Pymm & Co merge with MPJ Property Solutions

Written by Lily Stroud-Li-Rocchi

Strengthening lettings in Norwich

We are proud and excited to announce that MPJ Property Solutions Ltd have merged their letting business with Pymm & Co, to trade under the single banner of Pymm & Co. In this ever-changing world where the government keeps moving the goalposts for both landlords, tenants and agents, it has been increasingly difficult for small businesses to remain competitive.

The new tenant fee ban, which is passing through parliament as we speak will radically reduce the income available to letting agents and many smaller letting agents may not be able to weather the storm, however by merging our two great local businesses, we will be able to not only weather this particular storm but will help us to be a stronger, more cohesive business in the future.

Change is coming

Suffice to say that serious changes are being forced on the lettings industry over the coming months for landlords, tenants and agents and this could undoubtedly push up rents and fees in the future. This will increase the compliance requirements put upon landlords and agents but by joining forces it is hoped that the impact of these changes can be minimised as much as possible.

That the last few years have seen the greatest changes that have affected landlords; the changes to the taxation of interest relief, the new requirements for EPC’S and Legionnaires disease checks to name just a few and the new tenant fee ban soon to be implemented, not to mention the other new ideas the government has for the future. Much like MPJ, we care about our landlords and tenants and hold an ethical approach to running our business, to help us continue through these changes that are fast approaching or already taking place.

A new dawn for Pymm & Co Lettings

Since the 1st of October our Property Management team has grown in number with the welcomed addition of Julie, Marcel and Raquel to our property management team and we couldn’t be happier. A month on and we can certainly say we are one big happy family and as a team are working harder than ever to make sure that all our landlords and tenants are happy and cared for.

A Word from Stuart Monument, Director of Lettings

“With the impending legislation changes to the Lettings industry it is important to make sure you are with a sustainable letting agent. This legislative change is going to impact all agents and sadly it will cause smaller businesses to struggle and potentially close. It’s more important than ever for us prove our worth as an agent and to show value to potential and existing landlord. Here at Pymm & Co we are doing just that by expanding our current portfolio with the purchase of MPJ Property Solutions. We have retained the majority of MPJ’s staff, making sure we can deal with queries and tasks quickly and efficiently. The key to success in this current market is sustainability and consistency. We aim to provide a consistent high level of service to our tenants and landlords to make sure everyone is well looked after. We’re over the moon about our merge and are very happy to welcome our new members of staff and the landlords and tenants they bring with them! We are well placed for the future and continue to grow year on year.”
