Very positive experience with Cryers! They were very professional and helpful. Clear instructions were given when we moved out and my emails were always responded to promptly. Also we had a FANTASTIC landlord who I wish we could have again!...

By far the best agent I have worked with. They have a personal approach to each client; know their clients very well and really put themselves out there to help out. And always with positive results and success. I have been in several difficult situations and each time I asked for help they have managed to dig me out of a hole. Cryers is well in order with several property managers and a maintenance manager with precise and experience contractors. Definitely not a place where staff changes al...

They kept adding fees and said it was for absolute rubbish.The contract is a joke a big joke. They pressured me into signing the contract and said why did you sign the contract if you didn't understand.

I think some other people on here have gone WAAAAYY overboard with their ranting! I moved in on July 1st and there were some things which needed doing from the previous tenancy (cleaning/broken furniture) but by the time I came back from the summer break it was all pretty much sorted for us. When anything else has gone wrong during the year it has always got done and we\'ve always been notified of viewings (unlike other agencies I\'ve lived with!). I\'ve used a few student agencies now and I...

I can honestly say that my third year at university was the worst year of my life due to one thing. the fact that i live in a dive and there is no one coming to sort it out. The house is standing up which is good, however everything else about it is absolutely dreadful. When I viewed the house I was like "great, looks lovely" little did i know i was signing up to everything being broken all the time and nothing being done about it. it is almost like the company is run by deaf people wh...

Whatever you do, DO NOT go with cryers. Even if its a last resort. They are the most unorganised company ever and think that they can get away with anything just because they are dealing with students. My house was disgusting when we moved in and now they are trying to charge us for decorative costs and others things that we haven\'t broken. If they don\'t give me my deposit back at the end of the year im seriously going to devote a month of my life making sure that no students EVER go to cr...

I had looked around loads of houses last year and found a house through Cryers. when we first moved in we had several requests which were all done within a week of moving in and the cleaning was also done on the same day. we had someone leave the tenancy during our time at the house. Cryers was able to contact our landlord and agreed that we could pay a lower rent until we found a replacement tenant. Overall a good service....

Its a pity there is no option to award these people 0/5 because I believe I would and I believe everyone who has had the misfortune to deal with them would also. My landlord of my private house lives abroad and up until summer 2012, her mum took care of all rent/maintenance/repair/tenancy agreement issues we needed. We had not one single problem with anything since we moved in September 2010. She retired from that position and Cryers took over all of that, which is when the fun started. They ...

Moved into our flat on 1st July of this year as a student let and spent the whole summer managing what these Letting Agents were supposed to be doing! the only way you are going to get this company to do as little as send a cleaner in is to pay them a little visit everyday until they are sick of the sight of you which I did for the first month and a half.

THE WORST AGENT I HAVE EVER DEALT WITH! Prior to moving into the property we were promised that the house would be cleaned (not too much to ask) that the moldy sofa would be replaced, that the mold would be removed from the bedrooms and bathrooms. Once we moved in none of this had been done, the previous tenants dirty clothes were left, there were tampons in the garden and just pure filth EVERYWHERE, including green and black gloop in the windows which I cleaned. It was endless calls to the cr...

Rubbish company; they make all sorts of promises before you move in and don\'t then follow any through. We were told the rotting window frames would be sorted before moving in, and they were untouched- and not sorted for the entire year we were there. The windows were so bad there were holes letting air through big enough to fit a finger in. Awful with deposits too- last year a total of £250 was taken between 5 of us; the reason specified was a small amount of water on the floor, where we ...

where do I start? ive been renting from cryers for nearly 2 years in 2 different properties. My first house shared with 2 other students was ok, although there were cracks along the walls, moldy carpets and a dodgy front door and a derelict houe next door but this is what we expected hearing plenty of student property horror stories. The only time we needed Cryers was to fix our faulty shower and within 2 days a man came and fixed it. Although 2 days later another man arrived and said he was her...

Cryers let this house to me and 3 student colleagues. On taking over the property they took a deposit which we have yet to have back despite leaving the house in perfect condition and handing back the keys on 30 June. On taking over the house we found cat sick on the carpets and cat excrement on a bed mattress. There was mould and a general lack of cleanliness. Worse still, there were leaks from pipes which have never been repaired and which resulted in damp and soft walls. Cryers refused to ...

from my experience, the agents arent the problem. its the company as a whole which is disastrous. theres total lack of communication between the agents however, each of them tell you something totally different. like i was promised my deposit would be in on friday 17th by one agent, and then told that its impossible to know from another, and from another agent they\'re waiting for the contractor to get back to them. i mainly dealt with stuart throughout the year i lived there and he was overall ...

cryers are an absolute disgrace. the day i moved in last year, the house was disgusting, totally uninhabitable to the degree that i went back home for the weekend till it was supposed to be sorted. they got cleaners in, who supposedly managed to clean an 8 bedroom house in the space of a few hours, but surprise surprise didn\'t touch my bedroom. there was mould all along the walls of my bedroom, in which their solution was to wipe it off and told me to buy mould and mildew cleaner to do it when it comes back. when i complained further, i got told it was my fault there was mould in my room which is complete rubbish. after living their for about 9/10 months and continuous complaining they finally sorted my room and put in ventilation, just a couple of months before i was moving out and is now summer time. all through winter i had to live in a damp, rancid room which resulted in a persistent chesty cough and hundreds of pounds worth of mouldy clothes, shoes and bags. the job took a couple of hours to do and sorted the problem, so why they didnt do it at the beginning is ridiculous. alongside that, we all had problems in the house that were complained about but again, cryers did nothing. we cleaned the house top to bottom out of courtesy when we moved out, despite the contract stating we have to leave the house the state we found it in which was vile so didnt have to do clean at all, we still did. its been 7 weeks since i moved out and moved into a new house by a different agency obviously, and i\'m still yet to recieve my deposit. again, numerous phonecalls and visits later, still not any closer to getting it back. i have truly had enough of them messing me around, i want my money back i have nothing to do with them ever again. worst letting agency.

This agent is truly awful. I have no good thing to say about them really. They are not bad people I think but extremely incompetent. They do not pass on any requests to the landlord ever, they lose all your details, they do not return deposits on time. When you press them for anything I believe they just decide to put your issues right to the back of the list. When I arrived at my house the floor was covered in vomit (thats right, vomit), despite the assurance that everything had been checked to...

Not had to be chased every week for an update. Actually do the work rather than fobbing me off each week with different things ie ''I'll ring the landlord this week'' - really should be ''ve rung the landlord and we will be acting immediately' not waiting another week before being chased to do something else. Remember that tenants are your customers, and that you should treat them with respect.
