We hear it time and time again from people looking to rent a home:
“What?, only £50? Agent X, Y and Z charged me over £100 to reference”
Well good news, we charge £50 per applicant, once. We cannot morally or ethically charge up to £180 to reference a tenant when it costs us a fraction of that to make those checks. We’ve even heard horror stories of agents charging prospective tenants fees for such things as going on lists and needlessly renewing contracts every six months! Its hard enough when you are trying to rent a property to find the money that is required. On top of that first months rent you’ve usually got a bond to pay as well as all the nice new items of furniture or nik naks that everybody likes to buy when taking on a new home.
At R K Lucas & Son you can expect a professional service that doesn’t seek to charge you in anyway we think we can get away with, just £50 to apply per tenant, not per property.
Stop by and have a chat about your rent needs or give us a call, we’re sure you’ll be delighted with what we offer and how much money you can save instead of using a different Agent.

With all the conflicting newspaper headlines it is easy to become confused as to what the housing market is doing. One paper announces the market is about to drop and another shouts out that we are about to enter into another boom – what on earth is going on? One of the problems is that the reports are often made off the back of statistics provided by one provider of mortgages. So if a provider has changed their lending criteria for that month they may report a decline or a rise in the number of mortgages approved – which is then reported as a decline or rise in housing costs as the average amount loaned fluctuates – it is not very clever journalism!
