Absolutely first class service from start to finish. Always on hand to help with numerous enquiries when moving in and out - only had one issue at the apartment and that was sorted within a day once I had let them know. I've used loads of agents around Manchester and hands down these guys are the best. If I am looking again in Manchester pad residential will be the first port of call for me....

I would say great thanks to PAD, especially to Kian and Barry. They are so kind and always try their best to help us. I have never met so good agency like PAD. The landlord is also fantastic. Recently I am also helping my friends to rent properties and talking with their agencies. Some of those agencies look very big, but I could only say, their service and attitude to the tenants are reallllly bad! I would sincerely recommand my friends the PAD in the future. Thank you very much! Fantastic Pad!...

My property was let through PAD for about 9 years. In that time I have been very impressed with the management of the apartment. Not only did PAD find me good tenants, but they provided an extremely hassle free service. I am renting properties out with 2 other agents in other cities and find that there is always one issue or another that the agents are calling me about, not just maintenance, but, additional agent fees etc. With PAD I have found that there are no hidden extras, all aspects...

I rented a property with Pad Residential for 2 years and cannot recommend them enough. All the staff where nice to deal with, where helpful and after hearing so many horror stories about agencies it was a relief! No absurd fees or trip clauses in the tenancy contract. They where quick to respond to any problems we had and during the entire life-cycle of renting the property they where excellent. When it came to moving out, they sorted all the paperwork with the council for me, and where very fai...

Since the first day everything was really easy, staff was very helpful even for me that was getting my first flat in UK. During the letting contract, everything I needed was provided really fast and without questions (fixing stuff, changing batteries of the door...). I truly recommend this agency....

I have been a tenant with Pad since 2011 and have had numerous problems with the flat since I moved in. Pad have responded to emails but do not get the job done for months on end. Having lived in different rented apartments for 10 years Pad are the worst I\'ve come across. I would expect a better service considering the rent I am paying!...

Thanks for the feedback. I would remind you that all works are subject to approval and funds from the landlord. There are also further issues with the involvement of any insurance and management companies. 99% of works are done very quickly and if, in your case, there are not - then there are reasons. Without a name, we are unable to respond further.....

I have two properties listed with Pad Residential. In both cases, Ian, Kian and the team have worked efficiently at finding tenants for the property. Kian and Ian appear very dedicated to the agency and reply quickly and out of hours to my email queries. They are professional and a delight to work with. I\'d recommend them as an agency to list properties with or for renting from....

I found Kian to be an exceptional agent in my dealings with him recently. I have been a tenant of PADS for years, and have found their service to be excellent always. Whenever I have had a problem, or query, Kian has always been most helpful, and has gone above and beyond his duty as an agent, to help me and my housemate. He has been honest and open, and has recently helped me in exiting the flat by sorting all of the necessary paper work, details and contracts quickly and efficiently. He also e...

This is the worst decision I have EVER made! My Friend and I have been in liaison with PAD Residential Lettings since the start of August 2012 and now as we are about to move into our final year of university, they have told us that they have moved someone else into the property after have paid them roughly £1000. This have left of red faced and flat on our ass for an accommodation. Not only have they done this but before they have been reasonably sloppy with contact and what was neede...

What agent could do to change your mind?
Not moved tenants into the flat weeks before we moved in - whilst they took ‚£1000 each of our money, and after we have paid the holding fee nearly 2 months ago.

To MK1992 :: message from Ian Waxman, Managing Director of pad residential in Manchester. At this point there has been no response from you in over one month since my colleague responded. Can you confirm directly with me on 0161 839 9654 or email ian@getapad.co.uk that your issue is with pad residential in Manchester and which property it relates to. To make these comments without our ability to respond, IF they relate to this office, is mischievous. Please stand and explain your comments or re....

From start to finish, PAD Residential provided nothing but excellent customer care. A polite, reliable and ever-so-helpful bunch I would they were quick to respond to any issues we had regarding our flat and I would recommend them to others. The admin fees were the best we found and contracts and references were turned around swiftly and efficiently....

I lived in an apartment that I had rented through pad residential for 8 1/2 years and anything related to this property was dealt with to my full satisfaction. Any queries (e.g. maintenance and repairs) were sorted out in absolutely no time, and all staff, in particular Sarah and Kian, did respond to my emails immediately and have been very helpful and courteous. Getting the tentancy agreement renewed has never been any problem....

We have been using PAD Residential to manage two of our properties in Manchester since 2004. Both properties are 2 bed apartments. During this time I have had no reason to look eslewhere for our property management services. The key for me with a good agent is that I can leave them to get on with the business of keeping the property let out, and keeping the tenants happy, both of which PAD do very well. I have a good rapport with them, and always get a prompt response to any enquiries....

In 2005, I instructed Thornley Groves to let two new build apartments for me in Parkers Apartments. After 3/4 weeks nothing had happened and I had to keep chasing them up for information. I then contacted PAD Residential on a Monday, Someone came out to see me on the Wednesday and both apartments were provisionally let by Friday. I have always found them to be very helpful and efficient. Since 2005 they have consistantly found tenants for both apartments, freeing me from the hassle and worry of...

After using various agencies in Manchester for a number of years, Pad Residential have by far been the most efficient, professional and helpful. The admin fees for the property were the most reasonable we have encoutered, whilst the paperwork was completed swiftly upon our acceptance of the contract. The only issue we have had since moving into the flat is with a broken dishwasher. Pad had someone called out immediately and after inspection had a new one installed the same week. Kian &a...

When selecting properties to view, the agents knew the city centre very well and where I needed to be to easily get to work, as well as providing me insights into where a good night out was! The referencing process hit a few snags, but they did their best to help me out and all went fine. Their admin fee was much cheaper than the other agents round the corner and I only had to pay one month deposit - other were asking for another £100? I also did not have to pay a renewal fee for a te...
