Leonard Leese are a terrible agency. They are incredibly intrusive, rude and unprofessional. They are sloppy and bring family members 'along for the ride' when meeting with clients/tenants. When repair is needed on a property, they will have their preference as the cheapest and 'dodgiest' option. They have no business skills with people handling and are incredibly inarticulate in their approach to communicating. If you are looking to rent another property managed by a different agency, go with them, as I hope they couldn't be as atrocious.
