This is something we feel strongly about: living in a lovely home doesn’t mean you should pay over the odds. Our rents are fair – it’s as simple as that. And they always will be.
Forget all about middlemen like estate agents, third-party letting agents and estate managers. We manage everything ourselves – viewings, lettings, maintenance, repairs and more. And that makes everything faster and easier for you.
We think long-term renting should be a genuine alternative to home-ownership. That’s why a Placefirst neighbourhood lets you put down roots which are good and deep, and you can stay as long as you like.
We’re more than happy for you to have pets in your home and have a flexible policy that will accommodate most pets. Just tell us about your pets when you apply and we’ll make sure you‘re all comfortable and happy.
We won’t put up your rent unexpectedly or by an unreasonable amount. We review our rents once a every year. Our reviews are linked to the Consumer Price Index plus just 1%, and they apply to every single Placefirst home. It’s that simple, and that fair.
Our friendly Residents’ Services Team will always be there for you. They provide a fast and professional service, so whatever your concern – just ask.
Every 12 months, we’ll come and health-check your home. We’ll also take care of essential maintenance and repair jobs as they arise. And we’ll keep the whole neighbourhood in great condition: safe, well-lit, neat and tidy.
After the first 12 months, tell us what you want to do, and you can decorate your home yourself. We just ask for that first year because we want to see how our renovation work settles down (so we can repair any cracks in the plaster, for example).
Renting with Placefirst has been a very positive, pleasant experience. We have had the opportunity to rent a high quality property, with low maintenance, yet contemporary and tasteful features for a very reasonable rate. When we compared the property with others on the rental market in the area it was of superior quality and represented excellent value for money. Since we have moved in Placefirst have constantly enhanced the development adding finishing touches such as gardens and hanging baskets and giving the area a real sense of community.

We absolutely love our home. It’s very modern, the features are brilliant and is energy efficient. The whole area is starting to look really attractive. I think everyone is settling in now. I think its beneficial having the same landlord. We have never had a problem with the service, if anything needs to be sorted out it is handled right away. We get on really well with the guys that are on site and they go the extra mile to help.

I can honestly say I have never had landlords like PlaceFirst who actually care about their tenants and add that personal touch that means so much. I can’t recommend them highly enough. I have been a tenant of PlaceFirst for a little over two years. I can honestly say I love the house I rent which has had a total revamp and is now a modern airy home. I also love the area I live in – it‘s ideal for families. It’s an up and coming part of Accrington – the whole area is being rejuvenated with communal gardens for all the residents to use and enjoy. I can honestly say Placefirst are what I would class as the ideal landlord. They look after their tenants and I for one have no plans to move for a very long time, if at all.

Their customer service is always of a very high standard with issues resolved in a timely and professional manner by staff who obviously care that a superior service is provided. We would highly recommend renting with Placefirst as they provide high quality family homes and a stress-free rental experience.

I could not recommend Andrew Bealby and Placefirst enough. Andrew helped make the letting process as pain free as possible and placefirst have always been on hand to help us when needed.
The property has been renovated to an impeccable standard and represents excellent value in our eyes. We also have some very friendly neighbours, which is always a bonus!
