Martin & Co, Sheffield

2 ★★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
Letting Agent rating
Got the move in date wrong by a month - move in day came and they said oh uhhh hold on we have to do some repairs. This continued two weeks until they said oh uhh its ready but the landlord won't clear it. End result was sticking everything in storage and being homeless for a week. It turned out the landlord was very clear regarding move in dates, Martin & Co just messed it up and tried to shift the blame. Someone from a more central office ended up intervening.
Took them several months to fix our request for a working boiler. We just kept repressurising it every day in the middle of winter. Other things like leaks were fixed relatively fast.
Constantly kept trying to do inspections of which half they actually showed up for. The outcome of failing them was never particularly clear but it was annoying when leaving a laundry basket out or having a party meant a condescending email later that week.
At the end of the tenancy they sent an email, addressed for the landlord (woops!), discussing how to best claim as much deposit as possible. Wanted four times as much as would be reasonable, still fighting it with DPS.
They get 2 rather than 1 star because most issues were incompetence rather than malice and they did have some nice individuals on their team.

3 ★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
Property rating
Not infrequent leaks, the bathroom had no windows so loved to mould as fast as it could, the boiler broke a few times though this is tied in to how bad the agency was.
Other identical houses of the same terrace has big damp streaks down the front face of them. Cracks were appearing where the skirting board met the walls, etc - couldn't say if that was poor joinery or if the entire thing will eventually come down.
The actual design of the house wasn't bad. Being a relatively new build the insulation was better than some, worse than others.

8 ★★★★★★★★☆☆
Area rating
Pretty central to town centre, all the takeaways on London Rd and station/ trams. Decent road links too being next to the ring road.
Football stadium meant you may well get your bins kicked over every match day, and the driveway frequently got parked on by randomers. Mostly surrounded by students with a few families. Not a particularly pretty or ugly area.
