Key advantages include:
Dedicated solely to Lettings and Property Management
You benefit from the experience and knowledge we have built up over three decades. We are not Estate Agents and prefer to specialise in what we know best.
Free, Honest Advice
To help you make that all-important decision, we are always happy to discuss how best to prepare your property for letting or what to look for when purchasing a Buy-To-Let investment.
A Quick Let
Effective marketing, great photography, automatic alerts for tenants and a pro-active follow-up to enquiries means your property is seen immediately and is let with the minimum delay to maximise your return.
The Right Tenant
Our experience and judgement, plus our comprehensive reference checks, help us to put forward the best tenants possible for your approval. We will not stop viewings until the right tenant is found.
Prompt Rental Payments
We have a dedicated accounts department who will pay your rent directly into your account as soon as it is received and chase your tenant for any late payments promptly on your behalf.
Your own experienced Property Manager
who will visit your property regularly and report back so you are fully aware of how your asset is being cared for. As your point of contact they will deal with any issues that may arise.
A Well Maintained Property
Your Property Manager will also be responsible for any maintenance that may be required. They will liaise with you to ensure repairs are dealt with swiftly and at reasonable cost.
Minimal Void Periods
We aim to be ahead of the game so we know as soon as your tenants are planning to move on. This way we can advertise early to find a suitable new tenant and avoid your property standing empty.
Protecting your property
A schedule of condition detailing your property will be drawn up before the tenancy start. Against this we will take a deposit from your tenant, held until we have made the final check-out.
Guidance On Safety Regulations and Legal Matters
We always strive to keep our landlords up to date with any changes or new requirements, to make sure you and your property comply with all regulations.
Regulated by the Association of Residential Letting Agents
This guarantees that we employ qualified staff, offer Client Money Protection, undergo external auditing and are up-to-date with legislation changes.

What Our Clients Say
I have been a Landlord for some 30 years with many agents both in and around the Home Counties and here in Dorset. Harker and Bullman are the best agents I have dealt with by far, with long term experienced staff who are very professional on all areas. I cannot recommend this letting agency highly enough.
My husband and I have used Harker and Bullman for many years. They have provided an excellent service, regular updates about the properties and arrange prompt well priced repairs from reliable tradesmen. We could not ask for a better service and have no hesitation in recommending Harker and Bullman to anyone looking for letting agents.
Friendly staff that look after our property as if it were their own. Good communication even though I am based overseas. Having the same contact gives continuity - I know I can speak with Sue and she will know what is happening with my property. If she is away she leaves me with a contact. She has been brilliant as our property manager for several years. Maintenance is sorted quickly and promptly and is never an issue. I cannot be happier with the service Sue gives me at Harker and Bullman!!
