Been with this company for 2 university years and had nothing but problems. Error after error. Useless, unintelligent and rude staff whether it was over the phone or in person. Spoke to other people who have been with them and they all say the same. Any students looking for accommodation I recommend you avoid pickerings There are much better letting agents in headingley...

Renting a student house from these people was a nightmare from start to finish. Not a single promise to rectify the problems in our house was ever met. Everything they tell you is untrue - they exist only to mislead and to collect rent....

Being charged anything at all by them is a disgrace.

Pickerings were awful at responding to our needs. They sent emails weeks after inquest. Our house was filthy, and they took money from us to clean it after we left even though we left it cleaner than they gave it to us. Do not let from this agency....

Pickerings are by far the WORST letting agent I have dealt with in my 5 years living in Leeds. 5 months on from moving out of my tenancy, I still have not received my deposit back. The property was a disgrace from the moment we moved in, including stained carpets and walls to broken cupboards, a filthy oven and a non defrosted freezer. We reported these online when we first moved in however they never properly got professionally attended to, as you would expect an agent to do so. Upon vacating t...

Started off well. Eventually the landlords and agents would let themselves in the property I was renting without notifying me first (whether I was in the property at the time or not), sometimes during times where I had family and visitors around. If you want privacy this is not the place to rent from. Also, do not use Pickerings if you ever want to see your bond again. Once you move out they will ignore all contact from you and keep your money....

Do not go anywhere near this letting agent! Property still not habitable after four months of tenancy! Pickerings do not care just interested in collecting your rent! Never met such an unprofessional bunch of people! We are students who care about where we live and I believe Pickerings wouldn't dare treat professional people the way they treat us!...

I have rented property across the UK and in Leeds for many years. Pickerings are amongst the best agents I ever rented through. Reading some of the reviews I guess they probably make a rod for their own back as they rent a lot of character properties in student areas. I can only say that Pickerings dealt with issues promptly and were always courteous. My view is based on the fact that I have previously had only bad experiences when dealing with the agents in Leeds. The worst I can say about P...

Where to begin with them... fire alarm system left unrepaired, cooker oven unrepaired for months, inclusive bills not paid until services are disconnected and PLEASE make sure you keep an eye on anything you store around the place because you may find that it disappears if Mark 'forgets' that it's not his. Add to that phone calls requesting short notice visits to show prospective new tenants round, which agency reps then do not turn up for and a very short memory, after multiple breaches, of bei...

I don't normally write reviews, but I felt the experience I have had to date with Pickerings needs recognising. Over the course of my one year tenancy, I have experienced the odd maintenance issue, but only to be expected in a 150 year old house! I also changed jobs halfway through the tenancy leaving myself with a temporary cashflow crisis. Pickerings dealt with all my maintenance and accounts issues professionally and with considerable understanding. I have just this week moved into my second ...

We were given a house by them which had many faults and it took months to fix them. The heating system was broken for over four months - it was constantly on - causing us a massive amount with the gas bill, which they did not offer to pay. Fixing the washing machine on both occasions that it broke due to them supplying us with an ancient one took over a month, which caused issues. I had to threaten to cancel my rent payment as per the contractual obligations that they had to fix issues with t...

I had a pretty terrible experience with Pickerings in Leeds. The landlord put every effort into trying to ensure I signed a 6 month contract, and then once signed ignored all correspondence (emails, texts & phone calls), even when serious matters cropped up. I can honestly say I\'ve never experienced such negligence from a landlord and letting agency before. I would strongly advise against using Pickerings if you are a propsective tenant in Leeds. I was lied to on more than one occasion a...

Tenants, landlord beware. I would never use this estate agents as they would take as much money from the deposits and use excuses from bills cleaning that would never nene done. After the academic year ending not one single person to inspect the property. When they charged the tenants half of that is passed on to the landlord. If you are a landlord seriously do not use them as you would be throwing money down the drain. As for tenants don\'t expect to see your deposits back as they would...

We feel like we have been neglected by Pickerings on numerous occasions (Fiona & Anita have been very helpful though!); ยท For the first 4 months of my tenancy agreement I struggled greatly to get into the building due to the front door lock - sometimes late at night after finishing work - often having to stay at my boyfriend's house due to it being summer and no-one else in the flat (where would I have gone if I couldn't go there!?). After weeks of constant phone calls we were give...

Apologised and acted on all of the issues rather than leaving them to sort themselves out, or for us to do something!

We are just at the stage of getting our deposits back, and have been scammed into being charged ร‚ยฃ250 for 25 hours of cleaning. We left the place as we found it. The place was clean enough for us when we moved in, yet cleaners still came but we sent them away saying the place was fine. Yet when a previous tenant came for some post a few days later, he said he'd been charged for cleaning... There is no way 25 hours of cleaning was required. I can no doubt imagine this company is doing dodgy....

terrible!! when we entered the house it was a state, rubbish was all over the drive and the house was dirty and had obviously not been cleaned! After leaving the property it took two months to retrieve our bond back with them constantly making excuses and doing all they could to keep hold of it. Once we finally got it back half of it (300) was withheld for cleaning charges which were an absolute joke as the house was left spotless! I will never use this agency again and would not recommend any o...

TENANTS LANDLORDS BEWARE! DO NOT USE THEM! YOU WILL LOSE MONEY OR YOUR PROPERTY WILL BE DAMAGED, GUARANTEED! My property was being looked after by them but they don't do any inspections to the property. When there are problems recieved from the tenants they will contact the landlord without having inspected themselves. so the tenants could basically say anything and also walk away with all your furniture and PICKERINGS will not take any responsibility. PLUS THE CONTRACTORS THEY GET YOU WILL H...
