We have been with Lyons for a short time since about Sep 2015, and we have never had an issue at all. They were so great to deal with when it came to my husband ( I am on his acct) and I to find the place we wanted to live. We told them how much we wanted to spend, max being 800 and they literally gave us a list of homes that were available and comfortable for our living. At one point a home we were going to rent was unable to receive internet so we decided that was not the home for us because my husband school work is based solely online, they had no problem with this and showed us even more homes in the same area that was still in our range. Coming from multiple apartments that we rented with Lyons is the first company that we have been with in a home rental and we are 100% satisfied. Have always fixed any problem. People who complain about fees are the same people who probably do not pay in time for rent to be due which is easily by thee 5th of each month.
As an owner of nine rental homes in Valdosta that allows Lyons Property Management to manage my properties, I can tell you that none of my tenants have ever once, in five years, complained to me about their experiences with Lyons Property Management. When you deal with hundreds of tenants on a regular basis, there will certainly be those who feel dissatisfied because they did not receive their entire deposit back or because a repair wasn't completed the same hour that they called. Service providers, for repair calls, are often busy and can not stop all of their other commitments to come immediately, but most will respond promptly to urgent calls. If you saw the way some former tenants left my houses and some skip out owing rent and leaving piles of trash and damages, you would better understand the need for a security deposit which sometimes does not even cover the expenses much less the unpaid rent. I can assure you that Lyons Property Management is compliant will all the state laws and regulations when dealing with their tenants because they are not going to risk their Broker license and their business reputation, that they have built over decades, trying to cheat people. I do not work for Lyons Property Management and I do not speak on their behalf. I am only an owner of rental properties that has personally dealt with them now for over five years. Please remember that the only people that usually post reviews are those that are unhappy and given that Lyons Property Management has dealt with thousands of tenants over the years, the few bad reviews posted here are not representative of their business practices. Yes, there are some fees upon move out like re-keying fee but that is clearly stated in the lease, as is everything else. I can also say that they will not allow me to put a vacant house back up for rent before it is thoroughly cleaned. Any business may have an employee that seems less than cheerful and some may be temporary and let go, but they may tarnish the image of the business while they are employed. This is true for all businesses. At times there may be a rush of people in the office, so calls might be put on hold. That may annoy some but that does not mean that they deserve to be ripped apart on an Internet review board. I find the current staff to be friendly and quite capable and would recommend them. They are among the largest property management companies in the area and you can not grow that large without being good at pleasing the greatest majority of customers, both tenants and owners. I do not believe it is possible to please everyone.
They are nice people and they work hard they stay right on top of things.If something tears up hang on they will fix it.I never had trouble with them but i dont care for the maintence man but i will get along with him for their sakes.If you need a home they will find one right for you they have homes all over south georgia so give them a call"

Worst landlords ever. I've rented 5-6 times and this is far and away the worst. Criminals! Will fee and fine the shirt off your back!! But please don't ask them to lift a finger.... Beware and STAY AWAY
