10 Years

10th Year of Trading

05 Apr 2019 | Category : News

L&A Lettings will be celebrating 10 years successful trading on Saturday 6 April 2019!

Where did that time go?

Well back then there was just me, Ann and Richard, our son, working out of a converted garage at home?

Now there’s the same three plus – Beth, Jon, Paul, Glen and Annie. Five extra positions of employment created for local people! All working from our established shop premises at the heart of Ashmore Park.

We’ve grown steadily through word of mouth, which would suggest that we do things right. In fact our business has tripled in 5 years!!

This was reinforced when we were awarded the first ‘5 star’ accreditation by Wolverhampton City Council.

We’ve managed our business growth against an increasingly difficult onslaught of new and restrictive legislation
# The change from housing benefit to local housing allowance
# Introduction of deposit protection
# Gas safety changes, EPCs, How to Rent Books, Smoke Detectors, NEGATIVE Tax Changes, Reduction in Deposits, Selective and Mandatory Licencing, Ban on Tenant Fees.

Add into the mix the introduction of Universal Credit and the difficulty this has caused when we try to support tenants who are in receipt of benefits!

Phew – and here we are surviving and working hard on behalf of landlords and tenants.

On Saturday 6 April at 11am the Mayor of Wolverhampton and the Mayor of Walsall will be in attendance at our shop to celebrate with us our 10 year anniversary.
