As a private landlord we have built our portfolio over the years from the first small house we bought in Poole in 1985, to the portfolio we have today of over 3000 units.

All our properties are managed by us, employing more than 100 staff, the business offers a number of different in-house services; we have a dedicated maintenance department, a team of professional lettings advisors and staff specialising in debt management and financial support. Everything you need under one roof, ultimately, we want our tenants to be happy in their homes!

Moving home can be a costly affair, so we aim to keep the costs down by offering the lowest admin fees in the area.

  • We have rented with DWP for 6 months and have found the staff and personnel very courteous and helpful and efficient. Any minor problems were quickly sorted out by maintenance team. In particular Michele, who has dealt with us continuously with a cheerful manner.

  • Just to Holla a message of my thanks for the recent refurb of the shared bathroom at my place in Borthwick Rd, Boscombe….Speaking as a high-end painter n decorator myself, its good to see all concerned delivering a very professional finish. My thanks to the lads who done it and to DWP for investing into the well being and comfort of your tenants. This for me is where the ‘social housing’ end of the market meets the posher end and bridges important gaps.

  • My experience are and they were always very, very good. One lady – Michele Field she was always; very professional and helpful. Many times she resolved any problems with a smile, she was never angry. We would recommend DWP Housing Partnership and Michele, because in our opinion she is the best! The right person, in the right place. Professional and human!
