About Us

Asktenants.co.uk is a place where current and ex tenants can rate a property they live or used to live in. Property rating cover leaks, condensation, flooring, brightness, noise pollution, rodents, induction, parking, neighborhood & safety, energy efficiency, landlord responsiveness & deposit refund process for ex-tenants.

The inspiration for this website came while renting a property which had severe condensation issues. All residents in the block and ex-tenants knew about the problem but nothing was available online which could have helped me to take an informed decision. In spring, we realised the property is infested with moths. We were left with no other option but constantly opening and closing windows, refilling and emptying dehumidifiers and researching into every moth destroying remedy – from lavender to cedar wood. When we saw a moth fly away we could feel nothing but helplessness as we counted down towards the breakout clause!

We ourselves have let our property and aim to provide a comfortable living experience to our tenants. We as landlords and tenants have tried to make this website fair to both sides by asking targeted questions and building logical rating technique. We allow tenants to post pictures and write comments and Landlords to respond with comments and post pictures.

This website is in hope that all tenants will be able to make an informed decision and they will get a voice in this one sided market where demand outstrips supply. At the same time giving genuine landlords a chance to remedy things for future tenants.

We know that you as a tenant want to know not only about the property but also about the area. So we provide you with useful information around crime in the area, local schools information like national ranking, free school meals, English as a 1st language, information about people & culture on your street. This along with ratings can be a great tool to help you take a renting decision.
