Latest Reviews for Buckley Frayne - Manchester

Be careful when dealing with them because they haven’t credibility ,,,, I gave them the apartment clean and the a deposit were discounted, knowing that when I received the apartment it was very dirty and delivered it very clean......

Avoid at all costs, these guys are con artists. I viewed a property and then put down a deposit while they seeked an approval from the landlord. They then made up some BS and tried to talk me into a bidding war with some Imaginary competitor. You can't get away with this style anymore, people will catch you out and let others know about it as I'm doing now. Oh and yes, it was the management that tried this tactic on my, so the place is rotten to the core. Find an estate agency with morals and higher levels of professionalism.

Began the process of moving into a property but had some unexpected news. Megan has been excellent and understanding during the whole process and I will be definitely using them again.

We rented an apartment with Buckley Frayne and I couldn’t be happier with an agency. If something would break down they would fix it pretty much next day. The check out was also great and we only had to pay 50£ check out fee which was mentioned in the contract. Only negative side is that each year we had to pay 50£ renewal fee which was strange to us.

Only advice I would give to new tenants is to go through inventory once moved in and send pictures of any damaged pieces. We also kept sending pictures of wear and tear, however our landlord would replace them with the cheapest available items. We also had a lot of soot stain on the walls as our extraction fan was weirdly designed so that all the smoke would blow back into the apartment. The agency was very understanding and didn’t charge us for that at the end of tenancy.

My only wish is that they would become more flexible with pets. We lived in a pet friendly building but under no means we were allowed to have one, even after offering bigger deposit and extra monthly payments. This resulted in us moving out after almost 4 years of renting with Buckley Frayne.

I would have put 5 stars before the end of the tenancy as everything went smoothly and I was all in all happy with the service provided until this:

• First bad experience: not being able to stay in the flat when my flatmate wanted to leave at the end of the tenancy

2 months before the end of the tenancy, me and my flatmate had to decide if we wanted to renew the contract or terminate it. I informed them that my flatmate wanted to move out with her boyfriend but that I wished to stay and could look for a new flatmate if Buckley Frayne did not want to do it. They told me that if I wanted to stay, I would still have to totally move out for a week as it would be a new tenancy and a cleaning team would be coming. They also told me that I would have to look for a new flatmate myself and that of course I would have to pay renewal fees (!). Where was I supposed to go for one week with all my stuff? Of course, I had no other choice than moving out. I think this is something that should be made clear at the beginning of any tenancy that if any of the flatmates do want to leave at the end of the tenancy all the other flatmates should also leave because let’s be realistic nobody is going to move out for a week with all his stuff, look for a new flatmate, move back in and also pay agency fees for literally do nothing. I went to the office in person to find out what all this nonsense was about but they were very inflexible telling me that they were trying to protect the landlord in case I would throw a massive party between one flatmate moving out and the other moving in and that then half of the deposit would be non-recoverable if the flat was damage. I am 28 years old with a full-time job and would definitely not throw a party or organise an axe throwing competition in the flat. For this agency, it seems easier to stick to rigid procedures rather than using intelligence to assess situations on a case by case basis.

• Second bad experience: the checkout

My flatmate and I wanted to attend the checkout out to witness/confirm any potential charges that maybe proposed. The checkout clerk took a few pictures around the flat and told us that we did a good job in cleaning the flat and that we took good care of it. While he was showing us the way out, I asked him if everything was fine and he mentioned that ‘a light cleaning’ would be required. I asked what this was wrong and he said he would send us his report by email. We were surprised as we cleaned everything to a high standard and were not expecting such an answer. A few days later we received his email charging us £55 for ‘a light cleaning’ with pictures of microscopic dust particles (could have been there as we moved out the weekend before) and some worn items which were already in this condition when we moved in. I challenged him and he answered saying that we did a great job by cleaning the flat and that £55 was the lowest rate we could get charged. I believe this is also something that people should be made aware of before the tenancy.

Another £50 was added to the bill to ‘resale the bathroom’. There was only the seal on top of the sink which had gone due to humidity issues. I have never been charged by agencies before for this as it is usually considered as wear and tear and £50 did sound too over price given the minimum of work which was required. The seal should be redone between tenancies if required and it is the landlord responsibility to maintain the flat.

Another £50 was added to the bill as ‘checkout fees’.

All in all, we were thanked for taking great care of the flat and ended up being charged £155 so I would definitely not recommend renting from Buckley Frayne unless you do not want your deposit back.
