Tenants and landlords headed the queue when lettings agent Northwood opened its new office in Reading's London Street last Monday.

But even the tea and cake on offer to all visitors was outweighed by the company's genuine 'guaranteed rent to landlords' scheme which ensures a fixed monthly income, with no set-up fees or hidden extras.

Brian 'Mitch' Mitchison, who runs and owns the Reading office, said: "Although able to spend time today thanking those folks who helped bring the office into being, I have been quite busy explaining the service to potential landlords and showing how we can help them let their property in a genuinely low risk way.Ultimately, we are here to make the rental process as easy and successful as possible for both landlords and tenants."
