Renting Properties Since 2006
Where Experience, Knowledge & Expertise really makes a difference…
Move On Sales & Lettings was founded in 2006 by Sharon Canning: a local expert in all things property letting and sales, with a wealth of experience in the industry. Sharon has over 30 years of experience in lettings, as well as being a private landlord for 38 years. She spent three years travelling the UK training letting agents, as well as completing a four-year accountancy course before starting Move On in 2006.
Sharon has become a leading expert in the property industry and likes to share her knowledge as the Q&A expert for House magazine, as well as having had her own weekly slot on our local HOPE FM radio dedicated to the industry.
Landlord To Landlord Sales is Sharon’s innovative idea of matching landlords across the country. It is an online estate agency for landlords and landlords only – but with a twist. Outgoing landlords receive rent up until the day of completion, and new landlords receive rent from day one. For more information on Landlord 2 Landlord Sales, click here.

We ensure that our staff members are regularly trained and kept up-to-date on any changes to Government legislation regarding sales and lettings. Regular contact and strong customer service are what we strive for; keeping lines of communication open between landlords, agents, and tenants at all times.
MOVE ON aims to secure the best quality tenants for their clients and endeavours to ensure that the property is looked after, and the rent paid on time for the duration of the tenancy. We are also quick to efficiently deal with any maintenance problems.
MOVE ON believes a stress-free tenancy can be obtained by listening, communicating, and caring.
