Why choose to rent with Ferndown Estates?
Thank you for visiting our site!
We were one of the very first agents in the UK who chose to scrap the charging of fees in order to reduce the burden for people looking to move and find a suitable home to rent. We abolished charging fees in October 2017, well before the tenant fee ban came into effect.
We wanted to encourage more tenants to rent via our company. So, scrapping application fees became our thing...and it worked!!
By scrapping fees to tenants we had lots of tenants wanting to rent via ourselves and we were able to tell landlords we had lots more tenants to choose from for their properties!
From 1st June 2019 Agents and landlords are no longer be able to charge high fees to tenants who want to move into their properties. This is seen as a positive step for tenants who are able to move into properties without onerous charges. In the event you wish to apply for one of our properties, you will be asked to pay a holding fee which allows us to remove the property from the market whilst we go through our referencing process with you.
The referencing process can only be conducted on one property at a time and we can only take one holding fee per tenant.
It is important you know that the maximum time we can hold onto holding fees is 15 days.
We are keen to promote positive relationships between tenants and landlords and encourage a positive, rewarding and responsive process for all
Our streamlined application process can mean your chosen property is available for you in a short space of time. As part of our application process we like to come and meet you at your own property to introduce our service and discuss your tenancy requirements to ensure the property is right for you (and your family).
We offer single lets, couples, families, corporate and multiple lets depending on the property.
Typically 12 months tenancies are issued however, we are happy to discuss alternative timeframes (subject to satisfactory references and in some cases a suitable guarantor). All persons over 18 will need to appear on the tenancy agreements we issue
We welcome your enquiry to any of our properties. Please click on the link below which explains our process further!
Thank you for thinking of choosing Ferndown Estates for your ongoing tenancy!

"Firstly can I say how grateful we are to all the team at Ferndown Estates for finding our perfect property. We have a lot of work to do but we have already settled in lovely at Marston Croft where the residents are all friendly and very welcoming. The area actually a lot quieter than we imagined being so close to the railway and airport but it really doesn't bother us at all. "
