I have rented properties for 20 years and used OpenRent for my last letting. It was amazing! We had 6 couples view in the first week and had 2 offers. OpenRent made every step of the way easy and were excellent with phone support on the occasion I needed a quick reply. I cannot recommend them highly enough. We now have lovely new tenants at a fraction of the cost an estate agent would have charged me and the tenant. Brilliant.
This is the second house I have advertised and let through Openrent and so far, so glad I have. I was fed up of having to use the normal letting agents who would over charge me and the tenants, who would put the first one in that they found and would give little reguard to requests. I'm so glad I found and used Openrent and will use them again if they continue to offer the same high level of service.
Open rent is truly the future of lettings. With one simple on line advert, we got our property in all the big sites and had lots of enquiries and it was soon let. The most amazing part is that you can take as much or as little as you want by way of services. I had the advert fairly widely distributed, the references checked and the first months rent sorted out plus the deposit paid into the DPS.
Everything was communicated by email as soon as each stage was completed. Including the actual tenancy which was also on line. Then it is visible for either party to see. I think it was money well spent and would definitely use it again. They do what it says on the tin. Plus they even arranged the gas safety check. The guy found that there was a very bad join in one of our gas appliances behind a kitchen cupboard and resoldered it there and then. He did it so quickly that we did not pay extra. It was really efficient and I cannot imagine ever going into one of those lettings agencies again.
It is often off putting that you cant speak to anyone when you use an on line service, but these guys are also on the end of a phone, call you if they think it would be useful and are really enthusiastic and friendly.
We used Open Rent to find tenants for our flat. We got lots of enquiries and made arrangements with most of them to see the property the following weekend, thinking that some would not turn up. However most of them did and we were spoiled for choice and could have let the place ten times over. We got great tenants who have now moved in. What we liked about Open Rent is that they do not make charges to the tenants for admin, contract signing etc and their reference service is only £20. Having paid excessive amounts of fees to estate agencies for tenancies for our child while at university we were very pleased that our tenants did not have to pay these fees.
This is the second time I have used Openrent and again have been very impressed by it. Placing an advert is reasonably priced , simple and has a near enough immediate audience on Right Move and Zoopla. Noitifcaiton of prospective tenants is quick and simple. I have recommended the site to others and would try and encourage other landlords to use Openrent - excellent.
OpenRent has to be the best thing ever for anyone wanting to rent out their property without being obliged to use an agency which is not a pleasant experience in my view We listed our flat in the Old Town in Edinburgh late on Friday night and had our first call 2 hours later; we then had a total of some 15 contacts over the next 2 days and had 5 offers to rent!! We now have a signed up tenant who is moving in on Thursday. Even more exceptional is the fantastic, efficient and friendly service we have had from OpenRent - I didn't know that this standard of care and attention to the customer existed any more. Landlords and tenants alike must definitely use this company - they will not be disappointed. Thank you very much to the team at OpenRent.
I used OpenRent for the first time and am more than happy with it. I found it really straightforward to use, reasonably priced and had a good response to my ads. The one small technical issue I had was quickly and easily resolved by friendly and helpful staff. It is refreshing to find such a good product backed up by great service. I will definitely use again and will recommend to everyone looking to rent out their property.
This was the very first time we had rented out our apartment. Openrent made everything simple and easy. We were guided, step by step through every part of the process. Will definitely use them again and would recommend them to anyone
I would totally recommend this service to anyone who has the time and inclination to manage the process of screening and selecting tenants themselves. We were lucky enough that the first people who came to see our flat decided to rent it! We avoided agent fees and thereby saved a lot of money.
I tried the first free advert for 5 days and had several responses. I then upgraded so I could stay on Rightmove and Zoopla and received in total 18 requests to view in less than 2 weeks. I would definitely use them again.
As a landlord, have just used OpenRent for the 1st time and everything worked perfectly. The first viewers offered the full rental price and OpenRent organised all the references. Great concept and avoids high letting agents fees for both myself and the tenants. I will definately be using the service again. Thanks.
I used Openrent for the first time after using Agents for many years, wish I had used them sooner they are first class. They are always there to help if there is something you are not sure about, and cover everything from gas certificates DPS ect ect. I cannot praise them high enough. Would not use anyone else. Good luck Openrent you deserve it.
Openrent is a very efficient way for Landlords to market their properties to let. I was very impressed by their service: They have access to all the main properties portals including zoopla, rightmove and also gumtree. I received an SMS and an email each time a prospective tenant expressed an interest. This service is offered at a very competitive price. Very impressed and could only recommend them to other Landlords who do not mind doing the legwork of the viewings themselves. My properties were let in a very timely fashion and I avoided costly void periods. Will definitely use again
I have used other online website agents before and their websites are not as easy to use or as cheap as Open Rent. Uploading photos is simple and intuitive. The adverts are listed on all the major portals very quickly - mine were uploaded on Zoopla and Rightmove an hour or so after I'd clicked the "list" button. Another major selling point is that the advert goes on Gumtree so, if you are clever, you can list it on Gumtree using Open Rent as well as listing it using your own email address. I had a very good response, over a 1-week period I had 20 responses from the Open Rent listing and I found tenants very quickly. I would highly recommend this site, it cuts out having to pay estate agents, I reckon I've save more than £1,000 in agent fees.
I recently used www.openrent.com to find tenants. Simple to use, user friendly, fair, value for money and greater communicators are just a few descriptions of my experience. I advertised with them on the Friday, had 4 viewings on the Saturday and tenant agreed on the Sunday. All at an exceptionally reasonable cost. Very pleased that I don't have to use an estate agent ever again! I will be using openrent again.
When my tenant suddenly dropped a bombshell saying that they needed to leave after just 3 months, I was preparing myself for a month long void as it was at the beginning of Feb. Because of the slow time of year, I considered paying hundreds to a letting agent to find me a tenant but then came across a few good reviews for OpenRent which cost a fraction of the LA prices. So I joined up and paid a little extra for more than 5 days advertising on Rightmove etc, I received several enquiries and found a new tenant in just 2 days!! My tenant moved in at the weekend just 7 days after the previous one left.
I can't speak highly enough of OpenRent, fantastic communication from start to finish and I will most definitely use them from now on.
I can't recommend OpenRent highly enough, its a fantastic, easy and efficient way to advertise a property to let. Great service and communication, excellent coverage and value for money would definitely use again. Thank you
As a new landlord, OpenRent made the process of renting out my property as pain-free as possible. This is the way for private landlords to get their property on to all the major property websites like Rightmove, Zoopla & Gumtree and since there are no agency fees to be paid by either the landlord or the prospective tenant, in my view it has to be the best way forward for conscientious and astute landlords who prefer to advertise their property, interview applicants and arrange viewings themselves. Would-be tenants appreciate the cleanness and simplicity of the service by dealing face-to-face with the landlord and there being no agency fees for them to pay - my successful applicant had previously been asked by a letting agent to pay £400 for credit checks on him and his wife! - so as well saving your prospective tenant money upfront, you can also reassure them that there are no hidden agent fees to pay in future. This gives the OpenRent landlord a competitive edge over the landlord using a letting agent. OpenRent gives you complete control over the situation by immediately notifying you of prospective tenant's enquiries via email and text and they even offer helpful feedback and advice - in my case the number of prospective tenant enquries was so high that OpenRent suggested I might want to review the rent upwards! Within 4 weeks the property has been let to whom I consider the ideal tenant. I couldn't be happier with the professional service provided by OpenRent and would highly recommend them to other private landlords.
