KEY COLLECTION

IMPORTANT: You will not be able to collect your keys without an appointment. If you arrive at our office unannounced, we may not be able to give them to you.

Please give us a call on 0114 2667666 from 9am on Wednesday 24th June 2015 in   order to book an appointment to collect your keys. If you can't get through please keep trying. Please don't leave a voicemail as we cannot guarantee and appointment this way. It’s obviously a busy time of year so this helps us make sure we have the keys ready for you on the day.

You cannot collect your keys before your tenancy start date.

You do not have to pick your keys up on the first day of your contract.

If you would like someone else to pick your keys up for you, please let us know.

If you and your housemates are picking up keys on the same day please only make one appointment (only one of you needs to pick up the keys though). However, if you are all planning on moving on different days you can just pick your own keys up.

If you are planning to live in the property over the summer months, please let us know so that we can arrange for your property to be cleaned ASAP.

We cannot accept key collection appointments via email. 

Safety In Your Home
Monday, 13th October 2014
13 October 2014

 Now that you are all settled in your new homes please take a few moments to read through  this short advice section regarding safety in your new property. Although Sheffield is one of the UK's safest 'big cities', areas dominated by student accommodation tend to have a higher rate of burglaries and it's better to be safe than sorry.

A burglary can be a very upsetting for anyone, let alone a student living in rented property for the first time. Students are more often than not perceived as easy prey for burglars, but there are a number of small things that you and your housemates can do in order to limit the chances that you will fall victim.

The simplest way to avoid being seen as an easy target is to 'de-student' the front of your house. Don't advertise your university in the window, for example events or elections and take down any posters or typical paraphernalia that might indicate you are students (a traffic cone is the obvious stereotype!).

You should also avoid displaying any expensive possessions in windows and in addition doing simple things like leaving lights on and closing the curtains whilst you’re out will also help. You should make sure all of the windows and doors are securely locked, even if you think someone is still in the house. Burglar alarms are also an obvious deterrent, so if you're the last one out make sure to use it if you have one, whether you're going to lectures or out for the night.

Also remember that your neighbours can be your greatest ally. Get to know them and make sure they know who lives at your house and more importantly who doesn't. Finally, if you do see any suspicious behaviour please call the police straight away.

Although you are very unlikely to get burgled, hopefully you will find this advice useful.

A LETTER FROM OLD TENANTS TO NEW TENANTS -
 
 
AND A FEW OF OUR LOVELY GOOGLE REVIEWS -
 
 
I have rented a student house with PJ Properties for two years. I would not hesitate to recommend renting a property from them. They are very good communicators and if you ever need anything repaired they will get it sorted as quickly as possible .
 
I have been with PJ Properties for the last two years. They have been extremely helpful in sorting out any problems we've had with the house, from replacing our oven to changing light bulbs! They are always quick to send someone out.

PJ were a great lettings agent for us for a year. We were a mixture of Young Professionals and a mature Student. All issues were sorted with minimal fuss, and they allowed us to liaise with tradesmen as and when needed. Would highly recommend them.
 
I have rented 2 properties over 3 years with PJ Properties as a postgraduate and my experience was very positive. PJ are extremely diligent and thorough in response to any query regarding the property as well as being very approachable and polite.

 

 

Rented a student house for a year and there were no problems during my stay. In case we needed repairs they would quickly send a repairman. Communication wise they were brilliant. I would recommend them if you're looking for a student house.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I rented as a student for two years with PJ properties in two different houses. The rent was always competitive and the houses very clean and modern. PJ were very good landlords, always on hand to fix any problems we had.

 

 

 

James Ridgway

We've rented a property from PJ properties over the last year and it's been great. The house had been good, and dealing with the staff at PJ properties is painless and straightforward.

 Tom Pindar

Stayed in one of the houses PJ Properties managed in my third university year. Had absolutely no issues and the company were pleasant and approachable, dealing with any requests promptly and efficiently. The process of moving in was made very easy.

Chris Capewell

My girlfriend and I (a young, professional couple) rented a property with this company for 3 years (2010-13) and we had an extremely positive experience. Any problems were dealt with efficiently and promptly. Mark, our landlord, went out of his way to sort out everything we asked for almost immediately and was generally an excellent landlord. We would definitely recommend this company

Daniel Mercer

PJs provided an excellent, well-maintained house with modern facilities. Virtually no issues - the occasional problem was resolved very quickly by reputable contractors - a stress-free experience for us.
