Tenancy eviction company booms after record year
Tuesday 8th May 2012
Legal4Landlords, an evictions and tenancy referencing specialist, has moved to new offices and embarked on a recruitment drive after a record 12 months.
The firm, based in Warrington and on track to turn over £2m this year, has relocated to new premises housing both a call centre and a sales centre.
The staff count is up to 25 people based at the head office, and there are plans to add a further ten people. Further recruitment is expected across the national Legal 4 Landlords network which has 30 franchises.
The business was set up by landlords Sim Sekhon, Stephen Moss and Binder Dhillon for landlords in 2008 to tackle core problem areas faced by those in the lettings industry including tenant eviction, debt and rent recovery and tenant referencing.
Sekhon said: “The whole team has worked unbelievably hard over the last few years and it’s paid off. We’ve remained focused on our objectives to help make the lives of landlords and agents easier and we’ve exceeded them.
“Landlords and agents need our services more than ever in the current climate: evictions are at an all-time high. Business is about seizing opportunities. We had a business idea at the right time – we took the ball and ran with it.”
Sekhon added: “We’re constantly improving our services and have plenty more plans in the pipeline. Last year we launched a very popular rent guarantee insurance product – it’s an area of the business that has grown significantly.
“Looking forward, our main priority will be providing as much support as possible for our growing number of franchises. We have franchises right across the UK now, all doing a terrific job, but things don’t have to stop there – there are landlords and agents who could be benefiting from our services all over the world.”
Last year Legal 4 Landlords acquired a rental property search portal, mykeys.co.uk in a deal worth £300,000. The portal has 160,000 properties across the UK for tenants to let.
