Despite the negative image some people may have about estate agents, our business is really founded on helping people. If we can’t help you move within a desired timeframe, find a tenant at short notice, or achieve the price you are looking for from your property, the likelihood is that you are going to go elsewhere. It’s a simple case of supply and demand.

Here at Petty Son and Prestwich, however, we believe in bringing value not just to our clients but also to the wider community. With this in mind, we are delighted to introduce to you our new (and free!) property maintenance referral service.

What is it?

Petty’s Property Maintenance Referral Service is a free way for homeowners to connect with reputable local contractors whenever they need work carried out on their properties.

Why are we doing it?

The truth is, we’ve been doing it for years already! We are well known in the area for our property maintenance and the quality of service we provide the landlords who entrust their investments with us, so we get asked who we would recommend for this-or-that a lot.

The key difference now, however, is that anyone can give us a call when they’re in need of a reliable contractor...whether they are connected to Petty Son and Prestwich or not. In short, if you live locally, we’re more than happy to point you in the right direction whenever you need work carried out at home.

Why now?

We’ve seen a growing trend of locals asking for contractor recommendations within social media groups lately, as well as an increase in friends and family asking for our advice.

We know that our hands on experience in dealing with neighbourhood trades-people can help residents make the right choices and, in turn, give the good guys a little more work along the way.

Add to that the warm, fuzzy feeling we get from helping people out and you have yourself a bona fide win/win/win situation!

Who do we refer?

Basically all contractors associated with the property industry. So, from a homeowners point of view, likely referrals would include, but not be limited to, the following:

  • Bathroom and kitchen fitters
  • Builders
  • Carpenters
  • Cleaners
  • Decorators
  • Electricians
  • Flooring specialists
  • Landscapers
  • Locksmiths
  • Plasterers
  • Plumbers
  • Roofers
  • Security system installers


We know how important word of mouth can be when making a decision over who to allow into your home, and we’d only ever recommend those who we’d trust in our own properties, so our referrals are rock solid.

How does it work?

Simple! All you need to do is pick up the phone and ask! Call our office on 020 8989 2091 and one of our friendly agents will be happy to help connect you with the relevant contractor.

What’s the catch?

No catch! This is a completely free local service and we receive absolutely nothing in return for offering it. We ask nothing of you if you want a referral, nor do we charge a commision to contractors we recommend.

This is purely a helping hand for local homeowners who are stuck for a good contractor and a way of supporting the real tradesmen and women who work extremely hard at their own respective businesses.

So, if you need a local contractor but don’t know where to turn, turn to Pettys!
