A note from our Owner

Mark Harrington

Mark Harrington was born and raised in Brighton so has a wealth of knowledge on the area and has been in the property industry since 1983. His knowledge of the property market, lettings and acquisitions is second to none.

Mark spent the first ten years of his career as a legal executive in a solicitor’s office. He worked for three different companies gaining a wide knowledge of all legal matters. The training took him through all aspects of the legal world and eventually specialised in conveyancing. Mark’s understanding of all matters legal when it comes to landlord and tenant are extensive. Not only since his solicitor days but also having been in business since 1993. There isn’t a law that we don’t advise our landlords of whenever they come out. In 1993 Mark started Harringtons Lettings and over the years has worked tirelessly to ensure Harringtons Lettings provide a first class service to all of our customers and clients.

Mark now works full time in the Acquisitions Department. Mark has purchased in excess of 400-500 properties over the years for clients mainly dealing with investments but also developments. This extends not only to residential but commercial property and continues to do so. He advises clients on the local market and would class himself as a local market expert. He continues to make offers on behalf of clients and purchase long term properties for them all over the Brighton and Hove and Sussex area. Mark's passion has always been to purchase properties on behalf of clients. Mark oversees the overall group and ensures that the business is moving forward in this ever changing industry.

Mark owns an insurance company as well as Harringtons. This is known as iInsure 365. It is now run by Charlotte Skinner who has worked for Mark in excess of 15 years. She has a comprehensive knowledge of the insurance industry and iInsure 365 have huge amounts of property under cover in excess of a billion pound. Our insurance department can cover anything from landlords insurance, purpose built insurance, lessee’s insurance, freeholders insurance, commercial insurance and a lot more so don’t hesitate to contact them on 01273 827090.

We have recently open up a new department, property management. Mark used to manage in excess of 70 buildings some considerable time ago. But it was decided to concentrate just on lettings. However, clients have asked so many times over many years for him to take on management of properties because of poor management by previous managing agents. We are currently in the process of opening up a dedicated department for this and it will be incorporated within the Harringtons group.

About Us

Since Harringtons Lettings was started, we have established a name for providing landlords and tenants with a comprehensive and efficient service. We are independently owned which means the advice we offer is always impartial and based only on what’s best for you. We pride ourselves on being able to offer the highest levels of service to our Landlords and Tenants.

Our knowledge of the local market is absolutely second to none and because we do not do any form of Estate agency we are able to fully concentrate on just dealing with Lettings. The lettings market has had in excess of 127 laws over the last 5 years so it is extremely important for our landlords and tenants that we are totally legally compliant. We advise all of our landlords on the day to day laws that they must follow so there is never any legal issues.

We cover a wide area across Sussex to include Brighton, Hove, Portslade, Shoreham, Worthing, Lewes, Peacehaven, Seaford, Newhaven and Eastbourne. We are also able to offer management across the whole of the UK, if required.

We are proud members of the Property Redress Scheme. This is a scheme whereby if people are unhappy they have the ability to have an independent company adjudicate on their behalf. We have never had any compliant upheld against us which we are extremely proud of. Obviously, we wouldn’t at any point want anyone to make a complaint so we work hard to try and resolve any issues immediately.

All lettings agents now have to be part of a Client Money Protection Scheme we are pleased to confirm that we are also. This means that landlords and tenants are covered in the event that any fraud took place.

Our Team

Our knowledgeable and enthusiastic team combine traditional marketing with the very latest technology, going to extraordinary lengths to match our landlord’s properties to all potential tenants. Many of the team have worked for Harringtons for almost a decade and provide a genuine, friendly and pro-active approach. The team are all local and have a vast knowledge on local amenities, transport links, universities and schools.

We are in the process of expanding our current team having taken a lot more property for landlords. We are very much looking forward to new people arriving and working through the training for the Harringtons way. It’s so important to Mark that all of our staff are fully trained, have some form of experience and learn everyday in the office. There is no-one including Mark himself that does not on a daily basis learn more about the industry so we can help landlords at any point. Our local independent knowledge is second to none and we cover the whole of Brighton and Hove. Whilst our office is in Hangleton our online presence is exceptional with 96% of tenants now looking to the internet to find property. We pride ourselves on ensuring that tenants are able to see us at any point and landlords know that they are getting the enquiries that they deserve.

Our Brand

Our unique marketing makes us stand out from the crowd, generating many enquiries for our landlords properties. With bold To Let signage, prominent advertising both locally and on national property websites such as Rightmove, Zoopla and OnTheMarket. We give our landlords’ properties the best chance of coming to the attention of the right tenant.

We pay for additional adverts that many other letting agents don’t have and all of our time is spent on tenants and landlords, not selling properties. Everyone in the office is able to deal with any part of the lettings at any point and it is very important to us that if landlords need advice they can obtain it from everyone.

We are proud to be one of the original lettings agents within Brighton and Hove.  Our commitment to excellence is forever thriving to ensure that tenants and landlords have the best possible service.

I'm in a difficult situation at the moment with my landlord wanting to sell the flat that myself and my 3 children have been living in for 7 years. I came across Harringtons Viewings by applying to view some properties outside of my area.Unfortunately I haven't been able to sort anything with Harringtons, however I wanted to write this to say that they have been nothing but kind, warm and very understanding of my situation. I've been really impressed by their customer service (namely Georgie & Beth) and hope that they are able to find me something eventually!Thanks so much.Yasmin

Harringtons have been incredibly helpful and supportive of us as new renters and they have been super efficient in getting all of the documents sent through and signed in such a short period of time. Thank you!

we chose this letting agents as they chose a good bills company that is much cheaper than other agents. When viewing houses the staff were very friendly and have been very helpful in answering our questions and making the process as easy as possible.

Although I have only been renting with Harringtons for a short period of time, I have had nothing but a positive experience. From viewing to admin updates. The admin team especially are very polite and quick to respond and I have no doubt that the rest of my tenancy will run smoothly. I would recommend to anyone considering renting in brighton.

Professional communication with tenant although entirely impersonal. There was a bigger disconnect in their communication with the landlord in most cases, which seemed to be either slow or non-existent (discovered after contacting the landlord directly).Property was full of spider webs on day 1 despite apparently being professionally cleaned. Took a day off of work to clean it on move out day, leaving it cleaner than when it received but still had to pay part of the deposit for professional cleaning.It has been a while since I have rented, but I'll avoid letting agencies completely now if this is anything close to the average renting experience.

I have rented with Harringtons Lettings before and have always found the agents to be quick, efficient, friendly and helpful. I loved their service so much I have chosen to rent with Harringtons again. Faultless 😊
