I don't normally have much interaction with agencies beyond moving in and leaving the properties, and Steyn Lettings were no exception in this regard, so my interactions with them were quite limited. When moving into the property I had to deal with a man who ...

Employ office staff who actually like people, pretty simple.

First class service, professional, efficient and friendly. I could not have asked for a better letting agent. I have been in the flat for over 3 years. They inspect my flat every 3 months. Any maintenance problems are fixed quickly, they are very easy to deal with. ...

DO NOT USE STEYN. They lie and do everything they can to not give you all of your deposit back. They go against what it says in your contract because they have purposely made it slightly ambiguous. They are lying cheating stealing awfully rude people. ...

I am writing to make other people aware of this appalling letting agency. I have just moved in to a property which they are the agency and since day 1 of us moving in they have been absolutely terrible. To begin with, nobody came with us ...

nothing. even when you tell them that they need to be a little helpful the attitude and demeanour is appalling.

I had a similar experience. No hot water or heating for a week, I was advised to go online to get the instructions for the boiler and try to work out what the problem was! If you are going to use Steyn lettings then make sure that you are a boiler engineer! It seems that as a tenant, we are at the bottom of the pile for customer service from Steyns. Plus, getting a flat inspection every 3 months is ridiculous. I had a very good reference from my previous landlord and should be allowed to li ...

I was very interested in a property that Steyn were Advertising. I viewed it on a Friday afternoon at 3.30(with two other potential tenants) and wanted to fill an application and put a deposit down as soon as possible. After calling they said they closed ...

Renting a flat in Edinburgh is always a risky business; there are so many letting agencies to chose from, some with a better reputation than others. I just moved out of my flat in June, which I rented through Steyn Lettings. I lived there for 3 ...

I moved out of my small flat in Newington 11 years ago and Steyn lettings have managed it brilliantly. I\\\'ve never had a worry or a problem with them. If I\\\'m honest, some of their repairs can be a bit on the expensive side, ...

I wouldn't recommend Steyn Lettings at all. We had various issues during our stay. Repairs weren't done in a timely fashion, we had to chase constantly for updates. We were accused of keeping a cat in our flat against the terms of the lease, despite ...

While I agree that Steyn are only the middle men and they are polite, I don't feel they try nearly hard enough to sort things out. They have a responsibility to their tenants as well as to the landlords. I personally waited 3 months to get a chest of drawers replaced in one of their flats, during which time my clothes sat on the floor in my room. Repeated calls only resulted in 'it's up to the landlord'. I used to work for a property lettings company and there comes a time where you have t ...

As a landlord, I would strongly advise tenants to avoid Steyn Lettings. It is a very grubby operation in which as much as possible is made by charging tenants for cleaning and maintenance that does not take place. My flat was allowed to fall into ...

I totally agree with this. We have been dealing with them for more than one month about whether my name is under the joint bank account that I have with my partner and still is not clear for them! This is a very simple issue so what would happen when we need to leave the flat? ...

They make it a real hassle getting a flat, trying to act professional and not quite pulling it off. Flat was a disgrace when moved in, mouldy walls, dirty bathroom etc. generally poor condition. Were reasonably quick to act on problems at the start, but ...

Steyn Lettings are useless. They accused us as tenants of lying about repair issues and refusing to even look at a faulty boiler. Hmm, safety conscious. Not. In the end, we were provided with a notice to quit, on the basis, we believe, that we ...

We used Steyn Lettings to manage our property in Edinburgh for 3 years while in Australia. They were very easy to deal with, on our return the property was spotless. A big thank you to them. Highly recommended....
