If you’re looking for property to rent in East London or West Essex, it’s likely you may feel a little overwhelmed. There are now so many agents and private landlords out there that trying to make the right decision can often bring on a bout of analysis paralysis!

Well, being the kindhearted souls that we are, we thought we’d make it a little easier for you by spelling out some of the key reasons why you should rent a house or flat through Petty Son and Prestwich.

Established in 1908

Unlike many of the newbies out there offering rental properties, we’ve been doing this for well over 100 years. Not only does this mean we know a thing or two about rental homes, it’s also safe to say that no one knows the local area quite like we do.

A name you can trust

As if our longevity isn’t enough, we’re also highly accredited too. We follow the codes of practice laid out by all of the industry’s main governing bodies, including:

  • The Association of Residential Lettings Agents
  • The National Approved Lettings Scheme
  • SAFEagent
  • Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme
  • The Property Ombudsman
  • The National Association of Estate Agents


Our adherence to the rules and standards set by these professional bodies ensures that you will receive the highest possible level of customer service whenever you deal with us.
