Reeds Rains as a letting agent is good but believe charges too much for the initial processing compared to other agents in Preston. However, the staff is very helpful and understands the tenant.
Comment on agent fees
The initial processing fees is very high compared to other agents in Preston.. However, the staff members are great and very helpful.

Do not use Reeds Rains for your property lettings. They take the money and leave you high and dry. Do not chase tenants. Let them get away with not paying rent. Leave the property filthy, damaged and with drugs paraphernalia for the landlord. Disgraceful company!...

An itemised breakdown of what the fees are for would be rib-splitting stand-up comedy material. I paid them ‚£240 and never even got to the stage of signing a contract even after 5 months of genuine effort.

It is more about the company policy of Reeds Rains as a whole. Until they change their policy on ridiculously high 'application fees' I could not be persuaded to use their services.
