Awful experience. Never ever trust them if you are looking to rent a property. Hopeless. Don't expect your deposit back once you have given them. No matter how you clean the property before leaving they won't give you back. Always biased and takes landlord side....

I highly recommend Letters of distinction as a real estate agency. They are efficient and nice. Everything was done in a timely manner (only seven days between the visit of our place and us moving in.) Scott, whom we've been in contact with most of the time, is helpful and clear and answers any question in minutes. He also turned out to be very handy, as we discover when he came himself to help us with the heater, and stylish (nice "vichy" shirt mate.) Along the way, we also had the pl...

Letters of Distinction have been my letting agent for 4 years now. I would have no hesitation in recommending them. They have been great at finding reputable tenants, which to me is most important making the rest of their superb service a real bonus. Scott deserves a special mention as he really put himself out in order to get the apartment ready for new tenants ASAP. Definitely a 10 out of 10 for quality of service and so friendly too...

Letters of Distinction have acted as our letting agents for two years now. We have had one change of tenant in that time and everything has always gone perfectly smoothly. It is so good to deal with Agents who are so professional, immediately do what they say they will do, give unfailing attention to detail and communication, and manage to act in all parties' best interests at all times....

Letters of Distinction has been managing our apartment in York for 10 years. The occupancy rate has been very high with only a few weeks during that period without a tenant. Four years ago we retired to New Zealand, which is about the furthest civilised point from York, and we have relied on Letters of Distinction to look after our interests. They have ensured that the property is always in pristine condition, informing us when cosmetic refurbishment is advisable and updating the furnishings ...

I was unfortunately very disappointed when my first purchase with Letter's of Distinction fell through, but how delighted was I a couple of days later to get a call from Duncan to inform me of another property just around the corner due to go on the market. Luckily we managed to clinch a deal very early on with the vendor of this property thanks to Duncan ' s understanding of our situation. We are delighted with the property and actually feel that it is nicer than the original house we looked at...

Richard, and those of his team with whom I have had phone or email contact, have always been unfailingly polite and I have had no issues with getting things done, or a response to any requests from me. The tenants found for the apartment have been excellent and Richard's help with past problems with the freeholder's agents was invaluable. As a first-time landlord (on behalf of my father) they made everything easier for me to manage, and the service was worth the fee charged....
