We value all of our tenancies; without them, we wouldn’t exist. We believe when you rent your home it is exactly that, your home and as such, we work with both yourself and the landlord to ensure you feel comfortable and relaxed so that you can enjoy your time. The main role of a letting agent is to manage properties for private landlords. Responsibilities range from sourcing tenants and collecting rent, to full responsibility and management.


We want to help you find your ideal rental property and have a range of rental properties available across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole. In order to register your interest in becoming a tenant with MK Estates please contact one of our branches. There is often high demand for properties so you may have to join our waiting list.

Should problems arise we will deal with them quickly and efficiently. We choose to work with like-minded landlords who provide quality properties and maintain them.

Deposit – Your deposit will be protected by The Deposit Protection Service. You will be advised of your reference number and confirmation of registration within 14 days of the tenancy start date.

Inventory – Upon moving into the property you will be given an Inventory Report. We would advise that you look through this document thoroughly, make any necessary changes and submit it to us within 7 days. If you don’t return the inventory with any amendments within the 7 days specified, it will be taken that you agree to the full content of the Inventory.

Utilities – You are responsible for the full payment of all utilities associated with the property unless otherwise stated, and it is the responsibility of tenants to ensure you read the meters and inform the utility companies of your occupancy.

Insurance – You are advised to insure all your own possessions with contents insurance, prior to commencement of the tenancy. You will not be able to make claims against the landlord's insurance for damaged, or stolen items.

Please Note:

In order to proceed with a tenancy application you will need to provide photographic identification for ALL parties over the age of 18 who will be residing in the property. In order to satisfy the referencing you will need to provide proof of residency at the current address, this can be a utility bill/council tax bill from within the last 3 months, proof of income in the form of employer confirmation or bank statements/payslips, and a previous landlord reference. You will also need to be earning 30x the monthly rent per annum to pass the affordability.

All of our referencing and signing is online. In order to do this we will need an email address for each applicant.

We only accept payment via Bank Transfer or Cash.
