Kindly note that legally, letting agents need to publish information about their tenancy fees, government-approved redress schemes and client money protection schemes on their website and on third party websites (on which agents are listed). For properties to lease/rent in England, agents need to keep this information up to date and precise on allAgents or specify within the property description.

Complaints Procedure

Abaco Estates prides itself on providing a high level of service and we are constantly looking at ways we can improve.
Should anyone feel that they have not been fairly treated, aggrieved in any way or feel that our service could have
been better I am very keen to hear from you.

Our goal is that all parties feel good once the deal is done.
