What do our tenants have to say about us.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • When we had nowhere to go and no chance of succeeding anywhere, DWP took us in. Ever since day one they have been fantastic. The guys on the desks at the front are amazing and have always been so approachable. Not once had a problem in our dealings with them. We appreciate all the help and if you are after a property they look after you. Thank you to the team!
