CGT Lettings started life as David Baldwin Estate agents in 1987 and in 1996 he bought the name Cheltenham Residential Lettings and moved the business to 119 The Promenade with 5 staff.
Over the next 20 years, the company became a major player in residential lettings in Gloucestershire with further branches in Gloucester, Quedgeley & Kingsway, Tewkesbury and Stroud, with a workforce that now spans 40 staff. In November 2017 the company celebrated 30 years in business -a truly wonderful achievement.
Within these 30 years there have been many changes to the lettings industry such as EPC regulations, Right to Rent, Gas Safety Installation and Use regulations, Carbon Monoxide alarms and Smoke alarm testing, legionnaires, De-regulation Act, Buy to Let mortgage and tax changes to name but a few. In fact, there have been 150 changes and new regulations to implement and enforce in the last six years alone. We uphold all of these on behalf of our landlords who have managed properties and through regular property inspections, we make sure all properties are habitual and safe for our tenants.
As members of professional bodies such as The Property Ombudsman, National Association of Estate Agents and ARLA Property mark we have stringent regulations to follow such as 6 monthly audits to make sure all deposits are safe and accounted for (protected by the Tenancy Deposit Scheme) and that all regulations are being adhered too. This is also achieved through the training of our staff to Property Mark standards.
CGT lettings offer two unique services to our Landlords
*a Gold Rental Protection Policy and
*a tailored Landlords Building and Contents Insurance provide by Zurich
We pride ourselves in being a professional family run business with owners David and Paula Baldwin being active in the company along with their son and sister. We also like to support local communities and charities. This year we have chosen Sue Ryder as our charity of the year and through walks, raffles, car cleaning events we hope to raise much needed funds for this worthy organization.
