- Our Corporate Lettings department grows from strength to strength, with 40% of tenancies now secured through the hundreds of relocation agents we are in constant communication with. Many international companies, embassies and government bodies now favour Chard over and above other local agents as we always attract the right type of properties and landlords. We deal with hundreds of corporate tenants every week, who choose to work with us because they value our work ethic, professionalism and efficiency. Read more about Corporate Lettings.

We aim to make sure that everyone knows where they stand when it comes to costs. We offer a straightforward and transparent commission structure which allows our landlords to spread the payment of our commission over the duration of the tenancy. Unlike a lot of agents, our commission is paid on a monthly basis, so that our landlords start receiving an income for their property as soon as the tenant moves in.
