How are Harringtons different to other agents?
Harringtons Lettings are one of the only independent specialist letting agents in Brighton and Hove. By purely focusing on lettings they are able to guarantee an expert, consistent, quality and transparent service to all landlords and tenants. They ensure their clients’ service is never jeopardised by having designated members of staff dealing with certain aspects of the business.

Why do Harringtons stand out from other agents?
They require every tenant to have a guarantor to ensure that the rent is paid, and if there are any other problems then they have a direct contact to liaise with. They have been doing this for many years and it means that they do not often deal with arrears – and it also ensures landlords are covered for any eventuality whilst keeping their costs low.
