City letting agent acquired by Countrywide

Popular city letting agency Lighthouse has been purchased by national letting chain Countrywide UK.

Lighthouse Property Services, situated on Carholme Road, specialises in lettings for both students and private tenants.

The changes to the company will be put into effect immediately, but the company insists that for tenants and landlords, the usual service will remain unchanged.

Lighthouse’s Managing Director Tim Clark said: “Lighthouse is a very well-respected and long-established business and by joining forces with Countrywide, the primary aim is to ensure a strong sense of local expertise is maintained, combined with the benefits of Countrywide’s branch support services.

“Day-to-day management and responsibility will remain with the existing Lighthouse team.”

Countrywide has been managing lettings nationally for 25 years, and currently helps over 500,000 landlords and tenants every year.

The award-winning company also operates via 46 other local high street letting agencies.

Any tenants or landlords with questions regarding the acquisition can contact Lighthouse on 01522 780020 or email them.
