I would rather be paying less than 11% full management (but they do a good job) as I've been with Manners Residential Lettings since May 2012. Ideally, between 8-9%.

Manners was recommended to us, but we have been extremely disappointed in the way we have been handled. A year ago we made appointments for viewings on the day, after taking leave, I was informed no appointments had been made. In April I saw a property and phoned immediately for a viewing. Appointment was set up then cancelled another appointment set up and cancelled was told that the current tenant was not allowing people to do viewings. Asked that I please be given 1st appointment as soon as w...

Her advice was always sound, she actively chased to speed the process, kept me in touch at all times and listened when the delays frustrated me.

Everyone I have met at Manners has been professional, helpful and friendly. James Manners gave us much advice about suitable houses for letting, spent much time with us going over property details and went way beyond expectations by accompanying us on viewings. Nick Griffiths has always been helpful and a pleasure to deal with and Nigel Gillespie found us tenants within one week despite the house being very untidy due to the tenants who were still there. Lisa Braun, to whom I had previously sp...

We have always found James to be a true professional in his field with the ability to give sound constructive advice when approached for assistance or guidance, particularly when considering a buy to let purchase as we have done on many occasions. We were particularly impressed when, having met up with James to re-market one of our properties in the morning, we received a ca...

I have worked with Manners for many years. They have always provided me with a good, professional service in the general running of my Lettings. They balance the needs of the landlord and tenant to try and be fair to both. James in particular goes that extra mile with professional advice in extraordinary circumstances, for example, the purchase and sale of properties. Manners knows its customers and treats them as individuals who need individual attention. They are an excellent company to d...

When i started letting with manners i was in a rush to find a property and i could not recommend using them again for the following reasons. The fees are particularly high compared to other estate agents. Many fees are charging £30 for a one line reference is particularly insulting. Fees for checking In - out and reserving properties are high. Most galling however is the blase approach to the tenants rights to privacy, and even basic security of their financial information. ...

During this time any problems affecting the upkeep and maintenance of the property have been quickly and efficiently dealt with by them and all rental payments have been paid to me promptly on time. This year the flat needed a major re-modernisation to achieve its full rental potential. Manners sourced the various trades required and supervised the speedy completion of all work involved to minimise the void period. T...
