    dodgey agents. Get your money, and leave you hanging.

    I was looking for a short let (~2 weeks), and this case they said they could be ‘flexible’. The associates are nice on the phone. They respond quickly when you are interested, and get your money quickly. (you pay before you sign anything, and no discussion about any terms or conditions. But when you have a problem you want to discuss, they never return a call, become slow at replying to emails. Say they will respond or to call the manager at certain times, but then he is never there. It feels like they just want your money and once they have it there is no need for discussion. I thought they’d at least discuss it with the client, but nooooo, they leave me chasing them everyday for a week with multiple phone calls. Even if there is no refund, which is upsetting, the customer experience and service is poor.

    Worst letting agent in brighton

    Worst letting agency in Brighton, the owner of the agency charges you hidden fees that are not stated in the contract when you checkout . I’m an international student that rented from them and had a terrible experience. Don’t even bother dealing with them, they send you dodgy emails and on some occasions they don’t even inform you when they have a viewing at your property, they just show up. I always pay my rent 6 months in advance and rented the property for 1 and a half years, and even that I’ve been treated horribly by the owner himself. The owner is extremely rude and he answers to my email in an unprofessional and dodgy manner. Got tired of the back and forth email dealing with the owner that replies alwyas with the same thing and with a few lines that I gave up on my dispute. It’s not worth it to rent from them, worst experience ever dealing with this agency.

    By far the worst letting agency in Brighton.

    Be prepared for no call backs, dodgy emails sent out of hours and all round poor customer service. Pressured to move in the day after viewing, extortionate fees for what you sign up for and failure to complete the necessary paperwork. Do not move into one of their properties without having any paperwork signed. Be prepared for aggressive phone calls after you’ve addressed an issue, illiterate and unprofessional text messages and threats for eviction. As a result of disrepair we had an issue with rats which then developed into flies and hatching maggots. Whenever contacted about this SB Lets showed no sympathy and decided to evict us all after complaining about the living conditions. I agreed as after 4 months of hell with Sb Lets I had enough. No section 21 provided for the eviction – after addressing this we were rudely told we had no AST so they didn’t have to follow the Section 21 rules. After receiving more aggressive emails and phone calls I no longer felt safe living in the house so decided to leave the property asap. Please think twice about renting with this company, they will find any loopholes and cannot be trusted.

    So there is a lot to say about this agency.

    First of all make sure you read the whole contract properly there are charges in small print that they don’t tell you, for example you will be deducted £50 of your full deposit when you leave they call it ‘check out’ fee.
    For the check out day they will trick you, they will make you leave at 12 pm on your last day whereas you should have more time, if you don’t leave the will threat you to charge you an extra night.
    Also if you locked yourself out the agency will charge £50 just to use their copy to let you in in your own room.
    Also during the viewing they will tell you cleaners come once week whereas it’s only once per month, when you ask them why cleaners don’t come every week they will tell you to top up for a weekly cleaner.
    Also they do viewing without your consent, or even letting you know. They just barge in your private room.
    DO NOT GO THROUGH THIS AGENCY, they are crook, and have little consideration of the tenants.

    AVOID AT ALL COST THIS AGENCY!!!!!

    The agency manager is a very dishonest person, careless, and actually not a nice one for whom money matters prior to his customers he will not care about your wellbeing but only cares about his money, so he can have a nice car while most of clients are paying for a service that they are unhappy with.
    On top of being a crook he will blackmail you and threaten you as soon as you will a post a comment, by saying ‘I will get my lawyer’ and even swear at you. They can’t expect good feebacks when they give bad service and try to rip off every single tenants.
    He will also train his team to be as nasty as him, so the whole agency is full of nasty people.
    Sb lets is starting to have a bad reputation in Brighton, just have a look on forum pages ok Facebook and I hope this will stop soon.
    This is a very accurate situation of this agency. Please people take this in consideration.
    Peace out ??

    Stole my money

    Summary: The quality of the place was not acceptable and they refused to refund me even though I didn’t even stay there and I checked out immediately!! They practically stole my money!

    I found a room in a hotel online that I really liked the size of the room very much and the quality of it was good ( not excellent ). So I called them and I asked for the name of the hotel but they refused to tell me except after I pay ( probably so that I can’t go directly to the hotel and book for a cheaper price ) so I went to the office and payed the money for the booking and I asked them that I wanted to go to view the room as the room will be booked for a month and I need to check it but they told me that I can’t and that all rooms are standard and that the girl working there stayed there a couple of month and it was good ( quality and size ) so I believed them. Problem is when I went the room was not even half the size of the one in the photo and the quality was very bad as it smelled bad and the chair had holes in it! So I talked to the manager of the Hotel and she told me that it’s the fault of the agent as the room in the pictures haven been taken for a month! So I checked out and left with my parents!

    So I went back to the office more then once and they told me that they will call me back but they didn’t and they refused to refund my money all though I didn’t stay there.

    appalling service

    I found SB lets to be rude and obnoxious. They let me a 2 star hotel that was quite frankly worse than a squat. When I phoned to discuss this they were less than helpful and we’re reluctant to give me a refund. The manager was unhelpful and incapable of communicating effectively. Do not use these guys!
