Sansaw Estate today unveiled its partnership with Shrewsbury property firm Monks Estate and Letting Agents, who will take over lettings, marketing and inspections across the extensive residential portfolio.

Run by James and Åsa Thompson, Sansaw, on the outskirts of Shrewsbury, has more than 100 residential homes along with an award-winning business park and world class dairy.

Åsa said the partnership would be mutually beneficial to both the tenants and Sansaw as landlords, providing both parties with a strong framework to improve services.

“We want to be at the top of our game and teaming up with Monks will enable us to improve our offering and provide a consistent approach across the board,” Åsa explained.

“The rental market is changing and the legislation is ever-changing too. This will benefit us as landlords and enable us to concentrate on what we’re good at, which is maintaining these fabulous properties.

“We have been really struck with the clarity that Marie and her team brings and we know this will be beneficial to all.”

Marie Brooks is the lettings manager at Monks and is also the regional representative for ARLA, the Association of Residential Letting Agents.

She said: “Sansaw is committed to improving the service it provides for its tenants and it was clear that we could help them put together a structure which offered security and consistency.

“In many respects it’s about Monks providing peace of mind. The lettings world can be a bit of a minefield and the regulatory changes seem to happen every week, so it’s a huge undertaking to stay on top of everything.

“We will aid the technical and legal requirements, as well as helping market the properties when they come up for rent and undertaking thorough reference checks.

“We’re excited about the future.”

Sansaw manages 1,500 hectares of stunning north Shropshire countryside and sits on the outskirts of Shrewsbury near the village of Hadnall. Sansaw operates a working dairy farm and is home to over 35 businesses, ranging from care professionals to environmental consultancies on Sansaw Business Park.
