"James has found two sets of tenants for me. He has advertised and found suitable candidates, completed the required references and checks. He arranged the initial tenancy and renewal agreements. The result is trouble free letting. James visits my property regularly, and provides me with a report about any issues the tenants have, and the condition of the property, guiding me on any issues that need to be dealt with. All properties need maintenance, and James keeps me up to date with any work that needs to be undertaken. He obtains estimates, instructs contractors, checks that the work has been completed satisfactorily. James is a very professional property manager. He has made life very simple for me as a landlord. I have no hesitation in recommending Peninsula Management."
MARTIN CRITCHARD - NORTH DEVON
"As a developer of high-end residential property in Prime Central London I would highly recommend James at Peninsula to anybody looking for someone to manage their property – whether it be for a small single unit or a large portfolio, residential or commercial. His meticulous attention to detail, broad based understanding of all things property – from construction through legislation to health and safety issues – and impressive interpersonal skills make him the ideal candidate to manage your property assets through the trials and tribulations of letting. Furthermore he is totally trustworthy and reliable and he manages your property as if it was his own!"
CHRIS BAILEY - LONDON
"If you are after a reliable, efficient, knowledgeable and friendly property manager then look no further than James! We have a flat in a block of 5 in Ilfracombe which James manages for us. He keeps the fire checks, insurance and paperwork side of things up to date on our behalf; ensures communal areas are cleaned and the garden maintained regularly using his local contacts. James comes from a practical background so is able to be hands on too. As well as running the regular maintenance James has gone out to tender on our behalf to get some one-off larger jobs done which he is now overseeing for us. James will always get straight back to us if we have a query and are always friendly and easy to deal with. He comes highly recommended."
CLARE BOTSFORD - TORRS VALE APARTMENTS
"I have known James at Peninsula Management for around 5 years now and in that time he has helped me considerably with the management of, both, the commercial and residential side of my investment portfolio in Ilfracombe. The perfect thing for me is that I trust him completely to get things spot on with all forms of legislation, but at the same time he is always so personable and approachable. My testimonial is completely genuine, totally independent and I am more than happy to be contacted for any further assurance if required. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Peninsula Management, I've been a freeholder/Investor for many years and experienced incredible incompetence, but now I can rest easy, thanks to James Lethaby and Peninsula!"
PHIL WOODCOCK - LYNTON, NORTH DEVON
"I only recently moved back into the North Devon area after a 40 year absence living in Los Angeles and London. I moved into my flat in Ilfracombe September 2016 having purchased the property in November 2015. Initially there had been another management company in place who I had met to discuss my proposed improvements to the communal area of the building. This changed in 2016 to the current company, Peninsula Management Company run by James Lethaby. From an initial concern of a changeover I am absolutely delighted that this did occur as I have found James to be consistent in his time management, communication, professionalism, knowledge and standards to maintaining of a building within the requirements of the law. I am completely safe and secure in the knowledge that this building is in very safe and capable hands.
I have had to deal with many building management companies both in U.K. and USA and Peninsula Management is very much top of the table."
