What some of our past and current tenants think about Surrey Student Homes and our services.
Our house on Southway had an ideal location and was in excellent condition for a student property. We were lucky enough to have our kitchen replaced, which was extremely efficient and an added bonus! Gurpreet has been reliable, approachable and fair throughout our tenancy. I would definitely recommend Surrey Student Homes and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.
When we arrived at our house it was in perfect condition. We were given all the relevant information whilst moving in and helped whenever needed by the landlord. The maintenance team were always prompt to us whenever need be.
A very helpful landlord that runs it like the business it is rather than a side-hustle like so many other student landlords. The house was immaculate when we arrived, any issues were dealt with quickly and professionally, and all the furniture is refreshed every few years rather than when it breaks. All in all a thoroughly positive experience, so much so that we have signed a contract for a second year!
This was a great house in a great location. Any problems we had were sorted very quickly by Gurpreet and the maintenance team and dealt with in a professional manner. Gurpreet was happy to deal with any issues we had at the start of the tenancy, and was always readily available to deal with queries.
We’ve been living in one of Gurpreet’s student houses for a year, and have signed the contract for another one. Gurpreet is an extremely helpful landlord, who is always available to help with any issues. As well as the maintenance team who ensure any problems are fixed quickly. Since moving in we’ve had a new bathroom fitted, and the house repainted to keep it looking fresh and new, which is rare with student houses! Viewing the houses was also made super easy with Hayley arranging to take us to show us around a few she thought we’d be interested in. Our property is in a great location for the university, train station and the hospital (perfect for healthcare students). Our experience so far has been nothing but positive with Surrey Student Homes and nothing has ever been too much trouble.
We have lived with Surrey Student Homes for one year and are staying in the same house for a second, the house was in a brilliant condition when we moved in and any issues we have had during the year have been resolved without delay or hassle. Our house is in a brilliant location with adequate parking to meet our needs. Surrey Student Homes are extremely helpful and professional and I would highly recommend them.
Gurpreet was always quick to deal with maintenance issues when contacted and had someone deal with any issues brought up. He was easily contactable through email and provided useful information during check-in and check-out, thanks for the year.
Mr Tulsi is an extremely professional and helpful landlord. I had some prior concerns about renting as a student, as you hear that students can be taken advantage of, however this was not the case. Mr Tulsi was fair, always contactable when needed and ensured the house was equipped with everything that was required by us as tenants. I would definitely recommend.
We wouldn’t hesitate to rent with Surrey Student Homes again, Gurpreet and Hayley are fantastic and ensure there aren’t any issues for tenants. Especially perfect for first time renting in Guildford!
Gurpreet is an efficient landlord who is always willing to help sort out any issues which may arise. I have no problems in recommending him and infact will be using him for my final year.
Our house in Southway was in the perfect location for uni and Mr Tulsi was the best landlord we’ve had over our five years. If anything went wrong, no matter how big or small, his maintenance team would be knocking on the door before we knew it! A very stress-free tenancy!
We were pleased that Gurpreet renovated the bathroom for us over the Christmas break, it was great to come after the break to find it. Gurpreet was always available, contactable and fair. I thank him for this year.
I just wanted to say, thank you for being a great landlord this past year and also two years ago at Southway. It’s really made the uni experience a lot better living in a lovely house!
I lived in a Surrey Student Homes property in Hill View Crescent for 2 years. Gurpreet was quick to make sure any issues with maintenance were sorted out quickly and efficiently and his maintenance team were professional and reliable. The house was completely renovated before we moved in with brand new bathrooms and a kitchen of a high standard, making the house feel very much like a home and not just a student property. Gurpreet is friendly and approachable and helped us with any issues we had over the two years willingly. Unlike many of my friends who lived in other student properties I never had to worry about our house because I knew Gurpreet and his team would be on hand to help if we needed anything.
Efficient, approachable landlord, and a well-equipped home with good facilities. The few problems we had were solved quickly (usually same or next day) by Gurpreet's friendly maintenance crew. Our home was kept up to date, and Gurpreet was flexible to meet our individual needs as tenants. We even had a stylish, modern bathroom fitted during our tenancy!
Gurpreet has been a very approachable and friendly landlord to our student home of 5, and has ensured that our house was well-maintained throughout our tenancy. Any problems we had were fixed within a week (usually in two days), and his maintenance team were always efficient and respectful of our home. The house itself worked very well for our group, with a range of bedroom sizes and a large kitchen. Gurpreet also re-did our bathroom during our tenancy whilst we were on holiday, meaning we came home to a clean and modern bathroom by the time we returned, free of charge.
Surrey Student homes is an excellent and incredibly trust worthy student housing service. We came to adore our home as it was nothing like the typical student homes we had seen before it. It was cosy, clean and well-presented. Gurpreet made our lives so easy, with a seamless transition from halls to student housing, ensuring that we were happy and comfortable at all times. He is a trustworthy and generous landlord and we feel very blessed to have been tenants of his. Thank you!
I've used Surrey Student Homes for the 3 years while I have been at Surrey University. The reason..... they offer the best value for money, great customer care, the staff are very professional and approachable. All issues were dealt with effectively and quickly. If id known they were this good I would have used them from day 1 (thats a whole 6 years). Highly recommend Surrey Student Homes.
We were very lucky to have Gurpreet as our landlord. From the first viewing to the final check out, he was very organised, friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed living in the house itself; it was well looked after and any problems we had were addressed quickly and efficiently. Thank you again for an excellent year!
Just want to say thank you for being a good landlord!! It's nice to know that you live in a house where the landlord is nice!!
The rooms provided are very well maintained, spacious, and are in exceptional locations for the rent. The landlord is quick and reliable to respond to all calls, texts and emails, for requests both urgent and otherwise. He is very understanding to the problems that can arise in house-shares with both students and professionals, and he is a reasonable and practical person when it comes to addressing problems of all kinds. The properties kept in a good state of repair throughout the tenancies, and problems that arise are addressed as needed in good time. I would therefore highly recommend Surrey Student Homes.
I rented a house on Southway from one of the best landlords in Guildford. He is well organised, easy to contact and shows genuine care for his tenants. Any problems encountered with the house, were dealt with very quickly and professionally. I would recommend Surrey Student Homes as a great letting experience.
Having lived in one of the houses managed by Gurpreet for my second year, I can definitely recommend Surrey Student Homes to students who are looking for off-campus housing. Our house was well-maintained, good value for money, and in a great location near the university. Gurpreet is an excellent landlord - very friendly and approachable and with a good understanding of students! Any minor maintenance issues that happened over the course of the year were dealt with quickly and efficiently. Overall I've had a great letting experience and would not hesitate to rent from Gurpreet again.
I stayed in a spacious 4 bedroom house located on Southway, which was very well connected to the University, Tesco, and the Sports Park. The landlord, Mr Tulsi, was very helpful and quick to respond to any issues we had throughout the year, however it was very uncommon to have any problems in the first place.
My son was a transferring 2nd year Undergraduate to Surrey University, and was experiencing severe problems finding suitable accommodation and had to stay in expensive guest houses. Once I found Surrey Student Homes and Gurpreet Tulsi and I have never looked back. Gurpreet was very helpful and always kept to his word. Gurpreet was having a house completely refurbished. After looking at the property (which he let us look around whilst the construction work was being undertaken) we realised the house was in a great location. The property was ready on the date that Gurpreet promised and our son moved in. The property was of a high standard and the room was spacious. Unlike many landlords, who do not respond to phone calls or emails, Gurpreet has always responded promptly and efficiently, and is a totally approachable likeable person. I would thoroughly recommend him and Surrey Student Homes to any students or parents!
We decided to renew our contract with Mr Tulsi for a second year as he has been very accommodating and approachable, if we have had any issues he has resolved them in a timely, professional manner. We would strongly recommend him as a landlord.
'Very helpful landlord always responds to problems or issues immediately. The two houses I've lived in were in great condition and in super locations. I highly recommend getting accommodation with Surrey Student Homes.
Mr Tulsi as a landlord is efficient, professional and approachable at all times and I would have no hesitation in recommending Surrey Student Homes. I had a very good letting experience in my first year and chose Mr Tulsi to be my landlord for the second year.
“From my experience of having Mr Tulsi as a landlord is that the house is well maintained and if there are any problems that require attention they will do their best to solve it. They are also very friendly which makes it easy to build up a good relationship. This is why I have chosen Mr Tulsi to be my landlord for the 2nd consecutive year”
"One of the best landlords I have encountered in Guildford. Not only is there genuine care involved for the tenants, but understanding for certain sitautions as well. Any problems that were encountered with the house, for whatever reason, were dealt with in a timely manner and done to perfection! Would not recommend anyone else better to rent a property from! :)"
"Friendly and trustworthy landlord who was always quick to respond to any problems"
'I stayed in a house on Southway, it was a well equipped property in an optimum location near to Tesco and the Sports Park. If ever anything was required - maintenance/any additional furniture for the house this was brought round quickly and was always very pleasant dealing the landlord. Would recommend as an easy to deal with and generally very good letting experience!'
