An East Yorkshire property management company is expanding its operations following a boom in property lettings.

Just three years after launching, AJD Properties is opening new centres in Hessle and Pocklington and taking on more staff.

The business has been praised by Hull West MP and former Home Secretary Alan Johnson who said it was an excellent example of Hull’s entrepreneurial spirit.

“The success of AJD Properties is well deserved especially as the business was launched in the depths of a recession,” said Mr Johnson.

“It demonstrates what can be achieved with a can-do attitude and its success has helped to generate a supply of affordable rental properties for people in Hull and East Yorkshire.”

Mr Johnson, who performed the official launch of the business three years ago returned to open the new office in Hull Road, Hessle.

AJD Properties Managing Director Adrian Dawson said a buoyant property market in Hull and East Yorkshire had led to the expansion which was creating two new jobs.

“There has been a surge of interest in investment properties and we are handling large portfolios of rental properties from big investors as well as an increasing number of  small landlords, many of whom are new to the market.

“We have expanded into Pocklington to meet growing demand there for property management services. We are finding that rental properties in both Pocklington and Market Weighton are much sought after as they often offer better value for tenants than homes in York.

“We have also added a domestic and commercial property sales service following requests from our landlords to provide a fully comprehensive service for them.”

Mr Dawson added: “There continues to be growing demand for good rental properties throughout Hull and East Yorkshire. More people are turning to property investment to generate income or replace traditional pension investments.

“We are providing attractive to new and experienced investors because our service is designed make the rental process trouble free for landlords as well as finding tenants the best quality properties.

“We take the burden away from landlords and provide a fully comprehensive service from finding tenants, carrying out credit and character checks, collection of rents and arranging property repairs. So far it’s a winning formula.”
