Local knowledge, national reach

Our local experts have a national reach with more than 90 Northwood offices across the UK. Founded in 1995, Northwood has operated as part of the Belvoir Group since 2016.

We provide all the normal range of estate agency services of sales, lettings and property management but it’s our guaranteed rent scheme that provides a market-leading offer that sets us apart from the competition.

Operating the right type of business in the right area is important. So that means a particular brand may fare better in certain areas. With this mind, all franchisees are offered the right opportunity for not only the territory they plan to operate in, but for the person and their aspirations – and we’ll work with you to establish which brand is better suited to you, your area and your business plan.

The Northwood key point of difference is our guaranteed rent scheme. Over 20,000 landlords enjoy the security that comes with it – we effectively become the tenant and become responsible for all compliance and rental payments – so when a landlord’s property is empty, our landlords still receive a steady income. This really sets us apart from our competitors, and makes Northwood a strong brand for local markets that have a high volume of rental properties.
