We would like to think that when you are looking to rent a property through Walker Smale, you will find that we have a friendly and fair approach and that we will take time to understand your situation and what you are looking for.

The rental side of the business is generally looked after by Michael Smale and his wife, Karen and aided by a small but dedicated team of people behind the scenes. This enables us to provide a personal service for our clients (the Landlords) but at the same time our tenants get to know us personally as well.

Having been in business now for over 25 years, we have let and managed many properties, from the Ilkley end of the Wharfe Valley, through Otley, passing Bramhope and all the way into Leeds, with our West Park Office being ideally situated to easily cover areas such as Adel, West Park, Headingley, Horsforth, Cookridge, Chapel Allerton, Meanwood and Kirkstall etc.

We have invested in the latest software to maintain accurate records and provide a secure payments system so that you can rest assured that your money is safe with Walker Smale, and to ring fence that further we are members of CMP (Client Money Protection). Our referencing partner RentProfile helps us process new tenancy applications swiftly and compliantly and we have received really positive feedback from tenants as to how efficient the system is.

So, if you find a property you want to rent through us, and everything goes to plan, you can have confidence that we will do our best to make your move a smooth one and your time in our clients property as trouble free as possible.

Of course, things can go wrong from time to time, that’s life, but rest assured we will always do our best to help get things back on track.
