Michael McDonnell and Robert Haydock have 45 years collective experience in property management and residential lettings.
Before setting up business together we worked throughout the south Manchester area, establishing & successfully expanding the Didsbury branch of one the UK’s largest letting agents. During this time, we acquired an excellent local knowledge of the private rented sector & learnt, from experience, the fundamental practices of good property management. Having set up our own Agency in 2000, we've since worked tirelessly to build a network consisting of local landlords &, suitably qualified, reliable contractors. We've also established good working relationships with many other professionals equally connected with the lettings industry - such as solicitors, surveyors, independent financial consultants, & corporate asset managers.
At McDonnell Haydock, we aspire to offer our clients the benefits associated in dealing with a local independent organisation - continuity, accountability & impartiality. As a small organisation, comparitive to the national corporates - we take much pride in our ability to compete on equal terms with nationwide agents & other local independents alike. We welcome the opportunity to put ourselves to the test by working "no let - no fee" or by marketing your property on a "joint agency" basis - such is the confidence in our ability to find you the right tenant.
Aside from being seasoned letting agents, we have sought to expand our business interests by building a small portfolio of residential buy to let properties - as like so many of our Clients, we also see the perfect opportunity to engage in a business that, we believe, will provide an investment for today, an income for tomorrow & an inheritance for the future.We feel we are therefore suitably placed, with the requisite first hand experience, to offer our clients advice & guidance on all aspects of an investment which is framed by an ever changing backdrop. We pay particular mind to relevant & far-reaching aspects of the industry - to include, for example -: recent changes to tax legislation that affect any mortgage interest relief you may have previously received, the increase in stamp duty on buy to let property investments & also essential legislation needed to ensure the health & safety of your tenant.
In an age driven by technology, ironically, many clients tell us they now have less, not more time, to effectively look after their investments. This coupled with the fact that tenancies are multi-faceted & initially quite intensive, we believe we are suitably forearmed to safeguard, what is often, your biggest asset. Please feel free to call us for a free, no obligation chat about your requirements or indeed, any aspect of residential lettings.
We look forward to speaking to you.
Mike McDonnell was extremely professional and helpful with showing me a flat, and helping me through the application process.

They'll go out of their way to do everything they can for you.
Pleasure to work with!
