I was hesitant to use an agency, as I always hear bad things about using them. But Friar lettings are great! Charlie found our dream flat for us in one day! Paperwork was done all quickly and reliably. I am very happy and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a flat in the area....

Great agents from signing up and getting the property to leaving on our accord to travel overseas they were all very helpful with any issues with the likes of maintenance, and even as far as helping us transferring our tv/Internet contract to the new tenants, highly recommend using friar and if we ever return to london we will use them again...

To be honest I was hesitate to rent a flat managed by a letting agent. I had always rented from private landlords and had my own bad experiences with agents in the past. I have been not only pleasantly surprised but completely impressed with Friar letting. They are a small family business and as a tenant you feel it from the first encounter. They are a rare gem of an agency that continues to support their tenants after you have signed the contract. Any request for repairs or replacements of brok...

The agent fee were reasonable and their process for obtaining a flat straight forward. You deal with an actual person in the process.

Mark and Gill work really well as a team to understand tenant requirements. I was shown two properties the day I went to their offices and had booked one of the flats by the end of the same day! I lived in the flat for more than a year before I left London and had no issues during my stay. I would recommend Friarlettings for their ability to understand tenant requirements, being approachable and professional and having a good range of properties....

I had recently moved to a new flat in Islington. From the very first time that I saw the pictures of the flat and I call Gill to arrenge a viewing, everything has been smooth and esay for me to move in my new lovely flat. Both, Gill and Mark, have been very accessible and helpful with any question or matter related to the flat, in a real short amount of time. All the paper work has been easy and understandable, all the new bills easy to set up, so they arranged all we needed and the admin fee ...

Gill was extremely helpful from the outset. She made what can be an incredibly stressful process as easy as possible and explained everything thoroughly. Every dealing with Friar Lettings has been personable and non-aggressive. Gill has had as minimal contact as is professional and all my dealings with her - through text, phone, email and letter - have been friendly and productive. I thoroughly recommend Friar Lettings as a tenant and I know that my remaining dealings with them will be fruitful ...

The agents at Friar have always been incredibly nice and proactive while we rented this property. We had an issue with a ventilation device and Friar dealt with the issue promptly and efficiently. We always found staff at Friar was very friendly. Our 2 and a half year stay was happy and we got back our deposit with no delays. I would definitively recommend Friar as a letting agency....

We moved to Friars leggings after a bad experience with a large, expensive and increasingly unresponsive agency. From the outset Friars took personal responsibility for resolving matters left unresolved by the previous agent and efficiently getting a new tenement on board. They keep me up to date while dealing with any issues with minimal fuss. Costs have been transparent and reasonable, unlike other agents. A personal and committed service and I heartily recommend them....

Comment on agent fees
The fees are transparent and reasonable and well worth it for the high level of service. Particularly valuable is their connections with local builders, etc. so you pay closer to the market rate rather than inflated fees and call-out charged charged by many larger agents.

These are great, honest and easy to deal with people. they never talk down to clients, aren't posh or pushy at all. Just really nice people ... who, most importantly of all ... get the job done well and quickly with the utmost of professionalism included!We have used their services a few times over the last ten years and all the tenants they have found for us have been totally reliable, clean and nice people who have each stayed a long time making the letting easy. We manage out own rentals but ...

After dealing with a horrible letting agency Friars was a breath of fresh air. We found the property online and arranged a viewing. Mark came in on his day off to show us around the flat which is excellent service and not common in this industry. Friars were flexible and held the property for us giving us time to make a decision and pay a deposit. Everything ran smoothly with the moving in process and Friars have been a pleasure to deal with ever since. We had a break in and as well as sorting o...

Friar Lettings were by far the most friendly and helpful estate agents I have ever used. From the initial viewing outside of office hours, to the cheery phone calls and texts, they went out of their way to make our move as easy as possible.

I have been using Friar for over ten years, and they have never been less than excellent in the service they provide. They have been managing my property for the last five of those ten years and have not only found tenants quickly but have overseen refurbishment and repairs, with high quality work, while keeping myself and the tenants informed every step of the way. I don\'t know what I would have done without them....

Friar provided and is still providing an excellent, efficient and professional service, all our questions and issues are dealt with immediately. They gave us all the assurances we wanted and gave us a spacious property that ticked all our boxes, throughout our dealing with them; they have proved to be very helpful and friendly. Once we received the keys and moved into the property we found a welcome card signed by Mark, Gill and Tanya. Once in the property we noticed an issue with the wate...

Friar Lettings provide an excellent tailored and personal service to their customers. My experience with Gill, Mark, Tanya in both my property search and property management has been great, and I would definitely recommend them to others. They will go over and above their job requirements to help you and always react efficiently when there are problems or emergencies, something which is not always offered from bigger agents. I have a great relationship with Friar Lettings and this is invaluable ...

Friar have been my agents for the last 6 years - since Apr 2008. Throughout that time I have found them to be absolutely excellent in all they have done to support me as a landlord. They have kept my property properly maintained and they have also looked after the tenants in the right way too. They choose all their tenants extremely carefully and I have never had a problem with any of the tenants. In summary I cannot praise Friar highly enough, they are conscientious professional experts, and...

I\'ve dealt with Gill, Tanya and Mark for over 8 years now, and can\'t think of a better team to manage my property. They are organised, honest and extremely professional in everything they do, and make sure they deliver the best service for tenants and landlords alike. If and when the time comes, Friar would be my first choice to look after any further properties....
