“Absolutely Shocking!!!! ”

Written on: 16/08/2014 by Crouchdj147 (1 review written)

On the 20/5/14 Me and My Partner were looking for houses on the internet, we saw the house we choose so Me and My Partner rang the number on the advert, she left a message as they was no answer, over the next few days we tried on several to contact bridgefords, with no success. Eventually they got in touch and we booked a viewing for the 27/5/14 at 4pm, me and my partner got to the house 5 minutes before the arranged time, however the woman who showed us the house turned up 15 minutes late… Read Full Review

“Awful estate agents”

Written on: 16/08/2014 by Webster213 (1 review written)

Bridgefords Lettings - Didsbury Branch Before moving into the property the estate agent asked if I wanted any furniture moving out the house, I said yes, picked which I wanted removing and everything was set! After moving into my property (apparently without the landlord knowing which I now know) it had a load of his belongings scattered around the house, along with plenty of dead wasps and dirt and the furniture which should have been removed untouched. I complained about this and they… Read Full Review

“Never again...”

Written on: 07/08/2014

When we went to view a house last January we were really impressed and wanted to go further, when I rang the Wsshington, Tyne and Wear branch they said we needed to pay £200 as a promise to go ahead I had found this weird as renting previously I had never had to pay until the application was given. They said we would get it taken off our fees so we proceeded. It took weeks for our applications to get sorted and once told to go in to sign and pay I was shocked to find I was paying an extra… Read Full Review

“Never buy through Bridgfords again”

Written on: 29/07/2014 by munxar68 (1 review written)

Purchasing a house through the Newton le Willows branch of Bridgfords has been the worst experience of my life! The cavalier attitude of the customer service/sales throughout the whole process was disgraceful. I had the misfortune of having to deal with a member of staff at the Lowton office regarding the collection of the keys and the attitude there was no better. I will never buy any property through this estate agent or recommend them to anyone. APPALLING SERVICE!!!!!!… Read Full Review

“never use bridgfords ever”

Written on: 28/07/2014 by Jaxonj122 (1 review written)

I had my friends view the property with bridgfords Leeds I rented as I was working overseas at the time, at this point everything was fine. I sorted all my perperwork over email which was great. When I rented my property I advised the estate agents that my partner who I not a British national would be moving in half way through my tenancy. When my partner's visa came through all details were passed on so that the contracts could be updated on his arrival into the UK. After chasing for this I… Read Full Review

“Do not use!”

Written on: 21/07/2014 by Sharpe28 (1 review written)

I have rented from several letting agents over the years and recently moved out from one from Bridgfords. I looked after the property very well but despite this they have taken £350 from my bond for things I did not do!when trying to dispute the costs they just refused and said I had to pay. During my time in the property I had several issues with things and the letting agents were very poor at communicating every time. I would not recommend anyone to use their services- lots of much better… Read Full Review

“Appalling lettings team in Manchester City centre ”

Written on: 21/07/2014 by Kellercn1949 (1 review written)

I have had a nightmare with the Manchester city center team, for letting out my apartment. They took over 6 weeks to find someone, did not bother to contact me, despite me calling/ emailing daily. Then took over two weeks to get the tenant in, that at their own terms and not what I agreed, further reducing my rental income. It has been over two months since my last tenant moved out and I am still waiting to receive my deposit! Its amazing such an agency can act in this way- they ignore you… Read Full Review

“No communication”

Written on: 09/07/2014 by Series8 (1 review written)

We decided to appoint Bridgfords as the agent to sell our property as we felt that the current one was doing a poor job, their representative came round and told us how different they were, how proactive they were, totally different to other estate agents and they guaranteed to sell our property within 12 weeks, which I considered to be a bold claim. To date, (11 weeks) we have had 2 viewings, I know that they can't conjure up buyers and I don't expect that to happen, what I would like is some… Read Full Review

“Use them at your peril”

Written on: 03/07/2014 by Aldenc320 (1 review written)

I used this joke of a company last year . If only I'd had hindsight ! Their fees which they don't explain until you've paid 'the holding fee' are ridiculously high to say the least. They ' check you into the ' property any faults ate then passed to the land lord . Time goes by the repairs still don't get done. As someone previously mentioned they charge you £25 ' checkout' fee lol. They love £25 fees. As I couldn't make the checkout they send the intinary and basically you lose every penny of… Read Full Review

“Useless...”

Written on: 02/07/2014 by ApplePear (1 review written)

Absolutely useless. 1) Rude staff who do not seem to care 2) Ridiculous fee's 3) Paid an amount to switch payment date and still receiving calls months down the line to say my rent late- obviously not late as I paid to change my payment date! 4) Above amount was not passed on to landlord 5) They charge you £25 if you are not in for an 'inspection' however they cancelled same day for me and rearranged to suit them! 6) The day they came for inspection the employee turned up an hour late… Read Full Review

“Avoid avoid avoid!!”

Written on: 18/06/2014 by AlysonElliott (1 review written)

I'm a new landlord and got quotes from several agents in Manchester. I went with Bridgefords as the hard sell by branch manager unfortunately worked with my naivity. I got constant emails from her promising the best service and the best advertising for my property. She pushed for me to sign the t+c's and I did. Afterwards I heard nothing from them. They would never pick up their phone and is be constantly fobbed off. After 3 weeks no one had even been to my property to take photos! I had… Read Full Review

Iramsaeed's Response to mathandra's Review

Written on: 21/06/2014

I agree worst agents I ever used, official documents are lost in their office as a usual routine and they do not bother at all. It looks like whole team is a bunch of inefficient people who only know how to look good without doing anything.

“Wish I could swear!! Nobody deal with them!! ”

Written on: 15/06/2014 by Rasmussen28 (1 review written)

We have rented with these jokers before and stupidly did for a second time but it was a beautiful home for our family. The northallerton branch were dealing with us who only did things when it suited them. Now as we have moved out and in good faith gave them 3 months in advance they are not willing to give is this back because they asked us to leave for another tenant to come in which has fallen through so we have to pay the cost for their mess up! Nothing in writing so we don't have a leg to… Read Full Review

“Worst Letting Agent ever dealt with”

Written on: 06/06/2014 by Nolae197 (1 review written)

I work in relocation and so deal with letting agents all day. The Manchester Branch of Bridgfords which recently took over from Curtis Banes is one of the rudest, incompetent offices I have ever dealt with. They never respond to emails, they will never put you through to who you want to talk to on the phone, just pass messages back and forth. Any agreed dates with them get ignored and they take weeks to put any Tenancy Agreements together and days to make any small changes to it. They… Read Full Review

The so called manageress at this branch obviously did not get the job on merit, she is incredibly rude, aroggant, incompetent and unprofessional. Avoid this agency at all costs, they demand the maximum fee for the minimum effort Counrtywide should be ashamed of employing such poor performance tactics and individuals… Read Full Review

“INCONSIDERATE NOT HELPFUL”

Written on: 02/05/2014 by Kaydenv17 (1 review written)

I have dealt with Bridgfords for the past 6 months now and it has been a terrible experience. They are slow at responding to urgent matters. The first day in my new flat I had no gas, I had loads of repairs which took ages for them to fix. When speaking to the staff on the phone they were unhelpful and nothing was ever solved. I am still waiting now for them to find my gas meter and it has been 6 months, they are lazy and do not consider you as a tenant. They fed you false information and try… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/05/2014 by ihatebridgfords2 (1 review written)

I have just left the property I was letting however my battle is far from over with them.. BRIDGFORDS staff are the worst breed of people I have ever encountered in my life.. I had been dealing mainly with the Manchester city centre office (maintenance dept)on a very frequent basis, they are the rudest, most ignorant and least helpful team of staff. I was laughed at, shouted at and lied to on a daily basis when I rang 2-3 times a day for a week (so often because they never once returned a… Read Full Review
