia was excellent. Unfortunately one of the solicitors involved in the sale was very slow , in fact so slow that I think they were in reverse! The sale should have been easy as there was only one property in the chain. Lydia did so much to move the sale on, chasing people and keeping me updated all the time.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Belhus Properties if you are thinking of selling your house.

Chris Bullock

I have never rented before, but Pauline made the whole process easy, and service I received was second to none.

Brad Hollywood

We were very happy with our experience with Belhus Properties. Especially with Pauline who dealt with us. She was quick to respond to any questions\/queries we had and never made us feel like we were asking too much. I feel that Pauline went above and beyond to make our experience quick and easy with little to no stress that moving home would normally bring. Definitely recommend Belhus Properties for people looking to rent a new place!

Lauren Edwards

We chose Belhus Properties for the sale of our property in Copford following strong recommendations from previous clients. We wanted a ‘non pushy agent’ rather than the usual wide boy, pushy agents generally associated with Estate Agents. We got exactly what we wanted. Lydia was professional, attentive, efficient and sensitive to our needs. We cannot recommend Belhus Properties highly enough. We had a few hiccups along the way, but nothing was too much trouble for Lydia to sort out without the need for us to get too involved with the day-to-day negotiations and toing and froing between all parties involved. A first-class service. Thank you once again.

Alan Randall

We found the process of letting with Belhus very straight forward. The referencing and signing of all paperwork was done online which is very convenient. Pauline was very nice and helpful and secured our dream home for us. All in all a great experience and we would recommend Pauline and her team to anyone 🙂

Freya Iratxe Martinez-Hurtado

W e have been with Belhus Properties since 2012. As Letting Agents for our property, Katy, Pauline & the team know exactly who we like as tenants. Any problems are dealt with professionally & quickly, it is always a pleasure speaking to them.
Recently Belhus Properties helped us to market & sell an apartment. Lydia , the estate agent, went beyond the call of duty. Her enthusiasm, help & understanding of the situation was second to none. She was a wonderful go between, between us, our buyer & both Solicitors, with a successful outcome.
Thank you Belhus !!!!

William Low

It was 2014 when I first met Katy, Lydia and the team. I was immediately impressed with their professionalism, enthusiasm and personal commitment to the rental of my property. It’s now 2022 and I entrusted Lydia to sell the property. What an excellent decision! She was proactive, produced an excellent marketing video and a buyer was found immediately. Throughout the process she kept me informed every single step of the way. Thank you Katy, Lydia and Pauline. I’m a very satisfied customer.

Eileen Sheehan

Genuinely fabulous estate agents. We had Lydia dealing with the property we were buying and, even though we aren\'t technically her client since we were buying it not selling, she kept us in the loop and was so lovely! She did so much for us (far more than the solicitors we were actually paying!!)
We would 100% use Lydia and Belhus if we were ever to sell the property we bought!

Sophie Bennett

From my very first viewing with Pauline the service I have received from every member of staff at Belhus has been friendly, courteous and thoroughly professional.

Mrs N Smith

Excellent service for rental management and sales. Friendly staff managed everything for us on the rental side – things were fixed and renewed on time and inexpensively, pleasing both the tenants and us. On the sales side, we loved their enthusiasm for handling our sale, we have been kept informed and treated with a lot of care. Thank you Belhus – we have been endlessly impressed by all of you.

Catherine Turner

Pauline helped us secure our rental property in Colchester. Pauline was very friendly and approachable and kept us updated all the way. Questions we had with regards to the property were answered straight away and Pauline even helped take our meter readings on our move in day! Thank you for all your help, it was much appreciated.

Phillip Austin

What a wonderful and easy experience. We were looked after all the way through the process by Lydia, who was a delight to deal with. Belhus sold my property within 1 day for full asking price!!
Definitely worth talking with them – you will not be disappointed.

Gavin Horner

The service we received was excellent. The agents were efficient and always able to answer our questions. We would highly recommend belhus properties.

Monica Massyn

Katy, Pauline and the team at Beluhs Properties have been managing my rental properties for the past 6 years. They understand my requirements personally and have taken the stress away from renting and managing the properties.

I would recommend using a local agent who will get to know you personally and have the continuity of the same day to day contacts within Belhus.

Darrell Fox

Pauline at Belhus was extremely helpful and friendly from the first call to enquire about a property available. She booked me in for a viewing very quickly and answered any questions. This is my first time renting and she was able to help with anything I needed and checked in throughout the process. The systems used by Belhus made the paperwork side of things extremely easy. Very happy in my new home and would recommend Pauline and Belhus to anyone looking to rent or lease out their property.

Laura

Extremely good service from start to finish. Very informative and kept up to date at every stage. Warm and friendly staff, would definitely recommend Belhus Properties.

Maria Kernott

Throughout the process of my property sale Belhus Properties were constantly in touch with both myself and my buyer and liaising with Solicitors. They were very professional and I would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

Jacqueline Durney

Jacqui Durney

Katy Adams was the listing agent for the property I purchased. As a first time buyer in the UK, she went above and beyond in guiding me through the process and providing me with timely and valuable responses to my many questions. In particular, due to COVID and the travel restrictions I faced, Katy took the time to arrange for viewings with my family in England and kept me apprised along the way with a personal touch. I would highly recommend Katy and Belhus Properties.

Serena Lefort

I\'v been very happy with the excellent service the team at Belhus Properties have provided over the 10years managing my property. They have been quick and efficient in dealing with any issues that arose. A first class service.

Stephen Curtis

The team at Belhus were very helpful & professional when I approached them about renting our property in Brentwood. They are always very responsive to any queries or problems I have – highly recommend.

natalie summers

Belhaus were very professional and helpful throughout the whole process of moving. Moving house is one of the most stressful experience’s you can go through and having a company like Belhaus at your side is an absolute god send.
Would recommend them to anyone thinking of moving in the near future.

Richard Estall

Excellent client- focused service. Nothing is too much trouble for Katy and the lettings team; they are efficient, empathetic and they have been unstintingly helpful to me throughout the Covid period. I can’t praise them enough.

My experience dealing with Pauline Futcher of Belhus Properties for leasing a property at Colchester is excellent. She is very professional with prompt responses to my questions and inquires. Documentation turnaround is quickly and is fully electronically managed. Working effectively and come up with reasonable solutions to tackle issues in order to meet the requirements from the landlord and the tenant.

Paul Lo

What a delightful company to work with !
After experiencing a poor agent in Witham , I changed my allegiance to Belhus Properties and it was like a breath of fresh air to what I had been used
to .
Contracts were taken care of , site inspections done on time , any maintenance the property needed was dealt with almost immediately and my rent was paid into my account promptly
every month !
Thank you Belhus for your continued support.

I bought the house as an investment via BELHUS PROPERTIES four years ago and was impressed by Katy Adam\'s and her attentive team. Since then I have relied upon Katy and her team to renew Tenancies, advise on Rent and the Terms of Leases. Most recently Katy & Pauline & Kim handled lots of viewings & access for workmen & referenced quite a few prospective tenants until they found me a lovely family.

Peter Philpotts

Great customer service. Michelle was fantastic showing us around the property and really helpful afterwards. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Zoe Dawson

Hi, I have recently let property through Belhus and have found
their approach very professional. I found the staff particularly friendly and Michelle has been very attentive.

Rob

We have received excellent customer service from Belhus properties.

They/Ella has been so caring and understanding and helped us find our first house with our new born baby, who decided to arrive five weeks early!

Ella was so patient and even asked after me when my husband went in with the paperwork. It definitely helped alleviate some stress!

Best estate agents we have used so far and we’ve had some really negative experiences :(. So lovely to find a really good one!!
