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.

BASED IN BOURNEMOUTH, DORSET

  • DWP were really helpful and caring when I needed to transfer from the Winton area to Charminster, especially Bex who could not have done anymore and has always gone that extra mile.


    Emma Randall | Charminster

  • DWP Housing have always been very helpful and kind if ever I had to get in touch with them, any issues were dealt with promptly.


    Judith Kelf | Bournemouth

  • Excellent and very efficient.


    J.Hudson | Boscombe

  • Can I just say a huge thanks to Michele and team for the help and support helping me moving back down from up north even going the extra mile and letting me move in on a weekend after the office hours, it just shows the service I got was above the duty and so glad to become a tenant of DWP.


    Paul Brown | Winton

  • I can’t say anything but good things about this landlord. Even when stuff was difficult they gave me a chance…thanks Mike, Sally and the team. Even when I got into serious rent arrears you were able to help sort a payment plan. So much so I left with my full deposit which shocked us all. Keep doing good stuff and thanks for the chance.


    Isha | Bournemouth

  • After hearing so many bad reports about DWP I was very hesitant with going with yourselves. Everything I had heard was unfounded. Bex and Jo really looked after me well and are a real asset to DWP. All I wanted was to be treated how I like to be treated and I was. I am very happy!!


    Deborah | Boscombe

  • Found the right place to suit my needs in no time! At the move in found few problems but these were addressed straight away and the team were consistently there checking up if everything is OK. Amazed at help; furniture, advice, paperwork was all done by DWP. Massive thank you to my agent Rachelle, Plumbers Danny and Scott, Electricians Rich and his dad and a big thank you to Laurence and Hannah.


    Daria Bennett | Aylesbury Road

  • This is my third move the first two were with private landlords this is the first time I’ve been treated as a person and not just someone renting. I cannot stress enough how excellent a team you have and I would highly recommend you.


    Gary Stratton | Calendula Place

  • Dear DWP, many thanks for arranging the boiler repair visit and thanks for fixing door latch quickly. Staff sent, very quick and efficient.


    Michael | Bournemouth

  • DWP found me a property really quickly, much less than I was paying in private sector. Staff very polite and helpful, so grateful.
