    Made a huge error with our contract renewal. Charged us then claimed new comntract was invalid.

    Took ages to get blinds ready on house.

    Really rude and refused to apologize despite errors

    Have bought and sold through King and Chasemore this year. A new team has clearly distanced themselves from previous comments on here - I found them great to deal with. They sold my property very quickly where my previous agent failed and they were always on the end of the phone when I needed them. A few minor issues on my purchase were 'nipped in the bud' early on which made the whole process very smooth. If I move again, will definitely be in touch. Thank you all.

    I contacted a member of staff from the Storrington branch inviting him to value and market my house
    During his visit he told me that he had one or two people that would definitely be interested in my house
    cutting a long conversation short, he went on to say that if I paid £200 up front it would speed up the process, better and wider advertising. I stupidly signed, but did say not to withdraw any money until I had checked my bank (i would let him know the next day) however, when I checked by bank statement the money had been withdrawn. I was furious, rang the office, also called in... (read more)

    Agent did not turn up to the appointment, although i got confirmation that she was coming on the the day itself. Waited for about half an hour then rang again and was told agent has gone to another appointment (?!!) So i asked the man answering the phone call what was happening, he said he would try to locate veronica. I tried to give him my number so he could ring me back, unfortunately he hung up on me. To save yourself time, and frustration, please do not choose this estate agent.

    I contacted King and Chasemore for a market appraisal. I chose them because they telephoned me every day for six months, because I had previously been on the market 2 years ago.
    At first they photographed and marketed and promised everything under the sun. Feedback, a sale, negotiations, a regular update. This is not what I experienced. Their pitch was agressive, to say the least. Based on a couple of offers, they advised me drop my price but I refused. After 5 weeks of scattered communication between 5 staff members and myself I dis-instructed King and Chasemore and went elsewhere for... (read more)

    I rented out my house with King & Chasemore because of their name, but now i realise the smaller the company, the better.
    The staff themselves were nice enough, but there was so many errors in the paperwork that i couldnt risk them working for me any longer. (they blamed it all on head-office..i dont doubt that)
    I even had to carry out the mid-tenacy inspection by myself, even after paying 10% a month, i just expected a lot more of a service, in the end i ended up having to pay £600 to get rid of them (the agent, not the tenants). Imagine my annoyance when 2 weeks after this the tenants announced they were moving out...they said 'oh, we told the office 3 weeks ago'.

    King and Chasemore have lied constantly during my tenancy to myself and my landlords. They told my landlords I could no longer afford the rent so that they could kick me out and increase the rent, getting then a larger %. Legally you can only increase by 10% per year but this wasn't enough of an increase fir them. They are also brutal with the company they use to 'check out'. Conveniently much more thorough than 'check in'; as a result are claiming to keep 70% of my deposit! Don't trust these agents, they will lie and screw you over for money!!
    Steer well clear!!!

    What could King & Chasemore do to change your mind??

    “Other Agent fees were far more reasonable. Another way King and Chasemore con money from people. Disgraceful.”

    I was skeptical at first about using King & Chasemore estate agents due to other estate agents warning me of bad reviews. I would just like to say that my experience couldnt of been any better, The professionalism of every single staff member was outstanding. I was updated every single step of the way from how many viewings i had right through to the day i handed my keys over. I can not reccomend this agency enough, I advise anyone wanting to sell or buy to go and visit the team at the Preston Park office.

    Absolutely dreadful agent , use them at your peril, and that’s coming from some-one who actually used to be an estate agent. I cannot stress how bad they are. All the staff are inexperienced and do not have a clue how to progress a sale. They are only good for meeting you at properties and doing viewing, and they can’t even do that very well. The managers don’t have a clue what they are doing and could quite possible sabotage the whole deal. God only knows what they actually tell sellers and vendors, you get the impression its rather like Chinese whispers and actually what you told them gets changed as its passed down the chain. They lie, make up everything, and basically do absolutely nothing once they have the sale agreed. I have never come across such an unprofessional agent. Dreadful, dreadful, dreadful. Do not use them. I can’t even put into words how bad they are. Oh , and do not use their solicitor , who never returns calls or emails. A bit like the agent.

    My experience with the K&C office in Kemp Town left me exasperated. I got little or no feedback, was given incorrect information and was also told lies. I had to do a lot of the work post offer, the agents just disappeared once we had a sale agreed.

    One of the worst agents I have ever used. Terrible!!! Did nothing to sell the property over a 6 week period. Was not available to discuss the status or options. Even put the "for sale" sign outside a house two doors away which caused major problems with neighbours and sent us a letter congratulating us on the sale of our house even though we had not received any offer. Such a poor customer service is shocking!!! Even after we cancelled the agreement, the continued to advertise the property.

    Had a number of agents out all very similar all trying to strong arm me into signing up with them with the promise of a "Quick Sale" King & Chasemore sent round their regional manager Tim Jacks straight away you could tell this guy knew his apples, very pleasant, interested in what i wanted and a wealth of knowledge on the area and what my property could achieve. Put up with my endless calls (about property i was buying and not through him!) got me a good price and had no issues (apart from my solicitor and agent i was buying through). Have already recommended to a friend of mine looking to move

    I am currently trying to find a property to rent in the Brighton area and am finding the experience really disheartening.

    For the past six months, I have been looking for a one bedroom flat for myself and my Wife.

    Throughout the process we have been consistently lied to by letting agents in the most callous and calculated way.

    Some of the lies are small- such as promising to phone us back to tell us if we have been successful in being chosen for a property we have asked for. Thus far, not one has called us back.

    Some of the lies are big- we were recently told the property we... (read more)

    I found King & Chasemore through Right Move for a property that I was told was dog friendly so I went to view it. I viewed the property and wanted to take it but as there were 2 others viewing the property they would let me know. I went to the K&C office in Hove East Sussex after the viewing as I was passing and spoke to Jonathan who was helpful and took my details that were scribbled on a rough note pad and said that he would call me that day or tomorrow with an answer.
    I heard nothing that day so I called them the next day to be told that it was Jonathan's day off today and... (read more)

    Avoid this agency at all costs. The staff can be very unprofessional when you need them. Had to call a lawyer twice to ask for help as they were trying to enter my property without me being there and tried to convince me that that's the law when it isn't. They also constantly say they will call back and then don't. The contract renewal was due months ago and I'm only able so sign it now, late. I'm so happy when my tenancy is over so that I don't need to deal with their unprofessional manners anymore. Also their fees are ridiculous as per usual here in Brighton.

    Typical estate agency where no one wants to make any effort to match landlords with tenants. I explained at length my financial circumstances - just left my last position after 7 years to start up my own company. Offered one year's rent upfront on a one year lease but the landlord apparently prefers to offer a one year lease to someone who is in employment today but may not have a job tomorrow.. The agent was unable or unwilling to explain to the landlord the benefit of receiving all of the money for the lease upfront rather than be paid monthly and be wholly dependent upon the tenant remaining in employment for the period of the lease. One wonders what estate agents like this actually do to justify their commissions. Apparently they have "rules" and anything that is slightly different to the "rules"does not merit consideration.

    What could King & Chasemore do to change your mind??

    “They should have explained to the landlord clearly and concisely that they had a prospective tenant who was happy to pay one year\'s rent upfront for the one year lease that was being offered. They might also have added that the prospective tenant had been renting a property via Hamptons for the past 7 years, at double the monthly rent that is being asked for the property they are offering, with an impeccable record throughout all of that time (Hamptons, like King and Chasemore are part of Countrywide Plc.). The fact that they were unable to convey this information to the landlord speaks volumes about either the mental acuity of this company\'s employees or their willingness to do the job they are being paid to do, i.e.match landlords to tenants. Go figure.”

    At a recent viewing Anna was not only well presented, polite and friendly but very patient and knowledgable of both vendor, property and community. She demonstrated her professionalism and passion for the industry which is always nice to see- 5 Star service.

    We had our property for sale with the Eastbourne office and accepted a 2% fee. We expected a Gold service. Our experiences turned out to be far from our original expectations.
    We weren't told that the property had been put on the web, or shown any advertising. When we went online and found that the house advertised. The photographs were appalling the main picture of the house showed more of the grass verge, footpath and the wall at the front of the house. This made a large three bedroom look like a small cottage as it was so far away. Some pictures of the inside were no better.

    If you want someone to over-estimate the value of your property, put it up for sale, then wait and see what happens then these are the guys. If you want communication, professional service, considered honest opinions, then you need to look elsewhere. After they put my property on the market the problems began. The description on the websites was woeful and I asked them to change some details and gave them really basic stuff to add. They did it, eventually. They advertised an open day for three weekends running and didn't take it off the website until I asked and they have never been in... (read more)

    “Behaved in a professional manner instead of the, sadly, inept stereotype.”

    Appalling service would be a complement for K&C. We contacted K&C for a valuation, and only as their sign happened to be on a property next door. They came out within a few days, but from then on it was a constant chase to get any information and a constant stream of lies "I will print it out now and bring it around immediately" was a good one... just prior to doing nothing and going away the next day. I spoke to at least 3 of their staff that all made promised to get us the information immediately, but after 3 weeks(!!!) we have finally had enough. Today's laughable response from them was "we offer [valuation as] a free service" to which I immediately responded "but you offer no service at all". Basically I have told these jokers that we, and no one we know, will ever have dealing with their company again.

    What could King & Chasemore do to change your mind??

    “Not lie repeatedly? Not ignore (repeatedly) a potential custom with 3 properties in their area.”

    This business appears to operate as a mortgage advisor with a sideline in estate agency. As a result of our experiences with them we now actively avoid properties marketed by K&C and certainly would never engage them to sell a property.

    - After putting in an offer on a property with the local office marketing it, there was silence for several days. It turned out that this was because we had originally registered with an office on the other side of town and, apparently because of K&C's policies and inter-office rivalries, the local office wouldn't get a purchase by us (or a... (read more)

    We were prospective first time buyers with a large deposit. We had already met with a financial advisor from an independant agent and so knew what we were able to borrow and who the mortgage would be with when we had decided upon a property to buy. We saw the property in question and asked for a viewing, to be fair this was accomodated quite quickly and we went on a Thursday evening. We liked the property and so followed up with an offer on Friday which was not accepted by the vendor so we went in with a second offer which was accepted. We then phoned our Mortgage man who advised that if King... (read more)

    What could King & Chasemore do to change your mind??

    “There is no need to have a mortgage in place before offering on a property, they need to be honest with themselves as well as those who wish to buy through them, whilst acting in the best interest of their client. King and Chasemore repeatedly told us that it was the vendor requesting assurances that we had the money to proceed before accepting the final offer but we phoned about a different property and were asked to jump through the same hoops so it seems more company policy than the vendor. Honesty is the best policy and this agent more than the others that we have dealt with recently DO NOT MAKE THE GRADE.”

    Excellent note and unfortunately this appears to be K&C's MO. Similar tactics were used for the purchase of our house in the Crawley office. Costs us £12k. No work was carried out by the agent on a property that carried a number of idiosyncrasies (Listing et al..). We also decided to rent the property for a relatively short period. From there, we suffered the full brunt of K&C's staff's incompetence and "commercial acumen". Massively inflated quotes for repairs, no care taken to protect our interests, complete disregard of damage made by the tenants and employment of even more incompetent parties to complete other tasks. All in, having to deal with people with little or no ethics and professional aptitude for their actual role (i.e. serving the client) is difficult. The constant battling with one's agent is simply appalling and requires reform. I suspect this to be an industry-wide issue although there are notable exceptions which stand out as the overall level of care applied is so poor. Pete.

    Anjie- Amazing service provided by this letting agent who I cannot recommend highly enough, professional well managed team who found tenants for my property inside a week at a very good rental, they then have been managing my house for the last few months, particualr praise to Peter and his team and Kerry who takes care of the property management side.
    Look no further when choosing an agent they should be renamed King and Caremore! compared to the other womabats in Horsham who sadly i used in the past!
