The process was very straightforward and explained very well from the outset. The staff were all exteremely friendly; Adam showed me around the property and gave me some expert technical advice on setting up broadband; Ruth and Stephanie worked really hard on my behalf to push through the referecing and documentation and ensured that I had the correct insurance cover; Nickie was very helpful on the phone helping me with questions and directing me to Stephanie and Ruth on certain matters.

The agent's fees are in-line with other agent's whom I have dealt with and are certainly not aimed at top-tier pricing to the exclusion of potential private tennants or potential buyers. They have a wide range of properties on offer and are clearly very popular with landlords, tenants and buyers alike.

We have been lucky to have the support of Ruth and Stephanie for a number of years. Whenever we contact the office we are greeted in a very professional and polite manner. They have always dealt with our queries efficiently and thoroughly, and are very proactive in their approach. They have made property management from a distance much easier and are always available to offer support and guidance. We have always been provided with excellent service from all of the agents within the Halifax o...

The payment fee upon renewal of tenancy is out of order considering that all I, as a tenant am doing is carrying on the exact same arrangement. Literally nothing else needs doing to require this payment other than a new form needs signing.

Love living at the house I do, beautiful views & amazing school nearby for my daughter. Looked at this house & knew i wanted to live here. Ryder & Dutton letting team were great, I've always kept the house in amazing condition however I would have loved to be able to decorate but was told the landlord decided against it. My daughter understandably would love a girlie bedroom. Each inspections which happened I would hope the letting team were extremely happy with the level of cleanlin...

Hi Claire, thank you for your review.

We are pleased that you enjoy living at the property and hope you continue to do so.....

From day one, the help and attitude from Kirsty at Ryder and Dutton has being top notch. She was always ringing or emailing to keep me and my wife informed of the buying of our house and to let us know if any thing cropped up that could slow down the purchase. She is a credit to Ryder and Dutton and therefore our overall experience of the estate agent is a positive one. Would definitely recommend. Thanks again!...

We had 4 prospective tenants and they thankfully managed every element so we had to do very little. Theywere always willing to help or advise with any queries given that we are fairly new to the process . They ensured all the paperwork was complete and we now have happy tenants that are all settled in! We would not hesitate to recommend them both....

Being a first time buyer, I was somewhat lost about what to do and when, but Kirsty was always there expertly guiding me through everything. She was incredibly helpful throughout my whole buying process, highly competent and professional, and most of all-genuinely warm, friendly and personable.

The valuation and photographs were done very quickly by Stuart and we were impressed with the quality and also how soon they went online. We felt Stuart was knowledgeable about the sale process and also provided a fair and accurate valuation of our house. We had viewings booked within 24 hours and we really liked how we received email confirmations of all viewings and also of the offers made on our house. The call centre is a great idea as we always felt that prospective buyers could arrange a...

We didn't look into any other estate agents once we'd met with Stuart so we can't really compare costings but we thought the fees were relatively reasonable. Our house sold quickly and we did the viewings ourselves, but I'm sure they would have worked hard to help us sell if it had of been needed.

Ryder & Dutton were very efficient from the start of the process and produced very effective marketing materials. They handled viewings efficiently and kept us well-informed. When sold, they handled all the communications efficiently and were able to bring the sale to a satisfactory conclusion, at a time when the market was quite sluggish.In addition to the two staff mentioned, Nicola Wall was also very helpful....
