I have been very happy with the service I provided from Priors. The Agents I spoke with (Clair and Mark) were very helpful and listened to me if I ever had a problem. I have recently moved on to a new flat, and Priors were brilliant in making sure I was checked out quickly and efficiently. Thank you Priors....

Priors in general, and Claire in particular, are professional, punctual, and good communicators. We had few problems with our flat during our three year tenancy, but the one or two issues we did have were dealt with quickly and effectively. We were kept apprised of the status of ongoing repairs and administrative tasks, which helped reassure us we were in good hands....

After our initial year-long tenancy agreement, Priors charged a quarterly admin fee. We had no problems with this---the fee was reasonable.

We had a massive move from Yorkshire to Brighton made all the more easier Mark (as well as Dan, Jackie & Roz) at Priors. Since moving in Mark has provided exceptional service sorting out a couple of problems instantly and efficiently. We have rented many times and have not experienced a service as good and as friendly.......if only all agents treated good tenants in this way, selecting and moving into a home would be a lot easier for all. Thank you Mark...

Despite my flat becoming available at a very 'low confidence' time (Brexit) Mark was confident that he would find a tenant, and barely three weeks later, a new tenant is moving in. Mark and his office made the whole thing stress free, and were even able to get a 'deep oven clean' and gas safety test arranged at the drop of a hat. Priors have been managing the building that my flat is in, for several years, I wish I'd turned to them for tenants before!...

My boyfriend and I rented a flat in Hove for 1 year with Priors. We are both very happy with the service we received, the friendliness of staff and the special attention we received when looking for flats. We booked a viewing with Priors. After the first viewing, we were asked what we were looking for etc. Claire was able to suggest a few properties and show us a flat that wasn't even online yet and give us some friendly advice. This was extremely helpful and resulted in her finding us our perfe...

The service offered was both professional and prompt; any repair authorizations and work that needed doing were carried out in a timely fashion. I would happily recommend them to anyone looking to let in Brighton....

What agent could do to change your mind?
Agency fees are a bit high when you consider they had to be paid every six months (tenancy renewal) but that's Brighton for you.

I've been renting in Brighton for 10 years now and Priors have been by far the friendliest, most straightforward agency to deal with. They're efficient, always reply to emails extremely promptly and seem to have a good relationship with our landlord. When they showed us around the property they were honest about minor flaws and pointed out everything needed intervention from the landlord. Mark has always been really polite and helpful, as have his team....

Agency fees are pretty high and 6 monthly (for tenancy renewal) although they have offered to seek a longer tenancy for us from the landlord, and all agency fees in Brighton are pretty steep! All in all, not wildly above average.

Communicating with her is always straightforward and efficient. This has been very important for me, as this is my first experience in the UK.

We rented a shared property in Hollingdean for a year and a half. I dealt with Mark throughout the tenancy and he was extremely helpful with any requests. He also made helpful allowances that assisted us in claiming the vast majority of our deposit back, which was very kind of him and he was happy to liaise with us throughout the process. Priors as whole were very efficient, much better than our previous estate agent (King and Chasemore)! Thank you!...

As a landlady I have been a client of Priors since 2007 and have found the service from all their staff to be efficient, thorough and friendly. Mark and Claire must be among the very best in Hove. They have let three flats for me over this time and have always found good tenants within days. Late last month they found a tenant for my studio flat the day after it went on the market despite the market slowing down for Christmas. They also offer practical advice on what prospective tenants want...

Simon made our move down to Brighton a very easy one! He has a very friendly and personable manner and throughout the letting process he was extremely helpful - always promptly answering calls and emails. Since moving in he has been swift at sorting out any issues for us and I am in doubt he will continue to do so for us. Overall - super customer service - many could learn from him!...

Simon is a breath of fresh air. He is honest, reliable and diligent. We were looking at a number of flats to rent in the Hove area and Simon was extremely helpful in our search. When it came to the minor details part of the contract Simon made everything very clear for us. He was extremely quick in response to any of our qualms and has continued to support us since moving in to the property. As we moved to the area out of town we found it extremely encouraging to be guided by Simon who is a Brig...
