Franchise Details


Property Franchise UK Belvoir

Be with BelvoirOver the years Belvoir has grown dramatically and is now the UK’s largest property franchise on the high-street with over 300 offices nationwide. At Belvoir, we want to create a long-term business prospect and true to this our first ever franchisee is still with us 22 years on. Our offices are owned by local individuals who have an aspirational nature with clear goals in mind but have the advantage of being part of a nationally recognised brand, operating under a successful business model. As a Belvoir franchise owner, this is what will set you apart from the rest.

Founded in 1995 by Mike and Stephanie Goddard in Lincolnshire, Belvoir was built upon the foundations of Mike’s RAF values of customer service, professionalism and specialism. The business swiftly became a franchise operation in 1996 when our first office opened in Moray, Scotland. With Mike’s encouragement and enthusiasm, Belvoir are full members of the British Franchise Association (bfa) who focus on fair and ethical trading.

Under the skilful leadership of Dorian Gonsalves (now Chief Operating Officer), Belvoir became the first specialist residential lettings agency to launch on AIM of the London Stock Exchange in February 2012.

The Belvoir Opportunity

We understand that choosing the right franchise opportunity can be a lengthy process, so we aim to provide as much information as possible from the beginning.

When buying a Belvoir franchise not only are you getting an award winning business opportunity, you are buying a territory to trade within, a well-established brand name and a tried and tested business model.

On joining Belvoir, you will become a member of our business family and when you need it, you can enjoy the support and guidance of everyone else within the network. Following your discovery day, we will provide you will a list of all our franchise owners, allowing you to discuss and discover the real opportunity available. We will have to source a potential territory and consider your plans for growth in the future, whether you are taking on a fresh territory or considering a resale opportunity.

Belvoir offers a number of opportunities with many now expanding into the buy-to-let market and a number of our offices offering a successful sales service. Encouragingly a few of our franchisees’ have been inspired by the acquisitions route and successfully expanded their own portfolio, using Belvoir’s Assisted Acquisition Scheme.

“We work for each other, for the benefit of all of us.”
Terry Lucking of Belvoir Peterborough and Cambridge

“Renting as a lifestyle choice is going to increase
and if people have a good experience they keep using Belvoir.”
Simon Bell of Belvoir Telford

Being part of a recognised and reputable brand will provide your business with the very best chance of growing and succeeding during the first crucial years and beyond. In 2016 Belvoir has been named Lettings Franchise of the Year for a record sixth time and this is down to the high standards of training and exceptional support which contributes to the success of our franchisees.

Premises and Marketing

Our recruitment team will work with you to find the perfect office to meet your budget and requirements in the best location. The shop fit design has been carefully developed to enhance the landlord and tenant experience with a contemporary and distinctive finish.

“My competitors are quite aggressive in their marketing and I think this
new office definitely helps to set me apart, and at a higher level than them.”
Martin Unsworth of Belvoir Liverpool South

belvoirAlthough you will be running your own local Belvoir office, being part of a national company with a powerful corporate brand means you can benefit from the many marketing initiatives that are constantly being developed on your behalf. Franchise owners contribute 1% of their monthly turnover to the National Promotional Fund which is spent in conjunction with them to ensure the best marketing is put together to promote your business.

Belvoir Fees

We believe in total transparency with regards to fees. The initial franchise fee is £22,500 plus VAT which covers training, start-up, initial support, Business Development Manager visits, training plan and retail premises. Taking into consideration the fees and working capital, we estimate that most franchise owners will require an initial investment of £150,000 -£200,000. This figure will vary depending upon your location. The good news is that 70% of this average investment amount can usually be borrowed from the bank (subject to normal terms and conditions). As the average overall investment is around £150,000-£200,000, you will need to raise 30% of this from your own funds.
