What our customers say...
We know that the service we offer is better than the competition but don’t take our word for it, read what our landlords and tenants have written:
“Letting through DSU Lettings has been a positive experience from start to present. The staff have made everything very easy for me and are always willing to go out of their way to help. They are friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. I would strongly recommend them to any student. I don’t have one bad thing to say!”
Sharon McCabe, Student, August 2010
"I would personally like to thank Nicol so much for helping us first years make finding a house so easy! DSU lettings are amazing and I would recommend them to anyone!
They are fast with communication and extremely friendly, finding a house has never been easier. From our own personal experience, we tried to find and view a house through a private viewing but the landlord never showed. Nicol explained the process to us, showed us the house, and drew up the paper work in no time. They are very flexible and exceed everything you can expect from an agency. Professional, friendly and the most trustworthy place you could go to. They were able to put any of my worries at ease concerning accommodation. Thanks again Nicol, I can't wait to move into the house!”
David Lim, Student, July 2010
"We left it late to look for a property but DSU Lettings found my friend and I a unique property in minutes. A viewing was arranged in no time and for a time that suited the both of us. The pro’s and con’s of the house were explained fully to us and paying our deposits and rent was swift and easy.
I would recommend DSU Lettings and will be using them next year, if we decide to move again.”
Sam Clarke, Student, July 2010
“DSU Lettings were fantastic in helping us get our housing sorted. We decided to go through DSU Lettings for a number of reasons, but primarily because they were university based. We knew there would always be a point of contact if we ever experienced any issues, and the fact they were linked to the Student Union meant we knew they would be trustworthy.
We personally as a group had to overcome a number of issues when getting a house sorted, such as people dropping out on us and our personal circumstances changing. DSU Lettings were brilliant in helping us overcome every hurdle, and were efficient in helping us get sorted. They were patient and never gave up on us, and we were delighted with the property we got fixed up with.
I would recommend DSU Lettings to everyone and would like to take this opportunity to again thank them for all the hard work they put in to getting us sorted, thanks again Nicol.”
Alex Schofield, Student, June 2010
“DSU lettings are a delightful and refreshingly different agency to deal with. Having several properties within the area, DSU lettings provided much needed advice and assistance to ensure they were marketed and widely promoted. The achievement of targeted rental rates and professionally vetted tenants is a sign of an agency that understands the needs of the landlord as well as those of tenant and I would not hesitate in using the professional services of DSU lettings again!”
Dipak Parmer, Landlord, May 2010
“When I started at DMU I was expecting to get accommodation in Halls of Residence. Most of my friends got places, but there was a shortage so I was put in to a house which my friends were amazed at. DSU Lettings have been really helpful and looked after me during my first year, and that is the reason I have rented through them again for the next academic year and will continue to use their services until I leave Uni. To me, as a student, DSU Lettings are the safe and trustworthy option.”
Jesse Sampson Hinds, Student, April 2010
“DSU Lettings were excellent and provided a great, seamless service. Within a few weeks they had let all my properties and dealt expeditiously with all the finer details. The staff were very easy to deal with and very professional.”
H.K, Landlord, April 2010
“All I can say is that I am really impressed!
The service I received was of a very high standard. The representatives at DSU Lettings were friendly, approachable, professional and very flexible. They were able to communicate with me in various ways, making it possible for me to deal with this affair around my other commitments, which was really convenient for me.
DSU Lettings were very efficient and reliable, ensuring tenants were found within a very short period of time, whilst also meeting my requirements. After experiencing their service, I am now confident in knowing my affairs are left in safe hands, giving me that peace of mind I have always hoped for.
I would also like to give my special thanks to Nicol for providing me with the assistance and valuable advice I required.
I recommend DSU Lettings to all you landlords and tenants out there who require a top class service. I will definitely continue using DSU Lettings for the next academic year. ”
Hassan Sardoiwala, Landlord, April 2010
“Moving from your first year into your second is stressful enough without the added problems with moving from halls into a house. Being new to the area, I had no idea where the best areas in Leicester were, how to deal with landlords and the legal side to moving so seemed daunting.
From my experience, DSU Lettings were amazing. I never worried over the paperwork as they do it for you yet they explain everything so you knew what was going on. The bonus of not paying agency fees or any other hidden fees or charges was a relief to know as many students are victims to cons and scams. The landlords provide houses that are safe and in great condition and after a few viewings, we found the house that we wanted and are excited to move in!
I would recommend DSU Lettings to anyone”.
Lilly Duncan, Year 1 DMU Student, March 2010
"DSU Lettings were very helpful and honest when dealing with us. This honest approach went along way and had a big impact on our decision to trust and use their services. We knew we would be looked after and we were. The staff are very friendly, helpful and approachable.
I would thoroughly recommend using DSU Lettings.
Thank you for all your help.
Jon Shearsby, Year 1 DMU Student, February 2010
“Having been an established Property Landlord, I approached DSU lettings to enable me to let my property very quickly and at an appropriate price. Staff at DSU Lettings are friendly, approachable & deal with queries very efficiently. Quick & responsive in delivering excellent customer service and within a few weeks of advertising my property, they have successfully let it and arranged the logistics for me.
I would highly recommend that any landlords looking to rent to students contact DSU Lettings, they will be able to provide you with efficient and comprehensive customer service. I will be happy to work with them again in the near future”.
Krishna Ruparelia , Landlord, January 2010
"I would have no hesitation in recommending DSU Lettings to fellow landlords or in particular students. In short, my experience this year has been first class.
The service provided by the staff was excellent in both the pre and post lettings process and general guidance. Any queries that arose were solved together as a team.
I am looking forward to working with DSU for the next academic year and feel satisfied to have found a valuable lettings partner."
Bill Rana, Landlord, March 2010
“I am so impressed with the service I received with our Flat let that I would like to take this opportunity to thank Irving and Nicol for providing excellent service from my first enquiries with them, right through to the hand over to our new tenants.
They are both very professional, extremely helpful, especially regarding communications both via phone and email and they deal with things promptly and thoroughly.
I would strongly recommend DSU Lettings to anyone as they are definitely the best agents I have ever had dealings with and would not hesitate in using their service time and time again.”
Seema Syed, Landlord, March 2010
