Thanks for this Bob. Phil Sat 22/12/13
Being proactive, and ensuring tenants know how they can help reduce any risk, is something that we are also aiming to do, rather than just being reactive, and finding any issues once they are established.
I was just e-mailing to say thanks for the prompt replacement and maintenance of our heating, myself and everyone else at 23 College Road really appreciate itRichard - Wed 13/02/2013 11:53

Can I just say a big thank you from Dan and myself for helping us both out and allowing us to live together in one of your properties, it means a lot. Looking forward to moving in.Sean Brierley 13/06/2013
My daughter has rented from Leydon Lettings for the past three years and my experience dealing with them has been a very positive one. They are very helpful and prompt to respond to a problem. The houses are very well maintained and I would recommend them very highly. The fact that my daughter remained in the same house for three years speaks volumes and she will be sad to leave to pursue her career. Many thanks to Bob, Nina and office staff.Katie Dooley (parent) 12/06/2013
I would like to say that it has been a pleasure dealing with such a professional and well organised landlord.

"Recommendation for Leydon Lettings"
"I’d like to highly recommend Leydon Lettings as a trustworthy and professional letting agent. I have a Victorian terraced house in Wincheap which I have let to tenants for the past 7 years whilst I’ve been working overseas...
I called upon Bob Leydon from Leydon Lettings for help. He was most willing to assist me, and promptly arranged a full house inspection and review. He produced a professional and extensive document which reported a thorough room by room review, including the exterior, of his recommendations of what could be done to upgrade my property.
The report brought to my attention some safety aspects that
needed urgent work, plus some suggestions of how to present my house in a way that will attract tenants and draw a higher rental income at a reasonable personal cost.
His help has been invaluable in pointing me in the right direction to improve my house and making it a popular rental property. I wouldJ.P. Landlady Thu 12/04/2012 09:11

I just loved the house at 103 Tennyson Ave and that huge bedroom would have been perfect, I took too long to decide and now there is nowhere left in Canterbury I am commuting at least 2 hours from Ipswich. If anything becomes available please let me know!J.C. Sat 02/10/2010
Hello Bob!V. L. Sun 09 August 2009 20:58 Resident for academic year 2008-2009
A huge thank you, the house looks beautifully painted and brilliantly cleaned!
Really pleased with my bedroom furniture (Room 1) it is all very modern and light! ... Thank you once again we really enjoyed staying there all together this weekend.
... In addition, in comparison to other letting companies It would appear on average their rent is £80 a week without bills included, compared to the £96 you offered me which includes all utility bills (heating, water, electricity), plus a TV licence and hard-wire internet and orthopaedic double sized mattresses, the latter being very important to me due to health reasons.

"I think I am going to become a student!" Damien Olly13March 2008 - Emma and Damien - Canterbury City Council Accreditation Officers.
"My housemates and I moved into 43 Godden Road in our second year at University... it soon became like a second home to me. Leydon lettings did everything they could to make us feel comfortable and happy, and they did everything possible to tend to our needs; whether the vacuum cleaner broke or a light bulb went, Robert was always quick to help and rectify the problem. They have been very patient and good to us."Abigail
''You are the most generous landlord I have come across... the house is superior to any others we have seen... I am really impressed with the standard... I wish someone had told us about you before now, my older daughter could have been in one of your houses instead." H.S. 29 August 2008 Parent.
... I think your business must probably be the most trustworthy and reassuring student lettings I can find in Kent, ... you provide high quality furnishings and extras that really make the difference when you're a student, and that you actually really care about your tenants and their living standards, unlike most around here, so I thought of you first!G.O. 9 October 2008 Resident for academic year 2006-2008
