I used Beechwood to rent out my flat in Millers Dale. I was always chasing the rent and on one occasion the rent cheque bounced. Serious warning signs that an agent is using your money (client\'s money) to run their business - this is fraud. I travelled 250 miles and collect my paperwork and keys and insisted the Deposit be transferred from their DPS account to my Companies account which was done. I really feel for those people who have lost money by using Beechwoods. I own my own letting ...

We were suspicious then but more so now..Helen did not return a tenant deposit owed to us in 1996. Unwittingly, we used her to sell a property for us while we were overseas; and before closing was allowing the future owners to come & go in our property as they pleased. I have no proof, but suspect she kept funds to herself....

What agent could do to change your mind?
We believe that she acted unprofessionally and there was no one to hold her accountable as she seemed to run the office. She took full advantage of the fact that we were ex-pats.

The property was originally owned by my late daughter in her name for 2 years ( a long story ). She never received a penny rent. I took ownership in july 2009 and received 3 months rent in 18 months. I live in spain and on visiting the uk for my daughters funeral i was assured that things would be sorted. I hope she rots in hell. That money belongs to my grandson. Ian probyn....

Left property as a tenant on 19/09/2012 and still waiting for deposit of £550 to be returned to me. I sent numerous emails and left messages on phone number which always was a recorded message, the phone line is now disconnected 5/11/2012. I feel completely conned by Helen Gregory and her staff as nothing is followed thru. Very disappointing as I then found out Beechwoods had closed the Matlock office with no notification and had to find out by seeing a notice on the window of shop front....

We have used Beechwood properties for the past six years for both our properties. Only found out by accident what was happening and tried to ring all beechwood numbers but to no avail. Cannot believe somebody that you could trust would con you like this. I hope she finally gets a conscience, and do the right thing and pay us back the £1700 that she owes us!....

Terrible - Letting Agents should be governed! Owed nearly £1k in deposit - the Director Helen Gregory lies and contridicts herself in every email/correspondence!! She should be struck off as a director and not allowed to trade she is a danger to the public. She failed to register deposit with DPS scheme. I have now served her with a Statutory Demand to recover my money followed by Bankruptcy - STAY WELL CLEAR !!...

Rented from Beechwood since 2010. They had three offices then Chesterfield, Bakewell and Matlock. First they closed the Chesterfield office, then Bakewell. As of 11-09-2012 the Matlock office is closed, but you are told to leave an answer message on the Matlock landline which obviously no one is responding to. They say they are opening a new office back in Chesterfield as of October 1st 2012 but at the moment they look like a rental agency who are homeless. BIZARRE!...

TERRIBLE COMPANY. You never get the rents owed to you,, unless you threaten them with legal action. The communication in the office is unproffesional. Hope people read these reviews before using them as an agent....

I rented a property through this estate agent. I moved out on the 17th December 2011. I waited until the new year before chasing the return of my deposit due to festive period. On the 19th January I chased this again and was finally told that the landlord had approved the return of my deposit and that it should be with me in the next few days. On the 30th of January, I contacted Beechwoods again chasing my deposit. I was then advised on the 1st of February that the return of my deposit was mi...

Fix all of the issues above, with a written apology for lying, a GOGW for the hassle and time I have wasted contacting the company.

We maintain that rent was withheld on a number of occasions. At first we received it after pointing this out, but as time went on we did not. We calculate that they owed us over 1K. It was never possible to speak to the lettings manager....
