Landlord Testimonials

DEU Estates Letting Agents

As a first time landlord I did not know what to expect and especially being based in London. Deu Estates guided me through the whole process - advising me on everything from the legal length of a short term tenancy to which blinds to put at the windows.

I found everyone at Deu Estates really listened to what I was looking for and tried to match my property to the right tenant. The lettings negotiator was always enthusiastic and approachable. The administration was hassle free – the contract produced, the inventory and pre-let professional clean taken care off. Special conditions I needed were respected and included in the legal documents.

I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an enthusiastic, professional outfit with the personal touch and they have been looking after my properties for fifteen years.

Polite, friendly and helpful staff who are always happy to help with any queries. Staff are easy to contact and return calls and emails promptly and know the business. I have dealt with Deu Estates for many years now and like the continuity and personal service.

Very friendly and really helpful with everything from the viewing to moving in and after sorting out keys etc. Really impressed with how quickly questions were answered, quick email responses etc. so I didn't have to chase.

My house was let within 6 days which exceeded all expectations. The online tool for overseeing the letting was particularly useful and reduced the time for continual updating phone calls. Overall I felt the team were very knowledgeable of the market and the local area, and dealt with everything in a professional yet personal manner. Jas's commitment to his clients, warmth, tenacity, and obvious ability to negotiate a deal means he offers an unrivalled service tailored to both sides of the market. This is where many agencies fall down; entirely focussed upon the landlord. As a landlord, I felt in safe hands and appreciated the commitment and great lengths Jas extended to try and find the right tenants. I wasn't easiest of people to deal with, due to enforced changes in my requirements. I would highly recommend you to other prospective landlords and would be happy to utilise your service again in the future.

I have had the misfortune of crossing paths with a number of unprofessional Machiavellian Estates Agents in the Leeds area and assumed that EVERY agency in Leeds came from the same school of business based upon this experience, however, Deu have proved me wrong – thankfully. I engaged the team on a “let only” basis and their pro-active, hands-on and informative approach has been excellent. I genuinely believe that the team at Deu are looking to build relationships and not penny pinch or try highly unscrupulous business tactics to make a short term gain. Particularly recommendation needs to go to James who has been excellent throughout the entire process in terms of his delivery, professionalism and levels of communication throughout. I would recommend Due Estates above any agents in the Leeds area.

During the early months of 2014 we decided to look for a property within the student residential districts of Leeds University, initially to support the housing requirements of a son then studying at the University, but also with a view to investment and rental income. After investigating a number of potential options we narrowed the search to the Burley area of Leeds at the north-western corner of the core student residential districts, near to Burley Park railway station and local amenities.

The property purchase was concluded during the summer and to support our needs for the property we needed to identify and select a suitable Agent. There are obviously a number of potential candidate agents within a close proximity and hence we wanted to select an organisation who we believed could offer not only a professional service but also a friendly service for both owners and renters alike.

During the course of our property search we had had the occasion to be shown a particular house by a member of the DEU Estates team. It is very true that first impressions count for a lot and though that particular property was not suitable for our requirements the knowledge and friendly approach provided by the DEU Estates representative lodged in our memory.

Therefore, on our first visit back to Leeds following completion of our property purchase, we visited DEU Estates on Cardigan Road to see what form of service they could offer to us as Rental Agents. In line with our first impressions of the organisation we were greeted warmly and efficiently. The various options were clearly explained to us and as we could not logistically undertake any activities ourselves the Fully Managed Service offered by DEU Estates was perfect for our needs. We hence entered into a contract on this basis at the end of August.

The traditional property selection rental period for the year had long since passed but undaunted by this the rental team took up the challenge to see if they could find tenants for our property. In this task they exceeded all expectations and secured a suitable tenant for a portion of the property within 3 weeks, and then a further two tenants 2-3 weeks later, barely giving us enough time to complete the renovation and improvement work that we wanted to undertake on the property.

Since that time we haven’t had to worry about anything, with rental amounts paid on time every month and even collection of electricity meter payments for us on a monthly basis. What is just as important is that the team are always on hand to provide active and excellent communication whenever it may be required.

We would describe Deu Estates as a professional, very well-managed business. We have found that they work with the landlords needs as well as the students needs. We are immediately informed of any updates/changes if and when they occur. We feel that we are always kept in the loop. They have gained our trust with in letting our properties. This takes the stress out of managing lets. We certainly recommend Deu Estates.
