Residential Lettings branch

14 Plymouth Road Tavistock Devon PL19 8AY

Locally and nationally, the private rental sector is growing at a very fast pace with many buy-to-let landlords looking to capitalise on some excellent investment opportunities. Mansbridge Balment can now offer a similar high quality service to that of the sales teams. The Mansbridge Balment Lettings team will provide a bespoke service for landlords and tenants ranging from a ‘finder’ service to a fully managed operation.

Here at Mansbridge Balment Lettings, we like to take the stress away from landlords and help prospective tenants find the best property to suit them and their needs. Everyone is different, therefore an individual approach is needed to best serve the needs of landlords and tenants. Mansbridge Balment Lettings work alongside our residential sales teams to provide a high quality service to both.


Opening hours:

Monday to Friday 9am – 5.30pm

Email hotline 24 hours a day – 7 days a week

Residential Lettings branch case studies


Kerry Murdoch my letting agent was very professional, knowledgeable and engaged. The property view was done safely during lockdown in November. Kerry was kind and told me about the area in detail. I put an offer in the same day that was accepted. Thanks Kerry


The service we received in letting our property was efficient, professional and friendly. Carla, Ali and Kerry were a pleasure to work with!


Friendly, helpful, timely and efficient service provided by the team at Mansbridge Balment, despite challenges of lockdown and Christmas/New Year. Thanks


Brilliant service and very professional, everything was done and completed on time and they were excellent and they sorted everything even though we are in lockdown


Ali & Carla in lettings, made for a swift and easy process in finding and moving into a new property in lockdown.


Both Ali and Carla have been absolutely brilliant in helping with a very difficult tenant. Nothing has been too much trouble and I am extremely grateful for all their help and support. As a landlord I would highly recommend this office for great service. _*Comment on agent fees*_ Perfectly acceptable


Ali, Carla and team at Mansbridge letting, You listened to my requirements made good suggestions and found me the ideal tenant , thank you PB _Comment on agent fees_ The fee seem to be the going rate

Mary Ogg

Made me feel I was the only person that mattered - always responded to queries ASAP- very clear giving honest information - happy atmosphere - nothing too much trouble - can't praise them enough


Carla and Ali were extremely friendly and helpful but professional too. I had to finish my tenancy early due to a family crisis and they couldn't have been more kind.

We have now used this agency several times to find and put in place new tenants for us. The staff are always right on it and have looked after us and our new tenants exceptionally well. We would not hesitate to recommend them if you are looking for a professional agency as a landlord. Comment on agent fees Fair


I couldn't recommend Carla and Ali highly enough. Both ladies are professional, efficient, friendly and helpful. They made me feel like nothing was ever too much for them. Comment on agent fees Very fair price

Very Happy Client

Every single member of staff was knowledgable, professional, helpful and courteous at all times. Everyone worked together as a team and were extremely supportive during stressful moments. Just fantastic from beginning to end. Comment on agent fees Fine


My wife & I let our rurally located 3 bedroom house over a period of 11 years during which time we used a number of Tavistock based letting Agents. We found Mansbridge Balment Lettings (the agents we have used for the past 4 years) easily the best. They were the only agents who made us feel as though we were their client rather than the tenant - the other agents all seemed to put us on the back foot when dealing with any problems always seeming to view the problem from the tenants perspective. Whilst fairness was never an issue it was nice to feel our interests were the prime concern. All of the staff we dealt over the 4 year period were extremely professional, very thorough & very personable & we have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for a quality service. Comment on agent fees As we live abroad we used the full management service & felt the charges for the amount of work done to be very reasonable.

Harrow Cottage

I have found all of the Lettings team, including Carla Denley, to be professional, friendly and able. I am happy to have them manage my rental property for me Comment on agent fees Fees were very fair for the work and effort involved


Excellent customer service, personalised to our needs. Carla always has a positive, cheerful attitude and this shines through in her work. She shows that she cares about delivering the best outcomes for us and that makes a real difference. Would definitely recommend this company and ... read full review Comment on agent fees Agents Fees are competitively priced and Ali was very thorough in presenting how the company could support us in letting our property.

My experience with M&B has been excellent. Firstly via Martyn Cox of OKEHAMPTON BRANCH in connection with a purchase and latterly with Leisa and Carla regarding letting of the same property. They have all been business-like and helpful and am very happy with the service received to-date. Comment on agent fees realistic in todays market.


Very trustworthy, fair and friendly. They were very understanding and kind about my elderly cat. Any maintenance problems dealt with quickly.


My experiences with Mansbridge and Balment have always been very positive. Any problem has been dealt with swiftly and professionally. Comment on agent fees Fees charged are competitive and fair.


We have been renting across the country for more than 25 years now, we have experienced the good, the bad (and the downright ugly) in letting agents and we can say without a shadow of a doubt that the team at MB are brilliant. Really friendly, helpful and responsive to our needs. We are absolutely delighted to give them 5 stars, they actually deserve 6, and cannot imagine a nicer team.


I have been dealing with this agent since early 2017 and have always found them to be very helpful with my needs. I recommend their services. Comment on agent fees I think the fees are in keeping with other agents.


Moving in to Tavistock from abroad is made easy by Mansbridge balment. From the first moment on they thought along, came up with ideas and guided us though the process of letting a house. all is done in a very friendly way, no matter witch member of staff is helping you.


As a long distance landlord I had to rely on them to get the house ready to let and to manage it. This was carried out very successfully. The tradesmen they use are very reasonable on price. After letting out for a while I decided to sell. Again this was carried out quickly and professionally. I had no hesitation in using them again to sort out another property for me. Comment on agent fees Average


In purchasing my house and its subsequent let as a long term rental, Carla has been efficient, friendly and thorough in all my dealings with her! An excellent job! Comment on agent fees In line with the rest of the local agents, but better because they inspect my rental property more times a year.

Beattie & Mansfield

Leisa and her Lettings Team are always approachable, professional and easy to deal with. Leisa, particularly, will always 'go the extra mile' to help - the more so when we were recently selling the property and, for example, Leisa organized quotes for work and carried out final meter readings for us even after the last tenants had left. Comment on agent fees Always represent good value given the 'extra mile' and 'can do' attitude demonstrated by Leisa and her team. Admin is always spot on.

Professional & Knowledgeable

We have just let our property and throughout the whole process the team have been professional, knowledgeable and very informative guiding us through. Nothing was ever too much trouble and we felt we could ask all the questions we needed to. They have reassured us throughout and we feel comfortable that our property is being managed by their safe hands. Comment on agent fees Competitive fees
