This review is based on our own personal experiences with Bentons over the course of a 2-year period. Despite the negative content which will follow, I would implore that you please interpret this as a relatively objective review, written from as much of an independent perspective as humanly possible. Most notably, we have prior experience with a number of other estate agents spanning a 10-year period and can therefore make appropriate comparisons and have reasonable expectations of Bentons as a...

What agent could do to change your mind?
1. Be honest - lies and misrepresentations of the truth are not acceptable in any form. 2. Be fair - ensure that both the tenant AND landlord adhere to the tenancy agreement 3. Don\'t be greedy - if people are renting, it\'s usually because they can\'t afford to get a foot on the property ladder. After a few hundred pounds in application fees, more than a month\'s rent in deposit, plus a further deposit, and an unexpected increase in rental fees, tenants are going to feel like the estate agent is simply out for pure financial gain. This belief is cemented into place when the deposit is withheld without any lawful justification. 4. Follow up on promises made.
Comment on agent fees
Although the initial application fees seemed expensive, they were no more expensive than any other estate agent. The original rental fee (‚£600) seemed reasonable, but the deposit of ‚£700 seemed rather unfair, as this was more than a month\'s rent. We quickly resented paying the rental fee when things began going drastically wrong, and were not visibly or promptly addressed. The additional ‚£500 deposit AND increase in rent (by ‚£20 PCM) seemed wholly unfair, particularly alongside the now contractual demand that we pay for professional carpet cleaning too.

Good photographs and treated you well on first going but were totally unsupportive when the buyer started to reduce the price at the last minute. Didn\'t understand that gaming was occuring and that the negative points of the house were being over emphasised to reduce the price. The agent seemed to favour the buyer presumably so they could get their fee. In hindsight they would not be the right agent for the city and should concentrate on county sales....
