Personal Attention

From arranging a valuation through to handing over the keys, you will always deal with one of our directors or managers along the way from start to finish.

If you need to get in touch with us outside of office hours, we are constantly monitoring emails so it is likely you will get a reply when you need it.

This is our family business and we care about maintaining our good name in the local community. Your satisfaction is our reputation!

Open Houses

Open houses are not just very convenient for sellers (no individual viewings at different times of the week and you only have to tidy up once!) but they also really do work in creating competition among potential buyers of your home.

Buyers competing for properties helps encourage best offers – and best offers mean you really do get the highest possible price for your home! We are at the property throughout the whole time so you are not alone in this process.


Dealing with solicitors/conveyancing firms on a daily basis means we know better than anyone the importance of having a dedicated point of contact who will always pick up the phone and prioritise a customer’s file when needed.

That’s why we always use trusted local companies rather than call centre operations based hundreds of miles away, and are very happy to put you in touch if you need a recommendation.

Valuations for Probate

In most circumstances, the legal representatives and/or family will need an idea of the market value of the property’ in order to complete the application for Probate. Please contact us to discuss your options and requirements for the probate application. Our sensitive appointments are carried out by either our Director or a Senior Manager.

Please contact either Allan Wasley to discuss further – 01594 835751. Allan will arrange for an appointment that is convenient to you and/or the family. It’s a sensitive time for clients and therefore only Allan or one of his senior Managers will attend. We will assure you of our best attentions at this time.


Dean Estate Agents has the advantage of having a unique insight into the latest market values due to the sheer volume of properties we rent out. Our Management Team carry out many valuations every year, giving us unparalleled knowledge of the latest rental values. We value accurately to achieve the best price and attract the right tenant.

Tenant Information

When you have decided to apply for a property to rent, you will be asked to complete an application form which helps explain the next stages of your application and the money that will be due before you sign your Tenancy agreement. It also confirms the agreed rent, the dates due and the remaining security deposit required. For your information, in the majority of cases Dean Estate Agents will protect your security deposit with The Deposit protection Service, also known as THE DPS.

The Holding deposit of 1 weeks rent is payable to Dean Estate Agents Lettings Ltd. This fee will not be returned if you withdraw for any reason and can only be accepted from Dean Estate Agents Lettings when accompanied by a completed application form.

Your application cannot be processed until all tenants have submitted their full information on the reference application forms. The references will be undertaken by a referencing company and/or us (Dean Estate Agents Lettings Ltd) who will contact your Employer and Landlord to qualify the submitted information. We will also conduct a credit search. Bonuses and overtime may not be taken into account. Dean Estate Agents Ltd cannot enter into any discussion or correspondence concerning replies to references or any application that has been declined by the Landlord. You are not permitted to view or have copies of your credit search.

If your application is successful you will have to pay the remaining security deposit of 4 weeks to add to the already received holding deposit.

The deposit is held by a recognised body known as the Deposit Protection Service. The deposit will not be returned until the end of the tenancy and only then, provided your rent is paid in full, all household bills are paid in full and the property is returned to the Landlord to our satisfaction.

We are required by law to carry out a ‘Right to Rent’ check on all applicants from the age of 18. This is entirely separate from tenant referencing and there is no charge for this.
