The most shockingly arrogant and negligent treatment I have ever encountered as a tenant. I moved into a one bedroom flat managed by "Happy" Lets which, as I discovered upon spending my first two nights there, was suffering from a serious case of DAMP, making the atmosphere extremely cold and humid and posing a serious health hazard. To demonstrate how cold it was, the contractors who came to see why the fridge was not working (this was right when I moved in), concluded that the fridge was not broken, but was failing to function because the outside temperature (the flat) was so low. I informed the agency immediately about the issue and was forced to relocate and stay with a friend only three days after having moved in because the cold was unbearable (at this point it's worth mentioning that the agency had also misinformed me that the flat benefited from central heating while there was only a small electric heater), my bedsheets, clothes and all my belongings were damp, and I had started to feel ill from having to sleep there. Their response was that a damp specialist had already inspected the property and had not found damp, and they refused to send anyone to reevaluate. Of course, once I asked them to forward the report, I found out that the damp specialist did not confirm that there was no damp in the property - on the contrary, he had inspected the property after the previous tenant reported an issue with damp and was suggesting that the flat be properly heated and ventilated (which is impossible to do with a portable electric heater). For an entire month I wrote daily emails to Happy Lets reporting the situation and asking that they do something about it. They denied that there was a damp problem, refused to send another contractor to reevaluate, suggested that I buy 5 dehumidifiers at the price of one pound each to deal with any humidity, and insisted that if I wanted to leave I would have to give two months notice and continue paying full rent until then. It was an extremely distressing time for me. Eventually, with the help of the tenants union, I was able to get a technical officer from the council to inspect the property, who confirmed that there was a damp issue and ordered the agency to conduct repairs. Hilariously, even after the agency was served with this notice, the property manager * continued to argue with me that the agency was not in breach of the Repairing Standard and that the Council's report was 'false' - just to see how far this type of arrogant and negligent behavior would take her. However, due to this report, the agency eventually had to agree to releasing me from my contract without notice and refunding me my rent at the landlord's request. The agency really did drag it out to the last minute though, refusing to allow a representative from the tenants' union be present in the flat with me during the check-out inspection on the grounds that a third person would make the room 'far too crowded' for the agent to inspect if any damage had been done to the property (I'm still debating whether this trumps the dehumidifiers suggestion in terms of sheer ridiculousness). A couple of months after moving out, I saw the said property being advertised for sale - I assume the landlord either wanted to get rid of it after the Council's involvement or had had enough dealing with incompetent agents from Happy Lets. Needless to say, please consider how your health and wellbeing will be affected by renting from such a shamelessly deceitful and negligent company and avoid giving them your money every month.

I have had my apartment rented out through Happy Lets since 2008. My initial contact was through Bobby Sandhu, the owner of the letting agency. He organised everything for me as I was living overseas at the time. Since then, the apartment has been constantly let without issue. I receive my monies on time and detailed account deductions when appropriate, all which can be presented to HMRC for end of year returns. Their staff, from the letting staff to repairs and maintenance have all been very professional and courteous. They have vetted all potential tenants and made professional recommendations along the way.There is obviously a cost for this service, but that’s business and I couldn’t have managed this at a lessor cost.I would highly recommend Happy Lets...Last but not least, a special mention to both Amanda Currie and Ceetl Bains, both have been the epitome of professionalism during the current pandemic. Thank You.

My first contact with them and now the viewing have been a really pleasant experience
My flat viewing was conducted by Nicole, she's a very polite and helping lady. 5 stars for her🌟
Moreover, they are the first agency who replies to emails and that too very quick
I would definitely recommend them.

We moved out of our flat on 4th September and still haven't received ANY of our £965 deposit back, despite emailing several times asking for it to be returned. We are being charged £114 for repairs which were listed in the inventory from when we moved in (including in photographs), so couldn't have been caused by us - even though I have proof of this I am having to haggle over this bill, and since they haven't returned ANY money I can't afford to dispute it any longer. It is a legal requirement that they return the £851 that is undisputed but they haven't done this, still holding all of my deposit.
We also had multiple inspections that we took the day off work for, which they then didn't show up for, without telling us.
We were sent a bill for multiple late payments of rent, none of which had happened - we didn't have to pay it since we could prove we paid on time, but I got the impression they do this a lot.
These are just some of many reasons why you should avoid Happy Lets, from my experience.

Happy Lets are a company who are in the market for profit at nearly any cost. All repairs take at least two weeks and a series of follow up emails to be approved - unless there's a chance they'll be an issue in the long term for the properly. However, issues including a broken dresser upon moving in, a broken bathroom door lock, a leaking toilet and a broken bin all took several emails and weeks to be fixed. Inspections focus entirely on the aesthetic of the wallpaper without checking if any of the property was working. Upon moving out, a ludicrous cleaning list is provided (dust on the skirting board, for example) to claim a chunk (£150) of your deposit - though they will refuse to breakdown what is being charged for what. Moreover, they waited 24 days to release our deposit, forcing us to accept their offer by making it more urgent. Really disappointing experience all round.

Happy Lets provided great service. I had no hassle with them at all for the last 3 years, they were extremely friendly and communicated with me in advance if they were any flat inspections. I am actually gutted that they will no longer manage the flat that I am renting. Wishing you all the best guys!

I rented with happy lets for a year in a shared flat with a friend. The flat was in excellent condition and reasonably priced considering the area we were living in. Happy Lets we're professional and courteous in all our dealings with them and very fair when we left the property. I would recommend anyone should consider them when looking for a flat.

Customer Testimonials

Everyone I worked with, from the person who showed me properties to the agent handling the paperwork was very knowledgeable, helpful, and kind. What's more, they got me in to a flat in a great part of town surprisingly quickly.


You have provided an extremely professional service and took the hassle out of letting my flat. My account manager was extremely enthusiastic and committed to finding a suitable tenant for my premises. I have since recommended you to several other Landlords I know. Thanks!


We are extremely grateful to Happy Lets for being so professional and arranging a tenancy so quickly and without hassle. The Happy Lets staff have a unique work ethic which is enthusiastic, friendly, trustworthy and inspiring, and we are delighted that we chose Happy Lets as our letting agents.


As a local (Hamilton) landlord I did not have the best experience using some Letting Agents. However, since joining your agency I have had the minimum of trouble. You process the prospective tenants, including reference checks etc. Any repairs and queries are dealt with promptly and efficiently and I am sorry that I did not use you initially when I started out letting my property. The staff are helpful, efficient and always prompt to answer any questions. I have recommended you to all my friends who have a property to let and will continue to do so.
