Extremely happy with the service we got from Jake, Carly, Kane, and the other guys when we lived at Olivia Court. Always helpful, professional, and would resolve our problems very quickly. A benchmark to the other flat agencies. Highly recommended....

Jacob has been fantastic and went out of his way to accommodate our every need. The flat we chose was properly cleaned before we moved in. We didn't really have issues during our stay, but when we did (needed the washing machine fixed for instance) ...

I am moving from Sheffield to Manchester so travelling 40+ miles for viewings. I arranged to view a property and the day before the viewing was cancelled. I then rang up and rearranged the viewing. When I arrived for the viewing no one showed up so ...

We understand that finding a home can be frustrating particularly if you are travelling a distance, I am sorry if there was some unnecessary inconvenience caused by us. Flats in Chorlton often receive a lot of interest. We try to keep viewing times relatively close together to give people the chance to apply. You are correct, we did have other viewings that day, we received 4 applications from these viewings, not 21. I am sorry we were not able to accept yours. It would not suit anyone's in ...

I thought that the flat agency were very approachable and friendly people. I felt comfortable with asking them questions regarding the flat and other aspects of the property. One area in which they need to look into is the response rate in which they send ...

The turnover of tenants in the property is very high, I would believe this is for a good reason. I spoke to all of the tenants in the property and none of them stated that they liked it! Additionally I already stated that redecorating was not an issue but your terribly slow request for this was and we had to chase you about this. Having a landlord who allows for your front door to be left open and has huge parties in your shared garden is not a benefit. I'm sure people would not expect this if t ...

5 bedroom student house, 2 cleaners worked most of the day on your move in despite us telling you (and displaying in highlighted wording in your tenancy agreement) that if you took keys during the early part of the "half rent" period this cleaning may not be possible. In fact your group insisted on moving in only a few hours after the previous tenants left. You then turned up weeks after your friends had moved in and complained the house was dirty. (Your friends arrived while cleaners ...
