“Never ever use the Leeds Branch if you are a landlord”

Written on: 17/09/2014

I am a landlord that has three rental properties in leeds, including a penthouse , all of which I maintain to a very good standard. I have a fairly busy job as a TV presenter on a shopping channel and live a good 2 hours drive away so need to use a reliable agent to maintain my properties to the high standards that I offer my tenants. I always agree to any work/repairs ASAP as I want my tenants to be happy and comfortable. In this week alone I have discovered my first property has been… Read Full Review

“bad manners”

Written on: 14/09/2014 by HarleyDobson (1 review written)

Just spoke to a young man on the phone in the Stretford branch to enquire about viewing a property and was meet with a general attitude of sarcasm and unhelpfulness (we couldnt attend the one day they had arranged an open house, no it wasn't possible to arrange another time). The overall vibe was unpleasant and not very customer friendly… Read Full Review

“Avoid!”

Written on: 12/09/2014 by Aidenthatsall (1 review written)

If only this review site allowed a 'no stars' option. Bridgfords Manchester branch would be prime for that rating. Our experience is that every single aspect of the letting process is cocked up by them. They are virtually impossible to get by phone. With some of the tenants we've had from them, I dont think they even did the references they charged for. Charges mysteriously get added for things you didnt ask for. Keys regularly lost. Viewings simply invented. They are always very nice in the… Read Full Review

I was a tennant on a 12 month contract via the Denton Office, after being there 6 months my Fiancee and family moved in 2 weeks later I received a notice telling me to vacate as the landlord was wanting to sell his house, along with a "for sale" sign going up soon after.

“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
