  • Very efficient and very proactive. They fitted two new radiators in our flat as soon as we requested them. They have also given me two sets of VIP tickets to what Leeds Rhinos play. Overall a very strong experience with them as my letting agents.

  • I have been with many landlords in the Headingley over the past 16 years and Spencer Properties have been by far the best. Firstly they are extremely professional, helpful and trustworthy, something which in this area can be hard to find. I have been with many landlords in the Headingley over the past 16 years and Spencer Properties have been by far the best. Firstly they are extremely professional, helpful and trustworthy, something which in this area can be hard to find. Secondly they treat you as humans, not just as cash cows who are there to pay for their mortgages. The proximity of their properties to the Universities, plus the above reasons make them ideal for students or professionals who are new to the area and are looking for good accommodation in which to work or study from. I would highly recommend Spencer’s to anybody who wishes to rent property in Leeds.

Spencer Properties make sure that your accommodation is the best place to live in, and the customer service from them is brilliant. When it came to sorting out deposits, Spencer Properties returned the deposit in full without any hassle.

  • I've found that Spencer’s provided a really good service. I lived in their property for a year. I found that they listened to my concerns and addressed them quickly and efficiently. The maintenance staff are really friendly and approachable too. For me, this was a great, fuss-free way to rent my lovely place to live. :)

  • I had a great experience when I let with this agency. The landlord was helpful and always attended to my needs. Yasir also was concerned with my general well-being. I was comfortable in the house i rented and every time there was a problem I knew I can call him and expect fast response. I would let with these agents over and over again.
