    Ive had experience with a couple of the major private lanlords in Plymouth so I just thought i'd pass it on.

    Bryce Properties,

    A really good landlord, I can't say enough good things about Bryce. Good spec houses, no deposit, no hidden charges, no late charges. Justin, the owner is always a phone call away and his team of maintenance guys are excellent. I was seriously screwed around with my loan last year and they could not have been more accomodating. We were all given vouchers to spend in a few shops in plymouth, free coffee etc. Very reasonable rates as well, Big room with sea view, parking space, bathroom between 2 people, all bills in for £380ish. Lots of added extras as well, we have a cinema room and other properties have similar, the kitchen has every appliance you can think off. They really want you to be happy in their homes.

    Clever Student Lets

    Not so clever, extreme rising damp and toenails on the floor on arrival. Not immedietly accomdating in finding another property although they did in the end. We were told all the work had been done but clearly not. All the guys moving in who'd been lookong foward to the year together had to move seperatly elsewhere. The office was a disgrace, literally full of people complaining about mould, mattresses etc etc. I feel like this landlord has bitten off more than they can chew. Had to wait for keys to be cut and all sorts of silliness.

    Radnor halls,

    Halls is halls but if you end up in Radnor opposite the pub you wont be sleeping much! All the drinkers sit on the pavement outside. Good for first year only imo just to meet people.
