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

  • 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.


    Mat | Boscombe

  • Hi, I would like you to add to your testimonials a few words from me. I have been a Tenant for more than six years and would like to say thanks from my heart for the chance I got to keep my flat when I was in a bad situation due to an injury etc.I have been helped in many ways by Dave Wells properties and their wonderfull staff and got myself back on track.Thanks Michelle for rushing to my aid when I came out of hospital. All the negative things I’ve heard about Dave Wells properties is not true if you respect them and your property you will have a wonderful experience.



  • 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

  • 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

  • Michelle and the team have been fantastic. So friendly and have kept me informed throughout the whole process of moving.


    Laine Grew | Boscombe

  • 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 the maintenance team. In particular Michele, who has dealt with us continuously with a cheerful manner.


    Christopher Rose | Poole

  • 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

  • We are tenants with DWP Housing and are very happy with the service provided and have recently had some work done by the maintenance team we were extremely happy with Roy Duff who couldn’t do enough for us.


    Allana Sykes | Parkstone

  • We are very pleased with our new kitchen, Ben did an amazing job could you please pass this on to Shane Wells, it ís the best job we’ve ever had done thanks a lot.
