About Yourgaff lettings

Before you decide to rent with Yourgaff or decide to work with us as a landlord or investor, it’s only fair to know a bit about us so here we go!

Yourgaff Lettings started in December, 2019 as an online letting agency for students and professionals. We started the company after graduating from the University of Chester aged 23 and 22. From our own personal experiences, we realised the Chester letting industry was missing something, something that we didn’t get when we were students. We found that their was massive miscommunications between what landlords think tenants want and what tenants actually want! Gone are the days where the cheapest rent gets you tenants. Tenants want to live in nice gaffs, not a shed!

So, we started contacting landlords which we believed would be interested in our services. Our aim is  to be the bridge between landlords and tenants as we understand the language of students and professionals. Through first-hand experience of living in some very bad and very good gaffs, we have become the relatable, understanding team that our tenants are comfortable to discussing issues and concerns with their gaff. Meaning we are effectively able to advise and guide landlords on everything from complete renovations to small moderations.

In October, 2020 we opened our office at 9 Lower Bridge Street, in the heart of Chester City Centre.

We have been successful in helping landlords find the perfect tenants and helping students, international students and professionals find their perfect home away from home.

We have a high success rate and testimonies, reviews and feedback received which shows that our landlords are happy with our services and a high majority of our tenants are happy in their new gaffs.

We are the only letting agency in Chester that is committed to working with a select number of landlords in order to provide a bespoke and personalised service to both landlords and tenants. This means our team is able to build strong relationships with our landlords and tenants as we have more time to focus on you! We understand everyone has different wants, needs and budgets so our bespoke services mean we can help you find exactly what you are looking for. We really care about all our landlords and tenants and we want to ensure everyone is happy with the services they receive from Yourgaff.

Tolulope Founder

My name is Tolulope but everyone knows me as Tolu. I’m one the Founder of Yourgaff. As a recent graduate in 2019 I studied LLB Law with Criminology.

One of the reasons why I founded Yourgaff was was because after 3 years at University of Chester, I felt there was a lot missing in the letting industry in Chester such as effective communications between landlords and tenants.

I have a few roles in the company such as conducting viewings, checking contracts, keeping up to date with all legal requirements and making sure residents and clients are happy with our service.

Proud to have received such positive feedback…

Sorted my Accommodation out for my final year of uni even though I left it till the last minute. They found me what I wanted within my price range .

The best place in Chester for unbiased letting advice. Tailored for the Student market, Tolu and his team are always looking for the best standards in the market.

House hunting has never been an easy task. got disappointed by various letting agencies, but YourGaff made me forget all that and put a big smile on my face. Looked at just one property, and fell totally in love. i must say, the house looks way better than i saw it online.

mostly, i must thank Tolu for being very helpful and welcoming, oh, and thank u Jess! Customer service is a 100.
