Planning on renting my first home, found a property that looked great. Was waiting on a young woman to contact the current tenants for a viewing this Saturday and no one has got back to me, I have tried contacting three times for an update and no answer/reply. Not sure how I can rely on them arranging a house for me if they are incapable of answering a phone, replying to an email or even arranging a viewing. So far they have made this a stressful experience. Will avoid these at all costs whe...

I previously rented a property through Blundells, they did not really help with the process of moving. It took longer than we expected to move in and I had to do all the chasing up, as they never called me. I was satisfied with very few services I received. Some of the work that needed to be done such as the mould we had never happened. Then after leaving the property and talking to Blundells which seemed very unsure as to what I was to do about getting my bond back they told me I had to get cal...

The agents fees we had to pay was overpriced, as we had look at may others that were lower. I wouldn't have minded paying so much if they were actually any good.

I'm quite shocked at how terrible a rating these agents have in the botom ten in the UK??? Wow. Anyway, I thought I'd have my say, I had a very a positive experience dealing with them when I bought my property. When contacting them to view properties at very short notice(one even an hour before I viewed) they were very accommodating and helpful, arranging viewings exactly when I wanted them. I was not living in sheffield when looking for properties so i managed to see many within a short space ...

I previously rented a property through blundells, I was satisfied with most services I received. Although work or minor repairs that needed doing on the house failed to ever be carried out. (Eg carpets cleaned, oven overall cleaning of the housing when moved in). Then when I left the property and went to get my bond back, Hillsbourgh lettings forwarded me on to their property management where they deal with returning the bond. I am currently going to dispute with my bond and need all the eviden...

Comment on agent fees
The landlord was terrible any compliments about minor faults where never carried out! A verbal promise to "clean the carpets" was never carried out and now that's trying to be taken from the bond I placed down. The heating dial never got mended. The lino was scratched from previous tenant as cat decoration was horrid. Wasn't aloud to make the house feel homily. No nails or anything to even hang a mirror up. It was like living in their house how they wanted it to pay their mortgage. As it was my first time renting it will certainly be my last! And I would advise people to never trust the estate agents and landlord make sure everything is in writing with photographic evidence.

First of all, if there was rating worse than terrible then that of what I would of chosen and I think they will still get 1 star (which is the lowest rating) but if no stars was an option then that is what I would choose. After paying £300 admin as a single person moving in to a one bedroom I would of expected nothing short of a phenomenal service but as I expected I experienced the exact opposite of this. Prior to moving in I rang Blundells with several queries, is Sky TV available in t...

We had four separate viewings, they showed us the wrong placed on two of those viewings... ... How can they mix up viewings?

I have reviewed before on the awful process of moving in. But once we got our furniture and accessories muddled together it seemed we were ready for ourselves and our newborn baby girl. Within weeks I felt unnerved by the noises in the loft and the floor boards. I thought perhaps a structural issue given heavy rains and high winds. To my horror I discovered the house was infested with rats. It took 4 days and 3 conversations with disinterested people on the phone for a man to be sent around in a...

I've been their customer for 2 years. It is terrible experience to deal with this agent however I'm living with my wife and a new born so it is really difficult for us to move again. Anyway here's why it is terrible. 1. They charges me 250 pound admi fee each time I renew my contract, which is 6 months long. Once they only allowed me a three months contract saying that the landlord was withdrawing the property, but after three months they told me that the landlord changed his mind and I could...

If you want to rent a house from a company who is unprofessional, can't be bothered to turn up to show you around a property or even phone you back then Blundells Hillsborough is the place for you. We arranged a viewing for a house to let but Callum who should have been showing us around didnt even bither turning up. We waited 45 minutes and tried calling many time and eventually spoke to someone who said he would phone us straight back which didnt happen. Phoned to complain next day and told ye...

I'm sorry I ever went anywhere near Blundells. Service has been poor from the start - they failed to put half of our deposit into a DPS and left it floating around in our account. This money has now been lost as a result of yet another of Blundells' failings. Staff are slow to reply to emails and hard to get hold of over the phone making problems which last for months on end with no resolution. After a viewing at our house at which none of us were present they then proceeded to leave the door ...

They charge the tenant รฏยฟยฝ24 to release a reference, the only estate agents in Sheffield that do this. They told my new letting agent that I paid my rent late even though I had a standing order set up each month. They sent someone to inspect the property without giving me (the tennant) 24hrs written notice, I was out for the morning and came home to a man in my flat, I thought I was being robbed, this was a Saturday morning too.I'm disgusted in the way blundells have acted, very unlawful as l...

It is regrettable that I've signed a tenancy agreement with this agent. Arranged to move in at 9:45am today over 2 weeks ago. It's now 2:30pm and I'm sat in my old house with a hire van pointlessly sat on the drive. Blundells are unable to hand over the keys until a gas safety check has been carried out. Why was this not done prior to our moving in date? As if moving wasn't stressful enough. On the flip side they are very quick to chase up your references & take your money! Doubt I'll have a...

To advertise a renovated workshed as a one-bedroom farmhouse is scandalous. They state that it "is believed" to date from the early 1800s; the belief has not been tinged by the slightest research - all historical documents show it did not exist until c1872. And to state that a workshop for repairing equipment for the mines was a stable for the mine's shire horses is utterly untrue. As a previous owner who also headed up a local history project, I have presented Blundells with all the f...

Where to start with this shambolic outfit? The only thing they actually manage is the removal of your money. I'm still waiting for my deposit to be discussed, let alone returned, because "the landlord hasn't responded yet"; it's been a month. We moved out after less than 6 months having never been able to access the back gardenby the side gate, due to sharp building debris, or have full use of more than half the garage because the garage was full of the landlord's clutter... broken...

Blundells a trading arm of Countrywide Residential Lettings Ltd provided a รขโ‚ฌหœfully managed property service' for us over the last 3 years, charging 10% of the rental for their services. We were led to believe that they would ensure our property (previously our home) was being well looked after by the tenants while we were out of the country, or at least advise us otherwise. The property was always (according to Blundells) รขโ‚ฌหœwell maintained and looked after', but 3 years and 2 tenan...

Our property managers should have been managing our property in accordance with the tenancy agreement. They should have ensured that \'the property was kept clean and well aired at all times\'. When it clearly wasn\'t they should have informed us and given us chance to end the tenancy. I know we all have personal standards on cleanliness, but Blundells tolerance of filth and grime is breathtaking. Perhaps sending the property managers on a course to spot the difference between a well maintained, and a neglected property

With the exception of rent collection we feel we paid Blundells ร‚ยฃ69 a month to oversee theft, neglect and deterioration to our property over a 3 year period.

Landlords - please stay clear. Blundells' shocking advice has led to us losing thousands of pounds in unpaid rent, legal costs and damaged property after their agent Amy recommended two tenants who we now know have a string of debts, court orders and more recently police called to our property due to a dispute between them. They were very badly vetted by Blundells who did not care who moved in as long as they let the property. It took us 9 months to eventually see them legally evicted, and us re...

Blundells took over our letting agent and things couldn't be worse. They claimed our contract would still remain but they just do what they want to do - or not as the case may be. We have been charged for repairs and have invoices for work that has not been done. They do not keep us up to date with what's happening. They don't answer emails.

This agent needs to comply with their own policies. They need to be responsible for, and admit their errors. They need to do what they claim they\'ll do. They need to get proper workmen who\'ll stand behind their work. They need to take their dodgy contractors to task. They need to resolve issues in a timely manner.

My experience started off fine (or so I thought), when I called and arranged a viewing for a flat in the Q4 apartment block. I explained when I was planning on moving in (early to mid- June) and what I was looking for. The man who showed me round seemed lovely and answered all my questions, recommending that I called first thing Monday morning once I\'d been to the other two viewings I had booked over the weekend if I decided to rent the property. This was where the problems started. I called at...
