ESTATE agents Allen & Harris will be opening a new lettings department at their office in Penarth.

With this they welcome their new lettings manager, Lance Robertson, who will head up this division and is tasked with developing it into a major presence in the town.

Lance knows the Penarth area very well and has many years’ experience in letting properties, which puts him in good stead for taking on this new position and offering advice on lettings, property management, investment opportunities, buy to let and building a portfolio.

“I’m really looking forward to this new challenge," said Lance.

"The lettings market in Penarth is buoyant at the moment and there is massive potential to develop this division. I have a great team around me and we’ve already had a busy start, so I’ve had to hit the ground running.”

He added: “One of the reasons I joined Allen & Harris was because of its excellent support operation, which provides speedy and accurate help and information to our landlords and tenants. This, combined with our membership of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) and high level of training means that I don’t have much trouble explaining to clients the great quality and professional service they will receive.”
