Professional residential lettings and property management for Bushey and the local area
The Home Management Company was established in 1986 in Bushey Village. Our core values – integrity, professionalism and lasting relationships – are at the heart of everything we do, and all part of the expertise and experience that is produced from almost 30 years in the business.
The company grew steadily at first, adding to its portfolio of properties in Bushey Heath, Bushey Village, Oxhey Village and Watford – largely ‘homes’ in the early days, while the owners lived and worked abroad.
With the introduction of the Housing Act 1988 which became law in January 1989, the market grew rapidly, but a different type of landlord began to emerge. The recession encouraged owners to let properties they were unable to sell, and with the protection of the new housing act, they felt confident with their decision.
The low interest rates of the late nineties and a new initiative inspired by A.R.L.A (The Association of Residential Letting Agents) gave birth to the ‘Buy to Let’ concept. A panel of mortgage lenders joined with A.R.L.A and actively encouraged borrowers with attractive incentives and repayment schedules, never before conceived.
To be successful, careful choices needed to be made when entering the market, but this new long term investment plan appealed to many. Another type of landlord now emerged, boosting hugely the number of properties available for rent. The ever-changing and expanding market of rental properties has required constant fine tuning of the services being offered, as without doubt, the market has become very complex and competitive.
