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

  • During the two years I have been a tenant of DWP I found the office staff always very helpful, particulary Michelle and Becks. They are an asset and compassionate and professional these two ladies are a credit to the company.

    Andrew Look | Bournemouth

  • DWP have always been extremely helpful and fantastic landlords. I have recommended them to several people. Any problems with a room or a house are dealt with quickly and the staff are always friendly and helpful.


    Natasha | 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

  • 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

  • Danny was brilliant. So friendly and worked well. He is a credit to your team. Thank you.


    Sally | Bournemouth

  • 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

  • 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

  • Very good and I would like to say a big thank you to Michelle and all at DWP Housing for my lovely home with new bathroom, carpets, flooring and all new paintwork not forgetting the pretty net curtains!
