CHK Mountford is a long established Letting Agent with 30 years experience in the Surrey lettings market.
Specialising in Residential Lettings and Property Management, CHK Mountford offer both landlords & tenants an unrivalled and comprehensive letting service at the same time adapting to each client’s individual wishes in order to meet their requirements.
We are licensed members of A.R.L.A (The Association of Residential Letting Agents) the professional and regulatory body for Letting Agents. All key members of our staff are qualified under the ARLA requirement. Accordingly, we are able to advise our clients on Landlord and Tenant law including successive Rent Acts, Housing Acts and Contract Law.
CHKM are honoured to have been awarded the Gold award for Best Lettings Agents 2018 in the South East (Surrey and Sussex) as rated by Landlords at the annual property Oscars. This is our second year of this coveted title, as we also won this last year, 2017.
In its 16th year, the ESTAS is an independent national award scheme dedicated to recognising exceptional estate and letting agents across the country. The winners are decided purely on the basis of customer feedback. This year over 36,000 people participated in the ESTAS research, one of the largest and rigorous surveys in the property industry - indicating just how personal and important buying, selling and letting a home is for people; and how important estate and letting agents are to helping customers achieve their goals.
It is widely accepted that without professional guidance and control, the whole aspect of letting a home can become, for the private Landlord, a minefield of issues both legal and emotional. Successful letting depends entirely on the selection of the right tenant and strict observation of the current legislation. It is for this reason that CHK Mountford will be of invaluable assistance.
As a client you will reap the benefit of our wide experience; our knowledge of the legal safeguards and pitfalls, our familiarity with the current market and our list of resources that bring those all-important enquiries. In short, your letting will be conducted with a thorough and professional approach with all the security an approved, qualified A.R.L.A. agent can provide.
Firmly established as market leaders in Surrey, our Esher office regularly agrees rentals to many of the FTSE 100 companies, high net worth individuals and VIP tenants, often achieving Surrey’s highest value rents. At the same time we manage some of the most desirable properties in the UK. Our very busy Surbiton office manages the largest property portfolio in Surrey and continually agrees rentals to many young families and commuting professionals who are drawn to this area.
Whilst CHK Mountford operate as a stand-alone, bespoke letting agency we are associated with the renowned Agency John D. Wood & Co. This gives us a wider London and Home Counties reach extending to a much larger global exposure via a network of associated international partners.

Marketing your property

We publish all our properties with professional photography and floor plans to the property portals as well as our own site www.chkmountford.co.uk
"Our market leading branch in Esher, successfully found Tenants for more Landlords than any other agent throughout 2017 in the combined areas of; Esher, Cobham, Oxshott, Claygate, Thames Ditton and East Molesey." (statistics provided by Right Move plus inteligence)
We prepare a full colour brochure which includes professional photography and a detailed floor plan. We find this is extremely helpful to prospective tenants particularly as they first search for property from overseas. To gauge a property from only an external picture is difficult and normally
encourages the Tenant to quickly dismiss it and go to the next one, with much fuller information with internal images.
We have recently introduced Virtual tours to some of our client’s properties. This a newly regenerated, high definition and totally immersive dynamic to property marketing. A user can either log in via the Zoopla web site or request a virtual tour on their pc or view with a headset which is an interactive and convenient way to view a property, if the user can’t get to the property in person.
We commission professional photographers who will ensure your property looks its very best to ensure maximum impact. CHK Mountford will take on board the costs of this and ensure there are no extra charges levied with regard to marketing your property, unless discussed at a later stage if additional marketing is required such as a bespoke advert within a national magazine or newspaper.
Our brand new, residesigned (June 2018) site has a direct live feed from our database, this ensures all new instructions appear immediately after our client’s instruction, photographs and Energy Performance certificate is received. Google maps with street views are clearly shown next to each property thus pin-pointing each location and in addition, there are useful tabs for detailed information to include local schools, transport links and as well as our useful ‘Lettings Guide’ brochure, from our home page.
Of course, we do not expect to have all our enquiries from just our own web site, we extend our property marketing to many more property portals to include the world renowned and most commonly visited; Prime location, Zoopla, Rightmove, Move To as well as inclusion on the web property sections of The Times, Daily Mail & The Telegraph.
Often, many of our more interesting properties, property related news and anecdotes are placed on our social media platforms such as; twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Linked In.
